The best boutique hotels in Dubrovnik for a stay with style in Croatia’s magnificent walled city

Dubrovnik now has an excellent choice of boutique hotels, mainly occupying old stone buildings inside the famed city walls, with funky interiors combining an eclectic mix of period and modern furnishings. You might find charming 1930s villas set in a gardens high above the sea with fantastic views across the water to the old town; or stumble across quirky, purpose-built architectural wonders with contemporary interior design and specially commissioned artworks. Whichever style you prefer, here’s our pick of the best boutique hotels in Dubrovnik, including the best for al fresco dining, heated pools, excellent breakfasts and ancient architecture.

st josephs, dubrovnik, croatia
St Joseph’s occupies a beautifully restored 16th-century stone building in Dubrovnik’s pedestrian-only old town. This lovely boutique hotel is particularly popular with discerning couples on a romantic city break seeking a chic but unpretentious retreat, offering sightseeing and a measure of independence (each suite comes with a kitchenette). Guests are treated to an extremely indulgent breakfast, brought to the room, which includes organic smoothies and freshly baked croissants. All the main sights and restaurants lie within a 10-minute walk, and Banje beach is just outside the town walls.

hotel stari grad, dubrovnik, croatia
Old-fashioned charm meets modern comfort at this romantic 17th-century hotel in Dubrovnik’s old town. Interior décor verges on ‘boudoir-chic’, with lots of velvet upholstery and gilt-framed mirrors. Steep stone stairs lead up four floors, with two rooms on each, and on the fifth level there’s a tiny but stunningly romantic rooftop restaurant, where a cooked-to-order breakfast is served. The rooms are stylish and plush, with contemporary bathrooms and L’Occitane products. The hotel’s Icona Thai Spa is situated across the alley, on the ground floor of an old stone building with a lovely vaulted ceiling.

Villa Orsula, Dubrovnik, Croatia
With just 13 rooms, Villa Orsula provides the sort of personalised service that only a small hotel can achieve – you’ll be treated more as a dear friend than a hotel guest. Expect a warm welcome, tailored suggestions on things to do and see from the concierge, and 24-hour room service. From the garden, planted with fragrant pines and lavender, steep stone steps lead down to a lovely bathing platform, with sun beds, beach towels and easy access into the sea, and views towards Dubrovnik’s medieval walls and Lokrum islet.

Fresh* Sheets Kathedral Bed and Breakfast, Dubrovnik, Croatia
This chic guesthouse, set within Dubrovnik’s medieval walls, is informal, sociable, cultured and discretely sophisticated – rather like an upmarket hostel, where you have your own private room but can meet other travellers. Interiors combine an eclectic mix of period artworks and antiques, up-cycled furniture and contemporary details. The six rooms all have plenty of natural light, and have comfy beds, quirky antique pieces, sweeping curtains, fluffy woollen rugs and cushion, walls hung with black-and-white Dubrovnik photos.

one suite hotel, dubrovnik, croatia
A hip design hotel with 18 rooms and suites, decorated with commissioned artworks. Designed by 3LHD architects (who also did Hotel Lone in Rovinj). The interiors are strangely ‘urban’ for Dalmatia, though the artworks (painting and photography by local artists) reference the sea, adding a sense of place. Charcoal grey walls, oak wood floors, and retro-chic furniture by Croatian designers Prostoria set a contemporary mood. The ground-floor Lokal bar opens onto the garden terrace with turquoise deck-chairs and towering lime trees. There’s also a gym and a small rooftop infinity pool with a wooden deck.
