One of only a handful of hotels situated inside Dubrovnik’s medieval walls, the big draw here is that everything is within walking distance – from the Rector’s Palace and Gundulic market, to the cable car up to Mount Srd.

The other x-factor is the open-air, rooftop restaurant, which gives panoramic views over the city’s patchwork of terracotta roofs. Below, the eight rooms have a chic, boutique-style feel, although some are a touch on the small side – inevitable in such an old building.

There’s a small spa, offering Thai massage for post-sightseeing pampering, and a ground floor whisky bar, but most guests settle in at the rooftop for sunset drinks. The restaurant has an inventive menu of locally-sourced produce – the lamb with sweet potato and swordfish with hummus are both excellent.

Surrounding area

The Stari Grad’s location is unbeatable if you want to be in the buzzy heart of the Old City – it’s one of only a handful of hotels inside the city walls.  Lying in a narrow stone alley off the Stradun, the hotel is surrounded by elegant Venetian townhouses and buildings, many of which are still owned and lived in by local people.  Although the Stradun – the city’s main street, lined with shops and restaurants – is just a stone’s throw away, the tangle of alleys that surround the Stari Grad are shady and much calmer.

There’s no traffic noise, but the church bells do chime from early in the morning, and there’s a constant – if gentle – buzz from nearby bars and restaurants.
