My husband and I usually book self catering as we like to please ourselves. We also don't like to be directly in the centre of the Town, in all the crowds and are quite happy with a short walk to get to the things we like. This was a small family run hotel with a fully equipped kitchen that could be used by guests, and a lovely patio area in a quiet street just 10 to 15 minutes walk from the Pile Gate. (there is also a regular bus to the Pile Gate that stops close to the hotel) Antonio and his family were very helpful and kind and the rooms were clean, comfortable and air conditioned (a must in August). If you are like us, then this hotel is a home from home. Dubrovnick does have a lot of steps so it wouldn't be the best destination for someone with disabilities, but, if you are hale and hearty it's great.
