We are an active 60 year old couple looking to stay 3 nights in Dubrovnik in Sept. and I am very confused about which area to stay and what sort of accommodations would be best. I have been looking at what look like charming apartments in the old town, but am concerned about the noise and lack of patios or balconies. I have also been looking at locations outside of old town having 10 - 30 minute walks to the old town gate. There seem to be some great apartments with view balconies, and of course there are the big hotels as well. I like charm, but I also like nice accommodations and I would like to keep the price under $200 a night. I would love to hear from others who have stayed at various locations and the pros and cons. Thanks.
