Dubrovnik Old Town

I'm debating where to stay inside Old Town or right outside (at the Hilton). I understand that it's close but will I be going up/down many steps every time I go into Old Town? Are the restuarants mainly in Old Town? Traveling with a 2.5 year, thus the question. Thanks.

The Hilton would be a short walk to the Pile gate - about 5 minutes. The only stairs you'll encounter are those at the gate.

Restaurants are mostly in Old Town but there are a couple around the Hilton.

Perhaps an apartment may be even more convenient with a small child?

We stayed in apartment just outside of the Ploce gate, at the other end of the old town. There are no stairs at the Ploce gate but many of the apartments in this area have quite a few.

We used this Dubrovnik Apartment Source to find our apartment as we weren't wanting too many stairs either. We found their descriptions quite good and they were very responsive to any questions I had. We stayed in the Troubadour apartment which was a 5 minute walk to Old Town with a bakery and grocery store very near by.

The Hilton has a great location near the Pile entrance so that would be a good place to stay. Apartments are nice like DebinthePeg said so maybe that is something you might want to look into.

DebinthePeg, I am thinking of staying at Troubadour Apartments or Bijele Apartments in Old Town. Were you happy at Troubadour or do you think it would be better to be in the Old Town? It looks a very short walk to the Gate.

Was there much noise around the area at night?

Thanks for you advice

During high season the young adults party until the wee hours and deliveries begin very early. Stay either in Ploce or Pile areas. Much better choice.

Thanks dubrovniktravelady,

As I understand Troubadour Apartments are in Ploce so am hoping it would be quiet but there looks like a large car park very close.

Bijele Apartments (old town) say they have soundproofed their windows??

Another option is Lausion Apartment (old town) but it does look like its close to the cathedral, how often do the bells chime?

We are travelling late June, we would love to stay in the Old Town, but not much point if we arent going to be able to sleep!

Thanks for your advice

I agree with Dubrovniktravelady. The old town can be incredibly noisy until late into the night. I personally wouldn't want it for myself and certainly not with a 2.5 year old You would be much better off outside the Pile or Ploce gates
