We are planning a two week holiday in dubrovnik in August of this year. however, we are worried as all the hotels seem to be a long way from the town...will we have to get a bus? we would like to walk in the evening...is this possible? We also want a hotel with a swimming pool, we particularly like the grand hotel park..is it possible to walk from here?
are there lots of places to visit...and what is dubrovnik like in the evening?

The grand park is in Lapad, It's about a 15 minute
Walk from the "Stari Grad" Old Town, during the day the buses are every 5/10 minutes and a little less frequent at night.
The Taxis are cheap anyway and all the hotels have cab numbers, and its a five minute cab ride from Lapad to the Old town.

As for the evenings, it depends what your after!!
The Stradun and the streets off it have some good bars,although its mainly restraunts, a goodplace to go for drinking is Bourbon Street which is a street which runs off the big hill that goes towards the old town (nearly opposite the hotel belle view) there you will find 6 or 7 bars all next to each other, And you can have a good night down there, Its funny that bourbon street never really gets mentioned on this forum?

There is a nightclub opposite the bus station, years ago it was called Sun City, and me and my mates have always called it that since, however it has changed names a couple of times since.

I've not been to Dubrovnik for 18 months or so, but I've heard that a couple of other clubs have sprung up, I'm going in the last week in July, first week in August so I'll let you know via here.

The Hotel Kompas is a good reasonable priced hotel in Lapad (just up from the Grand Park) that has a swimming pool, the hotel Vis is ok but doesnt have an outdoor pool, however it does have its own private beech (shail not sand) which is good.

If you've got any more questions about dubrovnik, just drop a post on here and I'll try and help, Me and my mates have been a good few times to Dubrovink and always enjoy it, infact I'd say Dubrovnik is by far my favourite holiday destination (closely followed by Rovinj) and we're only young lads, but if its a brash spain type holiday your looking for then look else where, but if your looking for the best of both worlds, where you can chill out with very nice friendly people, with top weather and great food and a good drink then dubrovnik is defo the place to go.

Sun City is now Club Latino. Open from midnight. I thought it was a lap dancing club when I first saw the outside, but saw the posters around town said it was a night club.
As a matter of interest I am going to Barcelona on September, I heard its just like Dubrovnik. Booked a flight with bmibaby for Ł100 return. Shame I cant do it for Dubrovnik, flights too expensive.

Just a few notes. Sun City is not = Latino club. Sun City is history, Latino is in completely different area in the town. : )
Bourbon Street is history too! (Thank GOD for that if you ask me), now all nightlife has moved to the Old Town and the area around it.

Katie, we are in Dubrovnik next week and are staying in appartment. We have stayed in the Lapad region where the Grand Park is. Its a nice hotel and I would say take you around 25 mins to walk to old town - although there are regular bus connections. The hotels near the old town are quite expensive. I you require any further details then pls email me.

Hotel Lapad is nice, I stayed there in June 2003 for 2 weeks. It's in Lapad and has a swimming pool. It's just a five miute walk along the harbour to the bus stop, and a five minute bus ride to the old town. The bus coming back drops us right outside the hotel. You have to buy bus tickets at the one of many tabaco/news kiosks before you board the bus. We used to buy 8 per day. 2 each to get the old town and 2 to return to the hotel during the day, and the same at night. The cost is only 80p (UK) per ticket or $1 or 1euro.
The advantage of not having hotels in the old town is it keeps its character, unspoilt.
Hundreds of thousands of people stay in these hotels so you can too.
