I just came back from my holiday in Dubrovnik having stayed at Room Gradac for a week. It is the best location if you want to escape the tourist crowds of the old town but still be just 3 min away from the main gate to the old town. There are ONLY 20+ steps to get to the room. In most of the places in Dubrovnik you have to walk 100 / 200 steps up. This isn’t a flat city, but Room Gradac is ideal location. You can walk around and come back to your place as many times as you want without thinking you need to climb many steps. There is a nice restaurant just 50 m away from the place. And if you go around the building and take one of the small side streets, you will get to a little beach and a nice seaside restaurant which is hidden away from the most of the tourists. You can make your own little breakfast in the room and on the way to the old town there is a bakery where you can buy fresh bread. The family even puts coffee and milk in your little fridge for you to make and enjoy your breakfast. A very nice and kind family. They even made pancakes for me on my arrival. You will like staying there. The family lives next door if you need anything, but otherwise you have absolute privacy there. Hrvoje speaks perfect English and is always very quick answering your emails and helping with any information you need.
I and my wife stayed here for a night.
Family is a very warm host, greeted with pancakes to settle in :-)
Has all the necessities, and easy to access.
Barely 5min walking from old town and pile gate .
Host were helpful even while communicating via email, checked a few things for us in Dubrovnik.
PS - car parking is expensive in Dubrovnik, so this is better for those who come via bus/ flight, etc.
