My husband and I took an 11 day car trip through Slovenia and Croatia using Trip Advisor and Rick Steves recommended hotels/B&Bs/Sobes throughout the trip. As mentioned by Rick Steves, most of these small B&Bs either require or appreciate payment in cash so plan ahead! Bank-o-mats outside regular banks are the safest places to get cash. All accommodations worked very well for us but each had something very special and something less special. Here are my criteria: price, cleanliness, room appeal, mattress comfort, helpfulness of staff/owner, location, referral source (either TA for Trip Advisor or RS for Rick Steves), and special considerations. My scale is 1=excellent and 2=good since we were pleased with all the accommodations.
Dubrovnik, Croatia – Villa Regusa, Konavoska 3, Ploce, 20000 Dubrovnik. Breakfast not included, no onsite parking but owner will assist you in finding a place to park. Ratings: Price - #1, Cleanliness - #1, Room appeal - #2 (I had asked for a quiet room so was given one on the side of the Villa that didn't have any view. Since the Villa is so high up on the mountain, I think a room with a view would still have been quiet so would opt for that if we stay there again), Mattress comfort - #2, Helpfulness of owner - #1, Location - #1, Referral source – TA, Special Considerations – many, many stairs to climb to get down to the road to Old Town. If you have serious knee, hip, or foot issues, this may not be a good option. Owner was very helpful - she took considerable effort to locate someone to do our laundry on very short notice. They also provide instant coffee/tea and kettles so you can prepare coffee/tea in the morning. We enjoyed our mini refrigerator too!
