As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 25th of August, 2020, more flights have started taking off for Dubrovnik, the streets and restaurants are livelier, and something is finally happening in Croatia’s tourist Mecca. Of course, each of the tourism workers has their own personal story to tell, some dealt with the coronavirus more easily, some took it harder, and some will be buried by it.

Local portal Dubrovacki dnevnik investigated the situation with the city’s private accommodation.

Last year, which was a record one, it was impossible to find an apartment in a good location and with good reviews for less than 100 euros per night in the peak season. This year the prices are much lower. A quick look at and Airbnb will reveal numerous apartments at fair prices in Dubrovnik. In fact, in the last week of August, Dubrovnik’s private accommodation has never been more affordable for foreign tourists.

Thus, in a beautifully decorated apartment within the city’s historic walls, the price per night at the end of August is a mere 79 euros. This apartment on Airbnb has a high rating of 4.9 based on 60 reviews. It even has a roof terrace with a beautiful view of the famous UNESCO city. In the first part of August it was well filled, but in the second half, things weren’t quite so. As for September, seven days have been booked so far.

Prices within Dubrovnik’s city walls for dates in the last week of August start at 45 euros for a studio apartment, and most renters provide accommodation between 50 and 60 euros per night. Last year, it cost that much to spend the night outside the narrow heart of Dubrovnik, and well-kept apartments in even Mokosica were managing to be booked for higher prices last year than the apartments in the old town are in 2020.

Thus, one with a rating of 4.86, located near Siroka ulica (street), comes with a mere 58 euro price tag. It also has an extra bed, meaning it can sleep three guests. It is decorated with a multitude of antiques. Accommodation for over one hundred euros can also be found. Such a luxuriously decorated house for four guests with a garden costs 130 euros. In the first half of August it was well filled, while in the second half and for September there are no reservations for now. It has a rating of 4.92.

As for accommodation in the popular Lapad area, it is possible to find very good accommodation there for 39 euros per night for three people. There is also a barbecue in the garden. Prices in Lapad mostly range around fifty euros for the second half of August. In Gruz, private rooms can be found for as little as 30 euros, and nicely decorated apartments cost around 50 euros. Mokosica doesn’t offer much accommodation for tourists, which means that many property owners have turned to renting to families throughout the year. Despite that, a villa with a swimming pool in Mokosica comes at a cost of 117 euros per night, and it can accommodate four guests, which is a fantastic price per person.
