Sleeping in Croatia

Hotels in Croatia cost a good 20 to 40 percent less than in Western Europe. Even fancy boutique hotels top out around $170 per night for a double room (note that Croatian hotel rates usually don't include breakfast).

However, I would rarely bother with a hotel when there are so many cheaper and more fun alternatives. Croatia's many sobe (private rooms for rent) go for $15 to $40 per double; larger apartman (apartments) cost only anywhere from $25 to $80 and have the benefit of including a kitchen so you can do some cooking on your own.

Outside the towns and cities, agroturizam (farm stays) offer a wonderful opportunity to observe Croatian life up close, and cost as little as $30 to $60 for a double room, with hearty, farm-style dinners adding just $10 to $15 to the bill (including all the house wine you can drink).

The local tourist offices (and the national one) can help arrange any of these.
