If you happen to arrive in Dubrovnik without having booked a room, I would recommend walking up the hill above the Old Town. Just look for signs like this one that advertise rooms for rent. The signs might use the Croatian word for room, "sobe," or they might use the German word "zimmer" or the Italian "camere" or even the French, "chambre." Just inquire if there's a room available wherever you see such a sign. The rooms are slightly cheaper just outside the walls, and most are located less than a ten minute walk from the Old Town's main square, Luza. Plus, the views from up here are amazing.
If you come in the off season, this will be really easy and you'll benefit from a little friendly bargaining. In the summer months, if you can't find a room, just go to one of the tourist information offices along Stradun in the Old Town and book one. Just keep in mind that this is going to cost you a little extra. You can save some money by booking a room outside of the Old Town, but most of what you are likely to want to see is inside the city walls.
