I am planning a 12 day trip to Slovenia and Croatia either in May or September of 2015. I am planning on going to Ljubljana in Slovenia, and then to Istria Croatia (Pula/Rovinj/Porec-stying on one place and venturing out from there), then Split and last Dubrovnik. I am looking for advice on places to stay. I was hoping that it would be a little cheaper than Western Europe but am finding that it is still quite pricey to visit these countries, more so than I expected. Especially now that they are using the Euro. I don't mind smaller hotels or bed and breakfasts. I do however prefer to have a bathroom in my room. I would rather not share a bathroom. I would also like a place that has wireless internet being that it will be the best way for me to communicate to people using Viber etc...
Has anyone got any advice on places to stay that are not extremely pricey? I would like it to be $150-200 a night or less if that is possible.. Otherwise a 12 day trip will be a bit more expensive that I can afford.
I know this is a lot to ask, but any advice would be appreciated.
