Reasonably priced, good clean room in the Old Town

Posted Sep 16, 2016 on Hotels
The owner Stjepo was warm and friendly and came to meet us at the taxi drop-off as we would not have found the sobe on our own. We were very satisfied with the room, especially the easy access it provided to all the key sights in Dubrovnik Old Town

Location-Location-Location--Fantastic!

Posted Sep 4, 2016 on Hotels
We stayed in the upstairs room of the 2 available units that had a separate living area and bathroom upstairs from the living room/kitchen. The owner's daughter picked us up at the airport for the same fee as a bus would have charged and got us to the Old Town Gate where her father met us to help us to the unit. No cars are allowed in the Old Town. The unit is historic, and has been nicely remodeled with fully functioning air conditioning, very fast WIFI and a location that is incredible. Couldn't ask for a better location or situation. The only negative is that payment can only be made in cash upon arrival, meaning carrying more cash than we would normally carry. Owner was agreeable to payment in Euro rather than Kuna which was great. Suggested things to see and do, and referred us to a self-serve laundry where we washed clothes for the remainder of our trip which still had 12 days to go. We stayed 3 nights, and really enjoyed it. We read some reviews that mentioned noise, and while we did hear some music school activity and people talking on the streets it was quite acceptable and would definitely stay again!

Thin Walls and Early Check-Out

Posted Jul 16, 2016 on Hotels
It was nice to have a little kitchen, but the 10:00 am checkout, and the cash-only policy were pretty annoying. Also, there is a switch that turns off the hot water heater, and no one told us about this, so we went a morning without hot water. We stayed four nights and room wasn't made up for our last two days. Paper thin walls combined with everyone waking up early to check out at 10:00 am meant we were woken up by packing at about 8:00 am every day. We like to sleep in on holidays, especially in a party town like Dubrovnik, so the unwelcome human alarm clocks were very aggravating.

A Gem Right in the Middle of Old Town Dubrovnik!

Posted Jul 15, 2016
Pros: Location, cleanliness and rooms are big
Cons: bathroom floor always wet (the way it's built, impossible to keep water inside the shower stall) so something to make the floor dry would be nice.
Location: It's right in the middle of everything that happens in Old Town Dubrovnik.
The apartments were a bit tricky to locate, so definitely call the owner Stjepo in advance so he can meet you outside the Old Town & take you in. We did not, so after half hour looking for the place, we had to wait for another 20 min for Stjepo. But that was the only 'minus' of our entire stay. The owner was friendly and helpful. We only saw him once at check-in but he's only a phone call away with any questions or issues. The location can't be any better. We were only a few steps from the main squares. The apartment has fully equipped kitchen so this is a nice option for family. Bathroom is small (but I guess that's standard). I can't recommend enough this property. We definitely stay here again next time we're in Dubrovnik

Nice apartment on old town

Posted Jun 14, 2016
Nice apartment, clean and has kitchenette. The owner was nice and helpful. It can be a bit noisy, depending on neighbors. Close to main square, restaurants and ATM.

Small but well located and comfortable apartment

Posted May 10, 2016
Pros: Super friendly host, apartment was clean and comfortable, great location, and good value.
Cons: The apartment has very little natural light and I don't think there's anything to done about this. Fridge was also quite noisy - but I like quiet
Location: Brilliant location, hidden away but literally a couple of minutes from a wide range of wonderful restaurants and all the main tourist sites
The apartment I stayed in was a small, ground floor apartment in the Old City. The apartment is basic, but spotlessly clean and well maintained and was good value for a weekend. The bed was comfortable, the shower worked well, and there were warm blankets - needed in a stone cottage even in May. My host could not have been more helpful; providing a map, offering me ideas of places to visit and generally making me feel very welcome. The apartment was quiet, even on Friday and Saturday night, and I loved hearing the singing from the music school next door. The church bells are very loud on Sunday morning.

Excellent, relaxing stay

Posted Apr 18, 2016 on Hotels
Stjepo is an excellent host. He brought us from the Pile Gate right to our apartment - meaning there was never a problem locating the apartment. The apartment itself is great. It does everything you need it to do, and everything works great. The air conditioning, too, is excellent. The beds are comfortable, and the shower is always hot and flows not too slowly, either. Overall, we can thoroughly recommend staying here - and certainly plan to return here in the future at some time.
