This has been one of my best accomodation choices. The apartment is just next to the main square, a few steps away from the Stradun but in a quiet corner, which means, you are away from the noise.
Dive the owner is extremely kind and always ready to give you tips about places to visit and restaurants, she is definitly a food expert.
The apartment is a small studio with kitchen, bathroom with shower, and a terrace where to enjoy local wine and smoke if you are used to. There is free wifì and actually it works really good.
I paid 50€ per day in october, I guess in summer it will be more expensive.
As you cannot access the old town with taxi nor bus give Dive a call when you are arriving and she'll meet you at one of the cities gate to show you the way home.
The location and definitly the kind Dive.
It was a very nice accommodation. Owner very friendly. We felt very welcome. Location next to bus stop from the main bus terminal. Walking distance to the harbour and to the Old City. There was a supermarket nearby. Owner has got a lovely dog! Room was very clean.
Like almost all accommodations in the old town, this is also private run A very friendly mother/daughter team will make you feel home at this excellently located place. Rooms are clean, maybe not too large. When booking, please ask if using the kitchen and air conditioning is included in your fare (which it mostly is). A big plus goes to location, very close to Ploce Gate in the old town. Ferries to Lokrum depart almost next door and many good restaurants are just a minute away. Even Banje Beach is within a good walking distance.
Your hosts are a very valuable source, indeed they were better than the tourist information. They have also many booklets and material available. Big Kudos to mother and daughter Spikula.
Only one warning: If you are very sensitive to noise, just keep in mind that this place is located very close to the clocktower where two bronze soldiers strike the bell all night long.
Handily located close to the bus station and supermarket and an easy short bus ride to Pile Gate, Dubrovnik. Small simple comfortable rooms and good hot shower. I appreciated the shared kitchen. I can recommend the hot chicken and roast potatoes and tasty pastries from the Konzum supermarket which I enjoyed on the balcony whilst absorbing the scenic view over Gruz harbour. I found Gruz to be an interesting place to stay and enjoyed strolling along the waterfront watching the colourful boats. All in all a pleasant stay.
Now that's what I call a room with a view! Top quality accommodation with service to match. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The balcony was a great place to sit and relax and enjoy a drink and a meal which can easily be prepared in the modern and well equiped spotless kitchen. Staying here helped make my trip to Dubrovnik very memorable. Thank you Anka.
To me this hotel was almost a resort. Set in most beautiful surrounds on Babin Kok Peninsula you could enjoy a swim or just bathe in the sun on the beach of pebbles. Drinks and light refreshmens available. Noticed a safety net not too far out in the water.
Wi fi and an internet room were avilable but not free. There was a dining room and an a la carte restaurant ....really a very lovely area and music every night, There was a little shop as well.
Our room was spacious and there was a bath. Bed was comfortable. There was a safe in the room.
Staff were pleasant and helpful.
There were great views of the Adriatic Sea.
And there was a lift. It was clear so you could see the surrounds as you travelled down the lift slope (literally) to the first floor. Access to the beach was at this level.
The hotel was a distance from the old town but after our visit I decided this time I preferred being somewhere away from town.
When the cruise ships come in there is no room at all in the old town. And the setting up of markets in the early hours is , I was told, very noisy.
I do not know what other hotels are like...this was our first time in the region.
On our return to Dubrovnik after a tour of Montenegro we called Anka Markunovic and she came to meet us and took us to this nice apartment in the heart of the old city. This was a perfect place for someone who wants to feel how is it to be in the old town, we got double room with shower for about 60 euro. Outside this place a minute walk you have cafes, bars & restaurants.
We were lucky to get such place on the day, in general it is better to book those places in advance as it is very popular and usually fully booked during the high season.
Close to everything and cozy.
Although the Apartment Frape has been renovated to a high standard there were a few issues. On various websites this apartment is advertised as having an iron, a toaster, a bathrobe, shampoo/conditioner but none of these were present. The satellite TV didn't work and the owner said he would fix it, but didn't.
The location is also described as quiet but unless you can sleep through anything it is far from quiet. There is a restaurant next door and several more in the street above and the noise from these areas continues into the small hours. We were woken every morning at about 6am as all these establishments bounced their wheely bins down to the Stradun to be collected.
The downstairs area was very hot and would have benefited from air condition there as well. And if the satellite TV had worked that would have been better placed upstairs in the bedroom with the existing air con and the beds to lie on which provided more room than the very small sofa that was downstairs. Finally, there was no contact number in the apartment for the owner should any problems arise. We had a couple which we had to deal with on our own.
That apart we had a lovely time.
The place was clean and the family very helpful. Be prepared that there still is little to no parking and you need to be an expert map reader to know how to turn at the Biker bar and meander up the winding narrow street to get to the parking area. Then find the apartment number is not easy. The cost was $60 a nite-as compared to $120-200 for a hotel. Other apartments can also get more pricey, but shop around.
Good clean kitchen and bathroom. Rather tight space with 200 SF overall. Find a place to park and leave the vehicle their until you leave-walk to steps.
We stayed at Marco Polo hostel for 6 nights and we were very pleased with this accommodation. It is at a reasonable price and it is close to the Old Town.
Walking to the Old Town meant actually to climb quite a lot of stairs.
Rooms are clean and the landlady and her daughters were very nice. We recommend this accommodation.
It is hard to get a cheap hotelroom in Dubrovnik. Most of the hotels charge you at least 200 USD a night for a doubleroom. Some of the 3 star hotels even charge 300 USD a night.
It's a tourist information stall in the walking street towards the beach in Babin Kuk. But don't expect much help here. They cannot do anything for backpackers who want to bargain. July is also the peak season, so you will probably have problems if the hotel is not booked in advance.
There were no rooms available when I came to Dubrovnik. It was a peak ++ weekend. But I was lucky. An old woman was sitting outside the tourist stall and offered a room in her house. It was a 5 minutes walk up the steep hill in Babin Kuk. A three floor house, where one floor was ready for tourists. I got a big bedroom, a bathroom and shared the kitchen with another couple. The old woman charged 30 USD a night.
This is a beautiful, newly renovated apartment in an ideal location - just a few steps from Pile gate (outside old town, which makes it quitere and convenient), no steps to climb. We were 4 - with two children - and there are large separate bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, big living room with kitchen, everythingg fully equipped and beautifully arranged.
The owner was helpful and nice. We paid 110 Euro per night and we found the price reasonable. We had a bad experience with an apartment inside the old town that we found via internet. This one we found by entering a tourist agency near the gate (Atlas) and we were very happy with the result.
On 31st of July 2008 we had a 3-night reservation in for a 2-bedroom apt. in
Villa Mirta in Old Town Dubrovnik, Fericeva St. No. 7. We wish to warn other tourists heading there..
We found the place via Internet. When we arrived in the evening with our two children and the luggage, the apartment looked ok. The first surprise was when we opened the window: there is an outdoor movie in the yard right outside our windows- so close you can touch the people sitting there. We had to keep the windows closed till 23:15 and could not go to bed before that. Later, the double bed in the large room – lacking air condition – turned out to be in very bad state too soft and shapeless, all "hills and valleys" and we had a sleepless night trying to find the right posture. In the morning at 9:00 sharp we told the owner (his name is Dubravko) that we were leaving – we wanted to pay that night and find a place where we could sleep. Here came the real shock although we said this very politely the guy attacked us with verbal brutality, saying we were the first ones who ever complained about his apartment, that we booked it for 3 nights so we had to pay them fully, that we could not have a better bed at home. We sustained that we were not going to spend more sleepless nights there and we wanted to pay one night only. Here he tried to threaten us in a very border-line way, hinting that he could find ways to have us stopped and annoyed in the airport when we fly back. At this point the kids were quite terrified and we ended up paying him an extra night – 200 Euro for two nights plus 10% tax.
We went to the ATLAS tourist agency near PILE gate and they immediately found us a beautiful house, much nicer and modern with an amiable owner (we can give you the name). We heard from fellow tourists that this kind of experience – tourism people turning against you aggressively the minute something goes wrong - is not uncommon in Croatia and it is probably better to find an apartment on place where you can see it (there are so many that you will certainly find a good one even in the peak period) and not risk this sort of scenes when relying on the internet.
I travel a lot, and it happened to me 3-4 times over many years that I was not satisfied in a hotel and left even though I booked for longer; I was never asked to pay extra nights and I was never blackmailed and threatened like here.
if you have a car I suggest you to stay cavtat,zaton or mali zaton.more quite clean and you can rent a flat in s house with shower ,kitchen,tv 2 rooms with balcony for 50€ in high season.check my tips
clean and nice family house.it has a garden for car park also you can swim by the sea.
We have stayed several times at this spectacular apartment in Old Town Dubrovnik - within the historical walls.
The apartment holds lot of historical value as the building it sits on was once a Monestary in history and is one of the few buildings that survived the war. Apartment Lobrovic is perched in the most perfect location, with a teraace facing the Adriatic sea where we enjoyed most of our meals ... absorbing the spine-tingling views!
The apartment features a terrace, 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, a kichen, a living room and was fully equiped to make our stay feel at home! All windows of the apartment offer magnificent views of the old town, the sea and the islands!
We would highly recommend this to anyone wanting a special place to stay in Dubrovnik that makes you feel at home.
We think this is probably one of the only Apartments in Old Town Dubrovnik available for renting with such a fantastic location with vistas beyond your imagination.
The ambience in the Apartment is very warm, making you feel at home and all the facilities are modern ....
The apartment was spacious, clean and quiet and steps away to the charming Bar Buza--the hole in the wall that overlooks the Adriatic.
