Really good location in the old town. Staff were nice and didn't hassle you with recommendations or asking what you wanted to do/where you wanted to go. Good place to explore from but no place to hang out.


This is more of a b


Lovely place located at right next to the western city wall in the old town. Clean and relatively comfortable. Very quiet and peaceful Very hot during summer and 1 small fan did nothing to cool it down. Awkward shower position not good for tall people.


Positive point : Anna and her husband were great hosts. Very friendly. Negative point : the kitchen was only composed of a fridge.

kitchenette = fridge + electric plate. we do not have possibility for 'big' cooking ;(. our friendly staff, cleanless, super location and price are our advantages:)


Really good position within the old walls and near the famous Buza Bar.


It was a nice stay in Old Town Dubrovnik, one of the rooms of someones apartment. It is located right in Old Town, a few stairs to walk up but if you can carry a suitcase/bag its fine! And just need to remember your way there and back, its a little bit of a maze. Staff are lovely, Wifi worked great. Very Old Town feel about it, not new but cosy and nice.

This place is a small house with 2 rooms and a bathroom and fridge to share so the facilities aren't great. It wasn't particularly clean (in the bathroom as well as the bed) and I couldn't stand up straight in the shower and I am not very tall.

sharing facilities rooms are in 'small house' (everything is small in old town, its built before 400 years when averadge people high was 165cm). anyway, im 185 and can stand in shower on my foot. there is bathroom with tub, too). its true that rooms out of old town are biger and better, in old town we decoreated maximum we could, in atmosphere of our old, thats very special and we are proud to give you enjoy peace of that:) . cleanless is our better part; NOT true house was 'particulary clean'!


Had a great stay.

..about stairs: our street KOVAČKA is one of the shortest in old town, ca.25 stairs to house. other streets have much much more (few hundreds..)
