Villa Ivan is an ideal place to stay if you are wanting to see more of what Dubrovnik has to offer (apart from the old town). The accommodation was clean with great views from the private balcony. Ivan and Kate are really welcoming and friendly, Ivan picked us up from the airport and gave great detail of what to do... More

I have only positive things to say about our stay at Villa Ivan. We were picked up from the ferry port on arrival (and they dropped us off at the station at the end) and were provided detailed and comprehensive information about how to get around Dubrovnik from the location, also given excellent recommendations for things to do, including affordable...

We stayed here for 1 week in june. Highly recommend it if you are on a budget. Excellent value, great views of the city, very helpful ivan & kate. Only downside is 20 min walk to old town.however very close to bus stop and local shops to enjoy drinks on the balcony.

Myself and two friends stayed here in June for 2 nights. Ivan was such a friendly host and picked us up at the bus station free of charge. He gave us a good explanation of transport around Dubrovnik as well as main things to see and do in the city. On arrival he gave us maps of the city and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Ivan for 3 nights. Ivan was very friendly and helpful in explaining the transportation and shops around the neighbourhood. He even offered to bring our luggage down to meet us at the main bus station which was much appreciated. The room was well furnished and the view from the balcony overlooking the harbour... More

A little late in leaving this review - we actually stayed in June 2011. Ivan and his wife couldn't have been more welcoming and hospitable; whether it was providing us with airport transfers for a very cheap rate, or bringing us ice cream on a particularly hot day! The only reason we haven't given 5 stars is the location -... More

Put simply, we could not have been more pleased with our week long stay at Villa Ivan. Whilst other reviews have rightly complimented the views of the harbour from the balcony, value for money and ease of access to public transport, it is the kindness and helpfulness of Ivan and Kate that we will remember most. There was a genuine... More

My boyfriend and I just spent 5 amazing days in Dubrovnik and we believe a big part of it was staying at the Villa Ivan! We stayed in the front room and were blown away by our view! Ivan and Kate are both very nice, genuine hardworking people and made us feel at home from the start. They gave us... More

This place is the best hostel I've ever stayed in . Ivan and Kate really go out of there way to make your stay in this beautiful city really special. From the free juice on arrival to the freshly picked oranges cake homemade pancakes and the free lift from the bus station . Ivan's knowledge of the place is really... More
