“Perfect base for a short break”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

My husband and I spent three nights here - two in Room Lukre and one in the apartment next door. Everything about our stay was perfect from start to finish and I wouldn't hesitate to go back!

Livio and Marilyn really have thought of everything when it comes to what travellers need, from bottle openers to Croatian phrasebooks. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast on the balcony of the apartment, which would be ideal for two couples travelling together.

The accommodation is excellent value for money, has great views and is ideally situated about a five-minute walk from the Pile Gate (pronounced Pee-lay for those not in the know!) We only saw Livio during our stay but he was great - he picked us up from the airport and dropped us off on the way home, which was really handy. He also knows Dubrovnik like the back of his hand so if you need any help or advice, Livio's your man!

Fingers crossed we'll get to go back and experience Dubrovnik once again - perhaps with some friends in tow to make the most of the apartment :)

From our greeting by Livio at Dubrovnik Airport to our drop off by him 4 days later everything went like clockwork. My wife and I stayed in "the room" which satisfied us because we only returned to sleep there, preferring to savour dining in the city and travelling around the Islands and Montenegro. Livio was the perfect host, and he really made our stay so memorable with his advice. On the day we departed he showed us "the apartment" which seemed ideal for small family groups, particularly if they wished to self-cater. He also recommended two restaurants which, in a city with some lapses in culinary expertise, were very good and reasonably priced. The accommodation is on the outer edge of the city walls so is far more convenient than the big hotels, many of which are an awkward bus ride away. This accommodation deserves its high rating by trip advisor reviewers.

We have just got back from our second stay at the apartment, we stayed for the first time 3 years ago.

This time we went with my mother in law, brother in law, neice, nephew and 9 month old daughter on our first family holiday. We could not have picked a more perfect place.

The apartment and room is well equipped with a lovely balcony in the apartment. It is in an excellent location, not far from the old town and about 5 mins walk from a small pebbly beach.

The owners Marily and Livio are amazing, they make you feel very welcome and give you great information on the surrounding areas and tips on restaurants, Dubrovnik's history etc. Unfortunately we didn't get to take one of Livio's great trips this time around as we had too many people but I hope to take one when we visit again!

Dubrovnik itself is a wonderful place. We were welcomed as a family with a young baby, we ate at some lovely restaurants and also visited the lovely island of Lockrum twice which was amazing.

I will definately visit again and would only ever consider Apartment Lukre - it is fantastic value for money.

The room/apartment are simply in a SUPERB LOCATION and both offer OUTSTANDING VALUE for money.
Livio is one of the rare few Croatians in the hospitality industry who truly appreciate the expectations of western holiday makers. His personable approach, genuine hospitality, command of the English language and professionalism are second to none - including some big name hotels in the area.
I could not recommend his accommodation/services higher, which is why my own family and friends have also stayed there.

We had a lovely three -night stay in Apartment Lukre. Because of the lack of a working cell phone, Livio literally waited for us in the apartment until we arrived (thank you!). He then made sure we understood how everything functioned in the apartment and made recommendations for things to do and places to eat. The apartment itself was fabulous for a family of four. Our boys had plenty of room to stretch out, and we had the privacy of a room separated from the other room by the kitchen. The apartment is situated just a stone's throw away from the pedestrian Old Town and right above a municipal parking lot---perfect! Oh, and there is a gorgeous patio. What's not to like?

My husband and I stayed here on the first part of our honeymoon and it was great! From the initial meeting at the airport Livo was friendly and helpful. He gave us Dubrovnik in a nutshell on the way into town. He also was very helpful suggesting places to eat and even helped us plan a last minute trip to Montenegro. The room itself was very nice. It was cozy and clean. The location cannot be beat! I would say that its even less than a five minute walk to the Old Town. There is a great little park up the street that my husband and I brought a bottle of wine to and watched the sunset over the water. While it does seem pretty obvious from the other reviews as well, this is not a bed and breakfast it really is just a room. That being said, I would defininetly recommend Roome Lukre!

We stayed at Room Lukre for 4 days in total and could not fault it. Open the shutters and we looked over the Old Town which was 5 minute walk away.
Livio our host was more than helpful and had great knowledge of the history of Dubrovnik of which he is very proud. The room was spotlessly clean airy and had everything we needed, and if anything else was needed Livio was only too pleased to get it for us. Even our washing was done for us, thanks to Marilyn his wife Higly recommend Room Lukre. Livio also offers personalised tours which we did loved them.
