“Great base to explore Old Town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

After considering multiple hotel options (incl. the Hilton and Bellevue), my family of 3 decided to stay in the Domino House for 3 nights and were very happy with our decision. Located centrally in Old Town Dubrovnik, we had easy access to all of the sites as well as lots of restaurant options. The house was modern yet homey and spacious with 2 beds, 2 baths, living room, kitchen etc laid out over 3 floors. The multi-floor layout resulted in a lot of stair climbing but we didn't mind. Around the corner were multiple cafes/restaurants -- noise from these establishments was never a problem. We did experience some rather loud noises in the early morning from what we assumed to be delivery carts but felt that it was a small price to pay for all of the other benefits. Great to be in town in the evening to be able to enjoy the live jazz/piano bars post-dinner. The house manager was very helpful and assisted with restaurant recommendations as well as booking a car service for the airport. WiFi was included and connection was good. Definitely recommend!

We stayed here twice in one week, either side of a visit to one of the Islands and we were very impressed and glad we booked to stay in the same place. The apartment was relatively easy to find and in a lovely quiet street not far from the Stradun. We had been given our access code prior to arrival so we were able to let ourselves in, and our envelope with room key was waiting for us in the reception area. The apartment was on the first floor, modern with a large shuttered window, a big bed, kitchen/diner (bring your own coffee), aircon, digital receiver and dvd player (selection of dvds downstairs - not sure if any were English, we didn't check) and a lovely bathroom with power rain shower. There was also a seating area just outside the room and a lounge and dining room downstairs in the reception area with a laptop for guests to use. The apartment also comes with wifi access and laundry facilities. The staff are so helpful (phoned ahead to our hotel on the island for check in times, and advised us on how to get the bus to the ferry) and flexible in that our welcome introduction was scheduled for the following day at a time more suitable for us and our key for the second part of our stay, was once again left in reception for us to collect at our leisure. The apartment is very close to restaurants and not far from a local shop. The apartment also has discount cards for breakfast at a Cafe on the Stradun which was a nice touch. We enjoyed our stay so much that we will be back and we will be staying here on our next visit.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at Calenga apartments in may. The location of the apartment is great. On a quite back street of old town. Away from the noise of the main street, but close to restaurants with out having to climb half way up the mountain. The apartment was clean and quite modern. It was nice to be able to make tea and toast in the morning and have a small fridge for wine or beer. There was a washer and dryer faun dry on the main floor I would definitely recommend it

Room Tip: We had a room on the second floor with a bath tub/shower. Small kitchen and table.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay here in February. We had a studio that was modern, clean and very comfortable. The apartments are well-located and close walking distance to shops, restaurants, cafes, grocery store, etc etc. I would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to stay in the old town. We stayed in the off-season, and the price was very good in comparison to the name brand hotels.

We stayed two nights in this beautiful apartment, as it was low season, the owner who came to meet us on the Saturday morning and who was very friendly and charming kindly let us stay until our flight departed later that evening without checking out early at no extra cost, giving us peace of mind and not having to worry about our suitcases. I have travelled to a lot of different places in Europe, but Dubrovnik has been one of my favourites, made very special by staying in this beautiful apartment, we simply did not want to leave, and cannot recommend this apartment or beautiful city enough. you will definitely not be disappointed if you stay here. I am looking forward to returning already!

You cannot miss Dubrovnik and the Celenga Apartments are perfect to experience this very unique city. We stayed in the penthouse apartment, which was lovely, well equipped and spacious. Travellers should know that you cannot reach the apartment by car, but it is a short, comfortable walk from the Pile Gate to the apartment. If you want to stay in the penthouse, you will have to climb stairs to the third floor, but it was worth every step!

Very helpful staff, good wifi, good heating, well equipped kitchen.

This apartment comes highly recommended and Dubrovnik is an amazing place to visit. Do not miss this wonderful experience!

Room Tip: If you are not too mobile, do not stay in the penthouse, but it is worth the effort!

Having stayed at the celenga apartments I would recommend to others staying in Dubrovnik.

Positives, good location, friendly staff, very clean, reasonably priced with good facilities.

Negatives, room very dark with little natural light, room not cleaned or serviced during my stay, other guests above a bit noisy on one of the nights.

Overall, good value for money, my room was dark but in fairness it was on the first floor overlooking a narrow alley I think the rooms would have got brighter the higher you went and if natural light is your thing then I would recommend paying a bit more for the penthouse suite.

Dear Peter40peter40,

Thank you indeed for your overall a very positive review. Wonderful to hear that you liked our location, friendly staff, cleanliness, facilities and all these for a reasonable price.

We are however very sorry to hear that you found the studio very dark. Just like you said, our Celenga Apartments are located in one of the narrow streets of Dubrovnik Old Town and face the building of the same hight so it limits a bit the natural light. And also you stayed with us in November and I suppose the wether wasn't that clear so it probably gave even a darker impression. But residing in the hart of Dubrovnik Old town is a unique experience and I do hope you enjoyed your stay with us.

We are delighted that you would recommend us to others staying in Dubrovnik.

Best regards,
