“What more could you want.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Wow. What a welcome to Dubrovnik. We simply pulled up outside the apartment on the off chance there would be a vacancy and they squeezed us in. The apartment was so clean it put my own house to shame. I felt we could ask for anything. Our big landy couldn't fit in the garage so we unloaded and parked it empty elsewhere and they looked after all our belongings for us. Just very helpful and friendly. Thought I was getting a weak wi-fi but they reset and sorted it all out. Lots of useful information to leaf through in the apartment. And thank you very much for the morning treats!

We spent a week in Dubrovnik and enjoyed our apartment as an excellent retreat from the city (5 minute walk) with every convenience we could ask for. We chose it because of views, location and parking and found it met our highest expectations. Since we were driving from Split, Kristo met us outside town and escorted us to the apartment to avoid the confusion of a new city. The apartment was stocked with everything we needed, including beer, wine, candy, soft drinks, etc. Every morning we found fresh pastry on the table of our large covered patio. We also had a huge uncovered patio overlooking the city. When we left Kristo drove us to the airport for free. We felt lucky to have such friendly, helpful hosts as Kristo and Andela.

We spent one week in the Apartments Laptalo, having read all the great reviews on Tripadvisor. The location, apartment and hosts, Kristo and Andela, are all excellent. The large terrace with hammock etc. overlooks the Old Town and is very relaxing. The apartment is only two flights of steps down to the Old Town or a gently sloping walk back up the road. The location is perfect for visiting Old Town restaurants in the evening. The terrace overlooking the town and sea is such a haven to return to after the busy tourist areas. However, its all the little 'extras' provided by Kristo and Andela that make this the place to stay. We were picked up at the airport, we had fresh produce left for us every morning for breakfast from the local bakery, the fridge had jam, butter, wine etc. on arrival and tea, coffee, and biscuits. Andela provides clean sheets and towels and looks after everything while you enjoy your holiday. Kristo also gave us a 2 hour tour of Dubrovnik and outlying areas in his car. Their attention to detail is what makes these apartments special and we would not hesitate to recommend this accommodation. We hope to return!

Room Tip: Both apartments are equally good.

We first choose this apartment among the available mainly for it’s location. We don’t easily trust on internet opinions. But once we saw the apartment, we realized everything was just as good as previous visitors described! It was all beyond expectation!

The apartment has got a huge patio with a view on the old-town and the sea, it’s great place for a peaceful breakfast, lunch, appero, dinner or just admire the mid-night fresh air! Inside, the apartment is spacious enough, absolutely clean, there’s everything you need to cook, bathroom is perfect. Everything in the apartment seems to be new and unused!

The apartment is perfectly located, out of the noisy old town but close to it, and few minutes’ walk from the only sand beach.

Beside the apartment it-self, it’s the couple of owners who makes your stay that good! Kristo came to pick-up us at the airport (so did he for the return). His wife Angela brought a patisserie/croissant every morning for the breakfast (we used to wake-up at 6’30 a.m!!!) We booked for a 6days stay and Angela kept the apartment clean during the 6days! Both of them were always available but never intrusive! They surprised us with many other nice things, but we prefer to let them the pleasure to surprise their guests. We really felt at home, away from home!

So if the apartment is available for your dates, go for it with a peaceful mind!

After going through the horror of realising we had booked our Dubrovnik accommodation for the month after we would actually be there, the hunt was on to find decent and reasonably priced accommodation a day before we arrived!

We came across Apartments Laptalo on Tripadvisor and we emailed Kristo immediately to which he responded within the hour. After then speaking with Kristo we decided we were happy with the price, location and just the general information we received we confirmed our booking.

We let Kristo know what time we would be arriving and he offered to come pick is up from the airport at no cost. He was even thoughtful enough to send us a photo so we knew who to look for.

When we got to the airport, Kristo was there with a sign to pick us up. Along the way to his place he told us some history and we asked some questions about Dubrovnik.

When we arrived to the apartments, his wife Angela came down to meet us too. I have to say when we were shown our accommodation we were stoked! It was better than what we had read about and better than what was originally booked. It's a self contained apartment which is spotless and meticulously looked after. There was a fridge, stove and sink and it is stocked with some basic essentials.

Every morning Angela would leave a pastry for each of us on the terrace which was basically our breakfast, which was very thoughtful and yummy to boot!

The apartment is at the top of a set of stairs which lead to the Ploce gate to Old Town and is a two minute walk to the Cable Car. It is also about a five minute walk to a different entrance to the Old Town.

There is only one other apartment and the place is nice and quiet and you are advised against bringing back visitors.

I would have no problems recommending these apartments to anyone who is thinking of staying here.

We had our one week holiday in the end of July and everything was perfect, including the weather.
The aparment was fabolous and very clean. Quiet enviroment and with a fantastic sea wiew and location (about 200 meters to the old town and the old harbour).
Our host Kristo and he`s wife Angela were very nice; we felt us as relatives. Everything was perfect and they would help if you need any assistant at all. Every morning Angela had put fresh pastries on terrace table! Kristo picked us from the airport and leave back ( with sighseeing tour) without extra cost!
We recommend this apartment to everybody. See surely you next year ( if there is apartment then available...! )

As early as last year when I went I said in an earlier time, close to all attractions, in a quiet look of the owner of the couple-friendly. I felt like it was a family member. If I go again next year in Croatia, I would go to the same place. Highly recommended by all.

Room Tip: Both the room really quiet and functional, and clean...
