“Charming guest house with sweet owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We LOVED our short stay at Rooms Raic. Marina, the owner, is one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met. She seems genuinely happy to have you as her guest and goes out of her way to make sure you have a great stay. She is helpful, accommodating, and warm. We received a delicious welcome drink of homemade Croatian liquor as well as an adorable sendoff gift of chocolate vanilla wafers. There are maps, tour books, and free water and candy for guests. The rooms are perfect and the view from the balcony are superb. The area is quiet and peaceful. I could go on...

Although the guest house is high up on the hill in Ploce, the walk home is safe and not terrible at all. We traveled as two young women and encountered no problems returning home. The view is easily worth the large amount of stairs to climb.

Room Tip: Choose one of the rooms with direct access to the lovely balcony.

The house is up on the hill above Dubrovnik and about a 10 minute walk away from the old town or the cable car station (allow longer for the uphill return trip). The house is newly built and has been built to a high standard. Our room had a good size ensuite bathroom, direct access to the balcony and access to a fully equipped shared kitchen (including a large fridge, dishwasher and ice cube dispenser). The house also has free wifi.

The balcony was the perfect spot from which to take photos of the old town and the view was absolutely lovely. This was one of the nicest places we stayed in during a two week trip through the Balkans (stayed in ten different places) and I would thoroughly recommend it unless the hilltop location is an issue. The walk down to the old town took around 10 minutes and the return trip around 15 to 20 minutes.

When returning to Dubrovnik after a three day trip to Montenegro we stayed in an apartment in the old town. With hindsight we would have rather returned to Rooms Raic due to the much higher standard of the room and the shared facilities and the lower price.

The owner spent thirty years living in Germany and speaks German and English.

Room Tip: Two of the rooms have direct access to the balcony from which you can enjoy a great view over Dubrov...

The location was quiet and great for sleeping. It is a 10 minute walk from the Old Town but up a steep hill. However, the views over Dubrovnik are well worth the effort. It is beautiful. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable. The host was very helpful without being intrusive. I would definetely recommend it to friends.

The view from the balcony is amazing! It really feels like you're in your own house when staying here. The hotel was quiet, clean and comfortable and the host was very helpful.

It is a 10 minute walk into the old town - we did not walk back up there as it is very high on the hill but a cab costs less than 5 euro.
