Don't believe any of the negative reviews! We have just spent a week here and we so happy with it we would definitely stay here again. Why? To start with it's immaculately clean and very well-maintained. We were travelling as a couple but booked a 2 bedroom apartment (201) with a door from the second bedroom that opens out onto a huge balcony for extra space. There were sun loungers on which to lie and a great view to look out onto whilst eating breakfast outside. The apartment has everything you need such as fridge, coffee percolator, cutlery, crockery, knives, chopping boards, sandwich toaster, clothes drying rack, clothes pegs. There is a good shower and a bidet. The windows are double-glazed with excellent shutters as well so you can vary the amount of light let in. The only downside is that the air conditioning is centrally controlled which means you cannot operate it but having said that we found it came on when needed and we had no complaints at all. There is also a snack/ drink machine in the building handy for when you need some chocolate, water or a beer!
In terms of location, we think this hotel is best if you're not old/infirmed as it's a very quick (but very steep) 1 minute walk down to the bus stop that takes you into the old town ( journey time 15 minutes)and only costs 12 kuna (around £1.20) if you buy the ticket from hotel reception. Tickets can be used as many times as you like within a 1 hour period.
We enjoy walking and found we could also walk to beaches in Babin Kuk (Copacabana) or Lapad fairly easily as long as you don't mind the uphill bits! You can also catch buses to these places if you prefer. There's a supermarket around 5-10 minutes walk away. We loved the fact that it was quieter than the old town at night which means you can get a good night's sleep. And the staff are friendly and will clean your apartment as little or as often (daily if requested)as you like and arrange airport transfers (for a fee) if needed.
All in all, a great place to stay and we highly recommend it to couples or families with kids.
