“great value, great views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We stayed here 2 nights during our exploration of Dubrovnik. The rooms are nice with a great balcony view, parking is available, great value for the location. Its located in the best part of the city (to stay), as it is just tucked away from the busy areas. Its very peaceful, but be prepared to walk stairs though...the whole city is on a hill. Cool park area right below the inn, great ocean side walking path and restaurants. We had a car, but you could easily walk to the bus stop and ride to old town or the harbor.

This was my favorite place we stayed in Croatia! The apt was very modern, nice, and clean! I loved the balcony! Such a great view!! Our apt was on the highest level. As the villa is on a hill there are lots of steps, but we didn't have any problem (young and healthy). Could be an issue for others. Had welcome drinks upon our arrival. The lady that takes care of things (maybe the owner) also gave us a map of the area and explained where things were (bus, restaurants, etc). Bus number #6 was just a few minutes away and goes to the old city. This gave us a break from driving which was nice. Restaurants in the area were good. Grocery store nearby. And the "beach" below the apt was actually really nice. Most beaches are rock (and often not the smoth kind). About 10 feet into the water it turned into sand. Going from the bottom of the hill (around restaurants) to the apt included a lot of steps (a lot), so if you can't climb steps then the whole area might not be a good choice for you. But it was good exercise! Would stay there again without hesitation!

Room Tip: It's a little more expensive for a room with a balcony with a sea view but TOTALLY worth it!

Villa Boro is fantastic, on so many levels. It is very comfortable, quiet, good air conditioning, located in Lapad, which is just outside the city, very clean and with lovely owners who are there if you need assistance but leave you alone to get on with your holiday. We slept like logs in our very comfortable bed. It is fantastic value for money and I have stayed in really nice 4* and 5* hotels over year and honestly would rate this higher, for the sheer great value it offers. We had requested an apartment with a sea view and a balcony and we got both. I loved Villa Boro, it was a highlight in itself of my trip to Dubrovnik and I was crying leaving both the apartment and this lovely endearing city, I did not want to go home!

Excellent in every respect. Our top floor apartment was clean, modern, spacious and really good value for money all hosted by a really friendly owner who could not have been more helpful. We enjoyed the location which was convenient for some fabulous restaurants, cafes, bars and the beach. Walk along the coastal path and you discover some amazing views. We loved our first visit to Croatia and would return to this apartment again without hesitation.

AMAZING room with the yellow curtains from pictures. So spacious, extremely clean, beautiful, big balcony, fantastic views. We stayed for four nights and felt sad to leave! The kitchen was brilliant, we ate breakfast, lunch and dinner in our 'home'! It is amazing value for money and we can't recommend it enough. The owners were so friendly and really helpful. A bottle of champagne and strawberries on arrival as we were celebrating! We arrived late and they arranged dinner for us at a near by restuarant and a lift there and back - so lovely! Very close to the bus stop - less than 10 minute bus to the old town and taxis are cheap if you come back at night. Ignore the complaints of the walk/steps to the bus - it's not bad at all! We loved Villa Boro!!!!

Room Tip: The apartment with the yellow curtains!

We stayed here for one night and really didn't know what to expect. It took a while to find as our sat nav kept taking us to the back of the property which is just not accessible for cars! The locals were great and as most speak English we were given usable directions. We had a lovely clean room with a great view out to sea. Easy access to the bus into the old town. Yes there are steps but all of this area is hilly as is the old town so don't let that put you off. The owner is lovely and even brought us coffee and biscuits in the morning. We were going to stay on our final night but decided on somewhere else which we regretted immediately. You just can't beat the friendly personal service you get in private accommodation.

Room Tip: We had a room with sea view, there are larger apartments which would give you more space but you wou...
