In June 2012 I stayed in both the Apartment Dubrovnik-Center and the Lavanda apartment (the first one was only available for 4 nights, then I moved. The owners Stijepo and Ivana were so quick to answer emails and could not have been more helpful. Then Stijepo lugged all my stuff (and I have a LOT) from the city gate to the first apartment and again to the Lavanda. In the heat... poor guy. The Dubrovnik-Center apartment has the benefit of being in the old town, and it is VERY close to the Buza Bars #1 & #2. It is a tiny but comfy place on a really sweet street full of local residents. I found it very quiet at night but it is a bit of an uphill trek with a lot of stairs - which means it is also out of sight for many of the gazillion tourists on the flat part of Dubrovnik.
Stijepo had told me the Lavanda apartment was nicer and he is absolutely right. For one thing his mom (or Ivana's?) is there onsite and maybe she keeps the silverware more organized. There is more comfort (the bed at Lavanda is against the wall so you can read in it - at the other one, it is not so you can't) and a terrace with wonderful views of Dubrovnik's Old Town. I can't imagine why anyone would want to rent an expensive hotel room at the Excelsior which is a few steps away when you can rent a little apartment from these folks. Thanks Stijepo and Ivana for a wonderful stay!
