“An enchanting, wonderful city.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2010

We spent a few hours wandering through the labyrinths of the narrow streets, enjoying the atmosphere. We didn't expect to see the laundry hanging out to dry... just like in Venice. Charming... In some of the narrow streets there were restaurant tables laid out where you can sit and relax in a shade, have a meal or just a nice cup of coffe. And again the stairs, the steep steps leading to the main street called Stradun (or Placa) with its marble pavement and Venetian-style palaces.
There was a small market in the square that day with lots of everything: fruits and vegetables, dried figs, orange peels, some other snacks. The prices were listed both in Kuna and Euro.
A walk along the walls is a must-do as the views from the top are fabulous. On our visit (beginning of october) it was not crowded at all, and we were able to walk around without feeling rushed.
We had a nice seafood meal at a restaurant by the harbor, wasn't cheap but very good.
The Old Town is compact, but there is still plenty to explore: from history, monasteries, churches, fountains, beautiful architecture to small galleries selling their work from stalls. No matter how many times I walk back and forth the same streets I'll always find something I haven't seen like 10 minutes ago. Maybe it'is not just me but an endless charm of the city that makes you see things new?

“Stay w/ Hedera Estate in Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010

Hedera Estate Dubrovnik. Can be contated at www.hedera-estate.com.

Hedera Estate consists of charming apartments and houses inside the old city of Dubrovnik and just outside the gate, as well. The company is well run by charming owners, Vedran Miovic and his friend and partner, Stiepo. We spent 10 nights there---Sept. 15 thru 25, 2010 , with our two friends from England at House Hedera which perches over the Adriatic. just outside the west gate. We were well tended by these two 26-year-old owners who speak perfect English, offer wonderful advice, fix any problems (eg., w/ internet) and pick up their guests at the Dubrovnik Airport. They make a Croatia visit easy. Will even sail with you if you need help. Fun!!

“Croatia”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2010

Def not for those with young children, most apartments are up big hills, with lots of steps, not ideal for buggies. Scenery beautiful all over, and the old Town of Dubrovnik is def worth seeing. Not cheap at all anywhere though. The locals are not the most friendly people in the world, and restaurants all seem to have the same menu, with it taking up to two hours before you get your main courses. Dubrovnik airport was a pleasure tho, pity this was on the way home.

“What a beautiful town and sourrounding area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2010

Traveled to Dubrovnik, Croatia for a wedding and didn't know what to expect. Absolutely loved this beautiful area, the people are friendly and helpful, English is widely spoken and the price is right. We stayed about 10 miles outside Dubrovnik in the small town of Zaton. We were happy that we stayed outside of Dubrovnik because every day huge cruise ships stop for the day as well as many, many bus tours. We rented cars, it's very easy to get around, the main highway travels along the coast for million dollar views. Zaton was a great little town, we stayed at the Njiric Apartments run by a wonderful, friendly, helpful family who lives below the apartments. The apartments, were large and adequate with small kitchens, cold a/c and a grocery store right below. From the apartments it was a short walk to the sea shore and restaurants. If you go, definitely visit Cavtat a small town near Dubrovnik, great swimming beaches, lovely little town. Can't wait to go back one day.

“the place to stay in Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2010

Karmen Apartments can really be recommended. The owner is very friendly and helpful, the apartments a decorated in a way that makes you really feel at home, every question has been answered by the owner, his recommandations (restaurants, expositions, ...) were really good and the old city centre, where the apartments are, is oneof the most beautiful ones in Europe! We would definitely return!
