“Awesome!”
Reviewed July 1, 2011

We spent four nights with Jadranka, and hated to leave. She was the ultimate hostess who couldn't do enough for us. Her directions on how to find her were great, but you have to be willing to walk up and down a good number of steps to get to her apartments. But it is so worth it! We could not have been happier. The location is just outside Dubrovnik, and it took no time at all to walk to the old city inside the wall. We had a great little patio and could eat our meals just outside our door. The apartment was beautifully done and spacious. If we ever get back to Dubrovnik, we will stay with Jadranka!

Room Tip: I suspect every room is terrific!

Our first time in Dubrovnik/Croatia, visiting for my 50th birthday, we found this one on the internet then checked it out on Trip Advisor. 15 excellent reviews convinced us that we should be onto a winner. Jadranka, our host, was also the only one of several people I e-mailed who replied, and we maintained a friendly correspondence between booking right up to arriving. Apartment was very clean and spacious for two people, we didn't make much use of the kitchenette as we were eating out mostly, but OK for stuff for breakfast. If being really picky we could have made use of a kettle and toaster but that really is a small point as it had no impact on our enjoyment of the stay. Jadranka was always available for advice but never imposed on us, and we had some lovely chats with her, especially over a glass or two of wine from the bottle she gave me for my birthday! A nice touch. Nice terrace at front of apartment to relax on if necessary, which is shared with adjoining apartment. By the time we left we felt that the best compliment we could pay Jadranka and Milan was that we felt like we had stayed with friends.
There are a lot of stone steps on the way up to the Benussi home from bus stops etc. which will keep you fit, but be aware if you have mobility issues. Can't be helped though.

Restaurant recommendations: Lady Pi-Pi just inside the city wall on the north side, and Spaghetteria Toni down one of the alleyways behind Stradun. Avoid Restaurant Domino, over-priced rubbish and seems to think it is better than it is.

Take a boat over to Lokrum Island for a calm time away from the bustle of the old town, also worth a boat ride along the coast to Cavtat, can be done cheaper on the bus, but nice to be out on the water as an alternative. If walking the city walls in the summer, go up at 8.00 when they open to avoid the crowds later, also it will be slightly cooler than the heat of the later day.

Loved Dubrovnik and would return to Apartments Benussi tomorrow if we could.

Room Tip: Apartment 1 was a decent size for two

my wife and just completed a five night stay in one of Benussi's Apartments. the accommodations were perfect for our needs. Jadranka was very helpful with suggestions of where to go, where to eat, and put us in touch with a great guide for a walking tour of old town. he only draw back was getting our luggage up the place from the Hilton where our taxi driver dropped us off. we would stay there again in a heartbeat and just pack lightly.

Just spent 6 fabulous days at Benussi apartment. The location couldn't be better; the only drawback is the stairs leading up to the house (especially if you are lugging luggages at night after a long flight). Being so close to the Hilton Hotel offers the advantage of ease of pickup for day trips to Mostar and Montenegro and others offered by travel agencies. The bathroom is newly renovated and is very nice. The room has a nice view of the sea which is quite refreshing in the mornings. As it was during the off season, there were no other guests in the apartments which made for quiet relaxing evenings after long day of sightseeing. I would definitely return here again in the future.

We just returned from 5 days in Croatia. We were based in Dubrovnik and enjoyed staying at the Benussi Apartments. I arranged for the apartment with 3 beds, a kitchen, and bath. It was clean,modern, fresh and extremely comfortable. The apartment is located just outside of the old city Pile gate, right behind the Hilton Hotel. Really-just outside, only about a 5 minute easy walk. The apartment is located in a quiet neighborhood and outside the bustle and loudness and crowds of the old city. There are stairs but there are stairs everywhere and it is a doable walk.

Jadranka was a marvelous hostess who kept us up to date before and during our booking. She met us with a smile, helped with luggage, showed us how to work the tv, air conditioner etc. She recommended fabulous local restaurants, what fruit was in seasons, where to shop and what beaches to visit. She was informative and helpful. She arranged taxis to and from the airport and made sure our visit was comfortable and enjoyable. We so enjoyed chatting with her and learning more about her beautiful country. It was a delight to stay there.

I had never been to the Balkans before - but I will certainly be going again. It has an incredibly complex history - and present - and a fantastic atmosphere. There is a huge amount to see and do. It is fascinating and incredibly beautiful: harsh limestone mountains and islands covered in trees.
Before arriving, one of my daughters insisted on being able to lie in the sun every day. And she managed 12 out of 14. The other two we drove to the nearby countries of Montenegro and Bosnia. I wanted shade. And managed 14 out of 14.
Beaches near Dubrovnik are generally not sandy and water shoes would have been good. We didn't have any and should have bought some. But...would you use them again? The water, however, is really clean and clear.
If you forget to pack something, don't worry. Croatia is not the back of beyond.
We travelled in high season, when the centre of Dubrovnik can get very crowded with hour-trippers from cruise ships. Staying in the heart of the city might be trying. But staying just outside, is perfect.
The Benussi apartments are a five minute walk from from the old town centre, and Jadranka Benussi is as good a hostess as you could want. She is attentive - but not intrusive. And forget the Italian name - she's a Croat through and through!

Driving in Croatia is fine - though book car hire in advance if you can. Parking in Dubrovnik, however, is very difficult. Seek advice from Jadranka!
Although the very centre of the old town is flat - and very beautiful - Dubrovnik as a whole needs an ability of climb stairs. To start with, this overweight, unfit Brit felt like he was on a compulsory step aerobics course.

But overall, I couldn't recommend Benussi, Dubrovnik, Croatia and the Balkans highly enough.
