“Excellent”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Stayed in Villa Amfora 3 nights with my girlfriend. The location was good, close to the harbour and with the busstopp outside the door. 10 min ride to the old town with bus, and 20-25 walking. The rooms were nice and clean.

Kristian , the owner gave us excellent service and was very helpful with everything!! When we came there, they had just opened up, but the bar &restaurant was lovely. The second day, they hadd a opening party. The drinks in the bar was free, and we had a great party there with Kristian and the bar staff :)

We will strongly recommend Villa Amfora to our friends and family!! ( Kristians father drove us the the busstion when he saw us on the street looking for a taxi!!!)

We visited Villa Amfora twice for three days in July and three days in August. Both times we were greeted by the friendly owner , Kristian Korda who was unbelieveably helpful, kind and attentive. A real plus is that he speaks at least 3 languages (Croatian, German and English) and for us- his communication in English was excellent. When we arrived in July with our bicycles, we discovered that a part on my friend's bike had been damaged in the flight. He contacted many people and even drove my friend to look at the bikes available in Dubrovnik. I cannot think of anywhere in the world where you would be treated so well. Kristian treated us like family and old friends.

The staff was also friendly, attentive and helpful. Not only are the staff great but the food is incredible- a real treat to your palate. Kristian takes real pride in the fresh food and there is the option of sitting on the terrace outside, the dining room inside, the bar, or tables at the side of the street.

The accommodation is reasonably priced and pristine with ancient artifacts, great art. and a marble stair case. It is located close to ferries, boats, and the bus is right outside the door. This makes it easy to get to old town, or to neighbouring islands for the day.

Overall, this was the best Villa in Dubrovnik and I would highly recommend a visit.

Christian, owner and manager of Amfora Villa was an instrumental part of our phenomenal vacation in Croatia. He helped us get oriented to the city and the country. He has recently opened a first class restaurant in his villa. His expertise not only in the culinary arts but as a wine sommelier ensured us our best meal during our 3 week vacation in Croatia. Although travelling in a foreign country where we did not know the language, we felt very much at home and catered to.

Really lovely B&B. Nice, clean room with a fridge & tv. Rooms cleaned every day. Great Value for money. Nice location & not too far from Dubrovnik centre.
Kristian was absolutely fantastic. So friendly, warm, helpful, excellent English & went out of his way to make sure you had a great stay. This is his business & it means a lot to him. As well as making sure his guests enjoy their stay at his hotel & in Dubrovnik. Thanks for a great welcome to Croatia! Annabelle & Andy :)

Kristian was a delight to meet , extremely helpful and friendly. Nothing was too much trouble for him .The room was cleaned everyday , a small fridge meant we could shop locally to eat cold lunches and save money for meals out in the evening and keep a cold beer . The restaurant/bar was not opened in time for our stay but he has put alot of thought into it and I have no doubt it will be excellent when it opens I would heartily recommend this place.

A very pleasant stay in this hotel.
Well located in Gruz , It's easy to plan an excursion, it's just next to the bus station. It's10 min by bus of the old city, out of the crowded area just, in front of the port.
Rooms are clean and simply decorated.
Breakfast is very good.
And above all, Kristian and his family are very welcoming and nice.
They will open a restaurant, I wish them good luck for this project !!!!
