“Best of both worlds, modern inside medieval outside”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2009

We were to stay half the week in Dubrovnik old town & the other half along the coast, but changed our plans to stay the whole time in Amoret 2 apartments - on Dinka Ranjike 5, behind the Pucic Palace Hotel.
Staying there gave us the feel of living in an ancient walled city, if you left the windows open you could hear the sounds of the narrow back streets & of the neighborhood - I can't imagine living in such an age.
And of course if you closed the windows you could sleep in quiet peacefulness.
Everything we wanted to do & every where we wanted to go was in easy reach of our apartment there.
Branka was a delightful hostess & has decorated her rooms with an old family house feeling complete with linens on the bed & on the table in the room - but then has added local modern art on the walls together with a framed piece of lacework from her Grandmother in our room we were told when we extended our stay.
I felt very comfortable in our modern room with a new shower & kitchenette with china in the old cupboard, up on the 3rd floor...
A week in the end was not enough time to get to do all we wanted - we never made it for the sea kayaks tour for one, perhaps another time. And maybe Branka will have tried them by then too, one of the few things she's not tried while living there she told us.
Dubrovnik, Croatia was a very pleasant surprise - they'll soon be a part of the EU & are already getting ready for that with most prices in Euros & the local Kuna (for us it was an exchange rate of 1 Dollar to 5 Kuna)
Every meal we had was good, we tried so many of them that are written up & some that weren't & thankfully we could read all our menus too. Of course so many flavors of gelato or ice cream to try for desert too, good thing there's lots of walking or stairs to work it all off!
We were happy to have stayed in old town, because when the day trippers were gone & the few cruise ships off you felt like you were a local & had the old town more to yourself.
Of course if shopping is your thing you can do that there too on or off the main street, I managed a few afternoons away on my own for some interesting gifts from local craftspersons or at the market in the nearby square - like the fish made of coconuts...
The market was there every morning with fresh produce & local dried foods or lavender & oils, so we had fruit from there & went to the local bakery & coffeeshops & ate in our room or out on the terrace patio for breakfast, which is off the 2nd floor over a walkway to the next building rooftop.
Where we were told may one day be a restaurant underneath it, something to look forward to with the work of Branka's husband I'm guessing & maybe their son will be running the restaurant there too after he's done with school by then.
There are many a museum & church & so much history in town, we read a lot of guide books - plus bought some more at the book shop Algoritam with English guidebooks on Stradun - & of course took a lot of wonderful photos all week to share.
I would of liked to go on a more historical tour, even the Ethnographic Museum in the old Granary (or Rupe - which we read means Hole) was another surprise for me, to see rooms set up as in ancient times & photos or drawing of all the old households or field equipment & traditional costumes - along with a black & white film of regular life in old town, I couldn't stand there long enough to watch it all though.
Old town has not forgotten it's soldiers & the wars, there's an exhibit & a walking War tour, along with a map posted of all the destruction - you can still see marks of it throughout old town but with UNESCO's help I think so much has been restored.
I adore the Adriatic Sea now, the waters there & the temperatures with the fresh air felt like I belonged there - I love the beach, so there you can find pebble beaches or rocky beaches or sandy beaches, or there's just the lovely clear blue green waters to look out at & we didn't even begin to see all the close islands.
Ferry rides abound from the old town harbor, as do boats to rent or glass bottom boat tours, there's a pirate looking ship & we saw cruise ships that anchored off the closest island & have ferries bring people into town, along with everyday fishing or sailing boats, kayaks for sea tours & scuba diving & more for sure.
We only took a short ferry ride to Lokrum island & to another once ancient town of Cavtat, both were good day trips - we didn't have the time for 3 islands or Elaphite islands, but from reading the guide books wished we been able to go & stay there too.
No buses or cars are in old town so there's only walking, except for a few battery operated trucks or little train looking cars with carts were in town for deliveries in the mornings usually. I can imagine in the ancient times the streets were full of animals as well, now only a few dogs & some cats.
Old town Dubrovnik is an UNESCO city & the closest island, Lokrum, is also under UNESCO & you can see why once you've visited yourself.
If you can go I'd say go now before more EU tourists arrive & watch out for the festival schedules too, because I'm sure that will make things even more crowded - there's a summer festival & others.
We missed the concerts going on in town while we were there too, but from passing a concert hall rehearsal we think that was something we should of scheduled in to do - another next time?!
We had such a lovely stay at Amoret apartments & in old town Dubrovnik, we can't wait to return! And have Branka to thank in part for that, for all her tips & kind hospitality!

Lovely apartment, stylish, top quality, spotlessly clean and a great location, also the owner Branka could not have been more helpful. We arrived by car and had to park in a car park outside the old city (as everyone does). We were having trouble finding the car park, so we called Branka, the owner and she walked out to where we were and rode with us to the car park then walked us right to the apartment. How many hotels would do that for you? We are very discerning and would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment.

We had a wonderful time in Dubrovnik. Not only did we fall in love with the marvellous city and its great location at the Adriatic sea, we were also very pleased with our choice of accommodation. We stayed 7 nights in the Revelin apartment, located at Dinka Ranjine nr 5.
The location could not be better. We enjoyed our morning visits to the local fruit and vegetable market and breakfast at our little terrace. The opportunity to stay "within" the town walls and moreover in a great historic building adds to the magnificent experience of this city.
Our host Branka was very helpful and she speaks English in a fluent way. Our room was impeccably clean and provided with every modern amenity.
If we ever have the chance to visit Dubrovnik again, we will definitely return to the Amoret apartments.

Loved this place- comfortable, cosy and ideal location behind the Pucic Palace Hotel in the old town. There are only two steps on the way to the door from the Stradum. Well decorated room with air con/ central heating, a spotless bathroom with a great shower. There was also satellite tv, a fully equipped kitchen and even a multilingual book shelf - the little details making this my favourite accomodation on our trip to Croatia. And Branca couldn't have been nicer.
I definitely recommend staying in the old town especially for first timers to Dubrovnik.

We loved the apartment we stayed in- it was beautifully, individually decorated, with everything you would need- so different to bland, samey hotel rooms or basic self-catering apartments. The best thing was the location- the apartment is right in the middle of the old town, looking out onto the cathedral square and all the comings and goings (with good enough double glazing to block it all out when you want to!). The apartment was easy to get to, without to many steps, which seems to be uncommon in Dubrovnik.
I would recommend Apartments Amoret to anyone.

We stayed in apartment Bokar for our three nights in Dubrovnik. After staying here I believe that the old town area of Dubrovnik is the only way to experience this lovely town and the Amoret apartments (either location) fit this requirement perfectly. We used the kitchenette to have our breakfast and lunch but there are so many fantastic places to either have an afternoon drink or a reasonable dinner out that we found we did this in the evening. The Cafe Buza (bar) on the outside of the city wall on the cliffs looking over the water was a great experience. Branca was very helpful and ensured our room was ready as soon as possible as we had arrived early on the ferry from Italy. Her restaurant recommendations were also very helpful. When I return to Dubrovnik I will be contacting Branca again as the apartments situated up a narrow lane off the main area were perfectly situated and very quiet at night.

It's been almost a year since we were there and I have been meaning to write this for a while now but NYC has a way of distracting you. We stayed at three of Branka's apartments and found them all to be jem's in their own right. Minceta was quaint however a little noisy. We then stayed in Lovrijenac which was great and enjoyed the balcony. We ended our stay at Divona that has an amazing view of old town. My only complaint was the noise which was caused by fellow tourists from England staying next to us and that has nothing to do with Branka or the nice apartments. That is why the apartments get 5 stars in our book and helped make our vacation wonderful.

  • Liked — location, own apartment with kitchenette
  • Disliked — noise by fellow guests had nothing to do with apartments
