Our positive experience at Rooms Ivo, an apartment owned by the genial and accomodating Ivo Gugic and his family, genuinely increased our enjoyment and appreciation of Dubrovnik - an unbelievably lovely, but somewhat overcrowded town in Croatia. First off, this is NOT the place to go if you are looking for opulence and maximum isolation. The specialty here is Ivo himself, a wonderful man who will just as happily take you on a side-trip to Montenegro as give you four extra towels. The rest of his family, who you see interacting as normal here - making dinner, doing homework - are really priceless. His wife will even make you a home-cooked Croatian dinner - if you ask nicely!
The apartment itself is centrally located adjacent to a central entrance to the Old Town walls and a five minute walk to City Beach, so there really is no better location. We definitely had the best room in the apartment (e.g., the one with the balcony view [unfortunately the parking lot obscures a pure view of the city walls slightly, but it was surprisingly not too loud or disturbing, noise-wise]). The rooms are filled with antiques, a good A/C and comfy pillows, but only the balcony room is en suite.
Overall, we adored Ivo and recommend this place for great hospitality in Dubrovnik!
