“As others have stated, great view, great service”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

The hotel is some 20 mins walk up the hill, not too much even on a hot weather, but worth pointing out. Being a bit farther from the city center means also that the beach nearby isn't too crowded. The beach is just 100 m away down a bit rocky footpath with two restaurants; one good, one decent.

The room we were staying was spotless and well furnished with fridge and everything you need to cook a meal should you choose to.

The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable of activities on the island. They offered to pick us up from a bus station near the harbor and bring our luggage to us when we were about to depart on a catamaran. Recommended!

My husband and I stayed at Apartments Irena in September 2011 for one week. Irena was very friendly and helpful, picking us up from the bus station and taking us to the supermarket on the way. the room was spotless and really lovely, actually bigger than we needed and excellent for the price. what we loved the most was the large balcony with the most stunning view. every night we couldn't resist taking more and more photos of the beautiful sunsets over the island. this was most definitely the highlight of staying here.

the walk to the closest beach is more like a climb, going down was fine but we were exhausted climbing back up in the heat. this wasn't a problem though as there are so many other lovely places to swim and we usually walked into town and then found somewhere to swim from there.

we had a lovely stay here and would recommend it to others, unless they have trouble walking as the walk up to the apartments is tough in the heat...but saying that most of the island is on a hill so this will be the case with many apartments on the island!

These apartments are in peacful neighborhood, are clean, well equiped (just missing the micro-waves), with conditioned air in both rooms and a nice balcony where you can have your meals. About 5/10 minutes walking from one of the most beatifull beaches in Hvar and 15 minutes from the center oh Hvar. There is a grocery abou 200 metros where you can find everything to your breakfast. Irena is very helpfull and will provide you all the information you need.

Irena is an excellent host. Our room was spotless and the morning view out over the bay was to die for. Sure, the walk back and forth to town is a bit long, but that just meant that we could enjoy our after-supper ice cream "guilt free". If you're looking for a great place in Hvar - one that won't break your personal bank - this is the place for you.

I had made a booking at Irena's Hvar apartment for 2 nights in June 2011. On arrival, she told me that she was not aware of the booking. I showed her the emails (where she had even confirmed the booking) but she still said that she had nothing available, but would arrange accommodation near her house, which she did. However, I have no way of knowing whether this accommodation was comparible in standard to Irena's apartment, which I never saw. Nor did I have a chance to experience the cooking of her husband which I had looked forward to.
A bad impression was immediately created in my mind. It was clear that Irena had received a potential booking from a large group and had merely shifted me out of her apartment to make room for this group. I would advise other future single travellers to be aware of this as this could happen to them to.

aneri11, Owner at Apartments Irena, responded to this review, December 23, 2011
As the owner, I have to respond to this impression. The guest who has written impression was not staying with as.The very same gentleman we were in touch by email about booking but he never paid a deposit, which would confirm your reservation and we concluded that they have withdrawn from the reservation. On the specific date it appeared and demanded to stay with as.As a good host, you can see from previous impressions ,I immediately helped him to find alternative accommodation. From all we can conclude that the gentleman was not staying with us but was his fault because he did not pay the deposit to confirm reservation.If the gentleman says otherwise, please enclose the proof of his deposit payment for the reservation.
thank you in advance ....

Very nice rooms , very very friendly owner Irena and great views from the balcony. Room is very spacious and added kitchen is a big luxury. Only downside is that its a bit far from centre but worth every penny.

Clean, spacious, well equipped apartment at a superb price. Irena could not have been more helpful. Good location a short walk from the town centre (pack walking shoes for the hills - cannot be avoided in Hvar). Close to a nice beach. Would highly recommend these apartments.
