3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2011

Like many of the apartments in the hillside in Hvar, this is a multilevel unit in which the owner resides at the top. The owner's name is Magda, and she is pretty friendly. Her English is good enough to converse about any of your needs while staying there. We got a room with two twin beds. The room was very small, but had lots of convenient cupboards for storage space. The balcony was nice and had a great view of the harbour. The air conditioning was also very strong, which was perfect and totally necessary given the temperature (which we were told was hot, even for July in Hvar).

The only complaints we noted were the ad on booking.com said there was laundry in every room. Our "laundry" consisted only of a big red bucket to hand wash in, and a clothesline on our balcony which had 2 clips on it only. We did hand laundry which was fine. The other complaint was ants in the unit, but mostly they were just in the bathroom, and would only be crawling along the cracks by the walls. They didn't bother us any, and you'd probably be pretty hard pressed to find any hillside apartment in Hvar without some ants. So we didn't really care, but I'm pointing it out just in case insects really bother you.

Overall, this apartment suited our needs. We stayed 7 nights, and the price was great. Would go back. Free wifi also worked well.

We booked a room with two single beds through booking.com, but our room looked a lot smaller than on the pics. It actually was so small it felt claustrophobic. The beds were not comfortable, with old and bumpy matresses. Also, there was a refrigerator in the room which made an annoying sound. We complained about it to the son of the owner, he was very nice and offered us another, bigger room. After which he had a big row with his mother while we just stood there... Felt very awkward. The new room still had one big bed (which we didn't want, not being a couple), but we decided to take it anyway. The bed was more comfy but still rather old and run down. Same goes for the bathroom. The shower screen was broken, we had to mop the floor every time after showering. We only got a couple of towels, and they were very old. I think you can do a lot better than Jakic in Hvar!

The apartment wasn't very trendy, but it was just what we needed, and we enjoyed many sunsets from the balcony. We stayed there for a week in july and really enjoyed ourselves. It was a nice walk downtown and the air condition kept the sleeping temperature pleasant. There were also a free wifi.
