Apartment Arapovic is a 10- minute walk away from Dubrovnik's Old Town. It is located in Boninovo, the oldest part of the town beside The Old Town.
It is a newly furnished and decorated studio apartment with twin room, comprising a kitchenette with cooking supplies and a fridge.
The apartment is a good size and fully equipped. It's in a quiet location and just a 10 minute walk along the coast to the old city. Communication and amenities were great for the price.
I didn't meet Pavo during my stay--I was in Dubrovnik for two quick nights. The apartment is really close to the old city, which was great, and it only took me about ten minutes to walk there from "home." The twin bed was comfortable, and it was nice having a little kitchen to cook in. There's a small fridge, too, and the WiFi is fast.
There was something wrong with the balcony door which made it hard to open, some water on the floor (covered with a few small carpets), and a musty, damp smell throughout the space. I had to speed shower, since the water only stayed warm for the first two minutes of showering. I also had a really hard time with the key to the place--it took me a bit to lock and unlock the door. Something with the way you hold the handle while your turning the key...
That being said, if you head to Dubrovnik, you're probably not going to spend a ton of time inside at your accommodation. You'd also be hard pressed to find a private space for just $35/night.
The apartment was a little hard to find as you cannot see the house number from the street. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out where it is in the end though. The communication was great (this could be because we speak their language :) The family is lovely. The apartment was super. The kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, cups, glasses, cuterly. A great bread knife and vegetable knife. It is only ten minutes walk from the old town and it is a lovely walk. The internet worked perfectly. The apartment was very clean. The bedding and towels were soft and very fragrant with laundry powder (This could be an issue if you are allergic). Thank you for our stay!!!
Avons passé une semaine chez les parents de Pavo qui ne parlent pas de langues étrangères
mais leurs sourires et l'accueil chaleureux de leur fils Pavo furent appréciés ainsi que les mandarines (pleine saison) laissées sur la table par sa maman, avec 2 grosses tranches de gâteau-maison + serviettes changées au milieu de semaine. Propriétaires aux "petits soins" pour leurs locataires tout en restant discrets et serviables. Nous recommandons cette adresse sans réserves
Le studio correspond aux photos de l'offre, le quartier est calme et verdoyant, à peine 10 minutes à pied de Pile Gate, arrêt desservi par la navette Atlas (aéroport/centre) En suivant la mer, passez devant l'hôtel Impérial/Hilton , aux feux, tournez à droite + 150m pour arriver sur un petit parking, prendre les escaliers à droite, maison au no 4a de la rue, sur la droite avec une belle tonnelle + petite terrasse fleurie.
A 5 minutes à pied, au rond-point, de nombreux bus desservent toute la ville/gare routière, port Gruz, un grand supermarché Konzum se trouve au fond des escaliers à droite. N'avons aucune remarque négative à mentionner, aucun problème, eau chaude, fermeture porte entrée, appartement modeste certes mais propre et fonctionnel, largement suffisant pour passer un séjour agréable, son emplacement est certainement son meilleur atout: Ne pas hésiter !

We were not actually met by the host, from the address details we received it wasn't clear which one was the apartment. After knocking on a few doors an older lady let us into the apartment. The apartment was OK for the price we paid, but it was a bit dirty around the edges and smelt of damp.
Pavo's apartment was the perfect place from which to visit Dubrovnik. The short walk to the Pile Gate to the Old City was along the sea with magnificent views. The apartment was clean and quiet and a good place to relax after a day of touring. Pavo was always courteous and responsive, an excellent host. I hope to stay there again when I return to Dubrovnik. I highly recommend it.
We got into Dubrovnik about 9pm and we were warmly met by Pavo's father. The apt was a little hard to find, mainly because it was dark. It was a 15min walk from Pile Gate. An easy walk, slightly uphill.
The location was quiet, close enough to the old town, supermarket, transport etc.The room was clean and everything was as described online. There were maps, brochures and other information provided. Internet good. No problems and I can recommend staying there.
