This studio apartment is ideally situated on the Old Port in Old Town, just above Poklisar restaurant overlooking the harbour and the dock for departures to Islands. This is a modern, tastefully-decorated studio apartment with private bathroom and great sea views. Amenities include air-conditioning, kitchenette, and wireless internet access.
We never ended up meeting Darko as his guests before us had a car accident. Darko was kind enough to support the family and offer us new accommodation. Darko organised lovely accommodation in a prime position and refunded us money for the inconvenience. He organised for us to be picked up from the bus station and taken to the accommodation. From our experience he has been accommodating, kind and helpful.
The studio is in a great location in the Old Port, and exactly as described and pictured on the site. It's small but perfectly comfortable, with a simple and homely feel. It is noisy in the evenings in summer, but that applies to all Old Town properties - in my opinion it's worth it for the location, and it's nothing that some earplugs can't fix.
One caveat: the kitchen facilities and cookware are very limited, so this is not a place for someone who wants to whip up serious gourmet feasts, but fine for some simple self-catering.
Darko is a friendly and helpful host. The apartment is not entirely obvious to find, so ensure you get good instructions beforehand.
We stayed for a week at Apartment Bruno. We chose this studio apartment for it's location and the other reviews and were not disappointed. As we arrived late, Darko arranged for a car to meet us and was waiting for us in town when we arrived. He was a good host and there was lots of information on Dubrovnik in the apartment too.
It is very easy to reach from the city gate and the sound of the waves lapping the harbour at night was fantastic.
Had a fantastic 5 days in Darko's comfortable and perfectly located room. He was an excellent host - he offered to arrange for someone to pick us up from the airport (for 30 Euro) and was there to greet us when we arrived. Cannot emphasize enough how excellent the location is, as we were literally steps away from the port. The room itself was as described and perfect for us (20-something couple).
Darko was right there to meet and greet us when we arrived and spoke perfect English and was very helpful. The apartment is just as described and the location was perfect. We had a wonderful time in this amazing city and would highly recommend Darko's apartment to any single or couple wishing to be in the heart of the walled city. The air conditioning worked great as did all the amenities. Bed was very comfortable and kitchen adequate. We're a couple in our 60's and had a fantastic time.
The apartment is located right in the thick of things in the old city. It's a great location, but as in all places in these kinds of locations it was a little noisy (restaurant downstairs). However, its a great place and we would recommend to others. We never actually got to meet Darko, however he had kindly invited us to his Birthday Party the night we arrived - and unfortunately I wasn't feeling well so we didn't go along.
My wife and I stayed here for four nights in late July to early August in 2012.
The apartment is very clean and tidy. We felt comfortable immediately. The location could not be better - right in the old town! The view of the harbor is very nice. The bed is comfortable. The shower was very good. The apartment is very well cared for.
There is a stovetop and mini fridge, but preparing meals here would probably be a challenge because of limited counter space and cookware. This was not a problem for us because we were planning on eating out while we were there.
Darko was a very welcoming and gracious host. He gave us great suggestions for sights and restaurants.
Unfortunately, the air conditioner was broken when we arrived. Darko immediately called to have it fixed, but the repair people were not able to get there before we left. Darko gave us a fan and a bottle of cold white wine which helped!
We highly recommend this apartment. The location is ideal, it is very comfortable, and Darko is very responsible, responsive, and helpful. Stay here!
