From right beginning till end it was a great stay never encountered in the personal service sense.
Few days before we were supposed to arrive Petra emailed us through the hotel chain site we booked. In view of our arrival in the evening around 21.00 hrs we opted for a transfer arranged by Petra. It seemed rather expensive but to cut down on the hassle in looking for busses and directions in the dark, we made the right decision. We were met at the arrivals and were in the taxi literally within 5 mins.
The taxi dropped us off at Ploce gate where Petra awaited us. She warmly welcomed us and walked us through the gate into the Old Town, along the way telling us some history so it was at the same time a small walking tour and it was very much appreciated.
The apartment itself was excellent located, you couldn't asked for a better location. There are many many many apartments but with most you still had to walk up some stairs, and boy there are enough stairs to last you a lifetime, before you even reached the front-door. Where as Martecchini was basically on the ground-floor and the stairs to be climbed were inside the building itself. The location was excellent as well to make a pit-stop for any break during the day while out.
We had a small apartment Antonio at the side/back, good as it was quieter but still enough to hear what was happening at the square, bad as you didn't really have a nice/good view. But no complaints as the apartment was very comfy, the bathroom was spacious with a washing machine and the tiny kitchette provided all you needed.
However for those who arrive in the evening it might be handy to beforehand bring along some coffee/tea and/or other necessities as the supermarkets close around 21.00 hrs.
Petra expained everything, from some history to what is a must to do and recommended some restaurants as well. She was available almost whole day and night, you have to wonder whether she even sleeps... She was always available on whatsapp with whatever questions you might have.
The night before our departure she contacted us again and we arranged how to leave the keys behind. It all worked out very fine.
We took the shuttle to the airport which was very conveniently located just a mere 10 mins walk. And it was a great recommendation in the end to take the transfer in and the shuttle out as the bus only passes nearby on the way to airport.
Overall such a great experience to have stayed at Martecchini and thank you so very much, Petra, for everything and for giving us such a lovely warm welcome and thoughout the stay when we met you. It was so very much appreciated. Top class !!
