My husband and I stayed here for two nights during our two week trip in Croatia. We were initially travelling as a party of four but our friends left two days before us, and we found this lovely studio apartment for two in the middle of Dubrovnik's old town.
-Location, Location, Location!!! The apartment is located in an laneway just behind the market square. Though it was close by, you could not hear any noise from the outside.
-The studio consists of high ceilings and large windows on the 3rd floor (or 2nd floor, for Europeans), so it seems very spacious and bright for two people. The decor is modern and cheerful, and the place was immaculate. We appreciated having a small kitchenette as the supermarket was so close by and we had been travelling for a little while. The apartment is accuately depicted in the the photos provided by the owner.
-Price- it was hard to believe that the studio is only 50E (please note we were there during low season) - this was the best deal we go in our entire visit to Croatia, worth every penny!
-Cleanliness - I know I mentioned this already, but we had initially stayed at another apartment in the Old Town with our two friends. The place was on the top floor and the was always a sewage smell permeating the apartment from the washroom. The explanation we were given was that the Old town's city sewers were built in the 15th century and the smell would pass. However after 4 days the smell was as strong as in the beginning. Having said this, Studio apartment Zvonko had absoutely NO SMELL and was extremely clean (even though it uses the same water system).
- the owner lives in the "new" part of the city, and works during the day. So if you are looking for someone that is always available for advice or assistance, you may need to look into a pension or hotel. This is an Apartment rental, not a hotel. We called Zvonko to ask if there was a hair dryer available and he arrived within 30 min to drop it off - that is great service!
-NO WIFI - there was surprisingly no wifi available, since every place we stayed at had complimentary wifi and with a strong signal. The owner acknowledges this, and has plans to install it. This is something to consider if WIFI is a must for your travel needs. We managed without it for two nights, but it would have been helpful to know this prior to arriving.
All in all, the only real regret I had was that we coulnd't stay here for our entire 6 night stay in Dubrovnik - I would return in a heartbeat. It was the best sobe (apartment) we stayed at in our entire two week trip and I highly recommend it. In terms of price, location, and amenities, this one is hard to beat!

Excellent location in the heart of the old town. Clean and quiet apartment. Comfortable bed. Hot shower. Only downside was the kitchen wasn't well equipped - extremely basic if you want to do your own cooking (we did has had been travelling for a while). No washer and no wifi. Would recommend.
