Where to begin. Every experience in this hotel has been great. We stayed for 4 nights and just loved this hotel. All the staff we encountered were impeccably courteous, efficient, informative, helpful and unobtrusive. We had checked in first before retrieving our luggage and the 60 steps to get to the property were daunting at first. David, who checked us in had offered to help with our luggage which we welcomed. When we got back from the car to retrieve our luggage, there was a change of staff and imagine our surprise when the new staff who took over, Nicky, was waiting for us downstairs, introduced himself and helped with the luggage. That bit of efficient turnover was impressive. The room was spacious and I loved that the bathroom was more roomy (particularly the shower area) than most we had encountered during our travel within Croatia. The towels were soft and everyday, they were replaced and the room was tidied and cleaned. There was also a basket of fruit in our room and welcome drinks when we arrived. The weather was nice and cool at nights and the few times we needed the AC, it cooled the room enough, after which, we turned it off and preferred to open the window to let the cool air in. Therefore, we did not have an issue with the AC which was noted by some. Because the hotel is located in a pedestrians' only zone, we feel asleep to the sounds of the gentle waves lapping against the shore. This is also a great place to watch the incredible Croatian sunset. Breakfast was excellent with several choices and except for the basics, you could order eggs and a combination from the menu. This was only prepared after you ordered. The view from the terrace where you have breakfast is quite stunning. This makes it worthwhile to stay in this hotel. Since there are only 6 rooms, you only have that many number of guests to share the terrace with, so you can be assured of peace and quiet to enjoy the scenery. Its location is so convenient. Restaurants, bars, a bus stop to catch a ride to the Old Town, a beach and even a trail that winds along the water is all within reach. It is time to replace the mattresses of the beds (twin beds pushed together) in the room we stayed in, as they have seen better days, I am sure. Surprisingly, my back didn't complain. The carpet needs to be spot cleaned. There is no parking and to be fair, if you ask, they do provide suggestions where to park. It is however, quite expensive at the public parking nearby. The usual charge is 10 kuna/hr on the street and in the public garage, they only do daily, weekly and monthly parking. A weekly pass will set you off by 600 kuna.
Could not believe our good fortune to have found this old world gem of a boutique hotel at affordable prices. It made our first ever visit to Dubrovnik amazing. To return to the quiet of our own 'villa'- as we had a double room suite, with private balcony overlooking the quiet bay of Lapad, at the end of each day we could relax, enjoy a glass of local wine and rest our tired feet watching the sunset over the water...all to ourselves. Another perk was the simplicity to just walk downstairs for dinner at one of our best restaurant experiences in Croatia and eat at the villa restaurant, CASA. Make sure you book ahead, its popular. Breakfast was enchanting. A private deck overlooking Lapad Bay with freshly made omelette and hot 'Semmel' in Austrian style was a great start to the day. We'll be back.
Stayed here overnight. Had a double room which just about fitted the bed. Beds were very comfy, bedlinen high spec. Carpet in the room was badly stained by the door. One window but the view was spectacular. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I didn't really research hotel prices that much but 125 euro for a cramped double seems excessive but I thought dubrovnik was expensive. Nice terrace for breakfast and drinks, but £10 for a gin n tonic is pushing it. Definitely not what a UK guest would expect from the description of "boutique".
This is quite a small hotel (only 6 rooms). But the rooms were fairly spacious for European standards and clean. The carpets were very light in color so there were some visible stains but defintley nothing to worry about. Bathroom was very clean— a big pet pieve of mine. What makes this place stand out the most is the excellent service by the employees. Every single one of the front desk clerks that we encountered during our stay (20th-25th of Aug), including the lady that does the cooking and cleaning, were very hospitable and friendly. They were always happy to help. They have a small selection of breads, spreads, yogurt, cereal, fruits, and drinks for breakfast but the best part about it is that you can make an order of eggs, omelets, and etc... that they will cook for you which made the breakfast very satisfying. The location is great as it is literally a few steps from the beach in Lapad. Away from the crowds and chaos of the Old Town especially when they have multiple cruise ships docked. Not as crowded as Venice but getting there! The entrance to the hotel is right in the middle of the pathway were the restaurant patio tables are. Just past Hotel Kompas if you are coming from the the Lapad beach. There are quite a few steps to climb to reach the hotel but you can consider it good exercise. Not that hard at all. Dubrovnik is quite a mountainous/hilly area so there will stairs everywhere. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel especially if you want to stay by the beach and away from hustle and bustle of old town.
I am just in love with this place! Hotel is super cozy and intimate, great location right on beach with a huge terrace overlooking sea and sunsets! i stayed here for 10 days and didn't want to leave. Staff was super kind & friendly, management top notch! service great. i will be back thank you for everything
Booked in this place for three days and was really happy with everything, except the 60 odd steps to get up to the front door...lol... Yeah ok the steps probably served a purpose, maybe walked off my afternoon beers... Anyway this little 6 room apartment hotel is very nice and is located towards the end of wide pedestrian access only road with fantastic views across the bay. The rooms are average size with AC, wifi, a TV and small fridge, there is no safe in the room. The beds are ok and allow for a reasonable nights sleep. The rooms are clean and maintained to an acceptable standard. Breakfast is a little limited however does its job and sets you up for the day. The outdoor meals area/ balcony overlooks the bay and is very private. The staff were very helpful and attentive to our needs. Below the hotel is a restaurant and if that doesn't tickle your fancy there are numerous restaurants near by... Costs about 50 euro by taxi from the airport so do yourself a favour and figure out the shuttle bus times... I had a very enjoyable stay and would happily recommend this place..
My mother and I were in Dubrovnik for a week and it was recommended that we went to the Lapad are on our first night. We walked down to the sea front and found this delightful restaurant right on the water. We had a lovely seafood meal, it was not cheap but the setting was so lovely it made up for it. The staff were very polite and the whole evening felt really relaxing. I would definitely go back if I am in Dubrovnik again.
We went for 5 days for a mini moon. The hotel itself was lovely with only about 5/6 rooms in total. We had a nice balcony with stunning views of the sea. Only thing is there is currently a lot of construction going on when we stayed but that didn't spoil our time there. There is about 50 steps to climb to get to the hotel and transport cannot drop you off outside either as it is pedestrianised. There is no pool either but they do have a stunning outdoor area where you can relax and take in the sea views. It is on a coastal path that is very popular and we enjoyed exploring around. The staff were very friendly and super efficient. The food was nice but we noticed when there was a change in chef as one was very nice and food tasty, the other not so great. We didn't get the opportunity to sit in the balcony as spent most of the day walking and exploring. The shower and bath were great, unusual to find a Jacuzzi bath in a hotel.
We stayed for a week in the Villa Wolff and loved it. Many of the reviews you'll read are about the restaurant downstairs which I agree is pricey and the service not too friendly but don't confuse that with the hotel. While owned by the same people it is two separate businesses and the service is worlds apart. The villa has a fabulous terrace to enjoy your breakfast each morning with freshly cooked options included alongside the continental help your self offerings. The terrace is also a great place to catch some sun and relax in between sightseeing. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful - the reception/bar is manned 24 hours a day so you can always find someone to ask any question you may have. The rooms are spacious and more than comfortable - especially considering the price we paid. Only 6 rooms means it has a homely feel which we much prefer to the very large hotels which surround it and you get to chat to your fellow guests over breakfast. The only downside are the steps you have to take to climb up to the hotel each day. You need to be reasonable fit and able to tackle them but it is so worthwhile if you do. Great place and would recommend for those who want a friendly and relaxing place rather than the impersonal large resort hotel format. Thank you guys we loved every minute of our stay and the views are stunning.
The staff at the restaurant -a guy in the morning a girl in the afternoon- are HORRIBLE hosts (waiters). Not ONE smile, even tho we tried cracking little jokes (as its OUR job to make THEM smile not vice versa). We asked for help ordering diff fish and seafood the girl just said "its all written on the menu"? Really??? Awful experience. Especially for what they charge. Am I supposed to learn croatian and graduate in marine life so I can order a darn meal? It would seem so. Im never going back, neither should you.
