The owner kindly arranged for his girlfriend to pick us up from the port when we arrived, which was very much appreciated. We upgraded to the penthouse apartment on our arrival, just because the views were so amazing from the top floor! Getting a full view of the sunsets were worth the extra money. The penthouse apartment is beautifully presented with plenty of space and comfortable beds and sofas. It is very modern throughout and well designed. The apartment is perhaps a ten minute walk to the beach in one direction and another 10 minutes to town, both perfectly do-able. The neighborhood is very quiet and people are friendly. Just a small point to note, the check-out time is 10am which we weren't aware of and we had had a late night at Carpe Diem! We were caught a little by surprise but it wasn't a problem to stay a little longer to organise ourselves!

We have been to Hvar for the last 5 years and this is the best place ever. 15 min Wall to carpe diem. 5 min to supermarket. Best place to see the sunset, super fresh penthouse. So much better IRL then in pic. Total renovate. A must see apartment. The host is one of the best hosts i ever met. Haha yes! This rewiev is real! Haha.

The apartment is great and the location is that which makes this Bubalo apartments excellent . Everything is near and city centre is 3 minutes away. You must visit! The host is exquisit ..he even makes lunch for guests ..what else can you want.

Me and my friends stayed for 4 days. Clean, nice and good style! Good prices. Close to city center and a nice beach. Vlado is very nice. The rooms are equipped with air conditioners. Go go go to bubalo if you go to hvar

Really enjoyed my stay - Vlades son picked us up straight away from the port and took us to the apartment. We got a warm welcome and got a nice fish meal with white wine on our second day! Payment was very straightforward and they washed our towels and cleaned kitchen for us! Would recommend for everyone 😎

Stayed last week - Booked a studio apartment for two nights, but stayed only one night at the Bubalo in the end. I had paid the apartments in advance, on booking.com when I arrived the landlord was extremely annoyed that I had already paid in advance and said I should not have done this and that he does not have anyone staying that pays in advance as booking.com charge him a % and he gets bank charges. I had to insist I had already paid but he said I don't have your money. I checked my bank account and the money had been taken out. I explained this to him, but again he was annoyed and said I had to pay him in cash. He then rang booking.com service, and would not let me go whilst he spoke to them. Customer service had to reiterate to him that I had nothing to pay, they said it was up to him to charge the account as I had already paid. Once he put the phone down he would not leave me alone and said I had to pay in cash and then I had to sort it with booking.com later. And that it was not his fault! I refused to do this and rang customer service myself he said an operator was explaining to him how to charge my account. Afterwards he was still annoyed with me. The room he gave me was not the one I booked on line. It was a basement, dark and dull and The only window was under the car port, so you couldn't see daylight. the power sockets crackled and had some wires in the bathroom hanging from the ceiling. It was very depressing. The worst part was it also had an adjoining door onto their house? And all we could here was them in the kitchen all the time, the walls were paper thin. I asked to be moved to the apartment I had booked and they said I could not as the other room had a problem with the water, when I insisted as it was not the room I booked they said I would have to stay one night and could move the following day after ten when it had been cleaned? That night we returned at ten, at which point he wa having a party outside our room. I put up with the noise until 11.30 when I asked them to keep the noise down, they then called it a day! The following day I returned from being out for the day, they had agreed to move my things whilst I was out, When I returned he resumed to move us and admitted someone else was in the room. He added that he only Puts photos on Booking.com as a reference and this is not the room you get! He also only uses them to get the bookings but does not want to pay their commission that's why he wants payments in cash. I had an email from booking.com to state I had not shown up? He offered our money back for the one night but when I said I would have the money and move even though it was six o'clock at night he then refused and said there was nothing wrong with the apartment. He was very intimidating and extremely rude. He eventually gave us the money back for one night then immediately would not let us pack our things but escorted us off the premises. He turned the wifi off so we could not book another room. We then had to walk with all the luggage for an hour to find somewhere to stay. I have been using Booking.com for years, and other sites, I have never in this time felt the need to make a complaint, and I don't write any reviews. There are so much nicer apartments to stay in Hvar. I also noticed since on trip advisor that other people have had trouble with him not giving them the rooms they booked. I would hate for others to experience the same pproblems we had, if you book these apartments do so at your own peril!

We stayed at this apartment hostel for thee nights, very nice and clean rooms! The hosts were superfriendly and very helpful! Close to the city center and nice beaches. We would really recomend you to book this nice hostel! We would defenetly come back to this if we were to visit hvar again!

We stayed in the studio apartment which had everything you would need and was clean and very comfortable. We like to be able to cook if we want to and the kitchenette and balcony space is perfect for doing this. The studio is about 15 minutes walk to the port in Hvar on a very picturesque path along the coast. The BEST thing about the apartment's location is it is a 5 minute walk to the cliff side by the sea which leads on to an amazing path down to a truly beautiful beach (our favourite on the island and full of fish if you are a fan of snorkelling!!) Even better than the apartment itself is Vlado the host. He very kindly came to pick us up from the bus stop when we arrived and made sure we had everything we needed. They offer several add on facilities like bike hire/ laundry at great prices. He guided us in the right direction for the beach and told us where to go to get some fresh fish from the market and offered up the bbq downstairs to cook it on. When the time came to cook up our freshly cooked fish Vlado even stepped in to add some expert assistance and offered up some of the FANTASTIC olive oil he had in his kitchen. We left Hvar with a free bottle of grappa and another lift back to the bus stop from Vlado. Perfect place to relax and enjoy the beauty of the island and the host is a true gentleman and will ensure that you have everything you need to enjoy your holiday!

We were a group of 10 sharing 3 apartments (booked 2 x studio and 1 x 1-bed apartment via booking.com). The actual apartments we were checked into were 1 x studio (apartment 1 for 2 people), 1 x 1-bed (apartment 2 for 5 people) and another 1-bed for 3 people that was on the lower ground floor that we had never seen before. It was not any of the properties shown on booking.com. There was another apartment (no.3) which was occupied at the time which I believe should have been the apartment we should have been given but this was not the case. There was nothing we could do as they were a group of 4 and us a 3 so we had no choice but to take the apartment downstairs. The host was very apologetic but it didn’t make up for the inconvenience of the group downstairs being split up from the rest. Regardless, the room was OK (a lot more dated than the rooms above but it was clean). The only thing was that the 3rd person to shower would most likely be having a lukewarm shower as the water would run cold after the 2nd shower. As the room is lower ground, there was hardly any natural light and the lights inside the rooms were very dim. There was a very good and reliable air conditioner though which was very much appreciated. Apartment 2 does not have air con in the bedroom but there is one in the living area. Towels and iron are provided. No kettle in any of the apartments. The hosts were kind enough to pick us up from Hvar port when we arrived and gave us a lift back when we departed. They also provide a laundry facility for 50HRK. They wash your clothes and send back to your room in a laundry basket for you to hand on the dryers provided on the patio/balconies. The apartment is approx. 15mins walk to Hvar town and there is quite a long staircase to go up/down to reach the main road. There is a supermarket approx. 8mins walk away (en route to Hvar town). Overall experience was good but I would recommend double checking the apartment you have booked online is in fact the apartment you will be given. They have 6 apartments in total and only 3 are available to be booked on booking.com. The remaining are advertised on other booking websites.
