“Well located but be prepared for the steps”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We booked apartment 3 through Concorde travel in Dublin. This is a 1 bedroom apartment at the top of this building of 3 apartments.

As all the other reviews have noted there's lots of steps. In the case of this apartment 124 from the main street. When arriving and leaving with bags you should approach from the north city Buza gate. There are still steps but its much easier.

Its of a perfectly adequate size with acceptable facilities but nothing special. The shower was a bit on the small size (I'm 6 ft) and kept getting backed up.

Two things did irritate me:

* Having to deal with our own rubbish. This involved taking bags to a skip outside the Buza gate.
* Having to buy our own toilet roll.

Neither of these things are particularly bad just a little unusual to me. I got the impression that this is normal practice in Dubrovnik old town.

Room Tip: Apartments 2 and 3 are quieter but the stairs are steep.

We loved staying here. We didn't mind the steps as it added to the atmosphere and charm of the place for us. It was great to have the air con and the apartment itself is in the shade so it never really good too hot. The location was perfect for us as everything was only a short distance away. The apartment is basic but clean and had everything we needed including a hairdryer. We would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends.

The first introduction to this apartment was a trek through the streets and steps of the city. It was torture with suitcases and the heat. Then the apartment itself is another 30 stairs up. The apartment was fine nothing exceptional but it was clean and had air con, the bed was on the floor and not comfy if you have a bad back you would have a rough week here . we got used to the steps after a while there is 100 steps up from the street but it was still hard going do not stay here of you are unfit or of the older generation you will suffer!! it is a beautiful city but stay outside maybe in Lapad which is a ten minute bus ride and come and see the city at your leisure.

I was looking forward to our trip to Croatia which we booked from 18th to 25th April this year we arrived after having a pleasant flight with Aer Lingus, we got to our stop and was met by the manager who walked us to the apartment, and what a walk it was!!! with 2 cases and a carry on to pull it was at least a 10 minute walk, by the time we got to the apt we were breathless with all the steps, once inside the apt it was basic,but clean, although there was no microwave,toaster,or iron, essentials in any accomadation, we left apt to have a look around the old town where the apt was, we had 80 steps to go up and down each time which we werent expecting flat shoes are an ESSENTIAL, Dubrovnik is a beautiful town especially the OLD WALLED TOWN what beauty, the views and the islands all worth visiting be sure to ask exactly where you are staying and double check with the travel agent or trip adviser!!!!!!! for accurate advise HAPPY HOLIDAYS.

The apartment was at the top of the house and comfortable, but the door to the bathroom/toilet did not fully close. Although it was clean and well-situated, the beds were not very comfortable. You have to be fit to stay here, since you have to go up/down steps to get anywhere from this apartment. The landlady is very helpful.

We travelled to Dubrovnik with the intention of experiencing living within the Old Town at close quarters - Apartments Antuninska didn't disappoint!
Upon arrival found our apartment (No.1) well equipped except for a microwave, spacious, tidy and in good condition (see photos). The woman acting as caretaker, who lived just next door, was polite & helpful. Towels were changed midweek. Bath was a touch on the small side, however this was never going to be an issue for us as we were out and about every day to see the sights. If you want your luxuries, you stay in a hotel.
Couple of important points;
as the streets are narrow you do tend to be able to hear every word of a conversation in the street or the chatter of passers-by. However we found this could easily be solved by shutting the windows & turning on the air-conditioning.
Old Town = lots of steps = not for those lacking mobility. This is worth bearing in mind as you do have to carry your cases between the Buza gate entering the Old Town and the apartments. As a result the 7/8 minute walk can take somewhat longer.
So, in summary, the apartments were exactly what we were looking for. We got a great buzz out of getting up each day and being surrounded by a location that truly makes you feel as if you've gone back in time. If we're lucky enough to make it back to Dubrovnik we'll use the same base again.

  • Liked — Location within the Old Town
  • Disliked — Steps (but that's the Old Town for you!)
