My girlfriend and I stayed two nights in Apartment Peppino at the end of our time in Croatia.
The owner, Tonka, was on-hand when we arrived and was very friendly and welcoming indeed - she seemed a lovely person, and was happy to answer any questions we had before leaving us to it.
A big, comfortable bed, a small but well-equipped kitchen and a clean bathroom were all present and correct, as well as a TV and good wi-fi. The only minor issue was with the hot water, which seemed to take a long time to reheat after being depleted by a shower - at least according to the temperature gauge on the side of the boiler anyway. Not a big deal though, and easily gotten around by having a shorter shower or turning the water-flow down a bit. The only other curiosity was the kitchen sink, which was a double, with a plug only in one half; the half which the tap would not reach to. Again, no big deal, and probably not even worth mentioning, but a strange design quirk.
The location was absolutely perfect - just far enough away from the main street to be quiet (a one-minute climb up some stone steps), but close enough to feel like you're right in the middle of the historic Old Town of Dubrovnik, a real fairy-tale place.
It's also well-located for access to the Airport Shuttle Bus, which stops at the cable car station above the town - on the same side that the apartment is located. It's only a 10-minute walk. On that note, it's worth mentioning that you should buy your shuttle bus ticket when you're actually on the bus. We bought ours in advance, but it transpired that we'd bought tickets for a rival company's shuttle bus and they weren't valid for the one we caught, which wasn't made clear at the time. Only a five-euro mistake, but worth mentioning.
If you're looking for comfortable, self-catering accommodation in the Old Town, I would strongly recommend Apartment Peppino.
