“Good to stay”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

Although the hostel is about 30 mins walk from the main bus station, I suggest the travelers taking No. 8 at the main bus station. Getting off at the Pizzeria la Luna, depending on your energy level, you can either climb the stair on the left (then turn right and walk ~20M); or walk straight and turn left at the first corner (walk uphill for ~50M). You will then see a small sign "Jele Rooms". The hostel is not easy to find and hope the above helps.

I stayed at grandma's apartment for three nights. The studio room is clean and large. The location is good, just short bus ride to the old town and to the beach. However, do check the bus schedule as it's not that frequent.

Reviewed 24 September 2012

had a very pleasant 3 night stay in mid-september. studio Room was clean & well presented multi-channel tv, nice shower and fully equipped kitchen.

Jele rooms is located a nice stroll or short bus journey to the old town or to lapad beach. 2 bakeries, pizzeria and supermarket close by.
Transfer to the airport can be arranged and in our experience was cheaper than those into town when we first arrived.
staff were very welcoming and informative ensured our visit was relaxing and hassle free.

The thing about Dubrovnik is that it isn't necessary to stay near the Old Town, which is the most common mistake tourists make. Jele Rooms has fully-equipped rooms on both sides of the bay, each an easy bus ride from the Old Town on Dubrovnik's efficient bus system. (You can buy tickets at the Old Town Square, Viktoria; a ticket costs 12 kuna.) Lile and her mother run Jele Rooms and it's not a hotel--you should phone ahead or email to make sure they know what time you're coming. The apartments are clean, large, and mine had a superb view (I was in the Hektorivica apartment). Lile is warm, professional, and knowledgeable about everything from the Dubrovnik Card to what bus you take to get to the bus station. Her restaurant recommendations were spot on. The cost was less than half what it cost me for a small dank room near Viktoria Square the last time I stayed. I learned a lot more about Dubrovnik staying at Jele Rooms than I would have, had I stayed near the Old Town.

Room Tip: Ask for the Cvijica apartments if you want to be closer to the bus station. Ask for the Hekorivica a...

It is a family run residence.
It was a mixed experience. When we arrived, there was no one to welcome you. After few minutes of waiting and trying to find some one in the residence, and no one to pick up the phone number displayed, the neighbors helped. Then we realized that we have to go to another hotel, Lele rooms, which is run by the daughter of Jele. It was bit far from old city and lots of stairs for the luggage. Though they helped to transfer to the new place, there was nothing much in terms of service. The family is busy, and may to be available all the time.
The apartment was very good at Lele rooms, and the kitchen was nice. Bus number 4 connects you with the old city, and no 7 to the bus station or port. The frequency of bus is not very good, may be every 30 min to 1 hr. Remember that the tickets bought outside the bus (in counter) is costs 12 Kuna, while in the bus it is 15 Kuna. The ticket can be used for 1 h or 2 trips. There are some shops, bars and restaurants near by. Enjoy Dubrovnik.

We stayed for 4 nights in July. Jele rooms is run by a mother daughter duo who were exemplary hosts. They own apartments across dubrovnik all within 20min walk of the old town (centre of tourism).

They are more than happy to transfer you to and from the bus/ferry terminal, and generally provide for all your needs, including beach towels!

The owners also sat down with us at the beginning to go through the main sites and excursions in dubrovnik. She had recommendations of excursion company which she informed us in a very non-pushy way.

If you happen to stay at grandma jele's apartment, she has a beautiful fruit garden at the back of the house.

Overall the facilities were fantastic, the A/C was very powerful, the rooms were clean and the view from the apartment we stayed in (the daughters house) was stunning. But most of all we have to mention the hospitality we were showed, which thoroughly exceeded our expectations.

I'm sure this review echos many others and therefore Jele rooms is a must stay if you are in Dubrovnik.

We liked our stay at Jele, the rates, rooms, service. One thing that was completely bothersome was the loudness of the grandmother who lived there, I swear she had no concept of tone.
