Where to start... plus points I guess, it's close to the old town, only 2 minutes walk from the walls.
Now onto the bad points... our main issue really was cleanliness with this place, starting with the bedrooms. All sheets were stained with god knows what, some rank flannelette sheet to sleep on and a dodgy old free standing air con unit in the corner with pipe poking out the window. The floor was literally covered in all manner of hair, long hair, short hair, curly hair, pubic hair - I could go on. I don't have to spell this out, but this place never gets cleaned between guests. There was a thick layer of dust all over the bedside table, and we were having to brush our feet clean before getting into bed. It was truly disgusting.
Then onto bathroom, as can be seen in the picture, it was thick with mould to the point where we didn't use the upstairs bathroom (stinky broom cupboard), we used the downstairs one instead as it was marginally better. This one was slightly bigger and had a bath with a shower over it, the bath was streaky with several years worth of dead skin cells. Again this bathroom hadn't been 'cleaned' I think they just cleaned the basin and toilet, the floor and bath were quite frankly laughably dirty - think student house filled with 6 boys.
So in conclusion, this place is close to the old town but unless you want to catch something I'd either spend the extra few pounds and get a hotel or stay a little further out. I'm slightly offended we paid £123.87 for two nights, it ruined our time in Dubrovnik - please don't make the same mistake!
I hope the photos stop management from denying how grim this place really is.
