Apartments Iris-Doris
Ranked #18 of 169 Speciality Lodging in Hvar
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Stayed for 7 nights, and can't wait to go back. The accommodations were nothing short of amazing. Once we arrived to Hvar, Iris was waiting for us at the bus station and transported us to the apartment with all of our luggage (she did the same upon our departure). I loved how close we were to the city, only a 5-7 minute walk. Even the walk was enjoyable as we took in the sights. The apartments were very clean and air conditioned, and we had access to wi-fi and satellite TV. The owners very friendly and went above and beyond for us. We can't wait to return to Hvar, and we hope to have the same accommodations when we return.

Stayed here for 6nts at the end of July and had booked accommodation the previous October.
Had emailed Iris with a few questions and she was always quick to respond.
Arrived from Split via catamaran and Iris had arranged for her mother ( Rose ) to collect us from the bus station.

Once at the apartment ( a five minute walk into Hvar town centre ) Rose showed us around and also went through information as to what beaches we might want to visit, restaurants, excursions etc which we found really useful.

The apartment was brilliant- everything really new and clean. The bedroom had French windows that opened onto a huge terrace that had afternoon sun between 4-8pm!!The kitchen was spotless with a very useful sandwich maker, kettle and anything else you might need. Bathroom nice and modern with excellent shower. We had a large supply of towels and Rose even came to change them after 3nts !!

This was really lovely accommodation in a small block in a residential area. All apartments had a different terrace or balcony area with a variety of parasols, chairs and tables etc on three floors.
The only thing we didn't have was a TV - which surprised us as everything else was so amazing.
( not that we go on holiday to watch TV )

For what we paid this was excellent value and we really loved people watching in Hvar and all the fabulous yachts.

Thank you Iris and Rose for making it a lovely stay.

Room Tip: We loved our middle floor apartment with large terrace !!

We spent 2 nights at the Iris Apartments as part of our honeymoon trip but would have happily have stayed longer.
Upon arrival we were met by Rose, Iris’ mother who showed us round the apartment and ran through the local map and information sheets which we found invaluable. The apartment was spotlessly clean, bright and airy and the kitchen was very well appointed. After nearly 2 weeks of eating out it was a pleasure to be able to eat in and enjoyed very much being able to eat our dinner with the privacy of our own balcony.
Hvar town is an easy 10minute walk down-hill and a welcome walk back to the apartment after eating too much in town. The walk is no problem at all for the moderately fit.

Iris cancelled my booking with no warning just a few days before I was due to leave for Croatia. The reason was because she had not been able to accept a deposit by any of the means of payment I suggested (her Paypal account was not set up to receive funds, and she was unwilling to accept a Money Gram payment via the post office). Her only suggestion was IBAN or cheque, both of which incurred a £25 bank charge, which for a payment of £22 is extortionate!

I had been responding to her very quickly but Iris was incredibly slow at replying to my emails, often taking 8 days to reply and even then only when pushed. My friend and I are staying in 5 other places all over Croatia and I have not had ANY other problems with booking accommodation. Iris only seems to care about taking money and not about providing good customer service to holidaymakers. She runs a very unprofessional set-up. She should have a better way of taking payments for deposits, such as an online payment system or credit card facility, like many other establishments.

I can only guess that her guest house is not registered or set up as a proper company, and many people will run the risk of being left high and dry if they book with Iris as there seems to be no comeback. Once she has your money, where is the guarantee that she will actually honour the booking? You may well turn up there and find that Iris denies ever having received your money!

I have now found alternative accommodation for the same price and no deposit needed. Unlike Iris, the new guesthouse owner has been delightful to deal with. A blessing in disguise! Iris is just out to make a quick buck and doesn't care how she gets it or who she upsets in the process.

We spent two nights in Iris-Doris apartments in the end of june 2013. We called them when we arrived at the bus stop and luckily they had an apartment for us.
We were picked up at the bus station by Iris' mom and driven to the apartment a couple of minutes away.
Iris and her mom was extremely helpful regarding what to do in Hvar and over all this was the best place we stayed during our holiday. we could easily spend a week at this place!

You will never get better service anywhere. It's just a few minutes walking away from the centre and is quiet and peaceful. We even had a big balcony!

The apartments are modern, clean and airconditioned. Stay here and you will have the best time in Hvar.

Thank you Iris for a great stay!

Room Tip: Iris also have a small, cosy little local jewelery shop located on the steps from the centre towards...

Before I begin, it's worth noting that the apartment is a 10 minute walk from town, mainly up quite steep hills...(although not a problem with your bags as they will pick you up in town when you arrive and drop you off when you leave)

My girlfriend and I didn't mind the walk and we enjoyed our stay. The apartments are new, clean and have everything you could need. The huge balcony is perfect for chilling out in the evening and enjoying the great views out to sea and across the hills. Being away from town means that you don't hear any noise at night which is nice and peaceful.

The owner, Iris and her mum & sister are great. They really made our stay enjoyable by being so genuinely warm, friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The rooms upstairs seem to get a better view out to the sea and over the hills.
