From 3 to18 juli me and my girlfriend went to Hvar, we stayed at Apartments Pape and because of the reception by the friendly owners we felt right at home! Tired from the trip we were shown to our room by the owners daughter. We wouldn't have to think about payment yet, we just left our passports with the owners until the moment we would pay.
The first thing we noticed was how clean the room was, white walls and clean sheets. the room was spacious and came with an enormous balcony, which looked out over the Hvar harbor in the distance, wonderful!
The beds are comfortable and the sheets are cleaned once every 4 days, the same goes for the towels.
Ivana (The owner) is super friendly and always has time for you (even though she's a very busy woman) Her husband (who doesn't speak any English) Is prepared to drive you to nearby sights. For example, we really wanted to go to Dubovica and without problems we were driven there (for a small fee)
The airco did it's job and brought some welcome cooling.
WiFi is included, you receive the login at arrival.
The centre of Hvar Town is in walking distance (10-15 mins.) but the apartment is located on a hill, so it could be a bit tricky for disabled people.
Although the overall experience was great, there are some (minor) cons. First of all was the stench coming from the drainage in the bathroom. Combined with the heat it sometimes was almost unbearable. Also the temperature control on the shower was a bit odd... (hot,cold, hot again etc)
All in all we had a wonderful time at Apartments Pape and if we visit Hvar again some day we'll surely return to this place!
