“Gastvrij, schoon, rustig. Prima vakantie!”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

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!

Room Tip: Wij vroegen bij boeking om zeezicht kamer, en volgens mij is dat de ruimste kamer met het grootste b...

Reviewed 24 August 2012

We were very happy with our apartment. Good size, clean, and with a kitchenette and small balcony. The owner is very friendly and helpful. The price is reasonable compared with a lot of accommodation in Hvar town. The main promenade in the town is about 10-15 minutes away, but this is a really nice walk along the waterfront, and there are some cafes and bars just five minutes away. In the opposite direction (about a 15 minute walk), there is a very nice pebble beach with lots of sun loungers and a couple of restaurants. It's very relaxing and we spend quite a lot of time there.

I would recommend this accommodation, except for people with walking difficulties as there are quite a few steps to tackle on the way back from the town (not an issue for us and we got used to it after a day or two). Good choice if you don't want to spend a fortune!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
In Hvar - the heart of the island, the pearl of Dalmatian islands, 10 minutes away from the center of the old city and five minutes on foot from the beach, there is a family house - Apartments Pape - with studios, apartments and rooms decorated in the Art Deco style. Mrs. Ivana Softić and her family will be pleased to meet you there. Apartments PAPE are located in a sunny quiet place with a view over the sea, old and new parts of the city and two magnificent fortresses. Around the house there are gardens, terraces, and there is a private parking in front of the house. Accommodation units are fully equipped and have air conditioning, satellite television and free Wi-Fi. Each apartment and each room is decorated in different warm colors (yellow, orange, green, blue, red...), and has its own name, telling you its unique story and making your stay comfortable with its charm. This charm lies in the combination of old - the view over the Medieval city - and new - modern interior, and shows you the present time in a picturesque way. In the front part of the house there is a terrace surrounded by beautiful flowers, where you can have breakfast or dinner by arrangement. Our basic guiding principle from the start of business is the pleasure of tourists. Having this in mind, we look forward to getting new experiences, challenges and moments in which we can together share and re-discover the magic beauty of this city. Share unforgettable moments with us and visit us this year. Discover Hvar. ... more   less
