Maria's Place
Ranked #31 of 38 Korcula Island B&B and Inns
Reviewed 19 July 2013

Anyone visiting captivating Korcula Town should check out Maria's Place as an accommodation. We stayed for two nights in early July and rented three rooms as we were traveling with two other couples. Maria was very helpful in all aspects of our stay, including serving us a beer as we worked out our lodging payment and washing and pressing my wife's pants after she spilled coffee on them! She could not have been a more gracious hostess. The rooms were comfortable and very clean and the location put us within a five minute walk of everything in the Old Town including numerous restaurants on the inner streets and those overlooking the water. It takes some effort to carry bags up the "Street of Steps" but the effort is well worth the trip. Our three rooms varied slightly in size but all had air conditioning and wi-fi and the price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend attending the town performance of The Moreska, a native sword dance, that is performed in the town's outdoor cinema----a five minute walk from Maria's Place.

In the heart of Korcula, just 5-minutes walk from the Dubrovnik ferry stop is Maria's Place. We were welcomed with open arms to a good size double room and made to feel very welcome. All very clean and comfy.
The only slight negative is that you are above a street with a restaurant so it can be noisy if you head to bed early but otherwise perfect. Wifi, fridge, air con, kettle and complimentary large bottle of water all supplied.
Very happy with our stay here and it's perfect to really feel part of Korcula

We were travelling across Croatia at the end of September / beginning of October and booking our accommodation very late. I booked Maria's Place the day before we ended up in Korcula and didn't really know what to expect but liked the look of the price.

I phoned the number provided on my booking to let Maria know that we would be arriving late as we were coming in from Hvar. Maria came and met us at the catamaran, which was definitely a bonus and a lovely touch. We were also provided with a cup of tea and some biscuits whilst we sorted out the money for the room.

We were only staying one night but wish we were there for longer or that Maria's place was available everywhere we went in Croatia. This was the cheapest room we stayed in but one of the best. The rooms are located right in the old town of Korcula, basically next to the Cathedral. To some people the rooms may be considered basic but it had everything you needed and with the rooms all being very clean and the fact that they had free wifi and air conditioning, this was a huge bonus and not what I would expect for the price we paid. The rooms are located up a flight of stairs but they are well lit and there is no need to walk too far in the day if you don't want to as you are right in the old town.

I recommend this place to everyone I can and if I ever go back to Korcula, I will definitely stay here again. Maria was so helpful and pleasant and the location was superb.

We put this accommodation very late and, consequently, got an excellent price. The location is fantastic – right in the heart of the old town, a short walk from a couple of excellent swimming spots and very close to the departure point of the Krilo Jet to Hvar. The room was extremely comfortable, light and airy with a small balcony overlooking one of the old town alleys. Maria was a bundle of energy and made us feel very much at home. She offered us beer, juice or water on arrival… a welcoming touch. Some of the prices quoted online look very high, around 4 times what we paid but, with the right deal, this would definitely be my choice again.

Stopped over in Korcula for one night on the way from Hvar to Dubrovnik. Maria's Place is right in the heart of the old town, a two minute walk from the cathedral. The room was clean, relatively spacious and had a big bathroom attached to it. We had booked a larger room with a seating area but Maria had given this away to a family who had arrived earlier the same day. We ended up staying in a smaller room at a lower rate which was fine for us but would have been a nuisance had we required the bigger room. The free wifi only worked in the common area and not in the room. Korcula has a pleasant old town but is quite compact and only kept us occupied for about half a day.

We had difficulty locating the place but the manager of a cafe near the cathedral called Maria for us who then came to collect us a few minutes later.

Marias place is on the 2nd floor (no lift) right at the heart of korcula's old town. It's run by a lovely lady called Maria.

There is Internet access and very strong A/C in the rooms.

We felt like we got what we paid for, though I guess there will be a premium for living in the centre of town, hence the average rating for price. Overall pretty good, definetly met our expectations.
