Thanks Nicola for providing such a good location for us to visit Dubrovnik. Frankly speaking, the room is at the 2nd floor of an old building. It is a harsh job to climb up 40 steps with two luggages of 25kg each. However, most of the apartments near the old city wall is like this. 40 steps is comparatively less than some other apartments.
It is an old building that Nicola's family live in the 1st floor. Our room is large and clean with a large sofa and 4 big windows. No light is needed in the sunny day. These 4 windows helps us a lot as we can dry our clothes efficiently in these 3 days. Soap is available in the bathroom.
As the most important that we must go for this room is that it is at the entrance of the pile gate. It is so convenient that we can go to the city wall in 1 minute through the pile gate. We can take a bath and take a rest after walking for 5 hours under the sun. Also, the Lovrijenac fortress is just 5 minutes walk. Moreover, the pier near the fortress, now become a famous visiting point due to the popularity of the TV series: Game of Thrones, is 3 minutes walk only.
Generally speaking, though it is a bit hard to carry two 25kg luggages upstairs, the convenience of the location overrides this little defect completely.
