“Beautiful Apartment, Wonderful, Kind Host, Excellent Location”
Reviewed 27 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

person found this review helpful

My boyfriend and I stayed here back in August (my greatest apologies for Kornelija and her mother for not writing this review until now).

Upon arrival, we were greeted by Kornelija's mother (whose name escapes me! I'm so sorry!) who insisted we sit outside and then presented us with grapes, watermelon and cake! What a lovely welcome :) This level of hospitality continued throughout our stay. She wasn't intrusive in the slightest though, just made us feel very at home :)

The apartment itself is small, but ideal for a couple. It's essientially one room with an en-suite, but has everything you could possibly need. If there is something missing, Kornelija's mother goes through great lengths to find it for you! We cooked dinner in a couple of nights and ate it outside in the beautiful garden by candlelight.

The location was very ideal for us. Although a half hour walk or so to the old town (and you can catch a bus from right outside for pretty cheap), the apartment is located right on the harbour - which is where all the boats leave to explore other islands (Lopud, Lokrum etc, all of which I'd thoroughly reccomend doing!) and by a supermarket (ideal for when you want to cook at home).

Overall, I'd say this apartment was great value for money, and...book it! Both my boyfriend and I would happily stay here again if we were to return to Dubrovnik, as the welcome you get is simply beyond anything you could hope to find in any hotel.

“We had a wonderful stay in this charming studio”

person found this review helpful

It was a charming little place (great attention to details), that was amazingly well-organised, considering the limited space. The kitchen was equipped with everything one could possibly need (utensils, spices, olive oil and vinegar, sugar, coffee, tea, juice, etc), the bathroom had a hair-dryer, shampoo and soap, the wifi connection was fast and always working, the bed was very comfortable, air-con made the room nicely cool, and the tv had a few interesting channels :) Everything was perfectly clean. But the best was Kornelija's mum: a very welcoming, sweet lady who made our stay at this apartment really special. There were apple pies waiting for us when we arrived, another time she brought us home-made pancakes, and finally - grapes (and we only stayed there for four nights) :) I would definitely recommend this place to my friends, and I miss it already :)

“Best value for your buck- Wonderful Hostess”
Reviewed 11 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

My wife and I spent two weeks in Dubrovnik and we had an exquisite stay at the Kornelija apartments.
We had for a long time hesitated between the old town and this location.
We are so glad we decided on Kornelija: the old city is way too crowded too overwhelming too noisy...
The location is really the best it is very close to supermarkets, the food and fish market in Gruz, to the harbor...
By bus Old town is about 7 minutes,Lapad about the same and Babin Kuk about 12.
The bus stops almost right in front of the house.
what made this place unforgettable is the hostess Nike, who is one of the nicest persons we have ever met. Even though she speaks very little English, we got to understand each other.
Nikke would bring us food, little deserts she would have prepared and always had the right and kind gesture.
This makes for personalized service you don't get at a hotel and even in some B&B.
The studio had everything we wished for we cooked a lot since restaurants are so expensive in Dubrovnik and quality is below average.
Yes, it could have been bigger but it was really fine this way.
Nike provided us with beach towels, mats and even a beach umbrella.
We had one cleaning during our stay but had change of towels whenever we asked.

The only drawback of the unit was the traffic noise from the street, I had to sleep with earplugs.
But if we ever go back, we would stay with our newfound friend Nike without any hesitation.
On top of it the value is incredible.

“Clean accommodation in convenient location”
Reviewed 20 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We stayed at Kornelija during our honeymoon in Dubrovnik. We arrived late in the evening and Kornelija was nice enough to arrange for a taxi to the apartment. The apartment was very clean but unfortunately smaller than I had hoped. With both of our suitcases open on the floor we didn't have much room to walk around. Although small, you had everything you needed - kitchen supplies, A/C, table, blow-dryer etc. Our host was Nike (mother of Kornelija) who was very nice and even though she had limited command of English, was able to communicate with us quite well! She was very sweet and even had cake, chocolates and champagne upon our arrival since it was our honeymoon.

The price is fabulous considering how close you are to everything. You are in fact in the middle of everything and the bus system is so convenient there that you really are not more than 10 minutes from anything - Old town, Uvala Lapad, Copacabana, Banje Beach etc. The walk to the old town is quite nice and takes about 25 minutes.

The only thing I would want (other than a bigger room) is for the room to be cleaned more often.
