How to Get There
Just spent three nights at these superbly located apartments.
Wonderful base, right off Main Street in the old town and bonus of no steps to struggle with cases through the streets. Note, taxi can drop you at main gates, but not right outside.
Lovely welcome gift also left by hosts.
Air con a must and very efficient. We stayed on 2nd floor, no lift but we were kindly helped with luggage.
Lovely decor, comfortable bed, power shower and smart tv was an added bonus!
Kitchen is equipped with basics, but everything is on the doorstep anyway, so we only had breakfast in.
Only thing missing is 2 beach towels. Might be worth taking for escaping the sweltering heat and tourists if you fancy hopping across to the islands as we did.
The DBA is aptly described as “boutique” - it is evident that care and craft have gone into the décor of the apartment, however due to some unique features, full & proper use of the apartment is difficult. Also some of the advertising info is quite misleading - When booking the Petilovrijenci apartment, the website indicates 592square ft/ 55sqm with city views. The area available to the guest behind closed doors is well actually less than 45 sqm but this would not be an issue if all else were as promoted - Our view was of the wall & paving of Petilovrijenci St and whilst a view through the window into a narrow closed-in street might pass for city views to some, this description is misleading. When booking the Petilovrijenci apartment the confirmation displays a photograph of a different larger apartment.
No advice was provided on how to access the apartment for visitors who have difficulty with long steep flights of stairs, or for visitors with large suitcases or for visitors arriving by car. It could be as simple as “Drop your passengers & baggage at the Pile Gate or if on foot - use Pile Gate entry directly onto the main street".
Centrally located to cafes, restaurants, walking tours & boat cruises. The atmosphere is cosy & welcoming with a jar of cherry liqueur - a nice touch.
Whilst there is a key pad on the street entry for self check-in, it was faulty & we were unable to open the door until someone arrived later & although she too was unable to open the door using the key pad –she had a key & let us in. Note - The contact number provided with the hotel booking confirmation is not the correct contact number making matters worse.
There are various appliances located in the kitchen - great - but none have access to a power point in the kitchen where they should be used. To use an appliance requires an extension lead, or moving the appliance to a power point in the living area. There is a coffee machine but only 4 pods & no milk provided. You could buy milk & coffee pods but you would need a supermarket. and there are none in the old town.
The WC bowl is located inside the shower recess, behind the screen in the wet area - showering leaves a wet, slippery floor (& wet toilet paper) for anyone who uses the WC afterwards. The WC bowl is located hard up against the wall requiring users to sit sideways. Using the WC at night requires turning on the bedroom light to step over the raised lip into the wet area to avoid tripping. The shower’s hot water is operated by a switch alongside the lighting and fan switch making it too easy to turn the hot water power off with the light and fan leaving stone cold water available.
Of the eight hotels we stayed in between Malta, Austria, Croatia, Montenegro, Kosovo and Macedonia, the DBA was the 2nd most expensive but the 7th rated in comfort, quality/standard, amenities, parking access, and overall benefits.
The first thing I noticed when we arrived was how clean the apartment smelt.
We were greeted with biscuits, liqueur and lavender bags.
We were on the second floor with a four poster bed and a really quirky bathroom. Honestly the bathroom was the only reason this lost a star for me. There were a lot of maintenance jobs that needed doing. The fan made a horrendous noise when it started, the toilet roll holder was hanging off the wall and the shower taps came off in your hand.
All the things I've mentioned about the bathroom are small things that are easy to fix. You can have a great shower and the sink is like a carved out pebble.
The lounge area is also an added bonus for more space and you can make yourself a hot drink!
You have a lovely girl bringing you clean towels every day and you are so close to the main street of Stradum it's really easy to get everywhere.
