Nice place, great location!

This is a great apartment for a family trip to Old Town Dubrovnik. It is located a very short walk from the Pile Gate, where the airport bus drops off. Igor met us just inside the gate, helped us find the building, get our luggage upstairs, and get settled. He was very friendly and helpful, and stopped by later in our stay to see if we needed anything else, such as more towels (we didn't, there were plenty).
The apartment is up several flights of stairs, but if you're vacationing in Dubrovnik you're probably prepared to walk and climb stairs. It's a neat old building right off the main pedestrian street, and the apartment itself has more room than I expected. The master bedroom, especially, was quite large. We put our two kids in the smaller second bedroom/dining room, and Igor had a crib set up for us when we arrived. We could close the door to the kids' room, and then the door to the master bedroom, and stay up & watch TV (more English channels than we have in Kyiv) and drink some tasty Croatian wine without disturbing the kids.
The living room/kitchen was small but definitely big enough for basics. We put milk and water in the mini-fridge, and used the kettle to make instant coffee. There was a two-burner stove and a full set of dishes, but we didn't use that because there were so many nice restaurants. The included breakfast vouchers were at a very cute cafe just around the corner, and we went there every morning. The bathroom was spotless and everything worked well. There was a little heater over the bathroom door that took the chill out of the air in the morning.
My only caution is that if you're not used to urban living you might find it loud at night. The windows are traditional with glass outer windows that swing open and wooden shutters inside. The shutters completely block out all light, which is great for sleeping in, but the glass windows aren't well sealed so all the late-night cafe sounds and early-morning handcart deliveries are quite loud. But it didn't wake the kids up.
If we go back to Dubrovnik, we'll defintiely stay here again!
