Everything was perfect. Nice appartment. Doni was so nice she cooked some cakes for us. Her garden his beautiful. You can see the oranges ripening... The place is quiet. Very good experience!
Supercozy apartment with a beautiful view and a neat table for two just outside the entrance, almost like a balcony! Everything was great and out host was very kind, we have nothing to complain about!
I find it very difficult to write review about Doni's listing as both my partner and i have very mixed feelings about the experience. i chose Doni's place (instead of his neighbour's actually) based on very warm reviews written by other guests -even though the apartment looks a bit old fashioned on photos. We have been travelling around Europe before we arrived to Hvar so we had heavy rucksacks, we enquired about public transport options (it's around 2km from ferry terminal to Doni's) and Doni suggested that his wife, Matylda could pick us up by car. When we arrived to the island Matylda was already looking out for us and we followed her to the car. The journey was awkward - the driver (possibly Doni, didnt introduce himself) was clearly unhappy about coming to pick us up and they spoke between themselves in low voices all the way, we felt tension. Doni (?) didnt engage with us (even thou he speaks english) and only when Matylda offered us a candy (and i asked what it was) he said 'poison'. Very unpleasant. During our stay we didnt see that man again. First impression was that neither of us felt welcome in their home and we felt really awkward and disappointed, regretting booking Doni's and not the other place. Matylda, unfortunately, doesnt speak English and we felt she was a bit stressed to approach us. We appreciated that she offered us cake thou. The apartment itself was a bit of a let down too. It is dated, but also a bit ran down and not taken care of- shower rail broken, hand towel rail falling off the wall. Smoking is allowed and it is noticeable for non smokers, also no proper courtains in main part of the apartment. Listing description states there is 1 bed, in fact there are two single beds put together -gap between mattresses because of wooden frames. On the positive side the location is good- quiet, residential, 10 mins walk to marina and 20 to ferry. terminal. Overall based on previous rewievs we expected a better experience
Response from Đoni:
Dear Ella and Beata I'm sorry about your negative feelings in our apartment. The pictures show that the apartment is in a high attic like a bed We all behave the same to all the guests and we want them to meet, obviously it was not enough for you. Technical things can be solved, and your feeling unfortunately can not. The guest is always right. We wish you good luck (URL HIDDEN) Đoni and Matilda.
We had a great time in Stari grad staying in Matilda's apartment. We stayed for 4 nights. She gave us cake/dessert twice during our stay. She also did our laundry. She is a super nice lady and the place itself is very clean and well taken care off. I highly recommend staying here.
Fantastic time in Stari Grad with Doni and Matilda. The town is a 5 min walk. Great food and beautiful rocky beaches where you can secluded little spots for an afternoon swim. We would highly recommend it!
