TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Ivka Dubrovnik
Hotel Ivka was a lovely hotel, more modern than most we'd stayed at, but it was further from the heart of the action, requiring a short bus trip to get to and from the old town comfortably. A short walk away in one direction was the marina where the tour boats left from and in the other direction, a pedestrian walkway with hotels and restaurants led to a bay with a great swimming beach and coastal walkway with swimming spots, hotels, bars and restaurants along it.
The room was a good size with a balcony overlooking the front of the hotel. The WIFI in our room wasn't strong so we ended up in the lobby doing emails, etc. Others in our group didn't have this problem so might have just been an anomaly.

... what we would have done if she hadn't been there, but since she was, she let us into the apartment. It was really nice. My parents had their own bedroom. I had mine with a spare bed. The living room was large and spacious. The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes. And the AC worked well. Really, after climbing the hill, the AC was the most important thing.
Once we got settled though, we headed out for lunch and to hike ...
... beer; they are worse than the Brits! To add I did not join them! Anyway it is hot, hot, hot! By 10am it was already 31 degrees. I can't imagine how stiffling it must be in the height of summer!
After taking the cablecar down and heading back into the old city, it was time to go to the Old Port and take a boat across to the island of Lokrum; this is the nearest island to Dubrovnik.
The journey across to Lokrum took about 10-15 minutes ...
... a huge lunch at 12:30 PM. We then went back inside old town and walked 90% of the wall again including a section we hadn't done on Saturday. Since our tour bus went back to the hotel at 2:30 we caught the local bus to the hotel after walking the wall. Got back to the hotel at 3:30. We leave at 5:30 to go to a restaurant where they make olive oil. We arrived at the house/farm of the Dubelj family about 30 minutes from the hotel ...
