Great apartment and Perfect Location!!
Reviewed 11 October, 2021
Me and my husband stayed at Orka Apartments for 3 nights visited end of September 2021.
Pros: PERFECT LOCATION, very nice area in Lapad. Near main bus station, walkable distance to market, bakery, bus stops, beaches, beach walk trail (a must do!), near Lapad promenade with lots of restaurants. We walked once from the apartment to Old Town took us 30-35 mins. It is a quiet neighborhood compared to staying in Old Town. The host Anamarija is very hospitable and can easily be contacted via Whatsapp, answers your questions, and made recommendations. They have their own restaurant and outdoor patio where you can have beer or coffee and just hang out by the marina. The apartment was clean, with enough space for us. It has the basic things you need. They have a nice pool if you want to go for a swim.
Cons: WiFi was weak or spotty but it didn't really matter to us because we bought an international data plan from our provider. At the time, there was construction entering into the neighborhood so the road was closed off at certain times of the day. So the taxi/uber would have to drop you off and you have to walk to the apartment, but this shouldn't be a problem it's only a short walk maybe less than 5 mins.
Overall, It is a great accommodation, it is clean and has the basic things you need. We were very happy we chose Orka! I would recommend this place if you want to be far (but close) from the touristy areas like a local vibe feel.
Great basic accommodation, easy access into old town

We stayed here at the start of September, in a studio apartment in the old house towards the back. No views and basic room, however everything we needed for the holiday. Host was very friendly, and the pool area was great with sun all day. The area is so handy - few restaurants on the road nearby, short walk to the main strip or short bus into the old town. Would definitely recommend.

Terrible at writing reviews which is why it is very late however upon seeing few reviews thought I’d leave it now. Great location and great hosts. Couldn’t complain about one thing and would recommend. I hope to return to Dubrovnik and would look to book here first.
Perfect location & apartment

A very nice location, right at the water’s edge overlooking the marina. Packed with restaurants & bars nearby as well as a supermarket & pharmacy. Delicious dinner at the rooftop restaurant, with a nice discount for guests. A super friendly, family run place who were very helpful. The renovated rooms near the pool are larger & more modern. Would definetly stay again.
Absolutely amazing place 😍

Absolutely amazing place! It’s a lovely family running business! Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful! We would definitely come back 😍
Location was just perfect! 4min walk to the nearest bus stop and then only around 10 min ride to the Old Town Dubrovnik, tickets are only around 14 kuna one way. Each ticket is valid for an hour.
Good choice of local restaurants all around, I would highly recommend Green Garden with great choice of burgers and lovely local beer 😁 for breakfast we used to go to Marina Frapa which is just across from the Orka Apartments, lovely fresh orange juice and toast was a great start for the day!
The nearest supermarket is just 10 min walk and offers fresh bakery plus it’s open till 10pm!
The nearest beach is around 20 min walk but if you ask the locals they will show you shorter path!
Pool area very clean, fresh towels and you can order drinks from the bar,
The best part was obviously jacuzzi! 😍
Apartments are clean and towels are changed on request,
Overall great value for money! Highly recommend due to its location and great amenities!
