The apartment is in one of the corners of the palace that faces the port. The port itself is not a problem, but there is a bar close to it that plays high music during the summer until late hours. You cannot hear much from the room with the windows shut, but people with a light sleep may find it an issue.
Two other things that you will find in almost all places in Croatia:
- the building is not served by a lift - the Roman BC technology didn't get that far -, so you will have to climb some (maybe four) sets of stairs to get to your room;
- it is basically a rented apartment and not a hotel, so you have no handy full time reception, although the owner is always available by phone or email in case you need anything.
The owner did everything he could to help us with everything. He led me to a free parking instead of taking the paid (expensive) one, gave me the contact of a travel agency for boat tours, gave an overview of the city on a map and even gave us a bottle of wine and some cookies. One of the employees (Martina) was also very helpful and friendly, taking us to our room and showing everything on our way, from the budget-friendly supermarkets to the caper that grow on the palace walls :)
The room is very spacious and the view is lovely, directly to the belltower of the main church. The location is perfect, since it is inside the palace but not on a very busy area.
No problems with the TV, air conditioning, WiFi or whatsoever. They don't use a boiler to heat the water of the shower, so you don't have to wait the boiler to refil between showers (as you would at almost all rooms in Croatia).
Another really rare thing in Croatia: they accept credit card as payment. Martina took a wireless card machine to the room :)
We asked for an additional hour after check-out time to avoid waiting in the airport and they helpfully let us stay longer with no extra charge.
