Apartment has 2 bedrooms, kitchen and full bathroom. The room has 2 beds, sofa and one bathroom. All accommodation units are fully equipped
We were very happy during our stay here, but it really depends on what you're after. If you want 5 star luxury, then it's doubtful you're even searching this site, but if you're after value for money, then you're onto a winner.
We have recently come back from a 6 week trip to Europe and while both of us earn reasonable money, a 6 week trip is always going to be expensive and one of the biggest costs is accommodation. So we looked for location/medium price hotels and discovered this on TravellersPoint.
On arrival by bus from the airport, we were delivered outside of the old town walls and made our way through THRONGS of tourists. It was like being in an ant hill. Thousands of people walking into and out of the walled city.
But Old Dubrovnik is only a few kms squared, so any destination was going to be within easy reach. Or so we thought and something for everyone to consider. There are a LOT of stairs that lead to most accommodation. So if you are travelling with the kitchen sink, know that you will have to lug it up a flight or 5 before you get to your destination.
We were lucky and only had two flights of stairs to contend with. We'd received no information from Traveller's Point about how to make contact with the owner of the apartment and had to just 'wing it'. Despite that, we had a very easy introduction. Having ascended our first flight of approximately 20 steps, we paused for breath along an area that was littered with restaurants. About 2 minutes into our reprieve, a waiter from the closest restaurant enquired about whether were staying at House Tereza, and when we confirmed, he said he had the keys. So that's the only thing I would suggest confirming before arrival. Who and where to meet the key holder.
Despite our oversight on that part, we made our way up two more flights of stairs and discovered our flat. It was a comfortable, basic place with two single beds pushed together to make a double. There was a modern bathroom and kitchen, and it was all and more than we had expected.
We had read from another traveller, that staying in the old town can bring a lot of noise in the evening and that is certainly true.
We were there JUST out of off season (early Sept) and the noise coming from the restaurants just 20m away did keep us awake until about midnight or 1am... to be honest, I'm not sure the exact time, as I did fall asleep. So if you are a light sleeper, I would suggest you don't sleep in the Old Town, or if you do, head to the outer street.
House Tereza is very conveniently located, but then again, everything in Dubrovnik is conveniently located. Although with only 1.5 flights of stairs to contend with, with luggage, House Tereza was a godsend. I did see some poor folks pulling heavy suitcases up 4 or 5 flights of stairs to get to their accommodation, so check a Google Map before you commit.
Tereza knocked on our penultimate day to say hello and discuss payment. All went smoothly.
House Tereza is not luxury accommodation, but it is clean and well located and well priced.
I have no reservations in recommending this accommodation.

A great location in the Old Town, just off the main street - you can't really beat it!
A little small, but it's not like you'll be spending much time there!
Flexible landlord with regards to checking in and out times also which was a bonus.

The location is perfect and the room was big and clean but not very new and the woman not very friendly.
Nice hostess and a truly excellent central location. The room is designed in a quirky and cosy way and is clean and comfortable. There are, however, two drawbacks, it is very noisy at night, the bars underneath seemed to be open and noisy until about 3.30 a.m. also there is a really bad smell of something like drains in the ground floor room. Having said this, having spoken to people staying in other similar rooms in the area, this may just be a general problem in the Old Town and not specific to this room.

House Tereza is in the most perfect of locations, a 30 second walk down the steps to the main "placa stradan" in the old town and on the main restaurant row "prijeko". One tiny drawback is that on some occasions loud noises from nearby bars can spill in through the windows on a hot night, along with drunken ramblers in the small hours of the morning, but this did not trouble us. The owner was lovely and helpful and advised us of a few local places to eat and drink.
The room itself was above and beyond what we expected with a lovely ensuite shower room, along with a comfortable lounging area (we hired the double room), with lots of natural light from the cuby hole windows. I would highly recommend staying in the old town (anywhere within the walls will suffice) as if you don't you will honestly regret it when you get there.
