Hi ihr da drausen... Also die Wohnung ist super. Man hat es nicht weit bis zum Zentrum. Tramhaltestelle ist auch nicht weit und Supermarkt sowie apotheke sind auch gleich um die Ecke. Die Wohnung selber war sauber. Hatte schnelles Internet und Pay TV in Englisch. Und selbst als wir Probleme hatten (der Trafo vom Internet ging nicht mehr) hat die Vermieterin sich gleich um das Problem gekümmrt. Auch sonst war sie immer ansprechbar und hat uns geholfen wo es nur ging.

Surprise surprise

  • 5 of 5

Surtout il ne faut pas s'arrêter à l'impression extérieure du bâtiment qui fait penser à une époque révolue. Dès que l'on rentre dans l'appartement c'est autre chose. Bien rénové, spacieux et confortable. Il est situé à 20 minutes à pied des villes haute et basse. L'accueil de Svet, y compris tout au long du processus de réservation, est impeccable. Si vous venez en voiture, il faut se garer au parjing public au bout de la rue. Le forfait est peu cher : 70 kunas pour 7 jours. Il est moins cher pour 7 jours que pour 3 jours.

Location à conseiller.

Spacious well-equipped apartment

  • 5 of 5

A lovely spacious apartment that is very comfortable and well equipped. Situated in an easy-going neighbourhood that isn't touristy, about 20 minute walk from the centre of the city and well-served by trams. Lots of shops within easy distance - bread, supermarket, open air fruit and veg market - and plenty of cafes and restaurants. Really helpful owner who gave us lots of tips about what to see and do in the city. We had a great stay!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is just the right distance from the city center: Located in a neighborhood, away from all the traffic and noise of the city center. Leaving the apartment, a tram line is just a few minutes walk whether turning left or right. Going to the city center is quick and cheap. On certain days, turning left from the front door also quickly takes you to a farmer's market.

The neighborhood is quiet because the street is only a block long, connecting busy main streets a hundred meters on either side of the apartment. The apartment is on the ground floor, with black-out shades to keep out sunlight and stray noise when used.

The apartment had a living/dining room of adequate size and a small but well equipped kitchen (except sadly it lacks a microwave). The clothes washer and the racks and clotheslines were handy. The dishwasher was small but worked well, and the wifi was fast enough. The bed was comfortable, as was the rest of the furniture.

Svet always quickly answered the questions we emailed her. She speaks English well. We enjoyed our conversation with her at the end of our stay.

The price, location, owner, and everything else about the apartment was just right. We'd stay there again.

Side note: If you arrive at the Zagreb airport needing a ride into the city, take the bus. The taxi drivers usually overcharge by a large amount, sometimes double. However, we never encountered any other problems anywhere, and everyone else was quite honest.

Fancy apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable, good kitchen with all needed facilities, clean and tidy. Bedroom with a view to the garden, very peaceful so you can have a good night's sleep. In the center of the city in a silent street. It is nice to have shops, green market, caffes, bistros within a few minutes from the apartment. Tram and taxi stations within a couple minutes which is very convenient if you don't want to use a car. I highly recommend this apartment.

Perfect location to explore Zagreb

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we felt so welcome. Not only did the owner Svet greet us with a huge smile, she also answered all our mundane questions regarding Zagreb. Svet was the ultimate tourist guide.

The apartment was very clean and extremely comfortable. We loved the location as we could walk to restaurants, galleries and tourist destinations.

I would definitely recommend the downtown apartment to anyone wanting to explore or just relax in Zagreb. It was such a wonderful experience!
