“Inside good. Exterior shocking. Location good.”
Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

The interior of the place was as described and as shown in the photographs. It was neat, clean and comfortable. Unfortunately the same cannot be said of anything outside of the apartment. The walkway leading to the apartment is nothing less than shocking. The neighbour does not have a kitchen and does her dishes in the passage next to the front door of the apartment!

The location is great. Tkalciceva street is in the heart of the old town, where everyone hangs out - day and night. Not good for a peaceful night as the noise continued till about 4h00 in the mornings. If however you close the windows and put the aircon you can sleep well..

Dear!
I do not own the whole building so can do as much as I can about the exterior. But to let you know we have done some renovation to make it more beautiful for our guest.
All the best,
Barbara

“Optimal Location in Zagreb”
Reviewed 7 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

I had initially been hesitant about staying in a vacation rental rather than in a hotel, but I had a good experience here.

Barbara was able to cope with my last-minute reservation, and the apartment was cute. It is a renovated part of an old building on the café- & walk-street, convenient to a street that permits cars (so it is easy to reach by taxi). It is on the second (American) [first European] floor and at the quieter end of the street—with windows closed you could still hear some street conversation, but I had no difficulty sleeping any of the three nights that I was there.

Apt. has instant coffee, tea, and sugar in stock, but even coming into Zagreb on the 8PM (& slightly delayed) train from Budapest we were able to arrive at the apartment, check in with Barbara, and get to the well-stocked grocery story about a block away before it closed & so buy things for breakfast. Apt. stocked with utensils, plates, pans, and small appliances in the kitchen, so cooking there is easily possible, but we just made breakfast there and relied on the many excellent nearby cafés for our other meals.

Because smoking is apparently O.K., and I am an adamant non-smoker, I had been worried before I arrived that the apartment might smell smoky but there was no hint at all of smoke on the curtains and so forth. There was an air-freshener that I disliked but we put it in a plastic bag for the duration of our stay and that worked out fine.

The place was clean and its location really couldn’t be better, across from stairway to upper town and with many shops and cafés within blocks. Great bath, washing machine was not functioning but I was able to do some hand-washing of clothing and to dry it on an indoor drying rack. Proprietor was very friendly and checked in (by email) during our stay to make sure all ok—she was prompt and helpful in person at beginning and end of our stay.

I agree with previous reviewers that photos of the interior represent apartment accurately—the amount of sunshine and view are important to me so I took some views out the windows to show this. All in all, this stay made me want to try other vacation rentals and it certainly made me want to return to Zagreb!

“Great location,great host, great apartment”
Reviewed 26 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The apartment's location is ideal--at the end of the walking street Tkalciceva, so the action of the coffee shops and beer places is right there, and yet at night it is very quiet. A five minute walk and you are at the wonderful outdoor market Dolac. if you want a more traditional grocery store , the Mercator in the Kaptol shopping center is five minutes in the other direction. The walk to the main square Jelacic is also five minutes and from there you can catch trams to the museums or anywhere. If you take the stairs up opposite the apartment you are in the upper town and its sights. Barbara is a lovely and gracious host who responds quickly to any questions and who welcomed us with thoughtful touches. Her English is excellent, so communication was easy. The apartment is spacious, clean, and has lovely light from the windows (where you can watch the street) . The kitchen is extremely well stocked, and the decor feels homey in the best way. We would stay again and recommend it highly.

“Best location & Very comfortable stay”
Reviewed 22 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Me and my boyfriend took short trip for my birthday to Zagreb.
The location was just perfect. We were right at the street of the center of all cafe, bars, restaruants.
We were on 2nd floor of the street (the street is blokced for cars so just perfect start of the walking through all these cafes and places.)
We went out and enjoyed little shops, restaruants and bars.
The owner was very friendly and recommanded places and made sure we are comfortable.
The place looked exactly like photo so no surprise there. Kitchen and bathrooms were all good as well. Clean and upkept.
Best place if you are looking for place where you just walk out the door and have everything right there.
