The Oldtimer – down town place with a story to tell
Be in the heart of Zagreb and experience the city as it used to be!
Our guests are offered not only the spirit of old times with modern confort, but also the opportunity to step out into the heart of the City and its attractions, having a quiet sleep and intimacy during their stay.
The Oldtimer is 140 m2 newly decorated 4 bedroom apartment situated in the very centre of the city, in the pedestrian area of Ilica street, just a few steps from the main square and in the immediate vicinity of all the most important city landmarks: the Upper Town, the Cathedral, Green Market Dolac, Tkalčićeva street with its traditional shops, restaurants and cafes, Park Zrinjevac, Flowers Square and its shopping mall…
Hidden from the noise of main street, our apartment is located on the first floor of a residential courtyard building with a vintage elevator and balconies. We have tried to add a personal touch by many authentic or handmade details which bring to life old times memories. We wanted to convey a positive energy and make our guests feel at home when they are home away whether as tourists or for business.
Our place is convenient for big families and larger groups and can accommodate up to 9 persons. We rent it also separately as two units, so it is equally suitable for smaller groups, couples or singles.
The place consists of two separate but interconnected units sharing one common entrance and anteroom from which each unit has its own entrance and keys. The interior of each unit has its own character.
The first one - called Goldy - can accommodate 3+1persons. It consists of one single bedroom (bed 120x200) and a double one equipped with a double bad (160x200), a big wardrobe, and a leaving area with TV and a pull out sofa for 2 persons. This unit has also a fully equipped kitchen with spacious dining area and access to balcony, a large antechamber and bathroom with shower and washing machine.
The second unit – called Rosy - offers accommodation for 4 + 1 persons in two connecting bedrooms. The first one is furnished with a Queen bad (150X200), sofa, and big library cabinet. The second one is huge and more like a studio, consisting of a sleeping area with a king size bad (180X200) and access to the balcony; a living area with TV and a pull out sofa for 2 persons, and a dining area connected to the small but fully equipped kitchen. There is also a spacious bathroom equipped with a bathtub.
The price includes all you may need when you are far from your home: wi-fi, linen, towels, toiletries, cleaning supplies, coffee, tea, sugar and basic spice like salt, pepper, olive oil and vinegar. We also provide our guests with city maps and brochures … and a basket of fresh fruit from Dolac Market for welcoming. We are pet friendly, but we will charge an extra cleaning fee for those guests who will stay with pets.
The Oldtimer is located in car-free zone where only residents with permit are allowed to drive, so we are not able to offerour guests a parking. We can recommend several public garages in the vicinity. However, on request and at their own risk, guests can use a private parking place in the courtyard but must be aware that they could be stopped by traffic warden or police. For the same reasons, taxi drivers are usually reluctant to enter the pedestrian zone and most probably will leave you at the corner of Gundulićeva Street and Ilica (100 meters from the apartment).
The location is one minute walk from the Main Square. From the Ban Jelacic Square remain on the right side of the Ilica Street and look for Foto Copy Studio (FotoTopić). When you see it, enter the courtyard and go straight to the back building. The apartment is located on the first floor to the left.
If you arrive from the airport by taxi, try to book Uber taxi since the only taxi company that is allowed to operate on the airport is monopolistic and their service can be expensive. Airport shuttle costs 30 HRK and takes you to the main bus station. You can also take a city bus which takes you to the Kvaternik Square.
From the main bus station or Kvaternik Square you can take a taxi (costs about 20-30 HRK) or Tram to the Ban Jelacic Square (number 6 from main bus station or number 11 and 12 form Kvaternik Square, costs 4 HRK).Walking takes about 20-30 min – walk towards the Ban Jelacic Square.
From the main train station: Taxi - costs about 20-30 HRK. Tram - number 6 or 13 to the Ban Jelacic Square (costs 10 HRK).Walking - takes about 10-15 min. Walk towards the Ban Jelacic Square.
