About Alan Bahorić
Welcome, I'm Alan Bahoric from Zagreb, Croatia, owner of the Flower Square Apartment Ilica. My friends and I run 2 cosy apartments in the very heart of the city, the pedestrian zone around Flower Square and the main street Ilica. I hope you will have pleasant stay in Zagreb, an excellent entry point to discover Croatia, a unique blend of old school Mitteleuropa, Mediterranean and the Balkans. I designed my apartment with attention to details, modern accessories and flavour of vintage spirit. I’m a public relations professional and I run my own consultancy which is specialised in corporate communications, event management, and PR in tourism. I like to travel and sail, adore photography, lounge & jazz music, so I guess this apartment is pretty much reflection of myself.
What makes this Apartment unique
Acting as a public relations manager I had the opportunity to work with biggest hotel companies in Croatia learning about important tips & tricks in the hospitality industry, new trends and how sharing economy has changed the way we travel and choose our destinations. The next big thing were my own experiences as a traveler and guest. Blending experiences and valuable knowledge, I have tried to design a living space in which my guests will feel comfortable and safe as they were staying in their own homes. Welcome aboard :)

Absolutely wonderful hospitality
Alan`s apartment is perfect. Spotlessly clean. Everything you need and more is provided. His attention to detail is amazing. He arranged for our pick up at the airport and was at the apartment to meet us when we arrived. The apartment is in the heart of Old Town, so you just walk out the door to explore. Many wonderful shops, restaurants, and attractions nearby. My husband was ill and needed medical attention, so Alan made the appointment and arranged for a for a freind to meet us and go to the clinic. His friend waited for us and picked up the prescription. By the way, a 30 minute doctor`s office visit in Zagreb was $22 which speaks volumes about American health care. If you're visiting Zagreb, make sure you check to see if Alan`s apartment is available.
Best VRBO Ever
This was probably the best VRBO property I or my husband have ever stayed in. Everything was taken care of-there wasn’t one thing I could think of that we were missing and the apartment itself is beautiful. The location is amazing-we walked to everything. Alan was so nice and waited up to greet us even though our flight was in the evening and we got a little lost finding the place at first. He answered all of our questions and was always available if we needed him. I am so grateful that this apartment was our first stop-it really set a great tone for the rest of our time in Croatia.
Nice Apartment In The Heart of Zagreb
Apartment was as described. We had a wonderful time.
Beautiful, bright, spacious, comfortable, spotless, great location and very quite. 5 Stars
Excellent correspondence with Alan from the first email with lots of helpful information. Apartment was ready when we arrived early and we were greeted by Stephan who gave us wonderful advice about the neighbourhood and transportation and even walked with us to show us around the neighbourhood. The apartment which is just beautiful is in a great location and you can walk to all the main attractions in minutes to the City, squares, parks, restaurants, pubs, cafes, grocery stores, transportation. As we were celebrating our 60th birthdays Alan was so thoughtful to leave us a delicious chocolate cake and a bottle of wine. The apartment is up a small alleyway from the Main Street and backs onto a lovely park so there was no outside noise and the beds were so comfortable - best sleep on our 3 week holiday!! I would highly recommend this lovely apartment. Thank you so much Alan.
Beautiful Apartment in the Heart of Zagreb
Apartment Ilica is a lovely, spacious apartment filled with beautiful antiques, art and vintage charm. The location is superb -- right in the middle of everything you'd want to see and do in Zagreb, yet situated up a secluded alleyway that means quiet in the evenings and early mornings. We had coffee on our lovely balcony each morning, overlooking a green, tree-filled park. Our wonderful host Alan provided everything we could possibly need -- including adapters for all our electronic devices! We truly felt we had our very own "home" in Zagreb -- Apartment Ilica was a highlight of our trip. Needless to say, we WILL be back. Thank you Alan for a very memorable stay!

Central, Safe and Quiet
First off, the host speaks very good English and travels. He's educated, of good character, and has an instruction book on how his appliances operate (like the washer/dryer combo which is often unfamiliar territory for most Canadians). There are three working tvs with several English-speaking stations, a charming Juliet balcony that I actually used on a daily basis, great wi-fi reception (even on the balcony), and a bathroom in which you can comfortably move around. The apt is very clean and tastefully decorated. He has stocked his two bedroom rental with toiletries and useful tourism hand-outs and reference books. He lives super close and is sincere in his offer of assistance. (For instance, I suffered a medical emergency on my second day. He came from work to check on me and lent me taxi fare!) l would stay here again without hesitation.
I missed creature comforts which must strike southern Europeans as peculiar: bed sheets (flat and fitted) with pillows; a coffee maker, such as a Melita and basic cooking implements. But, to be fair on the latter, the apartment is surrounded with cafes, restaurants and pubs, and it is in Croatians' cultural practice to dine out on a daily basis. Also, black-out curtains or shutters in the master would've been much appreciated.
The building is close to corner stores, though he very thoughtfully stocks his fridge with skim milk, oj, mineral water and beer. The trams are right ouside. The taxi referral he provides is dependable.
Zagreb is easy to get around, most under thirty-five speak functional English and everyone is really nice. Medical and dental tourism is growing. I had a great time here, largely in part because our rental was a fortunate choice. A big thank you to my host!
Flower Square Apartment Ilica is located in the centre of Zagreb, around Petar Preradović Square, colloquially known as Flower Square because of the many flower shops. All the important city landmarks are just a 10-minute walk away, and next to the tram, there is a taxi station nearby. The city centre’s pedestrian zone is a darling shopping destination, and there is also a supermarket in the very square, located within the Cvjetni shopping mall.
It is good to know that there are two pharmacies in the close proximity of Flower Square Apartment Ilica.
Flower Square Apartments Ilica, located in the pedestrian zone and do not have parking facilities, but we can recommend several public garages in the centre of Zagreb, which are also the safest place to park. For shorter stays we recommend the Cvjetni mall’s garage or garage in Ilica 45. For longer stays there is a much more affordable Tuškanac garage, only a 10-minute walk away. Parking fee is 10 Euro per day.
