Across the Flower Square, in Zagreb’s high street Ilica 12 near Hotel Jagerhorn, there is a newly renovated 65 square meters apartment. It is located on the third floor of a residential building with an elevator, balcony and a quiet view of the forest. This functionally furnished apartment has two bedrooms (double beds 180×200 cm and 140×200 cm), a kitchen and a spacious living room with an additional bed/chaise longue for two persons. Every room has a satellite TV and a micro line. Air condition, minibar, Wi-fi and a media centre to check your emails, naturally, go without saying.

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 :)

nice. comfortable place with a great location. Enjoy our stay there
Alan is a great host. He provides a nice, comfortable and clean place. He thinks of many little things that you may need while you are away from home, and provide them, All these little touches that made our stay truely enjoyable.
This accommodation is in a great location, can easily walk to various interesting places, and is so close to the daily market that we thoroughly enjoy.
Will not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
Home away from home
Mum and I came to Zagreb to explore the Christmas markets, the best in Europe for the third year in a row, and we wanted somewhere convenient and comfortable to stay. The flower apartments went above and beyond our expectations.
From the time of booking to the time of departure, Alan, the host, was exceptionally helpful. He arranged a private pick-up from and to the airport (very reasonably priced) and was waiting for us at the apartment on arrival (he lives next door, which was a comfort to know should there have been any issues; there weren't!) He gave us a tour of the gorgeous apartment, explaining everything from the centralised lighting system to how the coffee machine works. I had seen in previous reviews that the apartment was missing a coffee machine, cooking utensils and fitted sheets, but Alan has clearly taken on board past feedback and they are all in place now. It is no exaggeration to say that Alan has truly thought of everything when it comes to the comfort and satisfaction of his guests. Not only were we greeted by a personalised welcome message on the lightbox on the wall, but there were also complimentary chocolates, slippers, a water cooler, fully stocked teas and coffees, milk and juice for our first morning as well as a selection of crackers and biscuits, a very reasonably priced mini bar (2 euros per item), chargers for every type of device, all the guides to Zagreb and even some Christmas decorations to truly make it feel like a home away from home.
The convenience of this apartment extends to its location; bang smack in the centre of everything! We walked everywhere (except once taking the funicular up the hill to the 'uptown') and never had to walk far to find something Christmassy going on. It's easy to see why Zagreb has won the best Christmas Market award 3 years in a row. The celebrations extend throughout the city, and I can't even begin to imagine how many fairy lights are used at this time of year. The only minor (and it was minor!) downside to the apartment being so central, was that the musical offerings which went on until around 1am on Saturday and Sunday mornings were definitely audible in the bedrooms. This didn't disturb us at all, but if you're sensitive to noise and are going around the same time, earplugs could be helpful.
Overall this was a fantastic stay and we will definitely be recommending Alan's apartment to everyone!
Great place, great location, great host, great experience!
We spent 5 days at this lovely apartment in the heart of Zagreb and couldn't be more pleased. Having been a 5-star host in the past, I have a high standard not only for the accommodations but for the overall experience. Alan knocked it out of the park.
As we have family in Zagreb, we have stayed at hotels and other apartments, but will be returning here. The apartment was spotless and Alan has thought of every amenity, including the eye glass wipes under the remote controls! The location is excellent--steps from everything. Yet the view out the windows is like overlooking a quiet park.
On arrival, we were met at the train station and escorted to the apartment and Alan arranged for reasonable transit to the airport on departure. All communications were timely and professional, but also felt as though a friend were welcoming you to their home.
Highly recommend Alan and Flower Square apartments---we will be back!
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.
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.
