In central position in lovely old town of Zadar. Pedestrian zone in the center of the town, quiet and clean. Balcony with a view. Linen and towels provided. New comfortable beds and mattresses. Unlimited Wi-fi if you wish to use your laptop or you can use ours occasionally to stay in touch and keep informed. You can choose culture, sun bathing and swimming, bird watching during your stay. Four national parks in short driving distance from the town: mountains, islands, lakes or waterfalls.

For OPTIONAL EXCURSIONS see rental rates information below.
PLEASE NOTE: Zadar is fully functioning Mediterranean town with all amenities and beautiful surroundings so you can be entertained in the town and escape to uncrowded beaches and places during the day if you wish to do so.
IMPORTANT WARNING: Many places advertised are in remote location, with no amenities around and still with a lot of tourists and crowded in the high season. Out of season very, very boring and after a day you will have to come to town where is quiet but a lot of good quality choices for eating out, entertainment, beaches, shops and transport. You have to calculate the cost of local transport, taxis or car hire if you want to see something and do something. They are advertised as Zadar but they are not, it takes an hour or more to reach the town and there is no air con in the buses and it is hot and crowded in the high season. You will pay for the local transport as much as for accommodation and you will have to use taxi in the evening.
If they say it is 10 minutes from the town don’t believe it if you don't have a pair of wings. It is not a city bus, it goes every 2 hours, it is not reliable and you have to wait for it and walk to and from the station and on +30 C heat (from the early morning) it is not a pleasant experience. To waste 2 hours of your valuable holiday time and energy is simply a bad holiday experience. We talked to the people who made a mistake staying out of the town but it was too late to change it and that is why we would like you to choose wisely.
STAY IN THE CENTER OF THE BEAUTIFUL TOWN, HAVE FUN AND LONG WALKS BY THE SEA. THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS: ENTERTAINMENT AND PEACE, IT IS YOUR CHOICE.

I'd really recommend Zadar as a place to visit: there is enough to do around the area for several days (although the old town itself could be done in a weekend.) There are beaches just outside... more
Any time. It was pleasure to show you around and there is more to discover and places to enjoy.

This bed and breakfast is in a fantastic location in the centre of the old town of Zadar. We found it clean and comfortable. Goran and Vlatka offer a very personalised service and have a wealth of local knowledge. They took us on some excellent and reasonably priced tours which we wouldn't have experienced on our own. Their English is excellent and their hospitality went beyond what would usually be expected from a bed and breakfast (Vlatka cooked us local delicacies! Goran picked us up a week later to take us back to the airport.)
It was pleasure to meet these nice guests and to show them just a bit of beautiful Croatia. It is always nice if the guests accept our hospitality and advice and enjoy their holiday and realise that the service we offer is in many ways special. We are also very flexible and can adjust to most of wishes and abilities. It was overall 5 star review and experience for all of us.

The property does not have weekend tariffs.
NB: Prices may be subject to change at the advertiser's discretion.
We take guests for 3 nights, occasionally for 2 nights (please feel free to make an enquiry) if it fits with other bookings and at a slightly higher rate which reflects our cost of preparing the room. Our expenses are the same for guests staying for a week or two days therefore difference in price. By taking shorter bookings we may lose longer bookings. This is a private accommodation and not a hotel or a hostel. They can charge more for one night stay and have permanent staff so I hope you understand why we cannot take one night bookings for people passing by on the way to and from the airport. Zadar and the area are beautiful and deserve exploring for a couple of days at least and we are here to give advice and help as well.
Nightly rate in Euros (or in any currency as long as it is equivalent to the price in Euros) per night for two people including continental breakfast tea or coffee and transfers from Zadar airport on arrival and to Zadar airport on departure (50 E value if you use taxi). Weekly rate include discount. Ideal for 2 people. Early and late in the season single guests welcome, 2 weeks staying additional 5% discount. Prices do not include local city tax of 7 HRK (less than 1 Euro) per day per person, payable directly to the local council. This is necessary for insurance purposes and your own safety, security and piece of mind. This is obligatory to all guests in hotels, camps or private accommodation. Use of air conditioning during the night included in the high season (July and August), the rest of the year the prices are lower and don't include air conditioning. However on paying additional fee of €5 per night you can use it if you wish. This is only for the night use and not for 24 hours use (presumably you will spend time outside and on the beach so you would not need it during the daytime). It is widely known that we do not produce energy ourselves and that we have to pay for it same as all other people so the charge is normal and the rate is usual in this parts of the world.
PLEASE NOTE-PRICE: Accommodation is priced very correctly as we know the market. The rates are higher that the hostels but you will get much more for not much more money, good quality, adjustable, made to order real oak beds and proper (not cheap tourist sort) mattresses , breakfast, transfer, privacy, good advice and personal help if you need it and location close to the sea, entertainment, restaurants, public transport. It is also much, much better value than expensive hotel Bastion just 100m away or even average hotel Porto in the industrial suburbs of the town hard to find and far from the center and in the heath not easy to walk or nerby hostel Forum which charges €29 per person in 4 bed dormitory room and shared toilet with 8 people from 2 rooms without transfers or nice breakfast.. We do not pay or receive any commission from anybody and recommend only what we know and hear from our guests. We are trying to keep guests happy and for what we offer the rates are more than reasonable especially if you calculate all extras we add for free.

Availability calendar is not always marked correctly and always e-mail or call for up to date availability. As you can see from the reviews (not all guests leave them althought they enyoj staying with us) we are busy and sometimes dates are filling quickly in the peak times. Sometimes there is more properties availabile so it is difficult to mark the calendar correctly and it is not possibile to remove it. When we mark it as full then unfortunately most likely there is no availability at all. There is a posibility of staying in the town and out of the town for a day or two (on arrival or departure) if availability don't match exactly. We handle all the transfers all around and it is nice change, worked well so far.
