An amazing location in the Upper (old) Town located in a pedestrian area except for residents' cars (so very quiet other than church bells). Only a few minutes walk down to Ban Jelačić Square (main square). Room was extremely clean, comfortable and well equipped (Smeg bar fridge, kettle, cutlery and crockery). Comfortable bed and good water pressure! Walking distance to a great many historical sites but if you cannot manage the uphill trek, head down to the main square, turn right and walk about 250 metres and there's a funicular that will take you up and then it's a downhill stroll for the return. For great eats, turn left after leaving Rooms 17, then take the first left and you hit an area full of cafes and restaurants. Take the same direction (it's marked), particularly on a Saturday, and you will come to the Dolac Marke. On the Saturday it's in full swing with with farmers selling fruit and veg and there's hand-made cheese, dried fruit and nuts etc while inside meat and fish. The flower market is down the steps towards the main square. If you are looking for a supermarket there are a couple of small ones in the sqaure (Diona), if you head past Mullers and follow the street around there's Konzum, and a little further on there's a Spar (all easy walking distance). Coffee everywhere! The host is wonderful and will fill you in on sites to visit. In terms of getting there, it's about a 15-20 min walk from the train station but the #6 tram (buy a ticket from a newspaper kiosk for 4 kuna - less than $1) will drop you at the main square and walk up from there (street is to the left of the pharmacy and a burger place). Cab rides (Croatia has Uber so use it!) are more challenging as it's pedestrian only. If you are coming from the airport, hindsight suggests a better option is make sure you have directions before you arrive, and get dropped at the main square (there is accommodation there so not an odd request) and then walk the few minutes up. In all, a really great option that is a much better option than a hotel.…
Great location, wonderfully maintained rooms, clean and tidy find managed by Irena made our trip to Zagreb incredible. We had Irena arrange airport transfers which worked out well. Irena is great host and always available by text, phone or email to assist with anything during the stay. I wouldn’t hesitate to book with Irena!
Rooms 17 is very nice and good prices. They are very service minded and helpful. They arranged our trip to airport and to Plitvice national park for very nice price compared to other once we asked. Remember beside the price you pay you also have to pay the last day cleaning fees.
Just spent one night here with great location and clean. You got everything you need and free wifi too. At the back of the hotel is a street full of eateries. A short walk to Dolac Market where you can buy souvenirs.
Irena was really helpful on arrival, letting us know what to see and recommending restaurants and bars around the town. The room was everything we needed and exactly as described and pictured - clean, tidy and in a great location. Would stay again!
