Apartments Petra
Ranked #6 of 318 Specialty Lodging in Zadar
Reviewed June 18, 2010

I stayed in aparment 1 (2+2) and I fully recommend this appartment, Ileana the mos frendly person I found in Croacia. When we arrived she had prepared broschures for us about the city, things to do in Zadar and explained us everything that we needed, bus lines, restaurants, supermarket, bus ticktets, taxi, etc.
The aparment is very clean, in the house there is a computer with internet for the guests (free of charge), the apartment has one air conditioner in the living room. The only thing is that one of the room has a sofa not a bed.
The place is really calm but a bit far from the old town, may be 30 minutes walking. We used bus, the ticket for two persons is 13 kunas. Also for going to the beach can take you 10 minutes walking. But for the price I really recommed this pleace.

As many other reviews say, Ileana, the live-in manager of the apartment block, is the main reason why staying at Apartmani Petra is so enjoyable.

We stayed in A6, a 2-bed apartment, for 4 nights for less than 40 euro a night (off-season price and extremely good value for money). We arrived on the late Ryanair flight from Stockholm so Ileana organised a pizza delivery for us.

During our stay she walked us to the beach and the bus stop to show us where to go, recommended places to go, played with our daughter and, because it was my partner's birthday, took me on a taxi trip to buy roses and cooked special birthday pancakes, which were delicious!

The location is good for getting down to the beach, but it was too early in the year for us to sunbathe and swim (though it was over 20 degrees and sunny every day). To get to the old town requires a walk and a bus, which was OK but felt a bit too long sometimes if you didn't time it right. I think the buses get more regular in the summer.

A taxi back to the apartments was about 90 kuna and was pretty quick - take a business card with you and learn the name of the pizzeria close to the apartments (sort of pronounced Shimi, good, large child-friendly place which we went to twice) and the driver will find the apartments without a problem.

The apartment building was fine - free internet at a computer downstairs, small garden with a swing and olive trees out the back and very peaceful. Our 2-bed apartment was at the top of the building, and we had a beautiful sea view.

Rooms were very clean, bathrooms excellent and the kitchen well equipped. The only real minus point was the size - the bedrooms were small (but both had good wardrobes) and though there was a TV in the kitchen there wasn't enough room for a sofa, which would have been a bonus.

Zadar itself was a great town to visit - our daughter loved the sea organ and we went back to listen to it three or four times! There's plenty to look at and great cafes and restaurants which meant that we had no problem filling a four-day break. Bit of advice, Zadar shops close early on Sunday afternoon so if you arrive late on Saturday like we did, get your grocery shopping done on Sunday morning!

Would definitely recommend staying here!

We were welcomed by Ielana at the busstop; she walked us to the apartements. She was worried that we were lost if we walked by ourselves! We stayed in studio S3, with some view at the sea. Studio was clean and very well equipped. Large balcony.
There is also a closet downstairs with other things like hair dryer which you can use if you need it.
Ileana gave us suggestions of things to do and she's allways there if you need something.
From Petra you can easily take the bus to the Old Town; it's also possible to walk.

this was by far the best part of our trip to Croatia. Ileana is the best host ever! If you like to walk and enjoy the views along the way then this is for you as the apartment is not in the heart of Zadar.

Can't say enough good things about Apartmani Petra. Great location, super clean, huge apartments. We got a 2 bedroom apt for just the 2 of us and it was so nice to have two bathrooms and bedrooms so we could spread out. The kitchens are great. The owner is wonderful. My only regret is that we didn't spend more nights there!!!

Oh - and make sure you get directions... I mistakenly printed out googlemaps directions and they were wrong so we drove around for an hour trying to find the place.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a few days and we both loved it. The apartment and rooms were in amazing condition with lots of extras (kitchen area, remote controlled air conditioning, a balcony with a great view, patio tables and a place to dry our laundry). Also, the hostess was amazing. Upon arrival, we received very friendly greetings. She welcomed us to her apartment complex and served us delicious home-made cherry brandy and figs from her fig tree. She was very kind and helpful throughout our stay. Highly recommended.
