Apartment for You

Apartment Matilda is in a very quiet Podpinjol street, in the immediate vicinity of Rijeka’s largest park Mlaka and city hospital KBC Rijeka, and just a few bus stops (6) from the city center (our bus stop is called Štranga and acceptable bus lines are 6, 7, 7a and 2a).

It is 54 m2 in size and proudly carries 4 stars. It is designed for a comfortable stay of four people (but there is also room for six people). The apartment was renovated from the ground up. The room layout, furniture and materials used were designed by the excellent interior designer Ms. Andrijana Belavić from the company Kolektiv. The space was furnished with love and care, taking into account the functionality and comfort of the house, even when you are far from home.

Master bedroom with terrace

Apartment Matilda consists of two bedrooms. The larger room is dominated by a double bed measuring 160 x 200 cm, equipped with a high-quality mattress that guarantees you a comfortable sleep. The room is equipped with built-in wardrobes, which provide enough space to store the equipment for a long journey of discovery of the beauties and sights of Croatia. If you are on business or even on vacation, you cannot get rid of business obligations, because there is also a pleasant working corner in the room. From the room you have direct access to the pleasant and shady north terrace.

Smaller bedroom
The smaller room has two beds measuring 80 x 200 with new comfortable mattresses. This room is also equipped with enough wardrobes to accommodate the equipment of a larger expedition. It offers a view of the greenery of the large eco-garden, which is in front of the apartment. From the garden you can buy organically grown seasonal vegetables directly from the owner (Mr. Nedeljko and Mrs. Neda), who will be happy to pick them for you.
Living room with dining room and kitchen
The central part of the apartment consists of a living room with dining area and a comfortable kitchen equipped with all the necessary appliances for a pleasant stay (large refrigerator and freezer, quadruple induction hob, normal oven, microwave oven, toaster, dishwasher…). For coffee lovers there is a top-of-the-line Nesspresso coffee maker, for tea lovers there is a kettle. Plates, bowls, pots, cutlery, cups and glasses of various kinds are in abundance. We hope that you will spend your time in interesting restaurants in Rijeka, but if you have the desire to prepare meals yourself, you will lack nothing to prove your culinary skills. The view from the living room is directed to the south side, to the already mentioned eco-garden. Of course, the living room is equipped with a comfortable couch and a TV with Croatian channels and a Netflix package.
Bathroom
The bathroom is in the range of a 5-star hotel, spacious with two sinks, a large shower, a large mirror, drawers for toiletries and a toilet. It is equipped with a first aid kit in case of accident and a hairdryer.
