There’s a chronic shortage of B&Bs in Croatia, and the small and welcoming Kairos comes as something of a reach of fresh air. Situated a 15-minute walk from the main square, it’s an intimate and friendly place with four small rooms –one of which can serve as a triple, although most are intended for single or double occupancy. Each room is decorated according to some Zagreb theme: the Writers’ Room evokes memories of local scribblers such as Matoš and Krleža; while Granny’s Room teases guests with images of fresh vegetables and home-cooked food. There’s a bright breakfast room, and extras such as laundry and bike-hire can be arranged. Despite being something of a new kid on the block (Kairos only opened in 2012), it is already the recipient of good word-of-mouth – so book well ahead to be sure of a room.
