Esplanade Zagreb Hotel
Ranked #1 of 59 Hotels in Zagreb
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2017

This hotel in the center of Zagreb breathes nostalgia. It has a majestic feel, yet it is still kind of cosy. Although some might regard it old fashioned, the place is amazing and really kept well. The rooms are luxurious and spacious. We slept her to nights at the start and end of our holiday in Croatia, which made it complete. The bar is amazing and I enjoyed the restaurant an d brasserie very much. The hotel feels like the Waldorf and the bistro like some small restaurant in Paris. It is a great place to start your visit to Zagreb. The staff is friendly and helpful. It really surpassed my expectations. Price/quality is very good.I would highly recommend it when visiting Zagreb.

Room Tip: I would highly recommend to spend some time in the bar

This hotel is beautifully restored near the old railway station and botanic gardens. It's a pleasant 15 minute walk into the old town. The suites are huge and the service is excellent throughout. The hotel restaurant, Zinfandels, is exceptional. Overall this was the best hotel we stayed in Croatia.

Our first night in Croatia was in Zagreb at the Esplanade.
We booked a suite which was spacious and a high standard. Surprisingly small bathroom. Check in time is 3pm.
We had flown in from Australia so were there at 1 pm. Room was ready at 2.

Hotel is well placed. We walked to the old City, looked at all the sights. We didn't find the funicular until we had climbed all the steps lol but caught it down.
We could have caught the 6 tram back but walked instead. Jet lag set in at 6 pm so we rested and then ordered room service. Good value, nicely served and within 20 minutes.
Food was tasty.

All staff were helpful and friendly and were only too willing to explain things, particularly Luka in breakfast. Buffet breakfast was amazing. So much choice and I cannot understand the negative review below. We sat outside and it was idyllic. All the display was in another room off the restaurant. And then there was an a la carte choice all included. We were set for the day after that.

Next to the hotel is an underground shopping centre which we found by accident thinking it was the underpass to station. The Concierge hadn't told us. Air conditioned which was great as it 37 outside. Lots of food, gift and clothing outlets. I bought great Skechers trainers which I had been looking for elsewhere. Also nice cafe overlooking the square. Railway Station is also worth looking in - old steam loco on display and lots of train activity.

Oryx Car hire next to hotel entrance made it easy to get a car - but book ahead as others were turned away without a reservation. We ordered the car ahead for our departure day to drive to Zadar.

I visited Zagreb in Croatia with my husband. We decided to stay at the 5* Esplanade Zagreb Hotel.

Esplanade Zagreb Hotel is situated just few minutes away from the heart of historic Old Town center of Zagreb. It has a good location for anyone wishing to do a bit of sightseeing as it is close to all its major sights.

The reception desk is open 24 hours. When we arrived we went straight to the receptionist to check in. We were welcomed by quite a grumpy receptionist… Throughout our stay, we were disappointed with the friendliness of the staff and none of them smiled. I was surprised as most of the exclusive hotels I stay in have extremely friendly staff which wasn’t a case in Esplanade.

Esplanade Hotel dates back to 1925 and is one of the most famous buildings in Zagreb.
It is famous for welcoming many distinguished gusts such as presidents, politicians, film stars and musicians. Esplanade Zagreb Hotel has 208 rooms and suites. We stayed on the 4th floor in room 404.
Our room was elegant, spacious and offered traditional art deco surroundings. It was furnished with soft carpets, spacious desk, modern armchairs and a comfortable king-size bed. The walls were decorated with some basic paintings.
Our room was also equipped with Air Conditioning, flat-screen TV with satellite channels and a minibar. There was a free Wi-Fi connection to Internet available.

Our marble bathroom had a classic décor, a bathtub and a shower. There was a selection of natural bath toiletries from L’Occitaine collection.

Breakfast is offered for a surcharge and provides a selection of cold and warm dishes to choose from. As my husband doesn’t normally eat breakfasts, we decided to skip it as it was around £20 per person per night.
All guests have access o the health club and the use of sauna and fitness area is free to all guests staying at the hotel. The Hotel doesn’t have a swimming pool.

Overall experience:
Esplanade Zagreb Hotel has a great location, comfortable rooms and nice small relaxation area. There is also a couple of restaurants on site if you are too lazy to walk to the city centre. The only negative aspect of our stay was the service we received and I hope that it will improve as other than that the hotel has the facilities to enable anyone to have an enjoyable stay.
