This was a nice experience for me. The hotel is about 10 - 15 minutes from the city centre by the very efficient tram transit service.
It is clean, and modern, and the bathrooms in the rooms are much nicer than you would expect. They are large, and tastefully decorated, with a good sized shower, and spot ceiling lights. Well air conditioned, and spacious.
My only critique of the room, is that there are no facilities for making or having hot drinks. Hopefully this will be addressed.
The service was very good, and they have the best reception staff, who are approachable, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and genuinely interested in your experience in Zagreb, being the best.
The breakfast is good, with a nice selection of juice, fruits, yoghurt, cold cuts, breads, cheese, etc, and hot food is made to order, and is mainly eggs prepared anyway, and sausages.
The El Bull Steakhouse serves some of the best steak you could find in Croatia, and other menu items are excellent to.
The bar opens until 11.00pm (or 11:30), and they are very accommodating.
The spa is a welcomed surprised, and it is a proper spa. It is very inexpensive you use, and you'll be glad you did.
What I found nice about this hotel is that it is away from the city centre, so when travelling in on the (very cheap) tram, I was able to take in the sights, and see areas of the city, that I would not have, if I stayed in the centre of Zagreb.
I would recommend this hotel, as it ticks almost all of the boxes, and PERFECT for a short stay.
