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.

Enjoy!

Room Tip: I stayed in a room on level 1- it's nice as there are only 5 rooms on that part of the floor. M...

Understaffed hotel with one staff at reception ,one in resturant and one housekeeping ( fro two days ) .
Rooms not ready even beyond check in time and the breakfast was just basic.
They have a parking which is a posiitve point and other is that tram passes in front of the hotel which is a big plus as the hotel is in the middle of no where ie no sight seeing sites near by .
Wifi doesnt work on apple Phones for that you have to go to reception and get your DNS addres changed , even with android phones it acts up.
The rooms are comforatble, no kettle in the room but tbathrooms are ok.
We stayed here for a night only .

The very friendly madam at the reception let us check in even though it was not 14.00 already. The lobby, restaurant and also the rooms look very smooth and modern. At the breakfast you will be asked what kind of eggs you want and the chef will prepare it for you. Very reasonable price for this kind of hotel. Parking is free

This is a centrally located hotel with a parking. We reached the hotel in the afternoon and only one room was ready. We had to wait for more than half an hour for the other room. The breakfast is very basic. There was no sliced bread and no coffees like latte, cappuccino etc. There was only one person who took the order for the eggs and probably went in the kitchen to make them also. No kettle was provided in the room and the AC in the rooms is set and you cannot change it, so it was stuffy at night. The duvet provided was not the standard size and the smallest I have ever seen. The hotel is made well, is clean, but it needs a bit of sprucing up.

The only negative for this hotel was the wifi which needs upgrading but only for the operating system as once onto the network the signal was fantastic. Everything else was a huge positive; the service is excellent whether on the desk, at the bar or in the restaurant, they all make you feel welcome. The rooms are large, comfortable and tidy and overall a great hotel

Room Tip: I'm not sure there are any bad rooms in this hotel
