On a 2 day visit to Croatia, stayed in this small, recently refurbished hotel right next to the bus and train station in Varazdin.
Due to flight problems in UK we arrived in Croatia very late and having called up before hand to let them know about our late check-in, they had someone waiting to meet us on arrival.
Finding the hotel at night in our hire car using the map provided was straight forward and if you have any problems trying to find it, just follow the signs for the bus and train station, as the hotel is next to the bus station and across the road from the train station.
There is a good sized car park right outside the hotel, but the entrance into the hotel is actually from the car park elevation.
We arrived in the rain, parked up and walked around to what would be the front of the hotel on the main street fronting the railway station. There was no entrance here and we had to walk back around to the car park elevation.
The reception is on the first floor up a flight of stairs and whilst small is very professional and well laid out.
Unusually they still use room keys here and our room was absolutely spotless and well made up with a large double bed, wardrobe with additional blankets and pressing iron.
There is fast WiFi access in the rooms which I used and was perfectly adequate, but bring your own laptop as I did not see any public use hotel computers
The bathroom was also immaculately clean and it had an interesting shower that had everything in it including a radio. Only problem was for me I couldn’t see the dials ( and there are a few) to properly operate it whilst in the shower as I did not have glasses on. That said it put a fun element into having a shower, and when I got the rain shower setting going it really is fabulous. ( BTW if anyone else stays there and figures out what the 2 rollers are in the shower with a shower jet I would love to know).
The breakfast is a self service buffet of hot sausages/ omlettes and cold selection of meats, cheeses etc. This was good.
We walked to the Castle from the hotel and this was about 10 mins. It is a nice walk and the castle is worth a visit as is the street market area. People in Varazdin seemed very tourist friendly.
There is a bank about 5 mins walk away from the hotel and what seems like a small cottage hospital about 2 mins walk from the hotel.
For us it was ideally located and easy to get to by foot and car.
In the evening the bar stayed open and the staff were welcoming and sociable. All in all it was a good 2 days, despite the weather and the hotel was extremely good value. When I re-visit Varazdin I will definitely stay in this hotel again.
