It all started bad. We had a malfunction in our rented car's engine, and it was Sunday. We managed to arrive to the city of Osijek and with the help of good old Tripadvisor arrived to Maksimilian's. It was love at first sight. Dolores, the girl in the reception (and, actually, every where..) received us and showed us the beautiful... More

Spent 3 nights at Maksimilian as part of a Balkan tour. Maksimilian is large residence and has been carefully restored into a guesthouse. The rooms are spacious, clean and the air conditioners worked. Wifi connection was also good in the rooms and in the courtyard. A lovely bar area on the ground floor provided a relaxing space for pre-dinner wine... More

Wow, this place was fantastic! We stayed as part of an Intrepid Travel group for two nights, and I don't have anything bad to say. From the moment we entered, we were welcomed in what seemed like their family. As a group of 16 people, it can be a bit hard to make everyone feel welcome, well they did it!... More

What a wonderful guesthouse. The hosts Jacsmina and Vlado cater to your every need. The staff are very friendly and go out of their way to assist you. Highly recommended. It is very central to all of the attractions and Vlado is a great guide, full of knowledge.

Fantastic guesthouse. We have loved our time here. The owners and staff go out of their way for you. It has a homely feel, with quaint outdoor sitting area for afternoon drinks or morning coffee. Lovely bedrooms, very clean. And the location is perfect.

I didn't know much about Osijek before my trip but thoroughly enjoyed it. The ideal start was a warm welcome including a throat warming glass of grappa. Everything continued in a very positive way thanks to the superb hospitality from all the very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Good, clean, well equipped, comfortable rooms as well.

An amazing hotel with incredibly friendly staff and loads of local character. Went above and beyond our expectations in advice on what to do and see, even arranging friends to drive us out on sightseeing trips. Great garden for chilling out, spotless rooms, very filling breakfast and flawless internet connection. Great location just off the main square of the old... More

We stayed at Maksimilian four nights, and we were sorry we could not stay longer. It was an exquisite experience, the location is perfect - right in the middle of the old town, in a freshly renovated old building, keeping the character of the old times while offering all the best that new technology has to offer - the internet...

Lovely and affordable bed and breakfast located in the old town section of Osijek. Just steps away from a pretty square and fountain. About a mile away from the cathedral and main section of town. Room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast had the usual Croatian spread of bread, meats, cheeses and jams plus made to order omelets and espresso. Gorgeous... More

The Maksimilian is one of those places that you just don't realise is going to be as amazing as it is. As a large group, I got to stick my nose in to look at more than one of the rooms and all of them were gorgeous, many of them including bookshelves filled with books. Not only were the rooms...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Guesthouse Maksimilian is situated in the very centre of the old, baroque part of Osijek (,,Tvrda"- The Fortress). A distincive Austo- Hungarian touch of the Art Nouveau style, individual approach and modern facilities at reasonable prices, make us ideal accommodation for short business trips, family visits, weekend breaks... As the present owners, we are giving our best in restoring the house respecting the uniqueness and the tradition of the object itself. We are proud to anounce that our guesthouse is TripAdvisor "TravelersChoice winner" for 2015. Maksimilian is a relaxed, romantic and hopefully inspiring place to stay, miles away from the big hotels with lots of stars. Luckily, our guests are our stars! ... more   less
