Esplanade Zagreb Hotel
Ranked #1 of 59 Hotels in Zagreb
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 9, 2014

Overall: this was a very good hotel with a lot of amenities.

I travelled here on a two (2) week business trip. This is by far one of the nicer hotels I've stayed in while traveling and working in Europe. My only real complaint is with the TV. A hotel of this nature should have an upgraded TV. Instead they still use the old "tube" style TV versus a new digital or flat screen TV. Luckily I always travel with my iPad and computer.

The hotel restaurants, El Bistro and Zinfandels, were both extremely good with excellent service. Several nights my business group and I chose to stay inn for dinner and were never disappointed. I also took advantage of the weight room and spa. For a hotel, the weight room was a pleasant surprise. Additionally, the spa was very reasonably priced with good services.

The location of the hotel is very convenient as well. For the traveller, the euro rail and city rail are within five (5) minutes walk. For the shopper, there are plenty of stores nearby to include an underground mall right next door.

Stunning exterior, stunning staff, especially at the Esplanade 1925 Bar and Bistro. Wonderful cuisine, excellent rooms. Stunning view from the west side. Reputation and standard has never changed. I recommend it to all people who enjoy beauty and style!

My boyfriend and I are both from Zagreb and we were always wanted to stay in Esplanade because of the beautiful reputation this hotel has. So we finally had opportunity and bought Valentine's Day package which included overnight stay in superior room, special Valentine's dinner at Zinfandel's restaurant,cocktails at Esplanade Bar and sauna and fitness (which we didn't try). After our magical Valentine's I can just say: "What a treat!!!!!" The reputation is well deserved.

When we came to check in a kind,young women on the reception told us that we got a complimentary upgrade to the deluxe room in 5th floor. All people that bought that package got it. They had free rooms and they wanted to spoil their guests. Woooow! So nice from them. We already felt special. And when we came into the room we were speechless. It was so big,clean,comfort and beautiful like we expected. We even had a little bit of view of old Zagreb. The bed was so big and comfy,we never slept better! The receptionist called us to check if we were satisfy. We felt like royalty there.

The dinner at Zinfandel's was also good (look at my review for that one).

The "Love cocktails" at Esplanade Bar were innovative and great.

In the morning breakfast was perfect. A lot of choice and the food was lovely and fresh. And it is also served in beautiful Zinfandel's restaurant. After the breakfast we had our coffee on huge and beautiful "Oleander terrace" looking at people passing by and a nearby fontain.

The staff working there WERE SO KIND AND HELPFUL. They wanted to spoil us as much as they could. It was a perfect stay (and we have traveled a lot but this hotel is now one of our favourite).

Choose this hotel and you won't regret. You get what you have paied and even MORE! It looks from inside just how you expected to look when you are looking at it from the outside-grandiose and special. It is a great value for money and it is also in PERFECT location. All the main sights are in walking distance (around 10min). Or you can take a train for 2 stations (the station is a few steps from hotel).

I truly recommend this hotel!

Room Tip: Choose a room on 5th floor and you will catch a little bit of charming view of old Zagreb. Look at m...

Stunning exterior, especially lit up at night. Looks like the White House but way more majestic. The room was cozy and because it was our honeymoon they gave us champagne and chocolates. The food was great throughout the day, and the location is an easy walk to all of Zagreb's hot spots. The hotel picked us up at the airport right on time and with no problems. The only issue we had was the car rental company which the hotel is partnered with. We rented a car to go to Slovenia and literally everything that could go wrong went wrong with the car company. Not the hotel's fault, but they are affiliated so indirectly at fault as we followed their recommendation. Hotel has a great old school feel while offering all of the comforts you want.

Although the Hotel is an old grand building close to the train station, it is not so close to the City Center. Rooms obviously small but the double sinks a nice touch. Thier air/heating system needs an update and thier breakfast just ok for the ambiance, however hey did make great omlets and panckaes upon request. Staff very friendly, nevertheless always use the room safe! Not really a value so if its a business trip, where it looks like most of thier customers are from, its ok considering a heafty additonal parking fee imposed. I wil go somewhere else next time in Zagreb.
