“Picturesque!”
Reviewed August 12, 2008

The hotel was every bit as pretty as the website pictures situated on a beautiful and popular promenade which lead dierctly down to the beach.

We finished our trip around Croatia here and we did not regret it. The scenery around the hotel and from the beach was idyllic to say the least and for a pair of lovers like ourselves the walking trail around the coast edge past many beautifully situated cafes and restaurants made us wish we lived here.

The hotel was comfortable and spacious with good amenities and our room had a walk around balcony over looking the promenade.

Breakfast was probably the only aspect which was less than pleasing. Although the service was good and the food edible, we had had much better breakfasts at many other hotels during our trip. But for an all you can eat buffet it still does the job of filling the belly! :D

Our only reccomendation might be that if you wish to be closer to old town then maybe stay elsewhere than Lapad (which is the name of the area in Dubrovnik where many of the hotels are). Staying in the hotel zagreb, we became so enchanted by the beach and romantic trails/views and bustling promenade, we never actually made it down to old town to do any sight-seeing lol.

But on the whole this hotel is reasonable value for money!

Traveling alone to Dubrovnik, I stayed at the Hotel Zagreb for two weeks. Not quite sure what to expect, this being my first trip to both Croatia and Central Europe, I was delighted. The hotel itself is a delicious little specimen tucked into a suburb of sorts, outside of the old walled city. Ideally situated near a market, small shopping mall, the bus, taxis, and an amazing promenade down to a gorgeous beach and scenic walking area. My room was spacious and comfortable with A/C, plenty of closet space, a desk, cable TV, shower and private bath, huge European shuttered windows that opened onto a view of the surrounding hills and plenty of fresh air. Breakfast was simple and hearty. The staff was kind and friendly. Internet access for a reasonable fee in the lobby area. I loved the place and would stay there again in a heartbeat. Wouldn't even bother looking to see what else is out there on a return trip to the area, I so enjoyed my stay at the Zagreb.

Also, took two lovely day trips to the island of Korcula and the Bay of Kotor (in neighboring Montenegro) organized through the hotel with Elite Travel (nice, comfy bus). Would highly recommend both of these day trips and Elite Travel.

  • Liked — The location was ideal - close to the old walled city but away from the tourist throngs in the heart of local daily life.
  • Disliked — That I had to leave it and go home at the end of my two-week stay.

Very nice hotel on quiet walking street a short distance to the beach and a wonderful scenic small inlet. This hotel is about 2 miles from the old city, but the local bus stops 200 feet from the hotel and will take you to the old city at a very reasonable price. The hotel is very clean, the rooms kept up very well. The continental breakfast was excellent. Would definately stay there again.

Hotel Zagreb is located in an old (but redecorated) villa near a small beach in Dubrovnik. We had room 17 (first floor, with balcony) and had a great stay in this hotel. The staff is friendly, the room spacious and clean (nice to have airco) and breakfast is good. The best part is however the location. It is near to the beach (buy some beachshoes, pepplesbeach) and restaurants en almost next to the busstop to dubrovnik -old town.
In Dubrovnik: eat icecream!! (the best one: located right on the main street after entering the town (past the citywalls) righthandsight. Diner: in the old town they love pizza's and other touriststuff. The restaurant at the end of the bay near the hotel is much better!

The Hotel Zagreb was everything we expected it to be. A small, friendly hotel in the traditional style in a superb location. It is situated in a traffic free zone, within 2 mins of the bus stop where buses will take you every 15m to Dubrovnik Old Town. The Zagreb is at the top of a boulevard lined with restaurants and small souvenir shops.Walking to the Hotel Kompas at the other end presents you with a lovely view of the bay. Also the food here is good with live music as an added bonus.
The food at the Zagreb is average. We ate there once during our stay and although the food was tasty it was nothing special. It is better to eat out in the other restaurants around and about. Can recommend the Yacht Club, the Levanat and the Kompas Hotel.
Breakfast was between 6.30 and 10.00 which is a good stretch and enabled you to eat breakfast before going on an early morning trip.
The breakfast was ok but where in the world knows how to make tea like we do!! The tea and coffee were awful! However, it was nice to sit out on the terrace every morning to eat our breakfast.
The room was quite small but we managed ok. Aircon was good to have in the room but it would have been nice to have tea making facilities.
Overall, the friendly atmosphere and good location won the day and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

A £22 taxi drive from the airport, situated on the Lapad peninsula which is the playground of the locals, this small hotel is ideally located. The local shingle beach is just 1/4 mile down a slight inclined promenade which is lined with cafes and restaurants used by locals and tourists.

The hotel is cool and comfortable with a small restaurant and terrace. There is a small room with 2 computers enabling internet access. There are few other facilities.

My Room 6 on ground floor was furnished with a double bed, small TV (CNN only in English), bedside table, 1 chair and desk Ensuite shower, WC and basin. Entrance vestibule with two large fitted wardrobes. Adequate for me as a solo traveler but probably too small for a couple. Room 6 within earshot of reception which could get a little noisy with guests, arriving/departing and locals popping in for a chat with the staff.

Continental breakfast was adequate but never changed over 9 days I was there.

Other Britsh guests on full board reported poor quality evening meals.

Tourist information, cash machine and car hire outside hotel, 2 min walk to bus stop for Old town (Bus nos 6 and 6A, 10 mins journey time, £1 each way).

I enjoyed the three island boat trip on 'Kate' captained by Markos (10:00 to 18:00, 3 islands, £22).

I was also a regular visitor to Lokrum, local wooded island, 10 mins by boat from harbour in old town.

Recommended as a romatic break

I booked the Zagreb based on the reviews here, but to be honest, my husband and I had problems with the place. First of all, they had no record of our reservation. Thankfully I printed out my correspondance with the hotel confirming that I had booked a room and thankfully they had a room open. Secondly, our room was really, really tiny, barely fitting the bed and to be honest it felt a bit like a Russian sanitarium. The bed was beyond soft in a one too many people have slept here kind of way. There was a little too much linoleum and would it kill to put something on the walls, even some cheap motel art? The thing that pushed it over the edge was the giant splatter of what looked like blood on the wall of our room. Okay, I'm sure it was just soda or something, but why wouldn't the housekeeper clean it off? It's not like it wasn't immediately noticeable. We also had a lot of bags and there was no bellman and no help from anyone even though it's a four story hotel without an elevator!!!!! After three nights we moved to the Kompass for a rate that was 50 Euros cheaper and felt much more comfortable. I wasn't expecting the Four Seasons, but they could do a little better.

  • Liked — The outside of the building
  • Disliked — What you got for what you paid - too little for too much.
