“Top notch accommodation in Osijek”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Brilliant place to stay in the best part of town. Wonderful hosts, especially Gordana, who gives great advice and provides interesting conversation (and cooks a mean ham and eggs). Location is excellent, great Slavonian restaurants nearby, and a wonderful old pub round the corner (Old Bridge Inn). The Fortress is an open air museum and staying at Maksimilian enhances one's visit to this great town. Make sure you visit the Museum for Sea Life nearby - owner Vladimir is a most astonishing man. I am sure I will return here for its exceptional hospitality.

Located in the old fortress its nice and quiet, but still has bars, cafe's and restaurants around it.
The room we had #1 was huge and clean but right next to dinning area.
Breakfast was good and felt like being at home.
Friendly staff
A bit of a walk to the town
Nice places to eat in the fortress anyway.
Very charming place to stay

Excellent location within the old Fortress/Tvrđa. The service and hospitality of all the staff is always at a high level for all their guests. Breakfast is till 10 am and it is very tasty. Rooms are large and comfortable and very clean and each one is decorated in a special and original way that adds personality to the hotel.
Every time I visit Osijek I gladly stay there.

This beautiful guesthouse is up there with the best accomodation I have ever stayed in. Of course there is no bar or swimming pool or any other unnecessary amenitiy that goes with so called "luxury" accommodation which one always pays for but never uses. There is though character, charm and history galore. The guesthouse itself is magnificent and the rooms are beautiful with everything one would expect in a top quality guesthouse. What you don't expect is the warmth and gratuitous hospitality of the people who own and run this gorgeous place in fascinating and beautiful Osijek. Truly a place to be experienced for yourself if you are lucky enough to be in this part of the world.

We were here with a small tour group, and the two of us stayed on the top floor in a spacious room with sloped walls (sort of a remodeled attic space). The house was built in the 1800s and retains many period details, including a beautiful curving staircase and gorgeous chandeliers. The breakfast was good--the usual selection of cold cuts, yogurt, breads, jams, boiled eggs, juice, cereal, coffee, etc. The owner is a gregarious, energetic woman who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. The location is great--just a few minutes from restaurants, bars, and shopping.

Stayed here as part of a tour and had a lovely stay. Our room was quite big and the bathroom looks recently updated. There is a 24 hour bakery on the corner and it is a 3 min walk to the Square of the old town and about 20-30 min to the main city square, it's a nice meander along the river. The hosts are very helpful and there is a large breakfast offered in the morning.

We stayed here for two nights as part of a tour. The rooms are nice, but small and the furniture has sharp corners, leading to a few bruises. Other than that they were comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and gave a flavor of the region. The owner is usually around, friendly and very gracious. Highly recommended.
