    Splendid hotel , good service .
    Its historic past has been respected ( this hotel was built to shelter the wealthy travellers f the Orient Expres Train in the 19 century ) but all commodities are there .

    Food is great especially at the restaurant attached outside the hotel ,down on the right .

    Arrival to the hotel from the airport was easy. I took the airport shuttle bus to the main bus terminal, then a quick taxi ride from there. Taxi driver knew exactly where the hotel was. Upon arrival, I was greeted at the door and promptly checked in by very pleasant staff who spoke excellent English.

    I stayed for 2 nights and this was a great location for a base to walk around to the various popular sights. The train station is down the street, so very convenient if you require train travel. You could walk with your luggage if needed - it's that close!!! No need to taxi. There is an underground shopping complex near the hotel....a supermarket if you want to purchase water or snacks. You can buy tram tickets at any newspaper stand. I noticed at least 3 in the underground mall.

    The room itself was very spacious and a very large bathroom, which is around the corner from the main bedroom area, which is good because there is no door to the bathroom area(sinks, bathtub and shower). The toilet has a separate room with a door - no worries there! I have no complaints as I was travelling solo. There were comfy bathrobes to use and the bathroom was equipped with a hair dryer which worked well. The bed was comfortable enough, but I have had better hotel beds. The linens were fantastic with many pillows. The TV had limited English speaking channels - definitely not a deal breaker. There was also free wifi which worked very well.

    The staff helped me with the many questions I had about getting to Ljubljana for a day trip by train - which I highly recommend. They were also very helpful in getting me to the bus station for my departure to further explore Croatia. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It is very historical and unique building with lots of charm.

    I would certainly recommend this hotel - it was just magnificent and the meals were delicious. Had never tasted Croatian food before. The room was certainly 5 star.

    A wonderful hotel


    After a 29 hour flight from Melbourne, it was a treat to stay at such a beautiful and well appointed hotel. My wife and I stayed in one of the deluxe rooms, which was a generous size, had a great bathroom and a lounge and desk. Very comfortable indeed.

    I don't know what the hotel looked like before the renovation, but it looks fantastic now. All staff were attentive and helpful, and the concierge was brilliant in checking out bus timetables and walking tours of the city for us.

    The breakfast here was one of the best I have experienced. While there is also a ground floor restaurant open for lunch and dinner, unlike previous reviewers we thought it was good rather than great. However, compared to other restaurants in Zagreb, you could do a lot worse than have dinner at the hotel restaurant for at least one night of your stay in Zagreb.

    In summary, a fantastic hotel for tourists and business travellers alike.

    Great Place !


    Was in this hotel in last days of july. Stayed there for 2 nights , what can i say , it's pretty good hotel , realy 5 stars hotel. I was also in Sheraton in Zagreb , and i can tell that Esplanade realy better , why you will ask , beacouse they just made restavration of their hotel , they made LAN internet cables in each room (if you have notebook , you can use internet from your room) or you always have free internet in the buisness center. Only one minus which i can tell about this hotel , that they don't have swimming pool(Sheraton has it) , maybe someone not interesting in it , so , then your choose must be Reget for sure in Zagreb !

    Great rooms , everything near your hand whatever you want , if you need something you can always ask personal which working in hotel , they will help you kindly, it's not a problem at all. Of course , agree with other persons , great bathroom , one of the best , which i sow in hotels all over the world.

    I had only breakfast, but you , of course , can have a dinner and supper there , right in the hotel , or on the street , it's Reget restoraunt from which you have a view on square and fountain. Breafast is great also , you can choosie something from menu or take by "sweden table" , fresh juice and many else.

    So , in all , i can advice this hotel as for buisness trips , as for tourists , which want to be in nice place , near the centar , and just have good rest in Zagreb !

    Did not want to leave


    My complaint - that our stay was only 1 night. This was an amazing hotel - it deserves the 5 star rating. Our stay here was part of a 21 night trip, so we experienced many hotels, and this was the nicest - and had the best shower and bath (separate) of all the hotels. We also had the pleasure of dining in the hotel restaurant - excellent meal. I don't know when we will be back in Zagreb but when we are, this will be our hotel.

    Excellent choice


    The Esplanade is an excellent hotel. From the graciousness of the staff at our initial check-in experience, to the quality and cleanliness of the room, to the property's excellent location, our stay was a first-class experience. I would strongly recommend this hotel.



    We were at the Esplande in Febuary 2005 for a weekend in Zagreb. We would have quite happily stayed at the hotel for the whole weekend without venturing out of the hotel.

    This will have to be rated as the best hotel we have visited so far, the package for the romantic weekend was spot on and everything advertised was delivered with a smile nothing was too much for the staff.

    This is the only hotel to stay

    Sumptuous and opulent


    This hotel has had an upgrade so that it is clearly a 5 star hotel with all that this implies. The level of opulence is characterized by sumptuous furnishings and very large rooms. It is conveniently located next to the main railway station reflecting the hotel's historic Orient Express connection. The staff are very professional with a high level of commitment to providing pleasant and courteous service for guests. Very good food from the restaurant - a particularly impressive buffet breakfast with a wonderful array of food to choose from.

    Wow spectacular !


    Stayed for just one night 21/09/04. What a fantastic hotel, the staff friendly and attentive, the lobby awesome. Rooms equiped to a high standard. It is very close to the station but I did not hear any trains.

    You can walk to the centre of the city in 5 mins, it has to be right up there near the top of my list of favorite hotels.

    Visiting Zagreb? this is the only place to stay.

    Favorite hotel ever


    this is a beautiful, beautiful hotel. everything about our stay at the Esplanade was perfect. from the breakfast buffet, to the lavander bath salts in the oversized bath tub, to the more than helpful staff--the Esplanade pays attention to the details. i can honestly that staying at the Esplanade was the best travel experience i have ever had. what a fabulous place!!!

    Come and Get It


    They have done a beautiful job renovating this old hotel. The lobby is worth a visit even if you don't stay here. At check-in they offered us a free beverage as we filled out the few standard forms. Our room was large and very well appointed - and there is free high speed internet access. We had a great weekend rate so the place really was a bargain. And it's just a short walk to all the downtown cafes and stores.

    I woke up this morning and the weather was pretty depressing. It was super foggy-cloudy. It did not look like It was going to rain but it sure did not look like it was going to clear up and be sunny. I'm a gambling man by nature and decided to not take my umbrella. I was in no mood to carry it around an umbrella I was not going to use. Since almost everything is closed in the city on a Monday, I decided to head to the Botanical Garden. It is ...
