Best luxury hotels in Zagreb 2021


Croatia’s tourism industry has exploded over the past decades. Yet it is the coastal areas that have so far hosted the majority of vacationers. As a result, hidden gems can still be found inland, particularly in the country’s capital, Zagreb. And you won’t be surrounded by tourists like you would in Dubrovnik or even Split. There is a real atmosphere of authenticity here, with beautiful Austro-Hungarian, neo-baroque and Gothic architecture. Pop-up markets, street art, food stalls, parks and musical events make it particularly suitable for exploring on foot. Then, after a satisfying day exploring the sights, return home to rest in your luxury hotel.

Zagreb Esplanade

This hotel is both magnificent and imposing. A large fountain sits in front of the grand 1925 Art Deco facade, giving guests a sense of opulence at first sight. Hollywood elite and real royal life stayed at this residence, with its sparkling chandeliers, grand staircases, wrought iron railings and stained glass windows. 208 rooms have marble bathrooms and L’Occitane bath products and there’s a chic health club. Four, five, and six-course tasting menus are served at Zinfandel’s, as is the gourmet breakfast buffet. A cocktail bar is adjacent and there’s Le Bistro, for a less formal dining experience.
