The illustrious Esplanade Hotel was first built in 1925 to accommodate passengers of the famous Orient Express. Since then, its grand, neoclassical facade has become one of Zagreb’s most loved icons, epitomising the city’s old-world, gracious charm.

Refreshed regularly, the hotel’s interior simmers with an art deco design that flawlessly blends in the best of 21st century comforts. Each of the 208 spacious rooms have been beautifully furnished to capture the history of the 90 year-old building whilst offerring all the contemporary comforts that today’s traveller has come to expect: elegant and distinctively marble bathrooms delicately conceal heated floors and mirrors lined with generous L’Occitaine toiletries, while in-room entertainment systems rest on polished and sturdy cabinets.

After a day spent captivated by Zagreb’s sights, you have a choice of two restaurants to enjoy. Zinfandel’s Restaurant is widely regarded as one of the best fine dining options in Croatia and offers a contemporary take on traditional Croatian cuisine, whilst Le Bistro mixes Croatian cuisine with Parisian traditions in a relaxed setting. Both offer outside seating, with Zinfandel’s large and graceful Oleander Terrace renowned throughout Zagreb.
After dinner, venture towards Esplanade 1925, a stylish art deco lounge and cocktail bar run by a top Croatian mixologist and frequently offerring live jazz evenings. There is also a health club with a fitness area – open 24 hours a day with available personal trainers, spa therapy rooms, a beauty salon, and a sauna at your disposal.

Location beside train station, Hotel Esplanade perfectly places you to explore both the city and further afield. Wander out of the hotel and you’ll first come to the historic City Square. The grand National Opera is also just 10 minutes away, and if you stroll through the safe and colourful pedestrian streets of the upper town, you’ll be greeted with a plethora of interesting boutiques, cafes that have been made for people watching, and trendy bars.
