Built in 1925 to accommodate the Orient Express crowd, the Hotel Esplanade is my personal favorite when I stay in Zagreb and one of the ten best hotels in Croatia. Some people like modern hotels but I prefer this five-star Art Deco masterpiece that now accommodates the most discriminating business and pleasure travellers.
The majestic Esplanade lobby is adorned with swirling marble and wide staircases lead up to the elegant, high-ceilinged hallways. The 209 rooms are lavishly furnished in a classical Art Deco style with plush carpets, comfy chairs and textured drapes. My favourite feature is the bathroom, larger than many apartments and outfitted with marble, fine toiletries and fluffy bathrobes.
Although the Esplanade Hotel is the kind of place where Agatha Christie would be in her element, business travellers are also not forgotten. High-speed internet access is available from every room; there's 24-hour room service and a bounteous breakfast buffet sufficient to fortify you for a hard day. In addition, the hotel restaurant, Zinfandel's, is one of the finest in restaurants in Zagreb. Limousine service, same-day laundry service, wireless access, a full array of conference rooms and a gym complete the picture.
