Zagreb's luxury hotels are not modest affairs. These five-star hotels convey a sense of grandeur on a grandiose scale or quiet luxury on an intimate scale. All the five star hotels are well-located in Zagreb's Lower Town (Donji Grad) within easy reach of Zagreb's sights.
Rooms are spacious and decorated with the finest materials. You'll have Wifi in your room, satellite TV, minibars and the usual array of extras: bathrobe, slippers, excellent toiletries, safes etc. Breakfast will be a magnificent display of hot dishes and fresh fruit. The staff will speak fluent English, Italian and German and the hotel restaurant is likely to be excellent.
Each five-star hotel offers assets for business travellers such as conference rooms and sedate bars in which to close deals. Pleasure travellers can feast in an excellent restaurant, keep in shape in the hotel gym and unwind in a sauna after a hard day sightseeing. (see where to stay in Zagreb)
Zagreb's Five-Star Hotels
The Esplanade Zagreb Hotel
Location: next to the train station
Classy and elegant, this is Zagreb's most historic hotel, recalling the days when the Orient Express was how you travelled Europe. 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.The flagship restaurant Zinfandel's has won a Michelin star and the casual Le Bistro is also excellent.

Location: central Zagreb
Zagreb's newest five-star palace opened at the end of 1917 and it's already making waves. Located in a stately early 20th-century Viennese Secession building, a €10 million investment transformed it into a small luxury boutique hotel replete with marble, soft textiles and a spa that offers Turkish and Finnish saunas, fitness and tea treatments. Of the 62 luxuriously-furnished rooms, high rollers should head for the Penthouse Presidential apartment. The dining experience is handled by Michelin-star chef, Stefano Cosattini BOOK NOW
