Hotel Overview


In downtown Zagreb in the Donji Grad district, five minutes' walk from the train station and where you’ll find many of the city’s museums and galleries.

Rooms at Esplanade Zagreb

The rooms and suites are classic, stylish and comfortable, with plush beds with goose-down duvets and marble bathrooms with drench showers and L’Occitane toiletries, complete with heated floors.

Food and Facilities

Going hungry at Esplanade isn’t an option, with four restaurants and bars to choose from: Zinfandel's is Esplanade’s highly regarded restaurant, acclaimed for its innovative take on traditional dishes, while Le Bistro fuses Croatian and French cuisine. Esplanade 1925 is an Art Deco bar serving afternoon tea and cocktails – not necessarily apart - and the Oleander Terrace has a champagne bar and outdoor grill and often has live music. The Health Club has saunas, a fitness room, a spa and relaxation areas to chill out after a busy day of sightseeing.

Activities at Esplanade Zagreb

Zagreb is a dream for culture lovers, being full of festivals, exhibitions and concerts, and has a cafe culture that has become a people-watching pastime for the locals – all of which is nearby in the downtown area. The hotel is just a few minutes away from the Archaeological Museum, the Art Pavilion and the cathedral, which are some of the city’s biggest draws.
