Often thoughts of Croatia focus on beach destinations and its capital Zagreb can sometimes be overlooked, recently though this has started to change and visitors are turning up in their droves! A generous dose of culture, architecture, galleries, museums and a thriving gastronomy scene make this the city break destination of the moment. The Sheraton Zagreb Hotel is perfectly located and is the ideal accommodation for the luxury traveller. Both British Airways and Croatia Airlines fly direct from London to Zagreb and with flight times of just two hours and 15 minutes, this is ideal long weekend territory.
The Sheraton Zagreb is located right in the city centre, with public transport nearby and a brief stroll from the city’s attractions. The hotel has a formal elegance and old school glamour that has been updated just enough. There are 306 rooms and suites, plus a heated indoor pool, Wellness & Spa centre, fitness facility, two restaurants, a café and a bar. There’s also easily accessible parking if you require it. The service is excellent; kind, helpful and with a class that shouldn’t be overlooked.
Choose from deluxe rooms (22-35m2), classic suites (39-49m2), executive suites (63-76m2) or the presidential suite (257m2). Sorry to be predictable, but the presidential suite is stunning with its wood-plated drawing room and city view! If your requirement is for slightly less than a luxury apartment, then all the rooms are actually lovely; the suites include VIP services so if your budget can stretch, I’d definitely recommend it. All rooms and suites include king-size beds, seating area, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, flat-screen TV, safe, minibar, and ensuite bathroom.
Restaurants & Bars
For an evening meal or for breakfast, the Fontana restaurant is a beautiful space, more contemporary in design than other areas of the hotel, overlooking the fountains in the lobby and serving a delicious range of Croatian and international dishes. For more traditional and formal dining surroundings, King Tomislav offers an innovative blend of traditional Croatian regional dishes on its weekly seasonal menu. Both have exceptional wine lists including locally produced, excellent Croatian wine. For a lighter bite in a funky café, the Café Imperial is the place to go, the weekly seasonal menu includes salads, soups and sandwiches and of course a range of cakes to have with your coffee. The elegant Piano Bar is the perfect space to grab a light bite and a cocktail with friends or enjoy a quiet morning croissant.
Pool & Activities
The Wellness&Fitness Beauty Medical Center Murad is the place to take your tired muscles after strolling Zagreb all day; its gym, saunas, relax zone and swimming pool are just what you need to rejuvenate. Exploring the cobbled streets of Zagreb is a relaxing affair, with lots of stops along the way to grab a coffee in the next café or wander round a gallery. Culturally it’s a paradise; Austro-Hungarian architecture (don’t miss the Gothic, twin-spired Zagreb Cathedral and 13th-century St. Mark’s Church), museums (and there are more here per square foot than anywhere else!), theatres, concerts, cinema – take your pick! In the warmer weather, Jarun Lake in the southwest of the city is the place to go for a swim or sail and don’t miss the lakeside discos in the evening. When the snow falls, there is fabulous skiing to be had at Mt Medvednica, which is just a tram or bus ride from the city.
Request a room on one of the upper floors for the better views.
A culture-lover’s paradise awaits in Zagreb and the Sheraton Zagreb is the place to stay for comfort, luxury and to be perfectly positioned to take advantage of all the city has to offer.
