PURE URBAN EXPERIENCE
DoubleTree by Hilton Zagreb is located within the Green Gold centre, which is the heart of the new business centre of Zagreb and located just two kilometres from the city centre. The hotel immediately became a bedrock within Zagreb’s hotel scene and whilst one can, of course, expect the chains’ trademark – the chocolate cake that greets guests upon their arrival – it is the location that is the real added value. Radičeva street is a new urban heart of the city that radiates particularly positive and creative energy that is very appropriate for the organisation of events.
Zagreb is one of the most important traffic junctions of Europe between east and west and the Hotel is located 2 kilometres from the city centre, to which it is well connected. Zagreb Airport is located just 20 minutes away and the road and rail accessibility is simple and good. Within the hotel and Green Gold centre is a large parking garage, which is adequate for most needs. The hotel is focused on business guests and from this perspective, it is really well situated. Public transport is freely available, with tram and bus stops outside the hotel door, and Zagreb is also the first regional metropolis in which Uber operates.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
The hotel design is very urban and combines modernity and warmth. Together with the Green Gold Centre, it forms a new urban complex that fuses business to the commercial part of the hotel and the restaurants. Whilst architecturally the exterior appearance couldn’t be described as spectacular it fits nicely within the new business centre and the hotel and its design were built in accordance with the sustainable principle of the chain, which includes co-generation of energy, smart control systems and the use of materials that are certified as environmentally acceptable. The inclusion of local elements, such as Glagolitic alphabet on the wall next to the reception, are pleasant and praiseworthy features.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
Simply put, the staff receive a full round of applause! The OXBO Restaurant incredibly quickly became very popular among Zagreb people. Chef Tomislav Nikšić builds its dishes offer from the grill and using top quality meat. Among other things, you will be able to taste the best black Angus beef in the region. On the wine list Croatian wines dominate, ten of them served in decilitre glasses. In addition to the lavish range of cocktails, they also have a rich selection of beer, or you can enjoy tasting “With Rakia through Croatia”.
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
The speciality of the rooms is the floor to ceiling windows that allow interesting views of the city. All the necessary equipment can be found in the rooms, including Crabtree & Evelyn Citron hotel cosmetics. The design is modern, but with the use of pleasant colours, it is kept warm and comfortable. The hotel operators are keen to point out the use of recycled materials and the maintenance of the rooms with eco cleaning products. The hotel has 6 multifunctional rooms, the largest of which can accommodate up to 250 guests. All rooms have daylight and are technically very well equipped. The offer is further complemented by the nearby Convention Centre in Gold centre.
DESSERT – The extras
One of the largest hotel fitness centres in Zagreb (985m2), which is equipped with a 12-metre swimming pool, panoramic sauna and Turkish bath, can be found on the 10th floor.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Quite expensive parking prices, but it’s probably hard to find cheaper spaces in the city centre.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
Very professional and friendly staff.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
Genuine hotel services, staff that really makes you feel welcome and at home, modern design with a dose of luxury and a relaxed, informal and cosmopolitan atmosphere are characteristics of Zagreb’s latest hotel acquisition. OXBO restaurant gives even more special character, as a result of which we can say that this hotel has a ‘concept’ and a ‘signature’. Unsurprisingly, it has been rewarded for the second successive year with the TripAdvisor certificate of quality, which we can also happily confirm without a single reservation.
