Swellegant Stays: Sheraton Zagreb Hotel – Zagreb, Croatia


Sheraton Zagreb Hotel

Zagreb, Croatia

How should you build a new hotel in an historic city? The designers of Sheraton Zagreb Hotel knew that they would struggle to compete with the Croatian capital’s millennia of impressive architecture, so took an innovative approach: they clad their building in glass so that it would mirror the city around it. What you see on the external walls are ever changing reflections of Zagreb, past and present, a marvelous visual effect. By blending in, the hotel has become a landmark in its own right.

Although Croatia’s most famous tourist hotspots, Dubrovnik and Split, are on the coast, there are plenty of reasons to spend a long weekend in the capital. Sheraton Zagreb Hotel is in the downtown area, within easy reach of attractions like St Mark’s Church, one of the oldest monuments in Zagreb; Art Pavilion, and Ban Jelacic Square. If you are coming in winter, the hotel is also well located for Zagreb’s famous Christmas Market.

Guests at the Sheraton Zagreb Hotel are a good mix of business and leisure visitors, many of whom bring their families and pets with them as there is such a laid back atmosphere at the property. Whether you opt for a standard double room or the vast Presidential Suite, you will find there is plenty of space and all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. And you can certainly easily combine business and pleasure: the hotel has an indoor heated pool and luxurious spa, both of which tend to be quiet.

When it comes to dining, book a table at Tomassino Restaurant. On the face of it, this is an Italian restaurant, but there is a strong and proud influence of Croatian cuisine, too. Have a cocktail in the &More bar before you eat, and then offer yourself up to the chefs. They will indulge you with gastronomic delights such as octopus ragu with polenta, followed by crème brûlée infused with lavender.
