4City Windows

A converted ground-floor flat mere minutes from the main square is the venue for this chic, welcoming and intimate B&B venture. Rooms are small but all are ensuite and come with a lot of character: one is themed around the local animated-film tradition; another (the ‘Art Room’) is crammed with pop-arty works by Nikolina Ivezić and Tatjana Politeo. There’s more artworks by Ivezić and Politeo in the exposed-brick breakfast room, where you get a decent…

Arcotel Allegra

Owned by an Austrian chain, this was Zagreb‘s first designer hotel when it opened in 2003. The marble-clad lobby, with an aquarium and colourful fish, gives access to Joe’s Bar and the Mediterranean-themed Radicchio restaurant.

Art Hostel Like

Not so much a backpacker joint as a budget design hotel, Like stands out in the Zagreb hostel scene on account of the high number of doubles and family rooms in relation to bunk-bed dorms. Located on the second floor of a reasonably central block, rooms are decked out in minimalist white with flat-screen TVs and abstract art…

Boutique Hotel No.9

The black exterior of this new hotel at the bus-station end of town provides little inkling of what it’s like on the inside, which is a bit like the hollowed out interior of a giant wedding cake. The reception area and first floor are almost totally white, furniture included, save for the black-and-white photographs in the rooms. The second ‘silver’ floor has…

Chillout Hostel

Initially round the corner from Britanski trg, Chillout relocated to Tomićeva, nearer the main square, in early 2013. The recipe is largely the same: a totally renovated apartment building in an off-street courtyard, newly-installed facilities, and neat air-conditioned dorms, ranging in size from three-bed to 12-bed – the smaller ones can be rented as private…
