Great Location, Great Staff
"A quick search online yields some beautiful photographs of this hotel and they are all accurate! It is a fantastic facility and very well maintained. The location is perfect. A short walk down the promenade puts you on a beautiful pebble beach on Bay Lapad or a short bus ride on Croatia's very reliable public transportation system puts you in Dubrovnik. The breakfasts were delicious and the staff was very friendly. My wife and I stayed here as part of our honeymoon and we were both very happy with the experience!"

Perfect Introduction To Croatia
"This was for my wife & I are first trip to Croatia. We flew into Dubrovnik at the start of our 2 week visit. We decided to book for a 2 night stay in Dubrovnik so that we could visit the old town. After trawling through countless pages on the web for hotels and reading reports posted on TripAdvisor we settled on The Hotel Zagreb. Making the booking via email was no problem..if you wished to call them personally then English speaking is also no problem..in fact that goes for all the places we visited on the Dalmation coast. The hotel is located in the district of Lapad..finding the hotel was very easy coming from the airport by car as we did. On entering Dubrovnik from the main road you soon see signs for Lapad, once in the area the Croations signpost all the major hotels and we easily saw the one for the Zagreb ( this system of signage for hotels was all over the areas we visited ). You are led down a quiet road that leads to a small gated car park that belongs to the hotel..parking was free. The hotel is situated in a very quiet residential area, there is no vehicle access around the hotel apart from the occasional motorcycle..there is a pedestrian tree lined boulevard in front of the hotel that leads down to the bay, with bars, stalls and restaurants along the way. The hotel was spotlessly clean and in excellent decorative condition. The staff were warm and welcoming. We had room 12 which was to us a mini suite. It overlooked clay tennis courts and trees and the boulevard..this room also had a superb balcony with table and chairs. The bed was very comfortable..the bathroom fantastic..all furnishings superb. The buffet breakfast was more than adequate and could be taken on the open terrace. We never used our car whilst there as the local public transport to get into the old town was superb and very cheap..parking around the old town looked a bit of a nightmare to me !! Take it from me that unless climbing stairs is problem for you ((No Lift) then you will not be disappointed if you decide to stay at the Zagreb. Try for room 12. Enjoy."

quiet, pleasant hotel
"Recently renovated, this hotel is on a pedestrian street very close to a bus stop to the old town. Modernized rooms in a peaceful building. Note there is no elevator. The nice buffet breakfast can be taken on a terrace. You can walk down the promenade to a beach. They have two computers which cost 15 kuna for half an hour. When we asked about a taxi to the airport, they arranged one for a discount price-200 kuna, plus tip. We were quite satisfied with the Hotel Zagreb."

Lovely, quiet hotel.
"We stayed in this hotel in May, just before the onset of peak season and had a lovely, quiet time. The hotel is not right at the Old Town, but as another traveller noted, the main attractions of the Old Town are an easy bus trip away. The hotel is spacious, clean and has an old-world feel to it. The easy access to the Lapad, with the numerous cafes and bars, makes for many pleasant walks and meanderings down to the beach. Food was fine - that is, not fantastic, but tasty and ample. This is not a glamorous hotel, but well priced and friendly. Our only regret was booking too early in the season to enjoy the full benefits of the Adriatic, as it was a little chilly for swimming!"

Great location in a lovely setting. Ro...
"Great location in a lovely setting. Room pretty comfortable, reasonably spacious, although it was at the back of the hotel, the garden view is great. Safe easy local bus to the old city and bus station at the end of the street. Staff helpful, if unsophisticated, one person seems to do everything. Breakfast good for the rate and again, lovely setting on open or enclosed terrace. Out the door onto walkway to the beach, plenty of cafes, restaurants."

pleasant hotel in plesant location
"15 mins by bus from centre of Dubrovnik and in a pedestrianised street 5 mins from a beach. Attractive, quiet area near restaurants. Hotel recently renovated. The decor is modern, simple and functional within a lovely old building. Breakfast is the usual range of cereals, breads, meats etc which can be eaten in the conservatory."

Hotel Zagreb - great value hotel in a sea of much more expensive hotels
"My wife and I stayed at the Zagreb in early July. It's a great place to stay in an excellent location. You could look at far more expensive places with views of Dubrovnik's famous Old Town, but is the extra, and considerable, expense worth it? Not really. The Zagreb is in a quiet location, fronting a pedestrianized zone in Lapad; this walkway leads down to the bay and is lined with several restaurants and bars. Just 50 yards away is the bus stop (number 6 or the Express 6A bus) for the Old Town, and in 10 minutes you are there for 8 Krona each way. We stayed in room 15, with its own balcony at the front of the hotel. Very good sized room with a/c. I told the manager that he needed to put the hotel on its own website; we were very pleased with our choice of this hotel. Pleasant restaurant also for dinner and breakfast. I'd have no hesitation at all in recommending the Zagreb."

"We booked a room at the hotel Zagreb for one night only. When we arrived we were very surprised by the beautiful buidling surrounded by an equally beautiful garden. We were greeted as friends when checking in to our room. There was no elevator and we were given a room on the 3rd floor but the receptionist happily carried our suitcases all the way to the top floor. There are only 26 rooms and the area is quiet and close to the beach. I recommend this hotel."

Very nice small hotel
"I have no complaints about Hotel Zagreb, located in the calm, leafy Lapad district of this busy tourist attraction. Our corner room on the ground floor was good sized with plenty of closet space. Pleasant gardens surround the building, which was at one time a private residence. A frequent bus runs to the gate of the old city, 15-20 minutes away. It was convenient to escape the crowds that come to see this unique city. The hotel has character and seems well managed. The front office people were cordial and helpful. Try it."

Would stay there again................
"Hotel Zagreb is a wonderful three star hotel located in the Lapad area of Dubrovnik. The hotel is situated on a pretty pedestrianised promenade which is a pleasant stroll to the beach. If wanting to go into the centre, the bus-stop is a mere 1 minute walk away, where you are able to catch the number 6 bus directly into the old town. A cab costs around Â£5.00. The trip takes no more than ten minutes. We stayed in room 17. The balcony was large and it looked out onto the promenade. The rooms are spacious and clean and decorated stylishly, compared to the traditional burgundy and peach floral hues. The beds are also very comfortable.It was always a lovely room to come back to. The staff were always helpful and friendly. The breakfast was satisfactory and included- cereal, cheese, eggs, sausages, pastries, bread and fruit juice. Restaurants I would recommend in the old town: Lokanda Peskerija located in the old town by the old port. Local prices and great food. Proto- Wonderful seafood although pricey. Nautika- Sister restaurant to Proto and also delicious. Kapitan- A great place for late night eating as most of the kitchens close at 11pm. Free aperetif upon arrival. The servings are HUGE! Troubadour Bar for late night fun sing-a-long type jazz. Some other cool bars are located in the square near Troubadour. Day trips- Go to Mostar, Bosnia. An unusual and beautiful old town with Turkish influence. Montenegro- Go to Kotor Bay! The coastline is beautiful. If in the old town of Kotor....DO NOT eat at La Pasteria as we had a cockroach in our fries and they refused to take the fries off our bill!"

A little gem
"We won a holiday in a competition and chose to visit this hotel. We were looking for somewhere quiet, but close to restaurants and bars, preferably no children as ours are grown up and we were looking for a rest. Hotel Zargreb was wonderful. It has recently been refurbished to a modern high standard. The rooms have air conditioning and satelite TV. Bathrooms have showers that are quite compact which could be a squeeze if you are on the large size. There is no pool or entertainment at night, but the small restaurant offered 3 course menus on an evening and a plentiful breakfast in the morning. The restaurant closes around 9pm, but there is always someone around to serve a drink on the terrace. The staff are friendly but not in your face, and as the hotel only has around 20 rooms it doesn't need many staff. We were amazed how helpful and efficient they were and if you wanted to chat, they would, if you didn't they left you alone. There is no lift but plenty of help with your bags if req'd. As the Hotel is at the beginning of a pedestrian area you may need to walk 50metres or so with your suitcases. We will endeavour to return asap"
