We chose this hotel when planning out trip from overseas, sight unseen. We were very pleasantly surprised that the claimed 4 Star rating is well deserved (I have spent hundreds of nights in Fairmonts and the Zagreb Best Western Plus Astoria loses nothing to most of the Fairmonts). A solid 4++· In North America, hotels are simply never, ever, this nice.
Do not be deterred by the exterior. As is often typical in Europe, the buildings all seem similar. Walk through the front door and you realize the rough stone is actually an emerald.
We walked our luggage from the airport bus depot (maybe 10-12 minutes). The hotel is much closer to the train station (3 or 4 minutes), and close to everywhere you would want to see in Zagreb. Don't waste your kronas on taxis.
Staff are one of the most important factors - at this hotel they are a 10 out of 10.
The breakfast buffet is very decent as well. Load up and enjoy.
