City of Zagreb Gets Third Hilton Hotel Worth 20 Million Euros

As Novac writes on the 26th of September, 2019, the Croatian capital of Zagreb has now received its third Hilton hotel which is worth a massive twenty million euros, according to Zagreb City Hotels, the company that manages Hilton hotels in Croatia's capital city.

Zagreb's brand new Hilton Garden Inn opened its shiny doors for the prestigious Hilton's 100th anniversary, and the four-star hotel is located on Radnička cesta (road), just a twenty-minute drive from Zagreb's Franjo Tuđman Airport.

The hotel boasts 153 rooms, a fitness centre The Shop, which is a small shop, and a self-service laundry room. In addition, on the eighth floor of the Hilton Garden Inn, there is a convention centre spanning 1,000 square metres, and within the complex lie five spacious multifunctional halls that can accommodate up to 1,000 people at any one time.

In addition, the hotel also has a restaurant on the ground floor, which, as they emphasised from Hilton using different terminology, can be adapted to different settings. It serves breakfast, a daily lunch and a la carte meals, yet this large space can also easily be transformed into an event space, house car promotions and other events which command a large space.

With the opening of this brand new Hilton hotel, according to the company, the increasingly popular City of Zagreb ''got a quality new offer for its tourist offer, a new, modernly equipped congress hall with a striking design overlooking the city and a modern restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel which will become new, very attractive places for organising weddings and other exclusive events.''

Hilton is the world's leading hotel company and commands respect from travellers the world over. It currently operates in 113 countries across the globe, with more than 5,600 hotels currently under its belt.

Zagreb's New Hilton Hotel Saw Huge Investment from Zagreb City Hotels

As Poslovni Dnevnik/Marija Crnjak writes on the 19th of September, 2019, after the DoubleTree and Canopy hotels, this is the third Zagreb hotel operating under the Hilton brand in Zagreb, it boasts a four-star categorisation, with Zagreb City Hotels investing a massive 20 million euros into it.

Although it only opened its doors this summer, the Hilton Garden Inn which opened on Radnička cesta (road) back in July is already full of guests, and Croatia's presidency of the EU Council already guarantees some good traffic for the first half of next year and beyond already, according to Josipa Jutt Ferlan, the director of the Hilton Hotel Cluster in Zagreb.

As previously mentioned, following the DoubleTree and Canopy hotels, this is the third Zagreb hotel to operate under the Hilton brand in the Croatian capital city, it has a four-star categorisation, and Zagreb City Hotels has invested 20 million euros in it through a desirable greenfield investment.

Investment in Tourism: After Zagreb, Hilton Looks to Coast

After finding its place in the country's capital, Hilton is looking for further potential locations and opportunities along the Croatian coast for its Canopy hotels as Cappelli cites an investment in tourism for 2019.

As we reported yesterday, in a huge investment in tourism, Canopy by Hilton has found its way to the Croatian capital of Zagreb, but the search for possible hotel locations isn't over for the highly respected hotel company yet. 

As Marija Crnjak/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 12th of November, 2018, the brand nurtures local culture, and this is Canopy by Hilton's very first hotel in continental Europe. After the opening in Zagreb, such hotels in desirable European capitals are set to open, including London, Madrid, and Paris.

Hotel Canopy by Hilton, a massive eight million euros worth of investment by Hrvoje Pezić's Zagreb City Hotels company, was opened on Monday in Zagreb's Branimir Centre.

The lifestyle brand is, as stated, set to take numerous other European cities. It nurtures local culture, and domestic designers, including Studio Franić and Šekoranja, as well as Croatian furniture manufacturers, who are engaged in decorating the Zagreb hotel, as pointed out from Hilton.

In the hotel itself, you can find various pieces of Zagreb's long history, from folklore to its rich scientific and industrial heritage, as well as some of the capital city's typical traditional dishes presented in a new, modern way at the ReUnion restaurant.

The hotel boasts 151 rooms, a restaurant and bar, a fitness room, a retreat room, a transfer room and two meeting rooms.

''After DoubleTree, we're opening Canopy, and we're expecting the opening of Garden Inn next year. We're exceptionally proud of this hotel and we're happy to have had such good cooperation. Croatia is an extremely important market for Hilton. It has a wonderful coastline and we're already looking to expand there and develop our hotels there, but the City of Zagreb is also of utmost importance because it's growing, and we also want to participate in that,'' stated Alan Mantin, Managing Director of Hilton for the development in southern Europe.

Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli emphasised that this investment with the world-renowned brand will contribute to the even better positioning of Zagreb as well as Croatia as a destination which boasts a high quality offer.
