Canopy by Hilton opens in Zagreb

Capital of Croatia gets 151-room property with meeting space and local art featured throughout.

Canopy by Hilton Zagreb has opened in the capital of Croatia and is the brand’s first hotel in continental Europe.

The hotel is set in the heart of Croatia’s capital near the city’s main rail station and the upcoming Branimir Centar shopping mall.

"We are thrilled to introduce Canopy by Hilton Zagreb as our first property in continental Europe," said Gary Steffen, global head of Canopy by Hilton.

"Known for its rich history, vibrant culture and community-focused neighbourhood, Zagreb is a natural fit to welcome our next property."

The new hotel has 151 rooms, including eight spacious suites. The interiors of the rooms are inspired by the industrial history of the local neighbourhood, with local textiles and artwork featured throughout.

The hotel has two meeting rooms for smaller meetings and or social events such as cocktail receptions.

For breakfast, guests can start their day with breakfast in Canopy Central, while guests on the go can choose a ‘Break Fast’ bag delivered to their door. 

The hotel's ReUnion Restaurant has a menu with traditional specialities such as Croatian chard pie, Croatian-style black cuttlefish risotto and a selection of local cheese and wines.

Zagreb’s recently expanded airport is about 12 miles from the hotel.
