Hilton’s lifestyle Canopy brand has opened its first hotel in continental Europe, Canopy by Hilton Zagreb.
The hotel, which joins Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik, is located near the city’s main rail station and the Branimir Centar shopping mall.
“With nearly 600,000 tourists visiting Zagreb between January and June 2018, the city is quickly becoming a must-see destination in Europe,” said Hilton's Simon Vincent, EVP and president, Europe, Middle East and Africa, in a statement.
Locally Inspired Design
Canopy by Hilton Zagreb has 151 guestrooms, including eight suites. The interiors of the rooms are inspired by the industrial history of the neighborhood, with local textiles and artwork visible throughout. This includes the brand’s signature canopy bedframe, this time inspired by Croatia’s national emblem, and carpeting inspired by traditional folk costumes. The hallways also highlight the neighborhood's history and are lined with posters of the famous Croatian inventor Nikola Tesla.
The Canopy Central Café and Bar serves local fare and drinks, including cocktails inspired by Croatian inventors Tesla and fellow Croatian inventor Slavoljub Penkala.
The hotel has two rooms designed for smaller meetings and social events, such as cocktail receptions, and also features a 24-hour fitness center.
The Canopy by Hilton Zagreb is 20 kilometers from Zagreb's recently expanded airport, which the company hopes will bring in event attendees.
