Canopy by Hilton has officially opened its first hotel in continental Europe, Canopy by Hilton Zagreb.
The hotel, which joins Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik in the brand’s European portfolio, is situated in the heart of Croatia’s capital, near the city’s main rail station and the upcoming Branimir Centar shopping mall.
Guests can grab a complimentary Canopy Bike and explore the many nearby attractions, where there are shops, restaurants, and nightlife in every direction.
With more museums per capita than any city in the world, and with a vibrant art and theatre scene, Zagreb is a city of great culture with much to explore.
“We are thrilled to introduce Canopy by Hilton Zagreb as our first property in continental Europe.
“Known for its rich history, vibrant culture and community-focused neighbourhood, Zagreb is a natural fit to welcome the next Canopy by Hilton property,” said Gary Steffen, global head of Canopy by Hilton.
“We are delighted to bring our locally-inspired lifestyle brand to this cosmopolitan city and look forward to sharing the Canopy by Hilton experience with our guests and neighbours in the heart of Croatia’s bustling capital city.”
Canopy by Hilton Zagreb is home to 151 Just-Right rooms, including eight spacious suites.
The interiors of the rooms are inspired by the long industrial history of the local neighbourhood, with local textiles and artwork featured throughout.
This includes the brand’s signature canopy bedframe, inspired by Croatia’s national emblem and carpets inspired by traditional folk costumes.
The hallways also highlight the neighbourhoods’ rich history, lined with posters of the famous Croatian investor Nikola Tesla.
“With nearly 600,000 tourists visiting Zagreb between January and June 2018, the city is quickly becoming a must-see destination in Europe,” said Simon Vincent, executive vice president and president Europe, Middle East and Africa, Hilton.
“With Croatia’s pristine beaches and vibrant cultural scene, we are pleased to be opening Hilton’s third hotel in the country following the DoubleTree by Hilton Zagreb and Hilton Imperial Dubrovnik.”
