A very bad experience

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 23, 2012

We booked a room at the hotel ilica. The amount was 399 kunas (as written on their website and as confirmed in an e-mail they sent us), which is pretty cheap for the centre of Zagreb...but we could not stay at this hotel. After having spent a few hours in the room of our hotel (which was not very clean), we came down to the lobby to pay. We were asked a higher price (15 euros more) than the 399 kunas. When we asked politely for explanations, we were told that we had to leave the hotel, and we were insulted (xenophobic comments on French people), threatened (the manager threatened to throw our luggage away if we did not leave immediately) and thrown out, with no rational explanations. At 20.30 pm, we had to look for a new hotel in Zagreb. We went to the tourist office of Zagreb and they told us that something similar happened two days ago, that they know how this hotel has to be avoided.

Unique Quality: the location is ok

A Hotel Lonely Planet Got Wrong

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 19, 2008

For some strange reason, probably timidity, I stayed at Hotel Ilica twice. Each time they kept my passport and refused to give it back to me until I paid the full amount owed for my room. The decor is postWW2 kitsch, the desk help is surly, and on both occasions I had to ask to change my room, as there was an indefinable smell. Prices are not great considering what you get -- around 80 Euro -- and there are hotels closer to the centre. Ilica isn't the most exciting street to be on, either--lots of traffic although it does lead into the centre.

Unique Quality: Smelly rooms.

Directions: Don't find it!

Gaudy but comfortable

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 6, 2007

Zagreb doesn't have suitable budget accomodation for those who want to stay cheaply but comfortably (i.e. pensions that are well-advertised). I stayed in Hotel Ilica, which is outside of the main central area, but still within walking distance and is of course on the Ilica tram line. The hotel was comfortable but quite showy. My room would have been nicer had they not tried to shove so many gilded knick-knacks into such a small place. Nevertheless, the bathroom was modern and functional, the bed was plush and comfortable and the breakfast was hearty. It was beyond my usual budget at almost 70 euro a night, but it was well worth it.

Unique Quality: Again, the cheap but pompous crap is the hallmark of the hotel. In truth, the good thing about the hotel is that, despite being on Ilica it is very quiet and I had no trouble falling asleep.

Directions: Go west on Ilica from the central square. You can also take tram 6

Budget accommodation

by written on September 29, 2002

This hotel on Ilica street is recommended in the budget sections of guides such as Lonely Planet. On arrival in Zagreb we checked in here and were given a double room in the annexe section at the rear – the room stank of cigarettes, was dark and dreary with half its lightbulbs blown and no light at all in the small shower room. It was 30 degrees Centigrade out and there was no air-conditioning or ceiling fan. Even with window and door open it was stifling and depressing – we checked out the next morning. Might be okay for shoestring travellers. Warning – cash only, no credit cards accepted!
