A new 4-star hotel will open its doors on the bustling Tkalčićeva street in the heart of downtown Zagreb in November…

Hotel Academia will be opened at the site of the former Cascade shopping centre in Tkalčićeva street next door to Kaptol centre. The hotel, which is the first new hotel to open in the centre of town in a while, will have 53 double-bed rooms and 4 large apartment suites.

Hotel Academia will also have shops, a 250-seat restaurant, a wellness and fitness centre and a garage with 170 parking spaces which will open to the general public.

Director of the hotel, Ivica Prevolšek, told Hina that an investment of around 80 million kunas has gone into the new hotel which is just a few minutes walk from the main Zagreb square Trg Ban Josip Jelačić.

“We believe occupancy of the hotel will be excellent, especially at the time of Advent in Zagreb. We also believe that the center and the hotel will contribute to bringing more business to traders on Tkalčićeva street and will be a nice story”, says Prevolšek.

Rooms for 2 persons including breakfast will start off costing around 900 kuna and will be available to book on all leading platforms such as Booking.com, AirB’n’B and Trip Advisor. The hotel will employ around 90 people when it opens in a little over a month.
