While the history of the property is in many ways a plus, it mean the rooms and bathrooms are quite small.
Rooms facing the street have a problem with noise from passing trams, often early in the morning. Despite double-glazing, the sound proofing should be better.
The restaurant and bar (not the breakfast room) are in the next door building which means crossing a rather ugly alleyway which also serves as access to the carpark.
A real gripe of mine are expensive hotels which don't provide lift-off coat-hangers, but the kind where the hook is fixed to the rail in the wardrobe.
Considering the cost of wooden coat hangers today is hardly prohibitive, this should be improved.
After all, how many coat-hangers is a felonious guest likely to squeeze into his suitcase? The policy of a late charge on a guest's credit card for unbilled mini-bar usage could be applied to missing hangers.
The pillows were either too big or too small and not particularly comfortable.
Finally, the room rates are higher than similar category hotels in Zagreb which is hard to understand given that Osijek is in a region of Croatia which economically is not nearly as affluent.
The overall feel of this small hotel is understated, calm and very classic befitting its age and traditions.
It could be in Vienna. The buffet breakfast is very good with decent sized plates and juice glasses for a change.
The staff are excellent and were completely understanding when I had to leave a day early. Unfortunately many other hotels insist on charging for the booked night anyway and refuse to allow last minute cancellations/amendments.
10/10 for reception staff.
