    Breakfast, good variety to choose from and cooked items freshly prepared and served to you as you wait. The attention of the English speaking owner and staff, Jasminia and Dora made our stay that much more enjoyable. Highly recommended.

    Quiet at night and outside the city centre - about a 20-minute walk - staying in the old town was a unique experience: close to the river path, the main outdoor pool and amenities and on the tram route.

    The staff were wonderful and welcoming and always available to answer questions and make recommendations. Excellent quality bikes to rent on sight. The A/C was good and strong and the room was large with wonderful windows that opened.

    My only regret is that we did not book this for longer.

    In short, we liked everything. The location could not have been better. Opening the outer gate and walking into the courtyard felt like the entry to paradise. The place was immaculate in terms of cleanliness. The staff were beyond helpful. There was even breakfast served which was perfect for us travelling as a family of four with two teenage boys. The common area just invited one to slow down and relax. We had good weather, but in case of bad weather there were tons of reading materials in several languages. We were recommended a nearby restaurant where the food was local and delicious. We kept eating past the point of where we should have stopped. I actually look forward to another opportunity to come back to Osijek so that I can stay here again. Seriously.

    There was a small issue with the wifi..... we just could not connect but not the end of the world to us but if it's a must for you - maybe contact the hotel before hand to make sure you can get connected :)

    Great location, excellent staff, fantastic breakfast.....loved this place. The rooms were huge, very clean & tidy. Lots of nice little corners to just sit & relax or read (had lots of books you can just pick up & borrow) Had a phone charging station.... first I have ever seen in a hotel....thought it was a nice touch. Downstairs in the cellar bar they served local beer & wine which we sampled as soon as we dropped our gear off, lol. Easy to walk into town but there was also alot going on around the local square, plenty of places to eat & drink. I would stay here again and recommend.

    The property doesn't have a reception, but there's always someone around. There is a common room with a kitchen where the staff serve a hearty breakfast in the morning. Great, sociable atmosphere, I never felt like in an anonymous hotel but rather being a real guest. Staff and owners are very friendly and helpful with information. My onward journey (planning public transport) hugely depended on their support. The place is within the old fortress, i.e. not in the city centre, but easy to reach. Many restaurants and bakeries (open on late evenings!) around. The location is quiet and rooms are comfortable and furnished tastefully.

    The walk from the station in snow was longer than I'd expected but worth every step!

    The staff are the most welcoming and helpful that I've met in 40+ years of travel. Breakfast foods of the highest quality.
