Hotel Turist Varazdin
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Varazdin
Reviewed 22 July 2009

This Hotel was well overpriced at 116 euros per night.
The hotel was clean and up dated. The breakfast was fair.
I asked on reception for any bus transport and there is none,
We got ripped off with a TAXI from the Rail station to the hotel several hundred yards
£10..

If you're driving on your way to Hungary and plan to stop in Varazdin for a night, I really recommend you do not choose Hotel Turist. You'll be better off in one of the cosy looking motels you'll find in Hungary soon after you've crossed the border and I'm sure they're cheaper too.

We stayed one night here and chose this place because our guide book acutally recommended it. We arrived very late in the evening with children, so there was no choice but to stay here, even thought I was ready to leave the minute I saw the uninviting lobby.

We went up to our room and to our dismay saw the state our room was in. It was a very old room which was most probably just the same as when this hotel was built. You could say that it really was Soviet style. The main color was dark brown and everything was old. The beds were practically caving in, the bathroom door handle came off when touched, the toilet did not flush properly (it was one of those ancient toilets where you pull on a rope to flush) and it was a SMOKING room!! So the room had the stench of cigarettes all over.

The car park was absolutely empty with only 2 other cars there. It did fill up in the morning but I did not feel comfortable leaving our car there for the night - even the car park lights were broken. When we walked from the car park to the hotel a car full of rowdy youngsters shouted at us which did not make the area feel any safer.

Breakfast was ok, nothing to complain about there!

When we left I complained about the room beacuse it cost 112 euros which it was not worth. Also our 11 yr old only recieved 20% discount from the adult's price, everywhere else it was 50%. The reaction to my complaints was an annoyed shrug and then a man went up to the room to see for himself the state but only after I'd paid!!!

Apparently this hotel has a newer side as well, which most probably was what our guide book was referring to. Also there were renovations in the restaurant at the time we stayed there. Even so, I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.

There is a big supermarket near the hotel, so if you're on a car trip, you can get supplies for snacks nearby.

Hotel Turist in Varazdin is located near the town’s centre. I was there in October 2006 and a big part of the hotel was under renovation.
My room was a small standard 3-star hotel room, but newly furnished and OK equipped. The bathroom was a miniature. I was there for business and have heard complains from other colleagues about their rooms. As my room was OK so I wanted to check what is they are talking about, and to my surprise some of other rooms were really terrible. Old worn out furniture and bathrooms in desperate need for renovation. So make sure you ask for newly furnished rooms.
We had a full board in the hotel. The food was OK, but nothing more than that and the service in the restaurant was kind of slow. The restaurant itself was dark and reminded me of old socialist days.
Service was OK, but the staff could use some training on how to smile. This goes especially for people working on the front desk.
As I said hotel was under some major renovation works, so hopefully it will become a good place to stay.
Varazdin is a pretty little baroque town with a nice castle which is a town’s museum, many picturesque churches, cozy little streets and cafes, and a beautiful cemetery which is worth visiting. I would recommend visiting Varazdin for a day or two. It is also just one hour driving from Zagreb so it can be a good day trip from there.

Hotel Turist is a standard 3-star hotel located close to the bus station in Varazdin, and only 10-minutes walk from the main square and Varazdin Castle. When I stayed there in Oct 2006 a whole wing of the hotel was being renewed. The rooms are pretty basic, with own bathroom (very bad water pressure in the shower), TV with satellite programmes and a minibar. Breakfast was OK, the usual continental selection of bread rolls, jams, salamis, yogurts and juices. The staff were helpful, but with the notorious lack of any smile (this especially applies to ladies working at the reception!).
The hotel's chef has apparently won few national awards so it might be worth trying the dinner here as well. I was even considering to try it, but the restaurant was already booked by noisy wedding party. Although I must say I was suspicious when I saw this going on at the ground floor, I must say I didn't hear anything in my room behind the sound-proof windows.

All in all - average 3-star hotel at a nice location in a beautiful north-Croatian town.
