The city's most physically attractive hotel, with both Baroque and Art Nouveau exterior elements, the Union is behind the Franciscan Church and near Presernov trg. It is also where the big names stay—Pavarotti was due in the day we left. The 160-room hotel was built in 1905 and seems to have been in a constant state of remodel ever since. There are guestrooms in both the old and new wings but we found those in the old section to be far superior. They were more recently updated, much larger and more stylish with a cheery decor, good lighting. All are air-conditioned and have minibars and security safes. Bathrooms have tubs, good showers, hair dryers, lighted magnifying mirrors and plenty of towels.
Breakfast is a large buffet which can be taken in the Union's garden terrace in nice weather. The original lobby—in the old part—is under renovation and, with a massive white marble staircase leading to the rooms above, promises to be stunning. There is limited underground parking.
