Zagreb Hotels International, Sheraton, Panorama, Jadran Closing Today

Lauren Simmonds

Several popular Zagreb hotels are now shutting their doors, with one of them remaining open, but how long that will last is unknown.

Hotels are putting the keys in the locks of their respective doors across the country. Zagreb, the capital city of the country presiding over the EU Council which was counting on big revenue from the numerous official EU meetings which were set to take place in its hotels – is closing their doors.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 18th of March, 2020, as of today, the Zagreb hotels Sheraton, Panorama, International and Jadran are closing their doors, so far, only Westin remains in operatation.

Certain workers who are working on fixed-term contracts will not see their employment contracts extended, others will go on annual holiday from now until April the 20th, 2020, and if the situation persists, unfortunate workers will be informed of further proceedings as the coronavirus situation unfolds.

Like others, until just a few weeks ago, HUP Zagreb was actively looking for employees for its Zagreb hotels, which were due to experience excellent revenue as a result of Croatia’s EU Presidency. As has since been learned, the situation was being treated as normal until around the March, when the number of guests started to decrease, having been reduced to just a few here and there over the last, crucial week.

As the coronavirus situation continues to hold the global economy in its tight grip, Zagreb hotel employees sadly don’t know what will happen after their annual holiday expires if the hotels do not reopen their doors by then.

It is not known until when Westin will continue to operate normally, which, according to unofficial information, could soon become Zagreb’s only hotel to have remained open. Namely, as was announced yesterday, new measures are planned to be adopted in Parliament today to try to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, which should include the closure of restaurants and hotels.
