This is the second time we have stayed at the Phoenix. The first was several years ago and renovation was taking place (which was a disappointment at that time). We wanted to give a second chance -- that was a mistake. After a fast and quick check-in, we were gone through the evening to a wedding and returned late - after midnight. After a day of 30C in Zagreb, our air conditioning did not really work -- and then would shut down on its own after 45 minutes. Getting assistance from the desk did not solve anything. I had to turn the air back on 4 times during the night -- it would just keep shutting off. Also, I use a breathing machine every night -- the power outlet next to the bed turns off when you turn the light off! I had to use an extension cord to get power. The Internet is very slow. After complaining about the air conditioning the next morning, the desk person only offered that she would inform the manager. The lights for the night entrance are turned on with a motion sensor with a long delay -- it would be easy to trip on the steps. The timing should be changed.
Upkeep and maintenance need serious attention. The flush button on the toilet needed replaced and was hard to use. The lamp over the desk looked like it could come off the wall. All of the right pieces are there, but it is impossible to assemble a good picture of the puzzle.
There are many nice features -- great artwork in many places, bright dining for breakfast with a good selection.
