How to Get There
The positives would be the position, it's ideal as its a couple of minutes walk from the old town and the Riva and with all the rooms being a the rear you get no traffic noise but great views over the port. The rooms are not amazing but done in a unique style, we were on the top floor so had a good view and balcony. The gym was tiny but at least they'd made the effort to provide one with limited space. My biggest negative is the breakfast, just a few pieces of fruit and scrambled eggs and streaky bacon and coffee from a machine with poor quality juice, very poor indeed. Staff were attentive and overall pretty good.
My wife and I stayed 2 nights at this hotel. It is clean, the staff is somewhat friendly, is convenient to Diocletian's Palace and the esplanade, and offers parking....
Other than that, the entrance to the hotel is right on a very busy main street with narrow sidewalks and heavy traffic, including commercial vehicles. If traveling south one must negotiate a u-turn on this busy street in order to return and stop at the front of the hotel. There is no drop off for luggage. One must park half the car, on the sidewalk, while the other half remains on the street. On this trip we were in Europe for almost 1 month and had 4 pieces of luggage in our rental car. Needless to say, it was very challenging and stressful to unload and take them in to their small lobby while all the traffic (including trucks and buses) were driving by and blowing their horns. REALLY TENSE. The hotel offers parking, however, one must negotiate another u-turn, drive south again, and turn onto a narrow rear street behind the hotel, and once there they will open the gate. Then, walk up several public steps to reach the busy street and the hotel entrance. The room; clean, extremely small, even smaller than average European hotel room. We had reserved twin beds in order to turn them into a matrimonial bed. These were the smallest beds I have ever seen, much less slept on. They must have been 30 inches wide. We had asked for sea view. Oh yes, we were able to see the sea (the horizon) over roof tops, using binoculars. In our opinion, the only positive things about this property is it offers parking, it's walking distance to the esplanade and the palace, and some of the staff is, somewhat , friendly. Otherwise, I would prefer staying in a more traditional hotel without all these negative features, even if I had to take a taxi each of the 2 days to reach the tourist area.
I usually go for five star luxury hotels. But this is supposed to be one of the good hotels! Even rated better than the bigger hotel brands there. The reason I chose the hotel was that it was just a few steps away from everything worth visiting, located on a Main Street. Mainly near the Old Town. The port is steps away, Riva Promenade, and Green Market. So everything is really close by including the good restaurants. The rooms are clean. Self service with your luggage and breakfast. The higher rooms have a view of the sea and port area.
This is a great hotel for anyone visiting Split. They have a private car park too which is just for hotel guests, very handy if you’ve hired a car as parking in Split is quite difficult! The rooms are great and they provide a little hand held device which has lots of local information on it, it’s a bit like a mobile phone, but it’s loaded with ideas and maps if you need some inspiration! We had upgraded to a sea view room which I would recommend, albeit that the balcony we had was tiny and only had one chair and a small table on it, but the sun is on that side of the hotel all day, if you’re on the other side, you’ll get no sun and lots of traffic noise as it’s on quite a busy street. This is the first hotel I’ve stayed in where there is a huge window between the bathroom and bedroom! Normally we’ve only ever had walls!! There is a curtain if you like privacy when you’re on the loo; however if you go to the toilet when it’s dark and put the light on, even with the curtain closed it illuminates the bedroom!! Very strange!!
First impression: there is NO space whatsoever for a taxi or car to pull up in front of the hotel. They are forced to drive up on the sidewalk and block the entire sidewalk. Hotel lobby with "breakfast room / all-day bar" is small but adequate.
Our room, with partial view of the sea, was "interesting." You walk into a small entry space with closet on one side and bath on the other. The bed and view are straight ahead. Purple has never been my favorite color, but apparently is was for this hotel's decorator. Room is minimalist, but adequate.
The bath is weird -- the tub (with shower over) has a very large window overlooking the bed (and partial sea view).
Breakfast was limited, but nice. The hotel staff were friendly. The location is good - only a short walk to Diocletians Palace, the seafront, and a variety of good restaurants.
Overall, this hotel worked fine, nothing wrong -- but I would try somewhere else if I come back to Split.
