When we were parking our car, a couple who were just leaving said they'd had a great visit, but it wasn't a great hotel. We left wondering what they could have meant. The staff was lovely, the decor was fun, the room was large and comfortable, and the location was excellent. We'd thought about staying inside the Diocletian's Palace and were SO glad we didn't. Everything was a short walk, and that short walk was a terrific buffer. Even the breakfast was consistently delicious. We loved it.

Feb 27, 2015 we booked 3 Superior Douible rooms with sea view for May 25-27, 2015. Our tour guide in Croatia went into the hotel herself early May to reconfirm the rooms would be together and exactly what was reserved. When we arrived, two rooms were on separate floors and the third room was not available at all. The desk clerk said that for the inconvenience of not having the correct type of third room, she would "uipgrade" us to a suite. At the last moment she mentioned that the suite did not have a sea view and was on the first floor. After much arguing and her calling the manager, they offered us 20% discount on the rate for the third room.
We went to the "Suite" and it was HORRENDOUS!!! 4 star hotel. Cheesey purple, grey and dirty white carpet, cheesey slippery grey junky fabric on couch, looking out on airshaft. My 10 year old granddaughter would have decorated better. We argued some more. They offered a bottle of champagne and two massages. Turns out they could not find any champagne and we had no time/interest in the massages. All I really needed them to have said was "we are sorry. Our mistake. First night free." They dealt with the problem in a very unprofessional way. The place is a horror show of plastic. Every container in the hotel and outside is filled to the brim with plastic flowers and feathers. Sort of a funky bordello look. For a place that displays Tripadvisor awards for 2013,2014 and 2015, I was stunned. What appearance, service or whatever brought them those plaques? Tripadvisor, ask for the plaques to be taken back.

Room Tip: ask for water view

Dear RitaTarrytown,

Your review is pretty shocking and totally malicious.

Indeed, we've changed your room for a suite; therefore upgraded your stay into higher and more expensive room category. The only lack of suite compared to room booked was a sea view and that is why we offered 20% discount or a bottle of champagne and 2 massages.
Your reaction to this room change and offered compensation was a clear blackmail by wanting us to offer a free first night stay, or you'll write negative review. And you’ve repeatedly threaten with bad review if we don’t offer free night.
We have many bottles of champagne on storage at any time, but you've refused it and insisted on full refund.

We of course couldn't accept your claim as it is unrealistic; so we've proceeded with 20% discount that has been reimbursed immediately upon your check out.

In return you’ve posted this malicious and abusing review addressing hotel; staff; designer; and worst of all, (perhaps without attention) to all our happy and satisfied guests who enjoyed hotel, staff, designs, furniture, equipment, service and general atmosphere in the hotel. Funny, that among other guests is also your friends who have been very happy with their rooms and hotel in general; particularly with staff and service.

At the end of the day, your review tells more about you and all those people who arrive to hotels with intention to blackmail, threaten and demand large discounts in return of favorable reviews on Tripadvisor and elsewhere, regardless if something went really wrong or not.

I’m sure readers will conclude themselves if we’ve been righteous towards you and You towards us.

With kind regards,

Josip Čulić
Hotel manager

We had a romantic getaway long weekend in Split. The hotel turned out to be an excellent choice. The location is good, quite central but not noisy. The room was clean, modern with a nice balcony overviewing the harbour. Breakfast was very tasty and the staff were very friendly.

I stayed here for one night and found the room to be very comfortable. The hotel has a modern feel and all the facilities of a small four star hotel.

Choose a room with a sea view for a great view of the port which is less than five minutes walk away, along with the bus and train stations.

Breakfast was adequate; not a huge selection as I've seen in some hotels but plenty to keep you going during the day.

The hotel has free WiFi which seemed fast and reliable and was able to store our luggage until later in the day.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a sea-view and balcony.

Enjoyed our 3 day stay in Hotel Luxe. Room was very nice, would always recommend the room with balcony because the view was awesome, staff were very helpful. The location for me is the hotels greatest aspect. Very close to the palace and center. Breakfast was small but decent. Parking is the biggest issue as its in a very tight alleyway and a walk to the hotel would be hard if someone had big bags.
