In general this is not such a bad hotel, and I would do wrong to its staff with my rating, because staff is excellent, and so is breakfast with everything to choose from; rooms are spacious, elevators quite modern, all is impeccably clean. All of these deserve a rating 5. The hotel is situated some 10 minutes easy walk to the old town, but it is also sufficiently close to good roads that are not congested, which means easier arrival and departure on four wheels. It is quite newly refurbished, so no complaints on its looks. Here I should mention that TV sets need an urgent replacement for newer models (image is quite low quality, with white noise at times...).
However, there are two terrible issues that I cannot forgive a hotel. If staying in hotel, two important things are getting rest and feeling secure. Well, had I been among the lucky ones who got a room facing courtyard, I might have not been so negative. But having been given a street room, which make the majority of hotel rooms, this was impossible, since the street is just a few yards from windows and has heavy traffic, non-stop. Windows are the usual plastic ones, and I had no feeling that they provided any upgraded sound protection (as one nearby hotel does, equally located on the same street - no problem with noise there!). And last but not least, bathrooms have mirror-flat flooring, and I managed to fall in the bathroom having slipped over a small pool of water dropped after leaving tub. Luckily nothing happened, and I managed to fall rather well, without hitting anything. A hotel that provides no noise protection and has no security in mind in bathrooms actually has no respect for its guests.
Again, excellent staff, including the cleaning department.

Nice hotel but not in centre of town and a good walk to waterfront. Room very spacious and clean with a balcony. Nice breakfast, friendly staff. When asked for ironing board and iron, the iron didn't work because cord was almost worn through and one of the ironing board legs were missing!

We planned to explore Dalmatia and make Split our base for 7nights and in doing so we chose this hotel . I have no idea why this place is so under rated on Tripadvisor but definitely this hotel deserves a better rank .The hotel is very good value for money ,served good breakfasts and the staff were extremely friendly and helpful . Room cleaning was excellent even for a fussy person like myself. We got Room 301 on the top floor with the ac, balcony and everything that one expects from a 4 star hotel.A lot of English channels are available and will keep the kids entertained. It is 2km away from the City Center in a good locality with banks, supermarkets and cafes nearby . You can take the bus as well to the city centre . Personally I didnt like the city center hotels as the buildings there are pretty old and a bit run down and I prefer the comforts of a modern hotel . I think its better to explore the city center the entire day and chill back in a modern hotel.

Room Tip: Choose the large rooms on the 3rd floor with the balcony

Due to the short notice of my stay in Split I was limited to the choice of hotels I had.

I read numerous reviews of hotels and this one seemed to be the least contentious. The biggest pro seemed to be the size of the rooms a the biggest con seemed to be the route march to the city centre.

I made direct contact with the hotel and gave them my preferred requirements - not near the lifts (elevators), stairs, non-smoking and on a high floor away from the traffic noise. They said they couldn't guarantee anything but would try, fair comment. They came up trumps, top floor, far end of the corridor at the rear and non-smoking.

I used the hotel shuttle service from the airport to the hotel. Not cheap but very efficient and far better than a local bus.

The hotel is everything they say it is. The bed was big and comfy. The balcony was huge. The bathroom was clean but my only crib about it was the pump action soaps, they aren't of a decent quality. Tea and coffee making facilities are supplied which I used with no complaint although I had to plug the kettle in on the bedside table as the sockets provided in the vicinity of the tea and coffee are taken by the TV and Cable TV. I never watched much TV but what I saw was in English with Croatian sub-titles, no problem.

Breakfast was of the buffet style. It was constantly kept refreshed. If something was empty and not spotted by the staff then a quiet word and they went and got it. I've no idea where the comments about "nothing left" came from that I have read in other reviews, it certainly wasn't the case while I was there.

As far as the walk into town was concerned it's no big deal. My wife timed it a few times and a brisk walk to the north gate of the old town takes about 10 minutes and a stroll about 15 minutes tops. Walking back takes a minute or two longer as it's up hill, not really a hill more of a gentle incline.

The staff were polite, welcoming and didn't mind a chat. They arranged a "Split Card" for me and explained all about it.

On the whole, not a bad hotel.

I haven't posted any pictures as they would be the same as those already posted or the hotel's own ones.

Room Tip: Top floor rear are quieter. Contact the hotel direct for special requirements.
