We couldn't fault our stay at Hotel Luxe in Split. When we arrived at the airport we were picked up by the hotel transfer which cost us about $45 Euro's. We had no idea but Split is a very busy town with a lot going on...
The great thing about Hotel Luxe is it's location, it is only 5 mins walk away from the "Old Town" where all the action is, I personally think that if you were to stay right in the old town it would be very noisy and too hectic.
The facilities at Hotel Luxe are also brilliant, I heard one person say as they were walking past that "This hotel looks like and ipod" and I couldn't think of a better way to describe it. Everything about it is modern, white and very futuristic. They have done a good job to make it look different from other hotels and we found it to be really fun.
There is a beautiful "wellness" centre which has a gym (that looks a bit like a nightclub), sauna, massage room and a huge spa that looks like it is from space! I had a 1 hour full body massage and it was amazing, I would highly recommend to anyone that it was a good $35 Euro's spent.
Breakfast was included with our room and we found this to be a great way to start the day, they had a little bit of everything so we were very happy with the choice.
The hotel staff were extremely helpful, as it turned out we hired a car to drive to our next destination of Dubrovnik and as Split is all "one way" with traffic the lady on reception told us that it would be at least a one hour exercise just to pick up the car from the other side of the old town. She then got on the phone to the place we hired our car and asked them "very sternly" to bring the car to us, which is exactly what happened. It saved us an hour of trying to navigate the streets of Split so we were very happy.
Something that I would like to mention is that when you get to Split (or Croatia in general) it would be a good idea to have some Croatian Kuna, we didn't know that Croatia doesn't really use Euro's as they have their own currency and if you do find somewhere that does accept Euro's they will just do a very basic calculation and round up the price to the approximate cost in Euro's. An easy way to work out the exchange rate from Kuna to Euro is to divide the Kuna by 7.
Overall we very much enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Luxe and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting to stay in a nice hotel while they are staying in Split.
