“All round brilliance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

Wow,what a fantastic hotel. Location is perfect. We booked for three nights but stayed for five.
All the staff are super friendly and very knowledgeable. They helped us with restaurant recommendations and each and everyone was great. The owner told us about some great beaches and then offered to take us there on his way home. The rooms are very modern and new,adequate in size and have a 42 inch tv! A decent size bathroom with walk in shower. There are many English and other satellite tv Chanel's to choose from.
Breakfast was included. You just can't beat this great location and fantastic staff. I would highly recommend this hotel and look forward to returning soon. My sincere thanks to the owners and all staff.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The location was great as we had several outings and there was a parking lot a few meters away from the back door of the hotel. We were able to walk a few minutes to get to the palace or within the walls of the old town. The harbor was a give minute walk away. The rooms are not huge but are newly modernized and impeccably clean. Breakfast is decen and we didn't get to eat any other meals here. The hotel had a
driver pick us up at the port as we arrived on a ferry.

The room was nice and fresh. Bed was really really good. The service from hotel staff was excellent, really better than expected. We felt really taken care of. We would recommend this new build hotel to anyone!
Breakfast was pretty poor though, would have given the hotel an overall review of 4, but the helpful staff puts it back to a no 5.
Location next to main street is nice too.

The hotel is new, modern, and very pretty with a lovely garden in the back. The staff was wonderful. We took advantage of their airport pickup service which was a bit more than the bus, but so easy and reliable. The staff also had good tips on what to do in Split. The location is very good too, just a few minutes to the center of the old town. I don't normally post reviews, but the stay was good enough for me to add one!

Perfect location, marvelous rooms only topped by the excellent staff. When we didn't find the hotel we were met at a location and brought to the hotel, when our son got sick we were brought to the hospital and had there the perfect assistance... People just go out of theirselves to help you to get a perfect holiday. We loved it.

Room Tip: For families they have superior rooms under the roof that have a nice terrace

Dear Mr. Faluc,

We were happy to assist you with anything, but even more we were happy that your son got better soon. We do hope you will come to visit us again and perhaps experience more Split and Dalmatia than the previous time.
It was a pleasure having you as our guest.

My fiancee and I stayed in Split for one night, on July 4. We found this hotel online, and were sooo happy with our choice. It is SO conveniently located to the old palace area of Split, which we wanted to explore on foot, for about 1/4 of the price because it is not IN the old city. The hotel is also very eco-concious - for example, the air conditioning will not activiate if there are any windows open (sensors are built in). What a great idea! The staff were MARVELOUS - like other reviews, we had a difficult time finding the front door. So we called, and they sent someone out to find us wandering the steet, almost 1/2 a block away from where we shouold have been! What service like that do you find nowadays? One other big plus is there is a huge parking area practically right behind the hotel - a HUGE plus when you have a vehicle, and most hotels do not accomodate it. I would highly recommend this hotel for the person who wants to go out and explore, while conveniently located for those adventures.

By all means, in summer, hotels are extremely expensive in Split Old Town.
Marul Hotel is also expensive, but they will make it worth, especially the staff. They will greet you with a big smile, make you feel like you are the most important guest of the hotel and accomodate every need you have.
Unlike other hotels in the Old town, this one is completely refurbished, and if you will not be thrilled by the small pedestrian street is is located on, have a coffee in the back yard or try the Menu of Day and you will reconsider !
I had a charming room on the top floor, probably the former attic, with a very interesting design (the bath tube was in the room)
