My husband and I stayed here for 5 nights in early June. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you would like a special holiday in Split!
The hotel is situated within the palace and by the very nature of the beautiful winding streets and narrow cobbled areas, it is a little tricky to find. I emailed the hotel before we left home and the manageress quickly responded and offered to arrange a taxi to collect us from the arrivals area in the airport. The taxi cost EUR40 and the driver was waiting for us when we landed and helped us and our bags to reception. We found this a very useful service and meant we didn't have to look for the hotel. The hotel is however within 10 minutes walk of the bus station, so if you are on a budget, just ask for directions from the station before you go.
When we arrived at the hotel, we were greeted by very friendly and helpful staff. As I had mentioned an anniversary, a lovely box of chocolates and rose petals awaited us on the bed - these are the little things that make this a special hotel! Thank you!
The location is spot on - close to all of the attractions but without any loud music late at night. A quick left turn from reception will bring you into the main part of the palace; take a right once in the palace and you are out on the promenade. There are shops, patisseries, bars and beautiful architecture within a 30 second walk of the hotel. Perfect. Even the beach is just a 15 minute walk away.
The staff were amazing! The cleaners do a fantastic job and the room was left spotless with clean towels every single day. Even the mirrors and fittings were cleaned daily. Brilliant.
The staff on reception were welcoming and friendly and very happy to have a chat and hear all about your day. We had some helpful recommendations and help arranging some activities.
The manager, Dragana, is lovely. She is warm, friendly and loves to chat. Nothing was too much trouble for her.
The room was lovely. The decor is very specifically antique style, but done with charm and warmth. The room overlooked the outside court yard and breakfast area. The windows block out nearly all of the noise for a good night's sleep. The air conditioning was effective and kept the room a nice temperature.
The bathroom was well appointed with a jucuzzi bath and there was lots of hot water.
The beds are nice and firm and very comfortable with high quality linen. There is plenty of storage. The bathrobes and slippers are a lovely touch! Tea/coffee facilities would be nice but are not common in Croatia so no problem.
Breakfast was lovely. The eggs-to-order were amazing and the buffet food, although not my usual style, were delicious and fresh.
Well done Dragana and staff - a beautiful hotel!
