We got there from the airport with a transfer arranged by the hotel, so the driver knew where it was located and saved us from going around for a long time trying to find it. But the transfer van could not enter the old city walls and had to park outside. So we had to pull our luggage all the way though the shopping arcade set in the old diocletian cellars, down the stairs and up again into a smelly back alley with garbage cans that had not been emptied, to get to the reception. There is no lobby and the reception is quite small, Our group of seven people and luggage did not fit into it. Only one small elevator and no stairs from the reception to the rooms. So, the first impression is really not good. The room was good enough, though! Big and comfortable bed and linen, big windows and a spacious bathroom. If you are one of those people who, like me, would rather have the window open during the night instead of sleeping with the air com on, then you are in trouble. The narrow streets around the hotel are packed with tourist groups from early in the morning until late at night. You really need to keep your windows closed if you want some peace and quiet. To find the restaurant for breakfast was another challenge. But it was worth the effort as the buffet was very good and you could also order your eggs. We checked out early but needed to leave our lugage behind for a couple of hours. The luggage room was too small to keep all of ours and we had to leave some of it in the reception. Fortunatelly it was all there when we came back, but a 4* hotel should have a large enough room for that purpose. All things considered, the hotel does not meet all the standards I believe a 4* hotel should, but we were not sorry for our choice due to the fantastic location within the diocletian walls, a lovely, clean and comfy room, welcoming staff and plentiful breakfast.
