Reviewed 25 July 2011

This hotel classified with five stars? Maybe three stars! Good rooms, but bad service and bad food. Not recommendable.

Summary:
Fairly located close to the centre of Split, it is an old-styled Hotel with spacious rooms but a very poor buffet breakfast. I will try another place next time.

Detailed experience:
Facilities and site - Old style hotel, retro decoration, located not in the centre of Split, but at a fair walking distance of it (about 5-10 minutes);
F&B - Very poor breakfast. But If you're only into Irish/UK breakfast you'll do alright though (bacon, eggs, sausages, etc);
Rooms - Relatively spacious, but sleep quality is very important and this room didn't provide it. Although climatized, the negative points are related with the matress (too soft). In addition, the "duvet trend" is something which I oppose completely. No sheets, no blankets, only the duvet... Either you sweat with it, either you feel cold without it. I ended up taking the darned duvet out of its cover and using the cover as a sheet. Plus, the bathroom had no bidet. I am aware this is something which is regarded as obsolet for some people/cultures, but not for mine!

Thus, If I ever go back to Split, I would be inclined to try other places to stay.

Location good, room ok and in the process of refurbishment, food mediocre, but the bar prices were horrendous and it was difficult to find the staff to serve you.

We spent 10 days traveling the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia with another couple. We found that the Hotel President far below our expectations. The staff was cold, distant and generally unhelpful. There was no help with the luggage and it would be difficult for elderly travelers. Our reservation included a breakfast which was very limited, tasteless and unenjoyable for most people.

This hotel is so far over rated that it would take a miracle to get it back down to Earth.The rooms are miniscule, poorly laidout and only fairly kept. The staff is willing but seem to be not up to the job.

The only saving grace is location, but I'm sure there are other hotels with location that are better choices

It is very nice hotel...great location and service...clean and specious rooms...To be honest I almost decide to cancel booking when I saw reviews on this site but because of the locations I decide to stay here...
I’m very glad I did because I find a great hotel in Split and I will be back for sure
