“Nice, comfortable hotel”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

I stayed here as part of a Rick Steves' tour. It's a business style hotel that's about a 10 minute walk from the top of the Old Town and another five minutes to the waterfront. The walk to the old town looks a little seedy, with walls covered in grafitti, but it is a residential area and I had no worries at all as a single woman walking by myself at night. I was in room 304, looking out the front of the hotel. There's a small Tommy market (grocery store) just across the street and a small mall another 10 minute walk in the opposite direction of the Old Town.

Dear,
Thank You for being a guest of Hotel Globo.
I'm glad You felt safely in our neighborhood and City of Split.
Yes, You have absolute right about graffiti, there is a lot of them in our City of Split and sometimes I can find them as a piece of art but unfortunately most of the time they make me feel sad because it makes ugly picture of the City with a nonsense sentences on the walls.
Hope to meet You some other time in our Hotel and wish You all the best,
Regards,

Navigating Split, even with a Garmin, is not an easy thing. After searching for a Rick Steve's sobe recommendation for an hour and not being able to find it, we literally stumbled/drove up to this hotel. The woman at the front desk was so lovely, patient, kind and accommodating, and made us feel at home after a hectic hour-long drive throughout the city. The rooms are good sized, great bathroom, comfortable beds and roomy safe. The downsides were polyester bedspreads and a garden-level room (they do have an upper floor). The complimentary breakfast buffet was one of the best I've had in Europe.

Room Tip: Ask for a 2nd floor room

The Hotel Globo is ideally situated in the city of Split, a 10-15 minute walk and your in the Old Town, or at the shopping centre or at the base of Marjan. It is also very close to bus station and police station.
There are plenty of shops, cafe's and bakery's near, as well as pharmacy's and local shops. Right opposite is a Tommy supermarket. You definitely won't be without!
The hotel is quiet, my room was ideal, it had blackout curtains, and the bed was great! I would have preferred a bath, but the shower was excellent.
The staff are polite and very helpful.
Breakfast is good, plenty to choose from, cooked, cereals, continental, juices and hot drinks etc.
The rooms were clean, towels changed daily. It could have been vacuumed daily, twice I did it myself why the cleaners were on lunch!
I had a pleasant stay and would recommend the Hotel Globo. I will definitely return.

The staff at the hotel were very helpful and courteous, and the breakfast buffet was great quality, however, my room was dilapidated and in need of renovations. The room size and the bathroom was big, but the furniture, carpet, and bedding were old and threadbare. The location was in a safe area and it was very easy to walk to the harbour area.

Thank you for your review, and we are happy to hear that you were satisfied with a service in our hotel.
Probably you were staying in the room on one of the floors that isn't renovated yet, but we have that in plan for this winter, so we hope that you will come again to our hotel and stay in newly renovated rooms.

Best regards,

We stayed at the Hotel Globo Split for two nights as part of a Rick Steves tour. While it claims to be a 4 star hotel, it is more of a 3 star, as expected for the tour. The surrounding area is a business area that is currently experiencing some tough economic times. There are a lot of vacancies in the surrounding buildings, so it is a bit of a quiet "desert." Proved not to be scary, though. The old town and the harbor are about a 15 minute walk, so the sights and the action is close.

A downside was the reception staff that smoked incessantly (seems normal for Croatia, unfortunately), so the lobby was not a very pleasant place to spend any more time in than necessary.

The hotel is characterized by a high standard. Check-in went very quickly. He immediately got the key to peace. Noteworthy is the quality of the materials from which made ​​finishing in the room. Bed very comfortable. The bathroom in addition to the standard equipment found another towel. We used the hotel restaurant and I am generally satisfied. The only downside may be that the food portions are very small. In addition, all very good. Note that the surrounding area is interesting and very pretty. Staff speak English. I recommend this hotel.
