This was the strangest holiday hotel I have ever stayed at................
Rooms themselves were fine (although bedding polyester not cotton) but the location and facilities are awful. It's in a residential area that reminded me of the Elephant and Castle in London. The hotel looks big, but it only has 34 rooms and the rest of the builiding is residential. The facilities are non existent. No bar. No restaurant.No room service. I am absolutely amazed that this a four star hotel - I would struggle to give it two stars. The atmosphere overall is slightly depressing and reminded me of an anonymous business hotel that you can't wait to get away from.
Breakfast is served in what feels like a conference room. Very average and also very weird. We were the only guests there and the waitress decided this was a good time to scrub the floor.............
I would only recommend the hotel as a stop over before travelling elsewhere. It's about 10 minutes from the old town of Split but the area is ugly, with high rise buildings and graffiti being the order of the day. Split is beautiful for a weekend visit but I would highly recommend staying in a two star hotel in the centre over Globo.
I stayed in Spit after 10 days in Hvar and the beaches in Split definitely nowhere near the paradise we encountered on the island. 2 or 3 days here for sightseeing and shopping is sufficient but I wouldn't recommend Split as a beach holiday destination. There are plenty of good restaurants in Split - "Chops" in the old town was really nice. It's also shoe heaven - I have never seen so many shoe shops and have now some Croatian shoes to add to my collection!
