I had printed off maps from google maps. I had printed off directions from the hotel website. we had a satnav. I knew we couldn't drive right up.
Our stanav brought us to the harbourfront carpark; hubby minded car while I got out to locate the hotel, which we knew was really close. Satnav brought me to a building that was clearly NOT the hotel. I consulted the map and tried again. No joy. I asked shopkeeper after shopkeeper.
At one point I even asked the waiter in what turned out to be the restuarant directly opposite the hotel, and he sent me off on a walk-wild-goose-chase. He must have known! Rivalry???
When we eventually found it, the directions to their carpark involved more hilarity and getting lost.
The reception staff are nice. The room was impressive and modern. BUT things kept falling off.... e.g. the door handle to the flimsy glass door separating the bathroom from the bedroom. You would not want to have modesty issues here!
Breakfast is diverse and tasty, but stay here for a few nights, and you begin to appreciate that they are serving you up last night's dinner left overs - strange things arrive like cold courgettes and aubergines......... Coffee machine ! Awful coffee ! a sin in this part of the world.
This hotel could not be more central. If you want to be in the heart of Split (I can think of nicer places to be) this certainly fits the bill. The room was comfortable and amzingly quiet, given the mayhem in the streets outside.
