As always thanks to Trip Advisor we chose the Art House Hotel based on previous recommendations, - an again we were not disappointed, The Art Hotel is absolutely fantastic, the photos on TA are spot on, the rooms are extremely spacious for a Town Hotel, the furnishings are elegant and modern, the Wifi is really good, and the location is bang smack in the middle of Zadar, you literally could not be more central, there is always lots going on due to the superb double glazing when its time for sleep you literally cannot hear anything (and we went when the world cup was on (and Croatia was playing)).
In terms of the restaurant, the breakfast is second to none, ask for anything and its yours, omelettes, fruit, cereal to eggs Benedict – silly thing to applaud but the orange juice and the coffee are outstanding. The evening menu is to die for, everything is top draw and holds its own to any 4-5 Star Hotel I have stayed in. Another thing I would like to applaud is the Patisserie – I am sure that both my wife and I will regret eating a slice of cake at the end of most nights but seriously the cake that is available is a little slice of heaven – if you have a sweet tooth you MUST try them.
But the thing I wanted to commend, which is the one thing that really stands out is the staff, they are absolutely fantastic, literally could not do enough to make your stay as memorable as possible, honestly nothing is too much trouble, from Yusuf on the front desk extremely friendly and welcoming, Ivan also on front desk the most chatty man in Croatia (in a very good way) Maria in the morning who cannot be more helpful, and Big Ivan out front, not only an awesome guy but probably the best salesman in Croatia – you ask for something, he always has something better to offer you (very funny guy). The whole team is outstanding and truly made our stay something we will cherish for a long long time, both my wife and I would like to thank those guys SO much we really enjoyed ourselves.
In terms of Zadar, really cool place to visit, do visit at least one of the national parks they are breath taking, other than the Art House restaurant, Brucetta is defo worth a visit (arrive early as they get busy) Good tip for Zadar, make sure you take enough money before you arrive the ATM machines are EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE we are talking a 10% charge PER transaction.
I would highly recommend a visit.
