“Perfect location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This boutique hotel is well located for easy touring around Split. It is very quiet, good room size with a clean well appointed bathroom. The breakfast included was complete with many choices. Highly recommended if location is a priority

This hotel boasts a five star rating, but I did not experience anything close to that level of service or atmosphere. Marmont's décor is described as minimalist. In my travels, I have learned that this is code for lacking amenities, specifically in this case: no dresser, no drawers, and one of my biggest pet peeves in newly designed hotels, no towel racks in the bathroom.

The rooms are small (270 square feet) and the doors require a good tug to close. Housekeeping must have forgotten about the tugging, because our door was ajar after they dropped off our laundry.

The view is mediocre – tiled rooftops are okay to look at, but they obscure the nicer view of the walled Old Town or the Adriatic (depending on your vantage point). Marmont does have a good location, at the edge of the Old Town and within a five minute walk of the harbor.

Breakfast is adequate: cold cuts, assorted breads an pastries, poured yogurt, fruits, hard boiled eggs and cereals. All food is pre-packaged grocery store quality (though European grocery store quality is higher than its US counterpart). The two hot items, scrambled eggs and hot dogs, are not worth eating.

There is no gym, The staff is okay, not overly attentive but not dismissive either. Housekeeping did a slight lower than average job cleaning the bathroom. But, in fairness, the counter top choice of green glass with a raised sink that splashes water everywhere, makes it a hard room to clean well.

My overall impression of Marmont isn't that it necessarily did anything wrong. It just didn't do anything overly right.

Room Tip: See if you can get an un-obscured view

Excellent location for visiting the first class restaurants in the neighbourhood (especially to the north). Everything worked in the hotel. Friendy and helpful staff. WiFi worked better in the lounge than in the room. The breakfast was lovely, rich, and healthy. The premises are modern and in good repair. Everything seems to work in Split and you can drink the tap water. Only tea bags in the room so we bought freeze dried coffee in the nearby Coop (Konsum). However, we had afternoon coffe in a nice Budapest type of café in the adjecent square. We had a wonerful week in Split in mid-May. We can really recommend Marmont Hotel.

After 6 days of cycling it was a wonderful surprise to find this small boutique hotel on the edge of the Old Town of Split. We were able to store our bikes in an outside area with the help of the very friendly staff. The rooms are large, well appointed and extremely comfortable. The hotel is tucked away from the bustle of the shopping area and has a very relaxed feel about it. The staff could not do enough for you and were very attentive to all our needs.

Room Tip: There are not many rooms in this hotel but all are fantastic. It doesn't have a pool which in Au...

We had a very lovely stay at the hotel. The hotel was small, but very modern and neat.
The staff was friendly and very helpful.
The rooms and bathrooms were very nice and modern - which made up for the size.
The location is very good and ideal.
I will definitely recommend this hotel.

We only stayed one night at this very nice hotel, but it was great. It is located inside the Diocletian palace, so right in the middle of downtown/old town Split. The room was very nice and modern, the atmosphere was very relaxed and the staff very helpful. As it is located so centrally, there are plenty of places to eat within minutes walking distance. The hotel cooperates with Splittours, so we were offered to be collected at the airport and taken to the hotel, incl. an electrical cart from the old town limits to the hotel as no cars can drive inside the old town. The price of this was only slightly above taxi, and then you have to walk with your luggage through a hot and crowded square and narrow streets. They also picked us up the next morning and drove us to the port for our ferry to Hvar.

Spent 2 night here 7/13. Clean contemporary room was small with an awful bed. Nice bath and ok breakfast. Staff was invisible.The staircase to the rooms was immediately to the left of the entry door. The desk clerk is in the rear of the narrow center entrance hall and never made an effort in 2 days to lift her head to watch the door; so any stranger with ill intent could enter and go directly to the rooms to make trouble. Only a room key card stands between a guest and trouble. This is an awful security situation, no matter how safe Split may be.

Room Tip: go somewhere else
