Clean, quiet (once the shutters were closed) and well-located within easy walking distance of the Split waterfront. Though free parking on the street is somewhat scarce, we found a spot just up the street as another car pulled out. In the worst case scenario, there is a paid parking lot just up the street (less than 50 meters away).
We had a room and not one of the apartments. The room, though on the top floor up a tight spiral staircase, suited our needs well. Since we were on the top floor, the ceiling in the bathroom sloped to follow the roof line, but I did not hit my head, as that area was designated as storage space. I did hear the rain hitting the tile roof that night, but it did not disturb my sleep. With the shutters open, we could hear the street noise, but it was extremely quiet with the shutters closed.
Marina (I believe that's her name) at the front desk was exceptionally helpful with getting my cellphone to work on the local network (calling customer support for me and translating SMS messages they sent for support). I think all the guests while we were there spoke English as their first (and perhaps only) language, and Marina's ability to speak to us in English made up for our lack of Croatian-speaking skills.
There are bakeries and groceries very close by on the street (in the downhill direction toward the historic part of the city), and even a convenience store right across the street.
