Booking.com site 'in the Art Restaurant exceptional gastronomic pleasures of domestic aand international cuisine.....'
No, On arrival we asked to eat in the restaurant. We were told the restaurant is available only for pre booked parties.
When we pointed out what the site said the reply was 'The guests complain but there is nothing we can do'
So if you stay here expect a 20 minute hike into the centre if you want to eat,

We stayed here for only one night. The front desk woman was very nice, friendly, and helpful. The room was sort of outdated, but fairly clean, normal size. The price was right. The lobby was quite social. This is probably a great hotel for single travelers. The best thing about the hotel was the breakfast. The location was a bit far from town, but walkable.

For $197.73 with a so-so location, there isn't great value for the money spent. On the other hand, it has to be one of the best hotels in Split, and all the pluses from the other reviews are true: great breakfast, clean, large rooms, a/c that works.

If they could move it closer to the port, and lower the price by $50 my opinion would improve vastly.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2008

We stayed in the Art Hotel for 2 nights. The rooms were spacious, clean and the bathrooms were a good size. The rooms were nicely fitted out. We found the reception staff, and all the other staff we encountered to be quite friendly. Another positive is that the hotel provides free internet access in the bar area.

The location of the hotel is in an area which seems a little seedy. Split is quite dirty, and the streets particularly around the hotel are filthy. This is surprising as the other cities we visited in Croatia (Dubrovnik and Zagreb) were a lot cleaner in comparison. As our room was located on one of the lower floors, it became noisy on one of the nights as Croatia had won a game in the Euro Football Cup which was on during our stay. It was quite noisy all night with cars constantly beeping horns, as well as a lot of noise from the streets below.

It is a 15 minute walk from the Hotel to the Old Town. We only did this during the day, and I can't comment as to how safe it would be walking back from the Old Town in the evening.

Breakfast was a good selection, however as a previous reviewer mentioned there were no bread rolls or even slices of bread to make toast! Also, the coffee at the buffet breakfast can only be described as awful. It was not drinkable at all.

The staff at the reception recommended a restaurant around the corner which was very good and of a high standard. This restaurant is definitely worth a visit. We can't recall the name of the restaurant, but the first word was something like Stari.

The hotel also seems a little expensive, and we're sure we were charged more than what we were originally quoted when we booked the hotel. When we were checking out, we were in a rush to get to the airport so we didn't have time to query the bill unfortunately. A word of advice is to allow enough time when checking out to check the bill carefully in case of any problems.

Overall it was a pleasant stay at the hotel, although I don't think we'll go back as we see no reason to visit Split on holiday again. If you do have to visit Split, I would recommend this hotel.

  • Liked — Well appointed room, free internet access
  • Disliked — Location, the coffee at breakfast.

We are 10 days into a 17 day trip to Italy and Croatia. This hotel is the cleanest hotel with the most modern ammenities we´ve experienced so far. Emaculate, contemporary rooms. Free internet. One of the best breakfasts too! The walk to the old town & water is 15 minutes (which was a bit far in cold weather). The cold weather is preventing us from venturing out to Boc or Hvar so visiting Split without enjoying the islands is probably not worthwhile -- at least for us.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2007

I have just spent 2 weeks travelling around the countries that make up the former Yugoslavia and got to Split at the end of my trip.

I had been warned by colleagues at work that Split was a bit of a dump and not that great, so decided to at least book into a nice hotel. I knew it was a bit out of the town centre, but having checked the map didn't seem too far, and as a single traveller was watching the costs a bit.

The reception staff were helpful, the room was lovely and airy, great bathroom, comfortable bed a little balcony (although it didn't really look out on much, and a tv with some english channels - although the Croatian channels are in English with subtitles.

The walk to town is probably 10 mins fast walking, but it is possible to take a bus. The #37 bus to the airport goes from just outside every 20 mins and only takes 1 hour (to save trying to get the Air Croatia bus from town which doesn't link with the other airline timetables).

Had it been in the city centre I would have rated it excellent - but that's a personal preference.

  • Liked — Clean, new, modern.
  • Disliked — Would have liked to have been in the centre.
