“clean and good value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

the staff was very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean, we got free wifi in the lobby, the breakfast was ok. the hotel is about a 10 min walk to the center, which isn't bad. i would've stayed somewhere else if i found other hotels with decent reviews closer to the center that were not too expensive. as someone else mentioned, the beds were a negative. we got a room with 2 single beds pushed together instead of 1 big bed - this was a little uncomfortable. the location and cleanliness were the best things of the hotel!

The hotel is in what we classified as a questionable area, we did not feel safe walking around it at night, so some nights we would have to catch a taxi home and that is 100 kuna. The rooms were average but were clean, the manager was fantastic, more than happy to help. Next time I would choose a hotel closer and in a safer area.

This small hotel is good place if you don't want to spend to much money for accommodation. Location is bit out of city center, you will need at least 10 minute walk to the city's Riva promenade and tourist attractions. Rooms are big and very well maintained. Staff was very helpful and nice. Hotel is surrounded with apartment buildings so it is very hard to notice it until you are in front of it. Would recommend this hotel for short stay if you get good rate. Hotel have private parking.

We only stayed at villa marjella for only one night, and for that it was enough. While we had stayed in three and two star hotels in Europe. This was one of the worst. When we arrived the staff were very helpful and kindly took us to the room.

As a couple we took the twin room. However what we got was two single beds pushed together, they didn't even have double sheets. It was two singles with the single sets of linen. Very romantic and loving as you could imagine.

The bathroom was an alright size but when we had a shower after 5 minutes the water ran out, this was at 8am. The hotel had good wifi reception and we didn't have breakfast so we can't comment on that. The location is the best part of this hotel but I struggle to find any others.
Our room was quite small only could fit the double bed and barely our suitcases.
Would I recommend this hotel to anyone, probably not.

This month, while travelling throughout Croatia, we stayed at the Villa Marjela in Split. We were booked in 3 star hotels throughout Croatia and were satisfied with all of them except for this hotel. When we drove into the area in front of the hotel we were greeted with trash, weeds, and broken glass strewn around the area. After being greeted in a dismal lobby, we went to our room and found no towels and no glasses. We were told that it was because it was the weekend and we could expect towels in 24 hours!! We were never given a clear answer about the lack of glasses. There was a television in the room which had no channels available (not even Croatian channels.) There was nowhere to put luggage, and we had to put everything on the floor and live out of the suitcase for 2 days. After having lovely breakfast buffets in all of our hotels in Croatia, with some of the best coffee we have ever had, we found instant coffee, some unsavory bread and sugar cereal with bananas for breakfast. We ran to the closest coffee bar for our coffee. Upon returning to the hotel after a long day of sightseeing in wonderful Split, we had to walk the 15 minutes from old town through a very unattractive part of town and as the lot in front of the hotel has no lights and broken steps, we did not feel very safe entering the premises. Fortunately the lovely town of Split provided great days, but returning to the hotel in the evening spoiled our stay in many ways.

Room Tip: i only saw our room and our friend's room #7 and #10, and i would not recommend either.

Hotel location is app. 10 min walk from city centre. In the area had some construction works, but that doesn't disturb. Hotel itself is clean and comfort, some rooms are quite small, but if you get bigger room, you get same time superior accomodation. Aircondition works well in every room. Stuff is very friendly and helpfull, they had allways a litlle smile in their face. The breakfast was OK.
I would say, this is worth of money.

We stayed here for one night and we came by car. With a good road description you will manage to find it. The rooms are rather small but clean and are equipped with private bathroom, aircon and fridge. The Wifi also did not work. The staff however is very friendly and helpful, especially when it came to explaining the best way to the port and Diocletian palace. Breakfast was OK. In the evening (instead of staying in the room), we went to the beach nearby, about a 10 minute walk and enjoyed a drink and the sunset on the pier. It was also very easy that we could park the car next to the hotel for free. Never mind the appartment blocks, you know you stay in a city.
