We stayed 2 nights at the Kastel and were very pleased with it. The location can't be better -- right on the Riva promenade and harbor waterfront of Split's old town, near Diocletian's Palace. Access to the hotel is from the rear, via a side street off the Riva, through a public square, and down a little dead-end street. The entrance to the hotel is up a flight of steps from the street, a bit of a hassle with luggage. Our room was on the same floor as the lobby/reception desk. It was a triple room (which we had reserved even though we were only 2 people because it was the only type of room available when we reserved.) The triple room was large and on a corner of the building, with nice views out onto the Riva and waterfront and also onto the side street. The room was very nicely furnished and clean, and the excellent soundproofed windows kept out all noise from the streets. One small issue was that the towels smelled faintly of cigarette smoke.
The reception staff was extremely friendly, spoke excellent English, and was very helpful. She told us of a place we could park our car for free on a little dead-end residential street only a couple of blocks away. This saved us a lot of money we otherwise would have had to pay if we had left our car in the very expensive public lot right on the Riva.
The continental breakfast was good enough, served in the hotel's breakfast room that shares a wall with the Palace. However, breakfast is extra cost (50 kuna/person/day) and is overpriced for what you get, but more convenient than seeking a cheaper breakfast in the city.
Overall we highly recommend the Hotel B&B Kastel 1700 for a stay close to all the sights and restaurants of old town Split.
