My first time in Split and not too many hotels to choose from, so opted for the Atrium after reading TA reviews. Split airport is quite a long way from the City, about a 20-30 min drive and a taxi costs around 250-300 kona. The hotel looks modern and is on the main road out of Split. The reception was the usual open plan space and the check-in was friendly and efficient. My room was at the front of the hotel and surprisingly quiet. It was a large, comfortable room and well equipped, though for British travellers, yet again there is only BBC World on the TV. The bathroom was large and had a full size bath with overhead shower. The wi-fi was free and pretty good and you are given the access code at reception on check-in.
I thought breakfast was rather sparse to be honest, with few hot choices. There were only scrambled eggs available and if there was a cooked to order option it wasn't well displayed. There was of course the usual cold meats and cheeses, but little in the way of fresh fruit either. I had dinner at the hotel though and it was very good, though clearly as I was the only one in the restaurant, most people go out.
It's about a 15-20 min walk into the centre and the Old Town is quite charming so worth a visit if you have time.
My only other comment is with regard to the hotel bar. Effectively it is just part of reception and no effort made to make it into a seperate area. After a days business I enjoy having a drink in the hotel bar before dinner, but here, you are simply sat amongst guests coming or going, and as the hotel seems to attract a number of tour parties, it can be quite a hectic and noisy place.
But nontheless an enjoyable stay and would use the Atrium again if in Split.
