“Good Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2006

It was extremely convenient, located just off the water behind the sidewalk coffee shops. They will validate car parking so I was able to park for free near the hotel. The room was clean, and the bathroom was a nice size. They serve breakfast downstairs and had a good selection. They do not have internet, but found a non-secured wireless access at a coffee shop off the plaza next to the cathedral/clock tower..

1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2006

Just got back from a long weekend in Trogir and Split. I would avoid this hotel at all costs. We arrived late Friday evening and were given a small, dirty room. The toilet ran all night but did not flush properly, the carpet had burns and was far from clean. When we complained, we were told that most of the local hotels were full and that we would not get a refund if we left. We only stayed the one night.

The staff was far from helpful. Breakfast was mostly pre-prepared 'packaged' type foods. The fresh fruit was the only good part.

Trogir is an interesting place, but try to avoid it on Friday evening/Saturday morning since that seems to be when many on the cruises and other tours switch over. Walking around Saturday morning it felt like the first day of an adult day camp.

One word of warning, if you arrive at Split airport and are staying in Trogir, have your hotel send a car to meet you. The local taxis refused to take anyone to Trogir, since they consider it too short a trip. We and several others from our flight waited almost an hour for the local bus to take us to Trogir.

We stumbled across Fontana and are so glad we did, we ended up extending our stay from 2 nights to 7. The presidential suite offered us all the room we needed and made the stay that little more special. Nothing was too much for the staff, we would definitely visit again!

We stayed 2 nights @ hotel Fontana in Trogir and it was nice. the hotel is simple, althought not cheap but the double room we had was quite big with a fairly large bathroom (with a hairdryer !) and very clean. The strong point of the hotel was their very friendly staff, helpful and polite. and the room and bathroom were quite big and very clean.
price indication for a double room B&B + extra bed for our son about 95 euros (in september). + free parking if you come by car.
