Could not ask for a better location, service or accommodation. Edita, Ivan, Leo and both Josephs treated us with wonderful hospitality. Edita and Ivan went above and beyond to ensure our time in Split was perfect. This boutique hotel has only 5 rooms, which allows for the staff to provide such exceptional service. From dinner reservations to car rentals and everything in between, they made our stay so special and memorable. The location is perfect! Breakfast is wonderful and there are many options from which to choose. Our room was lovely and had a very comfortable bed. Highly recommend this hotel and we hope to be back soon. Thank you again to Edita and Ivan for making us feel so welcome!

Cardo is a small boutique hotel with the perfect location in Split. It is not only a few steps from the very center of town, but the personnel are extremely attentive and cares for every detail to guarantee a rewarding stay. When we arrived by car, Edita came to meet us and even carried most of our heavy luggage along the stairs that must be climbed to reach the hotel. She and all the rest of the staff that we met showed a respectful and at the same time very friendly “service-oriented” attitude that made our stay memorable. Breakfast is taken in a restaurant that is some 80 meters away, where every morning our table was ready and included plentiful share of bread, juices, yogurt, etc. and was also delicious. One night, when we went to meet a Croatian friend and we stayed late with her, they called from the hotel to my mobile to make sure everything was OK with us since we had gone in our car and they wanted to make sure we have had no problems with the way!. There is 24/7 front desk service, which is a great thing for such a small hotel. The hot water was plentiful and they quality of the amenities excellent, as well as the quality of the towels. The windows are properly insulated, there is an electric kettle in the room and various teas available. Highly recommended!

Hotel Cardo is a small hotel in a great location within walking distance to all of the main attractions in Split. Rooms are decorated in a Victorian theme with very comfortable beds and a spacious bathroom. The front desk is very friendly and our interactions with Edita were extremely friendly and helpful. We had an incident which required a doctor's attention and Edita and the hotel management team stepped right up and made sure we were taken care of. The made an appointment at a local doctors office and provided transportation to get us there. We were so grateful. I would highly recommend the Hotel Cardo!

Went to Croatia with no plan and was recommended to stay our first night at the Cardo. The hotel is tiny and central, an amazing refuge in the heart of Old Town Split. Ivan helped us with everything on our trip, and continued to check in and provide help and recommendations long after we left the hotel. The guy is a hero and you would do yourself well to start your Croatian adventure here.

I really can't say enough about our stay at this hotel. The rooms absolutely out-of-this-world gorgeous and the staff is amazing. They're so knowledgeable about the area and helped us book/recommended almost everything we did -- including reservations at the best restaurants. Ivan in particular was a godsend. I unfortunately left my phone in his golf cart (which he drove us in to the boat we were taking to Dubrovnik at the end of our stay) and he had a staff member drive 3 HOURS to bring it to our new hotel in person. Incredible. If you're planning a trip to Split DEFINITELY stay here. My husband and I had the best honeymoon and will definitely be returning.

My family and I traveled all through Croatia, staying in 6 different locations and this hotel was by far my favorite! From the moment we arrived in Split we felt very well taken care of... from Ivan arranging a car to pick us us at the car rental location, to drinking the delicious and homemade liquor (and chocolates!) upon arrival, to having our luggage taken to our room on the third floor, to the delicious included breakfasts, to the sweet conversations with the small staff, to the soft sheets, clean, large and well appointed bathrooms, (just writing this review makes me want to go back!), to the excellent private walking tour arranged for our family, to Ivan escorting us with our luggage to the ferry terminal and putting it on the boat for us and taking the time to find our girls to say goodbye who had gone to find seats, to just being in the center of Split and not even realizing it since it was quiet and peaceful- it was all magnificent! I wish we could have stayed in Split longer because I loved the energy of the city and the Palace and the thoughtful and kind staff at Heritage Hotel Cardo. Thank you so much for helping make Split so memorable for us.

Comfortable, quiet, despite its central location within Diocletian Palace complex, friendly, great for restaurants etc, beautiful room and excellent breakfast at the restaurant downstairs. Great recommendations for excursions, especially the Croatian designed 100 kph electric bike tour.

My friend and I had the pleasure of spending three nights at the Heritage Hotel Cardo. They easily accommodated us at the last minute and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is beautiful and there is attention to detail from the staff, to the rooms and to the decor. The Diocletian walls in the bathroom are stunning. The entire room transports you to a different time as the furniture is carefully selected and it clearly shows. I cannot begin to applaud the staff, especially Bruno, Ivan, and Adita. They were all very attentive and they enjoyed their job and helping their guests. They were there to assist from making recommendations and reservations, to providing food for a day trip, in addition to being a great source of knowledge about Split and Croatia. Ivan even paid for the transfer of our luggage to the parking garage so we would not have to carry our heavy bags. The breakfast was also great, a la carte and buffet. Overall it was an amazing experience and we will definitely return to Heritage Hotel Cardo and highly recommend a stay. The hotel opened approximately a year ago and it is an undiscovered gem that has a bright future ahead. You will not be disappointed!
