Hotel Luxe is currently rated as the #1 hotel in Split on TripAdvisor, and in this case it very much deserves that ranking. "Boutique" is well deserved in this case.
If you are driving to Split, you will need to pay a little bit of attention to get to Hotel Luxe. A GPS (we used a recent TomTom) will find it on Ulica Kralja Zvonimira -- but it will come upon you quite quickly as you approach the harbour. What you will need to do is drive past the hotel, turn left immediately after that, and then follow the (narrow!) road to the hotel's guest parking lot (car park). This is a few hundred metres (less than 1000') from the hotel, but there are some steps involved, so if your luggage is heavy or you have trouble carrying it, you may want to drop it off in front of the hotel first before parking your car.
Inside the hotel ... the reception was the first taste of the design, and what really impressed me was the attention to detail: every little thing was thought out, and matched the overall design. Furniture, lamps, hallways, even the cutlery in the breakfast area all fit the modern design theme. Kudos to the hotel management for making the effort to complete the experience! The rooms are on the small side, but sparklingly clean, and the bathrooms even more so. However, the sea view is somewhat limited (see photo) as the hotel overlooks several blocks' worth of other buildings between it and the sea.
The hotel is only a few blocks from the harbour, which also hosts numerous cafes, bars and restaurants; the market and Diocletian's Palace are also only minutes away. The stairs up to Marjan (the best park in Split) are maybe five minutes' walk away. For exploring the city, the location really is excellent.
Hotel Luxe wasn't the least expensive choice at about 130 euros, but given its location and the outstanding interior design, it was well worth it.
