“Chain Hotel...if that's what you want”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Radisson Blu for 3 nights during our stay in Split. We used it as a jumping off point to visit Hvar and other surrounding towns, islands.
It was very clean, very massive, and rooms were nice. If you are looking for quaint and boutique...this is not the place for you.
Be sure to ask for a room in the newer/main part of the hotel - the wing facing the ocean is super dated and dank.

The breakfast buffet was massive, something for everyone.

If you plan to go to Old Town, take a cab - cost is10Euros each way but its worth it and takes half the time as the bus route. The bus line takes 30mins to get to Old Town and its just a dirty experience.

The location of the hotel is nice just outside of Old Town. The beach area is great way to spend a sunny afternoon - just be prepared for the walk back up the stairs to the hotel. And there is a great trail you can use for a jog along the water or to walk to Old Town (about 40mins).

Room Tip: Be sure to get a room in the new/main part of the hotel - the ones in the older part of the hotel ar...

As you enter the hotel you experience the cold and stark environment. We have stayed in so many beautiful and quaint hotels in Croatia that this seems like a cold business hotel that could be anywhere. The carpets in the room are stained, the walls spotted and the bathtub caulking is moldy. For a hotel just remodeled 3 years ago is shows a lot of wear and tear. We had a Sea-view room, which is partially blocked by an unfinished concrete Hotel that looks like it has been in this state for quite a while. The walk to the beach is along a concrete passageway, by dumpsters and a long way down the stairs to the beach. There is not much around the hotel but big Apartment complexes. It is definitely a hotel catering to tour groups, business travelers and sunbathers.
The wasp problem makes sitting outside on the terrace for breakfast hard to take, even in the middle of September. The staff does not seem to care or do much about it. For the price I think I would look for a smaller hotel in town next time.

My wife and I stayed here recently on one leg of our honeymoon. We had travelled up to Split from Dubrovnik and to say we were glad to arrive in Radisson Blu is an understatement. Split does not make a good first impression with many gang signs and gang slogan on the streets leading into the city centre.
Upon our arrival we were told that we had been upgraded as the hotel was full for the night and it simply made our day. The room was immaculately kept with a breathtaking view over the Adriatic. The following morning, breakfast was a continental one, simple and delicious. As we were getting the ferry to Italy that night, we decided to lounge by the pool and the hotel were most accomodating in storing our bags and allowed us to use all of the facilities.
I could not praise this hotel highly enough
Keep up the good work

This is an spacious hotel, with grand rooms (some with a view), a wonderful breakfast buffet and decent spa amenities, although closing a bit early (9pm). Not at the heart of split - about 3 km, which is a good thing. The tour agency was a little bellow our expectations, given the overall hotel quality. The beach facilities, although a short walk, is a great alternative for relaxing from busy sight seeing.

I was fortunate enough to stay at the Radisson Blu Report in Split while traveling in Croatia. The hotel was wonderful and the staff was amazing! I travel extensively and this is the best trained and most helpful hotel staff I've encountered! I was upgraded due to my Club Carlson Gold membership. The room was beautiful and I had a balcony and ocean view! The hotel is very modern in design and many of the elements are minimalistic. Over all, it's a great place to stay, and access to the old city center is an easy 10 minute cab ride.

We were lucky enough to be upgraded free of charge to a deluxe seaview room with balcony for our 2 nights stay. Not sure about the giant seashorses as the room decor and the layout of the room. Nevertheless, we were happy.

Breakfast time was full of choices. There was a chef to make you omlette or a fried egg.

I am suprised that there was no little conveinence store on site as the hotel is bit out of town.

Anyhow, a good place to relax either by the pool or on the beach. There are a few resturants within the hotel so you won't go hungry!

If you could teleport the hotel out of its current surrounds and plonk it on a nice beach, it would greatly improve the overall experience. While sitting beside the fabulous pool, or on the stunning terrace, it's hard not to notice the shells of half built and derelict buildings surrounding you from every viewpoint. We were upgraded upon arrival, and our room was very comfortable with a large balcony (although not a very pleasant view!) Our welcome at check in and check out was very professional and friendly.

Unfortunately, the food was a major disappointment. As it's not very easy to leave the hotel to go to another restaurant, you are more or less confined to the food on offer. We ate in 'The Caper Grill' and I have to say it was one of the most unpleasant meals I've been served in a very long time. If you have to eat on the premises, skip the restaurants and eat a club sandwich on the terrace. The draught beer also tasted as if the lines were long overdue a clean. Service away from the front desk was slow, not up the usual Radisson standard, but still polite.

To note, this is a 'resort' hotel, it's not in Split, and it's not really within walking distance to Split.
