Fantastic location right in the heart of the city. The service from Kate and Ivana was excellent. Very friendly and helpful. Our rooms were ready when we got there 3 hours before check in time so we were allowed straight in. The room itself was furnished very modern and cosy. Free WiFi was a great asset. The TV showed English channels for those late night try to wind down moments. The shower was powerful and hot. The room was quite small but thats because it is where it is. No complaints about that whatsoever. It is a 10 minute walk from the bus stop (Airport bus cost 30Kuna - £3.50 in May 2013 - for half hour journey straight to Ferry port side of town).
Great value for money ( about £55 a night for two people in May). Would DEFINITELY stay here again.
Split is a lovely city but wonder what it might be like at peak season in the summer. In May, the weather was great (70degrees+) but we did have a torrential downpour the first day we got there.
We were looking forward to some great meals but were a bit disappointed on this front. Meals tended to be quite bland. We had our first meal in an upmarket looking restaurant but the Tuna steak and chips was just that. No frills. Nice but not the best. Oh well. The amazing location of the restaurants and bars more than makes up for it though. Quite cheap as well. A .5L + .3L of beer came to anything from 26Kuna to 50Kuna (with 8.1K to the pound) Fantastic ice cream came to less than a pound. A breakfast of 2 cheese and ham 'toasties, coffee and half pint of fresh orange came to 44k (£5?) on the main people watching square. Bliss.
TIP - When going back to the airport by bus, make sure you book your ticket at the Ticket office. We waited in line at the 'Airport' lane at the bus depot only to luckily find out we were in the wrong place and had to buy the ticket in advance!. Also, this bus was a more 'local' bus and went around the houses to get to the airport and made lots of stops. Took nearly an hour instead of the direct Croatian Airlines bus of 40 mins.
