A one night stay's at an accommodation doesn't always lend itself to a fair, accurate assessment, especially if an early departure causes the traveler to take a pass on breakfast. That said, an incomplete assessment is better than none at all, and what this traveler experienced at the Split located Villa Ana was generally favorable.
First and foremost, Villa Ana is situated an easy five-minute walk from Split's most important touristic attraction, Diocletian's Palace. The Palace also happens to be dramatically situated next to the Riva, Split's wildly popular seaside promenade. Admittedly, the Ana itself isn't situated in a highly desirable place (the hotel's tidy exterior clashes with its gritty, forgettable surroundings), but the neighborhood seems safe enough and its proxmity to Split's tourist central is a real plus.
We were given room number one at the Ana. The room featured a rather uncomfortabke though large double bed, an uneven lighting scheme (one corner was noticeably dim), and several windows yet none with views worth noting. Still, there was a mini bar, a large TV (BBC, thank you), and much needed air conditioning. The bathroom was modrn and bright, with nice, attractive fixtures, and an up to date shower installation. In short, the bathroom was the best feature of our room.
We were quite pleased with the service at Villa Ana. Upon arrival, a friendly gentleman provided us with help concerning a taxi ride to the airport, offered us a discounted price due to our cash payment (about $130 US), and he cheerfully responsed to a few other questions concerning sightseeing and our early check out. The service, all told, was accurate and upbeat.
As previously noted, we did not take breakfast at Villa Ana, but should we return to Split (and that sounds like an appealing option), we would certainly consider returning to Villa Ana. It appears to provide serviceable lodging, professional service, all at a reasonable price. The traveler to Split would do well to consider Villa Ana.
