“The stars are for the spa”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

We stayed here for a week and were realistic about what they might mean by 5 star, so were not too disappointed. The location isn't brilliant - it's about a 10 minute walk to town - but you do get a flavour for the "real" Croatian experience on the way.

It is a nice hotel and I would recommend it. The room was fine - a good size, clean and comfortable. The TV menu listed BBC in the choices but they didn't have it, although we didn't mind really as we weren't there to watch telly.

Breakfast was a little disappointing. There was plenty of choice - and very eclectic it was too - rice, pasta, tinned peaches, grilled courgettes appeared among the usual suspects of bread, ham and cheese. The problem at breakfast was the room and the staff. the room is large and mostly empty - very little decoration and no atmosphere whatsoever - quite unwelcoming. The staff - who were polite and courteous, if a little taciturn, were totally preoccupied with cutlery and clearing tables and would have been better off concentrating on the buffet. They were primed to swoop down and take your spoon away just as you finished your cereal whilst the juice, milk and pancackes (thank goodness for them or I would have starved!) had all run out!

Based on breakfast, we decided not to eat at the hotel. However, we did order some "cheese and grapes" from Room Service. What arrived was a plate of cheese with broken crackers, walnuts and pretzel sticks - but no grapes, which was a shame.

The best thing about this hotel is the Wellness Centre - a spa complex which includes a good sized pool with jacuzzi area, a very well equipped (but mostly unsupervised and rather untidy) gym, sauna and steam room (out of order). They also do all sorts of spa beauty massage therapy things - we didn't indulge.

A leaflet in reception about Split lists this hotel as the crème de la crème of hotels in Split - I think that's going a bit too far but it was perfectly adequate and the leisure facilities were excellent. There's even a casino if that's your thing.

As long as you take the 5 star rating with a pinch of salt - you won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Stay room only and get breakfast in town.

We stayed at the Atrium when we visited Split. It is a modern property and pretty well maintained. The room given to us was very comfortable, and the bathrooms and facilities were good. Wifi was free and the signals strong. The gym is adequately equipped but only opens at 8am and closes at 10pm unlike most other gyms where they open much earlier and closes later.. The hotel is not exactly near the Riva but only a short taxi ride away. There was a good spread for breakfast. The staff were friendly.

I stayed in Atrium Hotel (room number 210). Actually I have no idea the hotel have good location or not? You need to walk 15-20 minutes to get the old town/port/Riva Area. The receptionist served us without smile, for me it is not good services.
Something wrong with my room, there is a big pillar in middle of room. The light is bad, they combine between yellow lamp and white lamp. This is very disturbing!
The room don't have kettle for tea or coffee.
The breakfast is too simple for 5 stars hotel.
And importing thing is you need pull or push more to close your door, because the door is not automatically closed.
So, it is really 5 stars hotel?
I thing I will think more to back this hotel again

We stayed in Split for 2 nights and are leaving tomorrow morning we have been very happy with the Atrium ,from the minute we drove up the porters were so attentive, the checking in was done with a minimum of fuss, the hotel is about a 15 minute walk from the old city part of Split and we found this part of Split most enjoyable. The room was very big for a European Hotel and the bathroom was very acceptable. The pool which I used twice was a very clean & orderly area, We thought the Overall experience at this Hotel just wonderful and would recommend this Hotel without a doubt

This hotel is very clean. I had a large room and a large bathroom with double sinks. The mattress was very good. There were four nice pillows. I enjoyed the white, fluffy bathrobe which was provided. There was a wall of windows so good light during the day. The light was a little low at night. Very friendly staff. The breakfast buffet was more than adequate. I enjoyed this hotel very much. I was part of a tour group so don't know about the value.

The hotel is ultra modern and stark. The location is ideal next to large shopping center. The bath features double sinks, robes and slippers. A lighted magnified mirror would be a great addition to the bathroom. The night stands are low and the lamps are short with energy saving bulbs - so not really great for reading in bed. The hotel offers free wi-fi. We did not have the opportunity to use the indoor pool. We were traveling with a tour group so I have no opinion on the cost/value.

When we checked in, no one came to help with luggage while there were 4 guys standing at the check in desk.. And when we call to ask the wifi password, the first word that reception said was "what?" I have never seen a worse 5 star hotel. The service is horrible.
