“perfect for us”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

Right on the bus line to old town. Can walk to "hotel/restaurant row", which we highly recommend you do - there's a great pizza place with fantastic "black risotto" (a Dalmatian specialty).

Staff is friendly/helpful, especially the patio waiter.

Didn't try the pool or ocean.

It's quiet.

Room Tip: We sprung for ocean view with sitting room. Didn't use it much, but we were glad we did.

Me and my partner stayed at the Hotel Splendid. We paid around £45 per night for our room with breakfast...so £22.50 each. I was nervous that the hotel would be bad as this was an absolute bargain price.

Upon arrival we received a friendly greeting at reception. Our double room had huge bed. This was very comfortable. We had a balcony and a lovely sea view. This was a delight to wake up to each day. The decoration is not fussy and the furniture is all simple and functional...very good.

DUTV (channel 5) had 24 hours a day footage of the Stradun (main street) with music. This was amusing but provided nice music whilst getting dressed etc to go out!

Every member of staff was friendly and greeted us as we went in and out of the hotel. The breakfast buffet had a good selection. The bar was good...the bar man was very debonair...like James Bond. Very lovely man too.

The hotel is dated...but the service was wonderful. To be honest the fact it is not too modern and trendy is part of its charm. Who needs widescreen TV and WiFi in every room when in such a lovely part of the world?
In the evenings there is a cave bar a short walk from the hotel and a nice cocktail bar. We enjoyed returning each evening and having a tea (or beer!) in the hotel bar.

We purchased bus tickets for 12 Kuna (about £1.50) from reception and within ten minutes were outside the walls of the old town.

A few highlights (so many to choose from)...walking the walls, sea kayaking and the cable car and the magnificent view and bar at the top).

People watching in the old town is a must...especially the cruise customers. The best bar in the old town was the Soul Caffe. Relaxing place to visit after a day exploring.

I would come and stay at Hotel Splendid again and would recommend it to others without hesitation.

Lovely hotel, a little dated which made it kind of charming. Very helpful and friendly staff, I was very amused by the very smartly dressed and tall bar man who reminded me of James Bond.
Myself and my girlfriend had a lovely stay, all the rooms seem to have a sea view, only 10 minutes on the bus from the city centre. Recommend!

We stayed in the Hotel Splendid for one week in October. The overall feel of the hotel was a bit dated, a bit 80's, but very clean and the staff were friendly and helpful. We stayed half board, the breakfast had plenty of choice, including cereal, cold meat and cheese, scrambled eggs, bacon, boiled eggs, sweet pastries and fruit. The evening meals we only sampled twice, prefering to find our own eating places in Dubrovnik or Lapad. The food was varied, but I would say no more than typical 3 star fayre.
The position of the hotel was good, with lovely views accross the bay. Every room had a sea view, but the sun never reached the balcony because it was behind the hotel. I didnt like the fact there was a charge of 30 kuna for the hotel sunbeds (no swimming pool) but I think this is commonplace in Croatia.
The one small thing I would say to improve the stay would be to have tea/coffee making facilities in the room.

I arrived in the dark following a long bus journey and a long walk from the bus station (40 mins walk - too far with even a small suitcase!) not knowing where I was going to stay but headed towards a cluster of hotels in the Lapad bay.

I carried on to the end of the road and decided I would stay at this hotel provided the rooms were reasonable. The first room I was given, although it was a double room with a sea view at a very good rate had a musty smell to it. On investigation, I looked at the ceiling and that appeared to have some damp issues and I asked if they had any other rooms available which they did. The next room also had a peculiar smell to it but one that I could put up with for a night. The next morning I woke up to a beautiful view from the balcony and that was followed by a good breakfast. The location of the hotel is great, quite a long way from the Old Town but it depends what you want from your holiday. There are very regular buses that pick up from outside the hotel I understand. The room was big and reasonably clean although one of the lights didn't work but that was all. I found the staff were pleasant and helpful and I though was stay was short, I enjoyed it and would stay again.

When you get almost drowned in the many hotel offers you find even at TripAdvisor, sometimes is difficult to make a choice.

This one was good: simple hotel, reasonable room, but at the end everything was nice.

Worth to try it.

God bless you.

Room Tip: Do not take the lobby level rooms.

Hotel splendid may not have a lot of extras but its simplicity presents a clean, genuine hotel experience. The hotel is located on a beautiful point and its breakfast more than sufficient offers the same. Its a bit away from the action, but yet close enough that one can walk or taxi it without too much sacrifice. Definitely would recommend this hotel for a cost price for a clean, Croatian experience.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra to get a balcony view over the Adriatic!
