“Excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

The location of the hotel is right off the main square and not very far from where the boats drop you off. It was very easy to find. The receptionist was friendly; hours vary. The room is simply decorated, but has everything you need including a hair dryer.

We stayed here last week and were a bit disappointed by recent reviews. Yes, villa has a fantastic location and apartment is quite spacious but is definitely in need of a refurbishment. Bathroom and kitchen are quite dated, and we had issues with a blocked shower drain and toilet which did not flush. Fortunately staff gave us a discount but we still did not feel this place offered value for money. Would suggest staying at a better valued property perhaps within walking distance to old town, rather than in old town.

Slightly old fashioned in terms of furniture/ decor, but very clean and a great location. Good value for money and good air conditioning. Not a stylish choice, but workable (although our TV didn't work). The reception is closed from 3-7pm (from memory) which is not ideal, but the staff was very accommodating with taking our bags in before check-in time. We were asked numerous times when we were leaving (as in hour, not day), which we found a little grating as we had paid for the room until 12pm checkout, so didn't feel a need to be more precise than that (especially having already paid in cash for the full time) when our plans weren't fixed. This was perhaps a communication issue rather than their desire to get us out ASAP, but felt somewhat hostile.

Easy to find and just off the main square.
My wife and I had a superior room (on the third floor) which was spacious and had a separate kitchen. The stairs can be an issue for some as there were no lifts, but the exercise was good.
The owners (who were friendly) let us have the room early in the morning and even helped us with our bags. We let them know we were going to arrive early.
There was free WiFi in the room which was great.
The only thing lacking was a kettle and toaster.
Definitely would recommend this apartment.

Really easy to find, close to the Harbour where we came off the boat from Split (in street opposite Tourist information). Perfect location in the centre but the double glazed windows meant noise from the streets couldnt be heard in the room. Massive comfortable double bed in the room & fridge which was handy. The lady running it was really helpful and spoke perfect English. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS APARTMENT

The rooms are in a great location, very easy to find. We were on the top floor, up 3 flights of stairs, but this was fine. Obviously there is no lift in such an old building, and we knew this before booking. On checking in the girl on reception offered to help with our bags.

We had a large double room, very spacious, and a lseperate kitchen area. The only thing missing from the kitchen was a kettle and a tooster. The supermarket is only around the corner.

Reception is noted as being open from 3.30 to 7.00.

This hotel is in the centre of town a few steps off the main square. The owners were very helpful and allowed us to leave luggage after arriving on an early ferry and then upgraded us to an apartment, rather than a room on check in. Nicely furnished room with double glazing and efficient air conditioning and a little kitchen with fridge, cooker and small table. Hotel is shut in early afternoon (between 2-3pm in our case). If you can work around that then it's a great place to stay.
