“All around lovely hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We stayed at Hotel Eden from June 27 to July 3 and absolutely loved it! We had the apartment on the top floor with two bedrooms and two bathrooms which was perfect for our family of four. The view was beautiful. The rooms were modern and extremely clean. The staff is super friendly. The restaurant was good as well. You have to try the green pasta and seafood dish...just delicious. The hotel was in a good location, only a few minutes walk to the beach and a convenient bus stop if you need to head into downtown Split. It was quiet in the evenings which was nice when enjoying the sunset and evening on the balcony.

The staff here were by far the friendliest we came across in Croatia. This hotel is easily accessible from the centre of Split, on either the local bus, or better the local mini buses, at least running every 30 mins. Great views over the bay from the room and heaps of choice for local beaches. The food here is great, heaps of breakfast selection and definitely worth staying for dinner. Would recommend staying here over the old town for value for money and peace and quiet.

We stayed here for 5 nights and loved it! Large, clean modern rooms with fabulous aircon (we had a heatwave during our stay so this was an absolute godsend). Very quiet in our room, which faced the sea. Very quick walk to the beach. Generous and tasty breakfast buffet. Dinner from the restaurant reasonably priced and good quality. The multilingual staff were among the most friendly and helpful I've ever encountered; they did everything from explaining the local bus system (easy to use) to giving us pointers for day trips. Will definitely return!

Room Tip: Take the 'presidential suite' if you can afford the upgrade - definitely worth it for the go...

Dear Trippers,

Me and my son visited Split for two days. This hotel is just a short bus travel away from the centre of Split. The bus which is very close to this hotel takes you there for 23 Kn. We took the taxi back to the hotel for 110Kn. So its not that necesarry that you take a hotel in the city centre of Split. The room was good and very clean. Nice bathroom with no bath but a pleasant shower cabine. Staff is very helpfull and friendly. Breakfast was very good taken care of and plenty things to choose from. There is also a nice beach near this hotel. Walk down the stairs and you will find yourself on a path to a beach walking to the right and an other one walking to the left.

Enjoy your stay in Split like we did! And thanks to the former review writers of this hotel!

This hotel is around 20 mins away by bus from the city of Split located in Podstrana. The bus stop in to Split is two minutes from the hotel. Coming back from Split, the bus stops right outside the hotel (12 Kuna per jorney). We were given a free upgrade to a seaview room. The rooms were very clean and well maintained. Good hot and cold breakfast available. The pebble beach is 5 mins down some concrete stairs, to the left, your 5 minutes away from the nicer beaches near the Le Meridien hotel. The staff were very helpful especially Goran. We used the hotel as a base to to vist split without the hassle of trying to find parking, to visit the island of Brac and the ancient city of Trogir. Spent three nights at this hotel. Would Have given 5 Star, but the free WiFi would not work in room and the mini fridge was a little weak. Highly recommended.....

I used to come to Croatia regularly as my ex-wife was from here, and I also used to DJ a lot in the area. This hotel didn't exist back then, but I'm so glad it does now.

The rooms are all modern and comfortable, with a fabulous view back across the channel between Split and Brac.

Yes, it's 10 minute drive back to Split, but really, you can see the city in a day, and if you stay in a hotel in the city you'll be kept awake all night with noise from the bars, and the value for money compared to the central hotels far excedes the inconvenience of a taxi ride.

The beaches are standard Croatian rocky affair, but you can either opt for a quiet area near the hotel, or move to the beach at Le Meridien, or go past that to an even nicer one.

The Meridien is no more than 100m away, but you wouldn't know it, however if you feel the need for a bit more action it's fun for a night to have a cocktail at their champagne bar and look at the big boats at their marina. There are three supermarkets within 5 minutes walk for snacks, cheese, ham, beer etc....

However, when it comes to dinner, I cannot recommend the restaurant at Eden highly enough. The breakfast is a bit poor, very average ham and cheese and some fruit, but don't let that disguise the fact that the kitchen can produce the most wonderfull Dalmatian dishes in the evening. Yes it's a little expensive, but the seafood, salad, blitva, is as good as I've tasted anywhere. The lady who provides live music is terrific too.

I'd originally planned to stay for only 4 nights before heading to the islands, but was so happy with the food and room I stayed for the whole 2 weeks.

The only reason I give 4/5 instead of 5/5 is that I was moved to a neighbouring hotel twice to accomodate large group bookings, as they have some issue with online bookings, but as a solo traveller was happy with the compensation for the inconvenience.

Don't let that put you off though. It's a great hotel, in my many visits to the region my favorite by far.

I'd like to thank Matko, the owners son who manages it, and made me feel so at home, and Ante, the restaurant waiter, and a proper star in the best Dalmatian way, for all their hospitality and service, and I hope to see you all next summer.
