This hotel was selected by G Adventures when I toured with then. The hotel is not terrible but the location relative to the old city is very poor. A 20+ minute walk, through a neighbourhood with lots of graffiti, up a long hill (on the way back). If I was booking myself I would have never chosen this location. So that does impact my view. The location problem is exacerbated by the fact that Split does not have an efficient bus service (such a Dubrovnik does). So if you go set aside a little of your budget for cabs, which are generally quite available.
The rooms and decor are spare, but not unpleasant. Decent size. The hotel is generally clean with a comfortable size bathroom. It seems that they use a cleaning product that makes the hotel smell like Old Spice cologne. Outside of the lobby wifi is spotty at best. Breakfast wasn't great.
Reception staff were polite and generally helpful. One odd thing that seemed to "enhance" the smell of the hotel. The day we were leaving the lobby door was open and there was a pleasant breeze outside. The receptionist got up, I expected to open another door or window for a nice cross breeze. Instead she sprayed what seemed like Febreeze on a few spots on the curtains then came over and closed the open from door. not terrible but kinda weird.More
