Expert review of Marmont Hotel
Combining a peaceful old town location with contemporary minimalist design, this hotel opened in summer 2008. In the reception, exposed stonework belies the building’s medieval past, while a shiny metallic lift offers a glimpse of what’s to come: 21 sleek rooms, all with wooden floors, flat-screen TV and black marble bathrooms. And for some sunshine, there’s a lovely first-floor terrace with big white parasols and potted plants.
In the heart of Split’s pedestrian-only old town, between the seafront and the main square. All the city’s main cultural attractions are within a 10-minute walk, as are the airport bus and the ferry port.
The 21 double rooms have oak floors, dark walnut minimalist furniture, comfy king-size beds, and bedspreads and curtains in shades of cream, beige and brown. You also get free WiFi and a spacious bathroom stocked with Pascal Morabito toiletries. On the top floor, there’s a vast (and very expensive) Presidential Suite with fireplace, Jacuzzi, sauna and roof terrace.
Although it's small, I particularly like the breakfast room - a light and airy double height space, combining wood, stone and glass. Above, on a mezzanine, there’s a small lounge-bar which opens onto a glorious terrace with giant white umbrellas and boxy wicker sofas.
The buffet breakfast comprises fresh locally produced yogurt, fruit, warm croissants, and a made-to-order pot of tea or frothy cappuccino.
None, but if you ask at reception they can help you arrange local sports activities such as scuba diving, sailing and white-water rafting. There are two beaches within a 15-minute walk.
The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.
Couples of various ages and nationalities in search of culture, comfort and relaxation. Occasional business visitors.
