4 star hotel

4.4

Chic modern hotel in a renovated 15th-century stone building in Split’s historic centre.

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.

Location

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.

Bedrooms

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.

Public areas

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.

Eating and drinking

The buffet breakfast comprises fresh locally produced yogurt, fruit, warm croissants, and a made-to-order pot of tea or frothy cappuccino.

Leisure facilities

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.

Service

The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

Who stays there

Couples of various ages and nationalities in search of culture, comfort and relaxation. Occasional business visitors.
