0.05km from Pingvin SplitMy partner and I booked a 5 night stay at the Spolato Luxury Rooms 11-16 Sept 2019. In advance, reception were kind enough to send over walking instructions from the Rivera to the Reception (as the rooms are located in old town, this is pedestrian only area). They did offer to book a cab from the airport for us, however we chose to use Uber which works out cheaper! I definitely reccomend using Uber, and put in your loto be dropped at the Rivera as this is a short 5-7 min walk to the reception. Reception were rather helpful responding to questions in advance, such as do the rooms have a hair dryer? (of which they do, a small travel style one). Nicola our lovely host met us at reception, offered to carry our luggage on the short walk to our room. (It is noted the rooms are located in a square in the old town, it is as advertised more an apartment style than hotel). The room on arrival was clean and well presented. A safe is in the wardrobe. The bed was SUPER comfy and the room came with a great mirror and dressing table area. Bathroom has great shower and includes little lavender toiletries from a local spa (lavender is popular in split as it is grown here). Thought that was a nice touch! A kettle and teabags were provided, but NO COFFEE which was disappointing, so we filled up at breakfast! Nicola gave us a map and circled out key locations for us, such as the location of the local restaurant that includes your breakfast, and where to go to look at excursions he recommended etc which was very useful! As mentioned, breakfast is located in a local restaurant a short 2 minute walk from the rooms. A lovely restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating. Offerings are of a breakfast buffet, however our waiter was kind enough every morning to make eggs fresh on order as a little extra (scrambled/omlette/with bacon etc whatever you want). The buffet includes a selection of hot and cold sausages and ham/salami meats, fresh chopped tomatoes/cucumber, cheeses, sliced brown and white crusty bread, hard boiled eggs, mixed vegetables, fruit salad, cereals, yoghurts, mini cakes, jams, juices, homemade smoothies and tea/coffee. We were sceptical based on reviews before our trip, however I and my partner were very satisfied with both the food and service! If this is not the style of food you like - either book a hotel or opt out of breakfast! There are many local establishments to the rooms that offer breakfast menus, we stayed with the inclusion as we enjoyed it so! The same waiter looked after us every day, got to know our orders and was one of the best waiters we dealt with while our trip in split! Overall we had a fantastic stay and you really cannot beat the location. You are a stones throw away from EVERYTHING and it meant we had less travel time and more activity time throughout our stay. HIGHLY recommended! Thank you Nicola and the Spalato Rooms!
