Paid in advance for deceitful offer, showing an apartment with TWO rooms but in reality we got an apartment with one room and a kitchen with an extensible sofa, acting as "the second room". The offer was being presented with clear pictures of two different rooms but the description conveniently left out the number of rooms. We demanded to get what we paid for, based on the offer but they refused and insisted that the offer is correct, even though we showed them and they saw what the offer contained. I went to the "police" to file a complaint for theft, they came to the location, talked with the guy from the agency and said there is nothing they can do, we need to file a lawsuit for the agency. I asked the policeman to have my complaint officially recorded but he refused, showing me a folded piece of paper where he simply wrote with a pen my ID serial number, saying that "they have my complaint". The guy from the agency admitted that we got duped and there is basically nothing we can do about it, we have photos of his computer screen looking at the FALSE offer and we also recording him admitting we got scammed. After driving around Split at 9 in the evening trying to get another accommodation, the people from our group gave up and returned to stay there. I REFUSED to stay there and wanted to sleep in the car but my wife asked me to come up and spend only that night. In the morning we left searching on foot for another place to stay and we found something 100 times better - cleaner, nicer, better equipped. We were very lucky to find that place. So, again, we got SCAMMED by this agency and LOST THE MONEY. The apartment looks dirty, un-maintained, equipment is extremely basic but is priced higher than what we paid in the other location which, as I said before, looked much, much better from all points of view.
Before getting onto the room I just want to say that the staff here are very nice and helpful. I just wish the room we got was of equal standard. From the pics some of the rooms look pretty nice, however, ours was just not. We were on the ground level so we felt like we couldn't open the windows that often and when we did they were covered with bushes so not much natural light got in at all. The shower room was really grotty, (I've seen some pretty bad shower rooms in my time but this was particularly bad) mould and mildew everywhere and a broken shower door - great. A previous tenant had clearly had a temper tantrum and punched holes through a few of the doors. No wifi - despite it saying the room comes with free wifi. we got told it doesn't work when the weather is thundery, however, it didn't work when the sun was shining either. Not a single mirror was in this place, not to be vain but it would be nice to see yourself before going out for dinner. It was literally packed full of furniture we barely had room for our cases. It seems like a dumping ground for their old furniture which they hadn't gotten round to throwing out yet. I've stayed in some pretty poor places in my time but this is definitely one of the worst. The only redeeming factor about this place was that it's a stone throw away from the centre of town. Like i've said, I'm sure some of the rooms were pretty nice but ours was just not. On reflection I wondered if we got put in this room because we didn't arrive until late at night.
Really a great location but the hotel sadly relies on that and needs to improve in presentation and especially service..they would not even allow baggage storage from a 10am checkout until 12.30pm to accommodate a wait for a boat transfer..the sad explanation by the young man at the desk was 'we had a bag stolen once) ..so if you are carrying luggage around it's not the best option.
We came thinking this was going to be a budget hotel. However it is amazing and we feel like a king and queen in a castle! The staff was very helpful and showed us everywhere to go on the map. And our room on the top floor, looks a we are residing in a posh cabin in the woods. We are so happy with this villa. And it was all by default. The only problem is that the bed is a little thin. Apart from that we will be back next year!
We got a very, very nice apartment in the central of Split on our recently visit. The contact named Christina was very helpful. We came by boat and after 15 minutes walk we reached the apartment house. A big apartment with "winter garden", a large living room with open kitchen, two toilets one on the upper floor with bath, beds for 4 persons on the upper floor. A very nice and spacious apartment well equipped, near the heart of Split.
I stayed in an attic room, this appeared one of the better rooms. Large, good air-conditioning, wifi, kitchen all very good. Only slight downside was it was a little dark but when you spend most of the day outside in the sun this isn't really a problem. Good value for money and only 1 - 2 minutes walk from the Old Town (you can't get lost).
The location for this Accomodation is fine. The standard of the rooms is less than ordinary; old and tired furniture. Our apartment had an overpowering smell of cigarette smoke. We arrived late at night and in fairness they offered us a double room which, when I looked at, I declined, as it was even less salubrious than the apartment. Location is fine. But be aware it is old and tired, no amenities, and you must obviously have to specify a non smoking room.
I booked this property some weeks ago and have had to cancel due to my daughters relationship finishing. I assumed as I booked on booking.com that I was able to cancel the reservation which is after all, not until August 8th. WRONG. I have been informed they are keeping all of our money. This is a disgrace. Be careful using Booking.com and certainly be careful booking Dalmation Villas.
The location is great as it is less than 5 minutes walk to get to the Diocletian's Palace and old town. The good thing is that the front desk is friendly and helpful by giving me a map and tell me how to get to attractions and suggested some places to visit. However, the room is so basic that it only has a double bed in the room, and nothing else. The window can't shut properly so we have to figure out a way to close it. It is quite small that we don't have much space to walk after we have two larger size luggages. It was also quite noisy as i was staying on the first floor. I won't come back again with the condition of the room.
This accommodation is around 30 min from the airport, with traffic. Oliver had contacted me, offering a driver for 300KN. This was well worth it as the driver was wonderful. He gave us lots of information to assist us with our 3 days in Split. The girl who met us was lovely. The room was basic, the hot water did not last for the 3 of us showering. The beds were comfortable.the noise of the other people staying was loud at times. There was a lovely outside area to sit at night to get cool. The accommodation is very close to old split shopping which was great. The breakfast was also basic but good.you have to,walk down the road to get your breakfast. No tea or coffee available in the room. The TV did not work and the WIFi was hit and miss.
