What makes it special?
The décor. It’s different. But good different.

Housed in a former steam-powered factory, Hotel Luxe is probably the jazziest hotel you’ll find in Split. It certainly stands out among the traditional buildings that make up the area.

Whether you’re visiting Split for leisure or business, the hotel’s location couldn’t be more convenient. You’re steps away from the ferry port, and both the bus and train stations.

What’s more, Split’s main attractions are right on your doorstep, so it makes an ideal base for exploring what Croatia’s second-largest city.

Rooms and amenities
The 30 rooms have bags of character, thanks to the funky furniture, colourful mood lighting, mirrored surfaces and striking wall art. The guestrooms are spacious, and most have sea views which is a rarity in Split.

You’ll find all the amenities you’d expect of a luxury hotel, like Wi-Fi, high-spec TVs, minibars, fluffy robes and so on.

If you’ve hired a car, you’ll have access to the hotel’s secure parking. There’s also a full-service spa and a small gym which is free for all hotel guests.

There’s no restaurant at Hotel Luxe. However, the lobby bar serves drinks 24/7, and you’ve got plenty of options along nearby Riva port. The hotel can, however, do lunch and dinner for groups if ordered in advance.

All rooms include access to the breakfast buffet, which is a generous mix of local dishes and more traditional breakfast items like eggs, cereal and croissants.
