The Marmont Hotel (and Ante in particular) were very welcoming. Even though we arrived quite late on the night of our stay, Ante greeted us with a huge smile. He was warm, friendly and easy to have a laugh with.
The hotel itself is immaculate - clean, tidy and modern. Our room was very spacious, with an amazing bathroom. In addition to the standard shower fixture, there was an additional rain-shower-head from the ceiling! You could fit 8 people in there, if that is your thing.
Breakfast was very basic but fine if you're not fussy. We did get coffees made from their coffee machine rather than the drip coffee provided. They were happy to charge that to the room (and it was worth it).
Overall, we would highly recommend the Marmont Hotel if you are planning a trip to Split. It is in a good central position, easy to walk to from the train station and amongst the old town.

We had to catch a taxi to get from our hotel in Zagreb to the train station. Not because it was too far to walk (only a few blocks) but because the rain had really set it. The farmers in Australia would have been doing a happy little jig, it was that wet.
Today lady-luck was shining on us though - our seats on the train were in a six- …
... we would meet another driver, (Hrvje) Henry half way and change over. As Henry was running late we stopped along the way for a coffee. As it turned out our stop was at a coffee shop in Bosnia. There is about 20km of the coastline which belongs to Bosnia so when you drive through you past through two checkpoints where they check your passports and if they want they will inspect your bags as well. They have the right to hold you for up to 12 hrs ...
... guns and dogs. Check! After walking a bit more in the Old Town, we returned to the palm lined Riva for a well deserved beverage. Split is a beautiful and worthwhile port to visit on a Mediterranean itinerary. Tomorrow is a "rest day" at sea, looking forward to a day of chillaxing by the pool with a mocktail or two (for me) and no doubt a couple of beers for Chris. Then we're hitting the Greek islands later this week. Tough life, I ...
... around, I'd definitely advise stopping for at least one night. Had a repeat of the previous night later that night, although was tucked up in bed for half 1 this time.
Had a wander round to the pebble beaches this morning, they looked better than Bacvice but my face had plenty of sun the previous day so decided to get on an earlier bus to Zadar for the last stop of the trip - we're pulling in to the station now. Can't stop thinking about work on Monday. Doom.
... the recent history of the area. We also had to pass through border control twice as the bus intersected the Bosnian border. Lucky we had both passports on us as no one told us we needed them at the bus as it must be presumed you would know this before hopping on the bus.
Arriving in Split was a little surprising as it a/ looked a bit rough and ferral and b/ is a lot bigger than what Dubrovnik looks and yet it is meant to be smaller. The port is ...
