Hotel Name: Apartments Tomisa.
Address: Julia Klovica 28, Split, Croatia.
I stayed at Apartments Tomisa in Split, Croatia. I booked online at the rate of €30 per night on Booking.com, which includes apartment rentals like this in their listings. For this booking, I was just looking for a cheap room without too much concern about the location. I was staying in Split for over a week so I didn’t need to be in the city centre.
I saw exactly on the map where this was, and I estimated that it was about 20 minutes walk from the city centre. That is about the maximum I would normally allow. What I didn’t account for is that it is uphill all the way and that the street is on a hill with a weird road layout. The quickest access to the road is via an overpass on a nearby main road. I went up the wrong way the first time, so I had to go down and up again with my bags.
The apartment is in a truly residential area.
It was only when I arrived that I considered that I might need to prearrange someone to drop the keys off. Luckily someone was there in another apartment to hand over the keys.
I got a private apartment to myself. The apartment is on the top floor, and technically it is a 2-bedroom apartment.
The main bedroom was just long enough to fit a bed, and there was just enough room on the side of the bed for placing my bag.
The bathroom was also tiny. I left my toiletries outside the bathroom as there was nowhere to place them. I had to squeeze through the door to get to the shower.
Ther is a little kitchenette opposite the bathroom, which I used to place toiletries.
There is a second bedroom, which is basically the width of a large single bed inside the roof cavity.
In between the two bedrooms is the main living area, which had a table and chairs. This was a pretty good area to work in, and the apartment had a good internet connection.
My favourite area was the balcony that is in the cavity of the rooftop. There is a siesta bed there, so I made the most of that when I would come back from a solid half-day of wandering around. I was here in September so it was perfect weather for relaxing outside.
There are some cafes and bakeries nearby for breakfast, and I went to Slatko for this great breakfast set.
Overall the apartment ended up being just a bit far from the city to be convenient (though I knew the distance when I booked). I also ended up spending my time remodelling the apartment in my mind. There is enough floor space to make this a comfortable studio or 1-bedroom apartment, but the two tiny bedrooms and tiny bathroom just made it unnecessarily annoying to be in.
