LOCATION
The hotel took up its spot in a residential area in Trstenik where the former Hotel Split once stood. Today it is a fact that premium hotels have to really impress us and this suburban location might just be the biggest downside of the hotel, but this is easily balanced out with quality services and truly beautiful hotel rooms with a view of the Dalmatian islands. On the main traffic artery it is just 3km to get to the city centre and the hotel beach is a hop from the hotel. As a whole it is a solid hotel resort, which has brought a completely new tourist energy into the more sleepy parts of the town.

ACCESSIBILITY
Split Airport is only 22km away and in the summer season it is excellently connected to the main European capitals. Zagreb is almost 400km away, but with great road connections it is very accessible and there is a spacious hotel garage awaiting guests arriving with cars. If the coastal location of the hotel is its biggest asset, then getting to the beach can be pretty problematic, because it leads guests through a slightly untidy campsite.

COLD APPETIZER – Architecture and Aesthetics
Most guests are satisfied with the hotel, although it can seem slightly anaemic in comparison to some regional competitors and it doesn’t leave a lasting impression. The play with colours is something special though, because every floor is painted in its own colour which complements the interior design of the hotel rooms. From an architectural standpoint it could be termed a hybrid hotel, one that connects the main focus groups of the hotel (business guest, city break guests and holiday makers). A bothersome element is an unfinished building standing next to the hotel and also the old unrenovated part, which is a blot on its overall solid image. The landowners are promising to take care of this.

WARM APPETIZER – Personnel and cuisine
After a visit to the restaurant, Radisson has shown that it is culinarily excellent in more than one way. It has a very diverse selection of wine and a solid offer of dishes, which reflect a modernized local kitchen with the influence of current world cuisine. Breakfast, as part of the “super breakfast” standard, is superb. You can easily entrust your congress guests to the Radisson staff, because their catering is also at the top level. As usual with the Radisson chain we recommend the brain food.

MAIN DISH – The hotel’s congress services
In their basic form the rooms are spacious and follow the Radisson philosophy, which means high standard equipment and quality. It also means functionality and a Scandinavian tidiness of the hotel. All of this results in a good feeling when you arrive and the cosmetic supplies are also worth praise. The cherry on top is the Nespresso coffee machines.
There is 660m2 of surface and 9 conference halls available for congresses. The biggest hall is suitable for 380 guests and there are also beautiful terraces and picturesque spots for weddings or private gatherings.

DESSERT – Extras
Two presidential suites on the seventh floor that can also be interesting venues for exclusive congress events.

FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
If the hotel is overbooked you might be accommodated in the old part of the hotel, which is in desperate need of a makeover with a Radisson storyline behind it.

TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
For someone who knows what to expect from a congress hotel, Radisson won’t be a disappointment, especially with its excellent services and staff.

OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
Radisson Blu is an established trademark, which promises an inexpensive and reliable MICE offer. In Split it is something of an ‘amphibian’, one that offers a pleasant stay for leisure as well as MICE guests. Soon after its opening it became a work-horse for Split’s tourism. In the realm of other hotels that are genetically similar to Radisson you won’t be disappointed, because the hotel is packed with the latest hotel solutions and innovation. They have managed to create a hotel that is simply a great choice for congress guests. With various options available in space, anyone looking for a spacious hotel that is part of an international hotel chain will be happy.
