The most exciting recent entry is the new Golly & Bossy Hostel which bills itself, accurately, as a “design hostel”. The chartreuse color scheme and sleek lighting are young and cheery and the amenities are first rate. I like that each room is numbered with an important date from Split history. Great local pride. There are both dorm rooms and doubles with private facilities available. The big terrace is great for socializing and the balcony has a great view of Old Split.
An ongoing project is the renovation of the old Marjan hotel at the foot of Marjan hill. When opened next year (hopefully) it will be the Marjan Hilton. I’m very pleased that a renovation of the classic Hotel Bellevue is in the works. With high ceilings, tall windows and an enormous ground-floor restaurant, this 19th-century hotel is the only one of its kind in Split. It deserves to be honoured. Rumor also has it that there will be a new hotel near wide, sandy Bacvice beach which is also bordered by a major entertainment complex. Now that should be fun.
