One the cusp of the UNESCO-listed old-town of Split, we found a chic oasis – the perfect base to explore this unique and ancient city. Set in a refurbished old factory, it’s clear that the hotel owners wanted to bring a slice of Milan, Paris and NYC to Croatia’s second city. The minimalist interior is an interpretation of Phillipe Starck, but with flashes of bright, Adriatic inspired colours. Breakfast is a treat.
