This apartment perfectly suited our needs - very clean, light-filled apartment with all the amenities we needed as a family of 3 staying for a week: full size cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, all in perfect working order. The balcony is bigger than the pictures suggest, and a wonderful place for breakfast, lunch, dinner, wine in the evening, as well as to dry your swim things. It is right on the Riva with great views of the sea and the super yachts (!) but not facing it directly so you still get privacy. The bedroom had enough space for a cot for our little one, which the owners provided even though we'd forgotten to ask for it. It is up quite a few flights of stairs, but we found it fine, even with a pushchair and a toddler (plenty of space at the bottom of the stairs to leave the pushchair for a few minutes if needed, and space enough to store it in the apartment without it getting in the way.)
The location was great - only a couple of minutes' walk from the old town and an incredible choice of restaurants, and within easy reach (15-20mins) of good swimming beaches. Path up to Marjan Hills is only about 100m away, from where you can hike to beaches further away, like kasjuni (40mins) or Bene (50mins) - or if you want to take the bus, the bus to and from both beaches stops right outside the apartment block. The ground floor of the apartment block includes a supermarket, open even on public holidays, which was really convenient.
The hosts were very friendly and helpful, and went out of their make our stay convenient and pleasant. We would highly recommend this place, and would definitely stay again!
I stayed in the Apartment Riva during July & August 2015 & can thoroughly recommend it as an excellent place to spend a vacation.
To wake up in the morning & have breakfast or a cup of coffee on the balcony was sheer Heaven, looking out over the sea, watching all the boats & from about noon - 1pm onwards there is pure sunshine on this side of the building so really good for sunbathing. Having dinner at night was also great especially when the candles are lit & the night view of the West Coast in action is amazing.
The apartment is ideal for a single person & for couples & can provide accommodate for up to 4 people if required.
The cooking facilities were perfect with a full size cooker, (a must in my eyes!), ample pots & pans, crockery, cutlery, cooking utensils, plenty of glasses & cups, a full size fridge freezer & dishwasher. Like being at home!
There is plenty of space in the living & bedroom areas with enough storage but with a great balcony outside, whose staying inside!!
The apartment is within easy reach of the Palace & all its attractions, the Riva, Bavice Beach which has a sandy beach, the Marjan Hills where you have a fantastic view over Split from the Viewpoint...there is also a restaurant there which has a great menu & on certain nights live entertainment, combined with the view over Split whilst enjoying dinner is an experience not to be missed.
The ferry port is 10 minutes away where there are plenty of options to visit other Islands off the coast of Split such as Brac & Hvar.
The Bus Terminal is opposite the ferry where there are many routes to other destinations such as Zagreb & Dubrovnik, & a Shuttle service from Split Airport.
The local buses run from where the Green market is situated.
There is a good size supermarket downstairs to the apartment which was a blessing & a short step away you have a bakers, restaurants, other supermarkets & a pharmacy.
The hosts of the apartment were absolutely wonderful & really went that extra mile...thank you Antonela, Miran, family & friends for making me feel so welcome....you made my stay a special one & I can't wait to come back next year!!!

I was dissapointed by the flat.
on the picture it look very nice with nice view on the sea but the reality is so much different.
the appartment is located in an old building,without lift.
the flat wasnt very clean.
the owner of the flat are very nice and very helpful.
but the main point of the flat is it location, you are close to everything so no need of car!
Antonela was very helpful and flexible on our arrival even when our arrival time was much later than anticipated.
The apartment is air conditioned and very well equipped. It is only a short walk from the Riva and Diocletian Palace and many other bars and restaurants nearby. The apartment has lots of useful maps and information and we really enjoyed our stay in Split and Apartment Riva! Also, very close to the ferry port, bus station and train station! All in all, we had a great time!
