Expert review of Hotel Peristil

Elegant little mid-range hotel, within the Roman walls of Split’s UNESCO-listed old town.

Where better to wake up in Split than between two of its most popular attractions, the cathedral and the colourful open-air market? Hotel Peristil, which even includes a section of the ancient Roman palace walls, has just 12 rooms – the best ones have views of the cathedral bell tower – and a restaurant with a lovely front terrace where you can eat breakfast on sunny mornings. The hotel stays open all year, so makes a good option for winter breaks too.

Location: 

Within the walls of Diocletian’s Palace, next to Srebrena Vrata (Silver gate), in the heart of Split’s pedestrian-only old town. The airport bus and ferry port are just a five-minute walk away, and you can reach all the city’s main cultural attractions on foot in 10 minutes.

Bedrooms: 

There are 12 comfortable rooms – nine doubles and three (rather small) singles. Expect peachy cream walls with some exposed stonework, wooden floors and subtle lighting, plus air conditioning and free WiFi.

Public areas: 

The ground floor Tifani restaurant has a functional dining room plus a glorious terrace for outdoor dining, which is romantically lit at night.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast (included) is a feast – freshly squeezed juice, yogurt, fruit, bread, eggs cooked to order, and excellent espresso. The restaurant also does an a la carte dinner – I strongly recommend their Dalmatian seafood specialities.

Leisure facilities: 

None, but if you ask at reception they can help you arrange local sports activities such as scuba diving, sailing and white-water rafting. Bacvice beach is just a 10-minute walk away.

Service: 

Warm, welcoming and helpful reception staff. Good waiter service too.
