Expert review of Hotel Slavija
I used to live around the corner from this hotel, and it’s a part of Split I really love – a warren of stone alleys with lots of buzzing bars and open-air cafés, within the walls of Diocletian’s Palace. Entered up a grandiose half-flight of Renaissance steps, the building dates from the 17th century and has been a hotel since 1900, making it the oldest in town. Fully renovated in 2004, it now has 25 basic but comfortable rooms.
Hidden away within the walls of Diocletian’s Palace, in Split’s fascinating old town. All the main cultural attractions are within a 10-minute walk, as are the airport bus and the ferry port.
Rooms here are comfortable but not luxurious, with modern bathrooms, good air conditioning and satellite TV, but no mini-bar. The problem of noise from surrounding bars has been resolved with the installation of double-glazing, though of course that only works if you keep the windows shut. Or go to bed after the bars have closed - around 2am in summer. The nicest rooms are up on the top floor, and have spacious terraces with views over Split’s terracotta rooftops and the cathedral bell tower. Some doubles below also have small stone balconies.
There’s a small functional breakfast room off the reception area.
Rather basic but passable breakfast.
None, but if you ask at reception they can help you arrange local sports activities such as scuba diving, canyoning and white-water rafting. Bačvice beach is just a 10-minute walk away.
The staff are friendly and helpful, and happy to share their knowledge of the city.
Those who want a simple but comfortable central location, close to Split’s main cultural attractions, plus a buzzing nightlife.
