Excellent b&b in Split old town, with rooms overlooking the palm-lined seafront promenade.

Where better to wake up than within the ancient walls of Split’s UNESCO-listed old town, with palm trees, open-air cafés, sailing boats and fantastic sea views out front? The rooms here are simple but comfortable, the staff helpful and the prices reasonable.

Location

The entrance is tucked away in a stone alley, one block back from Split’s seafront promenade, in the 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 ten rooms, all freshly painted with wooden floors and beds with wrought-iron bedsteads, plus small but spotless bathrooms. You also get air conditioning, satellite TV, mini-bar, kettle and hairdryer. For families with kids, I’d recommend the spacious top-floor apartment comprising two bedrooms and a kitchenette, with fantastic views of the sea in one direction, and Split’s terracotta rooftops in the other.

Public areas

There’s a small but cosy breakfast room, with a section of the ancient Roman palace wall exposed. Internet (payable) is available at reception.

Eating and drinking

They serve a basic but plentiful breakfast – cereal, croissants, bread, hard-boiled eggs, and platters of sliced cheese and ham.

Leisure facilities

None, but Bačvice beach is just a 15-minute walk away.

Service

The receptionists are kind, attentive and helpful.
