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.
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.
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.
None, but Bačvice beach is just a 15-minute walk away.
The receptionists are kind, attentive and helpful.
