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.
Eating and drinking
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.
