We stayed in the annexe, villa Dobric, which was charming, small, very comfortable, quiet, and in a perfect location. But we had the ten star service of the main hotel, which included taking our car to their car park overnight, collecting it in the morning, loading our luggage into it and then taking the car to the queue for the...

Whilst the villas for this hotel is well located and clean, I just couldn’t see the value or the hype for a small boutique hotel I would have expected a little more, the rooms are not that well-appointed, and it was disappointing to see the amount of marks along the walls, which indicated to me that lack of detail, the...

We choose this hotel in spite of some negative reviews here, and I'm glad we did! It's an amazing location. You can walk out of the hotel and you are right where the action is. The minute we checked in we felt us warmly welcome. What we were really happy for was that we got our room immediately after we...

We decided to have a meal here when we were holidaying in split! We really enjoyed! Service was really good & by a very knowledgable maitre de. We ate outside with the hotel lit up & little trendy lights lighting up our table. It is really difficult to know good restaurants when you arrive at a place you haven't been...

This tiny outlet was superbly situated off the main square but one block from all the action. Shockingly quiet, nice staff and clean, cool room. Breakfast was great. A real retreat and perfect for our first days to sleep away jet lag or explore the old city.

If you stay there : do not forget your ear plugs! The location inside the vestibul of Diocletian Palace is just GREAT : you stay in the middle of history and can visit the old city as much as you want etc.... But the counterpart is: very very tiny rooms... and too much noise up to 2 a.m. at least...

Dear Mr. Jaugier, I want to thank you for compliments and sharing your opinion about hotel Vestibul Palace.

I enjoyed this hotel stay. Not your typical hotel, I stayed in another building (not with main hotel lobby, as they occupy two separate properties) and had a two story unit (stairs a little steep in unit for someone with knee/hip issues), but for those with no walking issues it's fine and the room was modern and roomy. The staff...

There are 2 buildings in this hotel, one looks like a boutique hotel whilst the other is much more like a dormitory/hostel a few blocks away. We of course got a room at the later. If you are allocated in the so called "villa" (aka dormitory and there were only 4 rooms in the building) I would highly suggest you...
