Great modern hotel in a unique and interesting town. There are great small concerts right outside but you can't hear them inside your room. You almost feel as if you are transported back in time to Diocletian's time. I actually liked Split more than Dubrovnik, though that was wonderful also.

A great little hotel ideally located for a short stay in Split. The staff were very friendly and attentive and managed to be omnipresent without being annoying. I stayed whilst visiting Split on a business trip but I plan on returning to this hotel with my family.

The bedroom and accompanying bathroom was tiny.The staff were very helpful in everything we needed. The breakfast was good. We had dinner at other restaurants.Recommended for a city centre hotel as it very central and near all the central attractions. It was a little noisy.

Stayed here for two nights at the end of December.The hotel is very modern inside.The rooms are comfortable but there was nowhere to really put a second large piece of baggage. The bathroom is large but the bath is not easy to get into and out of and there is nothing to hold onto to make this any easier (Beware...

I stayed in the Villa Dobric, which is part of the hotel but in another location in the Old City. Rooms are good though small (apart from the bed one couldn't really fit anything else in) and bathroom was well appointed. The small breakfast area is downstairs, and one day breakfast was provided, while on another day we had to...

Great small design hotel located within the Palace walls - perfect location to explore the tiny streets of the old city. Our room was on the top floor (#7), very calm and quiet. Nice design with an ancient stone wall, super comfy bed and great bathroom. The staff are excellent and very accomodating. We arrived very early in the morning...

I stayed here last year and the hotel is as I remembered. Ace location in the Emperor's palace, friendly efficient staff, good rooms, first rate breakfast, decent supper, free use of an internet laptop. This November I stayed twice. On my second trip I was given an upgrade to a suite. This was a quite magnificent double height room. One...

What a great hotel! We had trouble navigating to the entrance of Diocletian's Palace. When we called from the other side of the palace, the hotel sent a person to guide us in.

Dear Ms. BeannieC, Thank You for such a nice review and such a nice overview of the hotel.

Tasteful design hotel in Diocletian's Palace. I loved the contrast with the bustling, ancient streets - the way back to the hotel takes you through the Peristil and Vestibule into a lovely old square, and when you step back into the hotel it is quiet and calm with muted colours. My room was extremely comfortable, with all the conveniences you...

Dear TravelTaavi, Thank You for such a tasteful review. It is a truth once You get from Peristil, main square of the Diocletian's Palace, to Vestibul, former courtyard of the Emperor, where the hotel is. Being located in the area reserved only for the gods, it is pedestrian area and therefore hotel staff members help You get from the parking...
