We loved this hotel. I'm a book lover, so we greatly appreciated all the good books about the lobby. Despite its contemporary feel, the hotel is designed to incorporate its ancient walls into the design. We enjoyed it. The breakfast was just average in a cramped little room.

This was my second visit to Split but my first stay at the Hotel Slavija. I was overwhelmed with the level of service and the quality of the room. It is the 3 star hotel but I have visited 3 star hotels in Europe and this is far more than just 3 stars Hotel. The room has an understated elegance... More

We stayed here before (2 nights) and after (1 night) our Hvar excursion and thoroughly enjoyed it. Customer service was excellent before we even arrived and throughout our entire stay. From arranging private airport transportation to purchasing ferry tickets early in the morning so we could sleep in to the hotel staff, everything/everyone was fantastic (especially Mirjana). We did the... More

This hotel is in the heart of the old city. While visiting we learned that it is the oldest hotel in Split with some construction dating to the 12th century. The interior is completely renovated with all the latest comforts and amenities. The key advantage to staying in the old city is that the ambiance and all the restaurants are... More

Get detailed directions to get here because it's difficult to find. Thankfully, everyone in Croatia is super helpful. My husband and I just returned from 10 days in Croatia and I had found Hotel Slavija on Trip Advisor. We didn't have reservations but THANKFULLY they had a room available. We even had our own terrace! The hotel was super modern... More

We arrived by bus and GPS had a heart attack, chose the wrong gate to enter the Diocletian palace to find Hotel Slavija, and we climbed an unnecessary million steps (The Hotel is very easy to find, take the second main gate!) We then missed the half step into the foyer, and she fell flat on her face into the... More

We stayed in this hotel and were very pleased with it overall. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is well located and the reception staff were extremely helpful in helping us secure out tickets for the boat to Hvar. They sent someone to get our tickets at 7am for the days ferry without any extra charge. Over and... More

We were on a small group tour and did not know ahead of time which hotel we would stay at in Split. At the same time, we knew that some hotels here are located within Diocletian’s Palace, a 4th-century UNESCO-protected cultural monument. Imagine our surprise and delight when our guide led us to Hotel Slavija, a modern establishment tucked right... More

My wife and I received endless amounts of help from the staff at the front desk, from getting around and enjoying to making sure the remainder of our trip outside of Split went smoothly. Location was also right in the middle of the action (not wild, but lively). Rooms were very nice and clean. Would definitely stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Slavija is type of a heritage hotel due to its location, history and protection by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and UNESCO. The Diocletian's Palace was built in the middle of the 3rd century AD, while the Hotel Slavija was built inside its walls, above the Emperor's western baths. Therefore, it can be concluded that the building of the hotel influenced the protection of the Baths from the devastation. With time the building of the hotel expanded, and from the Baroque palace it became today's Hotel Slavija. Hotel Slavija is under the protection of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia, and in part is protected by the UNESCO. The location in the very center of the town makes Hotel Slavija an ideal choice for a stay in Split, surrounded by all relevant historical buildings of the city of Split, including the Temple of Jupiter, the St. Duje Cathedral, the Milesi palace... It is ideal place for both business and pleasure travelers because of its location. Hotel is situated in the very center of the city and is but a few minutes walk from all the major attractions as well as from the main bus terminal, airport shuttle terminal, railway station and ferry. The hotel has 25 rooms and each room is air conditioned, with private bath, hair dryer, satellite TV, Internet connection and direct dial telephone. Some of the rooms are with terraces and Hotel is especially proud to present them because, terraces are rarity in the old part of Split.
