Once you find this hotel - which isn't easy because it's inside the old city walls - you will be pleasantly surprised. It has a very contemporary feel in an ancient building and situation. The standout at this hotel however is the staff. They go to extreme measures to make sure your stay is pleasant and without difficulty in what... More

Prime location and top service. Very nice, small and individual hotel just at the back of the Diocletian Palace. Very busy area during the day, but SILENCE in the night. For me that was a real oasis in the middle of town. Parking is very easy, close to the hotel and the staff will always help you with your car... More

Dear Ms. Elaine, I wish to thank you for this lovely review and the fact you have been thrilled about A Capella singing, which occurs mostly during morning in front of the hotel, and as well said, it's only one of the touches to the Vestibul experience.

Most important point - the best service in 20 years of 5 star travel We stayed for 2 nights in February 2015, we got the Villa Dobric because the Vestibul Palace was closed for renovation. I had chosen the Vestibul Palace because it was actually IN Diocletian's Palace (never having been to Split before) so contemplated changing when we were... More

Hotel Vestibul Palace has a unique blend of history and modern creature comforts that is hard to beat. It's located within the old Palace itself, but inside it is adorned with contemporary furnishings and creature comforts. There is a sense of place even inside, however - parts of the palace walls peek out from various places in the room, giving... More

It is a wonderful oasis in a busy city in August . The concierge arranged wonderful dinner reservations, good gelato ideas and shopping. I would recommend this to anyone. We had an early flight - they arranged a car, made us an espresso at 4.00am and packed us breakfast!!
