We loved our stay at Vestibul Palace. The service was great. the first night we ate in the hotel restaurant, and the food was lovely. We enjoyed walking the narrow streets of the old city, and hearing the Clapper singers outside our window. If we ever return to Split, we would certainly stay here again. We stayed in the suite...

I did not have the pleasure of staying in the Hostel Vestibul Palace but was saying in a small Air BnB room right next door, but this place was amazing. I had sprained my ankle the day we arrived in Split at Plitvice Lakes and I thought to ask if they would possibly give me some ice to help with... More

We spent 8 days on sail Croatia coming off the boat into this hotel was like heaven. Staff are wonderful and extremely helpful. We were able to get room service both nights which was great. They also transferred us to the airport without a hassle. It's a bit pricey but worth the money!!!!

This is a hotel that everyone needs to visit and experience. From the friendly staff to the location in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, the luxury holiday house of the last Roman emperor Diocletian! How decadent! We were spoiled by the service and had a wonderful time! Breakfast in the palace surrounded by so much history... More

There is nothing like waking up in the morning and peering out the window to see Diocletian's vestibule right there! The room was exquisite, with all of the amenities one would expect. An added touch was the delicious fruit dish, much appreciated after a long day of travel. The staff could not do enough to make our stay more pleasurable.... More

This place looked much better on the photos than in reality. It needs some refurbishment if it is to be sold at these prices. Staff is very nice and polite but not extremely knowledgeable. At times they seem very confused. All in all, still good, but expected more for the price.

The hotel is right at the heart of Diocletian's palace, an ideal situation to visit Split. All the sites are in easy walking distance. We arrived by car and, with difficulty, found a parking spot in the public car park on the quayside close to the Bronze Gate of the palace. Then while my wife sat in the car loaded... More

We stayed at the Vestibul Palace on the 9th May and 17th May and our stay was such a pleasure and memorable experience. We came to think of the staff as friends during our stay and cannot praise them highly enough. They were very helpful and took the time to talk to us about the local customs and history. The... More

Me and my husband spent a night here last febbruary. We stayed in and anex part of the hotel. This was not a problem at all. The annex part has a great location in the Diocletian palace. I think they have just 4 rooms there. The room was small but had everything we needed. The bathroom was nice, clean and... More

We were driving to the hotel, and because both buildings are located in pedestrian zones, it was necessary to phone the hotel and liaise with them about what to do with the car. Unfortunately we were tired and a bit irritable so the three phonecall process that it took to be directed to the carpark and be met by hotel... More
