My family and I (teenage children) stayed a few nights prior to our departure on sailboat to the islands and we loved it. The staff were incredible. My luggage had been lost on arrival into Split and the hotel tracked it down for me via the airlines and had it delivered. I didn't have to do a thing. They provided... More

As with all the hotels and attractions we saw on our trip to Croatia, this hotel was clean, quiet, friendly, ideally located and had all the amenities we needed. What stood out for us was the contrast between old and new: that the designers were so careful and meticulous about blending the needs and comforts of a 21st century hotel... More

Dear Ms. McMillan, I thank you for such a lovely review about hotel Vestibul Palace. The idea of the architects at the hotel was exactly as mentioned, blending the needs and comfort of a 21st century hotel with 3rd century existing architecture in order to have the luxury boutique hotel set in the heart of the Roman Palace, UNESCO World...

Located in an ancient property, the rooms are full of character and right in the middle of Split's fascinating old center village. We had an early flight, and the staff arranged for a reasonably priced ride to the airport. The driver showed up with two bag breakfasts! Clean, quiet, comfortable, and everyone is so nice.

Perfectly located to explore the old city center and only a few minutes away from the port. It is a small hotel and our room was superb. Nice sitting area outside of hotel. Food is homemade and fresh. The staff is super friendly and attentive.

We had a super stay here for one night in late April. The location is really special, built into the historic fabric of Split, perfect for exploring both the old town and Riva. We took the hotel's transfer from the airport which was a great way to arrive, especially after an early morning flight. The hotel is of modern design... More

The Hotel Vestibul Palace is not for the feeble (stairs) nor those who like to sleep. The church bells start ringing at 6 a.m. and continue hourly. If you have come to Croatia to tour and to rest, this is definitely not the place for you. While the location is excellent, the rooms are nice as long as you have... More

Dear Guest, I wish to thank you for the review. The rooms at the hotel "Vestibul Palace", situated in the Diocletian's Palace, 3rd century lavishly villa designed for Roman emperor life and retirement, with the original Roman walls, are all different. This is why none of the rooms are completely the same, even if they are the same room category.... More

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
