“Clean rooms, great cakes, and helpful hosts.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We stayed in the Villa Vice for 5 nights in September 2012
The Villa Vice is just far enough from the city so that noise and vehicle fumes can be left behind, but near enough to walk to the sights, the beach and the city centre within a few minutes. Quiet and suburban streets. Ask the very helpful hostess (Ivana) about the best walking route to the city on old pedestrian streets. We also had several restaurants recommended to us, and were offered help to book excursions.
Our apartment was well equipped for self-catering, but with breakfast provided, and with so many restaurants in the city we didn't use the kitchen equipment: although being English we wanted tea, and boiled water in a coffee-maker as there was no kettle.
Our apartment was very clean, with almost everything in it giving the impression of being good quality and new. We had a bedroom, almost totally filled by a large bed, a kitchen/living room, and a bathroom with shower. Effective air conditioning which we used on the first few days when it was very hot.
Breakfast was served in the garden, with omelette, fresh fruit, home-made bread, and home-made cakes. It was good. On a couple of days we had breakfast served in our room as the weather became wet & windy.
We asked for help booking a taxi on the day of departure, but the owner kindly gave us a lift to the bus station for our onward journey.

Room Tip: Our room was on the lowest floor, which was almost a basement. So no view, and it felt a little clau...

As others have noted, this is a small apartment style hotel, perfectly located in a quiet, safe residential area. An easy walk to both the town and beach provides a chance to see Split without using a vehicle. We cannot say enough good things about the owners. They were so helpful, and sincere about wanting their guests to have a great holiday experience. My husband is still raving about the perfect ham and cheese omelets and home made bread that Ivana made for us each morning. Breakfast was served in the sunny, peaceful, private yard .. a very pleasant start to the day. We found the apartment very quiet, clean and comfortable during our 4 nights stay in early September. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Villa Vice for one night when we first arrived in Croatia. The hotel has a small car park, plus there is parking in the road outside, which is useful. There were three of us and we had a 2 room studio. The two connecting rooms were small, with a small kitchen, and a dining table, there was no sitting area, so I wouldn't really call it an apartment. The bathroom, however was large. As we were only staying one night it was fine, but it wouldn't have been comfortable for a longer stay.
When we arrived we were asked to pay straight away and also asked what we wanted for breakfast, and what time we wanted it. Luckily the next morning we arrived at the stipulated time, as our breakfast was already on the table. I found this quite bizarre. Another table arrived late, so their breakfast must have been cold. The other tables had fruit, but we hadn't been offered this. They did bring extra coffee when we requested it. Breakfast is served in their back garden, so it was a pretty setting.
It takes about 10/15 minutes to walk into the old town, and it's a fairly pleasant walk, although ask before you set off, to make sure you are going in the right direction.

Room Tip: Quiet area, so probably doesn't matter where your room is. No lift.

I strongly recommend to stay here during your vacation especially with kids. Your personal breakfast, amazing garden behind, clean rooms and this is not the end. The owners gave us useful advices which restaurant to visit, where and how should we go. The atmosphere here was so well-wishing. Next time we’ll stay exactly at this place.

We stayed here in late May 2012. As soon as we booked we got a confirmation email from Ivana and she was very accommodating. Gordon and Ivana were great hosts who made excellent breakfast every morning and would basically make whatever you wanted them to. Gordon showed us where to go in Split on a map, and pointed out great restaurants and bars. The hotel is a 10-12 minute walk to Old Town and 5 minute or less walk to Bacvice beach and all of the bars and clubs there. Perfect location, very clean room, quiet at night, air conditioned, and very kind hosts. Highly recommended.

Villa Vice is a charming little Nook in the midst of an old Split neighborhood, run by very gracious hosts. Our room was impeccably designed, clean and very pleasant. The villa is conveniently located very close to the harbor & local beaches. Diocletian's palace & the open market are a short walk west. The hosts are well connected locals who were always happy to assist with information, directions or suggestions. We will definitely be back!
