“Nice B&B experience.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Stayed a night in Split here and really enjoyed the place. Room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was served outside side. Great welcome from Gordon. Very helpful with advice on where to visit and eat. Thanks. Located close to the city centre, about 20 minute walk into the old port. Only problem is finding the place. We were lucky to have a map and good head for directions and did not get lost. Best to let the owners park your car! Throughly enjoyed this night stop off point. Breakfast was excellent.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet. If you have troble climbing stairs you can get a ground floor room. We stayed o...

We stayed one night at the end of September and for those purposes was great. There is no dining room so breakfast is outside. Breakfast was adequate but nothing more; eggs and coffee but pleasant service. We had booked early and had therefore secured two ground level bedrooms, ours in particular was spacious, comfortable and exceptionally clean. I would even say it was charming. Air con was quiet and efficient. Hot water did run cold toward the end of the second shower however. This hotel/guest house is located in a residential area but is an easy walk into town. Overall a good stay and I would definately stay again if I could get the same room. Wi Fi is also available for no extra charge. You do have to pay in cash when you arrive and order your breakfast the night before. We dint meet Ivana but she was very helpful throughout booking process.

We were stuck in a basement unit which was very small with no windows. There were plenty of issues with the place such as the door knob came off in our hands twice, we had to eat breakfast on our lap on the bed since there is no dining room, we ran out of hot water in the shower very quickly and the sink was stopped up so had to limit our selves to periodic use of the sink.

We read the reviews which had a wide range, we soon realized 4 self-appointed starts on their card does not mean anything. Let me explain in more detail than above. We were given the detached unit outside. This unit was a complete after-thought, fulfilling what appeared to be their “get as much revenue as you can out of them” strategy. The room goes down below street level and has absolutely no windows, just the door with a few windows in it. Feeling claustrophobic? It is tiny, about 3m x 4m (~9.5 ft x 12.5 ft) if that. About as much room to bring a small back pack next to either side of the bed as you shuffled around it between the walls. We showed disapproval and they showed us another room that was quite nice but, surprise, they wanted to charge us more.
On the bright side, our room was painted, wall papered, so it was in presentable shape. In addition the air conditioning worked.

There were a few problems with the room as well: The door knob on the bathroom completely came off in our hands twice, so we had to prop it back on. The sink drain was stuffed, so we had to wait for it to go down after brushing our teeth. We could quickly wash our faces, wait for it to go down again then next person gets their quick turn. We used the water very sparingly every time we used the taps. It was only one night, so we figured why bother having him come down and fix it, displacing us for a few hours.

We ran out of hot water in the shower, and it never recovered in the next 2 hours. We had the power on to the hot water heater and saw its red light charging but no luck, so I hope you can take a very fast shower, or like cold showers.

The charge for the tiny room was 540 kn (84 Euro / $94 at time) in the October off-season (far too much for the time room with all the dysfunctions). They will not take credit cards, it’s an all cash business.
They have a driveway abut did not let us park in say ing we should have emailed in advance asking for it (though we told them we had a car. Instead we fended for very tight and infrequent parking on the street.

There is no dining room, no place at all to sit down to eat the breakfast indoor except 3 small tables outside. Our room had no room to sit and eat so we ate on our laps on the bed. Again, this place is not designed for guests to enjoy themselves in comfort, it is about money making first and foremost- squeeze as many people in as they can and maximize the profits!

We spent one night on Split so we cannot recommend another hotel, but we would certainly not recommend this one.

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.
