“Great location, great views, average rooms.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This B&B is really all about location. You can't get any closer to Diocletian's Palace than this. Our room overlooked the Riva and the sea, but was surprisingly quiet with the windows shut. Walk out the door, and you are in the heart of the old town.

The staff was friendly, breakfast was typical (nothing hot) European style breakfast, but good. The rooms were average sized, but on the low end as far as furnishings go. If you are looking for 4 star accomodations, this probably isn't the right place. But if you are looking for an affordable, clean B&B steps away from all the action, then check them out!

Room Tip: The entrance can be hard to find, since it's not on the Riva (promenade). You have to go around...

We had a triple room right on the reception floor and had a great view of the promenade and sea. Not next to the reception counter but directly across from it and down a step or two. The only sound we heard was life from the promedade (giant cafe outside with relaxing people) and the ocean. I was so happy with my choice! The check in is a little confusing - you have to walk to the back. The entire building has B&B Kastel rooms so you have to find the right steps up.
Also there is no taxi to the room becuase it is in old town. Not an issue - the streets are easy to navigate but just know if you have luggage, you will be toting. Did not eat the hotel breakfast - it seemed a little pricey compared to what was available at the cafe outside.

We took a late ferry out of Split and they graciously kept our bags and even took the small bottle of wine we left in our frig out and placed it with our luggage.

I would easily stay here again!

Great location right in the heart of Split. Step out the front door and restaurants and sights are right there. Staff are very helpful. Breakfast has variety and is served in a lovely room. No elevators, and the best rooms are three flights up. Rooms are on the small side but very comfy. Would definitely return to this B&B.

Room Tip: Sorry, there is no fitness center, but can't delete rating. Ask for a sea view room as it is wor...

We stayed at Villa Kastel for two nights. We had a great view from our room of the sea and the promenade. The room was nice and spacious and clean and tidy. We left our bags at reception and just took what we needed upstairs. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel was centrally located and a close to everything. The shutters and double-glazed windows were great to shut out all the noise/light of the busy promenade below.

for about €110 (September 2013) you stay in a large room with large beds, TV, refrigerator, safe and incredible views, either of ancient squares or the beautiful seaside. the only (cheaper) room to avoid is the one right next to the check in counter (face right upon check in, No.1 I guess). staff are very kind and speak perfect English. forget about other hotels in Split outside of the palace area as you want be here where it's all happening. bars, restaurants, fast food, entertainment and great people. be prepared to stay up late, life in summer starts after dark due to the heat and it's all here. hotel is 8min walk from harbor, 10 min walk from bus- and train station. I would stay here again tomorrow.

Super place to stay, open the shutters and your view is of the palm tree fringed harbour. A pleasure to sit at breakfast looking at the boats coming and going. Clean apartment, two good sized bedrooms and modern bathroom. No lift so reaching the top floor apartment was a bit of a hike but the views from there were worth the walk. Helpful staff and very easy to find. Would stay again.

We stayed at this hotel in early September 2012 - we are a couple and stayed with one friend. We were looking for an apartment or hotel with two rooms in the same area, which is why we chose this hotel. We were right at the top of the hotel, loads of stairs and no lift to take up the suitcases, but that was expected. Amazing view from the top. Our room was on a massive lean (i.e. the floors!), which was slightly unnerving. With the window shut it blocked out nearly all the outside noise which was great. Fantastic location, right in the centre of everything going on in Split, easy access to bars, restaurants and the sea front. Reception staff very friendly, great service recommending restaurants to us and organising taxi to the airport. Only stayed one night at the end of our stay after a private sailing trip around Croatia's islands for a week. Price was OK between the three of us but seemed everywhere in Split was around the same price, which isn't cheap these days.

Room Tip: For a room with a view choose the apartment at the top of the building (but only if you're not a...
