“Great hotel, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

My wife & I stayed at Villa Varos for our two nights in Split. We had stayed in apartment-type rooms for the rest of our stay in Croatia, so Villa Varos offered a nice comparison as more of a hotel (albeit not a luxury hotel). The room was clean, spacious enough, and reasonable value considering it's a mere 5 minute walk from the Riva, 10 minutes from Diocletian's Palace. Joanne (the owner) was extremely helpful in providing activity and restaurant suggestions, and went out of her way to help us book an early morning cab ride to the airport. The only negative (mentioned by other reviewers here) is that the hot water heater capacity only lasted for about a 5 minute shower, so if you take longer showers than that, be prepared.

Stayed here with three friends August 2013.

We had two double rooms both of which were clean, comfortable and good value for money.

Reception were really friendly and helpful and pointed out some great restaurants and bars a short walk away.

5 minute walk to Diocletians Palace along Riva

My wife and I stayed at Villa Varos in the apartment on the top floor. It is great , especially for the price. The flat is large, bedroom, sitting room small kitchen and balcony, great for breakfast . The wifi worked very well as did the air con. It is in a great part of the city, close to everything, only downside for some is there is not a lift so bags have to be carried. In our case the son of the owner carried the heavy bags.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the flat if available .

We only stayed here for one night on a stop over between travelling from Hvar to Dubrovnik. The room was quite small, but ideal for one night, with good air conditioning and a comfortable bed. The bathroom was also spacious with a good shower. Everything was really clean. The owner was lovely and met up with us on arrival to show us up to the room. The location is also excellent, a very short walk from the heart of Split.

Tucked away off to the side in Split, place is a short 10 min walk to the main area of town. The front desk guy was very helpful. Bedroom was small and tidy but the bathroom was huge! Place is clean. Might be a little confusing to find. Walked and watched a football match and really felt like a local. Just don't sit on the south side...it's where the hardcore fans sits and you don't want to be on that side or the opposing team side. Place is small, yet cozy. Can hear doors open and close at night if you don't mind the noise. Overall, I love this place and would stay here again when I return to Split.

Just got back from a three night stay at villa varos. My boyfriend and I stayed in one of the larger rooms, which was lovely. We had just arrived from hvar where we stayed in an awful hotel with no air conditioning, so this was a dream. The owner was lovely and told us lots about the local area, and the room was spacious, nicely decorated ( i don't think the pictures of the rooms really give them justice), and they were and cool (which was the most important thing to us by this point)

However, I did think when the guy working there showed us to our room he could have offered with our bags up the two flights of stairs and also the shower seemed to go freezing cold after five minutes of showering which was very frustrating.

I didn't find any problem with noise and in the high climate I think a slight bit of noise from the air conditioning in the night is much better than dealing with heat exhaustion and after my hot hotel in hvar, was grateful i could have a good nights sleep in villa varos in order to enjoy my days in Split

Also to mention - although cleaner didn't speak any English so couldn't understand what she was saying, she was lovely and very friendly. She did a fantastic job of servicing the room and greeted me with a smile every morning! It's nice to be nice!

Would definetely stay here again.

Very good value in split centre. .

Room Tip: Choose the larger room! Very spacious and cool.
