4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

... and we'd stay here again in a heartbeat. As always, read the reviews with your own preferences in mind. Villa Varos is on a narrow street within easy walking distance of the main attractions. We liked that feeling of being part of a real neighborhood. We found wonderful, authentic restaurants just around the corner and "adopted" one for breakfast for the four days we were there. The people we met at the Villa and the restaurant staffs were really friendly and happy to practice their English. (Almost everyone speaks English). Our room was really good and was cleaned daily. I do agree that the hot water is a little limited but that's easily managed .... Just convince your partner to let you shower first!

We arrived in Split only to find we could not get a car anywhere near the address. It transpired that the Villa Varos was in a very narrow alley. No way can it be called a hotel. Rooms or tenement --yes. The rooms we had(two couples) were small,clean but no facilities such as a glass to drink out of . Pictured one sees kitchenette type rooms---no such thing for us. We did not have enough room to open a case without placing it on the bed. The view from our window was washing hanging out next door. There was banging from workmen and a dog barking. I was so upset to find I had been responsible for making this booking.

Room Tip: Request a room on the larger side with facilities such as drinking glasses

The location was great, 5 mins to practically any part of the city centre. The room itself was functional and fairly clean.
Our main grumble was getting to Split from a late night/early morning flight. We had to wait until the assigned check in time (nothing wrong with that) but when we did check in we went to bed for a few hours sleep before going out for dinner. When we were asleep the cleaning lady let herself into the room (I don't think we heard her knock as we were both wearing earplugs) and backed out when she saw us as i woke up. Unfortunately this also happened the next morning at 10am!
There was particularly poor sound separation between the rooms as well.
Maybe try somewhere else I'd say.

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 .
