Best location in Split. Don’t stay anywhere else. If you can’t stay here, stay close to here. The hotels outside of the palace are too far to get to all the things you probably want to do. But above the location, stay here for the people. The staff are all so lovely and have all gone above and beyond what would have been expected to make our trip amazing - before, during and after our stay. Take them up on their transfer offer to and from the airport. The staff are truly amazing.

Loved the place.. the staff were amazing, we travelled from Dubrovnik on the Catamaran to Split, we we welcomed by a nice guy on a golf buggy to take us to the hotel. As the hotel is slightly away from the road, a nice guy who worked at the hotel room is up to the reception of the hotel and told us about the history of the palace grounds. Once checked in the porter took us to our room. The staff in the morning were also great.. the staff, the location, the rooms all amazing. Big ups to the people who work there very attentive..

We enjoyed the amazing boutique hotel in the center of Split, located in the Diocletian Palace. It used to be the former library. The staff was outstanding and extremely helpful with any questions. Unfortunately we only stayed one night with an early morning departure. What a beautiful surprise, to find an incredible lunch box waiting for us upon our departure at 6:00 am. Great Job ! We can’t wait to return to Vestibul Hotel

Visited for a couple of nights in Split. Room was perfect, location couldn’t be better. Very hospitable service. Breakfast was good, coffee on arrival very welcome. You are right inside the walls of the Diocletian Palace, right by the seafront.

Really nicely appointed room. Outstanding breakfast. Located right behind the opera stage within the old palace walls so easy to walk to many attractions and restaurants. Super friendly and helpful service - they met us to help us park our car and take our luggage. Would definitely recommend this place!

From the second we stepped off the ferry, we were met by, not one, but two of nicest staff who insisted on carrying our bags to this 7 room hotel. Think top level Swiss hoteling, and that's what you'll see here. The location was insane - literally in the courtyard of Diocletian's palace. Lovely room, coffee brought to us within minutes and the sweetest, loveliest staff ever. While not inexpensive, one of our best hotel stays anywhere we've been in the world.

Location and history can’t be beat. All of the staff were friendly and courteous. We stayed three nights in the junior suite. The room itself was large, the bed was comfortable and the decor was tasteful. I found the AC to be subpar for the hot summer weather. When we arrived it wasn’t even turned on and the bathroom window was open letting in more heat. The only other note for this room would be the shower. You have to step up quite high over a bathtub to get in the shower. I could see this being an issue for some. The hotel helped us to book an island tour, there were several points of miscommunication that slightly impacted the beginning of our tour so this should be corrected for further visitors. Overall, great stay and we wouldn’t choose another hotel in Split.

Beware of Hotel Vestibul Palace. Last year we transferred a one-night booking to this year, because of a cruise covid cancellation. This year, the cruise was cancelled again, but the hotel would not transfer the booking to next year.

Stayed for 2 nights on a recent solo trip to Croatia. The location is fabulous for sightseeing around Old Town. Everything is walking distance. The hotel staff goes above and beyond on service. From meeting at the car and carrying your bag to your room, to printing out documents needed, to serving a great breakfast (included in your stay). The hotel was extremely clean and modern. The staff was amazing. You can’t go wrong booking at this hotel!

I have had the pleasure of staying in the hotel for a couple of nights whilst visiting the Dalmation Coast. The staff were amazing, on the first night I stayed I checked in at 2am after a long drive across Europe. Ivan met me at the parking and escorted me to the hotel before moving my car to secure parking. Due to this wonderful service, I booked a night on our return journey so that my wife and children could enjoy the luxury that I had without them. The hotel is fantastic and in a prime location and I cannot recommend it more highly
