“I haven't stayed everywhere in Split... but now I don't need too”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

I have stayed in Kaleta apartments on 4 different occasions, Each time in a different apartment ( I have stayed in two apartments above Teak Café, and two down the street). Each time everything has been fantastic, all of the apartments are situated in old city of Split with all the charm that could be asked for. This time I was in one of the apartments above Teak Café. I have met the owner (a bald, well spirited croat) and spoke with him a few times. He is always has the utmost concern about our stay and personally makes sure our trip is the best. I won't stay anywhere else in Split.

Room Tip: Ask about the apartments above Teak Café that have a view to the small alleyway outside. It's no...

While traveling to Croatia, I spent a total of 3 days in Split at Kaleta Apartments. I had the pleasure of staying in two different apartment buildings because I traveled to Hvar for a day in the middle. The first two nights I stayed in Apartment 1, and the last night I stayed in the Suite with the pull-out couch. I can't tell you which location I liked better, because they were both so amazing!

Apartment 1 is located right next to a bunch of little shops and cafes, making it very easy to get a quick bite to eat. The Suite was a little more secluded, off of a side street, but still within the walls of Diocletian's Palace and only a 2-3 minute walk from the other set of apartments. I can't even begin to describe how amazing the location of these apartments is. It feels as though you have been transported back in time and are roaming around on the Roman alleyways of Diocletian's day. Every turn feels like a new adventure. The rooms themselves were extremely charming with hints of Croatian history mixed in with modern times. And of course, they were very clean and comfortable. Both rooms had Wifi and computer access. We always ate out, but there was a nice little kitchenette available as well.

The hosts were very accommodating, thoughtful, and courteous. They were able to work around our schedules and helped us navigate not only Split, but the rest of Croatia. I was very impressed with their kindness and would highly recommend Kaleta Apartments to anyone visiting Croatia.

Room Tip: The building with the Suite (with the pull-out couch) is a little quieter if you want to be a little...

This is my 3rd time staying in Kaleta Apartments - every time, I'm blown away by the shear awesomeness of the experience. This time, I stayed in the recently expanded set of apartments a hundred or so meters from the original apartments. Still within the walls of Diocletian's Palace, these apartments are seconds away from the hustle and bustle off the main squares of Split but in a secluded ally in the old city that offers complete peace and quiet - an unparalleled dichotomy. The apartments are decorated with modern and antique relics of Diocletian's Palace and Split artwork. Naturally, there is Wifi, satellite TV, computer, fridge, and massage showers - all of which makes leaving the apartments difficult. Seconds away from all the historic attractions of Split including the Riva, Sv. Duje, the ferry, bus station, cafes, etc. About a ten minute walk from the beach and night life of Split. It is a family run set of apartments with incredibly welcoming hosts who will greet you with some domestic cookies/fruits. They will escort you to your apartments and ensure that everything about your visit to Split is perfect. Hosts were also able to help with onward travel to Hvar - ferry and accommodation arrangements. Highly recommend!

We stayed here for two nights the first week of May. Our communication with the owners was great right from the beginning to when we met to get the keys. The apartment has a great location, plenty of restaurants and attractions within a five minute walk. The apartment was very clean, furnished in a wonderful antique style and just a great value for staying in the Diocletian's Palace.

My friend & I rented an apartment for 4 days while visiting Split. We loved the location (right in Old Town) and felt like locals throughout our stay. The apartment is immaculate and spacious; very comfortable. The owners are very nice - met us at the apartment upon arriving, providing umbrellas for the unfortunately bad weather, and answering questions promptly. There is free wifi and a desktop computer for use in the living room area.

We recently stayed in Apartment Piazza for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon in Croatia. The location is absolutely amazing, right in the heart of the Diocletian Palace. While the apartment is located between 2 very busy cafes/bars, the windows offer great noise reduction and the apartment has air conditioning. We easily met the owner, Nino, who was very friendly and helpful. Even though he does not live on site, he can easily be contacted via phone or the intercom buzzer. The apartment was nicely decorated and very comfortable. It had a small kitchen and a bathroom which had a massage shower. There are many great restaurants and cafes close by and the harbour is a short walk from the apartment. I would definitely stay here again if I return to Split. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

A very nice room, smack in the middle of Split, inside the palace of Diocletian. Bit noisy in the evenings, but quiet at nights. It had a very good double bed, and a luxurious shower. Though not used by us, it had also a small kitchen, complete with all the utensils. Free wifi.
The owner was very friendly and helpful. Also for us a Travelers' Choice Winner!
