It is located withing the old walls and is an apartment on the second floor. There was 2 bedrooms which were both very large and clean, with a bathroom too. NIce new wooden floorboards and everything modern, but basic, not too over the top. The managers were super friendly and picked us up from the airport and have us some tips of things to do. Close location to everything! Stayed here for 6 days, definitely recommended!

The apartment we stayed in, was a 5 minute walk from palace. Everything was fine. Room was clean however there were strange noises from the room above in the middle of the night. We only stayed there 1 night, which was enough. It is perfect if you just need a place to sleep for the night. This is not a hotel, it just seems to be a company with a list of apartments on their books that they rent out.

I stayed in a double room in summer with no air-con or fan. It was very hot in the room. There was a cafe/bar just underneath me and noisy but I couldn't close the window because of the heat. I stayed for three nights and the room was never serviced. On the other hand if it had not been so hot I might have enjoyed the room. It was reasonably large and the bathroom fixtures looked fairly new. Great location. Owners were friendly but not very helpful. Guests get to use their Internet cafe for free.

I stayed in the studio apartment, which is not in the same building as the regular rooms, but still inside of Diocletian's Palace and close to everything I wanted to see. The apartment was a normal studio, with two twin beds pushed together, two hot plates, a fridge, dishes and pans plus sugar and salt provided on the table. There's a Tommy supermarket about 3 minutes away, as well as a 24 hour bakery, so it's convenient to prepare your own meals.

Pros: Staff are really nice and helpful. Free map and printed guidebook of Split in apartment. New insulated window which completely blocked out noise from street. Lots of channels on TV (even some in English). AC/heat worked well.

Cons: No wifi in apartments! I booked this place because it was cheap but also because I thought there was free wifi. Maybe there is in the regular rooms, but there is nothing in the apartments. I had to pay to use the computers at the reception office in order to get online.

Reception closes at 9 pm, so if you arrive late, you must call them to get the key (and to find out where the apartment is since it is not near the reception office).

The hot water heater was incredibly small and we had only about 5 minutes of hot water before it ran out and we had to wait for it to heat up again. This wouldn't have been much of a problem if it had been hot outside, but it was actually rather cool and we had to turn the heat on in the apartment too. Towels are included, but they are also really small.

The location was excellent, but I was disappointed with the lack of internet and hot water. But it is a great value for the money (we only paid 30€ per night) so I would recommend it for budget travelers and backpackers.
