We are currently having the greatest vacation in Split, not least thanks to our kind hosts at the Matkovic Guesthouse.

The location of this place is formidable: Living inside the walls of the ancient Diocletian's Palace you are within walking distance of all the city's sights. Nice restaurants and shops are just outside your doorstep.

When you book a stay here you receive a warm welcome email a couple of days before your arrival, explaining how to get from the airport to the guesthouse (hop on the Croatian Airlines shuttle bus, get off at the bus terminal and walk five minutes and you are there).

Then, when you arrive here you are met by the friendly young couple who owns the place, followed by the next pleasant surprise. A lovely, squeaky-clean room with all the amenities you can ask for: flat-screen tv, A/C, a nice bathroom with a shower that actually works, plenty of hot water, free and fast internet. There is even a washing machine in our bath-room! And for all this we pay the same amount for a whole week that would buy us one night in a middle class hotel in our hometown of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The bed is just right. The lighting is fine. There are shudders in front of the windows that you can use to keep out the noise from the city.

The surroundings are of course fantastic. This is Split. A town so beautiful that it is difficult not to fall in love with your love all over again. Who needs chain-hotels and expensive business-solutions when there is Matkovic?

Will we be back? Ohhh, you bet!

We spent only one night here but I have to say I can't fault the apartments!

Gorgeous, large, clean rooms and fantastic service for a bargain price and prime location withon the old town walls. I wouldn't hesitate to recomend this to anyone.

Split is a beautiful city to explore, wait until early evening to look around the Diocletian as it is a little quieter. We spent the day at the beach nearest the ferry port ... There's a girl doing great massages in front of The Legends Bar! Recomend Apetit for an amazing evening meal and a wander around the busy food / produce market in the morning.

We had an overnight in Split and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Guesthouse Matkovic. Frane was most obliging and helped us with several queries upon our arrival. The restaurant he recommended was wonderful. The location was perfect - our room overlooked a park and we were only steps from the Palace walls and then the waterfront. We arrived by bus and easily walked from the bus station to the Guesthouse. I would definitely recommend Guesthouse Matkovic for an overnight or a longer stay.

We stayed for 1 night and were pleasantly surprised.
The Guesthouse is right at the edge of the old city, which allows you to get close with the car and unload. Then with the help of the owners you are directed to availble, free street parking. The room was clean and overlooked a small park, with very comy beds and nice shower. The owners took the time and gave helpful tips for Split and the soroundings.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed a 2-night stay at this accommodation located inside the old city walls. The room was clean and spacious and the location couldn't have been better - just minutes away from the waterfront, bus/train station, and all the major attractions in Split. In our opinion this was great value for the price. The young couple working here was very helpful and we had no trouble making all the necessary arrangements in advance. Would definitely stay here again!

Location is everything here!

We loved the luxury apartment with the beautiful patio on the 5th floor overlooking the Peristil in Diocletian's Palace.

The apartment is beautifully furnished and vey spacious. The proximity to the green market, bakeries and supermarket and the fully stocked kitchen made enjoying wine and our own meals many of the nights we were there easy and fun!

The washing machine and AC both work great and the wifi is awesome.

Frane and his girlfriend take pride in their spot and it shows. They were very friendly and easy to work with.

We'd highly recommend this apartment to others. You won't find a better location in Split!
