“Great Location for exploring Split - room was fairly basic”

The Villa rooms are just 100m outside the Old City of split on a quiet road so the location cannot be beat. The room was nice if basic and quite expensive though

We stayed at Villa Olea following a week travelling around Korcula and Hvar, where Hotels were badly in need of redecoration and air con was unavailable. We were hot and tired but relieved to find a clean, well decorated, air conditioned room. The bed was huge and the bathroom was nicely finished.

The location is great for accessing the Diocletian Palace and other sights with bars and restuarants just a short walk away. It is positioned on a busy road but double glazed windows block out most of the noise.

One slight down side was that our room was next to the reception and we could hear the receptionist start work at 7am. This wasn't a major problem and we were very satisfied with our stay. We would definately use Villa Olea again if we returned to Split.

This is a pristine, beautifully decorated little hotel or guesthouse. Very comfortable. The staff are very enthusiastic and welcoming. Villa Olea does not offer the usual hotel facilities - hair dryer, packs of toiletries/shoe shine kit, mini bar, room service, coffee/tea - but if you rarely use these services you won't miss them. Despite its central location, Villa Olea is very quiet and peaceful.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Villa Olea is a newly opened luxurious residence which has been built in such a way that the original stone walls and the supporting beams have been integrated in the rustically furnished interior, in order to evoke the spirit of this 1700-year-old imperial city. The residence consists of 8 luxurious rooms, furnished with the exceptional hand-made solid wooden furniture, which is perfectly incorporated with the original stone walls from the 15th century. Despite our wish to bring to life the spirit of the past centuries, we haven't forgotten the needs of modern living. Each room has been provided with the air conditioner, LCD TV, Wi-Fi and other modern technologies. ... more   less
