“Amazing location and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

We ended up arriving a little late to Split but Michelle was there to meet us at the office and off we went to our apartment for the next 2 days. The location of our apartment was unbelievable! We were less than 30 seconds away from Diocletian's mausoleum and the bell tower. The apartment was cozy and right in the action. It wasn't too close to any bars so luckily at night it wasn't too loud but if we walked a couple minutes in any direction we could find nightlife.

Overall our stay there was excellent and Michelle was a great help. She told us about a couple nice local restaurants and we stopped by one of them twice it was so good.

Room Tip: You really can't go wrong, the second floor was nice because it was a bit higher from the action...

Stopped in Split on our way to Vis. Met by Michelle and her husband to exchange parking places so that we would not have to deal with the usurious charges in the public lots. Thus we parked 3 minutes away from the apartment.

Everything that has been said about the apartment is accurate. We had been on the road for the past two weeks staying in all sorts of self-described 3 stars or 4 star B&Bs. This offering is 5 star plus. Suffice it to say that it reflects the character and respect of Michelle towards her clientele and her genuine interest to make one's stay memorable.

She was a terrific host who ensured we knew where to go and what to do to maximize our stay and experience of Split. The fine details that she paid attention to can best be explained by example. Upon receipt of the house keys, all three, they were all clearly marked as to which opened the gate (red), the safe (small) etc.

Thank you Michelle for making our stay boy wonderful and memorable, The recommendations you made for meals etc were spot on. We hope more people will be able to enjoy your offerings.

At the risk of being repetitive, I can only confirm what the preceding sterling reviews have already attested to: This very elegant and beautifully-appointed flat is just a 6 minute walk from the harbour where the ferries dock, and the airport bus stops. It is a similar distance from the old town and the world-renowned Diocletian's Palace, a landmark historical feature of Split. A visitor could not hope to be better accommodated: tastefully decorated; comfortable; convenient; spotless; and generously kitted out, the Emperors’ Suites are a pleasure to return to after a day spent exploring ancient Split. The real bonus, however -- as everyone has already noted -- is Michelle, hostess-manageress extraordinaire. A goldmine of information, Michelle is there to greet guests at the bus stop, to shepherd them to the flat, to suggest the best spots to eat or visit, and to try – as she did so generously for us – to sort out logistical arrangements. She and the Emperors’ made our two overnight visits to Split not only memorable but easy. She, and the flat, are jewels.

The entire experience was great. Michelle is a really nice host and I have never seen someone greet us and make sure we felt at home. She provided us with a lot of information and patiently answered our questions.

The room was cozy and rustic. Very clean and well appointed with wifi etc.

Overall my wife and I had a fantastic experience here and would love to go back to visit.

Only drawback is that if you have heavy bags be prepared to haul them up to your apartment. There are no elevators.

Just returned from Croatia where we spent our final two nights in the Emperor's Suites. It's a
super location for everything in Split, very clean and powerful air-conditioning and WIFI. Michelle was a great host - having met us at the harbour, she provided a tour of the city whilst bringing us to the accommodation and recommended things to do/places to eat etc. I would definitely recommend Emperor Suites.

These two beautifully self contained rooms (reminiscent of our B and B in Venice) with kitchenette,ensuite, air conditioning and gorgeus small courtyard set us up for a lovely overnight stay on the edge of the Old Town, walking distance from the harbour.
Tip Make contact with Michelle before arrival as there is no parking in Old Town, however, she and her husband couldn't do enough to assist us with getting our luggage from car to our accommodation. Proximity to eating shopping and chilli gout fantastic. Would have happily stayed for a few days especially if our stay began on Saturday and a stock up at the amazing fresh produce markets.

An enterprising couple has remodeled and nicely furnished three apartments for use as vacation rentals. Two of these are next to each other on Trumbucac Ulica 11, which is some 200 meters outside Diocletian's palace walls. There is even a small garden and more light. Their third unit is inside the city walls, cute but on the small side, and less than100 meters from Diocletian's mausoleum, which is smack in the center of the palace grounds. I believe it is on the Ulica Julija Nepota. You do have to climb two flights of stairs. Michele will get her strong husband to help you with your luggage, both at arrival as well at departure. She is very helpful but she lives some distance away, so you do need a telephone to contact her. The location of these three units is superb, within easy walking distance to everything you want to see. They are all very nicely furnished, clean, and well-equipped.

The two units outside the walls are both on the ground floor next to each other. The larger unit even has a sauna, a large kitchen, a large sitting area, and a space-age type shower enclosure with nozzles directed towards different parts of the body but, like many newfangled doodads, not always operational. The smaller unit is a studio, located next to it. We were two couples housed inside and outside the walls, and the distance between the 2 units and the one inside the walls is only 5 minutes away, but it is a hassle if you don’t have a telephone.

It is important that you ask Michele how all the gadgets, such as heaters, washing machine, etc. work. In the small unit inside the walls our heater was not very efficient, and only the last day we found out there was a second heater. Also, you will not be able to find these apartments on your own, but Michele will meet you and take you there.

Breakfast is not included, but the fruits and vegetable market is nearby, as well as a number of grocery stores open quite early to quite late.

Parking is very expensive around that area, but if you come with a car, Michele will block a parking place in one of the few free parking lots around ahead of time, where you can then park your car for the duration of your stay. But if you leave that spot during that period, you are on your own. When you return, the parking place will not be there anymore,.

Room Tip: The units on Trumbucac are really nice and I believe they would be preferable over the smaller unit...
