We were on a small group tour and did not know ahead of time which hotel we would stay at in Split. At the same time, we knew that some hotels here are located within Diocletian’s Palace, a 4th-century UNESCO-protected cultural monument. Imagine our surprise and delight when our guide led us to Hotel Slavija, a modern establishment tucked right into the walls of this 1700-year-old Roman ruin! The location is outstanding, being right in the centre of Split’s most famous landmark, near the Roman Mausoleum and Temple of Jupiter. Outside the Palace walls, you are just a few metres from the Riva, Split’s attractive waterfront promenade.
Both our rooms were a very generous size, each with beds for three. While the fixtures, bedding and decor are ultra-modern, the walls in some rooms have been finished to reveal the (seemingly?) original stones and bricks. Super-fast wifi is included in the rooms and was a treat after several days of slow connections at other venues. Bathrooms are a good size and well stocked with the usual amenities including a better-than-average blow dryer. Breakfast is served in a relatively small room just beyond the reception desk. It is primarily a continental breakfast, with fewer hot foods than we’ve seen at other venues in Croatia. We hope to return to Split and will definitely stay again at Hotel Slavija.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Slavija is type of a heritage hotel due to its location, history and protection by Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia and UNESCO. The Diocletian's Palace was built in the middle of the 3rd century AD, while the Hotel Slavija was built inside its walls, above the Emperor's western baths. Therefore, it can be concluded that the building of the hotel influenced the protection of the Baths from the devastation.
