Reviewed October 4, 2012

This place has it all. We loved being right inside the palace and though we were escorted the first time by Tina's father Ivo (I hope that is the correct spelling) from the palace entrance if you follow Tina's instructions exactly you won't get lost. We had a second floor room that was spotless, roomy, had great water pressure (somewhat lacking in Croatia) and completely quiet at night thanks to the shutters on the windows. Plenty of places to eat breakfast steps away. Jewelry at the souvenir shop is nice too. We will definitely return

Base Rooms is very well located in the old town of Split. It is practically next door to the Peristil, and a short walk to the waterfront "Riva". It has friendly, helpful owners with good local knowledge and advice. We stayed there for a week at the end of September, & there is a church bell that rings early each morning (sometime after 6/6:30am) quite close to Base Rooms, but that apart, I would recommend this accommodation, purely for its location.

Like every one else has said this is a great place to stay and a great location inside the Palace. Tina and Ivo are very friendly and accommodating. We did not experience any outside noise in our room on the first floor up.

My husband and I were very happy staying here and Tina and her dad Ivan are very accommodating. It is a little tricky to find, but right next to Jupiter's Temple and very convenient to all the sites and attractions both inside and out of Diocletian's Palace. We really enjoyed the music every evening right in the square by Luxor hotel (2 seconds from BASE rooms). If you go just past Jupiter's Temple, there are a ton of restaurants. The rooms were an excellent price, clean and also with wi-fi. It was hard to believe that we were staying in the middle of such a historic palace/old town!

Two mattresses side by side make a spacious king. Air-con is vital in this hot muggy climate. After going cross-eyed on the tiny screen of my wi-fi mobile, it was grand to have a computer & screen & desk in our room. We asked for & got the top-floor (3 ensuites above each other & a ground floor shop) to distance us from pedestrian noise. These clean rooms, purpose-refurbished under UNESCO guidelines for old buildings, is 40 metres up alley beside Luxor restaurant on the ancient square (shiny marble polished by footsteps of 17 centuries) just inside main entry from port, right next to Museum entry. Ivo is a knowledgeable & helpful host offering most interesting conversation and useful tips. Split is an industrial eye-sore of 350,000 people who enjoy visiting the scenic Old City in the evenings and weekends with their family, making OC feel more cosy and less over-run by tourists. After two full days you may still discover new squares (& shops) & courtyards where locals & others drink coffee at half the price of tourist ‘hotspots’. Stay in the OC, preferably in Base to catch the atmosphere (without the rank odours of some streets). Trogir is ‘nice’ but not worth the 1 hour trip (in pleasant boat or bone-rattling bus). Base is quite rightly recommended in Rick Steve’s guide, so it gets full – book early and you won’t regret it ! As I was checking in, another passenger from our Hvar catamaran arrived without booking, and Ivo assisted him in finding accommodation elsewhere.

Room Tip: Higher floor = more quiet (not that it was noisy)

I can only say that if you also plan to visit split in summer like me, BASE rooms is one of the best choices. Its location is at the heart of Diocletian Palace, just upstairs from the Egyptian sculpture which is part of LP suggestion path, even got an tiny but direct entry from the plaza. Under violent sunshine and burning season, we kept walked in town and returned air-conditioned room within these 2 days due to the convenience. We met a dancing night in plaza, a little bit noisy but it didn't affect your sleeping time.

Without daily cleanliness service, but the room was spacious and tidy. Destop computer was fast in network, but I cannot install card reader to back-up my photos in my memory sticks.

Restaurants were just downstairs thru the narrow ivana., travel agencies were easily located from hotel towards north gate, which helped us plan for daily trip in Brac.

Room Tip: If you carry heavy luggage, please choose the lower floor as possible.

The rooms are very large and spacious with great plasma TVs, a computer and large ensure bathroom.
Hosts are very friendly and helpful.
Great location near palace.
Try nearby Luxor restaurant for a very atmospheric experience within the palace walls.
Rooms are quite difficult to find but with Tina's detailed instructions we managed quite well. I'd recommend Base rooms.
