Fantastic, you are staying inside Roman ruins in the Diocletian palace. You can get up early and enjoy the surroundings before the crowds come. The room is quite and great. I would stay here every time I come.
Pros - 1)fantastic location. 1 minute from the palace where they play live music every night. 2)nice accommodations for the price Cons 1)communication- I was arriving later in the evening and tried to confirm details 2 days prior and the day of arrival, no response. I would have felt much better having peace of mind with a reply. 2)I requested clean coffee cups after 2 days, I was told no 3)owner had to get something from my room later in the evening, I was sleeping. He apologized but I didn’t think it was necessary based on the time of day. Different story if it was the middle of afternoon. 4)stayed 3 night and trash was building up. It would have been nice to remove trash every other day.
My husband and I stayed at Base rooms only for one night in Split. The location is beautiful and for what you pay it is really nice. Excellent air conditioning, really nice bathroom, and spacious bedroom that overlooked a quaint alleyway. It's right off the main square of Diocletian's palace. Staff were really helpful and flexible about paying because I believe it was all cash. Lovely stay.
Yes, location and price are important, but a hotel needs more than that to merit better than 'average' on a review -and this place does not have it. The room was small and not especially clean. The only real amenity is a functioning AC unit. The TV has no reception. The provided computer could not be used. No radio or telephone. The in-room safe did not work (I mentioned this to staff on day 1 but nothing was done about it). Our one-each small bath towel was replaced on day 3. No daily housekeeping. Very little storage space, especially in the bathroom. I rate it 'poor' because of the big blotch of mold above the small shower stall. And, it is hard to find. You have to go into the travel agency at the bottom of the stairs to the Temple of Jupiter. There is a small sign but only the most eagle-eyed person would see it.…
Located right inside Diocletian palace, Sobe “Base” rooms enjoys one of the best locations in Split. Rooms are simple but clean & have free wifi & Internet Terminal. The staircase risers are a bit steep – but with the Jupiter’s temple on one side & the famous Luxor café on the other – chances are you’ll not mind them.
