Guesthouse Vrlic
Ranked #35 of 196 Split B&B and Inns
Reviewed 5 March 2014

I stayed at this guest house because of the reviews here on trip advisor and wasn't disappointed at all. The location of the guesthouse could not be better, a couple of paces from the palace walls and within less than a minute's walk of both a bakery and a small supermarket. I've stayed in Split several times and prices tend to be quite a bit higher than the rest of Croatia, but Vrlic was exceptionally good value given its location. The rooms are a little dated, although the owner is in the process of renovating them and if you have a car parking is just on the street and a little difficult (but not impossible). The owner himself is very friendly and welcoming as is his daughter, so the whole stay was very pleasant indeed.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the road are a little noisier (but nothing too problematic), those at the back...

Mapless and with no satnav device we could see where we wanted to be, but couldn't find our way in the one way system! Around and around we went, every detour a block! There was only one thing for it - I got out of the car and ran to the Vrilic. What a great response, our hostess was out on the street and quickly coned off a car park that became available. She then ran uphill and gave easy instructions to my friend. Within a few minutes we were parked and being assisted with our luggage. The property is secure, with a locked gate to access the property.
Very welcome refreshments quickly arrived as did instructions to the old town.... the location was excellent, down the hill and we were at the market, convenience store and into the old town. The car didn't need to move during our stay!
We couldn't get the wifi to work, but we actually never raised it, as we were never really in the room long enough to bother. Had we had the wifi we would without a doubt have wasted precious time that we spent exploring the town.
I found the guesthouses of Croatia quite different from hotel or apartment accommodation in Europe. It was obvious when booked so I didn't have any preconceived ideas, - I was not disappointed and found all accommodation including Vrlic . Fabulous value for money.
I thought this was great accommodation, with free parking. The location couldn't have been better, our hostess welcoming and helpful, and the room pleasant and spotlessly clean.

The guesthouse is an easy walk from the bus station up the hill, about 5-10 minutes. It is also quite close to the entrance to the old town, good location, with handy convenience store across the road for supplies. It is a family run establishment and we were greeted warmly and given some refreshments on arrival which was very nice. There are 35 steps up to the floor with the apartments and the family is up on level 2. The room was clean and comfortable but a bit on the smaller side as you would expect but was good value for the price, and split into three sections. The main room included bed and some cupboard space, two singles together, quite comfortable. Cosily decorated. The shower and toilet were in another very cramped room, with the basin area separate. It was a good stay for us only being there one night, but it may be a bit too small for two people on a more extended stay. free wifi was supposed to be available but I couldn't pick up a signal. We didn't bother querying it as we were only there for one night so it might have been just an intermittent problem.

This hotel is right next to the old town in Split. The owner ensured that we had a free parking space which is something you need to organise beforehand as parking is extremely limited in Split. It is an older hotel with all of the charm that goes with its age. The cleaners were very diligent and friendly and even hung out our shirts from the window to dry! We were lucky enough to score a room with a kitchenette which just gave us a little bit more flexibility. Highly recommended.

The owners were really the highlight of this property. They were very welcoming and even gave us their own parking space in front of the property. The location and the property itself were beautiful, with a lovely garden entrance. All of that being said the room was very small with hardly enough room for two people's bags. Additionally the bed was very uncomfortable and we woke up with back aches the next morning. Lastly, please don't expect to get wifi in this property. The router is clearly only located at the host's home (I was told you might be able to get reception if you stand next to the owner's flat) so doesn't work. I got on once, but was unable to do so again for the rest of our stay.

This guesthouse was located in a charming older building with high windows and ceilings and surrounded by quaint gardens. The rooms were clean, though wifi access was a little choppy. In terms of value for money, I would definitely recommend this guesthouse.

The hosts were very welcoming and very friendly. the room was really nice and comfortable right next to the city centre. It was very quiet with a view on their beautiful garden. The hostel is the place to be if you want to visit split in a relaxing way!!
