“Wow!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

We stayed in 5 hotels in Croatia- while we like them all- and rated them all as excellent- This was by far our favorite!
When we arrived by ferry from Hvar, they were waiting for us with the golf cart and quickly took us and our luggage to the hotel. Though our room wasn't ready yet (it was only 9 a.m.) they told us they would work on it as soon as it was available, and gave us a handy map with places identified for us to walk to and explore. They also gave us a free Split card- as we would be there 3 nights- which gave us free or reduced admission to many attractions.
When we got into the room we were just delighted- large and airy with stone walls and a view overlooking the People's square. The safe was 400 years old set in the wall with a large key to open- no electronic codes here! There were chocolates and cookies and tea in the room to welcome us- and a bottle of wine on our last day.
With the windows open, there was some plaza noise, but we enjoyed that- especially enjoyed one rainy night when some traditional Dalmatian a cappella singers took advantage of the overhang from a building on the square to stay dry, and sang several Dalmatian melodies-we could hear laying in bed- just lovely!
Staff was friendly and helpful- responding to every need and request promptly and cheerfully- not that we had many requests- as everything was great to start with!

What a wonderful surprise this hotel is!
Although impossible to get here by car, once you arrive the staff are amazing!
The location is perfect, and the rooms are delightful.
Right on the Peoples square in the old city, in close proximity to anything you want to do in Split!

Make sure you have proper driving directions to get here, because the navigation system does not alert you that you cannot drive into the old city.

A delight to behold!

We stayed in 4 different hotels during our recent trip to Croatia, and this one is the friendliest by far! The staff bent backward to comply with all our requests. Everyone who works there are either family members or friends of the owner, and they all seemed genuinely happy that you are there. We even had a "tea party" on the 2nd floor atrium @ 8pm, and the receptionist brew us a pot of hot water and brought out the nice porcelain tea cups, and even put on white gloves to serve us tea. You just can't get this kind of personal attention anywhere else.

I highly recommend it!

My wife and I loved this little hotel. It has charm and character and it is beautifully located in Split. But the real reason to stay at the Judita Palace is because the staff constantly and consistently goes out of their way to make every guest feel right at home. They are helpful is so many different levels.

Our room was cozy and well furnished. The breakfast was nice and we had no complaints with this very special spot. This is a hotel that I would be happy to recommend to anyone visiting Split.

Judita is a spectacular boutique hotel located right in the heart of Split's old town. The room was modern, clean, and comfortable. Ask for the room with a view of the main square. Staff was incredibly helpful and actually picked us up in a golf cart directly from the ferry terminal. Would highly recommend to anyone staying in Split.

I see that Judita Palace racked up a bunch more superlative reviews since I booked based on blind trust of fellow travelers' experience here, and I am adding one more.

Location: On "People's Square" just outside Iron Gate of the compact Diocletian Palace, so this hotel is very centrally located.

Rooms: elegant and well-maintained in a historic building. Attention to detail is evident everywhere you turn.

Service: Superb. The kind you expect from a super luxury hotel, except the staff here seem genuinely motivated to help rather than just go through the motion. Example: a casual question about the driving route to our next destination led to a color map promptly printed out for us.

Food: excellent breakfast with eggs cooked to order.

Amenities: This is a tiny boutique hotel in a car-free central district so don't expect huge meeting rooms, spas, etc. The in-room wifi was a bit slow, but that was minor.

Parking: reserve in advance - you park outside the Old Town and they pick you up in a golf cart. In our case, another car was occupying our spot and the staff quickly had it towed. That seemed a bit harsh but chalk it up to their extreme desire to please...

Summary: This is easily the best hotel overall we stayed in during our entire trip to the old Yugoslav Republics in March. The more expensive options, such as Vestibule Palace or Hotel Peristil have nothing on this hotel. (their "ancient walls" are not really Roman but mostly medieval, which this hotel has also anyway.) I don't know why this was not listed in Rick Steves' guidebook, which otherwise has excellent recommendations.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a room with a balcony overlooking the square.
