We spent 4 nights in this small, but perfectly located hotel and were up-graded to a "suite" with separate living area on top floor and views over roof-tops. Good size bathroom with easily controllable shower.. Very grateful for efficient air-conditioning and double glazing, ensuring a peaceful night's sleep So worth lugging a suitcase up several flights of steps as rooms on lower floors might experience more noise. Clean with comfortable bed.
Breakfast in small room downstairs basic but adequate and there are plenty of nearby restaurants offering cooked breakfasts if required
All staff helpful and friendly and spoke good English. Interestingly English seemed to be the lingua franca for other nationalities staying at hotel.
Superb location in old city within short walking distance of airport bus stop, Riva (seafront) ferry terminals and bus station.
Initially difficult to find:. suggest cross road from airport bus stop, walk along Riva with sea on the left, go past entrance to substructure of Diocletian's Palace and a short walk further on take the next right just after a Tabac into a small square. Leave the square by the top right hand exit and then turn sharp right just past a small cafe. Take a few long shallow steps up the alley and you will see the white steps up to the hotel entrance ahead of you.
A real find which our 2004 guidebook described as THE place to stay in Split---and this was before it was refurbished.
- 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.
