“overall amazing experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2011

I stayed three nights in this small hotel, and it was really a joy to come back to each day. The location can not be beat (inside the diocletian palace), the staff were all very friendly and helpful, and the rooms are modern, clean and well appointed. I am a fan of smaller hotels to begin with, and this one did not disappoint in any way. I can not recommend this hotel highly enough.

I only stayed one night off season but I loved everything about this hotel, its location nestling within the old Diocletian Palace walls is perfect. The contemporary design has been beautifully integrated into the old walls of the palace. The rooms and bathrooms are tastefully styled and spotlessl clean. Admitttedly the hotel was not busy but the service we received went way above the call of duty.

We stayed only one night at the Hotel Vestibul, but it was a fabulous night. The service was as good as we've ever had - friendly, courteous, and exceeding all expectations. The room was not large, but was big enough for 2 and was designed beautifully. The breakfast buffet was very good; the coffee was terrific. And, of course, the location was superb.

Our taxi dropped us off at the start of the pedestrian zone with general directions to the hotel. My advice is to have specific directions. Better, plant yourself outside the palace walls and call the hotel for someone to come and get you. If you have any luggage at all, you'll want the help anyway. It is a fair walk and quite a few steps to get to the hotel. But, after arrival, a perfect little boutique hotel in a splendid location with a wonderful staff. Thoroughly enjoyable.

We can't say enough nice things about this hotel. The staff was beyond amazing! It was our honeymoon and we stayed in over 6 hotels along our trip throughout Croatia, and this was by far our favorite. Not only is the hotel amazing, we stayed in room 6, but the staff are just fantastic!

I wish I could remember everyone's names. We had one of the best, and most memorable dinners at the hotel with Branimir as our waiter. He's just...just amazing! He really cares about the guests, and was such a pleasure to talk with. He made great food recos and was always just so happy. You can tell that he really likes his job and honestly it shines in the work he does. We also had two younger gentlemen who helped us with our bags who were so kind, and the woman at the front desk with the short brown hair was so lovely and helpful.

This is a hotel with so much to offer, that its easy to take advantage of as the staff is always trying to make sure you are happy. Thank you for making our honeymoon so special. I would highly recommend this hotel.

The hotel was right in the heart of town and an excellent place for exploring the city. The staff were very helpful and polite and the room was spacious and well presented. We were only a minutes walk from all the main attractions of Split but despite this the room was very quiet. Couldn't recommend this hotel enough!

I can't recommend this hotel enough....everything about it is absolute perfection.

Positioned right in the Roman Vestibul this has to be the best location in Split.

Our room (villa), a 5 minute walk from the hotel, was clean, modern, and the beds very comfortable....including the sofa bed. :)

Breakfast, which you eat outside, is exquisite....perfect start to the day...they serve a big variety of fresh fruits, with top quality cheeses, hams, breads etc... big thumbs up to Branimir! Out of all the hotels we stayed in this was the tastiest breakfast…

The staff make this hotel complete. They are extremely caring and helpful....a special thanks goes out to Drago (who works at reception) and Duje… I had to see a doc whilst there, and Duje was so kind and came along to be the translator. It's things like this make a hotel stand out from all the others...

The free internet is very useful, saves having to wait at the busy internet cafes!

We would definitely return to this hotel... Location, Staff, Comfort.... 5*

Thank you Vestibul Palace!
