Villa Varos
Ranked #20 of 196 Split B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Villa Varos is in a great location being near to many of the main attractions in Split. The rooms are clean, modern and well presented. Joanne and her family are very helpful and friendly. The water cooler in the reception area is a nice touch - very welcome after walking around the city in the heat. A great little hotel in a central location very reasonably priced - I would recommend it.

We stayed here for 5 nights in early June and loved it. For starters when I booked the room on bookings.com I requested a cot for our 6 month old. I was emailed directly by the owner to be asked if I would like to book a more spacious room as the one i had booked would be quite tight with a cot. I'm so glad she contacted us because the upgrade was needed but even with the cot we ended up with room for 2 suitcases without feeling to tight in the room. The staff were lovely and it had all the amenities we required. They even provided a kettle for us so we could steralise bubs bottles. The room was cleaned to perfection everyday. Breakfast is around the corner at a local restaurant and was more than sufficient, you are provided with bread butter honey and jam, oj, choice of tea or coffee and then you can choose either the vegetable omelette, the ham and cheese omelette, bacon and eggs or muesli. The vegetable omelette was delicious. I found the ham and cheese to have too much ham for me but most people would probably love that. Breakfast was a great start to the day. The location is great just a 2 min walk from riva the main pedestrian mall. Getting from the bus stop to the hotel is easy enough but with baby in tow made it quite difficult while you can't get a cab to the dots you can get one to drop you like 40m from the place so we did this on our return trip. When we come back to split we won't hesitate to stay here again.

This little hotel is well located, no more than 10 minutes front the historic old town and 5 minutes from the Riva. Rooms are very clean and private bathroom is newly renovated and modern. Gregg, our host, went to college in the US, speaks perfect English and was extremely helpful. If you are driving, he will park your car for about 10 Euros a day. This is important because parking in Split is limited and expensive. Breakfast is included. Highly recommendVilla Varos.

I would stay here again and recommend to friends also. Delightful little hotel with excellent location whether you're heading to old town, Marjan or islands. Not a long walk from beaches either. Rooms are clean and quiet and are cleaned daily. Breakfast is served in a nearby and friendlyt restaurant and was good. There are some really good evening restaurants near Villa Varos, for example Konoba Marjan and a pizza place right across that. You can also book a transfer from the hotel to the airport - easy and comfortable. Staff is helpful and friendly.

While there are cheaper options, I found Villa Varos to be a great place for the $$. Its location can't be beat: 5 min from the Riva and about 15min walk to all the ferry terminals. I took public transport everywhere in Croatia so I did not have any problems or worries about parking a car. Several good restaurants and a grocery store are just seconds outside the entrance. Getting to the steps to the Marjan was quick and easy as well. What I was most pleased with was the large, modern, and clean bathroom. After a long day in the sun and heat, it was so nice to come back to a good shower. Well done and I would stay here again!

Room Tip: It is in a residential area so there is no real quiet or absolute privacy.

Fantastic little hotel in an old villa. About 5 minutes on foot from the cental bus station (which is ~ 30 minutes by public transport from the airport). Close by the harbor, the old Diocletian's palace and in the middle of many very enjoyable restaurants.
Very friendly staff and clean, modern and very quiet rooms at a reasonable price.
I can highly recommend this accomodation for your stay in Split!

... and we'd stay here again in a heartbeat. As always, read the reviews with your own preferences in mind. Villa Varos is on a narrow street within easy walking distance of the main attractions. We liked that feeling of being part of a real neighborhood. We found wonderful, authentic restaurants just around the corner and "adopted" one for breakfast for the four days we were there. The people we met at the Villa and the restaurant staffs were really friendly and happy to practice their English. (Almost everyone speaks English). Our room was really good and was cleaned daily. I do agree that the hot water is a little limited but that's easily managed .... Just convince your partner to let you shower first!
