“Great place don't look elsewhere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2009

We were supposed to stay at another hotel but there was some confusion with the booking site and actual availability. The other hotel recommended Villa Varos. They explained how to get downtown and told us a place to meet their son. Everything was great from the get go. We enjoyed our stay, the family is helpful and the location is great. I did a rare dumb thing of leaving my car keys and some other valuables in the room. This included cash in US currency. I called the hotel and JoAnne mailed everything to my US address. I told her to use the cash to pay for the postage and inconvenience but she sent us everything. We love small family run hotels. I would highly recommend Villa Varos. Only thing they could add to the lobby would be a public PC. They do have wifi.

This place was perfect for our short stay in Split.,..in fact shorter then we originally thought,. This would have been the first stop on our honeymoon and we arrived 8 hours late! We had no way of contacting Joanne, the owner and she literally ran into us on the street in the dark after waiting on us. She then let us to our clean, efficient room where chocolates and wine were waiting. After our stressful trip where my luggage wast LOST she proceeded to call around and talk to airlines etc in order to try to get our luggage back. The airlines were less then helpful and she ended up calling a personal friend who is a taxi driver to personally put it on a boat and make sure it made it to our next destination...an island an hour away! Her kindness and service was above and beyond, the price was great, the bed comfy and had full satellite TV. We were only there one night but wished we could have stayed longer!

This small hotel is perfect for a short stay in Split, and very good value: we paid EUR 60 per night (granted, it was the low season). Our room ("comfort double") was decent size, very clean, and had a comfortable bed. There is satellite TV and wireless Internet.

The owner was extremely helpful, explaining all we needed to know (and more), and recommending places to eat. Communicating in English was not a problem – the owner is Canadian Croatian, I think.

The only little problem was the water heater, which was a bit on the small side (if you're second in the queue, you may end up covered in soap in the shower with only cold water to wash it off).

Villa Varoš doesn't serve breakfast but they have an agreement with Konoba Leut, a small cafe 3 mins away; the breakfast is totally OK, and only 20 Kuna (EUR 5) per person. A nice view of the harbour included.

Villa Varoš is located in a tiny side street in the lovely Veli Varoš district with its charming narrow streets. Walking distance from all the major attractions: 5 mins from the old town core with the amazing Diocletian's Palace, and 10 mins from Marjan Hill, which was the highlight of our visit.

Split in general is a gem. In particular, the food was excellent everywhere we went (Konoba Šperun, Konoba Matejuška, Konoba Varoš – all nearby); don't miss the seafood, the pršut (smoked ham parma/jamón style) or the paški sir sheep cheese).

usually prefer to stay in big ultra modern hotels but the reviews for this small back street hotel sounded too good to overlook. Villa varos at around £50pn cam e up trumps due to its excellent location, largeish modern, clean rooms and quiet sourroundings. breakfast is offered at a discount at nearby harbour side cafe and though basic was good value. watch out for rooms 1 and 2 which are on the ground floor right beside the tiny reception. We stayed in room 7 which along with 5 other rooms you have to enter the building via a different entrance. Best room probaly no. 8 which is at the top and has biggest space. Also watch out for the quantity of hot water, you only get enough for two 5min showers before tank runs out. I'd definately recommend this hotel for its location and value especially if yuo want to stay as central as possible.
