5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 December 2010

We Had a fantastic stay here in August. The Hotel was small but the rooms were really nicly decorated with a good sized bathroom. Really central location and the lady on reception was helpful too. Good value for money would recommend this hotel.

A great location right in the centre of Split, within five minutes walk of the Palace and Riva and ferry terminal. We drove in and parking was a bit of a nightmare. But Joanne carefully described some places to park and eventually we got a place, although a fair walk from the Villa. It would be far easier if you had arrived by boat or taxi!

Room was very clean and the bathroom was very smart. Not the biggest but ok for us. Only down side was the noise of the neighbours constantly chatting away in their courtyard. We were constantly shutting the window to block out their noise and then opening it again cos it got too warm!

Not many choices in town for breakfast but a few restuarants/cafes near by that are recommended by Joanne.

This guesthouse in the walking distance from the harbor and Diocletian’s Palace is in lovely narrow streets. Rooms are very clean and well appointed.

I stayed at the Villa Varos with my boyfriend in June 2010 for one night, the service cleanliness was top notch. As not many reviews had been written we were a little concerned but they absolutely exceeded our expectations. As it was my Birthday they even bought us some local wine and chocolates which was very kind.
I cannot recommend these apartments highly enough, they are obviously quite basic but the air con worked and the shower was very powerful. The location was great and the team were very friendly and helpful.
Would go back again if ever in Split again.

Stayed here at the beginning of our trip to Croatia and was very pleased with what we got. We booked the apratment as there wasnt any rooms left and it was really nice! It was 209 Euros per night but you got a large living room/ sofa area, double bedroom, bathroom, dining area and balcony with seating. The rooms were nicely furnished and extremely clean.

The apartment could easily sleep four people comforatbly as the living room sofa was a double sofa-bed.

Included in the kitchen area was a frdige and kettle.

location is excellent as 3 minutes from the palce area and not noisy at all.

The service wasnt brilliant as I dont think the son really has a passion for customer service. We got everything we needed however so cant really complain about this, he just could have smiled more!

We really enjoyed our stay in Split at the Villa Varos. We let Joanne know when we would be arriving so that she could expect us, and she met us promptly and showed us to our room. She also kindly reassured us that we had parked our rental car legally (we found the parking situation in Split to be very confusing!) We were impressed with the room, which included a large bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. The location is tucked away on a side, residential street, very close to Diocletian's Palace and also close to the ferry terminal. I really enjoyed our location and felt like we had a much more genuine, personal experience than we would have had if we stayed in a larger, more formal hotel.

Villa Varos has a lot of character and is an excellent value. I highly recommend staying here if you want to experience Split like a local.

My husband and I have just returned from a trip to Croatia where we stayed in Villa Varos. We arrived at Villa Varos late at night with a view of staying in Split and getting a ferry the next day. Upon arrival at Villa Varos, there was a note on the day saying that reception would be closed until 9pm. At 9.25pm we were still waiting in the laneway outside the hotel with all of our baggage having endured a long flight and keen to check in. Eventually I used my mobile to call the owner who told me her son was around the area and would check us in. I thought this was ok and didn't think too much of it, however this was basically the way things went for our entire stay. The son then took us to the wrong room and we walked in on some poor man laying in bed at which time her son swore and left us standing there whilst he went to find the correct keys. Very uncomfortable all round. After finding the right room, we finally settled in and the rooms are actually very nice, clean and quiet. The next morning I went downstairs to thank the owner for arranging to let us in and confirm that their check out policy was at 11am. At 10.20am as we were trying to pack and organize ourselves, we received a knock on our door and it was the son who was asking us to leave asap so that he could dri ve someone to the airport. We got to the desk only to find all guests had been asked to check out early. We left our bags in their reception as our ferry wasnt until 2pm and told the son we would be back at 1pm at which he agreed that would be fine and he would be there. Again, we were waiting at the door until 1.20pm and had to call the owner so that we could rescue the bags and try to make the ferry.
This was the first place we had stayed in Croatia. I did find that with the villas/apartments the reception is not open during the day and therefore we probably should expect less and be prepared to lock in hard and fast times with the owner. However we did go on to stay at other Apartments where the Owners were fantastic and we had no problems at all. It was a shame that the service here wasn't great as the rooms are actually quite big and very clean. The location was very good. I did get the feeling that running this hotel was not a priority for the Son and he was completely not interested and at times quite rude. We did go back to Split and decided not to return to Villa Varos - it was just too hard to try and be a guest there!
