My wife and I loved staying here and thought the hotel was a great compliment to Split. We've enjoyed Split the most of the Croatian cities we've visited on our trip and the Vestibul added to our enjoyment. We highly recommend this property.

Bait & Switch. This is not an "Annex"

Posted 10-Sep-2017
We decided on this hotel as it was centered directly within Diocletian's Palace. As we booked, i received a pop-up stating "this is the Annex to the hotel" or somewhat similar. I exited the site, looked up the address and not finding an address change, booked the hotel. Needless to say, we weren't in, or anywhere near, or connected to, the hotel. I wasn't very happy when I was told that a fuidw would bring me to the hotel. The staff defended their position, printing off an email sent to me with the new address. Of course, by the time the email was sent, the room was booked and paid. I couldn't tell you how the actual hotel rates, or even an annex to the hotel. I can tell you that after an 8-minute walk, during which time I unsuccessfully tried to explain the word "Annex" is derived from a Latin word meaning "connected to...", we arrived at another hotel, with a different name, tucked away in a maze of twists and turns on the very edge of the palace. small room (ok- it's Europe so no harm), extremely hard bed (ok, it's in an outdoor palace, so not that big of a deal). Very clean bathrooms, friendly staff AFTER the deceit played out. Let's all be honest here- this isn't the first time a patron thought they were being tricked. Put the address on the website. Guess what- people won't feel like they are being cheated. I would still have booked the room if I'd have known the true address - I just would have been more informed and a heck of a lot more cordial upon check-in.

Really nice hotel, great location

Posted 23-Aug-2017
Pros: Location, cleanliness, updated rooms, helpful staff
Cons: Rooms are very small
Location: Very central to everything!
Great hotel in an awesome location right in Diocletian's Palace! Our room was small but we were only there for one night so the centrality of the location more than made up for it. The staff was very helpful, they ordered us a free shuttle to our ferry and helped us print our tickets. Highly recommend for a short stay in Split!

We stayed in their hotel, the Hotel Dobric

Posted 05-Jun-2017 on Orbitz
The hotel annex is quiet with comfortable beds, very helpful front desk, and a nice room. My suggestion would be to go to the main hotel for brunch breakfast since it has many more options than the smaller breakfast that is available at the annex. Was happy with the hotel and would stay there again.

Perfectly located modern boutique hotel

Posted 23-May-2017
Pros: The blend of modern and ancient. The staff.
Cons: We asked hotel staff to pass on to management that installing an upscale coffee/tea maker in the room would be a plus,
Location: In heart of Diocletian Palace; you can hear the acappella singers if you open window. It is directly ABOVE Diocletian cellars @water gate.
Totally enjoyed this small hotel. Best possible location. Rooms are modern and clean, staff are unvaryingly helpful and courteous, breakfasts are tasty. Be aware that you likely have to walk a bit with your luggage unless you make other arrangement, and the facility has no elevator. No problem for us.

A truly outstanding hotel. Split is a must see town for anyone visiting Croatia. And I doubt there could be a better hotel than the Vestibule Palace .

Location

Posted 03-Apr-2017
We absolutely loved this hotel, the location is awesome, you are literally right inside Diocletian's Palace (300 A.D.) and within walking distance of the ocean and tons of restaurants nearby. The concierge recommended a restaurant called Bokeria and it was one of the best meals I've had.

It was an amazing experience from the moment we checked-in until after we checked out. The front desk was very friendly and welcoming. All of the staff members went above and beyond to help and make our staying a great and comfortable experience. Although parking would be an issue in the area, they provided free valet parking. The hotel may be a little tricky to find, as it is in the center of the old town, but that is the case with most hotels in the area. The location is great, it is steps away from the bell tower and the basement of the old town. The breakfast was very good and the espresso was one of the best ones I have ever had
