A Tale of Two Hotels

Posted 24-Oct-2016
Pros: The staff were lovely. The room was tasty decorated and the bed was comfortable enough.
Cons: The number one complaint would have to be their sneaky booking practices. It felt very bait and switch.
Location: You can visit the lovely main hotel a short 10-15 minute walk from the Annex.
This hotel is really two hotels: the lovely sounding one from the description and the Annex. This review is for the Annex. Based on responses to reviews I read too late, management will be likely to point out that the confirmation said that I was confirmed for the Annex, but since I didn't request a room in the Annex it didn't occur to me look for that. I think that is a sneaky trick. The Annex doesn't have a hot breakfast. You can walk over to the real hotel for a hot breakfast. True, it isn't miles away, but it is far enough that you will pass dozens of other hotels and restaurants and you may find that irritating. I know I did. It doesn't help that you finally get to the other hotel and realize "Wow, this dining room is beautiful like in the pictures they used to sell the property" or "I can actually step out of the hotel and into the Peristyle!" I can't really speak to the quality of the actual hotel, but my suggestion is that you check your confirmation closely and consider canceling if it says "Annex".

Perfect hotel in a perfect setting

Posted 23-Oct-2016
Perfectly situated in the old town of Split, Hotel Vestibul Palace blends history with contemporary comfort. Steps away from the heart of Split yet nestled comfortably in the tranquility and history of a great location. Make sure you stay at main location, as annex lacks some of the charm.

Pros: Location and accommodations.
Location: The hotel was in a great location as it was inside the walls of Diocletian's Palace, so it was close to shops, restaurants and the waterfront.
This hotel is in a great location within the walls of the old town of Split. The staff was extremely helpful and the accommodations were comfortable and clean. Breakfast was plentiful and there was a good variety of options.

Fantastic Location

Posted 08-Oct-2016
Location: Be sure to explore the basement of the Palace, also the special terrace at the Ethnography Museum. Skip the red sub!
The Vestibule has a terrific location in the heart of Diocletian's Palace. A cappella singers perform nearby (and take their breaks at the hotel), and it's minutes from just about everything. Plus the Palace itself is fascinating. The staff at the hotel is very friendly and helpful. We arrived by ferry and the hotel sent someone down to help us with our bags. Very nice, especially on a rainy day.

Great hotel great location

Posted 24-Sep-2016
Pros: Location, staff.....everything
My husband and I recently stayed at the Vestibul Palace and throughly enjoyed our stay. The location was fabulous, right in the center of Diocletian's Palace. Hotel is very small boutique hotel. Very nice breakfast. If you stay at the annex, can go to the main hotel for the buffet there. Rooms were small but sufficient. Nice, modern bathroom and we were greater with a delicious bottle of wine. Staff was superb. Very helpful and caring.

Central location in Split

Posted 30-Aug-2016
Great staff and very good breakfast. Note if you stay in the annex building where they have 4 extra rooms get ready to climb stairs , up to 5 if you are in the top floor. Also in the 4th floor, the loft bedroom cealing is very low so you need to be careful not to hit your head. The main building seems very nice but my room was not there. We did have breakfast there both mornings and it was very good.

Magnifique hotel au coeur de la vieille ville.

Posted 06-Aug-2016
Pros: L'emplacement et l'amenagement
Cons: Notre chambre etait petite et donc peu logeable pour deux grosses valises.
Location: Au coeur de la ville. Tout est a proximite.
Hotel amenage pres du Peristil et au coeur du Palais Dioclesien/Vestibul. On ne peut etre mieux situe. L'amenagement de ce tout petit hotel est magnifique et rencontre les standard d'hotel boutique. La chambre etait petite mais tres confortable. Les sanitaires de belles facture. Le personnel a ete tres chaleureux et aidant avec les valises - de nombreuses marches doivent etre montees pour se rendre - et donc l'aide est bienvenue. Tout etait extra. On y retournera.
