Where to stay in Split

Split and its surrounding area boast an extensive system of private accommodations for rent, which range from simply furnished rooms to elegantly outfitted multi-room apartments. Many locals approach travelers at the main bus station with offers of available lodgings, but before you agree to anything, make sure you know the room's exact location in reference to the town center. For something more luxurious, check out the city's four- and five-star hotels, or consider an elegant villa a walk away from the major sights.

  • The most popular place in town for coffee on a sea front, filled with cafe bars, pizza cuts, jewellery shops.
  • Beautiful area of Split, combining history with modernity in a way that doesn't feel forced. Stunning buildings bump up against a busy, working port and an ancient Roman palace, and none feel out of place.
  • Best place in split for enjoying in the city , you have a excellent view on sea , and sunsets
  • Nice place amazing old town but place smells horrible all the time and it is not really clean. Hope it will change in future
  • Good port with interesting old town and good shopping
