with a 1,500-year old Diocletian Palace wall for y

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 25, 2009

Under construction!!!

LOCATION:
The hotel is part of the 1,500-year old Diocletian Palace. It is at the Silver Gate (east) of the palace.

ACCESS:
Walk: At the Silver Gate (east) of the Diocletian Palace.

Drive: make sure to drive along the narrow street Hrvojeva right under the east wall from north to south. When you get to the Silver Gate, ask hotel staff to help you park your car in a safer place.

Parking:
There is no on-site parking for guests, but the hotel staff could help you with parking somewhere else.

RECEPTION:
Hotel staff is very friendly.

ROOM:
Our room was on the top floor, it uses the old wall as part of its walls. The very low arched window facing east has a view of the Church just outside of the wall, and if you try really hard sticking your head way out, you probably can see the Green Market beyond through the very small open of the window on the very thick wall.

The north side window has a view of the wall and the part within the wall, including the bell tower and the Cathedral and the Bell Tower. The room is spacious with a very traditional deco with old feelings.

The bed was reasonably comfortable.

BATHROOM:
Bath room is rather small, with one pedestal sink, no counter top space for laying out stuff. The toilet flush uses a string (old style again). The shower is a 2’x2’ size, with good volume of hot water.

BREAKFAST:
Breakfast is included in the room rate. Since it is a small hotel, one has to order from their menu for breakfast. It has a reasonable selection of choices including various cheese, jams, coffee, orange juice, omlette or scrabbled egg (both with ham, mushroom, or vegetable); breads, corn flakes; and fresh fruit (banana, apple, pear, and oranges).

DINNER:
The hotel also runs a restaurant to public. We had a dinner at its out-door area, with a nice view of the palace wall, the bell tower and the cathedral.

It serves typical Dalmatian style food, grilled fish, with vegetables, and meat dishes.

Menu of almost all restaurants have typical format with appetizers, cold and hot dishes, fish dishes, meat dishes, side dishes, and desserts. Some even have a section ‘sauces’ (do you order sauce to go with grilled fish separately?).

See my restaurant tip for details (the food was very good).

INTERNET:
Somehow the wireless access (supposedly free) simply did not work when we were there.

Unique Quality: Is part of the historic Diocletian Palace/the old town, walking distance to everywhere. Only 100 meters away from the water front; next to the lively green market. Having 1,500-year old wall for the rooms!

Directions: Walk: At the Silver Gate (east) of the Diocletian Palace.

Drive: Manage to drive southward along the pedestrian street Hrvojeva to the Silver Gate. Then ask hotel staff to help you park your car in a safer place.

Not quite the Emperor's bedroom...

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

... but built within his palace, this is definitely a hotel with a unique location!

Hotels inside the walls of Split's Old City are very few and far between - in fact to my knowledge there are only two - the Peristil and the Adriana. I can't vouch for the Adriana as I haven't stayed there, though friends who have found it perfectly adequate if a little noisy.

I have stayed at the Peristil and would never describe it as merely "adequate" - we were more than happy with the rooms (quiet, comfortably stylish, spotlessly clean and cool) and the service (helpful, friendly staff, delicious breakfast (included in the room rate) served on the terrace) , and the location is peerless. It's not a cheap option but how many hotels do you know of that come with such an imperial address.

I would definitely recommend the Peristil, with one proviso - book early - there are only 12 rooms and demand is high.

Unique Quality: Built right into the palace walls (one wall of our daughter's room was actually the ancient stone) and literally a minute's walk from the very centre of the Old City, some rooms have a view of the Peristil and the Cathedral. It's this marvellous location that makes the Peristil special but there is perhaps a downside to it - it didn't worry us but it could be if walking and carrying your bags more than from kerb to door is a problem - the whole of the old city is a pedestrianized zone and you'll have to carry your bags from your dropping off point outside the walls.

If you're bringing a car, parking can be a bit tricky - but perseverance should get you a spot in the public car park on the Riva and there's no limit on the time you can leave it there. You can walk pretty well everywhere in Split that you might want to see sightseeing and the ferry terminal is a 10 minute walk at most.

The staff are very helpful and welcoming. The hotel has no lift - and a tiny entrance - but suitcases are quickly whipped upstairs and there's someone on hand to help with bags when leaving if required.

Lunch at the terrace restaurant was excellent - and how nice to have a cool room so close at hand to return to for a short siesta after a morning's sightseeing and a long lunch

Directions: Right beside the Silver Gate into the Old City - walk through the Green Market by the wall and look for the little postern gate just before the main entry or enter by the Silver Gate itself
