Split Downtown

The country's most promising all-round-city-break destination


From Couchsurfers and the legendary ‘Sobe’ ladies, to exclusive waterfront hotels and luxury apartments, and including an explosion of hostels to reflect the city’s growing popularity, there is no shortage of choice when it comes to places to stay. A word of warning however - book early!


The Split hotel scene has undergone something of a renaissance in recent years, with much better choice at the quality end of the market. The opening of the Meridien Lav in Podstrana was followed by Radisson Blu, while there is also an increase in the availability of boutique hotels, of which Hotel Vestibul was recently named in Fodor's Top 100 hotels in the world.

Split tourism is booming, and there has been a significant upswing in the city's tourism forunes in recent years, as travellers spend longer in the Dalmatian capital, where once it merely served as the so-called Gateway to the Islands. As such, there has been an explosion in backpacker accommodation to meet the need, and nowhere is this truer than the hostel sector. Many old buildings in the palace have been given over to hostel space, and there are some very cool - and affordable - hostels to stay within the 1700 year-old walls. For a little more still, check out perhaps the best-known of them all, Goli and Bosi or 101 Dalmatian.

Private Accommodation

The traditional backbone of tourist accommodation in Croatia, many tourists end up staying in private apartments or houses during their stay, and Split has a wide selection, from the simple room to five-stary luxury villas. Another trend within the palace walls has been to convert buildings into luxury apartments, and there are plenty of gems to be found.
The 'Sobe' lady are still out in force (signs saying 'sobe' - or room) meeting the ferries and buses, but the tendency these days is for tourists to book their accommodation in advance. And with the popularity of Split, it is worth booking early, especially in and around the Ultra Europe festival in July (11-13).

Camp Stobreč is situated 6km south of Split's city centre; the nearest campsite to Split. It is located in the coastal town of Stobreč off the coastal highway heading from Split towards Omiš, nestled on the edge of the water. The camp is situated on a little peninsula, meaning it is surrounded by beaches on two sides and a river on the third.
