Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Peristil Split
Fantastisches Hotel - ein Muss, wenn Sie Split besuchen!!
Dieses Hotel wird in keinem Reiseführer aufgeführt, sollte es aber, denn es ist der beste Ort zum Übernachten in Split. Das Personal ist sehr freundlich, die Zimmer schön eingerichtet und das Frühstück ist großartig. Wir waren über drei Nächte im Juli dort und ich werde nie vergessen, wie wir am Morgen immer als allererstes auf die Altstadt von Split geschaut haben und über uns Tausende von Schwalben flogen. Eine kleine Warnung: die Kirchturmglocken können sehr laut sein und sie läuten am Sonntag schon ganz früh morgens!
Hotel Peristil - What a Delightful Hotel
We stayed here for 2 nights in May 2006 - I chose this hotel based on TripAdivisor reviews but be aware that they are now recommended by Frommer's Croatia 2006 (published May 1,2006) and rated as a "Find". I showed the staff the review and they were so excited to see it. The hotel is well located right next to the Silver Gate so easily accessible if you arrive by ferry or the Croatia Airlines airport bus. Our room was on the first floor and was quite roomy - large bed, desk, large armoire and luggage bench, extra small chair, TV and mini-fridge (you can put your own items in there!!), nice wood floors, a small but very adequate bathroom with stall shower. The restaurant Tifani is also quite good. Breakfast is not a buffet like some other larger hotels, but the staff will make whatever you request. We enjoyed our stay - our room was on the first floor overlooking the restaurant terrace but we did not open the window as it was rather warm so we ran the a/c - yes, a/c and it was WONDERFUL!!! Highly recommend this hotel, but you will need to reserve way in advance because they have only 12 rooms and the word is out. If you can stay here, you will have a terrific experience.
Peristil was perfect
we just returned from a 13 day vacation in croatia. we (a family of 4 with two sons 22 and 26) stayed at the hotel peristil for two nights. the location is right in the heart of town- close to everything and attached to diocletian's palace- very cool!. the rooms are lovely, very comfortable and modern. eventhough our room overlooked a busy restaurant and gathering place, when we put the air conditioning on and closed the windows it was very quiet. the breakfasts were very good- they made eggs and omelets to order among other things to eat. the management was very accomodating and helpful. all in all the hotel was spotlessly clean and "the best choice" for a hotel stay in split.
Hotel Peristil Was The Best!
I just returned from Split 3 weeks ago, and I stayed in the little published, Hotel Peristil. Apparently, they just opened it last year (that's why it's not in the guidebooks yet). The rooms are clean and decorated very nicely. Some of rooms have parts of original walls of Diocletian's Palace which is 1700 years old! I stayed in room 304, which had a small sitting area with these original walls.
The hotel is right in the center of town, you can walk everywhere. It's close to the "Riva" and an easy walk to the ferries for excursions.
When I stayed at Hotel Peristil, I was traveling by myself. The staff did a wonderful job making me feel welcome. Every time I walked through the doors, they greeted me with a friendly hello. The proprietor even walked me to a bar late at night to make sure I was taken care of. We even shared a bottle of wine one evening and had some interesting conversations. He knows a lot about Croatian history.
The complimentary breakfast was amazing; fresh eggs and breads were out of this world (even at noon!)! I also had dinner there twice and enjoyed both meals. They even have a great selection of Croatian wines.
I cannot imagine a better hotel to stay in. Hotel Peristil has it all...value, location, friendliness, and clean!
Great Hotel/Great Hosts
We originally followed the Lonely Planet guide book to find hotels in Split but were sorely disappointed when we ended up way out of old town amongst some high rise standard hotel types.
We decided to trust our instinct and went into the old town/walled city and came across Hotel Peristil. This hotel made our stay in Split a very memorable one. Situated right on the main square, it is a beautiful, reasonably priced, cozy place with new furnishings and clean surroundings. What makes this place extra special is the proprietor that owns it. The proprietor was so attentive and warm, jumping up to greet us whenever we came in, and making special accomodations for us such as adding a space heater and letting us use his corkscrew. He even let us eat dinner in the restaurant (attached) on New Year's eve after hours when everything else was closed. It was like he was welcoming us into his home.
The other thing to note with this place is that it is quiet. Despite being there on New years on the main square, the double paned windows kept out noise and I slept like a baby. All this with inexpensive prices to boot! This place is such a gem!
Fantastic Hotel - A must if you visit Split !!
This hotel is not listed in many guide books but must be the best place to stay in Split. The staff are really friendly, the rooms very well decorated and the breakfast is great. We stayed for 3 nights in July and I will never forget looking out over Split old town first thing in the morning with thousands of swallows flying over head. One word of caution - the church bells can be very loud and start very early on a Sunday morning !
Adored Hotel Peristil
This hotel is not listed in any of the three books I purchased on Croatia, and I booked this hotel based solely on the one review I found on trip advisor, but that was the very best decision I ever made!!! We stayed 4 nights and found this hotel to be absolutely lovely! The location is perfect! The rooms are clean and decorated very nicely. The staff went out of their way to make our stay delightful. They even helped a friend of ours who was not staying at the hotel with some phone calls that required translations! Even when we had checked out of the hotel, as we were planning to cruise the islands for a week, we were delayed due to weather and as our group was wondering the palace grounds, I desperately needed to use a toilette, and sheepishly stepped inside the lobby and asked to use the facilities in their bar/dining area, I was met with a wonderful greeting for not only me to come in, but all of us were ushered inside (it was raining) and they were so very gracious!! The breakfast was amazing, fresh eggs and breads were out of this world! We had dinner there two nights and enjoyed both meals. They have a wonderful selection of Croatian wines and we took a bottle of 'Bubbly' to our room each night! I would stay here again and again!!! Thank you Hotel Peristil for the wonderful experience you provided us!
Very friendly and good standard
Hi, we stayed in this hotel 2 nights and can very much recommend it to others. The location is perfect, breakfast is very good and the staff helpful and friendly. It offers good value too. It was very clean and the rooms were cosy and of a good standard. We are comming back!
Great place within the old town and Diocletian's Palace
I booked the Hotel Peristil based on the Trip Advisor review I read along with the fact that other hotels in Split didn't get back to me when I requested reservations. We stayed there two nights.
It is a great, newly refurbished hotel right within the walls of the old city. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good.
The best thing about the hotel was definitely its location. It is within walking distance of the ferry and the bus station. It was amazing to walk right out of the hotel door and see the 1700 year old walls as well as Peristil Square.
A warning about Split...it pretty much shuts down (other than palace and restaurants) on the weekends. So if you are planning to do any shopping (and there are some good stores there), go to Split during the week.
Sleep Luxuriously within 1700 year old Roman Ruins!
What a treat! This small family-run hotel is within the walls of Old Town! Exposed stone in your modernly appointed elegant room, with windows looking down on the market and cafes. You are treated like family and the restaurant is the best one we dined in our 4 days in Split. Everything about this experience was elegant and easy! We stayed up late one night sipping Grappa with the owners and soaking in as much local color as we could. On my last day, one of the owners helped me with my bags all the way down to the pier to catch the Croatia Airline bus to the airport. What a dream. I can't reccomend this hotel enough!!!!

Travelled from Paris today to Split and spent the late afternoon exploring the wonderful old town of Split. By Cameron Today we went to the Paris airport to catch our plane to Split in Croatia. I packed all my things and looked out the window at the Eiffel Tower. After this we left in a taxi to the airport. when we got there we had to queue up for …
... thing that got knocked around easily from waves. So we pretty much crawled from the bar to the top of the boat so no "man overboard" would need to be called! We arrived at our first destination Hvar, normally the rep would come on and say "Welcome to the sunniest island in Croatia, Hvar" but of course not. It poured rain and stormed. Our boat was rocking like crazy! We couldn't go to the famous bar Carpe Diem as you need to get a speed boat across so we chilled ...
... so I said "ok, I will just come for a coffee" he then replies "we are a restaurant not a coffee shop, you must go somewhere else"!! Ok I thought and so off I plodded and finally ended up along the way in a coffee shop with loads of cakes and all in the window. After a chocolate cake and coffee lunch I wandered off further along the small streets of the town. As it was so warm I was desperate to go for a swim in the wonderful waters of the Adriatic sea and so needed to ...
... day we then drove up into the hills above Split to a castle that had guarded a pass since the time of the Ottoman Empire. Very impressive and spectacular views. We drove back to Split to walk around Diocletian's palace from the Roman period. The palace has survived over the centuries because it has adapted. Roman walls with 16th century tenement housing built on to it. I even found a plaque noting that Sigmund Freud ...

We tasted some very delicious Croatian wines, paired with local cheese, jams and meats – it was incredible! Afterwards we went for a long wander through the town again, a bit more packed being a Friday night, and just took a long evening stroll. Very much looking forward to boarding our gullet tomorrow – hopefully we'll be able to find it in the ...
