What a beautiful way to arrive in Croatia! Right in the heart of historic Split is this charming small hotel. The Manager was absolutely wonderful, had our rooms ready early for us and was incredibly helpful to guide us to the best restaurants. He also arranged our transport which after so many long flights was a welcome relief. The hotel itself is absolutely stunning. It looks newly renovated and everything was in pristine condition. If you want a charming place with excellent service right in the heart of everything you want to see and do, this would be my recommendation.

We stayed at Vila Nepos for 5 nights and were overjoyed with the apartment. From the moment we checked in Chris (one of staff members) welcomed us and helped with parking and other useful locations. The apartment was very clean and spacious and had everything you would need. The location is amazing with a short walk to Split’s most interesting sites. The only downside is parking can be a challenge, however we were directed to a free parking area and found a loading zone when it came to checking out so this was not too much of a hassle. Breakfast was nice, however it did not match the luxury feel of the apartment. Despite these small issues we would 100% recommend the apartment.

We spent 2 nights at Vila Nepos and had an incredible time. Cannot beat the location or the history of this hotel. The staff is very friendly and professional and provided excellent dining and tour recommendations. Great place for couples or families - will recommend to friends and hope to return in the future.

Room Tip: Parking is a challenge- but that wasn't considered when building was constructed 1700 years ago.

One of the best hotels I've ever visited. An excellent apartment with big rooms, kitchen, a laundry machine and a dish washer. Everything was good quality and very clean. Nice beds. The service was excellent and breakfast was good. We travelled with three kids and the apartment was very good for the kids as well. We had the stroller too and there wasn't an elevator in the hotel (there was a luggage lift), but it was okay and the staff helped us with them.

Vila Nepos is an accommodation like none other!! We knew we were staying in an apartment but the photos did not prepare us for the luxurious, enormous, and spectacular space we would stay for three nights. We could have spent our time in Split just in this apartment. The apartment was meticulously decorated with fine antiques, paintings, sculptures, furniture, and such attention to every detail. It had a full kitchen with anything and everything you would need including a washing machine and dishwasher and tvs with netflix!. The ceilings were the highest I have ever seen but still felt cozy. The location can not be beat as its right within the palace and centrally located to harbor and all the sights. Everything was so accessible which made it convenient to make a quick stop and rest at the apartment when needed during touring Split. Nives, Mario, and Kristian were wonderful! They were very personable and helpful making sure we were happy. It was interesting hearing about the extraordinary time, money, and effort that went into restoring this historic setting. We truly felt like royalty staying here. It will be hard to match this on any of our travels!
