Great location, once found & excellent hostess

Posted Jun 29, 2017
Pros: Our room was a great size with a fully-renovated bathroom. Her rooms are located inside a (possibly?) historic building which could use some TLC.
Location: Within the old Palace walls are a number of ancient sites worth visiting. Just outside is a 'green market' where you must know competitive prices ;)
Malena tries her utmost to ensure her guests' comfort & peaceful stay. I loved the scene - but would definitely avoid visiting in the summer again: too hot (30'C+, which was expected - I just underestimated my tolerance ;) and far too crowded (for me). The old city / palace is steps away from the train, regional bus, & ferry terminals (all of which are steps away from each other). There's a large, fast, modern catamaran passenger ferry (in addition to vehicle ferries) linking Split with points south - and let's you avoid exiting & re-entering Croatia when going to/from Dubrovnik when using the road (by car or bus).

Great location, warm hosts

Posted Jun 11, 2017
We only stayed at Malenas place for one night but wished we could have stayed longer! Malena was sweet and offered us juice, cookies and cherries upon arrival. Very cozy and clean suite, fast wifi and right in the heart of Split. I would definitely stay here again, thank you Malena & husband!

Great location and host. The room is up to date, tight on space but expected due to the great location in the old walled palace.

It's very close to everywhere! Malena and Milan are both super helpful and friendly. I regret I stay here only a night... I will definitely recommend this place:)

Lovely hotel in the heart of the old roman palace

Posted Oct 23, 2016
Location: Right in the old part of Split, also not far from the harbor, plenty of day trips etc, and good bus links if you want to explore further afield.
Lovely clean room with en-suite shower & toilet. Basically this is a converted apartment with about 2-3 rooms. Malena was so helpful and friendly, offered advice, info and even some homemade food from time to time. The hotel in on the 3rd floor, no lifts of course, but you couldn't have a more central location right in the heart of the old roman palace, more or less opposite what is now the cathedral, though it can be tricky to find for the 1st time. We did wonder being so central if noise might be a problem at night but not at all. I cannot rate this Hotel highly enough, excellent value and as I said Malena is so friendly and clearly enjoys meeting people and wants to help your stay. Unfortunately we slightly damaged the shower holder, we offered to pay but Malena wouldn't have any of it. Highly recommend it.

Hard working couple made our stay memorable, Malena also leaves fresh fruits for her guests... a laundry service is also offered at reasonable cost, a boon for us cyclists!

Wonderful guest house in centre of old town

Posted Sep 18, 2016
I had a lovely stay at Malena's guest house. She was a kind and charming host who offered me fresh fruit and juice on arrival and helpful information on what to do and see in Split. The room was modern, clean and quiet and the apartment was centrally located right in the middle of the old town.
