5/5 Excellent

Amazing stay in the heart of Split
Malena Palace is the perfect stay in Split. It is located inside the Diocletian Palance, 2 min walk from the Peristil (the palace square) and I had a view of the Saint Domnius Bell Tower from our window. There is also a small terrace with a better view. The room was sparkling clean and we were greeted with homemade lemonade. Also before the checkout, we were offered apples. Best accommodation in Split 100% We stayed there for 2 nights and could not have ask for more.

The location is great if you like to be in the heart of the palace. We found it very convenient for restaurants, small grocery stores, shopping, booking tours, and ATMs. The managers were very nice people and helpful too. Storage for luggage after check out. Nice little rooftop area for enjoying a happy hours overlooking the rooftops. Small fridge in the room is always appreciated! Laundry is available too. We thoroughly enjoyed our 6 night stay.
