It hasn’t been so long when Split accommodation was considered the Achilles’ heel of Split tourism. That was one of the main reasons why visitors were discouraged to stay in Split, a day or two. Split at those times was just a springboard to reach one of Central Dalmatian islands.
The situation has greatly improved in recent years, particularly thanks to new launch of hostels, private apartments and private rooms rental. If you are looking for hotels in Split recently has been opened some very elegant ones.
After Croatia’s independence many descendants of Croatian emigrants and young entrepreneurs from different countries, have established their own accommodation amenities.
I highly recommend some of them like Villa Varos, a low budget lodging runs by Croatian New Yorker, Tchaikovsky Hostel managed by a Croatian of German origin, two Croatian-Australian girls run Split hostel Booze & Snooze, Beach Hostel at Bacvice beach, run by a friendly Norwegian girl or Al’s Place run by an Englishman.
