vestibul palace, split


Hotel Vestibul Palace is located in the heart of the Diocletian palace, between the emperor’s chambers and the emperor’s square “Peristile”, a place which used to be reserved only for the gods. The hotel was created by merging three palaces from three different periods: Romanic, Gothic and Renaissance, with the wall elements of Diocletian’s palace, and the original niches from the time of the Romans. This combination optimally displays the physical presence of the eras which passed, where every stone has a story to tell.

The hotel is a combination between the modern and the antique, where the modern design of the interior is interwoven with the original walls of the Roman time. The strictness of the ambiance is broken down by the natural light through the large glass roof of the lobby, and by the pleasant, evening lighting. All the furniture is hand-made and remarkably crafted.
