When planning your holidays you have to take into consideration not only the location, but also the best accommodation that will provide you and your party with value for money according to your requirements.

If you are looking to get away from daily bustle and relax with your family in privacy, than a holiday villa would be the ideal choice for you.

If you are interested to become acquainted with the city and its inhabitants, their way of life, bed and breakfasts (B&Bs) or guesthouses are the best option. The both,  provide hotel style rooms but they are typically smaller residences and you will interact with your hosts and other guests.

Bed and Breakfasts and Guesthouses can be found both inside and out of old Split city center.

When you visit a country as a ‘tourist’, you can often miss out of many aspect of the country. Following my Split accommodation tips, there is no better way to experience another country or culture than by actually living in it.

The best places for this are Split home-stays or inns accommodation type.

If the hotels are the only accommodation type you want to book, than they range from very basic budget-style to extremely luxurious accommodation.

Among Split hotels can find hotels according your interest and desires, like design hotels, romantic, beach, business, spa hotels or hotels with pools or even boat hotels.

Split is not a big city but knowing the exact location of your accommodation, can save you time and money on bus rides from/to the town center.

Quality budget accommodation has become more accessible in Split in the last couple of years but it mostly includes  hostels. Private accommodation is a good alternative.

This is particularly evident during the high summer season, if you are getting to Split by bus, looking for private accommodation. You may find yourself surrounded be pushy local women offering ‘sobe’ (rooms available).

Check twice where is a lodging located, to avoid unpleasant surprises. Among so many offers you can always find a decent accommodation only ten minutes walk to the center.

Follow Split accommodation tips to find a longing that will satisfy either the quality and location and chose Split ferry port accommodation to be close to most important places of interest and not far away of your ferries connections to Central Dalmatia islands.
