Britain’s The Sunday Times describes Hotel Salona Palace as “one of the 30 coolest hotels in Croatia,” and something tells us you’ll agree. This brand-new, boutique base is situated right next to the ancient Roman city of Salona, a picturesque swathe of land dotted with 2,000-year-old stone ruins, as well as precincts walked by Julius Caesar. A bit further (but still just a short distance) along the coast is Split, where you can marvel at the UNESCO-listed Diocletian’s Palace, wander the vibrant markets and people-watch at the terrace cafés along the old town’s Riva seafront promenade.
But this four-star property has more than its unique and convenient location going for it. Its 47 rooms and suites are spotless and shiny, boasting décor that takes an experimental spin on minimal-chic. In fact, you don’t need to explore the nearby wonders at all to have top-notch stay. Simply head to the spa for a blissed-out day of pampering, savor classic Croatian cuisine at the signature restaurant, or sip your way through the cocktail menu at the hotel bar on Kasjuni Beach.

How to Get There
The hotel is located at the entrance to the Archaeological Park of Salona and within 15 minutes to center of Split (bus stop in front of the hotel). Great choice if you are looking for a good connection to all the locations in Split, but you also want to relax and avoid overcrowded and loud places.
I stayed here with my husband for 5 nights and had a great vacation. Room was really big and the bed was so comfy. Breakfast is rich and varied, and a la carte restaurant offers many options to choose from. We had a dinner on our last night - ask for wine recommendation, you won't regret it!
For those who prefer snacks, supermarket and bakery are right across the street.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, especially the front desk where we got many great tips.
And last but not least - book a massage in the hotel wellness. I tried roman massage and scrub, it was super relaxing.
We hope to come back in the summer so we can enjoy the outdoor pool as well.
The hotel is apsolutely amazing.
The staff is so kind, the room was clean and comfortable, wellness is great and breakfast was varied and tasty!
The bus station is next to the hotel, so it is easy to reach the center of Split.
This hotel is situated at about 8 km from Split, a tourist attraction. We checked-into this hotel in the evening. So didn’t have much time to explore the hotel itself. There is an outdoor swimming pool on the ground floor.
There is a bakery opposite the road.
The hotel lobby is quite small with modern design. The room is quite spacious, clean and well decorated. The room comes with a fridge, safe-box and a hair-dryer. The free WIFI is not very fast, only 4.68 Mbps.
The cafeteria is also small for a comfortable seating. Breakfast is simple western cuisine with not much variety of food to choose from.
Nevertheless, we had a pleasant stay at this hotel.
Smokers smell in room
Shower temperature uncontrollable. After complaining and explaining the problem, I was told in the evening before the second night there was no problem. Nevertheless, second shower was same problem. After complaining during check out, no apology, nor any (small) compensation was offered
Spider in room.
Towel removed after first night, but not renewed.
Not cosy place, call it nothing more than a practical hotel between airport and split.
A small hotel with excellent rooms, lovely garden and pool. Breakfast was very good, amazing chocolate cake and a wide variety of food. The Staff were so helpful and friendly, particularly Adi, who gave us lots of very useful advice. Excellent value
