Split has been on the luxury hotel map since Le Méridien Grand Hotel Lav set the tone. This was followed by the opening of the Marmont Hotel and the refurbished Marjan, with surely more to come.
Though you'll still be bombarded at the bus station and ferry terminal by old ladies offering private rooms, a new breed of apartment owners has learned to cater to Western tourists. Villa Matejuška and Villa Varoš are two examples in the Varos neighbourhood, while Dalmatian Villas is another option. Check www.diocletianpalace.com for simply furnished doubles inside the palace.
