Hotel Vestibul Palace, Split
|Iza Vestibula 4, 21000, Split, Dalmatia, CROATIA.|
Description: Hotel Vestibul PalaceHotel Vestibul Palace was created by merging three palaces from three different periods; Roman, Gothic and Renaissance. Here we find the wall elements of the Diocletian palace, and the original niches from Roman time. This combination perfectly displays the physical presence of the eras which passed us by, where every stone has a story to tell. Just walk through the original Vestibul building and you are surrounded by unique city monuments. The hotel itself is located in the heart of the palace between the emperor's chambers and the emperor's square Peristile, a place which used to be reserved only for the gods.
This hotel is a combination between the modern and the antique. The modern design of the interior is interwoven with the original walls from Roman times. The austerity is softened by natural light from the large glass roof of the lobby, and by pleasant evening lighting. All the furniture is hand made and remarkably crafted.
