There are so many options now, that your first question should be:

Where should I stay in Split?

Here are Split's main neighbourhoods:

Old Town

Street in Split's Old Town
You're very much in the center of the action which is great for an urban experience. Split's best shops, restaurants, cafés and bars are just steps away. Split's old town is pedestrian only. Parking is possible outside the town center but not within it which may be an added expense for those coming with a car.

Veli Varos

Veli Varos
This traditional neighbourhood west of the Old Town is chock full of private accommodation, lining the winding streets. There are plenty of restaurants, shops and services and Marjan hill is close by. Veli Varos is a little quieter than staying in the old town but the ambiance is still very much old Split.
