If you want a stay in the hart of Dioocletian`s Palace, you are at the right place. Malena Palace rooms are in the best position you can imagine. We are extremely proud that our accmodation facility is located in the southern part of the Palace, which was intended for the emperor and thus part of the imperial chambers. A special feature of the residence is the west wall of Diocletian`s Palace, which is one the best presented monuments of Roman arhitecture in the world and under the protection of UNESCO. Regardless of the central position of the building, the street in wich it is located is especially calm, qiet and safe. Building is surrounded with precious archeological treasures that are just in front of you. As well as numerous restaurants and different food expirience of mediteranean food and numerous cultural happenings. Close to the Split waterfront, ferry port, bus station, east coast, ACI marina, west coast, the famous city beach Bačvice. In the summer months all events are in our vicinity, concerts, theater perfomances, street musisians, dancers, klapa songs...
