    Very nice

    Great from check-in to check-out. Nice space for a solo traveler. Kitchenette was helpful. Lots of outlets and light switches around each room - very convenient. Only suggestion is to put a light in front of the door to the building - it was a little hard to see where to put my key.

    Very large apartment in restored palace, beautifully decorated and very well equipped. Staff immensely helpful, including with parking advice that saved us 81 EUR over 3.5 days. Right in the centre of historical Ljubljana with its many restaurants, shops, etc. We can't imagine staying anywhere else.

  • 8.0.Very good

    As an apartment vs. hotel there was little interaction with staff or amenities; however, that should be expected not really a negative. The location was superb, right in middle of old town. The only negative was the noise on the first night; sounded like someone pounding on an apartment door both at 0200 & 0400 with no staff on site this was uncontrolled.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The staff were terrific at all times and the location excellent. It was also nice to be in a very quiet neighborhood, despite a couple late night revellers once or twice. The room was enormous, and would have been fine at half its size. Given its enormity, it suffered a bit from a lack of furnishings. Also, although there was a small fridge, the freezer was largely useless (though that may or may not matter to some). Potential visitors must keep in mind that this is an apartment, not a hotel. If you want room service and many of the other amenities that come with a hotel, this place is not for you, very helpful staff notwithstanding (for example, although available by phone, there is no one physically present after 8 pm). The street is also pedestrian-only, meaning if you need pickups for any reason, you'll have to meet them nearby, not in front.

    Beautiful apartment with quirks

    The location of the apartment could not be better. Its close to the river and is only a couple of minutes walk from the town centre (where the Triple Bridge is). The apartment is in an old historic building. The apartment is good size, with modern simple furnishings, including a functional kitchenette. Another area that could help English speaking visitors would be the availability of English language TV channels. Even though there were numerous TV channels on the TV, most of them were locked out and there was no English language channel at all. One or two English language movie channel would be make the stay a lot more enjoyable. The areas that could be improved would be lighting, especially in the bedroom. There is not real bedside lighting and the lights were ceiling mounted and wall mounted (fairly high on the wall). There is only one ceiling light in the bathroom, making the shower area a bit dark. One the days of my visit, the night temperature was starting get low. I turned the heater all the way up but only felt a bit of warmth on the heater (hot water type heater mounted by the windows).

    We loved Ljubljana and part of the reason was the lovely accomodation we had. The hotel was in a fantastic location and the room was lovely. Staff were super helpful. A great place to stay, highly recommended.
