We stayed in the Luiza studio with a river view. We had lots of problems trying to use wifi in this room. We stayed two nights and the wifi rarely connected during our stay and when it did it was either incredibly slow or timed itself out. When I asked about availability problems in this room I was told that...

We stayed in a comfy room by the river. The price is very low considering location, cleanliness and amenities. It is seconds from cafes, restaurants and shops. The only drawback is the smell caused by humidity in the hall as well as in the room. Air-con cal solve the problem though!

Mescanka is centrally located, a minute from the river, restaurants, bars and shops. These are serviced apartments - not a hotel. Checking in and out was easy. The rooms were clean, large and well appointed with facilities to make hot drinks but not food. There are dozens of restaurants nearby so that's not a problem. I was very happy with...

We stayed here for 3 nights during our trip. The location of these apartments could not be better, our room looked out over the river and we were close to a great selection of restaurants. You could here some music from the bar below early evening time but we had no issues with noise when it came to bedtime. The...

We booked Luiza but got Lili - not a problem, as the studio was excellent in every way: clean, spacious, well equipped, comfortable bed, great views of the river. Staff were friendly and helpful. Complimentary Slovenian/Turkish coffee and coffee-making gear is a great idea (but perhaps a bit purist not to have a cafetiere as well?). Excellent experience all round...

Stayed in top floor 1-BR apartment with extra sleeping loft, perfect for families. Staff were very friendly and accommodation, helping us arrange a day trip to Lake Bled and transport to Trieste. Fantastic location in centre of old town. Good value for money.

My partner and I stayed here for one night in October and it was lovely, perfectly located in the middle of the old town overlooking the river. Room was spacious, clean and warm. Staff very friendly, spoke fluent English and happily advised us on places to visit. I'd stay here again. Carl

Our holiday in this fabulous old town was marred somewhat, by a distinct lack of accommodation to my partners mobility issues (arthritic knee ). She was frightened to use room booked, due to an unexpected complete lack of any handrails on the stairs leading directly to it. It didn't help that these stairs are contemporaneous with the age of the...

The Superior Apartment we booked was magnificent - but there were no banisters or stairs from the 1st floor to the 2nd, where our Apartment was located! As I have mobility problems and had recently had a fall - the lack of support when climbing up or down was not possible without serious consequences to my health. We asked the...

Great apartment with easy check in and check out. Clean and extremely spacious. We also liked how central the apartment was, but also quiet with the windows shut. Keep in mind that it's right in the heart of the city so there will be a bit more noise. Loved it!
