Reviewed 26 October 2012

We loved the Mescanka, it is located facing the river surrounded by restaurants and the wonderful old town of Ljubljana. Walk out the door and you are steps from it all, great food, nice walks. The apartment is well fitted out and very comfortable.

Highly recommend both the city and this apartment. Saša immediately made us comfortable and helped us settle in to our studio apartment. The cost is very reasonable at 80 Euros per night. The studio is air conditioned, has free WiFi and TV.

We stayed 3 nights in a first floor apartment overlooking the river. The apartment is in the heart of the old city. Lively bars, cheery cefes and wonderful restaurants are literally a few steps away. We contacted the owner on arrival at the train station and a taxi picked us up near the McDonalds sign outside the station and dropped us to the shuttle pick-up point. The shuttle took us to the apartment. The owner arranged one of the approved London taxis for our return to the station. Wonderful service! We had no problem with noise from the bar beneath the apartment. We were quite comfortable with the windows closed and slept soundly. All the old city attractions are within easy walking distance and the street musicians add charm and style to the city.
Apartment Mescanka provides ideal accommodation for independent travellers who enjoy immersing themselves in the life of the cities they visit. Don't hesitate. Book now.

We stayed for 3 nights in the Mescanka on the top floor; you cannot get a better location in the beautiful city of Ljubljana. Once you stepped out of the apartment doors you were in the middle of the stretch of bars by the river.
The apartment is very easy to find althouh our shuttle from the airport dropepd us by the 3 bridges, it was just a short walk to the apartment where the really friendly owner met us and showed us into our room.
The only negative aspect of our stay was that we found the apartment quite noisy, this was due to it being next to/above a bar which seemed to stay open all night; this was easily remedied though by wearing ear plugs.
Ljubljana is easily one of the best cities I have ever visited and staying in the Mescanka really allowed us to do whatever we wanted; if you want a more independent experience in this fantastic city do not hesitate about booking here.

We are happy to see that you liked Mescanka and the independent way of travel, which we support. As Mescanka has a central location within the pedestrian zone with cafes, the area is lively. However, the double glazed windows prevent the sound from coming in, so our guests can choose, whether to enjoy the buzz of the river bank or remain in silence by closing the windows. Best, Sasa

If you are keen on a 24h-reception-desk with a lot of staff around you will be disappointed. To us, the Mescanka was everything that we needed, a simple, Ikea-style apartment in a central location. We paid on arrival and ordered one of the cost-free electric cars to pick us and our luggage up to drive to one of the nearby car parks - which was extra fun for our kids.

We really enjoyed out stay, the location was very central and the room was clean and modern. We found Mescanka easily from the directions given. Just a short walk from the train station. We had a room overlooking a small side street, with the windows shut we heard nothing. The Mescanka is perfectly located to explore the wonderful city of Ljubljana.
