... around the castle, and climb the tower which had great views. The castle is now a central hub for educational trips, conferences, party's, socialising with lots of high end restaurants. It really was a nice place to visit, great to have in the centre of the city. We didn't get out untill after dark so we stayed in town again not far from the ...
... This involves trying to sway and gyrate in a mick jagger way under the flow similar to a toddler's watering can. Each gout ******** by furiously pressing a button and all the while wondering if it would a) run out or b) get the soap off before Munich. It was ok in the end.
Ljubljana was a huge disappointment at first. The 'square'outside the station is a scruffy car park, but it got better from there. The hostel itself ...

A shop on the corner supplied me with a few buns and some slices of cheese, good for a light lunch in a park in Ljubljana with and organ playing on one side and an accordion player on the other side but… instead of trying to outdo each other the accordion player had stopped his own repertoire and now was playing the same tunes as the organ. It sounded like a stereo performance. A nice introduction to what I always believed to be a boring city. By ...

It was another glorious day in Italy as I bid farewell to Venice. Our lovely Tour Leader, Antonia met myself and the 6 other fellow tourers at our hotel and after a quick meet and greet we were taking one last short stroll along the cobbled streets of Venice as we made our way to the awaiting van. Oh how I just love Venice... it has a magic about it which just draws me in and has me wanting to explore each and every alleyway, canal and bridge.

Historical Traveler Reviews Antiq Hotel Ljubljana
The Antiq Hotel is a gem. An atmospheric inn on a small, quiet square at the base of Ljubljana's castle hill at the end of the lively Old City district, it was perfectly situated for exploring the compact capital's sights, relaxing at a nearby cafe, or just wandering along the lovely Ljubljanica River. The decor in the lounge is elegant, the staff were exceptionally friendly, and the hearty breakfast featured a wide sampling of treats including brie and gorgonzola cheese, lox, freshly baked croissants (their aroma awoke me in the morning as it wafted upstairs), fresh fruits, and rich coffee. I stayed in two different rooms here, one of which was the cheapest and smallest with an indoor atrium view and shower/sink and toilet down the hall, the latter down a few steps. Even though it was much less than the en suite rooms, I would recommend the former as they are much more spacious and convenient. However, the tiny room still offered privacy at a price not easily found in this city, especially for such a delightful setting.
An internet acquaintence who lives in Ljubljana had this hotel on their list of possibilities for our stay; after checking on the internet, we decided to go there - extremely glad we did! The location is great, right on a square on the edge of the town center. Actually finding it and finding a place to park are a bit of a problem, but once you do the staff will actually "plug the meter" for you. The rooms, like the city, are sort of out of the early fifties, but this in no way should detract fromthe enjoyment. The rooms are large and airy and have all the creature comforts one could hope for. And the staff would probably do anything for you - and without expectation of a tip! And if your WiFi isn't working (like ours), they have free computers for your use.
Wow, what an absolute gem this gorgeous little hotel is. Set right in the heart of the old town yet for us it proved to be a little bit of Paradise. I can only comment on our room as I know that factors change from room to room in most hotels. The Antiq does not feel like a hotel at all but rather a lovely old home. We stayed in room 13 (previously No 9) and this 2 level apartment with a tiny romantic terrace came with all those little luxuries which make a stay so special from the ginormous bath tub to the flufffy bath robes and slippers to the prettiest breakfast room I have ever seen. It looked out onto the flower filled back gardens of neighbours and also the famous castle.
First off... don't trust online booking. Even if you get an online confirmation, call or fax the hotel. When we called after reading a comment here about the hotel's nonfunctional website, sure enough, the hotel did not have a reservation for us.
Here is a 4-star hotel that actually rents out their tiny (7 sq.m.) rooms. I tried one, thinking I'd save money, but upgraded quickly the next morning when I found out how bad it was. (I could have done it if I were young, but no longer at my age). I changed to a nicer room... but there was no table - no place to put anything down on, so you had to unpack on the floor, the bed, the sofa. The TV was so high-tech that 20 minutes of trying wouldn't get me a picture (the man at the desk had never had to deal with it before, but he finally got it working). It's a shame to have a pretty piece of real estate like this hotel, but totally miss the basics of running a hotel. Hotel owners have to realize that when they invest to upgrade their hotel, guests expect the basics. Another example: I asked for a double sheet for my bed (a double), instead of the duvet. When I returned, there was only a single sheet, and they don't carry double sheets.
We recently spent 3 nights at the Antiq Hotel. This is an older building that has been recently remodeled. We had one of the apartments on the top floor. It was a lovely apartment (although the kitchen needed to be better stocked- it was woefully lacking) I wouldn't choose it for us again. I would take one of the rooms on the lower floors. It was 3 long flights of stairs up - no elevator- and then the bedroom was another flight of stairs above the rest of the apartment and the bathroom. There were no handrails so it was pretty precarious going to and from the bathroom in the middle of the night. This is not a hotel for the disabled.
We stopped for 4 nights over Easter & had a really great time. When we arrived, we weren't given the room we had requested but we were in fact allocated a larger room so we decided to stick with that even though it had brown carpet & flimsy purple curtains !!!! Nice view of the square though. At all times the staff were exceptionally helpful and very polite - no problems there. We thought the breakfast room was rather small for the number of guests (the hotel was full) and wonder how they will cope when the six new rooms are open. All in all though we enjoyed it very much.
Caution with online booking
I strongly caution everyone not to rely on reservations made on Antiq's website. We booked a room online and the booking was confirmed online. It was only because of a problem with the credit card screen that we contacted the hotel to give them that information. They responded that the website is not functioning correctly and that we in fact did NOT have a reservation and that the hotel was completely booked during our desired stay. Had we relied on the website confirmation, we would have arrived at a full hotel!
My boyfriend and I visited the Antiq Hotel in December 2006. We had a fantastic experience: it felt as if we were the only guests in the hotel. It's in a great, central location in the attractive Old Town. Breakfast is particularly worth mentioning - it was hard not to eat a three-course breakfast, the food was so fantastic! Staff are friendly and polite, and the family-run nature of the hotel means that there's a very pleasant feeling to the place. Our room was clean and attractive with all the usual facilities. We were able to access the internet for free via a computer near our bedroom. All in all, a fantastic experience. I very much hope to go back.
Splendid personal attention
A party of 3 couples, each over 55, stayed at this 10 room hotel for three nights in mid December 2006. From the moment we booked in to the moment we left we felt as though our comfort and interests were uppermost in the hotel staffs collective mind.
There was a log fire in one reception room, comfortable seats throughout, internet access on evey floor (free), and each of our rooms had a separate area just as shown on the web site. A truly wonderful and relaxing experience.
