Travel Blogs from Ljubljana
With nothing specific planned for today we had an easy start and made it to breakfast around 9am.
Being one of the first hotels we've stayed in that provided (non-fruit flavoured) black tea I ensured I had two of those bad boys to get me started on the right track for the day.
Following breakfast we headed to Ljubljana Castle and …
Just a quick blog tonight.
We had an easy start to the day with a wander around Zagreb for breakfast and then back to the hotel for the 12pm check out.
We caught the 12:30pm train to Ljubljana which involved a thorough look at our passports as we exited Croatia by the Croatian immigration officials and as we entered Slovenia we …
Thepedro stayed here on Apr 18, 2011 during their trip titled: Thepedro's Great Adventure.
The mountains of Austria gave way to the wooded hillsides of Slovenia as we arrived in Ljubljana.
The city was a pleasant surprise. It is small enough to walk around easily without needing public transport, and walking is made even easier because much of the central area is pedestrianised.
Our hotel was just off the main square, where …
It was a dark and stormy night...okay, so it was in the afternoon, but it was a crazy storm as we de-boarded the bus in Ljubljana. After a pleasant, partly-sunny bus ride, we had to scramble to get out rain coats and the cheap plaid umbrella we bought in Venice. Even then, we were soaked by the time we reached Hotel Emonec. We counted less than 2 …

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Emonec Ljubljana
Cheap and clean
Located right in the middle of Ljubljana, very easy to reach the main train station and bus station. All very basic, but what you would expect from a 2* hotel. Breakfast was a bonus as we weren't expecting it. Only bad points were that we were in room 101, which is straight off of reception. This meant we could hear everyone coming in and out of the main entrance and could also hear the phone ringing in reception. If you are given this room I would recommend asking to change. The double bed was essentially two single mattresses on a double frame so the join in the middle was a little uncomfortable. Apart from that, excellent service, the receptionist helped us hire a car to go skiing, and a great hotel if you just need somewhere to sleep.
Absolutely thrilled with our stay at The Emonec. I stayed here for 5 nights in January 2006, on a relaxing City Break with my Husband. We booked Our Room directly with the hotel via the website, which was very easy and straightforward. Due to the bargain price and a couple of reviews that I'd read here on TripAdvisor, I wasn't expecting much, but was very pleasantly surprised by the place when we arrived. The Hotel staff were all freindly, welcoming and chatty, the ensuite double room we stayed in was very spacious and clean, extra blankets and pillows were supplied without the need to ask, as were large towels!
Very Economic the Emonec
A great central location and a pretty good price! The rooms are very clean and nicely but plainly furnished and decorated. Booking by email could not have been more simple and efficient.
There do not appear to be too many budget hotels around the capital so for this to be so good is a real bonus.
Ljubljana is a great place and this hotel is an ideal base for both the capital and day trips to Bled for example.
There was some noise from the local disco - booming bass - but not enough to cause too much discomfort. And yes the towels are only hand towels but if you ask you will get some larger bath towels.
No better location
Tucked off of Wolfova Ulica, I have never stayed at a better value hotel than the Emonec. Our room was spotless, the bathroom the cleanest I have seen in years, and the front desk quite helpful. One night I heard a bit of noise from Presernov Trg, but nothing that kept either my wife or I awake. Met the bare necessities better than some hotels where we've paid more. And no hotel in the city can beat the location. Will stay here every time we go to Ljubljana, which after the terrific weekend we had, hopefully will be soon.
Situated in a courtyard only two minutes walk from the Triple Bridge it has a very central location in the old part of the city. Booked a triple room which had plenty of space for three and a separate shower/WC. Everything very clean in the hotel and comfortable. Self-service breakfast was adequate but avoid the watery fruit juice. Depite being so close to the centre there was no noise at night. The room worked out at £56 per night which is very good for three people in this city where it can be very difficult to find reasonably priced rooms. Had a good meal at Gostilina Sokol, in Metodov, just a few minutes from the hotel. Traditional Slovenian cuisine and very pleasant staff. Similar experience at Julija in Stari, again vey close to the hotel. Difficult to spend more than £8 per head on a meal - very good value.
Having just returned from a trip to Ljubljana with a group of friends I'm happy to say we were all very pleased with this hotel! It's great value for money, ideally located, very clean and the reception staff were very helpful and friendly. All the tourist sights are right on your doorstep, Presernov Trg, the Triple Bridge, open air market are literally a minute's walk away. The train/bus station is about 10 mins walk away at most.
We stayed at this Hotel on the 15th of September 2005 for one Night. It is ideally situated right in the heart of the city. The Hotel is very basic, but the Staff were very nice, polite and professional. We had a double room, which was so small you could not stand up properly or move around the room, the bathroom was very close to the bed which made it very inpersonal. There was also a damp smell, the room also had no Windows and only a Sky Light Window. We were very angry about this because all other rooms on the same 2nd Floor were spacious and had windows. My partner said that they gave us this room because we were British and we traditionally do not complain. If you are also staying at this Hotel, refuse room 204 and also ask to see your room firsrt, for the same price the rooms differ considerably. In conclusion, this is a cheap Hotel, very basic, reasonably clean, no frills and ideally situated. However if you are used to Radison/Hilton standards forget it, you will be disapointed. It is Cheap it cost us 59Euros for a double room, hoever the sign outside said 27 Euros and it is probably value for money. This is good hotel for the centre of Ljubljana and also a good place just to "crash". Be warned if you have car, please tell the staff to reserve you a parking space-otherwise you will have to pay for car park 100 yards away. There are only 10 car parking spaces in a very congested courtyard.
Fine for a budget hotel
The hotel is right, slap bang in the middle of Ljubljana, it would be hard to find anywhere more central (apart from the more pricey Grand Hotel Union).
The rooms are comfortable enough (although no air conditioning- we stayed when it was really hot) and the bathrooms are fine, but they only supplied us with hand towels.
The breakfast experience is acceptable if not entirely pleasant. If the hotel is busy there is a general scramble in the breakfast room over the toaster and coffee machine, and it is also quite noisy from the clattering of plates going into a dishwasher.
In all our stay was fine, and what I was expecting from a budget hotel.
This hotel has 2 stars and deserves them both. I was dropped here with a taxi arranged by the hotel from the airport (25 EUR).
This is a secreat gem in a city which lacks value for money hotels. You either have to pay way too much for an underwhelming hotel, or just as much for a hotel with bad reviews. This one was recommended to us. It is very central and walking distance to all the main sights. It is in the old town. We stayed in a double room with ensuite and chose to pay a bit extra for a room with a bit more spce. It was worth it. The hotel was very clean and quiet and comfortable. The receptionist was a bit surly but we got over that. The breakfast is basic but adequate. Highly recommended.
