Villa Bellevue: Just Romance

Absolutely value for money. The villa is situated over the town of Portoroj. But you can easily get to the sea on foot through narrow streets. It takes about 5 minutes (when you go down) and a little bit more on your way back. It may be alittle bit hard for elder people as these streets are rather steep.
The only problem is to get there by car. Though the owner sent us a map with a notice that we shouldn't go in the direction of the center of Portoroj (he should have mention that we shouldn't go to Portoroj at all ). But the map was not detailed enough, so we had to ask for directions in Portoroj Tourist Office.
That was the only problem. The service, rooms etc were absolutely great.

The villa has a small pool. You may call it indoor, as it has got walls and a roof above it, but I doubt that you can use it in winter time. For those who doesn't feel like going to the sea there is a sun-terrace just near the pool. But actually the rooms have very big balconies with great sea-view, so you can do without it. I don't know may be not all the rooms, but at least the 2 rooms that we booked had it: )

One more 'minus' - the breakfast is not envisaged. They have a machine that sells tea and coffee in plastic glasses and a machine with snacks. We just bought everything that we needed for the breakfast in the nearest supermarket (just on the way to the sea)

camping

Sleeping in a tent in camping area is the best way to get to know the atmosphere. In Slovenia most of the camping has a magnificent view of a landscape

great views behind the campground

Pr' Matjon: A country style apartment in Bled

The apartment was new and well-maintained. Whatever we needed, the wonderful host and hostess provided. Very quiet and peaceful.It would be better if you had a car. We didnt so we had to walk about 1km out to the main road where Lake Bled is. It was good exercise though as it was a country road.

Very very peaceful surroundings.
Great for walks
You get to use the computer in the "lobby" for free.
Also offer service of a Finnish and a bio sauna with selected essential oils.

TOURIST FARM HLEBEC: STAY ON AN INCREDIBLE WINE FARM

Wow! We spent several nights at the Tourist Farm Hlebec in Kog, Slovenia. It was beyond wonderful. The family grows its wine from the earth to the bottle, and it's delicious. The family welcomes you with a wonderful room, delicious food, and lots of yummy wine. While we there there, they were setting in a new vineyard, and we helped plant a few grapevines ourselves.
The cost is 28 Euro a day per person with breakfast. If you want dinner, it's a bit more. The cooking is fabulous. You can eat with the family or in the separate dining room.

You are out of the way, in a place of peace. You can hike or ride a bike among the vineyards, and you can taste some delicious wine. I would give Milan Hlebec and his family a huge 10! It was a wonderful stay for us.

Celica Hostel - world renowned: Prison break???

I stayed at Celica Hostel, (a former prison!) in Metalkova. That part of the city looks a bit run down from outside as it used to be army barracks once.

But the hostel itself is very nice, clean, and modern. They have their own website, and best to book direct as they can advise you on which rooms/cells are available.

Rates start from 12e for the apartments, the cells are a bit pricier at 25e per person in a 2-person cell, but the staff is nice to advice you if there will be another occupant, so you could get a cell to yourself for the 25e instead of otherwise securing the whole thing for 50e!!! I was lucky to get the whole cell for a single occupancy rate :-)

But the hostel itself is very nice, clean, and modern.

Celica is voted as one of the best hostels in the world, and for good reason.

It has huge common rooms, several of them, a good range of items for the breakfast, friendly staff, a separate luggage room downstairs where you can securely leave your stuff pre/post check-in/out.

There's a large night club right next door where the local students tend to go. Good atmosphere.

Herons Place: Our Holiday in Slovenia

We chose Slovenia this year because it was somewhere different. My family stayed in this house and we were delighted by the pretty valley with wonderful mountain views. My family really enjoyed the local walks and scenery. The house was well appointed and plenty big enough with 4 good size bedrooms. We particularly liked sitting outside on the terrace taking shelter from the sun and looking at the mountains.

This part of Slovenia is called the Savinja Valley near a small town called Gornji Grad. My wife chose the area it because it seemed more unspoilt than the more popular tourist area of Bled. It seemed just as beautiful to us but without the lake!

We recommend this central area of Slovenia because it is very pretty with many sights to see and lots to do. Also the food and drink is so much cheaper than the larger European countries we usually visit.

Patrick

Definitely great views. Kitchen and bathrooms were all nice and new and everything seemed available except a dishwasher. The dining room was big too. We enjoyed watching the deer walk by the front of the house and the buzzards circling overhead throughout the day.

Fabulous farmstays!

In deciding on Slovenia as a destination for a family holiday, the 'clincher' was the wealth of farmstay options. Farmstay is big business in Slovenia (the last estimate I saw indicated that there were around 400 tourist farms) and is an absolute delight for those travelling with small children who want them to have the opportunity to allow their offspring to run free without worrying about them demolishing the designer decor of a hotel!

The sheer variety of tourist farms is both unexpected and extremely welcome. There are working farms, organic farms, wine farms, game farms, horse studs, farms specialising in gastronomy, farms with historical houses ... you name it, and there's probably a farm that meets your specification! The farms are fairly well distributed across the country, so although there is a preponderence in the more established tourist areas, there are usually options even in the less touristed areas.

Farm stays are usually structured on a half board basis (ie. bed, breakfast and evening meal). Depending on the size and sophistication of the farm you choose, meals may range from conventional hotel-style table service to more informal arrangements where guests dine around a single table (which usually makes for interesting conversation). In most establishments, the meal has three courses, usually with a limited choice of main course. The food usually comprises generous portions of hearty and tasty Slovenian fare (although is probably more upmarket in more select establishments such as farms which specialise in gastronomy, wine growing or venison raising). Breakfasts are similarly generous and usually self-service buffet style. We really liked the fact that this arrangement gave us the opportunity to try traditional Slovenian fare that we might not have identified (or selected) from a restaurant menu. It appears that tourist farms are generally licenced to serve alcohol and many do a brisk lunch trade, particularly over weekends and holiday periods.

Accommodation options range from converted farm buildings to purpose-built accommodation. As usual, you get what you pay for, with many (but not all) offering en suite rooms. We did struggle a bit to find farms that offered self-contained family units (ie. two or more bedrooms with a shared living room and bathroom) to give us some flexibility should the weather turn nasty, but there didn't seem to be too much of this available. Most bathrooms also seem to feature showers rather than baths.

The three tourist farms that we stayed on are reviewed elsewhere under my Slovenia travel pages.

My only minor niggle? The miniscule size of the bath towels, which are more suited to drying your hands than drying yourself after a shower! We mentioned this in passing to one of our hosts, and he conceded that this comment had been made more than once - however, although he was an extremely obliging sort, he didn't seem to have been motivated enough to do anything about it! We could only assume that towels of minimalist proportions are what the Slovenians favour in their own homes, and that larger alternatives are not favoured/not available/too expensive. If you think that this will bother you, then I suggest that you indulge yourself, and pack a beach towel of your own: chances are that if you visit in summer, you'll want to have a swim somewhere along the line, in which case it can just do double duty!

So many trees and birds

We had driven through only 10 miles of Slovenia before when visiting Croatia, so decided to go back and see some more. We were stunned by the thousands of trees and the very tame birds in the country.

Fluxus Hostel: Close and Convienent

This hostel is located in the heart of Ljubljana. It is a short walk to all the major tourist attractions and department stores. The hostel is small, it only has beds for 14 people. It was clean and well kept. However, there is only one toilet and shower for all those people. So I can imagine in the summer when it is full that might be a problem. The people that worked there were friendly and helpful.

Internet is offeres free of charge as was laundry. There is a lso a small kitchem if you want to cook your own meals.

The people that worked there really made the stay memorable. There was this lady (I can't remember her name now) that was really the hostel mom. She made sure that you were dressed properly before you went out into the cold and hung around and watched TV and movies with teh guests. She was really quite funny. The owner also made an appearance as well. He came and chatted with all the guests at some point.

Triglav apartments- Stara Fuzina: Bohinj accomdation-cheap and good

If you stay in bohinj you should check the Triglav apartments in Stara Fuzina- a village very close to the lake and an excellent starting point for your trip. this hostel is tidy, quiet and equipped with everything you need. You get a nice cooking area, small TV, bar&restaurant with stunning view of the lake, and from some of the rooms-also the amazing view of the lake. very cheap as well!

Pension Stare: Next to Lake Bohinj

Pension Stare is a small family-run pension with clean & simple rooms (with balcony) located in the quiet and tiny hamlet of Ukanc just a short walk from Lake Bohinj at the western tip of the lake. Many hiking paths in the Triglav National Park start right here! The friendly and helpful owner Mr. Stare is fluent in Slovenian, English and German.

Garni Hotel Berc: Luka - A great host!

We loved staying here! Our host Luka was really friendly and helpful. We found the location pretty close to the lake and the hotel/guesthouse itself was as clean as a whistle and really attractive. See the images!

Koper - Hotel Vodišek: Halfway between the Old Town and station

This 3* hotel is located about half way between the train station and the Old Town and is part of a small shopping complex. The room was a good size with a good sized double-bed, TV, fridge (which was empty), phone, a/c and plenty of storage. The bathroom was clean with WC, sink, hairdryer and a good shower. Breakfast was the usual continental affair that was served in the hotels small Bavarian inspired restaurant/bar. It was good to come back after a day’s sightseeing and sit outside and enjoy a beer. Pay in cash (euros) so you get a better rate.

Maribor: Hotel Orel

This 3* hotel is very well located, being just over the square from the City Castle. The whole hotel has been renovated recently and it shows. The room I had was virtually sparkling. It had a king-size doublebed at one end and a sofa, desk and walldrobe at the other separated by a TV on top of a cabinet housing a mini-bar and shelves. The room was really what I would call a suite than just a double bedroom but I believe all the rooms are like this. The WC was separate from the main bathroom which had a doublesize walk-in shower with sliding door, sink and hairdryer. Breakfast was the usual continental affair plus some cooked food such as scrambled eggs and sausages. This was one of the best hotel rooms I’ve ever stayed at and the out-of-season price during the summer makes it a real bargain. Also included in the price is free admission to the Fontana spa complex which is well worth going to.
