Right on the sea: Piran: A place of your own is fun
In case this is useful, I was in Piran in September. The "Youth Hostel" called Val charged 25 Euros per person, which was steep. A one-bedroom apartment with kitchen, living-dining-room and full bathroom was 27 Euros a night, minimum 3 nights, so we took it. It was fun to play house for once.
Just go to a place called "Tourist Agency" along the port when you arrive by bus. I thought it was the Tourist Office but no... it's a money-making business so be swift. The place I rented was right on the seafront, at the end of the old town, and perfect in every way. A real holiday, full autonomy. (Note that the town closes on Saturday 'round Noon, til Monday. If you get an apartment, run for your food and provisions before then!)
In the morning, stick your head out the window and ask the nice restaurateur to make you two large capuccinos. He'll put them right on the dining-room table, though the window. The greeting is "Dobr Dan" - Good day! -- and we used it a lot. Italian is widely spoken there, and German too.
It was great. And the weather! Warm and sunny, or even warm when there was a light drizzle. Lovely.

Pension Cirman: In Ljubljana, or rather, nearby
Everything I tried in Ljubljana by calling ahead was full. So I chose a pension, the one with the best rate, in Medno, about 10-15 minutes by bus from the centre of Ljubljana.
The owner was very reserved but nice. She was even nicer when she found out I was Canadian, cuz her son lives in Toronto and she visits him often. :-)
The room was in the attic and small. There was no one else on that floor, so we had the facilities to ourselves. Great! A very clean place too.
Buses to and from town are about every hour, perhaps more frequent in daytime. Euros 75 cents, CDN$1.20 -- how's that for accuracy? haha.
What I really liked was that on the last day, the longer-distance bus we wanted to go to Skofja Loka came from the centre and passed right in front of the Pension Cirman. No wasting time going back and forth.
Medno is in the countryside, very quiet. The pic is our Pension as it was many many years ago. Their business card mentions restaurant but it seems they only rent rooms now.

Hotel Turist. Ljubljana: A very Comfy Three Star Hotel
We stayed in a double room which was recently decorated and VERY clean and comfortable. It was decorated in blue with a Van Gough print on the wall. I remember it so well. It also had Satellite TV in the room,a mini bar, hairdryer and inernet connection if you needed it.
Single room 13.680 SIT - 29.280 SIT,57 € - 122 €
Double room 23.760 SIT - 33.360 SIT,99 € - 139 €
Triple room 28.320 SIT - 36.000 SIT,118 € - 150 €
Business room 30.240 SIT - 37.920 SIT,126 € - 158 €
Child's bed 3.600 SIT, 15 €
We would come back after a busy day of walking around and seeing the sights of Ljubljana, and relax in our wonderful hotel room. It didn't feel like we were staying in a hotel, it felt more like home or a friend's house. We didn't feel the need to go out. It was nice just to chill out at night there.
We had a great view as well.
The only thing I wouldn't recommend is eating at the hotel in the evening. It was pre packed frozen food and Veg. Slovenia has some great cheap restaurants. It's worth venturing out to find one!
Disabled welcome (one disabled room), pets welcome (in the rooms).

Grand Hotel Toplice: Best view on Lake Bled
The Grand Hotel Toplice is one of the largest hotels in Bled. We usually go for small, but we were very pleased with this larger hotel. Our room was spacious and comfortable and it was located on a corner with two windows and a deck overlooking the lake. We had the most stunning views of the lake and the island in the middle. I would definitely stay here again.

Grand Hotel Toplice: On the shores of Lake Bled
This picture shows the backside of Grand Hotel Toplice in Bled. It is the large building right on the lake.
Because we were honeymooners, my husband and I got special treatment at some of the hotels we stayed at in Yugoslavia. We checked into Grand Hotel Toplice and were shown our room. I needed something from the car, so I went downstairs. On the way down, I ran into the desk clerk who was on his way up with a basket of delicious looking fruit and a bottle of champagne. When he saw me, he got very flustered, stammered that "This was supposed to be a surprise" and turned around and went back downstairs.
I felt a little sorry for ruining his surprise, but mostly, I was looking forward to the basket of fruit and the champagne. I went back up to the room and we waited. And waited. And waited.
The desk clerk never came back with the basket or champagne. I guess I totally screwed things up when I ruined his surprise, and we weren't eligible anymore for the honeymoon basket!

Eko kmetija Perk: Suppostedly the highest village in Slovenia!
You can find their tourist farm high above Logarska valley, in Matko's end (Matkov kot), where are the highest laying farms in Slovenia. We are located on 1230 m above the see and they are practically surrounded with beautiful mountains. They have magnificent sight on Kamnik-Savinja Alps and to part of Karavanke. Olseva (1929 m), Raduha (2062 m), Kroficka (2083 m), Ojstrica (2350 m), Skarje (2131 m), Planjava (2394 m) and many others peaks, will attract your attention in clear sunny morning.
Perk is surrounded with unspoiled nature, fresh air and peaceful wide forests. You can decide for active vacation or, on the other hand, chose peaceful holiday, far away from frenzied world and enjoy in bird's warbling, relaxing nature and excellent domestic food. Neighbourhood of the farm offers plenty possibilities for sport, relaxation, fun or even educational excursion. One can variegate his holidays with archery, horse riding, swimming in the pool, kayaking on Savinja river and fishing.
Their roads are actually made for mountain cycling. If you like mountains, you shouldn't miss climbing on one of nearby peaks or, in case you like real challenges, even rock-climbing. For those, more inquisitive, I recommend visiting the Neanderthal man museum (Potocka cave) or old gothic church in Solcava. In case you only want to take rest, you can visit Logarska Valley, Matko's or Roban's end, which are in all times in year full of unforgettable nature beauty. You will find a lot of nice and easy footpaths there.
In winter you will probably want to ski. There are two smaller ski slopes in vicinity. They have also possibility to produce compact snow. In Logarska Valley you have possibilities for cross-country skiing. If you like to try yourself with snow sledge they have perfect possibilities for sleighing on snowed up roads. You can also loan the sledge on the farm.
Great views, homy atmosphere, pleasant owners and near the SLovena Austria boder where you can just walk accross!!!

Mountain Huts of the Slovenian Alps
Mountain huts can be found throughout the mountain ranges of Slovenia. The websight of the Slovene Alpine Club can give you a lot more information on where huts can be found and possible routes. Members of the Slovene club get discounts - discounts which also go to other members of alpine clubs giving reciprocal arrangements to Slovene members abroad. Americans can get some discounts through the American Alpine Club or by joining one of the European alpine clubs - Austrian or German seem to be the easiest for English speakers. Website for Slovene Club is: http://www.pzs.si/ang/index.htm
The Austrian club is: http://www.alpenverein.at/
The German club is:
While other alpine club websites can be found at: http://www.thebmc.co.uk/links_det.asp?link_cat=4
Mountain huts give great views, decent food and drink - it always tastes better up high! They are also super places to meet people and exchange ideas.

Tourist Farm Pri Andrejevih: Family Friendly
Staying at this tourist farm will be one of the more memorable experiences in my life. While the guesthouse is central for going to the coast or to the caves, one could easily spend most of the day just hanging out there. While there is not much to do at the house, the owners and their two adult daughters make the stay so enjoyable. Three nights at the guesthouse, breakfast, dinner and lots and lots of wine came to a little over $110 for two people. Upon arriving I was thinking tourist farm, I can do some farming. But they was no work to be done, just lots of talking, drinking, music (the 2 daughters played Slovenian folk songs all night), eating and playing cards. I learned so much about Slovenia talking with the owners and their daughters.
The guesthouse itself is recently built, reminding me of a house from the Bavarian Alps. Lots of wood. The rooms are new and clean, each room has a bathroom and balcony. There is a central room for watching TV, but we never even went in it. They are planning on building a swimming pool. It was an animal friendly environment as they own a dog and cats. People from every corner of the globe were staying there (about 12 other people) and it was nice to get to talk to them during dinner time.
Aside from the down home friendliness, the food was definitely a unique quality. The owners cooked all day long, making meals for breakfast and dinner. It was so much food and it was all so good. Several courses for dinner. I wish I had two stomachs just to eat it all.

Hotel Paka: Hotel in Velenje
Great accommodation, great quality at an affordable price. The Hotel overlooks a public square with lots of nice cafes and eating out places. The square incidentally has the only surviving statue of Comrade Tito, leader of former Yugoslavia.
The coffee shop has a great collection of snacks and desserts.

10, Posavskega: Private Apartments in Ljubljana
Finding a hotel accommodation in Ljubljana during summer might be tough unless you have booked beforehand. I was lucky to find a cheap, clean and cheerful private apartment, very close to the city centre, at 10, Posavskega, for just Euro 20 a night. Breakfast is not included but there are restaurants and cafes nearby.

Hostel Val: Piran: a hostel
I don't care if Darinka e Rajmond Humar, the owners, call it a hostel - "Val" is definitely a guesthouse... and if they insist it's a hostel, then it's a 5 starts hostel. It's really lovely and well kept: there are rooms with 2, 3 or 4 beds (basically posh dorms). Highly recommended.
Prices vary but are around 18-20 euros depending on the season. It's also possible to have lunch and dinner there, provided you give the owners advance notice
