Kobanska ulica 10, Maribor, 2351, Slovenia
Loved this place
I would go back to Slovenia just to stay here again and visit with Nina and Andrej. I have never been made to feel more welcome in a place then here and I thought we were special but if you read the reviews on this place, they treat EVERYONE like this.
Unique Quality: Very modern, not used to that for the prices we pay for hotels in Europe. But the owners are the unique quality. They are simply the best. They turned us on to our next night in Slovenia over in Lendava which was one of our best nights.
Across the street, there is a park and their is a trail along the river to walk back into Maribor, about 30 minutes. No traffic and very relaxing along the river.

Travel Tips for Maribor
why to visit Tourist Information Centre
For those independent visitors who'd like to get information on Maribor and its running activities, there's spot to get all what they need: at Tourist information centre in a glassy low block, at Partizanska street (that's next to the large brick built, green roofed Franciscan church, or few steps across the road from Kojak monument).
The whole set of activites can be find on their web site but in general:
go there to book tours or get ideas what to do on your own, get free brochures and maps, buy better maps, souvenirs or just ask about anything what bothers your stay. It's right place to ask!
Tourist Information Centre Note: below TIC there's renewed public toilet judged as as the best one in the country. Well, now you know!
The medieval Castle of Maribor stands on Grajski trg (Castle Square). In the castle was the seat of the Maribor provincial counts from the end of the Middle Ages. It is a home of Museum now. Baroque manor house boasts with the beautiful grand staircases and a decorated walls with rich stuccowork and a painted ceiling.
This beautifully decorated medieval well stands right befind the Old Castle and next to the statue to poet Jurcic. It remind us at the past times when people had to take the water away from their homes. At the same time, while waiting for the water, it was a kind of meeting point, place to exchange the news or just to talk to each other, something we miss in this days.
Fantastic Maori Chor
Well, it was very pleasant surprise hearing the fantastic group of young people from New Zeland singing Maori songs on the Main Square of Maribor. I didn't catch the name of the chor but they were just fantastic performing folk songs and dances from their people. Great experience!
want something Balkanese to warm up your stomach?
Given the fact that Slovenia lays in the beginning of Balkans and that it have large numbers of Serbians, Bosniaks, Macedonians and Kosova people living in Maribor it's not surprising that you'll be able to find some of the restaurants/bars serving delicious Balkanese foods in the middle of city. One of the most popular is called Stari Grill at Glavni trg, right in the old town (next to Casino). It's often full, it has good atmosphere and you'll be able to eat probably the best kajmak (cheese) with lepinja (bread) in town there. If you like meat, they have other traditional stuff there (most famous pleskavica and cevapcici). lepinje (bread) with kajmak (white soft cheese, quite salty one) and lots of fresh onions.
