Too Noisy and Too Hot
The Hotel Orel is right in the centre of Maribor close to Maribor Castle. It is handy for restaurants and bars. However, the downside of this is that the hotel is very noisy. We stayed here for three nights. On the first night I was woken up by noise from outside the hotel continuously. On the second night I was so tired I almost slept through the noise but was woken up once or twice. On the third night I was so tired I managed to just pass out into total oblivion.
The other big downside with this hotel, at least in summer, is that the rooms have no air-conditioning and are stiflingly hot.
Staff at the hotel were reasonably pleasant. Our room was clean. The bed was comfortable. I cannot say the room was comfortable due to the heat.
Breakfast was OK. There was some hot food, breads, a toaster, cheeses, meats, cereal, coffee, tea.
Maribor was a nice place. The hotel was about ten minutes walk from the station and convenient for all Maribor's sights and for places to eat.
Maybe it is quieter if you have a room at the back of the hotel. Personally I would never stay here again, because of the noise.
3 nights here for us, looks like it's been renovated recently, our room was very new. Room clean and comfortable. Buffet breakfast ncluded in the price.
July '07 there is some building work nearby and a little noisy at times but, that will soon be finished I imagine.
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.
