Perfect location in Old Town Ljubljana! I had a very spacious room, (Lily) with a great view of the river and within short walking distance of restaurants, shopping, bars and close to castle. Well insulated from street noise, even though it is right above several restaurants. Great shower and bathroom, nice kitchenette and comfy couch. Bed was a bit hard... More

The location is excellent right along the river in the center of everything. The room was nice and modern. They give you a nice map with restaurants, attractions and bars. One of the best TV channel selections in any hotel I have stayed. You have to find your own parking but they will assist you in finding the cheapest and... More

A great choice for anyone visiting the city. The location is perfect, with all of the cities main sights within easy walking distance. The staff were very helpful both before & during our stay with plenty of good suggestions on bars, restaurants to try. They also helped us with onwards travel arrangements.

We visited Ljubljana as a surprise for my boyfriends 30th birthday and chose to stay at Mescanka. From the time of booking right through to the day we arrived the staff were nothing but helpful and informative. They arranged for champagne and chocolates in our room as an extra to make our stay special. The girls were great at helping... More

We were excited to stay at this property due to the glowing reviews, but it just didn't live up to the hype. Where it wins is on location and price. The property is centrally located on the main street within walking distance of Ljubljana's attractions and many options for dining or drinking. The apartments provide a good deal of space... More

If you are reading all the reviews of places to stay in Ljubljana, then stop and just book Mescanka. It is faultless and one of the 2 properties I stayed in on this trip which I would both re-visit and recommend to friends. The location is perfect, the views gorgeous, the rooms delightful and the staff of both the hotel... More

We just checked out earlier today and I can't say enough about the quality of service and the great location. We dealt with a variety of front desk people and they were all very helpful and proficient with excellent English. The location is perfect, about 100 meters from the main square and right in the midst of a number of... More

Our apartment was well appointed, spotless and with the windows open, we could hear the riot of Ljubljiana church bells, musicians on barges and on the square, revelers and just enjoy the passing parade on the river front. (So quiet with the windows closed tho!). We found the stairs easy to manage, even with our excess luggage! The staff are... More

Right in the middle of pedestrian Ljubljana, Mescanka Apartments was a wonderful choice for us. Just around the corner from numerous bars, restaurants and cafes, we could saunter to any eating /drinking destination in a matter of minutes. We had a studio apartment on the second floor with dormer windows - the decor was lovely and the apartment had everything... More
