My wife, 20 month old daughter and I stayed at Mescanka for two nights in March. The staff was extremely friendly. They offered to lug our heavy suitcases up the stairs to our room, provided a lay of the land, and provided great recommendations for things to do in Ljubljana. One member of the staff, Tjasha, even watched my daughter... More

Communications are excellent, they provide a lot of information via email and arranged a transfer via taxi from the airport which was very good. (20E paid directly to driver) Excellent location for the old town, the taxi drops you off at a major square, and then it is a 5 min walk to the apartment, over the river. There are... More

From the moment we booked mescanka the level of helpfulness was brilliant. Anything we wanted to know they provided the information.

What a fantastic property, right in the heart of the city and walking distance to EVERYTHING you'll want as a tourist. Very spacious, great kitchens and bathrooms and reasonably priced. Very helpful staff, willing to always help, speak excellent English and very polite. We would without doubt return here if we visit Ljubljana again.

Mescanka is supremely located by the river near the centre of the old town. It is a very short walk to the best restaurants, the markets, a number of quality bars and pubs and most public transport services. The staff were always very helpful and responsive and seemed to genuinely care that we enjoyed our stay in their beautiful city.... More

We stayed here on our recent trip to ljubljana, had a great room overlooking the river Service is great, friendly staff with good sense of humour. Location is perfect, right in the middle of the old town below the castle. Wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else if we return to ljubljana.

Mescanka is perfectly located in Ljubljana old town. The structure is very cozy and comfortable. My room, with double bed and bathroom, was nicely furnished, warm and very silent. Maybe only a little bit dark, but that was not really an issue. Staff are extremely cordial and helpful. Ideal place to roam around and enjoy Ljubljana.
