Meščanka rooms are not really apartments (no kitchen) but more like hotel rooms. Location is very central, in a tiny side-street of the riverside street with a lot of cafes and restaurants around - ideal location for a city trip. Staff is friendly and helpful. Very recommended.

Stayed at Mescanka for 3 nights in July 2014. What a lovely place with friendly and helpful service. With four adults, Mescanka set up two extra beds for our stay. Although a slight extra cost, it worked out very well. We enjoyed some of the friendliest service during our travels with the ladies at Mescanka. They answered all of our... More

Staying in Mescanka was a great decision that I would most certainly repeat as the nicely located hotel offered brilliant rooms, both in size, function and appearance with an extremely hospitable set of staff at hand. There was nothing I could fault as being set on the river in view of Ljubljana Castle the hotel made everything so much more... More

Perfectly located within a few meters of the restaurants and cafes in this old city which brings a awesome vibe. Staff very very friendly, rooms very modern, spacious and clean. Bathroom great with a decent shower!

Echo what others say, few if any complaints. The top floor studio was modern and unexpectedly impeccable, the beds great, the location fantastic. Exceedingly comfortable, which is tough to find on long trips through Europe - perhaps our best apartment on our latest 3 week tour. Completely lived up to what they post on their website.

Excellent all round - great location, a friendly and helpful welcome from Petra and Ana (in person and by email beforehand), a really nice room for the price, and top-grade glazing to ensure peace and quiet despite the central location.

A perfect location,below the castle in the heart of the old city, only minutes from a huge selection of good restaurants and bars, right on the river. 10 minutes walk from the train station/bus terminal and 5 from the taxi drop-off point. Surprisingly quiet at night and very peaceful during the day, due to the prohibition on cars in this... More

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
