I recently stayed at this Inn with a large group. We were greeted by Igor Sustar immediately upon arrival, who carried our bags into the main room and offered us homemade honey brandy as well as brochures about Skofja Loka and the surrounding area. He then showed us to our rooms, which were on one of three floors of the... More

Location Very centrally located on the banks of the river near to the bus station. Very easy access to the main and oldest areas of Skofja Loka. It is located only a ten minute walk from the castle (which is worth a look). Accommodation Spotlessly clean and quiet room with TV, good internet access and air conditioning. The room was... More

My wife and daughter and I had a wonderful stay in Skofja Loka at the Hotel garni Paleta. Igor, the owner, was waiting outside for us when we drove up in our rental car. After showing us where to park he gave us a welcoming glass of homemade brandy. Our room was clean and very quiet, right on the river.... More

We stayed in the Hotel Garni for two nights and cannot fault it. Clean and comfortable rooms, wonderful breakfast, great location next to the river and Igor is a fantastic host; we received a very warm welcome and he gave us lots of advice on things to do and see in the area....ten out of ten.

We travelled there at the end of August. A Slovenian friend advised for us Skofja Loka as a very nice place which is not so touristic yet. It is very small but romantic town and mass-tourism didn’t touch yet the area. We stayed there few days and found that it is very easy to managing from Skofja Loka one-day excursions... More

First........IGOR is a "rock star" in our town. Whoever goes to Slovenia stays with Igor......therefore expectations were HIGH.......and we were NOT disappointed at all!!!!!!! Yes, the room is modest......we had a view of the castle and river........free parking a block away.....good wifi......and delicious breakfasts! It is SO obvious that Igor loves what he is doing. At the time we were... More

Very small boutique hotel. Facilities are modest, but very well maintained. You could not find a better host than Igor. He helped with my luggage, offered many tips on where to go and what to see, and went well beyond what an ordinary concierge or host would do. Can't thank him enough. Breakfast was well above what I was expecting,... More

You couldn't ask for a better location. With views across the river over the old city and churchbells as your alarm clock, it really made Skofja Loka shine. The room was clean and functioned well, even for our family of 5. Good, clean bathroom and the windows opened for fresh breezes. Igor is a master within the service industry and... More

Our plans changed because of illness and Igor was very helpful. Very nice!! Skofja loka is a good base for visiting all of Slovenia. We had a car, but there seems to be good bus service. Very good food at The Grainery (SL) -- Austrian and reasonable. We drove to Bohinj through the back roads -- probably would not recommend... More

Our guide book told us that Skofja Loka was worth a visit, so when we got there and decided to stay, we saw the hotel sign and were happy there was room. It was a very pleasant surprise. The room was comfortable, everything worked! The best part was that the owner, Igor, was a gracious host, served a complete breakfast... More
