“Stay overnight as you where at home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2012

Its quite seldom you get this kind of hospitality and frendliness as we got in Ljubljana apartment hotel Vila Minka. We where four business partners and stayed at the end of January five nights in this nice hotel. Very quiet and nice atmosphere with exellent service.
This is not definetly a hotel for people who are looking for huge hotel colosseums with international habits and noice! The hotel is situated few kilometers out from the city center and is not a problem to take just a walk in to the city. For a business trip also the free parking in front of the hotel is superior. Short and simply way to the airport is also something to recommend. If the hotel had a small restaurant with good food this would be superior place to stay, without still very good!

Room Tip: Room above the reseption is good

We stayed with our two children at the Vila Minka last summer. The place was quite spacious and the people very helpful. They were very nice to us including the children... helping us with milk, etc.

We were leaving very pleased until the time for checkout. They said they would accept only cash at the last minute. We didn't have enough cash and couldn't even take that much out from an ATM. The owner reluctantly accepted traveller's checks after her daughter confirmed that she has used it everywhere.

On reaching home, I got an email that she is unable to en-cash the traveller's checks. I asked to mail me the traveller's checks and asked my bank to do a wire transfer. My good faith was misplaced as the owner not only received my transfer but also en-cashed the traveller's checks.

They wired the money back but only after threats to report this to the tourism authority... but EUR 100 short...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2011

I visited Ljubljana this summer with my wife and two kids and I returned with nice memories about the city. We wanted to book another hotel (Birokrat Aparthotel) but it was full. At the reception desk they were very helpful but unfortunately because it was weekend, the only available rooms were at a 5 stars hotel so … they recommended Vila Minka.
Plus
The service, the general attitude, very helpful, everything is done with a smile;
The reception desk fool of maps and travel magazines of Slovenia and Ljubljana, all free;
The architecture of the building, the comfort, the interesting atrium;
Large suite, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room;
Very quiet, surrounded by gardens and other villas.
Average
Location, not close to the center but Ljubljana is very small so you can easily manage;
The interior of the rooms, the white furniture, and the general feeling that it tries to be luxurious but it only manages to look a bit old.
No breakfast included but for an extra 28 euros (7 euro/person) we ordered a nice continental breakfast.
Minus
It’s overpriced. In no conditions the price of 150 euros/night with no breakfast is not OK. The correct price for the suite should be of maximum 100 euros.
