“Missed opportunity”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

Stayed here for couple of nights with family. Absolutely the best part here is the location, could not be better. The triple room was also big enough. But this hotel seriously lacks any character, it's very basic. It's a common problem in balkan hotels, the location is good, the building looks nice but the room is filled with cheapest ever bland looking furniture with no interior design. Bathroom was good though. Wifi reception good also. No fridge/minibar in room.

Breakfast was ok, cold buffet style. But again, the interior wasn't that nice, it was like eating in hospital room.

It was quite pricey for what you get. Basically you are paying for the location.

Ljubljana and Slovenia in general is an amazing place. The hotel Emonec although very basic, was clean and tidy and the food was lovely.
The location of this hotel is great, it is right in the centre of the old town and perfect for getting around all the sights in the centre. It is only 5-10 minutes walk from the bus station which has really good routes to all the surrounding areas. L

Basic accommodations in an excellent location in the old city center. Good breakfast service. Laundry on premises. Helpful staff. Rooms near dreary. Trying to be helpful. More words not needed. Two-hundred yet?

We came here based on the recommendation from the Rick Steve’s book. It was the worst place we stayed at in 15 nights in Croatia/Slovenia. I would highly advise you to stay elsewhere. Eurobasketball tournament was on when we were there so they jacked the prices up from 77E to 95E. I would equate this hotel to a Motel 6 level in the US

Pros:
Location only (but the BW is one block away & would be a far better choice)

Cons:
Everything!
No elevator

I had a confirmed reservation for a first floor room since they didn’t have an elevator but they gave us a second story room anyway

Breakfast had a sign “absolutely forbidden to remove anything from this room” (am I staying in a hostel here?)

No AC

No box spring – mattress was on a wood frame which would not have been bad except the mattress was so poor we could feel the wood frame the whole night

Shower got the whole bathroom floor wet

Surly unhelpful receptionists

Receptionist tried overcharging us for the room & wanted us to pay for parking. When I told her I had the written email with me as to my price & that parking was free she backed down & gave us the correct price.

Room was on roof so if the window was left open anyone could gain access to the room

Parking is 3 long blocks away & up many stairs in a parking garage. Lugging suitcases this distance was not easy!

No hair dryers.

Hotel difficult to find as it’s in an alley


Bottom line: go elsewhere! The BW looked much better.

Dear Madam,

our hotel have only ground and first floor. We don't have second floor.

To all our guests who made reservation in advance and request reservation for parking space, we send the instructions by e-mail. On the instructions are written where the parking house is and how far is from our hotel to the parking house.
In case guests not agree with our offer for parking space they can cancel the reservation before arrival.

Hotel is located in pedestrian zone and it is very easy to find.

We don't have rooms on the roof.

we enjoyed our recent stay at the Hotel Emonec. It is an ideal location to simply walk into the old town and enjoy the vast variety of restaurants just a stones throw away (like Restaurant Most).
we arrived by train so it was very easy to walk down to the hotel. A car or disabled access would be tricky so do your reseacrh before you book.
we had room #215 which was a large room, very quiet and with a nice outlook.
Breakfast is simple but sufficient for a days sightseeing.
Staff are friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean and well serviced.
overall a very pleasant stay and I woudl recommend it

Room Tip: we enjoyed the second floor with an outlook - the rooms are very quiet

We stayed at the Hotel Emonec for one night in September. The hotel needs some updating but I can say it is in a great section of the city. It is a few steps from the main square, just a very short walk to the Three Bridges and the open market just on the other side of the river. The staff was very helpful to me, considering I had to go to a doctor while I was there. The one downfall of this hotel, is that in the evening, it tends to get noisey. Considering there is no A/C in this hotel, if you have a warm evening, it may get noisey after hours. When I book a hotel anywhere, I do not consider room size, but I consider how clean the hotel is, as well as the service from the staff. Both were good, and if you are staying in this lovely city, you may want to consider the Hotel Emonec.

Room Tip: If there are rooms facing the rear of the hotel, you may want to consider them due to the potential...

Stayed there 2 nights. Large but empty bathroom. 2000's TV with huge cathodic tube, just above the closet. No a/c or heat. Excellent location. Reception always busy. Poor breakfast. Complicated issues with parking (far, need to stamp parking tickets every day).
