“Hostel rather than hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

First let me say that the establishment is spotlessly clean and superbly situated.

Do not choose this hotel for a good experience. The hotel is basic in the extreme and very noisy at night thanks to the congregation of (very happy) young people in the courtyard. The pillows were so awful that we had to ask for replacements, and we did not appreciate 2 hand towels and one bath towel between two. Breakfast was adequate but no more.

I am probably too old to appreciate this hotel (I am 52) so younger people may think this review is rubbish, however, I believe there may be better value for money in Ljubljana.

Dear Sir,

at first we apologize for noise at night which was caused by our neighbors.

We are glad that you enjoyed hotel location and that hotel room was clean.

We ask every guest to contact hotel reception desk in case more towels are needed.

I've stayed here quite a few times, first came based on Rick Steve's recommendation. It is quite basic, yet provides every convenience (except air con). Given it's very cheap, you get a good value, and the location is superb, can't be more central.
Some reviewers complain about walk to parking (a few blocks). Well, the entire Old Town of Ljubljana is car-free, so staying in any hotel here means a walk to your car. The hotel provides discounted parking spots in the garage (you pay 7 euro vs. 38) - what a deal!
Emonec offers many conveniences: free internet, free continental breakfast, they will call an airport shuttle for you, store your bags, let you into your room early, lend you a hair dryer... They are a basic hotel (and charge you accordingly) - so come with the right expectations and enjoy Ljubljana, the hidden gem of Europe!

Room Tip: They offer slightly smaller rooms at a discount - very good value for 2 people or 1 person

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
