Great Location! Your right in the heart of the city where all the action is, however this comes with some concessions. First, there is no lobby/front desk. This is not a big deal, but odd for a 4 star hotel. This is not a hotel per say, it is a converted older apartment. The front of the building is from the 1800s and yet this building is behind that and built upon the scaling walls of the castle that towers above it. I would date the structure from the 1400 – 1600s. It literally has a cave feeling about walking up the stairs. Ground water is seeping through the mountainside walls. I found it very interesting to stay in such an antiquated building. Ok, to get back on track. No lobby….did not turn out to be an issue as they provide you with a contact number, so I guess if you lost your key or some other issue you better have that phone number handy! Second, the payment options. So, I booked this through Kayak.com and got a good rate, I then received an e-mail for the automated payment through Paypal.com. I guess if you don’t have Paypal, then you’re out of luck. Later I received an automated email to confirm check-in and with a PIN code to enter the property for the first time. Odd… first time for me at least. So, I arrive at the hotel/rooms and it feels like I’m entering a hidden CIA safe house or something. You enter into a vaulted entry (see photo) and into the back older property with another PIN code entry (see photo), up a few flights of stairs hugging the cliff walls of the mountain and into a warmly decorated, yet small room. It had a quaint view of some other apartments with hanging flowers from the window ceils. If you have been to Verona, Italy then it would remind you of the courtyard of Romeo and Juliet. The room probably dates to the same period of when Romeo and Juliet was written. So, kind of like staying in Juliet’s room, if you can imagine that? As this is probably the first real review of this hotel I have posted ample pictures.
Bottom line…. If you’re staying here, it is because of Location, Location, and Location. This is prime real estate for downtown. However, you will have to forego room service, bar, lobby, all that jazz. I enjoyed my two night stay and would stay here again.
Oh, two more things… They do offer some concierge services upon request. I was actually greeted upon my arrival and offered if I was interested in a boat tour, concerts, etc.
Walking distance parking is 25 Euro per day, so factor that if you drive.

Hi Tod, it was a pleasure to have you as a guest. As you wrote, our accommodation is not an hotel, but a Bed and Breakfast. We tried to put into our accommodations what we would like to have when visiting: being at the heart of the town, having a comfortable and good place to rest. When a guest provide us so pleasant feedback, we feel that we are reaching our target.
Hope to see you again.

We booked last minute and they called us on the phone and they waited in the room.
The room are new and very nice staff.
Great breakfast where you can eat as much as you want, with sweet and savory items dishes prepared by a chef.

Very pleasant stay. The room was extremely comfortable and decorated with taste.

Easy access to the structure and all formalities done in a flexible way and without any time waste. An excellent alternative to the hotel for business travelers, because of its central position and all modern comforts. Will definitely come back!

Hello Marek, our approach is to give to our guests in our rooms the same optionals and the same features that they can find in hotel: this is also aknowledged by the Slovenian Ministry of Tourism that rewarded Emona as a 4 star accommodations. Wish to see you very soon again in Emona.

2 days befor arrival get an email requesting you pay before arrival. The online system doesn't work correctly, won't accept my paypal account and no other way to pay. Scared for two days that they would cancel my room. Arrive in a chaotic courtyard with no one to meet you. Schlep your luggage alone up 3 flights of stairs. No one to discuss the problem with the payment. Deposit luggage and go out for dinner. Receive a frantic text to meet someone at the hotel to properly check in. Abandon dinner and return to the scary courtyard at night. Whose courtyard is this anyway, full of laundry and dead plants....climb stairs again to find they cannot accept payment except through the online service which still won't accept my paypal and no other way to pay. Go out again and find an ATM to pay in cash. Nice room and good location, but everything else made this a miserable stay. Booking.com should explain all these steps in the ad. It is WORK to stay here.

Hello mrs Ellenem, as explained in the Booking.com page, our accommodation is at the second floor of an historic house and it is fully automated: works in the common areas works were communicated by Booking.com and by the email you mentioned.
The payment system is PayPal: the issues you got were not dependent on us. Furthermore, as soon as you sent us an email highlighting the issue we already communicated you the possibility to pay directly to our assistant at your arrival. Before your arrival our assistant tried to get in touch with you at least twice by phone, and then by text message to schedule to meet each other at 1 pm the day of your arrival. On the day of your arrival our assistant tried to reach you by phone call, by text message and by mail. Then, after getting no reply, our young assistant waited for your friend and you in front of Emona for a while. She also the one who brought up the luggage upstairs and at 7:00 PM, after exchanging email with you, she came to collect the money since the paypal link was not working properly.
We are really sorry about all the issues you faced but no one is really depending strictly on us.
