“Very nice B&B but not clean”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed in the red room for one night last summer. The owner spoke good English and gave us a nice welcome. The room itself was small but very nice. However, when we turned the bedsheets we happened to find blood everywhere - on the bedsheets and on the pillow cases.. Needless to say it wasn't ours as we had just arrived. We also found long black hair in the bathroom which obviously also hadn't been cleaned. We tried to tell the owner but did not find her all day. We stayed for the night but obviously the blood overshadowed our stay at this B&B - pretty disgusting actually! We left a note for the owner telling her that we were very disappointed but never heard from her. It was maybe just us having very, very bad luck as all the other reviews are positive but I would not recommend staying there after this bad experience.

In November 2012, I stayed at Petra Varl for six nights. It's a great value and centrally located as it is right across from the main indoor/outdoor market and near the tourist information center in additon to many of the sites, e.g., tripe bridge, dragon bridge, etc.. Since Ljbuljana is a relatively compact city, I was able to walk to all destinations from there, in particular the train and bus stations. Petra and the rest of her family are extremely accomodating. However, it is not your typical bed and breakfast, as Petra supplies the food and you make the breakfast yourself. If you are not familar with a coffee press, you will become familar. I'd definitely stay there again if I was going to Ljublana.

Room Tip: There is only one room.

All I can say about this B&B is that it's awesome, As we arrived we found a very helpful lady, Ana, she helped us getting our baggage to the rooms and was very informative. This B&B is situated in a very nice place surrounded by restaurants and a nice open market. It is also very well kept and maintained, would suggest it to stay.Vince & Miriam Malta.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Blue Room.

We stayed at Petra Varl for 3 days in June. Everything about our stay was absolutely perfect! :)
Petra was extremely nice and accommodating, she gave us great tips about what to do in Ljubljana and the surrounding area. The B&B is also located right in central Ljubljana, just a minutes walk from all major attractions (Dragon Bridge, The castle etc.)
The rooms themselves are also very nice. There are 3 rooms, the yellow room, the red room, and the blue room. We stayed in the yellow room, and it was great! The room has a nice view, and the bathroom is very updated and has all the basic amenities. The room is pretty much average size, and the bed is comfy. Petra also brought these delicious little pastries to our room everyday, and she left us a really sweet present in the day we left! Overall, the B&B is superb and Petra is really sweet! I'll definitely come back here next time I visit Slovenia!! :D

Room Tip: If view really matters to you, you should try to get the yellow or blue room. They have the nicest v...

This B&B was so great, just in the heart of Ljubljana right in front of the lovely market. We stayed for 2 nights in the yellow room in May, and after touring Slovenia we came back for our last night. Since this was a last minute request, they graciously put us in their emergency room, which is sort of part of the owner’s apartment. They also offered us some wonderful homemade cake.
The yellow room was lovely with a good size bathroom and a mini kitchenette with basic breakfast supplies. However we opted instead for the bakery right next door. The Wi-Fi worked flawlessly in both rooms. Definitively a great place to recommend at a very affordable cost. We liked it a lot and loved the city.

B&B Petra Varl is ideally situated in the historic centre of Ljubljana. Our room was clean and the owner was very hospitable and helpful. The B&B is located at the foot of Castle Hill and immediately across the street from the open market in Vodnikov Trg. Dragon Bridge and Triple Bridge are within easy walking distance as are many restaurants, historic sites and local shops. A great location in a wonderful city.

We arrived yesterday, checked in easily with a gracious welcome and just spent our first night in this great room. It is on the 3rd floor, no elevator, which means a bit of stair climbing. We're in the yellow room, nice size, all amenities (except shampoo) and the wireless has been flawless. The location is so convenient to the market and lots of restaurants, shops, TI and tours! Clearly this owner knows the secrets to operating and maintaining quality guest rooms. Breakfast supplies are bare minimum (coffee, milk, white packaged bread/butter/jam,juice - no cereal) but we're heading out to the streets which overflow with tempting snacks.

Room Tip: Both red and yellow rooms on 3rd floor are nice, facing opposite directions. We received horrible s...
