“could be better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2012

hotel is 5 star and it seems to have more motivated service lately. The rooms, lobby and common areas are impressive, but hotel lack the standard "5 stars" and breakfast was below my expectation.

On our way to Italy, we were running late and decided to stop somewhere and complete our trip the next day. We stayed at Hotel Habakuk in Mirabor, Slovenia, a ski resort and hidden gem. The hotel is lovely, the service is impeccible, and the food was delicious. Our room was a very large king room, with all the luxuries of a 5 star hotel, but with European elegance. We could have easily stayed 2 or 3 nights, just to enjoy the hotel and surroundings.

This was our third visit and we were suprised by renovated rooms that looks really great. Three days in wellness centre combinated with climbing on Pohorje mountain refreshes us completely. Fantastic stay.

Our third visit here and still impressed! Especially now with renovations of some rooms which are now rated as 5 or 4 star rooms ( renovated rooms are rated 5 star ). These rooms are really nice, big and modern - contemporary - looking! We were on 3rd floor and had a nice view from the balcony of surrounding hills and outskirts of Maribor city. Bed and bed linen were wonderful, we had a wonderful sleep. Room service was great, room was serviced by the time we came back from breakfast. Buffet breakfast was also great, good selection and good quality with great service. Dinners, which were included in our rate, were not as good. If there are 10 people or less at the hotel, you can choose meal from A-la-carte menu. If enough guests, it would be a buffet style. When we had A-la-carte, the food was nice, fresh and hot, but it was different story with buffets. If you didn't come at 7pm, when the dinner starts, hot food would be only warm or sometimes even cold already. We thought A-la-carte food was better quality then buffet style food. We expected better quality of food for a 5 star hotel, especially when we had buffet dinner. Buffet dinner costs 19 Euros per person if it's not included in your room rate. Needs improvement! Pool looked nice from the distance, we didn't use it so we can't judge. We heard from other guests that massage and fitness center was really nice and that they enjoyed it. Position of the hotel is excellent, at the bottom of Pohorje hill and next to the forest so you can enjoy lovely walks around the area. There are few restaurants close by and it's worth to mention La Cantina Pizzerija only a minute walk from the hotel. It's a lovely restaurant, known by wood fired pizzas of all sorts (very yummy), pasta dishes, cold meat platters and so on. Very tasty food and inexpensive, very good value for money. Parking is complimentary ( in the garage ) for hotel guests and concierge is always ready to assist and help. Staff in general is very friendly, helpful and willing to accommodate your expectations.

Ten years ago this was a nice big new hotel with great spa, pools, saunas, rooms, and restaurants.

Now it is just awful. Nothing was renovated. Moreover, it is dirty. In the pool and around the pools you can see alges and dirt everywhere. We told that to the management and they said they were saving money.
Food outside at the grill was discusting. The students working there were nice. We ordered calamari and we got them uncooked on the table. When we showed it to a cook he appologized and said that he apologizes cause the manager got some disgusting fake calamari ehich cannot be cooked and nobody wants to eat them. He offered to make a hamburger for us for free. This is a five star hotel?

Place at the foot of the Pohorje mountain (Golden fox ski race) and 5 min from the center of Maribor, it is one of the most luxurious hotels in Slovenia. Pool, massage, sport center, room service, all you can expect from a 5 star hotel is provided. However, just a glimpse at the reception hall is disappointing: dark, old fashioned (not in a nice way). Plus, from outside, this looks like a communistic ugly grey concrete cube. Finally, the doormen are less than average for politeness, service and efficiency. You'll pay a lot for a kind of bitter taste.

It was only during a third visit to Maribor I discovered the existence of Habakuk. A fantastic extra to beautiful Maribor and near surroundings. The swimming pool has to be seen - and used - to be believed. The cost of entry for non residents is € 17 for 4 hours. If you so wish it includes sauna use. Kind Mr Saso Brecelj in reception advised the hotel welcomes non guests at the rate mentioned. A professional approach, confirmed by the friendly and forthcoming attitude of other staff members I had the pleasure of meeting.
