Travelers' Choice
The Barbo Palace Apartments reside in the Barbo Palace, built in 1755 for Count Jost Vajkard von Barbo. Its unique Baroque façade and interior courtyard, along with the only double staircase in Ljubljana, make it one of the most intriguing historical buildings in Ljubljana. Its history is just as colorful, having passed ownership through many of Ljubljana’s prominent families. Its walls have many a story to tell. The current owner recently decided to convert this historic palace into a boutique hotel, thus making its splendid views available to all its guests. Regardless of whether you choose The Barbo Palace as a leisurely family retreat, business trip, a honeymoon (trip) to Ljubljana or a dynamic departure point for voyages with your friends, we will gladly arrange a most enjoyable stay for you. Does this sound like a perfect location to start you trip to Ljubljana?

What a lovely surprise the Barbo Palace and Apartments was! We loved every minute of our stay, from the warm welcome at reception, to the grandiose courtyard leading up the historic double stairway to our enormous one bedroom apartment. Everything was perfect. The hotel staff especially Nina and Gregor were so helpful that we felt like old friends by time we left Ljublijana. We are already looking forward to a return visit. The Barbo Palace is a former private palace converted into spacious apartments and rooms. It will transport you back in time. Highly recommended.

Barbo Palace is clean, comfortable, spacious, with great and spacious bathrooms. The location could not be better. Step out the door and there is a wine bar and little market to the right, close to the market and the bridges. Sure, breakfast does not come with the apartment but I just went to the little grocery store for coffee and then the market for bread and cheese. So delicious and fun. The front door of the Baarbo Palace is sos much fun also. I loved staying there and would again if I should return to Ljubljana.

Perfect location in a grand room. It was easy to walk everywhere and a 15 min walk from the train station. The bed was comfortable and it was quiet at night. The room was very clean and the bathroom big. The floor creaked but that was part of the room’s character. Reception was friendly and helpful - do be sure to let them know your expected arrival time. Although the reception area was not always staffed, they made it easy to contact them if needed. Housekeeping was kind and friendly.

Just arrived home from wonderful Ljubljana 🇸🇮♥️. Barbo Palace is perfectly located within walking distance to lots of attractions, restaurants & bars. The apartment itself (305, Castle View😍) is large, 2 bedrooms, kitchen/diner, lounge and has everything you need for a comfortable stay, highly recommend. Nina in reception was wonderful, very knowledgeable, helpful & friendly. Tip, if booking taxis ask Nina to reserve for you. We did book a few ourselves and found the price was double that of the taxis Nina booked for us. Barbo Palace, Ljubljana & Lake Bled insured we had the best Christmas trip, Hvala Nina and the staff at Barbo.

Lets start with that, it is not a hotel, so if you need to be pampered by staff 24 hours a day, it is not for you the place is a heritage building, that was an actual palace, in a great location, walking distance to everything, extremely clean no housekeeping due to COVID ), our apartment had a living room/ kitchen, and separate bedroom, with a flat TV in each room, the kitchenet was equipped with anything that you need for short stay, and the room had excellent WIFI. the windows are facing the courtyard, so it is very quite, it is a very big size for the price, and have everything that you need for short location the reception is not maned 24 hours a dat as it is not hotel, but Natasha ( excellent host ) will give you her WhatsApp number and she will be available day and night. I will definitely recommend it one thing more, the property is in a pedestrian area, so, airport transfer can not take you to the door, but to the square nearby, and is about 15-20 minutes walk to the bus and train station

We loved our stay at Barbo Palace. The appartment was nicely decorated, clean and the locaties was wonderful. The host Natasa was very nice and helpfull. We stayed longer because we liked it so much at Barbo. The appartments are very central, but because of the good windows you do not hear a sound. I highly recomment Barbo Palace.
