You can choose between rooms, studios or fully equipped flats, all with private bathroom. The clean and cosy premises were completely renovated in 2011 to blend a great mix of old refurbished furniture and modern interior design.

You cannot get much more central to Ljubljana than this (though just be aware it is a pedestrian-only zone so staying can involve some significant suitcase dragging across cobbled streeets!). I fell in love with my apartment here as soon as I set eyes on it; it was so quirky yet inviting and an intriguing mix of modern and classic styles. Had everything I needed and I wished I could have stayed longer. Staff were helpful in terms of storing my luggage when I arrived early, offering recommendations and booking me a taxi to the airport, though could have been a little more relaxed and friendly about it! Only real complaint is that reception is only manned on very limited hours and I didn't have anyone to contact outside of these, as I had done staying in other apartments in Slovenia; main issue with this is I had serious concerns about catching my booked taxi due to the Ljubjlana marathon, and on attempting to call the firm myself got someone who barely spoke English!

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Mescanka Rooms and Apartments. I have always stayed in 4* + Hotels before so had some in trepidation of booking an Apartment/Room. However, having read the glowing reviews I booked a room with confidence as Trip Advisor has never let me down before. Had lots of helpful contact with Mescanka prior to arrival. Also continued to check reviews which remained positive. We arrived about 10 p.m on a Friday evening and were immediately impressed by the location on the river amongst the buzzing bars and restaurants. We were met by a very friendly member of staff who checked us in and showed us to our room 'Zofka'. That's when the disappointment hit! When we closed the door behind us it was like we had just been locked in some bizarre Escape Room! A padded door, bright yellow walls, random furniture and nik naks. I kept thinking that any minute the TV would turn on and our 60 minutes would begin! I appreciate it was a room in an old building but for me it was a little too quirky and shabby. The bed was two singles pushed together to make a double, it was quite hard and uncomfortable and the bedding provided consisted of two single sheets and blankets folded at the end of the bed so you make it yourself. I'm sorry but I did at least expect double bedding and something a bit more inviting than a sheet! The wardrobe is the strangest set up I've ever seen as the rungs go from back to front, which in itself is workable but it contained a chest of drawers in side, so unless you are the size of a child it was very difficult to hang much. The safe is big enough to accommodate passports and not much else, so if like us you travel with and ipad we had to carry it around with us all the time. The bathroom was more modern and shower worked well as did the air conditioning. Amenities such as kettle, hairdryer were all provided so no complaints there. We also had no issues with noise despite looking out onto the alleyway. Towels weren't changed during our stay but if you are there long enough you can request this. All in all, we enjoyed our time in Ljubljana and the location of Mescanka cannot be faulted but I now know Apartments/Rooms are not for me and I will be back to the comfort of Hotels from now on.

Highly recommend Mescanka apartments. Fabulous location, in the middle of many shops and restaurants. Well equipped apartment which is a bit quirky but very stylish. Lovely staff who are very helpful and friendly. Would definitely stay there again if lucky enough to travel to Ljubljana again.

We stayed at the Mescanka for one night with our family of 6 (had 3 rooms). The rooms were very spacious and perfect for our family. We met in one of the larger rooms with a kitchen for breakfast. The location was perfect - easy to walk to restaurants and roam around the town. Wish we could have had more time here.

A lovely room overlooking the river in Ljubljana Even though it is above the restaurant it was extremely quiet (with windows closed) Very friendly staff and helpful. Happy to store bags as we walked around. Central location to all main activities. Note - it is in a No Car zone so taxi cannot drop you off in front. Ours dropped us off 5 mins away - easy walk. 15 min walk to train station.
