The clean and cosy premises were completely renovated in 2011 to blend a great mix of old refurbished furniture and modern interior design.

Bring earplugs and prepare a good sound machine playlist. It’s important to know that because the rooms sit over a restaurant/bar, the sound sounds are loud late into the night (even with windows closed). Netflix didn’t work, and I tried to solve the issue through chat, but the manager or whomever kept saying non-answers like “yes it works” and “push the button” and then got mad because I was trying to troubleshoot the problem — which by the way never resolved. (This same person was also saying nice things, like “kind regards” so I initially assumed I was dealing with a nice person until I started noticing weird behavior.) My poor teen was really disappointed. Also know that when the sofa bed is open as a second bed, the space becomes very tight. The bathroom is also tiny and the shower gets water everywhere when used. Because of the noise and the ride behavior of the manager, I’d never stay here again.

This is a very cute, comfortable place. The staff is excellent. Very central. BUT… it is on the river and the crowd noise, thumping music go on well past midnight. I wondered why there was a bowl of earplugs in the living room. I quickly found out the first night. So if you’re not out there partying, you might find this noise level a little off putting.

We stayed at Mescanka for 3 nights on our last days in Slovenia which is an amazing and over looked country to visit. The view over the pedestrian walkway along the river is so fun. The location is perfect. 5-10 walk to everything. Our room was delightful with everything you would need to stay multiple days. The most important was the customer service with Julija the manager. She was attentive and was always there for us. We would love to go back sometime to Vid it more if Slovenia using her place as a base. The location can be busy and a bit noisy but the windows block out all of the sound.

I had a pleasant time at Meščanka. The hotel is very close to the 3 bridges and other landmarks in the old town. I had the funniest check in story so far. I couldn’t find the hotel. Google map failed to give me the last step to find the hotel. So I kept searching, walking perpendicularly to the hotel until someone asked me if I were looking for Meščanka. It was Julija, the manager. She recognized me from the id I sent during online check in. Julija also helped me carry my heavy piece of luggage through the stairs. It’s a small hotel. The staff is also very friendly and helpful. My studio had a sunken kitchen. The kitchen was fully operational. Ljubljana is a very charming city. Most travel blogs recommend 2 days to visit. I, however, recommend 4 days to walk around the town, go to an early day trip to Bled and another day trip ti Piran. I do recommend Meščanka for its warmth and cordial atmosphere.

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.

We stayed here for two nights in April 2018. We were really pleased with the location as it's so central to everything. The studio apartment was comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Due to its central location in can be quite noisy at night if you have the windows open as there are many bars and restaurants directly underneath. The reception staff were really friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend staying here.
