This is a truly vile hotel. An ugly old Stalinist era establishment in need of refurb. We were first shown to a foul smelling bedroom which we refused to accept. Despite this being supposedly a superior room. They gave us another one but only after they had the cheek to tell us they already knew from the maid that the previous occupants had left it in a disgusting smelly state. Everything about this place is depressing. The towels are old and the size of a postage stamp and in the sauna they charge you 4 Euros for a towel. Avoid at all costs.
Food and wellness are great, the environment is wonderful! Cableway is just a couple of metres away, I highly recommend a ride with it. City centre is easily accessible by public transportation. Really enjoyed our stay, definitely would return!
Habakuk was a prophet and what prophets have to say is sometimes difficult to understand. The impression of this hotel is cryptical in a similar way. In the “Yugoslav” times, hotels where built with the purpose to show the best of architecture and to offer all the splendour to the privileged and the rich to recover glamour and/or foreign currency. The Habakuk was also built in this sense. The long winding underground way from the Parking to the reception is a result of this wish to fit grandiosity into beton, not a precursor of the “time tunnel” concept separating the cold outside from a sunny inner island, which you do not find at the end of the tunnel. As Slovenia is on the more prosperous side of the former Yugoslavia, the hotel has benefitted from repairs and renovation, so that there is nothing to complain on this side. But the architectural charme is still more visible to the fans of 1970s Third-Way architecture than to the post-modernists of today. The grandiosity of those times is most visible in the thermals baths that you can use as a guest of the hotel. This is a pure pleasure - specifically at the end of a cold winter day. But you should not expect today’s high tech arrangements. The rooms are modernised and there is nothing to say, except that they have the size of the time - means that either you pay for the presidential suite or you are in working class dimensions, vulgo “little people”. These principles have also inspired the service level. Administrative procedures or restaurant organisation still follow the well-founded processes of the time of construction. Do not expect a cosy place for a romantic breakfast, but it works well if you have to place your troops that have to catch their five busses in time. So in the end this might be the place where you can meet the dignitaries of the state as well as regular tourists from the local union vacation activity, everyone enjoying a “one size fits all” offer that is a big difference from the individualism of capitalistic countries. Our experience ended with a somewhat unpleasant note as the price invoiced was then not by room as announced - which would have been reasonable - but by person, which made it quite expensive for the counterpart. Better make sure in advance that your plan and the hotels intentions tie - that was the base of the business fifty years ago and has remained a tradition. Not sure that this was a differentiation from locals to Westeners, but another memory from the policies in place 50 years ago.…
20 years ago it was a beautiful hotel. The nature is enchanting , ideal for hiking. The hotel unfortunately stayed in 90' . It needs an overhaul and quality staf. The food before was one of my favorite features ... now , not so much. All in all - after renovation a would like to go there again.
Firstly bad points: Central air condition , min +22, well when out side 33 one wants cooler room. For no reason my room at night was 24.5 and it was too hot for me. Buffet food is not good, my advise do not buy full board, eat a la cart The hotel is very big and they only have one check in / out person, queued to get simple information 30 min, the lobby was so hot that everyone was sweating Wi-fi is not the best , sometime could not connect in a room, I would say 40 % of the time I will not stay again, as for business traveller it is hard work Good points : Location is very beautiful, from the train station a taxi tide 30 min approx depends on the traffic, but it is easy to get a taxi My room was renovated , choose superior room and they are good
