I stayed in this hotel for one night.
Entering the hotel trough the restaurant/bar is the way to get in to this 'hotel' which in my opinion looks more like a big 'pension'. The reception can be found behind the bar. You get the point, this is not a business hotel, but more a very big family house with 20+ rooms full of wooden handycrafts.
The staff is friendly, speaks English well and is able to serve you to your convenience.
Your room can be found on the 1st or 2nd floor. The only way up is by taking the stairs (there is no lift/elevator).
The door opens with a normal key and behind this door you will find a room that has an 80's design. The beds are well used and should be replaced. The mattresses hardly gave me any suspension. The linen on the bed was worn and had some holes in it. The bathroom was tiny and old but everything worked out well and was clean. The room was clean and a fridge was present (no minibar).
There was hardly any isolation in the room. A dog from a farm nearby barked the whole night but closing the window did not silence the noise.
All the rooms do not have airconditioning nor do they have (WiFi) internet.
A small TV gives access to 8 channels, mostly local broadcast.
Normally breakfast starts at 7 am but becouse of my early flight the staff made an early breakfast possible (that was great). Breakfast it self was simple but more than enough for a quick sandwich.
The location of the hotel is probably the best part of this reference. It's only a minute drive from Ljubljana airport. The staff use their van as a shuttle bus on your request and it's free!!! It's also near a little ski-area.
The hotel is located in a very small village. So it should be safe for children to play outside.
The hotel is really nothing special. I would say a 2 star hotel. But this family-hotel has it's charme. And with all the wood in and outside this hotel it feels like an Austrian kind of style. Too bad the rooms and the beds are old. They really need to update this a.s.a.p.
I would recommend this hotel for young couples who don't ask that much or business people who are looking for a hotel nearby LJU airport.
