Room is comfortable, nice furniture, bathroom has a tub. Well, however there were ants around mini-bar/TV desk - not many, in fact when I trown away one, another one appeared, I never saw more than one at a time - in the end, I counted them 8 in first day! Balcony is "shared" with people next door - bordered with few shacks - I didn't like that very much. I like privacy when I wander around in my underpants. Free wi-fi - my experience was like this - there are 3 access points to connect to. Two are called by hotel, the third one is called guest. I couldn't connect to first two, I had connecting and disconnecting IP message in loop. The guest one has weak signal and it works only at certain parts of the room - in general, not at the desks where you could put laptop. You have to confirm connection and it last until you disconnect, then you have to repeat the process. At the end of day, the ones with stronger signal started to work suddenly, I could connect to them -and they worked fine the rest of the time.
The air-refresher (or whatever it's called in english) controlled by switch in bathroom when it was turned on, emitted smelly odour, so it was better turned off. When I took a bath in tub (not shower - a bath), the whole floor in the bathroom was wet - thus the smell. So my guess is that since I booked the room as a part of discount on booking.com, that they have a few rooms that stay unvisited and hotel lowers their price to sold them. The other side of coin are ants and clogged pipes - since no one was obviously in the room for a quite some time. Showering went fine ie. the floor didn't get inundated by sheer showering.
About pricing -
When you book a room, they charge immediately the whole amount from the credit card, probably so people won't run away :D I won't be coming back here. I don't know how could they have 4 stars and won gold award for 2012 - based on what? At the last day you get questionnaire laying on the bed, about your stay.
Hidden charge (as with all hotels in Slovenia) are 3 euro - to be exact, touris tax is €2.02 and insurance is €0.98.
It wouldn't be fair to give lower rating than 3 - the breakfast was the best I ever had in any hotel until now. In general, rooms are Ok, they are clean, and they are cleaned ok (I don't count harmless insects in this :D )
And, oh, the old geezers that praise this hotel - it is probably because there is a porn channel (channel 13 as I remember, "XXL"). :D
