Reviewed May 26, 2012

The staff was extremely friendly, helpful and spoke very good English. The place was very close to the conference I attended so it was perfect for me. Getting to the city centre takes about 10 minutes. The room were small but sufficient for 2 persons. There's a kitchenette next to the reception so you can make your own coffee/tea or a small meal. I was also surprised to find a computer in my room.

There was one small thing I didn't like about the place - I would expect to see a shower cubicle instead of a shower curtain in the bathroom. The corner shower base was rather small and it didn't feel very hygenic (however, I must admit that the curtains were clean and well-kept)

I stayed here for 3 nights on a recent trip to Ljubljana. I don't speak any Slovenian however the staff all spoke perfect English and all went out of their way to help with any questions. On check-in one of the staff members gave us a map of the city and went through all the main sites. He also provided us with some dinner recommendations away from the usual tourist traps. On check-out the owner organised a taxi for us. They have a special deal with the taxi company and so the taxi trip only cost EUR 3 to the station (compared to the charge of EUR 10 we paid when we arrived).

Other pros:
- Rooms were very clean. Rooms had a tv with channels in multiple languages and a dvd player. Rooms also had a fridge and a computer (didn't use the computer though),
- Towels were changed daily which was a nice surprise.
- There is a small kitchen if you want to cook your own breakfast and also has free tea and coffee.
- Free wifi available in the room.
- Is located very close to the Old Town and also has lots of nice restaurants and bars in the area.

Cons:
- Hot water boiler is not large enough for two people to have an adequate shower. Showers had to be very fast to ensure they were warm enough.
- No washing facilities (slight issue since there aren't really any close by)

Great location, easily walkable to the old town, located in a quiet area. The desktop computer in the room was great! The terrace balcony was also a great place to sip on a cheeky red.

The rooms were very simple, the hot water ran out fairly quickly, and we also had to wait outside the door of the hotel for an hour because the manager went out. The staff member was out fairly often which made it hard to check in and out. Laundry service is listed, however we were told it didn't exist, however.... He kindly offered to do ours for free.

Stayed here in winter with two teenage boys. Wanted somewhere central and cheap, both of which this place is. It's on a pretty cobbled square within about a 10 min walk of the river and the 'old bit' ie. tourist area with route up to castle. There's a restaurant downstairs (good lunchtime pizza) also, across the square, a friendly coffee/snack bar and another place which does Thai food and had live music and good buzzy atmosphere the night we were there.

We had a huge room overlooking the square, the decor and furnishings are a bit 70s, but it's clean and the bathroom was modern with good shower. Considering I speak no Slovenian, the man on reception was exceptionally helpful in getting us taxis to get to an out-of-town car hire location! Plus, they'll store your luggage if you need to check out but want to go exploring before a flight later in the day. There's free internet and tea-making facilities in an open area next to reception. Good cheap and cheerful place to stay in Ljubjlana, especially if you're travelling solo as the internet/kitchenette area gives it the feel of a hostel and you're likely to get chatting with other travellers there.

This pension is a good place to stay in Ljubljana. Rooms were clean not not noicy. Staff is not perfect, there english is poor.
Breakfast is good, and the restaurant provides wide choise of dishes. Before Ljubljana we were in Italy and Austria and for the same price in this restaurant portions are bigger in 2 or even 3 times.

Stayed one night with my teenage daughter. We got a room with 2 beds. It was clean, and other than that very basic. Nice atmosphere. No air condition, though. We stayed in mid summer, the room was too hot. Left at 6 a.m. so I don't know about breakfast. Bottom line - cheap, basic, clean, good value.

Pod Lipo provides basic, very clean, comfortable and cheap accommodation close to downtown. Breakfast abailable in the restaurant below for a nominal price or you can do it yourself in the kitchen upstairs. The restaurant below has an excellent menu, great local food and good prices. Service friendly. WiFi in rooms or computers with internet in rooms.
If you have any kind of budget - this is the place to stay. Cheap parking close by.
