“Great location”
Reviewed November 29, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here on our recent trip to ljubljana, had a great room overlooking the river
Service is great, friendly staff with good sense of humour. Location is perfect, right in the middle of the old town below the castle. Wouldn't even consider staying anywhere else if we return to ljubljana.

Mescanka is perfectly located in Ljubljana old town. The structure is very cozy and comfortable. My room, with double bed and bathroom, was nicely furnished, warm and very silent. Maybe only a little bit dark, but that was not really an issue. Staff are extremely cordial and helpful. Ideal place to roam around and enjoy Ljubljana.

This is a very good guest house suitable for a short stay. The room was large and comfortable, desk, a separate chair and a mini safe (not big enough for an iPad). Flat screen TV with lots of channels. It is set up with a fridge, some basic crockery and cutlery so you can self cater a bit. We stayed in the Minka room, standard, it was up 40 stairs. The bed was comfortable and firm but not much give in it (not a major issue, just my personal preference). The bathroom was good with a large modern shower with good shower head, towels weren't too soft. The location of the hotel is excellent being in the old town (in the car free area) alongside the river, very close to all the tourist sites, lots of cafés, wine bars etc. Staff at the hotel were extremely helpful, great directions were provided to enable us to find the hotel. The hotel is in the same building as the Corso cafe which provides a 10% discount to hotel guests. There is free wifi in the hotel with good reception, as well as a computer in the foyer that guests can use. LJBULJANA really is a magical place, well worth a visit and Meskanca a good choice. The town itself also has free wifi, but it seems to have a much weaker signal, ok for email and Facebook but much more difficult to access websites.

We stayed in an apartment with a double bed for one night and absolutely loved it. The room was large and nicely decorated. Both the kitchen and the bathroom were modern and appeared to have recently been remodeled. It was such a lovely and inviting room, we tried to extend our stay but it was not possible. Our room overlooked the river and the vibrant pedestrian street below. The location was great! The area is beautiful and there are many sights nearby. I am a light sleeper and was worried about the noise from the bars and cafes below but the double windows blocked the noise and I enjoyed a very restful night's sleep. The front desk was pleasant and helpful.

Keep in mind that the area around the hotel is a pedestrian area and there is no elevator, so you will need to carry your own bags.

I would highly recommend this hotel to my friends and family, especially for an extended stay.

We had a great stay at Meščanka, the rooms are newly decorated and very clean. Our room overlooked the river and is in a great location only meters from the triple bridge at the base of the castle. The markets are open in the morning just by the bridge for you to get a coffee, strudel and some fresh fruit and veg. On the noise issue, well.. There is no issue, admittedly we stayed on the edge of low season but found it not loud. Being in the middle of a city you have to expect some level of noise.

A terrific location, 50m from the three bridges, these are super apartments. They are clean, comfortable, pleasant and well-appointed. First class in every respect. The staff are friendly on arrival, the beds are comfortable, there are plenty of towels.

We arrived by plane from Hamburg, via Munich and I had arranged beforehand to have a taxi waiting for us. it was a great decision.! We were let off at Kongresi Trg and then schlepped our bags over the bridge and cobblestones to the Apartments. It actually wasn't as bad as we thought it would be.
The studio(LILI) faced the front of the pedestrian street and also the river. Not a bad size,nice bathroom and a pretty well equipped kitchen, BUT it would have been SO nice to have had a French Press or similar to make a cup of Joe in the morning. Location excellent. Was apprehensive about the noise problem.....it was not an issue with the windows closed. Yes.....curtains were sheer and so light came thru the windows all night.
We have friends living in Ljubljana and they found meeting us there convenient.
Staff was friendly and helpful.

Only negative if you have a vehicle....we had one for our last 2 days. Do not park close by at Kongresi Square parking garage.. The price was outrageous. 30 euro for not even a 24 hr./day. I almost had cardiac arrest. After THAT debacle , we found outdoor parking close to the University Theater.
Would stay here again.
