“Clean and old”
Reviewed July 27, 2011

Location is the best asset of this hotel. The room was very dark (one small window) and furniture old, but it was very clean. Our room didn't have airconditioning and it was very hot in the night. When I made the reservation, I read from the hotel description that the hotel has airconditioning but it didn't say that there are rooms with and without airconditioning. So I made the mistake of assuming that all the rooms have AC. This also partly explains why the room price was lower than in some other hotels (the rooms with AC cost more, I read in the hotel).
Pleasant surprise was that our room for three contained three real beads, so the third bed was not an extra bed (meaning usually a sofa).
This is a good choice for a short city break, if you are not planning to spend too much time in your room.

+ clean
+ breakfast was included

- bed was noisy and old
- didn't had the reservation on file when we came in
- kind of expensive
- has an old vibe to it not maybe due for a renovation I guess some people can find some charm to it

we stayed two nights. The room was impeccably clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was good and the staff pleasant and helpful. The Pri Mraku is ideally located in the university area; near several restaurants and a 5-minute walk to the historic downtown area and the riverside bars and restaurants. Recommended.

They give you everything you really need at a reasonable price. Position is very good and the hotel is clean and relaxed. Breakfast is decent but it could be better. Wifi for free is a great facility they offer. Good for families but also for business trip if you want to avoid boring international hotels.

Having trawled the 'net for a hotel in Ljubljana as centrally located as possible, I was shocked by how much the room rates had increased over the last few years. Having previously stayed at the Hotel Park - never again - I was amazed at the rate they and others were now charging. In the end, and admittedly with a heavy heart I opted for Pension Pri Mraku. I say with a heavy heart only because it was in an area of Ljubljana I did not know too well.

My arrival was on a wet night in September, when much of the country was under water, was not such an auspicious start. However, check-in was quick and efficient, with the male receptionist being helpful and patient. The room exceeded my expectations by a long, long way. Travelling alone, I am used to being shoe-horned into box rooms and being charged the earth for the 'privilege'. Nothing could be further from the truth at Pri Mraku. I had a capacious double-room at my disposal; a room in fact that looked like it had been recently renovated. The bed was the most comfortable I've ever known in Slovenia and storage was plentiful and clean. The room, and equally modern bathroom was spotless. After a long journey I usually fear being unable to unwind but as soon as my head touched the pillow I was out like a light until the morning.

The morning didn't bring weather of much improvement but no matter, holidays are all about making the most of it, come what may. The breakfast, part of the €80 room rate - which also includes tourist tax - was sumptuous and varied. Despite a party of Americans doing passable impressions of Gannets, I had a good feed which set me up for the long bus ride to Lake Bohinj. The only regret I had was my stay was not longer at Pri Mraku.

Much like my arrival, check-out was swift and without fuss. On a longer stay in Ljubljana I will not hesitate in returning to Pri Mraku and I can unequivocally recommend it to all.

Nice hotel near center of activity, which is the river district and all the restaurants and bars along the river. Slow wireless in the rooms but good enough for email. Breakfast room was a little small and crowded and the selection was not the best that I have seen before. Otherwise first rate.
