“Modern, spacious and clean”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The location is actually what makes it attractive. Just around the corner is the river promenade with some cafes as well as the water tower and the wine musum. The bridge to get to the other river side is also very near.
The hotel is clean and the rooms are big with confy beds.
All the staff is very friendly,welcoming and efficient.
Shortcomings: the air conditioning is centrally regulated as other reviewers indicated and the internet access via wiFi did not always work.
The restaurant terrace on the 5th floor has a river view .

I just finished reading the previous review and I am kind of angry. We stayed one night only since we were returning from Croatia. First the room 405 had sewage smell but we were so tired that we just solved it with a plastic bag, a water glass, and water in the shower...(we are experienced travelers). But my huge anger was the air conditioner. The reception NEVER told me about them controlling the temperature. I spent an entire night getting up every 15 minutes turning the damn thing on and it never cooled to the temperature that I wanted. We basically slept at about 25°C (77°F) the entire night with a closed window since the AC only works when the window is shut so it felt hotter. So it was stinky and hot all night. Before this, we had planned to have drinks and dinner at their restaurant Terrace. Awful customer service. We left with only drinks and went to a Serbian restaurant behind the restaurant by the river were we got tons of food, awesome prices, and best customer service.

We had a spacious room overlooking the river. The hotel is within walking distance from the center of Maribor. The beds are really excellent. The breakfast is good.

Tip: The air conditioning is controlled from the reception. The standard temperature is 23.5 degrees (73.4 Fahrenheit). We wanted it a bit cooler, but the air conditioning stopped every time. You can request a lower temperature at the reception.

It is a very good hotel. I stayed there already four times. However, there are some shortcomings that should be looked at by management.

The hotel is nicely located within a few steps from the city centre. Rooms are spacious, well equipped and furnished. The redtaurant overlooks the river and it is highly recommended to enjoy your breakfast on its terrace.

There is also a couple of nice places to explore near the hotel along the river such as the water tower where you can have a drink or a place where you can eat delicious cevapcici, etc.

The drawbacks are: wi-fi in rooms that does not work at all, a tv system - it is so complicated to switch on tv (you have to follow a specific procedure) - it's almost impossible.

But apart from that if you are in Maribor, you should opt for this hotel.

Hotel is well situated near Drava river. It is very easily reachable from the highway. Whole hotel is no smoking. The rooms are spacious, clean and well furnished. The bed and the pillows are very comfortable! The staff at the recption is friendly, helpfull and well English speaking. The breakfest is standard and tasty. The restaurant Terasa is very nice with a good service and with great view to Drava river and to Pohorje. The parking places are nombrous, no problem to find a free place. Maybe the bathroom could be better supplied by small necessary cosmetic (nothing except two bottles on the wall with liquid soap).
Near the old town with many restaurants and bars.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with Drava river view :-)

We planned the stop-over in Maribor just as a simple rest point on the way from Croatia to Austria. What a pity, that we didn't stay there more. Although this is not Maribor vs. Ljubljana review - if you have to choose - Maribor is your choice.

The "Hotel City Maribor" is located in the heart of the city. Just a short walking distance from everywhere. Easy to find, with free underground parking (which is a nice change from the usually overpriced hotel parking in the center of large cities). The rooms are spacious, clean and welcoming. The staff is efficient and friendly. The price was definitely cheap for the hotel of this level.

On top of that (literally) the roof/balcony restaurant worth a special review. The view on the river is spectacular, especially in the night. The staff is attentive to all your needs.
The breakfast is served in the same restaurant, but not on the balcony. The variety of the options is good for every taste: Continental, Full European, Mediterranean - multiple choices.

So, if you need a sightseeing or shopping stop or just a night stopover on the way - this should be the choice.

Room Tip: Try for the room overlooking the river.
