A very pleasant hotel in the very centre of the city. Extremely welcoming and helpful staff. WiFi is available in the lobby.

The rooms were very comfortable - we had one of the bigger ones with a sofa, and plenty of space. Separate bathroom and toilet were a bonus.

Although no restaurant provision the hotel is metres away from a main square with restaurants. Breakfast in the hotel though provided a good wide range of options.

Would recommend if anyone goes to Maribor.

Room Tip: There appear to be larger and smaller rooms. I can't remember if there is a difference in price...

This hotel has without a doubt got the most fantastic location in Maribor. The hotel itself is a little bit dated but so nice and cosy. The staff were all fantastic and helpful - also with arranging taxis for the group from Graz airport to the hotel and back again for a lot less than we had been quoted elsewhere. I had a room at the back of the building (room 311) which was nice and big - double bed, and a sofa area. It was nice and quiet - I could not even hear people coming and going late. Some of the group had rooms at the front and did not complain either. The hotel also has a hostel bit which is a bit more tired - but with excellent rooms - one was two double rooms and a living room (this became the party room for obvious reasons..) I would not have any qualms about staying in the hostel bit the next time if need be. The bathroom was nice and clean - soaps and shampoo provided but no body lotion. Separate toilet was also appreciated.

The breakfast was very good with a good selection of breads, hot meals and cereals. Some sweet things there too for those who like that. Staff was also very helpful here and quick to clear the tables of people who had finished so we never had to wait for a table.

Wifi works in the lobby only - but that was not a problem.

When you go out of the hotel and turn left you only have 20m or so to come to a nice square with great restaurants, busy markets and nice bars. I only wish we could have stayed more than the 3 days we were there for. Fully recommend this hotel to anyone.

Hotel is located in the old section of Maribor. Great and helpful staff and accommodations. Room was cleaned very well daily. Breakfast is free and good. Rooms along street can be noisy at night, so best to ask for a quiet room. Parking can be a bit tricky, but staff always found us a spot even at the busiest times.

We had a one night stay in July at Hotel Orel en route between Ljubljana and Budapest. We hadn't made a booking and spent some time walking around Maribor's city centre before deciding on Hotel Orel, mainly due to it's excellent and central location. We paid 82 euro for a double room with free parking and breakfast included.

The room was very large and it was nice to be able to spread out. It was clean and comfortable but a little dated. The room didn't have air conditioning or a fan which we thought was surprising given the price of the room (and the summer heat).

We found the front desk staff to be very helpful and breakfast was good.
