“Nice hotel for relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2013

I have been there several times over last year, last time in June 2013. Hotel is having free parking and internet connection. Room itself is one of the best I’ve ever sleep in – clean, well equipped, and “traveller” friendly. Buffet breakfast is rich with freshly prepared eggs upon traveller request, dinner in restaurant is simply amazing (especially during summer if you can sit in outside terrace). Hotel team is friendly and well supportive, staff in restaurant with deep wine knowledge and ability to recommend the best wine to your meal. In summer, fully recommend to by walk straight to top of ski slope – amazing view on Maribor from top of ski slope. Planning to come to Maribor for romantic weekend with my wife, Arena will be surely my choice. Really nice hotel in amazing area for relaxation after busy business day.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view on ski slope

My hubby and I stayer There for just four nights last August and We had a nice experience. Breakfast Was good and plenty, the wellness areas clean and modern and included in the Price, 80 euros at night per Room. Most of staff is lovely and friendly, the hotel is close to sports facilities. The city of Maribor is 6 km far from it but fast to reach even by Bike that you can easily rent.
Our Room Was cmfortable and big enough. The only drwback Was that they didn,t vacuum it for the 4 Days We stayed There. Anyway, We highly recommend it!

Excellent location direct on skislope on Pohorje... All the running, walking and biking courses are nearby hotel accomodation... Great view on artificial lake, mountain and city of Maribor...

Beside hotel on skislope takes place annual Golden fox Ski competition and the finish ist just few metres away from hotel - that's why hotel name is Arena...

Hotel is newly arranged and refurnished, the staff is very kind, helpfull, professionall and willing to help...

Hotel is with car just few minutes from Maribor city center away...

We choose this hotel for a four day long family ski trip at the beginning of March. This period called "Boom Holidays" in this area, and this means you get super nice prices and a free ski pass. The hotel's location is fantastic, just at the end of the ski slopes. You can easily walk down to the cable car's station, but there is also a chair lift right next to the hotel. There is also a bus stop next to the cable car station, where you can take bus number 6 to the city center.

The rooms are beautiful: dark wood furintures, cream and green colours, landscape pictures on the wall. The bathroom was big, clean and nicely decorated with floral tiles. There was a flat tv in the room, and the hotel provided free wi-fi. We had a huge terrace with outdoor furnitures.

The boom holiday package came with halfboard: there was a big selection of foods at breakfast buffet and at the evening buffet too. At the dinner they give you cold water free of charge, and you don't even have to ask for it, which is a nice touch. Sometimes the restaurant gets a bit crowded, this may cause a little inconvenience.

The wellness area is very relaxing, clean and cozy. There are saunas, jacuzzis and rest areas. For some people it could be confusing that the wellness area is swimwear free, but the hotel provides big and soft sauna towels, so you can hide in it if it's a problem for you. There is a nice selection of teas, fruits and lemonade here - they are included in the price of using the wellness area.

All in all: I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: The best rooms are in the new, 4 star wing! Ask for a balcony and a view to the ski piste.

My wife picked a hotel for a nice "Valantine's day" sleepover with a skiday next morning. The hotel has great location just along skislope of Pohorje. On this slope have a Fis worldcup race for alpine slalom and giantslalom every year "Golden Fox". The hotel is newly refurbished, the rooms are quite big and clean with a balcony and some of them with a direct view on the mentioned skislope. The breakfast was great , then we immediately checkout and went with skiboots direct skiing.
Great pick...

Where can I start? Hotel is located on the slopes of Pohorje out side of Maribor. You can reach the city center with a 5 minute car ride. Hotel is right on the slopes. It has a beautiful view of the mountain. Hotel is really new and everything is excellent. Hotel staff was really friendly and eager to help. I told them that our trip was special and they threw roses all over the room. Great touch. Room is spacious with great king size bed. Lots of pillows and really comfy. Mini bar is really nicely stocked and the prices are descent. Bathroom OK.
Wifi connection was excellent in the whole hotel.
Breakfast was amazing and there are lots of choices of cold cuts, salads, cereal, yogurts, fruits, and hot plate with big variety of hot food.
Spa is amazing! Lots of saunas, couple of whirpools and resting areas.
Open late so you can enjoy it after a long day of walking around.
I would recommend this hotel to everybody because I know that I am coming back!

Got my room after canceling another reservation nearly 30% more expensive. This hotel offers great value for 56 euros per night (breakfast included). The room and the bathroom were big, modern and clean. The breakfast buffet offers several cold and hot options and there was no problem with the sitting space. The hotel has 2 lovely terraces where you can eat or have something to drink. To connect to the city center ( this hotel is located in an area great for skiing but outside the city center) there is a bus station 50m away. The buses ran every 15-20min, and it takes around 20min to get to the city center (the price per ticket is 1,10 euro).
I can only recommend this hotel to everyone interested in getting a great experience for an even greater price!!!
