“Ok for a night or two”
Reviewed August 14, 2011

Reviews and guidebooks warned us about "communist-era" hotels in Slovenia and Croatia, but this was the only one, even on our limited budget, that really seemed to have survived intact from 1967.
The name is absent from the sign (seriously, we circled twice before deciding that the building labeled "Hotel" was definitely our destination), and the entrance is almost hidden in a row of business doors. The lobby is dark and cramped, and the neighbourhood is parking lots, construction sites, and grocery stores.
However, it is not awful--don't run screaming from the spot. Coastal Slovenia is an expensive area if you aren't booking for a week into one of the resort hotels. This place has free onsite parking, clean rooms, breakfast included, and is only a couple of blocks to the edge of the city centre, where restaurants can be found. It's only a short drive to beaches and the tourist draw of Piran. So if you want a night or two in this area without breaking the bank, this is an option.

We spend one night (only one, unfortunately) in this hotel, making a pause on our trip.
I love this hotel, their comfortable beds, spacious rooms and bathrooms.
Also, I was pleasantly surprised with a wonderful buffet breakfast.

I will stay there again, if I come to Koper :)

Koper has little to offer in hotels and we found the Vodisek to be very friendly and, surprisingly, comfortable. The hotel buildings is a but run down and the hallways are poorly lit. However the reception was friendly and very helpful; the restaurant dinner turned out to be one of the best seafood meals of our whole vacation. the bedroom was quite large and the bathroom was fine; the shower was really good. Furnishings in the bedroom are a bit old and minimal, but everything was clean and comfortable. When booking on the web site, you are told that the price is significantly less for cash - seems pretty much the norm for this part of the world. Breakfast was a disappointment, with a very limited selection.

Avoid this "hotel" at all times. I don't know who gave them three stars but the place is hardly worth of one. It looks terrible outside, the bar/restaurant is unbelievably small and ugly, the rooms are like hostel rooms. The bathroom was the only good thing about this "hotel". Or maybe all the bad stuff made it look better than it actually was. The worst thing though was the staff. They were the rudest people I've ever dealt with. We tried to check out and pay with credit card but the woman said the price was 20€ more than we were told and gave no reason. We later found out it was cheaper if you paid with cash. Then we had to find an ATM ourselves to save the 20€. She didn't smile, no, never. She didn't speak English, she didn't speak anything. She threw the change on the table and we heard no goodbyes.

Once again, do NOT come to this hotel, it's not worth it, at all. Otherwise, Koper was a nice city.

I have stayed here twice. It was very clean.
The rooms are nice and have been updated. I stayed for 2weeks.
I was given a refrigerator to use within half an hour of inquiring.
The showers are awesome! Lots of hot water and preasure.
That staff is very friendly and accomadating.
This is a hotel, not a resort. The amenities are as one would expect.
VERY centrally located. Walking distance to everything.
City center, restaurants, beach, Futball stadium, two grocerie stores, shopping complex.
A simple, yet adequate breakfast buffet is included, as is unlimited coffee throughout the day.
I would definately stay here again.

Last year in our trip to Italy and Slovenia, we had to stay as emergency in this hotel, as we never did find the place we did booked(fortunatelly we didn't pay it ), and this was the only place Visible that daaark night.
Anyways, the good was that parking was free, the Hotel is more like a pension, or B&B, anyways we had discount, and the breakfast(buffet) was included and it was nice wonderful fresh bread!!!.
We decided just to stay 1 night cause the room was too hot and no chance to use the airco, the shower didn't was 100% good, the place was noisy(corridor), our room had no window to the outside(just one in the roof)...
No kitchen service(only breakfast), or bar.
So, i suggest this place if u are in a hurry, is quite central from a Shopping center, bus station, 2 supermarkets(really good and cheap), free parking!...Near to HI - Koper - YH Port Hostel in Ankaranska 7...this hostel is sooooooooooooo cheap, includes breakfast, free parking and free internet , is a hostel so u wont find luxury, but all clean, working and u can rest and go here and there without worries!!

I stayed at this hotel for one night with my wife and two sons on the way from Italy to Croatia. The location of the hotel was within walking distance from the bus station and the adjoining train station and not far from the old town of Koper which is worth a visit.

The hotel is part of a shopping and office complex where our room was situated within the middle of, it consisted of one double bed and a mattress on the floor,, that 's ok for one night but it is described as a budget hotel but we didn't pay budget prices. The staff were friendly and the breakfast was adverage for an eastern European hotel.

It's ok for a one night stop over.
