Perfectly positioned in the old town so that all the attractions are within a few minutes walk. We had a pretty room full of character with all the usual amenities including a fridge and tea / coffee pot.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view if you can.

Location is very convenient. The apartments are on the river, with plenty of restaurants close by and walking to tourist attractions. Good sized rooms, very clean with compact kitchen (we ate out, so didn't need it, but if you're one for self catering, seems all the equipment and utensils you need are there. Although reception is not there 24 hours, the staff were very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for just one night and were completely comfortable. A full studio apartment was great space, although we spent most of our time in Ljubljana out in the streets. The bathroom was a little tight, but clean and functional. There are some pretty serious stairs up to the rooms so be prepared to haul your luggage up. Also, given how centrally located it is, it is also loud in the rooms while the nightlife continues outside, not a problem for us, but if you are an early or light sleeper... Overall great stay, friendly staff, etc.

Dear Sarah
We are glad you liked the studio. As you already explained Meščanka is in a heart of old Ljubljana. This is why we installed sound proof glass windows. The noise should not be a problem when the windows are closed. When you close the windows in hot days we recommend that you turn on an air-conditioning. It improves the temperature and the overall comfort of the air. Thank you for staying in Meščanka, hope to see you again soon. Petra

We had a river-view studio for 2 nights. Lovely view, double windows so noise wasn't a problem. Everything clean, plenty of room for the three of us, nice bathroom and kitchen. Loved being in the middle of the pedestrian-only area, as we were pulling our luggage to get here (5 or so minute walk from the taxi stand/bus stop) one of the free electric carts stopped for us and took us to the door. Out the door tons of charm and places to eat and hang out. Ljubljana couldn't have been more delightful, would love to come back someday. Only ding was the wifi worked poorly for us, we spotted the router just as we were leaving and it looked like it wasn't working. Should have said something so they could have fixed it early on.

Room Tip: Get a river view if you can

Great location for visiting the old town, right in the centre of everything. Helpful staff and a quaint sizeable apartment with kitchen, lounge, bathroom and separate toilet.
We booked late and had a room without a view, it would have been nice to see the canal.
