The hotel is located near the centre of Maribor and it is very easy to reach. It looks very fancy and modern from the outside. However, the room we were given was on the 2nd floor, next to the staff elevator (which we obviously weren't allowed to use), and it is a very loud elevator. We could hear it from inside of our room. Our room was located in a dark, shabby corner and it did not look very promising, but when we walked inside we were pleasantly surprised. The breakfast was really great and there was a lot of food to choose from. Also, make sure you pay attention when the staff is explaining how to get to the garage from the hotel, and vice versa. There are a lot of elevators so it is very easy to get confused and lost.
The Hotel City Maribor is a fabulous hotel on the banks of the river Drava. It lies in a rather nice area in the wonderful city of Maribor at about seven minutes walk from the city historical center. Everything in that hotel is excellent. The room I was allocated (room n. 610) is very comfortable, spacious and peaceful as well as very well lit up in the day-time. I felt very well in that room and didn't hear a noise during my whole stay there. Particularly, the bed is indeed comfortable since the mattress has the appropriate toughness for one to have a good rest. In the bedroom there is a long desk where one can work conveniently with no distress whatsoever. I asked for a table lamp and an extension cord for the light over the desk wasn't bright enough for reading or working on the computer without catching a headache. I had both devices almost at once. On the days I stayed in the hotel we were given the option to have the room made up or not. I think that's indeed a good scheme since it's really reassuring for one to know that he can be out having a good time and simultaneously have the certainty that nobody will touch anything in his bedroom. The bathroom is also adequate and comfortable. The only flaw consists in the fact that there is no shelf in the shower booth to leave, for instance, the shampoo flask, while taking a shower, what forces one to leave it on the floor, with the nuisance that it implies. They assured me however that they were going to install one. The breakfast is very good and varied. Everything offered for that meal is of an excellent quality and taste. There is a large variety as far as pastry is concerned. The breakfast is had at the hotel restaurant. From the terrace thereof it's possible to enjoy a superb view over the river Drava and the relevant part of the city. Therefore, when having the meal concerned on the terrace one's enjoyment is enhanced by the possibility of beholding such a wonderful sight. All the staff members are very helpful, and most of them are kind and friendly. The receptionist with whom I did the check-in was nice but she behaved somewhat fretfully and proudly. At any rate, she was helpful and diligent, and in the long run that's what matters the most. The other employees working both at the front desk and at the restaurant are also kind and friendly and some of the ladies are even charming. The hotel in general is a fabulous place where one feels at ease, in a gorgeous atmosphere, so that the mere fact of being there is in itself a valuable asset, to such an extent that on the departure day one may even feel sorry to leave and would rather stay indefinitely. Staying in that hotel increases no doubt the pleasure inherent to the fact of being in the beautiful city of Maribor. It's of course a recommendable place to lodge.…
We got room at a corner of a top floor, close to main road. But it was not any noise from there noted. In difference to noise from restaurant one floor bellow of our room. Equipment of room is corresponding to hotel class and style. Breakfast was nice with all usual foods plus something more from local area. Staff was pleasant and helpful.
Though the hotel might appear to be a plastic business hotel, it comes with a wide range of amenities and facilities, and a touch of style, that makes it suitable for a long leisure stay too. At the price we paid, it was a great value for money! LOCATION: Lovely location next to the beautiful Drava River, with easy access to old town and all bars and restaurants DINE + DRINK: Cool rooftop restaurant that comes with a terrace offering fantastic views of the Drava river. Great place to chill with a coffee or drink. However the spread of food for breakfast was not that exciting, and they could certainly do better. ROOM: We stayed in one of the Studio Suite rooms, so this review is based on that; VIEW: Sweet view of the River and cityscape; SIZE: Very spacious room ; AIR-CON: Perfectly functioning cooler that helped in setting the perfect room temperature; BED: Comfortable bed that played the expected part to put me to sleep; BATHROOM: Stand in shower; TOILETRIES: Excellent spa quality cosmetics FACILITIES: Excellent Full-fledged fitness center that is loaded with a wide range of weights, machines, and Cardio equipment. Since it is open to local members, it was as good as any urban gym could get! One of the highlights of the hotel, absolutely! SERVICE: Friendly staff that took care of all our needs with a smile and made us feel at home and well taken care of. HOW WIRED YOU WILL BE: Free high-speed Wi-Fi that works well all over the property. Big Plasma TV screen dishing out dozens of channels spanning sports, news, music, movies and a wide variety of entertainment in multiple languages…
Business type hotel, friendly staff, clean, spacious rooms. very good restaurant, lobster was excellent as well as local wine. Location near the river, nice view. Good price performance, would certainly recommend it.
I was visiting Friends in Maribor and choose to stay at City Hotel Maribor - it was the best choice. Friendly staff, clean rooms and pubic areas, adequate gym, safe parking indoor, within walking distance of many restaurants and bars. The restaurant at the Hotel itself is a great location too and worth visiting for lunch or dinner. I will stay again here next time!
I have visit the the hotel in July for few nights and I had Suite. Suite was big and spacious. Suite was missing few amenities like arm chair and dinning table since they could be easily fit into the space. I was also missing that the bedroom of the suite wasn’t separated by the doors from the living room. Decor of the Suite was nice but it reminds me on the transit hotels. Service at the hotel is good and staff is very friendly. However on the second night they forgot to stock the bathroom amenities (shampoo and shower gel). Bathroom amenities where good but where missing few essential like disposable razor and dental kit. Suite was equipped with the Nespresso coffee machine which is nice touch but there is no complimentary water. Hotel is nice and modern and is definitely the best option in Maribor for both business or leisure travel. …
Such a great hotel, very nice stuff, and service is excellent. Rooms are very big and very comfortable as well as so clean. The view from our room was priceless. Breakfast is small, but more than enough, you can find everything, and enjoy the tasty food. I will be back for sure. You have to pay 5 euros for parking per day which is very good price and acceptable for everyone.
Room even bigger than on the photo - really spacious one with a big entrance part. Good and practical table - you can really work at it. Very clean, top-class bathroom both with a hot tube and separate and non-slippery shower section. Nice view on the river Drava. Very quiet location even with the open window and great clean air. Very good restaurant and exceptionally located on the roof with a great panoramic view. Helpful and professional staff always ready to orient you in a somewhat complicated elevators and lobbies system. Good city center location. Slight inconvenience for me was lights in the room - the table was the least lighted area.
We have stayed here twice now. Lovely hotel with great staff. My husband got sick and they gave us an extended leave time at no charge. The rooms are great, nice and big, it has a great breakfast and a lovely restaurant for dinner.
