“Huge Room, Character & the Best Breakfast”
Reviewed 12 November 2012

We stayed at the Antiq Palace Hotel & Spa for two nights in November 2012. Although we had paid for a 1-bedroom suite, we were upgraded to a two-bedroom suite which was spacious and also included a kitchen but was rather sparsely furnished. The beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfast, which was included in the price, was one of the best I've seen anywhere. The staff were very attentive and always available to help.
The bathroom in my very large suite was exceedingly tiny. The room was so narrow I found it hard to comfortably move within. While large, clean and elegant, the entire suite was looking dated: the doors and windows were painted over so many times they were sometimes not functioning properly. Furthermore, some hardware was missing and it was impossible to close some of the double windows. The weather was quite cold when we were in Ljubljana and we had trouble keeping the room warm enough.
I consider all of these to be minor inconveniences especially considering the hotel's charm and character and the very friendly staff, not to mention (again) the wonderful breakfast.

We stayed in #12. I recommend #12.

No problems with heating/cooling. Great TV stations for English speaking guests. Huge upstairs which we didn't need but loved nonetheless. Comfy bed. Minor issue with hot water in the shower. Need better hot water heater I guess. Jacuzzi tub also in large bathroom. Friendly and caring staff! Had a minor problem with locating hotel due to incorrect address listing and we couldn't get passed the barriers but the staff was overly eager to help and rectify. The hotel desk even asked about superstorm sandy and if it affected us. No one else in Europe did this! She also gave us a great recommendation for lunch. Great city. Great hotel. This city hasn't been found by the hoards of tourists which makes it a small gem and I recommend staying at this gem of a hotel. Go before it becomes like Prague!!!!! Great desert shop down the street. Have a green apple macaron! Also really likes the squeeze it yourself orange juice station for breakfast. Good value! :)

This place is perfect for pets. They provided me with a comfy bed, a water bowl, and packages of yummy treats! Just perfect. And it is in a wonderful walking area. I have stayed in nice hotels all over, but never treated as nicely. Sometimes places don't even allow dogs...can you believe that?

Great location in a beautiful city - easy to walk to all main attractions, restaurants, shops. Very spacious rooms, very comfortable beds. Staff were very helpful - recommended some great restaurants close to hotel.

Stayed here for 2 nights at the end of our road trip through Croatia and Slovenia and this was by far our favorite hotel!

Staff was absolutely incredible from the moment we arrived! Helpful with restaurant recommendations, luggage, parking and great breakfast and service both mornings.

The "room" or more accurately one bedroom apartment was amazing. Huge bedroom, 2 bathrooms , spacious living room and kitchen. High ceilings that open up the whole space and large windows that offer nice light and views. The bed, couches, all furniture were so comfortable. If we could pick this apartment up and move it to NYC, we would be happy!

Location is perfect, right inside the pedestrian quarters and ideally located right by all sights and restaurants. Still just hidden enough to offer complete privacy and a nice quiet night's rest at the end of the day!

Cannot speak highly enough about this hotel. Absolutely amazing! Cannot wait for a return visit to this beautiful hotel, in a beautiful city!

We recently had 2 nights at the Antiq Palace and Spa. This is no ordinary hotel. We had our own private and very large, comfortable apartment, complete with sunny balcony. The cold drinks and fruit platter awaiting us in the sitting room were all we needed before we had a great nights sleep after a 32 hour plus trip from Australia. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive, even down to supplying detergent to wash our clothes. The breakfast choices were extensive and of top quality. The hotel is very conveniently located in the old town, close to the river, shopping and multiple places to eat. Although as a pedestrian area we had to walk a very short block from our taxi.
Just before our visit I noted some not so favourable reviews so was concerned. Disregard them! Our experience was so positive. We very much look forward to our next visit. maybe we can take advantage of some of the other services of the hotel on our next visit.

Room Tip: We were in suite 8 on the second floor. There were only 2 of us and we had a choice of bedrooms. The...

When we arrived in Ljubljana, it took us a few minutes to locate the Antiq Palace. We were not aware that you could not drive up to the hotel doors. After we parked, we decided to just walk around to find the hotel instead of calling. When we finally stumbled upon the hotel, we were amazed by how well it blended in. You can barely recognize that it's a hotel! Once we entered, we were immediately greeted by staff who apologized profusely for us having trouble finding the hotel (even though we had had fun looking for it). Throughout our stay, the staff was kind and absolutely excellent - helping us with whatever we needed. The hotel itself is very unique. There is an amazing blend of modern and old throughout. Our room was enormous and beautiful - 4 rooms for two people! Overall, this hotel made our stay in Ljubljana an incredible treat!
