“Home in Ljubljana.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2013

Location is great, right at the center. 20 min walk to the station with luggage. We booked an apartment. It's on the top of the floor aka. the attic. My husband and i are not super tall. But we still have to bend a little sometimes, like going to the toilet. I think some of the photos here show our attic-like room. There is a well-equipped kitchen and a fridge which i appreciate a lot. Bed is okay. Onr strange thing is it comes with two very thick quilts. Those quilts are for unbearable winter nights, not an air-conditioned room. Overall it's a nice place.

Stayed August 2013, travelled as a couple

These apartments could not be faulted. In a perfect position right in the old town, they represent excellent value for money. Information about location and parking was accurate and informative. It’s important to find the car park with the easiest access as dragging bags across cobblestones can be problematic. The apartments themselves are furnished and decorated in a smart and contemporary way, linen is excellent and they are extremely clean. The kitchen was well equipped and we could cook a complete meal. Wifi and airconditioning worked perfectly. There are seven apartments in the building from studio to 2 bedroom and from our observations they are all equally well furnished and decorated. There is one important fact to be aware of. We had booked a studio with a view onto the river. When we arrived we were given a one bedroom apartment at the rear of the building with no outlook and little natural light. Luckily we had a copy of our original booking and were able to show this to the extremely helpful young man. He contacted the manager who agreed to upgrade us at no extra cost to a larger apartment overlooking the river. The manager claimed that it was sometimes necessary to alter bookings and this was absolutely acceptable as long as the price was the same. She claimed it was explained in the ‘house rules’. This is not okay. A room or apartment with a view is infinitely better than one without, regardless of size. If you both a room with a view that’s what you book.

I recently stayed in Mescanka apartment Ludmila with two friends. We were very pleased with the location (in the middle of everything) as well as with the apartment itself - it was stylish, clean, very well equipped (from shower gel and hair dryer to full sets of different kitchenware). Would definitely stay here again! Wi-Fi worked flawlessly in our studio.

Please consider however that there is no lift and Ludmila is located on the top floor (quite a climb).

I'm really glad that you have enjoyed your stay and I apologise for the terrible wifi signal! We realised that someone unplugged one wifi receiver so one area of the house was not covered properly. We have already fixed that and put a sign asking the guests not to unplug it. The wifi is now working like it should. Sorry for your inconvenience.

We loved staying in this apartment! The location is more than perfect! It is within walking distance to all Ljubljana attractions! A lot of nice restaurants nearby. The apartment was super clean and beautiful. The staff were super friendly and helpful too! I will stay here again for my next visit!

Mescanka is perfectly located and close to all you would want for an excellent stay in Ljubljana. The noise from the bar downstairs didnt bother us and we had a good nights rest. Lots of great restuarants and bars closeby, and in the summer the atmosphere was very special withstreet performances going on throughout the day.

Owner was very helpful in accomodating us for an extra night at a short notice. Would be 5 stars if we had some interaction with the staff and help with restaurant/bar recommendations.

Room was faultless, very clean and comfortable. Loved the quait feel of the building and views out to the river.

Room Tip: Take one with views onto the river

The Apartments Mescanka are ideally located just on the side of the river close to the 3 way bridge . There are bars very close by but we were never bothered by the noise for the 3 days we spent there .
The apartments are fully equipped and there are groceries and bakeries nearby . Bars are restaurants are also easily accessible .
The IKEA type of furniture looks brand new and the rooms are spacious and very comfortable .
We really enjoyed our stay there !
