“Quirky But Tired”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

Antiq Hotel is well located at the end of a pedestrian street. The hotel definitely has personality
as it is a jumble of rooms on various levels. Our room (#4) was plenty big with a decent bathroom
but the decorating left a lot to be desired -- white polyester drapes -- old bedspread, etc. The mattress was the worst of our 5-country tour. I could feel the springs poking me. We received clean towels every day, but the maid never made our bed. One morning, we were awakened by the staff at 7am talking just outside our window. (Laundry room was just below us) The breakfasts were fine but you had to sit at miniature rod iron tables and chairs - better suited for a little girls tea party! Definitely not up to a 4 star rating.

We just returned from three weeks in Slovenia. Nine days were spent in the lovely capitol, Ljubljana. Our hotel, the Antiq on Gornji Trg. in Old Town could not have been better. The location was ideal--on the cusp of the lively shopping and dining street of Stari Trg. and the quieter Gornji that curves up to the ancient castle. Because Ljubljana is traffic free, it can be tricky to get a taxi to drop you off at your hotel, yet alone NEAR it. I'm happy to report that the Antiq is situated at the beginning of a traffic-free zone, so you only have a few yards to walk from the taxi drop off point to the Antiq. The hotel's appointments are excellent. The reception area is just off a small lobby with fireplace and bar, then opens into a charming dining area where a generous breakfast is served every day (including scrambled eggs, toast, cheeses, meats, yogurt, cereals and more). The coffee is not your usual hotel fare but bold and tasty. Behind the dining area is a lovely tiered garden for drinks or just sitting quietly, reading and writing.

The staff could not have been more kind and helpful. Hats off to Matjaz, Anja, Barbara and Gregor. They were politely attentive to our needs, from booking tours, taxis, printing out boarding passes to answering questions in perfect English. They alone would garner 5 stars if such a category were available.

Our room (#8) had three windows overlooking a charming square with a lovely fountain . During the last weekend of each month, local craftsmen set up stalls along the street in front of the Antiq, and it was great fun searching for the unique gift to bring back to the States.. Our room was comfortably appointed with large bed, couch, writing desk, air conditioning, plenty of storage, and a frig bar. TV was available, if you have not been conveniently distracted by the charms and beauty of Ljubljana. The toilet was in a separate room with a sink; tub, shower, and double sink were in an adjacent bathroom. And in the event you have to be connected 24/7, free Wi fi is provided by the hotel. The Antiq Hotel is in the perfect vantage point from which to explore the city and its enviorns. We recommend it without reservation.

Room Tip: Room #8 occupied the entire front of the 2nd floor and double paned windows helped maintain a quite...

It was located in the heart of the old town so the attractions, shopping belt and food joints are within walking distance. The hotel itself was quaint with tasteful decor. We booked two rooms, Rooms 4 and 5, and though it was meant to be the superior single, I think it would be spacious enough for two to a room. Both had a generous bathroom and a sitting area that overlooked a little garden. Breakfast was basic - coffee, rolls and cereals - but adequate.

It is located in the pedestrians only zone but the road is less than 50 metres away so pushing our luggage from the road to the hotel was a breeze. The airport shuttle (which does not need advance booking as Ljubljana is a small airport) costs 9 euros by the way. You will be able to see a prominent sign for this service at the airport.

We made the hotel bookings about a month in advance but we came during the Eurobasket season (a basketball league among the European countries held in Slovenia) so the price was a little inflated. But we checked with other hotels in the area and found out that it was common practice to raise the cost during this season, so it was okay I guess.

Stayed at the Antiq with friends for two nights at the end of August. Very pleasant and very centrally located hotel in a lovely city. Room 13 was bright and clean and very spacious. Good bathroom and towels. Nice view over the back of the hotel to gardens. Did spot the infamous large dog in the neighbouring garden, but he was not a problem! Breakfast served in a nice area and was varied and ample. There are a lot of mirrors everywhere! Staff helpful and spoke excellent English. Ljubljana is a small city and all the sites are within easy walking distance of the Antiq. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Room 13 is more of a mini-apartment. Up several flights of stairs, but worth the climb!

Located on the walking street in Llubljana’s old town, this hotel occupies a converted mansion, or two, and is decorated with artifacts from the old days. Hotel staff is friendly, courteous, and very helpful. Our suite was located on a fourth floor walkup and was generous in room and facilities with comfortable beds and plenty of lighting for reading. The included breakfast was complete and in lovely ambience. An overall wonderful hotel experience which I would recommend and would do again.

We asked for room 13 as recommended by Lonely Planet guide. Unfortunately it was a climb up 3 flights of stairs but the room was large and clean with the bed room up another set of stairs. There was a light covered terrace out side the room. Breakfast was very good and set out in a unusual space on the ground floor. The staff were helpful and friendly. The hotel was located in the old town and close to all the sights and restaurants. No car parking and access by car is only possible before 10 am. Overall a rather more unique place to stay than you might otherwise find.

Room Tip: Check out room 13 but it is a climb of 3 flights of stairs. Room 8 over looks the fountain in the s...
