Staying in one of the Nova Gorica hotels enables travelers to rest comfortably and find a good base from which to explore the surrounding attractions, such as the Kostanjevica monastery, the various medieval castles, and the holy mountain of Sveta Gora. For tourists who want a little more excitement in the evenings, Nova Gorica is also famous for its nightlife, and many hotels in Nova Gorica double as Vegas-style casinos. There are plenty of options for Nova Gorica accommodation, including both budget and high-class lodging.
The Perla Hotel Casino is one of the stars of the city's nightlife and one of the most popular hotels in Nova Gorica. Illuminated by neon lights at night, this four-star hotel is the largest of the Nova Gorica hotels and often the first choice for conferences and large parties. This modern hotel is well equipped with a large casino, along with many table games and slot machines. The casino prides itself on its professionalism and player-friendly atmosphere. A reservation at the hotel includes free admission to the casino, the discotheque, the indoor swimming pool, the four saunas, and gym. Various massages and spa treatments are also available for the ultimate relaxation experience. With three restaurants and several bars and lounges, not to mention 250 sumptuously appointed rooms, the Perla Hotel can provide all you need in Nova Gorica accommodation. The nearby four-star Park Hotel also has a large casino and luxuriously appointed rooms.
For a more affordable alternative to the glitzier Nova Gorica hotels such as the Perla and the Park, the three-star Sabotin is a good mid-range choice. Located just outside of the town, the Sabotin is in close proximity to many outdoor activities, such as fishing, golf, swimming in a natural lake, kayaking, and hiking. Staff at the in-house sports center can provide help with adventure activities in the region. Guests at the Sabotin are offered a complimentary pass to the casinos at the Perla Hotel and the Park Hotel, allowing visitors to stay in more affordably priced Nova Gorica accommodation while also having access to the casinos and nightlife. The Sabotin offers comfortable en suite rooms housed in an early twentieth-century mansion with several dining rooms and indoor/outdoor swimming pools, and it is an excellent mid-range option among the hotels in Nova Gorica.
Travelers looking for a cheap Nova Gorica hotel should check out the youth hostel located to the south of town. Normally used for student housing, the 377-bed residence opens up to tourists and groups during weekends and holidays. Although it is located rather out of the way in a quiet and sparsely populated area, the Nova Gorica Youth Hostel (pictured) is a good choice for the budget traveler.
Another excellent choice for budget lodging is to stay at a tourist farm in the area, such as Tourist Farm Malovščevo, which is situated just outside Nova Gorica. Staying at a tourist farm costs a fraction of the price of the big hotels, but the farms offer wonderful hospitality and delicious food. Wine tastings, live music, and local dining combine to create an authentic regional travel experience that may be more memorable than staying at a large commercial hotel during a trip to Slovenia.
