One of the gems of Eastern European tourism, Slovenia is known for friendly hospitality, beautiful scenery, and quaint historical towns. When traveling in this small but charming country, finding the right Slovenia accommodation to suit your needs can go a long way toward making your stay a memorable one. Whether you are looking for a cheap hotel in Slovenia or one of the top luxury Slovenia hotels, there is sure to be accommodation to suit your tastes and budget.
In the capital city of Ljubljana, travelers can find both luxury Slovenia accommodation and budget options. Hotel Lev is Ljubljana's main luxury hotel, while the Grand Palace offers comparative luxury as well as extensive business facilities. Visitors looking for a cheap hotel in Slovenia will find some of the country's best budget hotels in Ljubljana, including the Hostel Celica in the Metelkova City district. Hostel Celica was formerly a military prison, but the artist community of Metelkova City renovated it over a period of ten years, making it a cultural hub and space for art exhibitions.
One of the best hotels in Slovenia, as well as one of the most historical and famous hotels, is the Kempinski Palace hotel in Portoroz, one of the best towns in which to stay while exploring Slovenia's coastal cities. The Kempinski Palace (pictured) is one of the must luxurious five-star Slovenia hotels. Housed in a historical building dating from 1910, the hotel features a variety of architectural styles and is surrounded by extensive gardens and an impressive view of the Adriatic Sea. A modern addition to the hotel houses an excellent spa and fitness complex, with massages and spa treatments within easy reach of the guests. The large number of hotels in Portoroz makes it a popular conference destination, but it also means that individual tourists have many hotels to choose during a visit to this coastal city. Another excellent option for Slovenia accommodation in Portoroz is the Lifeclass series of hotels. Offering three to five-star hotels, the Lifeclass hotels specialize in spa treatments, capitalizing on the health benefits of the nearby salt flats and the brine, mud, and thermal waters they produce.
In some of the more remote areas, such as the magnificent mountainous scenery around Lake Bled, tourists can easily find a cheap hotel in Slovenia. Offering excellent value for money, family run hotels such as the Garni Hotel Berc and Pension Meyer are good choices for those in search of comfortable accommodation at an affordable price. These two moderately priced hotels offer lodging in clean and newly renovated rooms housed in chalet-style buildings that exhibit local architectural styles. They also come with excellent breakfasts and personalized service.
An excellent alternative to Slovenia hotels is staying at a tourist farm outside of many tourist cities. Staying in a tourist farm allows travelers to stay in comfortable but rustic accommodation and experience daily life on a farm. It is one of the best ways to get a glimpse into local life and sample delicious local food and wine. Tourist farms are available in most agricultural areas, including around the towns Maribor, Ptuj, and Nova Gorica, and they offer what is arguably the most unique experience of any accommodation in Slovenia.
