While newly refurbished the hotel is located in a 16th century palatial city residence and has bagged one of the most prestigious addresses in Ljubljana. Inside you can see the décor reflects the historic building and surrounded by boutiques, cafes and restaurants it’s an ideal location for exploring the city. If you fancy something slightly more rustic in its authenticity, then why not stay at the traditional shepherd’s huts just outside of Ljublijana. Made from natural materials and furnished in a traditional manner, you’ll be transported back in time to the life of a shepherd. The huts area a great location for skiing in the winter and hiking in the summer and once you’ve spent the day exploring, you can watch the sunset on the terrace in the evenings.
