DESCRIPTION: old-charm apartment on the third floor (no elevator) with a fabulous view of the castle and river! It consists of a very large bedroom/living room with a king-size bed, a nice little kitchen in the next room, and a small but functional bathroom with a toilet, sink, and shower. The air conditioning unit is very efficient and the large windows make the room very bright (maybe a little too bright in the morning, black-out drapes might be a good idea). The décor is basic and uncluttered. The kitchen is well-equipped, but there is no dishwasher. Linens are provided. Everything was very clean.
ARRIVAL: weather and other delays made us miss our connecting flight so I emailed the owner to inform him we needed to change our meeting time. He replied almost immediately which was very reassuring. His contact person met us in front of the apartment at the newly-agreed time to give us the keys and a quick tour. Asking questions from home and on-site was quick and easy.
WIFI: free and worked well.
LOCATION: unless you plan on exploring the outskirts of the city, no car is necessary as this apartment couldn’t be more central! It’s in one of the corners of Kongresni Trg, right on the river next to Brv bridge! As soon as you step out of the building, there are many things to see, photograph, and visit not to mention a great variety of restaurants. The ride from the airport is no more than 30 minutes (I suggest taking a GoOpti or any other type of shuttle instead of a pricey taxi). The bus station is about 15 minutes away on foot. We found it extremely easy to walk everywhere in town.
NEIGHBOURHOOD: despite the fact that this apartment is in the middle of it all, noise was never a problem. As soon as we closed our windows, we couldn’t hear anything going on outside. There are countless cafés and restaurants all around, as well as a convenience store (Mercator, 30 seconds on foot) and a large grocery store (Centro Commerciale Maxi, roughly 8 minutes on foot). Finally, we always felt very safe in this area, even at night, as it is very lively.
I highly recommend this apartment! Thank you for making it available Dimitrij!
We have just returned from a really wonderful few days in Ljublijana.
From the moment we made the booking Dimitri could not have been more helpful, detailing suggestions for transfers and things to do once we arrived.
The Apartment is on located right on the river with beautiful views across to the Castle, bang in the centre of the pedestrian old town with restaurants and cafes on its doorstep. When we first arrived, the communal areas felt little dark and daunting, but once you reach the apartment (4th Floor) the contrast is amazing, large light airy rooms, spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly want.
By the time we left we had fallen in love both with the apartment and Ljubljana.
We hope to return and if we do we will definitely book this apartment again.
My husband and I had such an incredible stay in Ljubljana, and no small part of it was thanks to Dimitrij and this wonderful spot. Literally perched over the Ljubljanicka river, you are in the center of it all, with extraordinary views and access to everything. Dimitrij was very helpful with everything we needed to know to get there and gave us great tips that enabled us to get off of the tourist trail. Thanks so much!
Great apartment by the river & on Kongresni Sq. Very helpful owner, close to the three bridges & restaurants.

We enjoyed our stay at Dimitij's apartment. The location was perfect. A view of the castle, right on the river.....couldn't be finer! Dimitrij was a perfect host, meeting us downstairs and carrying our bags up the 4 floors. The apartment was very clean and well appointed. Would have liked a little less rain and more sunshine, but that can't be controlled! Would highly recommend this apartment if staying in Ljubljana.
