For every pocket, and for every taste. This statement certainly applies to accommodation in Slovenia. If you are in need of pampering, choose a hotel, but if you value human contact with welcoming locals, the right choice is an inn, a pension or private rooms. Leave the city behind, and relax on tourist farms. Campsites provide direct contact with natural greenery, while there is special accommodation for hikers and bikers in the valleys and the mountains. There are many other places to stay on our list, the most gathered in a single place in Slovenia.
Hotels are the top of the range for accommodation services in Slovenia. By no means are all hotels expensive, as a bed can be had for as little as €30 a night. The majority of hotels in the country are three-star, but there is a wide range of hotels with higher ratings.
Most hotels in Slovenia are in city centres, in popular tourist destinations, at natural health resorts and at thermal spas. Many of them also have conference facilities.
The personal touch
There is a wide range of private rooms and apartments in Slovenia. Prices per person range from €15 to €50 a night. Many private rooms offer breakfast. Holiday homes can be rented, mostly in holiday resorts. Slovenia’s inns offer accommodation, and good food, often in the best local style. Some pensions also offer excellent cuisine.
Staying at a tourist farm is a wonderful experience, especially an ecological tourist farm, with healthy organic food.
In touch with nature
Slovenia’s campsites are ideal for those who appreciate value-for-money holidays, but are capable of convincing even those who are looking for an open-air five-star hotel. Camper vans and caravans are welcome at campsites.
Many hikers roam Slovenia’s mountains and hills, and they like to stay at mountain lodges and cabins, not least because of the friendly, open-minded company you always find there. Accommodation designed especially for hikers and bikers has emerged recently in Slovenia.
For the young at heart
As elsewhere, in Slovenia too youth hostels in the Hostelling International network are an ideal way to meet other travellers and to learn of their experiences. They are some of the very cheapest accommodation available.
In pursuit of tradition
A major innovation are Slovenia’s houses of tradition, where your hosts will tell you about the history of the house and the local area, and will make you a traditional dinner of your choosing. Recently in Dolenjska it has become popular to rent a zidanica, the traditional holiday cottage, where people go for relaxation and entertainment.
