Where to stay in Slovenia - by type
The accommodation options in Slovenia can be divided into six main types: hotels, guest houses, B&Bs, self catering apartments, hostels and farm stays.
Slovenia has a range of hotels for all tastes and budgets, from major chains to stylish, small, family-run boutique hotels in Slovenia's holiday hot spots. Some hotels are housed in ancient castles or romantic historic buildings, others are modern and offer all the latest facilities one could wish for (business services, room service, spa and wellness facilities, swimming pool, gym, childcare, games room, Wi-Fi, etc). Major hotel chains found in Slovenia include Kempinski, Best Western, Design Hotels, Four Points by Sheraton, Austria Trend Hotels, Liburnia Riviera Hotels, Minotel, and Apollo.
A guesthouse is usually a privately owned residence, which in part or whole, has been converted into living quarters for guests. Guest houses are a very popular form of lodging in Slovenia and have been in use for many decades. That popularity demonstrates the convenience and affordability of this type of lodging - Slovenia guesthouses are always a great, safe option as they are both comfortable and homely, with proprietors who really take an interest in their guests. Many owners live on-site, so they are immediately available to answer your questions about the local area and address any concerns you have.
Many local residents in Slovenia offer apartments for rent in their houses. It's like home away from home - you can live as you usually do, but in your new surroundings. Generally, all apartments in Slovenia are fully furnished and supplied with household equipment such as linen, towels, cutlery and crockery so you can cook your own meals, do your own laundry and enjoy the privacy of having your own space while on vacation. The kitchen facilities allow you to cook with ingredients picked up from local markets and help you travel for longer on your budget.
Bed & Breakfasts are a popular option for spending your holiday in Slovenia. In essence you get a room in someone's house, with breakfast included in the price. The arrangements at a B&B can vary, although the majority of the time they are bedrooms in someone’s private home and include at least one meal (usually breakfast). In some cases, the proprietors of a bed & breakfast will include two meals with the price of the room – usually breakfast and dinner – and it is often a real treat to have dinner with the homeowners. In Slovenia bed and breakfasts are generally on the small side and owned and operated by your hosts so you can expect personal service.
Hostels (also known as backpackers) are a popular form of cheap accommodation for the budget conscious traveler. They are ideal for groups, youths and single travelers as they are designed to help you meet and interact with other travelers. Slovenia hostels are almost always in great locations - in cities they are generally very well located close to public transport lines and tourist attractions and in coastal areas they are usually within walking distance to a beach and with great views. Most spaces (like bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchens and lounges) and amenities are usually shared. While you might not get as much privacy, hostels are usually cheap and of great value.
Vacation usually means relaxation, time for yourself, and perhaps a little adventuring. While researching your next vacation destination, a farm may not immediately come to mind. Farm stays, are gaining popularity across Slovenia and may just be the perfect balance for your family’s next vacation. Take a break from your everyday routine and recharge with an authentic farm experience in one of the many farm stays scattered across Slovenia. Farm stays are ideal for family holidays, romantic getaways or solo travelers wanting to experience the great outdoors among stunning rural scenery.
