LIVING IN SLOVENIA
ACCOMODATION IN SLOVENIA
The finest accommodation in Slovenia is offered by hotels. You can choose between hotels of all ratings, including some with five stars. The price depends on the rating and the range of services offered by the hotel, but in Slovenia there is always something to suit you. Many hotels have conference facilities, and conference tourism is now booming. There are motels along the motorways and busier roads. Hotels in Slovenia are modern and well-kept, and offer varying levels of comfort, facilities and services in keeping with their international rating of one to five stars. Three- and four-star ratings are the most common, but there are more than ten five-star hotels. In recent years four- and five-star hotels have been able to obtain "superior" status.
All hotels and motels in Slovenia had to undergo a new rating process in 2009 to ensure maximum international comparability. Hotels with one to three stars assessed themselves in line with strict rules, while hotels and motels with higher ratings were appraised by qualified inspectors.
In recent years a series of hotels have undergone extensive renovation, and a number have equipped themselves with state-of-the-art conference facilities and seminar rooms. A huge conference centre with numerous halls was opened at Brdo pri Kranju in 2008, when Slovenia held the presidency of the European Union. The centre is part of the state protocol facilities, but is open to the public. You can stay at the nearby hotel in the foothills of the picturesque Kamnik-Savinja Alps.

There are always many moments of pleasant hospitality to be added to your exploration of Slovenia. For that feeling of a home away from home, look to friendly landlords all over the country for private rooms, apartments and holiday homes. And at inns and pensions you will be received like old friends. Staying in private rooms and inns is a good opportunity to get to know the local customs, attractions and cuisine. There is a wide range of private rooms and apartments in Slovenia. The majority are rated at two or three stars, and offer relatively reasonable prices. Prices per person range from €15 to €50 a night. In some areas the local authorities prescribed a surcharge for single nights. Irrespective of private rooms generally being cheaper than hotels, apartment pricing is particularly suited to families or groups of at least four people. Renting out private rooms is a regulated activity in Slovenia, which is used to fund local government, as the price of the room includes a tourist tax, which is set by the municipality in question. Private landlords should therefore issue you a receipt for their accommodation.
