The Ljubljana hotel portfolio has been enriched by several new properties of a different character in the summer of 2012, each of them adding an individual value to the destination’s accommodation product. The most recent opened just a few weeks ago.

Apart from the modern 4-star Plaza Hotel Ljubljana (237 rooms and suites), which is defined by the subtle aesthetics of its interior decor and environmental sustainability, four smaller boutique properties, whose common denominator is design and personal flair, have entered the market. Two of them, the Vander Urban Resort and Adora hotels, boast a prime Old Town location, while G Design Hotel at the city outskirts reflects a stronger bond to nature. The last newcomer on the list is a 3-star urban hotel in downtown Ljubljana, named Meksiko, set in the direct vicinity of the ER and the Polyclinic of the Ljubljana University Medical Centre. It is ideal for users of health services and their relatives, as well as business and leisure travellers. The property features 50 well appointed rooms with free internet access. Its name has been inspired from a nearby building dating from the late 1920’s, called Meksika. This is where many decades earlier volunteers setting off to fight in the Mexican war gathered. Meksika is otherwise known as the first example of collective housing in Ljubljana and is now protected as an architectural monument of local importance. The city centre and the Old Town are just at 10 to 15 minutes’ walk away, and an itinerary leads along the picturesque riverbanks. The railway station is conveniently close, too. www.hotel-meksiko.si
