CLOTHES DO NOT MAKE THE MAN
The university city of Maribor is Slovenia’s second largest city and represents the business, scientific, educational, cultural and political centre of Eastern Slovenia. The Hotel Pyramid last year became the third Slovenian hotel included in the largest hotel chain, Best Western. It is also a part of the tourism company Terme Maribor, which controls the majority of hotel capacities. For businessmen in Maribor the hotel is a logical choice.
Access to Maribor is extremely easy, the city being located at the motorway intersection of the 5th and 10th pan-European transport corridor. There are three international airports in the immediate vicinity of the city (50 to 105 km) and the hotel is located right in the city centre near the train and bus stations. Plenty of parking by the hotel, which in addition is free of charge, is a great advantage. The main attractions of the city are just a stone’s throw from the historical centre and can be reached on foot. The city is small, safe and easy to navigate.
COLD APPETIZER – Architecture and Aesthetics
The modernist hotel, built in the 1950s, leaves little lasting memory from its external appearance. However, On becoming part of the Best Western chain, however, it was upgraded and now meets the standard of the Best Western Plus chain, with the interior now much nicer and more welcoming following renovation. The first pleasant surprise is therefore a reassuring reception in warm colours and with other small details that suggest the hotel will be nice to stay in.
WARM APPETIZER – Staff and Food
The hotel is specialised in catering for business guests, to whom the culinary offer is also adapted. The food is therefore a stronger part of the hotel offer, making the hotel restaurant also popular among the demanding locals. The breakfast is of notably high quality and is very satisfying with its rich selection of dishes. In the summer time the summer garden is a popular gathering point for the Maribor inhabitants. As befits a wine region, there is a solid choice of local and other Slovenian masters of winemaking available in the restaurant. Added to this, the staff is professional and create a feeling of peace and familiarity. In addition they offer a genuine Styrian kindness, which is a great added value of the hotel.
MAIN COURSE- Congress hotel offer
The modern furnishings and spacious hotel rooms spoil with the little things that are important to guests, such as fresh fruit upon arrival and some of the best linens that wouldn’t be out of place in hotels of higher categories. The hotel is very well maintained and cleanliness and orderliness can be felt in every corner.In addition to its guest rooms the hotel also offers a modern business centre with an amphitheatre-shaped hall that can accommodate 94 participants, as well as two other smaller conference halls. A much greater capacity is offered by Habakuk, the large congress centre. At the same time we think that a similar multifunctional congress centre would also work well in combination with the Pyramid Hotel.
DESSERT- Additional offer
Art Cafe Pyramid – with art works of renowned domestic and foreign artists.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Due to the architecture, navigation to hotel rooms can be a bit complicated.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
Super fast Wi-Fi, which works flawlessly throughout the building.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
This is the modern and almost ideal business hotel that will not set you back a fortune. Moreover, for a very reasonable price you get a solid, almost exquisite hotel offer. The proximity of the city centre is a big advantage. On the outside the hotel doesn’t stand out, but this makes the interior all the more surprising and this is what loyal business guests love – the renovated interior appears even more glamorous and attractive. If we look at the hotel in terms of character, whilst it could be seen as quite flat the whole hotel package appears very convincing.
