Antiq Palace Hotel & Spa 4**** Small Luxury Hotels of the World
Set on a peaceful side street in Ljubljana's atmospheric old town, this hotel provides an oasis of calm, with superior accommodation in rooms and suites.
Once home to one of Ljubljana's noble families, this 16th century building now houses a charming luxury hotel. Small and intimate it has just 18 rooms and suites. The reception area is in the cool entrance hall, with eye-catching flower arrangements and antique furnishings. To one side is a cosy lounge, where guests can take complimentary tea or coffee or sample the local schnapps.
To the rear is the beautiful courtyard, where guests can choose to take breakfast.
The Antiq Palace is situated next door to Ljubljana's music academy, from which the strains of students practising drift across, somehow fitting to the stately Baroque ambience.
Accommodation is in standard rooms, or 1 and 2 bedroom suites (min 100 sqm +), some of which have self-catering facilities, making them ideal for families and those who appreciate a greater degree of freedom. They are all beautifully in keeping with the building, with parquet floors and chandeliers and remnants of the original frescoes from 16th century. The hotel does not have its own restaurant, but being so central, food can be ordered in from many of the nearby restaurants.
The small spa with sauna and steam bath must be booked and is available for private use only. The spa is decorated with fragments of frescoes dating back to the 16th century and opulent gold mosaics.
