Affordable Apartment Near Ljubljana Train Station
We couldn’t find an affordable Airbnb apartments near the center of Ljubljana, so we decided to book an apartment via Booking.com instead.
We found a 2-bed apartment around 800-meters from the train station, so booked that. Even though we’re traveling as a couple, we like the extra space that a 2-bed apartment provides. We can use the second bedroom to store our luggage and have a more relaxing time.
Living Room at Apartment Lunca 3
This apartment has been recently refurbished and everything is pretty new, but it has a kind of depressing feel to it. For me, the furniture looks a little old-fashioned. The room was also very dark, as it didn’t have any windows. The light comes from the bedroom windows.
I think there should be a small coffee table in front of the sofa. And the walls are bare. There’s no a single picture hanging on the walls. It gives the apartment an unfinished feel.
Kitchen at Apartment Lunca 3
While the kitchen unit looks pretty new, the fridge seemed a bit older. There wasn’t a dishwasher either. The kitchen looks and feels a bit depressing. What’s all that empty space for?
The kitchen had plenty of dishes, cutlery and pots & pans though.
Main Bedroom at Apartment Lunca 3
This was the best room in the apartment. The large windows helped make the room very bright. The bed was larger than most beds we’ve had. There was a TV on the wall. There’ wasn’t a TV in the living room.
Second Bedroom at Apartment Lunca 3
There wasn’t a wardrobe in the man bedroom, so we had to use the one in this room. This is also where we stored our luggage.
Bathroom at Apartment Lunca 3
The bathroom wasn’t great either. There wasn’t a shower curtain and there wasn’t anywhere to hook the showerhead.
Wifi at Apartment Lunca 3
The wifi at the apartment worked well. You can see the result of the speed test above.
The apartment building is right next to the railway track. It was a little noisy but not too bad. It’s only 800 meters from the train station and bus station, so ideal if you’re arriving and/or leaving by bus or train.
The building is also above Orto Bar. One one night there were live bands that were very loud. Luckily, the music ended around 10 or 11 pm.
It’s only a 10-15 minute walk to the city center, so that’s also a plus point.
We paid 303 EUR for 4 nights. I’m not sure it was worth that but there but all accommodation in Ljubljana seems overpriced to me.
Slovenia Tourist Tax
Like many other countries these days, Slovenia has a tourist tax. It’s a rip-off at 3.13 EUR per person per night. That added an extra 25 EUR to our 4-day stay. I don’t see how it benefits tourists in any way.
