Maribor apartment: This full of character building was was once Archduke Johann's Maribor house and a hotel named after him in 1850s. Now you can enjoy this beautiful and bright Maribor apartment in the very city centre.

Spacious with high ceilings and quiet, it offers luxurious living space with a balcony overlooking the city square.

The apartment consists of: entry hall, invigorating room with kitchen and dining room, connected to the daily-living area with a guest bed and 'cosy corner'. Main area is also connected with the balcony overlooking the town square and with shops and cafes.

The location is perfect for people who love nature, since you can walk to the lovely Maribor city park, and the nearest bakery is less than 20 meters away. Bed with memory foam mattress will be happy to relieve you from tensions of everyday life.

Simple access by city bus (No. 6) to the circular cable car at the foothills of Pohorje. Maribor Pohorje is the biggest ski centre in Slovenia, so with staying at this apartment you get yourself a perfect combination! Excellent ski slopes, first-class wellness-spa centres, beautiful natural surroundings and local friendly people of Maribor!

I'm originally from Maribor, Slovenia, but living in London now - hence this great opportunity lies in front of you. I own a software company and am always on the way between Slovenia and England.

You have to love Home Away. It allows you to discover a city or a country in a lot more authentic way. I want to make your stay at home as nice and comfortable as possible while I'm away.

Simon purchased this apartment in 2011

I always like the idea of living in the old town centre, where everything is at your fingertips and living spaces still have a bit more 'personality' than all these new apartment blocks. It took me a while to find a nice spot, and here it is. I like it a lot, I hope you will too!

And there is the balcony overlooking a town square. Perfect for people spotting and just feeling the vibe of this city.

Just the fact that the building was was once Archduke Johann's house, who loved city of Maribor and even got a hotel named after him in 1850s is a rarity. Last year we had some frescoes and old period features renovated. There is a beautiful arched entryway and a great courtyard available now, something that used to be just a parking lot before!

And to make it all even a bit more special: my dad has a vineyard, so if you book via HomeAway, I'll make sure there will be a bottle of his results waiting for you =)

Beautiful atmosphere

  • Submitted: Aug 1, 2013

Hi all,

The atmosphere in the apartment is really beautiful and you feel homely because it was owned by an Archduke. At the same time is modern and very comfortable and very bright.

We loved the historic centre. Although it has not snowed and we came here to ski for New Year's eve, we were able to take advantage of Pohorje Ski with artifical snow and we had a great time. This holiday will remain in our hearts.

We love Slovenia

We are a family from Barcelona and have been at your nice and comfortable apartment from 19th - 22nd August. Our trip began in Koper (Slovenian coast) and we enjoyed a lot to swim in clean beaches; then Ljubljana - a very nice city and finally in Maribor. Small, but cute city. We love all cities with rivers, and Maribor is such a calm place. We also went to Pohorje, Logarska dolina and Rinka waterfall. Splendid!

Everything was very good

We were here from 12th - 16th of August and we had a good time in the apartment.
Everything was very clean and there is nothing to complain about. Thank you very much.
Thanks for the wine in the fridge, but we both are not really wine drinkers, so it will be a souvenir.
Thank you again!

Lovely Maribor

The apartment was beautiful. The decor was up to date and it was spotless clean. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, pots and everything we needed to cook. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space. Kids liked the wifi access and we did too, to check out what is happening. We saw many things in Maribor because of the culture capital events all over the place. We also found bread and bakery very close. I would recommend it if you are looking for a place to experience life in Slovenia and not just the tourist stops. And thanks Simon for the wine!
