The family-owned Allegro is one of our favourite hotels in Ljubljana for combining an excellent location with bucket loads of charm. This hotel is ideal for couples or anyone who wants the city on their doorstep. This is a small hotel however, with only stairs to access the rooms on the upper floors; those with mobility difficulties should request a room on the ground floor.
In the heart of Ljubljana at one end of a popular strip of restaurants and boutiques, the Allegro Hotel is barely a five minute walk to the Triple Bridge. The airport is about a 30 minute drive away.
WIFI connection is free throughout the entire hotel.
Reception is open 24 hours a day in summer (June - August) and until midnight at all other times of the year.
Due to the absence of a restaurant (breakfast room only), there is no 'Food and Drink' score. The hotel offers a B&B meal plan only.
Although the Allegro Hotel came into existence in 2008, its building has been around since the 16th century. The hotel was renovated in 2011 when 5 new rooms were added, bringing the grand total to 16. We appreciated the cosy lobby decorated with oriental carpets, armchairs upholstered in rich fabrics, luxurious cream and gold wallpaper, paintings and pretty light fittings. The entry hall features mini chandeliers, a huge gilt-framed mirror and an internet corner. A wooden staircase leads guests to the upper floors, where the majority of rooms are found (as well as a second internet corner on one of the landings). Upon arrival, guests are welcomed with a shot of amaretto or whisky cream which could be enjoyed in the lobby or even in the small but private central courtyard.
Most of the rooms are decorated quite differently from one another. Even though there are only 16 rooms, there are various categories available: budget, single, twin, double, superior double (one with balcony), family and superior family. Due to the size and age of the building, there are no lifts so be prepared to climb one, two or even three flights of stairs (however, only two rooms are found on the top floor). Rooms aren't particularly spacious, nor do they look brand new or boast the latest design but they are clean and thoughtfully decorated with real antiques. They are also comfortable, warm and homey and a pleasant change from your average cookie-cutter hotel. Rich colours such as plum and Bordeaux have been used in some rooms, while others boast a girly cream/gold colour scheme finished off with small crystal chandeliers. Some rooms feature carpet floors while others have polished timber floors. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, as well as LCD flat screen televisions. Bathrooms throughout the hotel tend to be on the small side but are clean and functional.
There is no restaurant at the Allegro but a bar (at Reception) and breakfast room located in the basement of the hotel. The cosy space is actually an ex-wine cellar and features stone floors, a curved ceiling, engraved wooden chairs and wooden tables draped in pretty lace tablecloths. Breakfast is a hot and cold continental buffet.
