Situated in a
neighborhood that’s popular with artists and design conscious travelers, this
1-bedroom duplex apartment embraces the neighborhood atmosphere with its modern
and chic ambiance, combined with touches of historic character. This popular
and lively location features bars and restaurants yet it’s only a short, and
very pleasant walk from Old Town Ljubljana.
We call this our “Mini Duplex” though in reality this 1-bedroom apartment is anything but “mini”. Up to 4 adults can be comfortably accommodated here, offering an affordable alternative to hotel rooms for two visiting couples, as well as the benefit of privacy, space, a full kitchen and the chance to live amidst the locals during your stay.
Whether you’re coming to the city on your own or with friends, the apartment provides ample space for one couple, a family with two or three children, or two couples visiting the city together. You may also be interested to hear that within this same building we have another two vacation apartments available for rent, making this a great choice for larger groups of visitors too.
One-bedroom duplex apartment is not within the Old Town itself, but it’s just a stone’s throw away. In some ways I believe this location on Gradaska Street is actually better than the Old Town – you get to benefit from staying in a popular and lively location without it being overly loud and intrusive when you want to relax.
There are bars and restaurants mere steps away, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to head out for an evening meal or drinks, and, when you want to see the sights of the Old Town it is only a few minutes walk away, alongside the Ljubljanica River and across pedestrian-only bridges. It really is a lovely walk.
In addition, there are grocery stores close by, for stocking up your fridge if you’re planning on cooking your own meals. I warmly recommend the local food market and bakery just around the corner from the apartment.
If you’re coming into Ljubljana by car the apartment does not have its own parking space but you can stop right outside for unloading your luggage. Once you’re finished, move the car onto one of the other nearby streets where parking is free. When you check in, your host will be able to guide you on where to go.
The renovated entrance and hallway to the apartment building provides a bright and clean welcome. Our one bedroom duplex apartment is on the second floor, accessed via two flights of stairs. There is no elevator, but the stairs and wide and do have a handrail for safety.
You can see in this photo that the stairs are not steep.
Plants and flowers decorate the hallway.
Well maintained and clean, the stairs and hallway are also well lit with eight different sensor lights between the main entrance and the apartment entrance so you’ll never have to worry about returning to the mini duplex apartment in the dark.
Bright and inviting, the living room features a full glass door that allows in plenty of light and provides a great view over Old Town Ljubljana and the neighboring rooftops. When the weather in Ljubljana is warmer, the small terrace, accessed from the living room, is a really wonderful place to spend some time enjoying the views, reading a book, or relaxing over your breakfast.
Open the door and enjoy the through-breeze during the warmer months, but when it gets too hot there’s an A/C unit mounted above the door.
It’s hard to beat these views! Can you pick out Ljubljana Castle up on the hill?
The sofa converts into a comfortable double sofa bed, ideal for another two adults or children. You can sit here and watch TV in the evenings, choosing from over 100 channels, or watch a DVD or listen to music on the provided player.
The TV also doubles as a PC with Windows 7 where you can access the internet, check for emails etc, or connect to the free wi-fi provided within the mini duplex Ljubljana apartment. You can connect to wi-fi on both floors of the apartment.
With numerous excellent and affordable restaurants in the surrounding neighborhood you may not want to cook your own meals, but if you do, you can be sure that the kitchen has everything you’ll need.
Hidden behind some of those cupboard doors there’s a dishwasher, fridge and freezer, while on the countertop there’s a four burner ceramic cooktop and a microwave with grill, as well as a toaster and a coffee maker. All the utensils you should ever need are provided within the drawers, and there are plenty of plates, cutlery and pans to make use of.
One of the best things about this one bedroom apartment is the fact that it’s a duplex, so it’s set over two floors. If you’re visiting with another couple or with children this means you get a little more space and privacy. There’s actually a second lounge area upstairs, in addition to the master bedroom and bathroom.
Set into the eaves of the building, the upstairs lounge area has a cozy feel and offers fabulous views of Ljubljana Castle and the rooftops of Old Town from the large roof windows. There’s an additional sofa here, so you can sit below the window and enjoy the warm breeze coming through in the summer months. This sofa can also convert into a large single or a small double sofa bed, so in reality you could comfortably visit this one bedroom mini duplex with three children and still have space for everyone.
The apartment’s only bedroom is situated upstairs. There is no wall separation between the bedroom and attic lounge so this is one reason why the upstairs sofa bed is better suited to a child rather than an adult. Even so, there is a frosted glass door that slides across the entrance to the bedroom so it need not be completely open. The frosted door provides privacy or leave it open and enjoy the openness and lots of light from the dual aspect windows.
Use the wall-mounted stereo to listen to some of the provided CDs, or connect your own MP3 player to the USB port and listen to tunes whenever you like.
Although the apartment is in an area where there’s always something going on, you shouldn’t be disturbed at night because the mini duplex has sound-proof windows which will block out a large portion of street noise. But, if you’re worried about getting too hot in the night there’s an additional A/C unit in the bedroom that is quiet and efficient.
The bright and modern bathroom is upstairs too. There are two features that we feel are a real benefit about the bathroom, first, there is a bathtub as well as an overhead shower. Bathtubs can be great for families visiting with children as oftentimes apartments of this size will not provide a tub. Second, there’s a washing machine so if you’re staying for more than just a couple of days it’s always great to know you can wash your clothes if you need to. When you step out of the tub you’ll be greeted by a warm floor as in-floor heating was installed.
