Malovec Hotel Skocjan Reviews
Cheap hotel near Skocjan Cave Dec 15, 2012
The hotel located within walking distance from train station in Skocjan Slovenia and also as the town is really small, it is very easy to find the hotel and we don’t require other people assistance. Luckily we have a doodles of the hotel location from the website.
When we arrived at the hotel, actually we entered the old hotel building which is now become a restaurant only. We thought probably the room is upstairs of the restaurant. After we checked with the person in the counter, she advised us to go next door to the big hotel to check in.
So, we walk next door to the bigger building and check with the reception if we have the right hotel, as the website only showed the small hotel (which is now a restaurant). Indeed, she has our booking (we booked through the internet the night before) and after all form filled, she gives us the key and led us to our room.
We have downstairs room with big French windows which lead to the balcony outside with two chairs and desk facing a small area in front of the small garden and parking space.
The room itself is quite basic but clean, spacious with one double bed and one single bed, big wardrobe to put the stuff inside, medium size desk, 32 inch television, dresser and one chair inside the room, a very small shower cubicle, with toiletries supplies, they even gives a big bottle of shower gel and shampoo.
The receptionist is really friendly, helful, and informative; she even offered to gives us a ride to the Skocjan cave, as at that time no public bus operating to the cave anymore (as it is autumn) and we couldn’t find any taxi either. She also waited for us when we had our lunch before going to the cave. She advised to ring the hotel to pick us after we finish exploring the cave.
The price of this hotel is really cheap (I don’t remember how much does it cost as we booked from the website), but it is less expensive if you walk straight to the hotel and enquire about the room than book online. And the price is include breakfast at the big hotel building. The breakfast room is quite big and it is buffet breakfast style but not many selections, consists of different types of bread and sweet croissant, ham, salami, cheese, and salad. You can get coffee and hot chocolate from the coffee machine on the table and it is self service.
Surprisingly it is very quiet and dark at night time and we couldn't hear any noise at all from the other room. The bed is comfortable and nice to sleep in.
I would recommend the hotel restaurant at the old building which serves good quality and quantity meals at very reasonable price compare with other restaurants nearby at this town. The meals we had for lunch and dinner were delicious. Otherwise, you can walk out from the hotel and there are several restaurants nearby.
