Hotel Orel

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The location of the hotel is great, it really is in the very heart of the town in the pedestrian area. The pedestrian area made the arrival with the car a bit challenging. My room was very spacious and clean, but rather modest - just the basic furniture. The room design is perhaps from the 80's. So, the hotel is modern. The breakfast was surprisingly good and the service at the reception very friendly. When next time in Maribor, I might choose another hotel matching better to the old town atmosphare.

It was a good choice to book this hotel because it has a wonderful position, practically in the center of the city. I decide to visit Maribor and I was fascinated by her beauty . So what can I say more of this it is : go to visit this city !

Nice place and staff. The room was clean. In the center of the city, near bars and restaurants. We used the parking of the hotel. The breakfasts was excellent, I recommend this hotel to everyone who needs an accommodation in Maribor.

The hotel is in a great location in the old part of the city. Room was a good size and comfortably furnished. The staff were very helpful and breakfast was included. Overall a good value, mid range hotel.

The rooms were clean and comfortable if lacking in luxury but the location was absolutely spot on. Just off the main square surrounded by bars and restaurants and spectacular architecture. We went for the Liverpool game and the locals were very welcoming and the bar owners didn’t rip us off.

Book a suite , big room . Greta spot , friendly staff and nice breakfast included in the price. Right on the main square and handy for the football ground which is ten minutes walk. Friends thoroughly enjoyed the hotel and good value.

We arrived without a booking and received a great deal with a top floor room with views over the city. 5 stars is for value for money, position and service from the front desk. We must say the front desk manager Matic Mandl made all the difference to our experience here. He was so helpful, friendly and accomodating to our requests and questions. Other front reception staff could learn so much from him about customer service and building a business! Breakfast was ample with hot food and eggs, but get there early. Bed and room comfy though quite dated decor. Don't get room near the lift as lift is very noisy for some reason. Orel is in a brilliant position in Maribor with a great wine bar in the square out the front - actually lots of wine bars!

We stayed here for 1 night as part of a driving road trip of Europe. We parked in the hotel's car park which was within the pedestrian area - but could be accessed following contact with the hotel who enabled the road bollards to be lowered. This worked well for us. Check in was very friendly. The room was spacious including both a separate bathroom and toilet within the room. The room was basically furnished compared to some hotels but was fully functional and clean. There was however, no view from the room - but this did not bother us for an overnight stay as our focus was to be out and sight seeing. We were able to explore on foot directly from the hotel and enjoyed exploring the town and found a good choice of restaurants. Breakfast the next morning was pleasant before we continued with our road trip.

The location inside the old town is fantastic, public parking is about 100 m away, hotel seems renewed, room bright and spatious, really wide selection for breakfast. Wifi without a password, and works perfect. Hostel and hotel rooms are in the same building, actually I did not realize any separation; like the idea ! Missed a kettle to prepare a tea or coffee, did not miss fridge so much (stayed only for one night). I slept well, but some of my colleagues (in other rooms) complained about noise from the street during the night - of course, in the centre, next to many pubs and restaurants.

Misleading facility description, no communication from the hotel to solve the problem in advance (we needed safe parking in the city center, and we wrote the request in the reservation), no help just arrogance from the extremely rude receptionist.
