    « Close to the station, a few minutes from the centre »

    A very clean hotel, with good sized rooms. Has showers rather than baths which I prefer and they were clean not a mark to be seen anywhere. The room features a well stocked mini bar and a pleasant desk for work purposes. I arrived by train which is a 5 minute walk away, but the hotel also has a large parking area. Although I did not use it the hotel also features a wellness area. The breakfast was very plentiful and offered wide range of foods to cater for all tastes. Coffee was not good but there are plenty of coffee shops in town. A few minutes walk from the city centre, with a wide range of bars and restaurants and close to all the sites of the town. Very reasonable price charged.

    « Very clean hotel on a good location »

    The hotel is well located, not far from the city center and relatively close to the railway station. The hotel can be reached very easily by car. In front of the building and in close proximity there are enough parking places. The rooms are relatively small, decently furnished and very clean. Overall general impression is that the hotel is very well maintained. Good choice and quality of the breakfast. Only complaint is related to an extremely uncomfortable pillows. Bearing in mind the cost, I am willing to recommend this hotel.

    « Convenient location, not much more »

    The hotel is located near Maribor's old town - which is great for a walking tour. Our room was comfortable and clean. The hotel structure is complicated an inconvenient. Free breakfast was fine, but dinner (for pay) was less than mediocre.

    « Good hotel with good location »

    It is a hotel good for drivers. It is in walking distance to the city center and shopping area. It has a good size parking lot. Room was acceptable and price was good. I would choose this hotel if I will visit Maribor again.

    « Terrible smoke stench, outdated looks »

    After having asked for a non-smoking suite, upon arrival we were given a smoking room suite. They said they did not have anything else available.. but really, how can you give a smoking room to a non smoker? It should not even be possible, or at least contact the customer first! I have never been in a room that smelled like an ashtray in that manner. We then got moved to the only other non-smoking room they had, which was a normal room at ground floor. Also the reception smells heavily of smoke, as both the receptionist and other guests smoke right outside the door with the doors open. If you are sensible to smoke like I am, stay out of this place! I didn't even know ashtrays like this one existed anymore in 2016. Breakfast was actually quite ok, not a huge selection but overall a good assortment to fit most people's needs.

    « A hidden gem in a nondescript neighborhood »

    In a rather nondescript area of a minor Slovenian city like Maribor, this hotel, not far from train and Bus Stations, seems quite average and unappealing from outside. However, once inside this impression must be reversed: the facility appeared to be top level within the Best Western chain, decor and fixtures were almost luxurious, the room was nicely furnished. Just space to get around in room was a bit tight. The bathroom was fully equipped, clean, lit with natural light from a window (something that's becoming increasingly rare nowadays...). The staff was very kind and helpful (a common trait in Slovenia, I find). Restaurant service was impeccable, food was excellent quality and professionally served. Breakfast was abundant, varied, healthy (many different types of fresh fruit) and plainly good. All in all, a memorable stay and an excellent value for money.

    « Good clean location downtown. »

    Arriving at 1:30 AM and finding a large double bed with a fantastic large bed. Everything else is nice. Breakfast in the morning is a most important think.All staff speaking englis german and italian.I was impresed. Secure parking overnigt and penty of spaces. I will come back.

    « Comfortable for a short stay »

    The Best Western Pyramida is clean and comfortable with twin beds in the rooms and half bathtubs plus showers. Breakfast featured a good selection with a coffee machine and some very tasty local fresh fruit. The receptionist was friendly and the linen was freshly laundered and immaculately white. The Wifi was strong and reliable, and the location in the city centre made it convenient to visit the city palace and to walk along the river front. The Pyramida is not a great hotel, but simple and clean and functional. And good value. I slept well and the air con worked in the heat of the Slovenian summer

    « Okay, but could be better »

    Things did not start well. We arrived and were told "Your room is not ready, but I will check", It was in fact ready. Asking about possible tours we were told "Go to the information centre here" indicating a place on the map. Asking about wineries we were told "You don't need to go anywhere - here (pointing to the map) is the oldest vine in the world, go there". Our room was quite compact and clean. the bathroom was strange in that the bath was coffin shaped (really) and the glass shower screen was too small to prevent water spraying over the bathroom floor. Good things? the breakfast buffet offered a good range of dishes and drinks. Not so good? We went into the restaurant for dinner, 30 minutes after opening time, and we were the only people there. A waiter did give us menus but then disappeared. After 20 minutes of silence we decided to try elsewhere in the city: we were aware that the hotel was hosting a dinner in a different room, but hadn't expected to be ignored. On our third morning as we were leaving the hotel to return to Ljubljana, the maitre d' (?) rushed up to us offering profuse apologies and wanting us to stay and have drinks on the house. We couldn't as our taxi was waiting. We have happily stayed in Best Western hotels in several countries, but this one was a major disappointment.

    « Good hotel. Well placed in City centre »

    A good hotel with friendly, relaxed staff. Clean. Rooms are a little dated but not a problem. Staff member Vinko was especially efficient yet friendly and he is an asset to the Hotel. Breakfast had lots of choice. Coffee variable in terms of quality/strength.

    « Clean, Central Hotel »

    Not fancy, but very clean no frills room. Larger than usual with sitting area for tv separate from beds. Quiet area but still central location. Staff was very helpful. Breakfast was very good with lots of choices. Enjoyed the bar area also. Have to pay to park, but that is typical in city.

    « Hope you are not tall.... »

    Staying here as i couldn't get in to Hotel City. The hotel is nice enough, the pillows comfy and the amenities ok. However, the bathrooms are quite poor. The shower only goes up to about 5ft, so if you're taller than that, you won't get under it. The glass panel is tiny so the floor of the bathroom will get soaked and the towels are as fluffy as paper. There is apparently a bar. I saw no drinks other than coffee and juice served from it... and there was no one available to serve when I did want something. So I went to Luft instead just down the road :) It's ok. But I wouldn't overly recommend it.

    « Good city centre hotel »

    Good hotel in the centre of Maribor close to sights and restaurants. Spacious and modern bedroom and bathroom with good shower. Nice and varied breakfast buffet. The staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend.

    « Vewry good hotel »

    Great hotel. Situated in a central location, breakfast is good, staff is very knowledgeable, attentive, efficient and helpful. Room is nice, cozy, and has all the usual requirements in a hotel. A very good hotel altogether.

    « Great place to stay. »

    The hotel is in a great location to the city's center. Everything Maribor has to offer is well within walking distance from the hotel. The room was clean and the breakfast was excellent. The gentleman behind the desk was so informative on where things were and what to do for dinner and drinks.

    « Ideal place for your placement »

    « Correct hotel near to city center »

    The location is great, near to city center (despite Google map shows in wrong place), there is a parking lot (for fee). The rooms are simple but comforable. Breakfast is average. Wireless internet is quick and free.

    « Not sure »

    Hotel has a great location, in the center of Maribor. Close to the Drava river, shopping mall, and the oldest vine in the world. Room is spacious and clean but the bathroom could be a bit spacious. Wi-Fi is decent and it's free. Breakfast is OK. Recommend, but don't expect much.

    « Comfortable hotel »

    Stayed at this hotel on 27 Oct. Room was spacious and comfortable. Beds were soft and lovely. Breakfast was ok but not superior compared to sofitel in budapest. Location is ok. Advantage is that it is only few minutes walk from main train station. old town is nearby. Only stayed for night as we were just passing by so we could get a connection to Vienna. One night is enough if you wish to stay in maribor as you can cover most of the old town in few hours.

    « Decent but not amazing »

    Piramida is a big 4-star hotel in the city centre in Maribor. While it's hard to find faults with the place it's also hard to find words of praise - it's just quite average. You'll find that the rooms in two wings differ greatly from each other. The wing towards the street (opposite the police station) has much nicer rooms which are clearly very recently refurbished. The other wing is nice and clean too but just not as nice. The rooms here have a weird plan as beds are tucked away in one part of the room, facing the windows, and the TV almost has a room of its own, facing a little lounge area with armchairs. Who would watch TV sitting in an armchair in a hotel? It just doesn't feel comfortable at all. Breakfast is pretty good, fresh fruit, hot food etc. Didn't try the hotel restaurant in the evening, but the little bar attached to it is not bad. Service is so-so. Some people manning the desk were nice and friendly but when we came in (with a very big group quite early in the day) the desk clerk took one look at us and announced coldly: We don't do early check-in. Fair enough, but slightly friendlier tone wouldn't have gone amiss. When we checked out, there was some kind of a mix-up with a mini-bar. The hotel said some people from our group had used the mini-bar and hadn't paid for it - however, they swore they hadn't touched anything in the little fridge in the room. Since they didn't want to cause a big commotion and keep arguing, they said they'd pay for whatever was taken - however, the hotel believed them and let it go, which was decent of them, although I suppose a situation like that shouldn't really arise in the first place.

    « Good hotel for football fans »

    Large number of football fans came to Maribor to support Estonian team against Slovenia, Our package included 2 nights at Hotel Piramida. I am representing my personal opinion about this property. First and most important, location is perfect, all main points of interest are in short walking distance. Twin room on second floor was not large, but room with king size bed on ground floor was really large, so if you want really cozy place, you must pay more. Breakfast was good, many different choices, especially I liked fruit and sweets sector. Machine coffee was good, but ordinary coffee not. Bar offered very good local white wines. Sleeping quality was good, I liked that small flat pillow.

    « Perfect choice as a rest after crossing Austria »

    it was a very quick night and passed smoothly, they hotel was simple and i do remember that it offered me a free Fontana SPA entrance.. breakfast was very nice although it was not so rich but was OK for me.

    « Very good hotel excellent value »

    We had booked a standard room, and were given a very large room on second floor near the lift. The bathroom was modern , a bath with shower as well as a separate shower . There was always hot water and plenty of towels - we choose to re-use them The room had a settee and coffee table, satellite tv, tea making facilities and plenty of storage space The complementary breakfast had hot and cold foods and there was always lots of fresh fruit. The toaster worked well The view from our room was a fairly quiet street All the staff - at reception, in restaurant etc were friendly and helpful. When we checked out we were asked if there was anything that would improve guest experience As stated in previous review the location 2 mins walk from bus station was a plus. Became on the Adria airways flight to Maribor and this included free bus transfer I didn' t give the hotel 5* as the decor in reception and outside is rather drab I would definitely return

    « Simply dreadful. Rooms tiny, view of service road, one to avoid »

    We have just checked into this hotel and are currently expected to stay a further 6 nights. The twin rooms are tiny. Other reviews state the rooms are a good size. They are not. The rooms are very basic, dark and dismal. They also have a rather unpleasant odour. The safe is too small for a laptop. The pillows and beds block light switches as the room is so small. The view from the window is of a service road and hotel out buildings. It has free WIFI and free parking. The reception staff are unhelpful and unable to offer an alternative room choice. We are currently looking for alternative accommodation. This hotel has a 4 star rating. It is not 4 star. One to avoid.
