Apartment Barrio Alto is location in the heart of Gornji Trg, meaning "Upper square", one of the most charming districts of Ljubljana's old town, nestled under the Castle Hill. Gornji Trg is home to a number of Ljubljana's top rated restaurants including the famous Špajza opposite the apartment entrance and an eclectic range of bars and boutique hotels and shops. It is also the start point for walks up to the Castle and the adjoining park on the top of Castle Hill all of which offer magnificent views over the city and Alps in the distance. Occasionally Gornji trg is host to an outdoor craft market and to Summer concerts. The apartment is located in a historic building dating back to 1763 and which was renovated in the 2000s, retainig all of the charm of the original building. It adjoins a church designed by Plecnik, Ljubljana's most famous architect (don't worry as the church is decommissioned there are no church bells to wake you up in the morning). Whilst in very easy walking distance to the very centre of Ljubljana Old Town (3 minutes to Stari trg & the river, 10 minutes to Prešeren Square) Gornji Trg remains quiet in the evenings and is an authentic and charming base to experience Ljubljana's old town.

Lovely stay. Great location & everything we needed. The host were great and lovely after stay care. I left a very sentimental piece of jewellery and the hosts contacted me to let me know and posted it to the UK for me. Very honest.

We stayed in this apartment for a month. We loved our stay in Ljubljana. It’s such a lovely city. The apartment is in a good location a little off the tourist route. Far enough to be quiet and authentic Ljubljana but close enough to be at the central market or Open Kitchen in a ten minute walk. The hosts were thoughtful and kind and quickly responded to any communications or questions. They even sent a list of restaurant recommendations. The apartment is small and quaint and had pretty much everything we needed to cook meals at home etc. The WiFi is a little weak as the router is probably in the owner’s apartment next door. We couldn’t get the TV to work but we didn’t really want to watch TV anyway. We preferred to get out and enjoy Ljubljana!

A lovely flat with everything that you could possibly imagine. The owners really thought about everything.

Odlična lokacija, mir v okolici, prijazno in ustrežljivo osebje.

I will keep Barrio Alto in best memory and would love to return one day, esp. if I travel alone :-)
We loved the aesthetics of this beautifully renovated apartment! We loved the location, the architecture of the whole street and Barrio Alto in particular. We loved the fresh bread that you could buy in the bakery down the road.

Séjour très agréable location bien aménagée très bien située

Wonderful apartment in a wonderful neighborhood. Very magnificent feeling in a 1700 building. Highly recommended! :)

The location was great and contact with the owner was very good. We had a nice weekend in Ljubljana. I recommend this place!

Sweet property, perfect location.

We couldn't have been happier with this perfectly-placed apt, complete with cove ceilings, well-conceived layout and fixtures. 

Great location in a very central yet quiet neighborhood. Lovely apartment and very friendly and helpful hosts. Really nice spot in a beautiful city!

Ideal position and charming place to stay.

Very comfortable, clean and well-appointed little apartment with wonderful vaulted ceilings, you feel as if you are in a palazzo! Situated in beautiful old town, close to all the shops, museums and other amenities. Excellent restaurants and coffee shops on the doorstep. Kind and helpful hosts.

Gorgeous apartment in a great location. The flat is newly renovated, very tastefully done, and is right in the centre but on a quiet street. You just walk out and within minutes you are in the heart of the town. There is a lovely walk up to the castle behind the flat too. We visited in December, and though it was cold outside, the apartment was really cosy and warm. It’s in a charming building, characteristic of the old town. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a good, powerful shower. The bed is soft and comfortable. We have stayed in Ljubljana a few times but this was by far the nicest apartment we’ve stayed in. The restaurant over the road is wonderful too. Hosts were lovely! We will definitely visit again.
