About the property

Luxury River Front Apartment For Two In The Medieval City Centre Of Ljubljana

FishSquare is a one-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a quiet and peaceful house in Ljubljana's old city centre. The 56 m² (603 sq.ft.) apartment has a living room with a kitchen and dining area, a bedroom with a bathroom and a separate toilet. It has been completely renovated but still maintains the charm of its more than 200 years' history. If you are fed up with impersonal hotel rooms, stay with us and enjoy the intimate charm of the old city as well as the breeze from the linden tree and the babble of the fountain wafting through the bedroom window.

The apartment is elegantly furnished with the best materials, furniture, and amenities because we want our guests to feel at home in comfort and luxury. You will sleep comfortably thanks to the king size bed with a state-of-the-art mattress and Rivolta Carmignani bed linens.

About Matevz Kmet

I have lived in Ljubljana for whole my life and I am still in love with the city. A cup of coffee with friends after visiting the farmers' market on Saturday is something I would not want to miss.

I am also in love with food so when you are guests in FishSquare, we will give you plenty of advice where to go and have a memorable meal.

Matevz Kmet purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Matevz Kmet chose Ljubljana

We were always dreaming of having a place in the charming historical centre of Ljubljana. We have found this apartment by a coincidence and it was a love at first sight. After more than a year of complete restoration (carved wooden ceilings had to be uncovered, sanded by hand and protected, we changed all the windows, installations,... all our inspection of the Cultural Heritage Protection Board) we decided to rent it and let others enjoy FishSquare as well.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment has retained the charm of the old building (while the last major renovation has been completed in 1806, the building itself dates probably more than 100 years back to this) but at the same time we have fitted it with all modern comforts: full kitchen, WiFi, high-end stereo system, top line bed and linens, an iMac,...

We travel a lot and our wish was to once have a place that would offer tourists everything that we miss in hotels and rental apartments around the world. FishSquare is exactly that.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in Ljubljana and Matevz appartment was perfect for our stay: it's quiet, very clean, fully furnished and the atmosphere in this beautiful old building is extremely cosy. Matevz thought of everything when he did the setup for the appartment and he's a great host. Thank you Matevz, your appartment is the place for a stay in Ljubljana!

Modern comfort in an old city

  • 4 of 5

We could go at length explaining how pleased visitors will be to stay here but hopefully that opening sentence will suffice. Very central to everything in Lubijanna and we couldn't be happier.

We do have a few suggestions for Matevz to consider. Please update your brochure. For NA visitors please spend a bit more time orienting them on how European appliances operate. They are very much different. Finding kitchen sink plug behind tap was a great mystery. Inside bathroom door handle needs to be changed to act as a handle. Toilet roll holder very close and roll falls off..

That said, the illy coffee machine and the coffee was fabulous. Very functional kitchen which we used daily. Beds very comfortable and the unit has everything one would ever need. We will use it again on our next visit. Thank you for having our laundry done. That went above our expectations.

Most Perfect VRBO! Amazing, charming, chic, central.

  • 5 of 5

I use VRBO often, but have never reviewed anything before, but this apartment deserves mention! My fiance and I just finished our stay in this lovely apartment. We stayed here for two nights before our wedding in Bled, and it was perfect. The apartment is located so perfectly in downtown within walking distance of anything you could desire. The apartment is spacious, classy, chic, but with a fabulous historic touch. We wished we could move into this apartment and stay for months. The owner Matevz is one of the kindest I have encountered in my travels - flexible in our arrival , flexible in our departure and going out of his way to make our stay perfect. Matevz even had a wedding gift of champagne awaiting us. He truly has put a great deal of thought into ever inch of this apartment - from the jazzy music available on the ipod, to the collection of toiletries you may have forgotten, to the various charging devices you might need, to beer, wine and selection of liquor free of charge. Just perfect. I will never forget this place and would sincerely stay again on my next visit to Ljublana. This place is a gem.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning apartment. Beautifully restored with all the modern conveniences. As centrally located as you can get. In the heart of the historical and very charming walking zone of Ljubljana, we were a stone's throw from many restaurants and bars. The owner has been meticulous on making sure all is comfortable, and also provided a very detailed list of recommended restaurants, which we found helpful. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Without a doubt, our 5 night stay at the apartment in Fish Square was the best vacation rental we have ever had. Absolutely everything is thought out and taken care of from restaurant recommendations, suggestions for coffee to activities in both Ljubljana and throughout Slovenia. Matevz is the most thoughtful host we have ever had. The apartment is beautiful, immaculately clean and well designed. The bed is the most comfortable I have slept in! This was our first visit to Slovenia and the country in general and Ljubljana specifically is now my favourite place in Europe. The old city is stunning with great restaurants and shops. Short day trips abound and we have visits to Lake Bled, Skocjan Cave and Predjama Castle. The Slovenian people are very welcoming and helpful. While there were some tourists, if you want to visit a place where you are not over-run by visitors then Slovenia is the place for you and this apartment will serve as a great home away from home. We will definitely return.
