The Hotel Habakuk is about three miles from the centre of Maribor town. It is situated at the foot of one of the local ski areas and has a few small bars, Pizza Restaurants and other Hotel restaurants within easy walking distance. There are a couple of large rental shops nearby where mountain bikes/Scooters etc. can be rented and the bike/walking trails are all nearby. The main Ski run into the village is immediately behind the Hotel.
The Hotel has numerous leisure facilities, with both outdoor and indoor pools with jacuzzis, fountains, waterfalls etc. The Wellness centre offers many treatments, though these often need to be booked as they are popular with people from outside of the Hotel as well. Sauna, Squash, Gym are also available.
The bedrooms are spacious, comfy beds, clean with well presented bathrooms, balconies on most also.
We stayed on a B&B basis and the breakfast buffet was excellent. Cereals, fruits, yogurts, cold meats and cheeses, breads, jams, pastries, hot food also with a chef to cook fresh omelettes, eggs, bacon etc. I couldn't fault this in anyway.
We ate in the restaurant one night and the meal was very good, no complaints in that department. You can, however eat out very cheaply in Slovenia and the restaurant was probably about three times as expensive as a meal out. We had an excellent BBQ one night at a Hotel down the road for only 6 Euros!
No problems with the language as the people who work in the Tourist industry speak good English.
