Hotel Mrak is located in the centre of the old town of Ljubljana. When you enter the hotel lobby, you can feel its cosy and warm atmosphere, unique by its history and location.
The walls of the Hotel Mrak are hiding an interesting and poetic story about a Slovenian writer and his muse. Its garden hides a 200-year-old vine that still gives shade to sit in. This was the home of the famous Slovenian writer and dramatist Ivan Mrak.
As a young man, his father, Valentin Mrak, started to work as a servant in the kitchen of a renowned local pub. As he carried out his work diligently, he was promoted to an assistant of the pub manager and soon he took over the business. When he bought a house and moved his business and family to the present hotel location, close to the archaeological excavations of the Roman wall, he was so excited about it that he decided to name his pub “Old Roman Guesthouse”.
