Does anyone have suggestions for a charming accommodation in or near Piran? We will have a car so prefer something with parking. Prefer to keep it under $180.00 per night.
If you are staying in the old town (recommended), then none of the accommodations will have parking - you'll have to leave the car in the lot at the entrance to town. You should be able to drive in just to drop off your bags. It's not an especially long walk from that lot the center as I recall (this was eight years ago) - I didn't have a car when I was there, but I stayed at a place close to the town entrance, so it would have been pretty convenient for me to park/stay there, if I'd have a car.
I stayed at the B&B Miracolo di Mare. It was OK as I remember, would definitely stay again. Should be within your price range, but I don't recall it being charming.
It was definitely worth staying in the Old Town area even if you have to park outside.
We had a room with balcony facing the main square (Tartini) and really liked it. Looking at photos, it may have been the Arthotel Tartini, but I am not certain.
I loved Hotel Tartini and have incredible memories (and photos) from the balcony with ships sailing across as the sun set. Dreamlike.
$140 / night in October, 2017. Parking, as mentioned elsewhere, was in a nearby lot. We were able to pull up directly in front of the hotel for about 10 minutes to drop our bags, then park and walk (the short distance) back to the hotel.
Thank you everyone. I will definitely check these out. I appreciate your descriptions and advice about staying in the old town part and parking. It's good to know that it's nearby.
We are staying here at the end of September.
I found lots of options on AirBnB when I was searching in January.
Looks nice Dave. Will you have a car? If so, what is your plan for parking for this accommodation?
We don't "do" cars.
We are train people.
Or, in the case of Piran: ferry people.
Hi, Lori. Thanks for your reply on my Slovenia post. Not sure for which Dave your last comment was meant. But... I did not have a car. Cars are not allowed in the old town of Piran. There is an enormous parking garage outside the old town in which to park, and a shuttle carries people from the garage to Tartini Square.
As Dave mentions, there is a huge, safe parking garage just outside of Piran with a shuttle. It is also very walkable. Leave your car there and stay in the beautiful old town.
In the summer of 2017 we parked in the garage, took the shuttle to the square, and reversed course 2 days later. It was easy. Stay in the old town!
