Hotel Antiq, Ljubljana, Slovenia

Concierge.com's insider take:
This intimate, family-run hotel below Ljubljana Castle has just 16 rooms with romantic views over the Upper Marketplace or the private back garden. It's not perfect: Some of the mix-and-match furnishings clash with the patterned wallpapers and carpet, though one traveler's cloying is another's charming, we guess. This is the place to book if you are more interested in sipping afternoon tea in the garden than a cocktail with the smart set. But the small size keeps it well off the tour-group radar and it's ideally located in the Old Town's historic pedestrian zone (plan not to drive here).
