Your strategic partner in creating success stories in hotel management and tourism.

ABOUT THE COMPANY

5 Start Ltd. was established in 2010 with the vision to raise the quality level of hotel management and tourism in our region. When passion for tourism and our region’s potential met, a combination of two forces was created that has been writing success stories for several years.

The story begins on the edges of the city centre, where Betnava hotel Maribor was placed on the map of business hotels, which our business guests have rewarded with return visits and which was recognised by local companies with whom we have successfully cooperated for years.

We hosted some prestigious names from the world of sports, such as Slovenian football A team, UEFA delegates and referees, Slovenian small football team, national teams of Kuwait, Oman, Dubai, Qatar, and we continue to serve as Maribor FC quarantine facility. Due to covid-19 epidemic, our story concluded at the peak of our success, as we routinely reached 74% occupancy.

In May 2018 we opened another hotel, strategically located at a main highway exit in Maribor, Maribor INN hotel, which is also intended mainly for business visits. The hotel features the already well-known Gostilna Modra frankinja restaurant, intended for closed groups and events.

Team of tourism experts.

Maribor INN hotel contains 19 rooms that provide a pleasant and comfortable stay. Our guests say that the best ones are those with a view of Pohorje. And they are right. Both sunrise and sunset give them a special charm.

Rooms in the hotel are air-conditioned, equipped in contemporary style, and have free access to flawless fast Wi-Fi.

Our guests can expect more than just comfortable accommodation and friendly staff. The hotel features two business areas - Jurka meeting room and Muškat business office, while the seminars can be wrapped up by a culinary experience at Gostilna Modra Frankinja

First-grade ingredients alone are not enough to perpare delicious dishes. The key to that are preparation techniques that our chefs and their teams always put to use masterfully.

Remember your grandmothers’ dishes, add a modern twist, and you have ended up with a dish that will satisfy all your appetites and cravings. That is what you will find here.

Simply good.

BE SMART

GO DIGITAL

In 2020 we became the exclusive representative for Slovenia, as well as for Serbia and Croatia later on, for the TMRW smart app, where we provide smart solutions for hotel accommodations. Contactless business operations have certainly become the new future in hotel management and tourism. Thus, guests receive a safe experience, while the accommodation owners receive cost optimisation, better orderliness, and a new guest pool.

The first day of the new year of 2021 had born a new story, which is currently being written on Pohorje mountain, titled Pohorje Village Wellness & Spa Resort, that will enrich this magical place with the only thing it is still missing – people who can appreciate the wonders of nature and surrender to their comfort.
