Centuries of sociability

The story of sociability at the Mitra Hotel began as early as 1786, when Jožef Kipertz, the first coffee-roaster in Ptuj, became the owner of the building. He later opened a café and managed a large ballroom in the building, where he entertained guests at gala dances, banquets and other events. In 1802, Kipertz sold the building to then 39-year-old innkeeper Henrik Jožef Strauss and his 26-year-old wife Alojzija, who went on to entertain the public of Ptuj at dances and events. Some printed invitations like this one from 1818 were preserved: “Grand Ball Invitation”. 

In 1809, Mr. Strauss died, and the house along with the café was taken over by the young widow Alojzija. The lady was a very enterprising woman. She named the café and inn "Zum goldenen Strauss"  (= At the Golden Ostrich). This is how the inn got a resounding name, while Alojzija also preserved the memory of her first husband. 

Hotel Mitra Ptuj offers you and your business partners two conference rooms, which are connected to the rich historical heritage and history of the hotel. Stories from the city’s rich history are present in every room in the Mitra Hotel, which is why we also named the conference rooms salons, as they emanate a special feeling of authenticity and hospitality.
