We stayed at Hotel Center for 5 nights while we were exploring Ljubljana and Slovenia. For 60 euros/night, you can't beat the price and the location.
The rooms were what you'd expect from a budget hotel--sparse, but clean. Each side of the bed had a bedside table, the bathroom was quite nice and clean, and we were provided with a fan (it was at least 90 F every day). No TV in the room, but that was fine by us. Breakfast was not included, we were given vouchers to buy breakfast for 4 euros in the bar next door. We didnt' end up using them, because it was cheaper to buy from the bakery down the street. If you rely on the bar, however, be aware that they're closed on Sundays and holidays, so the option was only available to us 2 of the 4 days we were staying.
Now, as for the noise--yes, there is definitely noise from the road, so make sure you bring earplugs. That being said, for the location (5-min walk from the old town), you won't find a better price. I much prefer road noise to bar noise, so it wasn't as bad for me. The noise was a lot better with the window closed, but it became unbearably hot. It was also hot in the hallway because there are no windows/AC/etc., so there is no air movement.
We found that all of the people who worked at reception were nice and helpful, especially Alexandra. She gave us several suggestions on places to eat, things to see, etc. Any time we had a question, she was great.
Overall, yes, Hotel Center does have a noise problem, but for the price and location, you really can't beat it. The rooms are basic but well equipped and very clean.
