Hotel Cubo

Reviewed 24 June 2012

El Cubo is a rare find. In a city full of history it outstands as a modern, yet perfectly integrated, boutique hotel. Ljubljana is a wonderful city which can be walked around. It is great to come back, after a long day, to a modern and comfortable room. We also tried the restaurant, excellent and at an accssesible price and the breakfast (included in the room rate)

Room Tip: Our room was at the back and still very sunny

Throughout our many years of traveling, staying at some wonderful hotels, the CUBO now heads the list for the most gracious, accommodating service. . The staff, superbly managed by Sandi Kovacevic, anticipated services for things we didn't realize we needed, i.e, taking the time to print out specific Mapquest directions for our side trip to Lake Bled, and again when we were leaving town for our next destination.The mini-bar choices were ample, free of charge and replenished daily. The decor is contemporary, comfortable elegance. The breakfast buffet is sumptuous, with additional made to order choices, served promptly and with a smile. Location is close enough to the center of town to easily access the sights without having the noise and crowds to disrupt the hip vibe of the CUBO. We wish there could be a CUBO, with Sandi and staff in every city we visit!

Room Tip: Rooms are well insulated; even with ours adjacent to the elevator we heard to no noise!

Our six nights at the CUBO Hotel were not long enough. We left with great regret. The accomodations are modern and sophisticated. Location is close to the old city. The staff is superb at the desk and at the restaurant, where the food, especially breakfast, is quite good. Very friendly, the staff seemed pleased to respond to all needs whether getting a suitcase fixed or mailing a parcel. When our departing flight required our leaving the hotel at 6:00 a.m., they seemed more concerned about our missing breakfast at the restaurant that had not yet opened than we were, and prepared an excellent picnic basket for us to take. We look forward to returning.

Hotel Cubo is not exactly in the old city, but it is just a few minutes walk from the old city. It is a very nice hotel, with a very helpful staff. We found the coloration of the hotel soothing and congenial and particularly liked the design of the bathroom in our room, a cube of glass that could be closed off for privacy, if necessary, This very well-designed hotel goes out of their way with their breakfast which is very asthetically arranged. One design change we would suggest is to get rid of the heavy curtains in the rooms, as they are out of sync with the rest of the design. The bar also, which is in the lobby, is not well-situated. We enjoyed our stay here. Within ten minutes, you can walk to all the restaurants and cafes on the river, the happening part of town.

I recently stayed at Hotel Cubo for 22 nights. That length of stay is truly a test of a hotel. From top to bottom, the hotel staff is fantastic, with no request being too big or small. The rooms are comfortable and clean, the food is first rate, and the location is great for anywhere you need to go in Ljubljana.

Hotel Cubo is a nice place to come home to, at the end of very busy work days. I can only imagine how relaxing it would be as part of a vacation stay.

Room Tip: Maybe ask for a room that has a view of the castle.

This is a gem of a hotel and one of the best during my 16-day Europe trip. The rooms are huge and classy, with top rate toiletries, bedding and linen. I like the transparent shower cubicle at one end of the bedroom, although for friends sharing a room this may pose a privacy issue. Also like the long table at one wall which gives me a lot of space to put my iPad, books etc. The bed, pillows and quilt are extremely comfortable. The flat screen TV offers more than 100 channels. Breakfast was great in terms of selection and freshness. The bar area at the lobby is pretty cool as it looks out on the main street. My only complaint is that water flowed out of the shower when I was using it, so one have to be careful. The front desk was business like; a smile would have been nice. Ljubljana wasn't that interesting but this hotel made up for it.
