“Almost perfect business hotel”
Reviewed 7 August 2012

Three days in Ljubljana in June 2012. This hotel was perfect! Great big rooms, wonderful breakfast and perfect service. Only draw back is that is is a little further away from the centre of the city than other hotels, but it is a minor detail. if you want to be treated well, this is where you should stay!

Thank you for a nice review. For the future guests who have not visited Ljubljana before, we would like to comment on the "distance from city centre" so that they are not mislead (100 to 200 meters isn't that much to walk, right :-)
Ljubljana is a relatively small city and everything in the centre is within walking distance. Most people would say that the centrepoint of the city is the Preseren monument and Three bridges. The walking distance of top 10 TripAdvisor hotels from this point are (listed by distance):
- hotel Slon (236 meters)
- City hotel (371 meters)
- Union hotel (401 meters)
- Antiq palace hotel (467 meters)
- CUBO hotel (480 meters)
- Ahotel (2970 meters)
- Mons hotel (5130 meters)

Rooms are very modern and nicely decorated, the bed is very comfortable. The stuff is extremely friendly and helpful. The hotel is in the city center so you can go everywhere by foot. Comparing the other hotels that my fiends stayed this is the best hotel in Ljubljana.

Room Tip: Well the price difference between a single room and double room is not so huge so if you can afford...

Unfortunately, my husband and I were here for less than 24 hours, next time we are back in Ljubljana we would definitely come back to this hotel. The room had a sleek, modern feel kinda like a W hotel but without trying so hard to be cool (we stay in Ws all the time and love them but sometimes they try too hard if that makes any sense), comfortable bed. The room was spacious and so was the bathroom and there were nice L'Occitane toiletries. Reception was very friendly. We left too early in the morning to try breakfast. The location is perfect, just a few minutes walk from the lively old town restaurant/bar/cafe strip.

We stayed at this hotel for a long weekend and found it very pleasant. Our room was huge, modern and clean. The bathroom was particularly nice, with glass walls (but you could still decide to have some privacy by closing a panel), a lovely bath and a nice shower. The location is great and you can reach the river and the center in a few minutes walk. The breakfast was quite good too.

Hotel Cubo ticked every box on my wish list for a hotel: really good location, huge comfortable bed, great shower & bathroom, free wifi throughout the hotel and in the room, fantastic breakfast with a great variety of fresh food (fruit, yoghurt, croissants, pastries, plus freshly cooked food too), plus to top it all off the minibar was free. Then the staff were all friendly and helpful, recommending a good restaurant for example. The hotel has a nice modern design and is a lovely place to stay, will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Ljubljana.

Just returned from a short trip to Slovenia and stayed in the Cubo which is around 12 mins from the main station. I was a bit sceptical cause it is located at a rather busy road but this was an unfounded fear. I got a room in the back, 3rd floor, spatious, specklessly clean, very tasteful modern design, and really quiet. The girls at the reception where extremely friendly and professional - always prepared with good advice. Ljubljana is a cute city, very charming indeed! And the hotel is 5mins from the city centre, ie. Ideally located.

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel in February 2012. The hotel is incredibly small, but the amenities and service are comparable to big five star hotels. The room is well designed with excellent bed. I got a room with a view of the castle. It is a short walk to city center where you can stroll along the river walk and head up to the castle. Minibar and VOIP phone call is included in your rate so feel free to raid the minibar and make few calls home. Aside from excellent breakfast spread, the restaurant has great chef for dinner. I was told that Cubo is well known by the local as top restaurant than as a hotel. You can't go wrong with Hotel Cubo when you are in Ljubljana.
