“Stylish & Modern Boutique Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 December 2013

I stayed for 3 nights with my family of 4. We were impressed by how modern and stylish the hotel was and loved the gratis mini-bar. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. The cable TV had many English channels including HBO and sports which is exceptional amongst the hotels I encountered during 3 weeks in Europe. The staff were friendly and helpful. Location is very good -it only takes 5-10 minutes to walk to all the sights in Ljubljana. It's true that there is a empty lot opposite but I understand that a luxury condo is being built there so it shouldn't be a problem for long.

First time to Slovenia and we were looked after so well by the lovely staff here. Had to change our booking last minute and the reception staff were fantastic and sorted everything over email.
On arrival we were greeted with a warm smile and provided with lots of information.

Location is perfect as it's walking distance to old town and the castle. Rooms are beautiful. Great breakfast served with a smile.

Have stayed at the Cubo many times in the last 2 years. An excellent boutique hotel in the heart of Ljubljana. Really nice rooms, excellent service and good restaurant. Cannot be compared to other hotels in LJU - clearly outstanding. My clear recommendation !

i just completed a wonderful first trip to Ljulbjana and stayed at the Hotel Cubo. I took the night train in from Munich and was delighted to see that they let me into my room at 7 am. That allowed me to sleep a little more and then really enjoy the city.

The breakfasts are wonderful with an assortment of rolls, spreads, cheeses, yogurts, meats, veggies and juices. They will also make you some eggs. The rooms are really sharp and modern. The design is consistent throughout the hotel with a number of recurring motifs, lampshades in a ball made of silk cocoons, metal sculptures and fixtures and light wood. The bathroom wall is glass, but you can move a panel for privacy if you want it. Square toilets are a little odd but interesting. The service was outstanding and everyone tried very hard to ensure everything was right. The hotel is easy walking distance to the Old Town and Tivoli garden. The only drawback is that the lot across the street is vacant so the view is not as nice as it could be. Highly recommended.

This hotel was the highlight of a month in Europe. Among the many unique aesthetic features were the lampshades made from empty silk cocoons, the sleek gray bathrooms separated by glass from the bedroom and the healthy phalaenopsis on the counter. Gray in different textures with purple and lime accents was sophisticated and restful. The free mini bar was a great addition to the delicious breakfasts, which featured many local products. All of the young staff members were eager that we feel welcome and see the best of Slovenia, and I'm sure several would have taken us to their home villages had we asked.

Seeing hundreds hotels round the globe I was looking forward to be in the best hotel in the city,
based on Tripadvisor.

We came in short after 22,00, no food was possible. But the staff was nice and helpful and show us the closest "food source".

Room was nice modern and clean.
I had a room facing interior courtyard, so no noise from outside. The A/C = heating was very noisy. It was better to switched it off accepting lower temperature.

The breakfast should be from 6,30. I came 6,35 and nothing was prepared there.
Again, nice and helpful staff apologised and provided at least tea and later on some eggs. The quite good morning buffet table was fully complete at 7,15.

Generally speaking, if these hiccups are fixed, the hotel will be above average according western european feeling.

Room Tip: Choose a room facing interior courtyard.

Unfortunately, it happens from time to time and we are no exception. We had technical problems in the kitchen that have started on the night of your arrival. This was the reason why hotel restaurant closed early. We actually managed to have the repairs done very quickly but not soon enough to start breakfast service when it normally starts.
Please accept our sincere appologies for all the inconvenience caused. We hope you will be our guest again in the future and give us an opportunity to prove that you just had bad luck.

The hotel is centrally located making it perfect for exploring Ljubljana. The room was beautifully decorated and appointed. The bed and particularly the bed linen were excellent making for a good sleep.
Above all the service was exceptional. Always friendly but very efficient. The answer to any question seemed to be "of course" and it was.
On the main road we saw everything happening from the marathon which was on when we stayed to protest marches.
Ljubljana feels a very safe place and lovely to walk around at any time with the majority of the centre being pedestrian only.
We were very lucky to pay only 120 euros per night which made it exceptional value and included a free mini bar.
