“Remarquable hotel”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

I stayed one night in this hotel in September 2011 and I find all the positive reviews absolutely justified. The staff of the hotel is extremely helpful and the hotel very well located, a few minutes away from the pedestrian area and the nice bridges of Ljubljana. My room was on the back of the hotel (very quiet and a nice view on the city and the Castle). On top of that, the breakfast is excellent.

Agree with all the favourable reviews. This hotel did not disappoint. Beds and bedding very good indeed. Excellent location for both the old town and the train station (and shopping). Restaurant not bad either, though it may lack the atmosphere of some of the riverside restaurants. Just one comment the hotel management may wish to address: while the Illy coffee made for you and delivered to your table with a friendly smile is delicious, getting a refill of this or the ordinary Cona stuff when your table is way down the other end of the room is not easy. We would have preferred to have a waiter/ress to wander round giving refills of Cona as necessary, which is common elsewhere in this class of hotel. It seems churlish to find fault here when everything else was so good, but for that very reason I am compelled to mention it. It was a pity such a small thing impacted on an otherwise faultless experience.

Room Tip: Rooms on Slovenske Cesta are liable to have the most traffic noise.

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in during our travels in Croatia-Slovenia. The room, although not huge was sufficiently large for our 2 big bags, was well airconditioned ( hot weather 34C so it was much needed),small but well provisioned en suite with king size fluffy white towels a nice bonus and lots of thoughful toiletries, a mini fridge and free wifi. Our booking included breakfast which offered a terrific variety -eggs boiled, omelette, lots of cheeses, fresh breads, rolls and croissants, good variery of fresh fruits and yoghurts, cereals. Staff were exteremely helpful and the hotel was a 5 minute walk from the old city and tourist office but a 15 minute walk from the train/ bus station. Be aware that taxis from there charge inflated prices but when ordered through the hotel cost less than half! Loved the whole ambience and would recommend this as one of the best stays we have had this year

located in the heart of the city. exactly at the happening place. the economy or the lowest priced rooms are pretty small, particularly the ones they call king bed rooms. it is not actually king bed, it is more or less a queen. the only minus point is the size of the rooms. all amenities are provided in the rooms a traveller may need. very neat and clean rooms as well as the bathrooms. well maintained furnishings in the rooms. crispy, neat linen. breakfast is okay. but the breakfast room carries the dirtiest carpet one can ever come across.
staff is extremely helpful. car parking is 500 mtrs away. charges are 18 euros per night.
valet service available. need to inform them 20 minutes before you need your car.
because of its location and comfort will definitely choose this place again.

Spent 2 nights at the Slon in August 2011. For a city business hotel, this was a nice surprise. Perfect location for tourists. It is located about 10-15 minutes walk from the bus/train stations.

We asked for a quiet room away from the main street and got a room on the 6th floor facing the courtyard/parking with a view of the Castle. Breakfast was excellent with plenty of choices and Illy coffee. WiFi functioned properly. The pillow selection was great.

Definitely recommended.

Slon is in the middle of Ljubljana action.
You will also enjoy huge breakfast buffet.
Service is very nice.
Only the rooms... They have seen their good times already long ago and need soem refresh. Also no wifi in the rooms...
A little overpriced, even as the only chain hotel in Ljubljana.
