“Second best location, good breakfast, need renovation soon.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2012

+ Clean hotel in the second best location (after Grand Union which is in the same block. Lev hotel is too far away). From this hotel the old town, sights, restaurants, cafes, shops are in your foot steps
+ Staff in breakfast room and all the maids were wonderful.
+ Good buffet breakfast with all basic items you expect to have. Cava and strawberries too.
+ Room cleaning was excellent.
+ Book deluxe room. Good bedlinen, coffee maker, bathrobes, slippers, daily complimentary still water in room etc.

- Reception gave us standard room 22m2 (square meters) first. We complained right away and got it changed.
- Deluxe room is 32m2 with 200x220 bed and deluxe room with additional 160x220 bed is 45m2. Booking.com should mention this more clearly. You won't get 45m2 room with one king bed.
- Men in the reception were rude sitting in their leather armchairs. Don´t waste your time with them, you get all the information you need from tourist info in the old town, they are very helpful and service minded there.
- Hotel needs renovation in near future. This is an issue in almost all hotels in Ljubljana.
- Hotel is partly renovated in 90´s.
- Smell of heating devices in hallways and in bathroom.
- Minibar too expensive in room.
- hot lifts and waiting time for a lift. We were at 5th floor.
- airconditioning device only recycles air in room, you have to keep small hatches open to get fresh air from outside the street.

Room Tip: Book deluxe room and pamper yourself a little bit more. A/C has less noise when you set it for 1. Ke...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Slon. The room was nice, lovely bed and fine sheets. Always enjoy having tea/coffee making facilities in my room. Breakfast had lots of variety and the location is a 5 min walk to the river and cafes.

I have stayed in many hotels in Ljublana at roughly the same budget and can rate this as the one with the best room (except noisy aircon - though it was efficient as 33 degrees outside) and best breakfast (really good selection of fresh food) that I have tried so far. Parking was a bargain at 18 euros for jockey service and my clients x 2 were also extremely happy with their rooms. Shall return. (I am normally put off by the Best Western brand because in the UK I think it is a sign of mediocrity. - not so the Premier brand here it would seem - much more like a US Best Western) Wi-fi was also fine for VPN emails.

Room Tip: Ask for a 6th floor room with a view of the castle

One of the best located hotels in downtown Ljubljana, just at the entrance of the pedestrian area. Staff is friendly, breakfast room is bright and with plenty choice. Also recommendable for a sunday brunch.
Rooms are a little small and a bit out of fashion. Price/value is good.
When staying at Slon, don't forget to check out the opposite located Neboticnik (skyscraper) tower with roof terras offering view on the city.

Slovenia is a little diamond. This country has everything which are necessery to "beeing well". Sea side, high mountains, hidden lakes, caves, old history and very-very friendly people. Ljubjana is in the centre of the country ,a nice small city with a lot of cultural events and good places to eat drink, or relax. Premier Hotel Slon is located in the heart of the city walking distance from the most important places and monuments. The rooms are comfertables, and the breakfast is fantastic. I can recomend to everybody to spent a few days in this little but very nice country. Travel by car, or rent one, and you can reach the most important places in one our drive.

I stopped booking anything Best Western some years ago, after several disappointments. This hotel was booked on my behalf. It was therefore a pleasant surprise to find an up market hotel (they have a framed copy of Bill Clinton's thank you letter!) with nice rooms, and all the facilities you would expect of a good city centre hotel.
If you want a room where you can gaze at the castle, this isn't for you. However, if you want something which is very conveniently situated, decent breakfast, and a comfortable and quiet room, this will do the job.

This is a business-oriented hotel on Ljubljana's main drag. It's also got easy access to the Old Town, less than 5 min. away. Room was spacious and clean, although carpet was starting to fray--it's obvious this place gets a lot of traffic. Serves a large buffet breakfast with lots of variety. Because of its location, noise can be a bit of an issue. Ljubljana has a large university population and even on the 5th floor, we could sometimes hear student revelers at night. That was a small inconvenience for the location. Rates are a bit on the high side, but that seems to be true of Ljubljana in general--the place is experiencing a tourism and business boom, and hotel availability hasn't quite caught up with that.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to avoid street noise.
