“Nice Hotel in Perfect Location”
Reviewed 26 October 2013 via mobile

Cozy and clean rooms in a perfect location to explore the heart of Ljubljana. Breakfast is excellent!! Rooms are a bit small but adequate. Staff nice too. No AC and the rooms were hot in Oct on the 5th floor. Opened the window but then noisy.

Stayed October 2013, travelled with friends

The room was big, the beds and pillows were super, the breakfast had plenty of choice. Personnel was friendly and helpful. Very central location, ideal for those who want to walk downtown. 3 minutes away from the main square. Although the hotel does not have a garage, they have a deal with a local garage. They will bring your car in and out of the garage. This service costs 18 €/day, which can be an inconvenient if you have a long stay.

The Beds where really comfy and the feel of the place had a really nice atmosphere. The breakfast buffet in the morning also had a good selection. I would definitely recommend it and the location is also fantastically located.

Spent a weekend at the Slon in July 2013 and although it was under some lobby renovation, I found the hotel to be an ideal place to be in relationship to the sites to see. The concierge was delightful and had many suggestions and helpful hints. She is an asset to the property. A rental car was arranged with the hotel and that transaction was very smooth. Easy pickup and return at the hotel. The room I "ordered" was small however it was clean and adequate for my purpose. When traveling I do not spend a lot of time in hotel rooms therefore size is not so important to me. It was quiet for sleeping and clean and that is what mattered to me. Breakfast was plenty and selection good. The location was bright and cheerful and a nice start to the day. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice stay in Ljubljana.

I had a very comfortable stay at Hotel Slon, and loved it there. I had a very quiet corner room with no noise at all, and the bed was an American style king size bed and super comfy with quality sheets. The room was spacious and well equipped, with a roomy bathroom and a handy Nescafe machine. The decor wasn't super trendy or gorgeous, but I wouldn't call it dated or unattractive by any means either, and I liked having wooden floors in the rooms. There was a large jacuzzi tub, but no shower stall (you had to shower in the tub.)

There were nice luxury touches like L'Occitane bath products (which they were very generous about refilling) and nightly chocolates on our bed and a sleep mist you could use.

The breakfast buffet was indeed huge and delicious with great variety, including hot foods and fresh fruit and more.

The restaurant attached to the hotel is actually very nice as well with excellent service and tasty dishes.

My only quibble was the shuttle service they use to go to the airport is actually a Shared shuttle service, which wasn't clear upon booking, so make sure you have plenty of time before you go to the airport because there may be other pickups.

The location is perfect, just a block from the main downtown area and the Triple Bridge. Ljubljana is really a hidden gem of Europe, gorgeous setting and great food! I'd recommend this as a great place to stay for anyone visiting.

Great location right in the heart of the city! Rooms are a little dated, but very comfortable bed and the ability to select your specific pillow preference. The hotel had turned off the air conditioning (1 week of Oct) so it was quite warm in our room. When we asked the front desk about the air there answer was to open the window. It never got to a comfortable temperature. Our room had a full tub with a half shower divider with isn’t our favorite since it’s hard to keep the water from soaking the rest of the bathroom. Breakfast was the best spread we have ever seen at a hotel. Our table had a menu with additional items available that ended up being included. We all ordered waffles only to discover the waffle maker wasn’t working so our waiter ordered chocolate soufflés for us instead. They were some of the best soufflés we had ever had.

I stayed at the Slon 7x for business reasons.

General impression
The glory of old days is still visible, but those days are definitely long gone. The hotel Slon is centrally located which is, besides the absolutely impressive breakfast, it's main benefit.

Corridors are long and plastered with thick carpets that make the wheels on your suitcase useless and breathing difficult. Unfortunately, none of the staff will ever offer to give you a hand, no matter how much you are struggling. Complaining is the only way to get some kind of attention.

Location
super central, can t get it better. walking distance to everywhere in the centre.

Cleanliness
very good

Bathroom
rather vintage but good-sized, and clean. as far as I can tell each one of them has windows.

Bed/Pillows
Beds are comfortable, especially in the higher category rooms. Pillow menu available.

Breakfast
Impressive. Never have seen a bigger variety. you can even get fresh smoothies made upon order. Organic offering, many different kinds of cereal, breads, cheeses, etc. Several hot dishes, fresh juices, lose, real teas - you will not need lunch after this.


Noise level
Windows need replacing - in the standard rooms you will always hear outside noise. Comfort rooms are to the backyard and hence more silent. However, the hotel's air conditioning is an issue because it's really loud and you can hear it if you switch your room's AC off.


Fitness room/Spa
small fitness room with basic equipment. sufficient. spa area is even smaller and basic, but also sufficient for basic needs (sauna, steam room). clean.

MISC
Room temperature can be rather high during summer.
Bonus points are not always instantly credited.
great toiletries in superior and plus category (l'occitane)

I feel the prices for the offer are too expensive, especially because standard rooms are hot, sticky and loud. Bonuses are the location and breakfast.

Room Tip: book comfort or even higher category
