“What a super hotel!”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

I booked the hotel not expecting too much having stayed in a “normal” Best Western a few weeks before. The “Premier” version is so much better. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful. The room (641) had a super view of the castle, although I think only rooms 634-641 have such a view due to buildings in the way for other rooms. The room was fairly small, but fine for me. Comfortable bed, fast wifi, lots of hot water…what more could you want? The buffet breakfast was amazing, plenty of choice, and a free a la carte menu if you wanted a proper meal rather than the buffet (I ordered the eggs benedict – very tasty). The spa area was a little odd though, with it being a unisex area, and the showers without curtains overlooking the “relaxing area”. The minibar was very overpriced, but there is a Spar shop downstairs. The location is nearly unbeatable for central Ljubljana. I’d definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 634-641 have super views of the castle. Same rooms on the 5th might have a similar view. Other...

We had a very pleasant stay here on Christmas eve, The room was clean although not as spacious as we like.
The staff is friendly and the bar has a very nice selection of Slovenian wines and very affordable prices.
We had dinner in the restaurant and were very pleased with the quality of the food and service.
This hotel is right in the center of the city, a block from the town square and not far from the train station.

Rooms are comfortable but a bit small for the category of hotel. As others have noted, the concierge service was excellent, the lady went out of her way to suggest different things we could see and do. Gym is quite small but was empty so not a real problem. Car park is a good walk from hotel and not included in price.

Except of WiFi, everything was just excellent. We are a couple that stayed in the hotel for two nights in the beginning of January, 2014. Clean rooms, nice atmosphere, comfortable feeling, great staff, great location, excellent breakfast.
Unfortunately, WiFi was absolutely terrible. Most of time we were unable to connect at all. It’s a pity as all other facilities in the hotel were just fine.

A group of 9 of us stayed at Hotel Slon in mid December 2013 for a short break- the booking process (direct with the hotel) was easy and well managed and from the moment of our arrival we couldn't fault the hotel at all. I was a little apprehensive having stayed at Best Western hotels before but the Slon is independently owned and operated, with service levels that other hotels should aspire to! The location of Hotel Slon is perfect for a short break - right in the city centre near to all attractions, shops etc - it was cold during our visit so the fact that we didn't have far to walk to/from the hotel was very welcome! One of our group celebrated her birthday during our stay - we organised a birthday cake and bottle of champagne, and she received a small gift on check-out - she was welcomed with a 'happy birthday' at breakfast from the staff too. We requested a room with a view of the castle - the weather was quite foggy during our stay but when it did lift the view was good, especially at night when the hotel was lit up. Breakfast at the hotel is a feast - we didn't eat for the rest of the day! We had a 'comfort' room which was perfect for a short break - extremely comfortable bed, and even a pillow menu! The rooms are spotlessly clean and have everything you could need. We had a problem with the safe during our stay, staff were quick to respond and someone came to our room immediately to help. Staff we also quick to help when our taxi to the airport didn't arrive - they phoned the driver who claimed he had a different time booked to what we had agreed and then arranged another taxi which arrived within a couple of minutes. This was our first trip to Ljubljana - it's a fab little city and in December is very festive, we all loved it and had a great time.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor with a view of the castle

This hotel is located in the center within walking distance to all the attraction and restaurants. Generally BW's properties are of 3 to 4* but I was surprise to see all the facilities which matched any 5* hotel. Moreover free breakfast is also of good quality. Staff was very helpful and the internet connectivity was reasonable.

I have now been to this property on two occasions in 2013. It is located in an excellent part of town with the Old Town two blocks away. The rooms are clean and very functional, the breakfast buffet is one of the best I have encountered. The front desk staff are extremely helpful and while a bit pricey, this is the place I would want to stay again and again. Also, the train station is about a half mile away; a safe walk if you like. There is a wonderful pastry/coffee place right off the lobby on one side, and a bar and restaurant on the other side - all very good!
