I had a single night here and didn't use many of the facilities, but enjoyed a warm and fast welcome from the staff, a clean and comfortable room, lovely fluffy towels and a decent breakfast buffet with welcoming staff. The hotel itself is very central for a stay looking around the town.

Hotel Slon has all the basics of a good hotel. Location,standard and so on. But the main difference is a frendly staff who combines a proffesional attitude with a friendliness that sets you at ease. Breakfast was exellent.
Thank you for a lovely stay!

The hotel is accessible from the airport the easiest way, if during the reservation you also reserve the shuttle, 9 EUR one way, and the driver would expect you with your name written at the arrival hall. Half an hour later you are at the hotel. The staff is very efficient and service oriented. The room, as the whole hotel, shows the signs of being a bit tired, as last renovation took place in mid 90ties or so. But it is clean, equipped with everything needed, slippers, kettle with tea and coffee, all necessary amenities. The old part of town with pedestrian's walks is very close. The berakfast is extensive and tasty, sparkling wine included, if anyone interested.
Altogether strongly recommended.

Room Tip: In the room facing the main street the traffic noice can be expected, buses starts at ca 5 am.

This is the hotel to use when staying in Ljubljana. It has all the things you need and it is in a great location in the city center.

My primary reason to strongly recommend Hotel Slon is the staff. There where some mishaps when we where arriving at the hotel. But is was fixed in the most excellent way by the staff. And that is when you can truly see that they care about you as a customer and want you to have a perfect stay.

My second visit to Ljubljana in 9 months, such a safe, friendly place, oozing with wonderful buildings, riverside cafe culture, endless restaurants all priding themselves on fresh natural in.gredients. Didn't hear a single siren or see a policeman during my visit. The hotel is comfortable with immaculately clean rooms, showers etc, a light airy breakfast room, and an informal, bar and restaurant on the groundfloor. Saunas too after a hard say sightseeing or hiking. It seems that courtesy and friendliness run through the veins of Slovenians. Just a 200m walk takes you down from opposite Zara to the famour 3 Bridges by the central square. Walk through the old market place to the furnicular railway that will whisk you up to the Castle in 2 mins for 8 euros, plus an extra 5 euros to climb the tower for a fanstastic 360 panoramic view over the city to the Alps on the Austrian border. Ljubljana is the capital city and university town with a population of about 250,000, but the central tourist area is compact with everything you want to see within a 5-10 min walk. The students give the place a vibrancy and the ideal evening is a riverside dinner as night falls and all the twinkling lights some on, then walking back through the central square where some passing musicians are performing, some of them amazingly good.
The taxi from the airport is about 3-35 euros but be sure to book a reutable company. I previously stayed at the Plaza hotel, very modern with fantastic walk in showers, and where good deals are often available, but its on the outskirts amidst car showrooms and supermarkets, so its a 7 euro taxi into town and out each evening. However their adopted taxi company is superb tel 00386 70 665 718. I sed them again this time and negotiated a 100euro deal for a day at Lake Bled, where he ferried us to the castle, then down around Bled where we took a carriage ride around the lake, and then a lovely lakeside lunch at a place 200m down to the lake and to the right from where the carriages wait. Again great food and their famous cakes. Must be one of the most scenic places in Europe. The nearest comparison I can make for the town is like a smaller Bruges.

Outstanding next time I'll take un the boat rip in the underground caves.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel, fine location just a few minutes walk to city center, it's close the the most interesting things in the city.
The staff is very kind, professional and efficient, from the front desk thru the cleaning.
The restaurant provides excellent meals (what a great Chef they have) from fish to different kinds of meat. I'd strongly recommend the Tuscan Style Turkey it was fantastic, the Sea Bass was excellent as well. Had dinner at the hotel most of my evenings and if going back I'd do the same.
It's the hotel I'd recommend to my friends and family if visiting Ljubljana.

Dear Guest!

Thank you so much for taking the time and write such a lovely review.

I agree with you, our location is really one of the best and it is very charming to be in Ljubljana these days. Ljubljana is actually celebrating 2000 years of Roman city called Emona, the earliest known name of the present Ljubljana, and there are a lot of vibrant events and city tours going on till the end of this year.

Thank you also for your compliments to our front desk and housekeeping which we will pass on to them.

We are very glad to read that you enjoyed the food in our Restaurant & Lounge Slon, which was awarded in 2012 with the Quality Sign by the Ljubljana Tourist Board. We are very proud on our Head Chef Mr Joze Erjavec, who is very creative young Chef and is setting new limits in Slovenian cuisine.

We are looking forward to welcome you back soon and wishing you nice experiences on your future travels.

Best regards,

Zeljko Vrhovac
