The hotel is super quiet despite being right on the edge of the old town.
All of the staff were extremely helpful, knowledgable and quick to provide any information I needed; everything from info on local buses to a lesson on Slovenian wine from the barman !!
Best Westerns can vary wildly but this is a GREAT one

Absolutely the best situated hotel in Ljubljana. Room was modern and clean. A bit small but ok for two persons. Bathrobe and slippers included.
Service was very friendly.
Breakfast included both buffet and a la carte.

This was our first time in Ljubljana so we wanted a place with a great central location. The Slon was perfectly positioned. There are lots of good reasons to recommend the Slon which include the generally helpful and friendly staff. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, so well done for immaculate housekeeping. There is good air conditioning in the room and you can leave it on to cool the room while you are out and turn the fan down to reduce noise at night. We were not bothered by the fan, in fact it was quite soothing but I note that free ear plugs were provided in the room.The bed was a bit too soft for our liking and the safe was virtually on the floor in the bottom of the wardrobe so we literally had to kneel to use it, a minor irritation. There are in-room tea and coffee facilities with a variety of teas and I liked the door between the bedroom and the corridor - we heard no noise throughout our 4 night stay on the 6th floor where we had a view of the castle and some rooftops above the inevitable back yard with various services. The breakfast buffets are among the best we have had with nice things such as freshly squeezed oranges and a wide range of European hot and cold options including the lovely Slovenian curd and my favourite, millet porridge! A pleasant light airy environment with friendly and helpful breakfast staff. We had dinner on the first night in the ground floor restaurant where David, our waiter was very helpful and informative and the food was good. A nice little touch was that they had noted it was my partner's birthday and the manager had provided a slice of cake for him from their excellent cafe patisserie with a nice note. Reception staff were also approachable and helpful with maps and restaurant bookings etc. We were generally made to feel like individuals and not part of the crowd.The location is superb for walking into the old town and along the river so we felt we had made a great choice for our first time and would certainly consider returning to the Slon.

Room Tip: Try to get an upper floor with a view of the Castle over the rooftops.

Having recently stayed for 3 nights at the hotel Slon, it more than made up for a not too good experience, at the airport. Iced water served in the foyer is a nice, welcoming touch and the breakfasts are very good with a very broad range of food, both hot and cold. Lovely, friendly staff and very central to everywhere. Also, for a 4 star hotel, very tolerant and indeed, welcoming, of dogs. A big plus for us. No downsides really, except that the tv wasn't working first night but that's not a big deal as one doesn't go on holiday to watch tv. A big plus is that there is a tea making facility in the room which many continental hotels simply don't have. Apologies if I've already written a review on this hotel but really the biggest compliment is that we would go back!

Room Tip: We had a lower floor which was very quiet for us so cannot comment on higher rooms. I would say all are of good quality as this is a good quality hotel.

Stayed here for 3 nights during July. The weather was great, so we had a great time in the city. The hotel looks fancy but is not really special. We had a room with view inside, and it's noisy. If you don't have external view, ask at least for the 5th floor. We had a room in the 4th floor and there's no view at all, but we could almost see some of the city. I guess from the 5th floor things change.

Breakfast is OK. People at the reception are nice. Parking price is excesive: 18 euros / day.

Room Tip: Ask for room on 5th floor or more. It's noise inside and I'm not sure outside. Windows let a lot of light inside.
