Reviewed 8 August 2014

Having mixed feeling about the stay

Pros:
+ located in the centre
+ good breakfast buffet
+ good and free wifi
+ mainly friendly staff

Cons:
- Rooms a little outdated
- yucky bedside carpets and throw pillows
- room-service that started at 8 to constantly knock at your door
- small things like missing do-not-disturb-hanger

If you get a room-rate below 90€ it is OK - I would not spend more

I stayed two nights at this hotel together with my girlfriend. It is really in the heart of the city near to everything. The hotel has a calm fitness room and a clean and modern sauna department.

The room was clean and the staff very friendly.

The hotel is easy to find and has also a good corner cafe/bar/restaurant. Staff in the reception was service minded and helpful.

A high standard Best Western hotel.
Reception staff very friendly allocated different room on lower floor at our request with no problem.
Room was comfortable, clean, nice touches but bathroom could have been larger.

Location was superb, only a few minutes to the triple bridge.

Breakfast could of been better, hot food got cold quickly as the did the coffee.

Quite a business hotel for conferences in the city or even in the hotel.

Would highly recommend this hotel for visitors to the lovely city of Ljubljana.

Room Tip: Don't be afraid to ask for a room on a lower floor, standard did not appear to be compromised in...

We were so delighted when we arrived at our hotel. The location is outstanding. All you have to do is step out the door and you're right in the centre of beautiful Ljubljana. The staff were excellent - really friendly and very helpful and they all had very good English. The rooms were great - we were in a Deluxe room which had plenty of space and a very comfy, very large bed. The breakfast was also very good. A large buffet with plenty of things to choose from. You could also order specific dishes off the menu. There were lots of little extra touches that made our stay very enjoyable. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel.

Have just returned from a short break from Ljubljana. This is a beautiful city and well worth a visit. The Best Western Slon Hotel was the perfect base. Ideal to access the historic part of the city and public transport links to places such as Lake Bled (must be seen, would even recommend an over night stay) The hotel is very clean and comfortable,breakfasts are fabulous and the staff really helpful and polite.I would definitely stay here again :-)

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
