Hotel Slon is definitely one of the best addresses in Ljubljana. Very beautiful and clean rooms, a very good kitchen and the staff is doing everything to make their guests content.

Was really happy with cleanliness and personnel. There is a carpark and the hotel is only about 500 meters from the city centre.

The Hotel Slon is a great base for a city break in Ljubljana. Although it's not in the quaintest part of the city - the old town - it's just a few minutes walk away down pedestrianised streets. The hotel is on one of the city's key roads so the views aren't up to much but we were not kept awake by street noise. The room was clean and comfortable although the heating was a little too keen for our liking. The hotel itself is fairly modern in a retro way and staff were welcoming and efficient. It has a popular bar and there's an excellent cafe (Zvezda) on the ground floor with stunning cakes. The hotel can arrange a bus transfer to the airport although this is at fixed times so we asked them to fix a taxi for us.

Breakfast was a typical buffet affair but at the weekend the staff weren't good at topping up the hot and cold dishes so choice was sometimes limited.

Ljubljana, being a small city, is easy to walk around (even with heavy snow around) and there aren't a huge number of things to do but it makes a pleasant, unhurried break. On top of that, don't wait to do any shopping until Saturday afternoons or Sundays because few if any shops are open! We found some excellent restaurants, including Sokol and Julija, and some great bars.

We stayed for two nights in a Deluxe Room (Junior suite) as there was an offer to upgrade for EUR 15.

Perfect location, as mentioned by many other reviewers the 'city' is tiny but the hotel is very conveniently located in the centre.

Our room did not have any view to speak of and it did seem a little out-dated, a simple face light to make it more contemporary would have made a huge difference, but the room was clean and warm so no real complaints there. The room was located next to the maid cupboard so you could hear them talking and shuffling about in the lounge area but there was a door you could close between the lounge and doorway which was effective in keeping the noise down. I found the bed to be extremely comfortable and always had a good nights sleep.

Checking in and out was polite and efficient as you would expect. I liked that they gave the next day's weather report with the turn down service.

The inclusive buffet breakfast was good but nothing to write home about, a decent selection none the less so I was happy.

Overall, I was happy with my stay and would recommend to others.

Usually then I work abroad the selection of hotel is crucial. This time i considered many other options but luckily decided to take this one. There was nothing really wrong with this place- maybe only some noise from the street. It is situated 5minutes walk from everything in central Ljubljana. Staff was extremely helpful with everything. As there was four of us everybody in different rooms, i can say that rooms are not very similar I had double bed and a shower, one collegue had twin bed and a bath, other had room half a size of mine but still a bath.

Booked the hotel through a hotel broker web site and for a centrally located hotel in the perfect location of the city, including breakfast and tax, I thought it was good value. Unfortunately we had to pay 18 Euros to park our car per day but parking is non existent in Ljubljana and its a European city so I expect to pay.

We booked a 'deluxe' room so when checking the web site you will get an idea from our photo how large the room is. The bed and pillows were very, very comfortable. There is a pillow menu but we didn't need to use it. The bathroom was large along with the room. It was quiet and all of the staff were friendly.

The location is perfect. You walk out the door and turn left to the pedestrian lane and the historic area of Ljubljana and the river. It is extremely convenient.

The breakfast is noted in one of the guidebooks that it is the best in the city and I believe it. The staff are courteous, professional and take care of the buffet re-filling items as needed. The selection was wonderful, the room was clean and everything was presented very well.

Really enjoyed the complimentary wireless internet. I wish more hotels offered this service free. Would highly recommend this hotel.
