Reviewed 11 September 2012

The location is a big advantage. The hotel is not exactly in the city centre, however it is very close to it. Ljubliana is a very small city and everything is within 5 mins walking distance. If you book a room at a budget price, it is a fantastic value. I don't know about other rooms, but we had booked a superior room (castle view) and it was comfortable. Overall a very clean and renovated hotel, with modern interior and very friendly and helpful staff.

The breakfast could have been better. The parking is a little expensive (14 Euros per night), but it is very convenient to have your car so close to the hotel! Overall, I don't know about other Slovenian hotels, but I wouldn't rate this hotel as a 5 star, compared to 5star hotels of other european capitals. It is a very good 4 star hotel!

Fantastic location 10mins walk from the historic centre of the city and main shopping/tourist area. Also just behind the hotel is a lovely park (Tivoli I think) thats really nice to have a stroll around, there was an excellent outdoor national geographic picture gallery whilst we were there.

In terms of the hotel itself the standard double room was on the small side and had two single beds pushed together (dont know if the is a Slovenian thing as the next hotel we stayed in it was the same). The rooms were well appointed and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was rather on the small side with a bath that I couldn't fit in and I'm only 5'9'' and 11 stone. Despite this our stay was very comfortable and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The breakfast was fantastic with an excellent selection of hot and cold food.

Overall I would recommend this hotel although maybe not if you were paying full price! (We got a good last minute deal)

We spent 3 nights in this hotel and we were very pleased with the staff and food quality at breakfast. It is very close to almost all sights in Ljubljana, and within few minutes you can reach all the hot spots in Ljubljana. When you have your car parked in a garage next to Casino, you do not need to worry about anything.
The view from our room was nice and we could see and castle on the hill (I believe it was 6th floor).
Very pleasant experience....

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views

We completed out Balkan tour at the Lev, expecting 5star services and accommodation. We were let down.

The rooms were too small and the air conditioning made an irritating noise that kept you awake. We needed it on as the temp was very high outside.

The reservation team originally told us that we could take a taxi from the train station upon our arrival to the city but alas we could not! the taxis all were unwilling to make a short journey to the Lev contrary to what we were told on booking. after walking around down town for 10-15 minutes we finally reach the hotel to be told by the reception team that the local taxi drivers are awful and never take people to the hotel from the station. This was contradictory from what their colleague said upon booking. We were unimpressed to say the least.

The next evening after taking cocktails and drinks in the bar area my party and I left for a night out in the city after paying in cash for the drinks at the bar cash register. We were chased down the road by one of the bar staff to be asked whether we had paid. How embarrassing.
I returned to the hotel and spoke with an abrupt hotel general manager who obviously struggles with dealing with anything more stressful than a simple request for roomservice.

A real disappointing end to a trip around the Balkans.

Room Tip: Ask whether you will be able to move in it whilst there is another person in there with you!

We stayed in the Lev hotel (meaning Lion) as our last night in Slovenia. It was amazing. from the moment we stepped in we were welcommed by the reception staff, upgraded to a suite were escorted to a lovely, huge room which was clean and comfortable. the hotel about 5 minutes walk from the main shopping street and 10 minutes walk to the river and lovely old town. Parking is availble at the hotel at a price of 9/14 Euro (above/ below ground) and it is an excellent solution for coming to Ljubliana with a vehicle.
we highly recomend this hotel for staying in Ljubliana.

My family and I stayed at Hotel Lev for 2 nights and really enjoyed our experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly, always willing to accommodate you. Asmid (I think was his name) was the manager we chatted w/a lot at breakfast and was very sweet. It's about a 10 min. walk to the center of town. I highly recommend the Lolita bakery to anyone, but especially if you are Gluten Free (Flourless choc. cake!) It's right in the main square on Cankarjevonabrezje. Our room was great and spacious, two tvs (if they aren't working you need to unplug and plug back in - trick we learned by the staff helping), two phones, huge bathroom. There was no pool, although you could use a pool of their sister hotels, but we didn't get around to it. Great place and highly recommend it to any traveler!
