We spent a three day New Years holiday here and they met all our expectations. The staff was responsive and helpful, but not overly social- that's fine. It is clearly set up for busnies traveler (hence the name- GHU Business), and would be perfect for the working traveller.

The room was great- an 8th floor room with a little balcony overlooking the old city- sweet. big bed, nice workspace/desk, and a massage chair. We decided to eat in the hotel for New years eve dinner as they were having a specail dinner- the buffet reminded us of a crusie ship meal- not bad, but we could have done better in a local restraunt. The breakfast, however, was fantastic.

The best thing about this place in the great location- very close to the main promenade in the old town. We enjoyed it, but next time may seek a little more cosy atmosphere.

We stayed 2 nights in this luxury hotel. The business hotel was connected to the family hotel, we stayed in the business hotel. Big rooms, lots of amenities, great view of the city. Close to the main square. We ate in a wonderful little restaurant behind the hotel in a strip type mall. Stay up high if you are on the mall side as the coffee bars open early and although they are not noisy you can hear them. They were very accomodating getting us a car and driver to take us and stay with us at the caves and then to drive us back to Trieste plus it was reasonably priced. The first clerk wasn't helpful but we waited until he left and asked a young woman clerk how to get to the caves and she was very helpful. Had an incredidle free breakfast that came with the room.

Room Tip: Stay up high on the city side

Perfect size, warm comfortable room (710 on the seventh floor) with large desk space and working area. The design was contemporary – not the most stylish or eye-catching - but adequate.
I had a large window which let in plenty of light and a balcony – it didn’t have the greatest downtown view … but it was fine. (with the overcast weather for the duration of the stay, it didn’t really matter what I looked out on to).
The location is excellent, right downtown and a short walk to all the city centre places of action and interest!
The internet was free for as many devices as you needed. Although performance was a bit erratic at times, overall it was OK, and I was able to do all the work and up/downloading that I needed with no problems.
It’s always nice to have a full size bath and this one was great, complete with cool toiletries, soft towels, bathrobe, slippers, etc.
Bed was comfortable, and there was a nice thick proper quality extra blanket if needed, plus a well-stocked mini-bar and tea / coffee making facilities. There was also a flat widescreen TV which I didn’t even turn on in the three days I was there, and there was a massage chai which I didn’t use!! (personally I would feel a bit of an idiot sitting in my room on a massage chair, but I guess some love it as the receptionist made a big deal out of the fact that it was considered an upgrade to the standard room)
Breakfast was included in the rate, but I didn’t get the chance to check it out, and neither any of the other public facilities.
Basically all the business / office aids you need and good levels of comfort for 115 Euros a night, which I think is great value
Will definitely stay there again.
The only negative comment I have to make is that they could do with some continuity in front-desk staff friendliness and approachability levels! Some were smiley and efficient and others were grumpy and cold!

I stayed here on business for two nights in November 2012.

The hotel is fabulously located, about 2 minutes' walk to the main square and the Three Bridges. No issues with road noise as there isn't much traffic in the old town centre.

Check-in was fine, efficient and very pleasant. The rooms are great - very spacious, all the expected facilities, very wide and comfortable beds and plenty of lighting options. The power showers are super.

I loved the pool on the top floor, and the Vienna-style cafe on the ground floor is nice, if a bit quiet. Breakfast was first-class.

Overall, an excellent stay. Congratulations to the management - highly recommended.

Room Tip: The views aren't great so perhaps avoid too high a floor as there is some noise from the swimmin...

I stayed during a business trip a few nights at Union business.

Hotel is located on excellent location near the old town in the very center of Ljubljana. Hotel has somekind of old school classy spirit.

Rooms are spacious and clean and stylish. Very comfortable. Breakfast was very generous and excellent. There is also good shuttle connection to airport. There is a garage available at the hotel,

Definitely can recommend this for business and couples trips.

We stayed at the Hotel Union Business hotel with the family. Central location, with good parking facilities in the basement. Rooms are relatively spacy and modern. There is a very nice pool at the top floor with saunas. However, the fitness area needs an update, but it's OK for a shorter stay. Good and big breakfast. Dinner at the outdoor summer restaurant was excellent and much better than expected!

Room Tip: If you want quiet rooms, ask to be located opposite to the bell tower.

As the title would say, this is a quite fancy looking hotel, located not near, but in the very city center of Ljubljana, just few steps away from the Three bridges and the old part of the city. The hotel has private garage that they charge €17 a night, which isn't that cheap, but isnt's that bad for few nights of stay. Room and bathroom were very clean, nicely decorated, with a recliner and a balcony facing the back street. There was a nice touch which I haven't seen before in other hotels, a personal welcome message on the big LCD TV. Hotel also offered a very rich breakfast buffet where you can fuel yourself up for the day wandering the streets of Ljubljana.
