“Fair business hotel”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

Despite the simple hall and welcome desk, this hotel is quite good for business purposes.

Located in the city heart, is close to shopping and restaurant area.

Wide rooms, good wifi service and fashion furniture allow people to have rest or to work without pain.

Good breakfast buffet with minute ready omelettes.

Stayed November 2013, travelled on business

Grand old hotel based in great location just yards from the main sites of Ljubljana. Very pleasant common rooms, and reception, staff on front desk are friendly. Other staff (bar/breakfast) a bit surly, barman effectively hid behind TV on the bar to avoid eye contact.

Breakfast is ok, nothing special 'egg station' guy could only do 1 thing at a time (And makes very poor omelettes).

Room was clean and adequate but very very hot, Aircon would not work (im guessing turned off at source).

Room Tip: Ask for one with Aircon!

For me, the hotel's location was convenient about one block from the Triple Bridge. The buffet breakfast was although it was in the neighboring Gran Union Hotel "Executive." Also in the "Executive" property was a very nice bar/lounge which had very good snacks and the Lasko beer.

It didn't bother me too much that many services (breakfast, lounge, and printer - for printing out airline boarding pass) were in the "Executive" section instead of the "Business" section. It did seem strange the availability to print out airline boarding passes was lacking in the "Business" hotel - perhaps the hotel's name is a misnomer as the "Executive" property is more suited for business travelers. To me, this wasn't a major point of angst, but it could irritate other business travelers.

The hotel's desk staff was always very helpful and friendly. As a single traveler, the room was spacious, comfortable, and clean.

Highly recommend this hotel.

We had to make a last minute booking to extend our stay in Ljubljana because I sustained a foot and knee injury (and where we previously stayed did not have any more rooms unfortunately).
We clearly booked at Hotel Central Ljubljana (as per our email) but after hobbling into the hotel, clearly stating I had to go to the hospital, the staff member treated us as if it was out mistake that our booking was for one person (again clearly listed 2 adults in the email) and at another hotel - which was not at all clear to us!
After making a few calls he said we could just walk 200 meters down the to 'business' hotel. We'd now said several times that I had to go to the hospital, and he just brushed off that no we didn't need to catch a taxi down there we could walk.
My left foot was injured and my right knee was injured and you could clearly see them swollen and me struggling to walk. I don't think it's that he didn't understand, it's that he didn't care.
Room at the business hotel was stand hotel room, clean and nice - but rather expensive (obviously we had to book last minute though).
I'm now assuming the hotels are affiliated (even though that was not at all clear to us) and am leaving the review on this hotel seeing as they are so 'clearly' the same.

This hotel was in a perfect location, just yards from the Old Town. We ate in the hotel one evening - food and price were very good.
Large rooms, equipped with everything you need. We had a balcony from which we had views of the castle.
Breakfasts were WONDERFUL - there was a massive choice of hot and cold foods, even Bucks Fizz if you wanted it.
Staff were all helpful, friendly and welcoming.
Parking was 10 Euro per day, but that is to be expected in a town centre.
Highly recommend this hotel !

Clean and very comfortable. Good sleep quality. Air con behind curtain is silly. Spacious room and central to all the touristy bits. Breakfast was fine. Valet parking worked fine. Swimming pool was smaller than it might appear in photos but good to have. Shower screen was not next to shower! Would recommend.

A very good hotel in a very good location. We have no complaints about this hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. There's a big TV with CNN and BBC World and movies if you have time! There's also coffee/tea making facilities and a fridge. We were glad of the air conditioning in the room and the desk and 'comfy chair' were also useful. The wifi in the hotel is free and easy to connect to!
There's a great offer of food at the buffet breakfast and the service is very good. Actually, the service is good throughout the hotel. The rooms are cleaned and stocked up with the bathroom freebies very well every day.
The spa, swimming pool and gym were all good too. Don't expect a massive gym, but there were 5 of us working out in there and it was fine. 1 walking machine, 1.bike, some free weights etc.
The hotel is located within a minutes walk of the triple bridge and lots of restaurants and excellent street entertainers.
Now for the bonus point....A keen- eyed receptionist must have seen my wife's date of birth and realised it was her birthday on our last day. When we returned from breakfast, we were delighted to see a birthday card and home-made chocolate and walnut cake in a gift box on a silver tray on the desk!
