Reviewed 8 March 2014

I travel to Ljubljana 3-4 times a year and have stayed at the Grand Hotel (Business or Executive.....attached buildings.....same staff) every time. While I have visited other hotels to see their accommodations, none come close to the Grand Hotel for size of room, location and attitude of staff. I have never had a bad experience at the Grand Hotel and the staff goes so far out of their way to make sure you are comfortable. And the location.....right in the middle of the Old Town area and 100 yards from the three bridges....it doesn't get any better.

Room Tip: If you stay at Executive side, I love room 922 or 822. Wonderful view of castle and a huge balcony...

I went to Ljubljana on my own for work. I stayed here just under a week and it never got old. The hotel and its staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing. The hotel is just steps away from the heart of Ljubljana and also near the main street if you want to catch a bus. I was lucky enough to be there for a wine tasting festival at the local square, and also lucky enough to have time outside of my work to enjoy the local cafes. The hotel is also within walking distance of a few department stores and a convenience/market.

The only thing that I did not realize when booking my room was that this hotel and the associated Executive Grand Hotel are not one in the same. The Executive's interior looked to be much more beautiful. If the price is similar or not a concern, try the Executive. I will the next I travel there. (I actually traveled there in November 2012).

The Grand Union Business Hotel is really just the 'new' wing of the Grand Union Hotel in Ljubljana - the two are the same building, but oddly each shows up as a separate listing on booking / review sites.

The building is probably about 40 years old from look of architecture, and you get good size rooms that are remarkably quiet. Plumbing is pretty good, but lighting a bit dated in my room at least (an example of the lots of switches on headboard of bed style, but I never worked out how to turn on some of the lights ... such as bedside reading lights). TV has few channels and so-so picture quality. Best bring a book with you I think.

Partly because of the 'shared' nature of the hotel, breakfast is served in a room in the 'other' hotel - which requires a walk around the edge of the building in a plastic enclosed walk-way. Weird. But the food served is good - pretty wide variety and well prepared.

Didn't try the restaurants, or the leisure facilities.

Hotel is very close to heart of Ljubljana, and so most of the places you might need to get to are a short walk away. Not so expensive, and good for purpose I think.

General good hotel with great conditions for meetings. The hotel is very large and the meeting room can accommodate 250 people. Central location is a plus and it is quite close to some good restaurants and bars... Food is good and service very good.

The hotel surprised me very much.
The location is good, in the city center and just 2 minutes walking distance from the heart of the old city.
Rooms are big (altough maybe they need to be a little bit renovated...)
Extra: beds and pillows are very comfortable.
Personal of the hotel is very nice and always at disposal.
FANTASTIC breakfast buffet in the morning - big choice of sweet and salted things
I suggest this hotel for business stay in Ljubljana

Don't be put off by the somewhat grim exterior; the hotel is extremely comfortable, relatively stylish and contemporary inside. It's not exactly got stacks of character, but unless you're looking for a romantic hideaway I can't imagine many people objecting to that.

Room sizes are generous, beds are great, breakfast is excellent and so is the service. The icing on the cake is the location: it's literally a two minute walk to the Three Bridges in the centre of the old town.

Summary: a perfect base for almost any type of trip to the Slovenian capital.

I stayed in the Grand Hotel Union-Business while on a business trip to Ljubljana. The hotel is a great choice, located less than 5minutes walk from the historical centre. Rooms are very spacious and very well equipped and decorated. All the necessary amenities that will make you feel comfortable and also allow you to work are available. The level of cleanliness is also very good. I had no noise problems but some colleagues who were staying close to the elevators complained about noise during the night. Breakfast was very nice with a great variety of products. The staff is generally efficient but they don't seem very friendly or happy with their jobs. Finally, this hotel, as a part of a complex that also includes the Grand Hotel Union-Executive, is a good choice for business meetings but seems like a labyrinth with long corridors, up and down stairs etc.
