I came to this hotel for two nights. I think is very nice and good hotel. I book this hotel because they have pool. But I was very disappointed because pool is so cold you can't swim in there. I had 7 month old baby and couldn't go swimming with her. But that is not all. They nicely gave me travel cod in room. I couldn't understand why my baby doesn't want to sleep there. On our check out I notice that the cod was broken and my baby head was in hole. I complain to reception and all they say we will reported a and someone will fix it so that someone else will have no problem!!!!???????? Sorry for inconvenience.
I enjoyed staying there but with one little sentence someone can put you off to book again.

This historic property has been renovated to a high standard and is really 2 hotels in one. Best to make sure you stay in the original building. Very well placed for walking around the car free centre, literally 2 minutes to the river. Excellent large modern stylish bedroom, big bed, good quality linen. Extensive breakfast offer. Underground car park. Interesting history. All round good service and facilities.

Room Tip: Go for a mini suite. High floor.

I stayed almost 3 weeks at this hotel recently and want to share how helpful everyone was that worked there. From the front desk staff (Dejan, Blaz, Emir, Miran and more) and the bellmen (Domen, Leo, Nate) to my sales contact for the group (Ursa!), I always felt supported with every thing I needed to get done for my job.

My group and I were there to shoot a television commercial for the American market and our hours are 24/7. Yet, there was always someone at the front desk willing and able to help me. When I inquired about possibly shooting at the hotel, the staff was gracious and showed me different options of locations, including the roof. That is when my director saw Room 600... Ursa had already upgraded him to a suite at the same rate as the rest of my crew in standard rooms. Room 600 was twice as much but she was able to accommodate us at the same rate, making my director so very happy. And you must know that a happy director can make the job so much better!

I really enjoyed my time at the hotel, even though I was constantly working.

The only think I didn't like was the food. The breakfast buffet had a wonderful selection, but I had it 17 times... No one else can complain from my crew with all of the different choices it offered. The room service menu needs more variety but there are so many nearby restaurant choices, it should be fine for everyone except people working 24/7 and unable to get away.

Hotel is situated centrally which is great. But, it needs to be a bit refurbished. It looks old. Room is OK (nothing more) with lousy toillet. Shower tub is sitauated too high so if you are tall, you'll have problems taking a shower. The best part is breakfast which was really excellent.

Stayed here over the weekend. Rooms are renovated and comfortable. However the bathroom looks like it has frozen in time in the 1980s. Faucet is corroded, the WC hasnt been changed in 25 years and the bathtub is simply extra long and not very wide. The location is fantastic with the hotel just 100 metres from the presern square and the three bridges. The disappointment is the breakfast since they have a fantastic spread (probably the best buffet breakfast in terms of quality of food and variety in Ljubljana) but the quality of bowls, tables where food is placed is again 1980s style. The big problem in this hotel is service. At breakfast I asked for a cup of green tea and was brought 1001 cvet (a local brand) and not twinings or tea leaves as should be in a hotel that boasts of hosting royalty from across the world. Only when I communicated to the steward that this is unacceptable did he bring out a bag of twinings. Housekeeping staff here are rude and simply enter rooms without knocking on the door. This happened two times.

Room Tip: Choose the superior rooms on the 7th floor. They have the view of the Ljubljana Castle.
