“Good Llocation - Service to be improved”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2010

The Grand Hotel Union Business is located in the very centre of Ljubljana. At the reception desk the staff is very friendly and helpful, but not in other parts of the hotel (e.g. at breakfast, room service). If you are out of something in your room - as shampoo - it is not so easy to get a new one. The maid does not really care. The rooms are partially renovated and the quality of the bed was really excellent. Breakfast is just average.

If you are in Ljubljana just for a day, especially during summer months, this hotel will allow you to maximize your experience as the city center is rather small and hotel is walking distance from everything that you could possibly want to see. It has perfectly refurbished new rooms and very excellent restaurant service. My group had a dinner as well, and I can only give many compliments to the staff and management. Also, it is one of the few hotels where I have seen porters smiling and working their job with happyness. The breakfast is the jam, you can enjoy plenty of varieties. If you can afford it, go for this very confy stay.

I stayed in this hotel and was very impressed. I had a room on the 8th floor, adjacent to the pool & spa. The room was freshly renovated in a contemporary and stylish way. Breakfast was excellent, the only drawback of the hotel was it does not have its own dedicated bar and restaurant, although of course these are in the main hotel next door easily reached by a walkway. On the whole I would stay again- the location for the main areas of interest is perfect, just minutes from the three bridges. Staff were very friendly and courteous.

The location was excellent. The rooms are very dated but apparently the newly renovated rooms will be available in October. There is a nightclub out the back that plays very, very loud music until about 3am which made it hard to sleep. They advised when the renovation is complete there will be new windows to block out the noise. Staff were very friendly and the included breakfast was very good.

The hotel's location is very good, close to the old town. Rooms are not very luxurious. Very basic room amenities, thin towels, etc. Also, they are in the midst of a major renovation at the hotel and there was some associated construction noise.

The hotel is fairly expensive for Ljubljana, and I will probably look elsewhere for accommodation on my next visit because I didn't think this hotel was good value. It's a run of the mill 2*-3* business hotel.

The hotel is in a great location but from our internet research we were expecting nicer rooms. They are posting pictures of what the rooms will look like after the renovation but the renovated rooms aren't available yet. We stayed a Saturday night and the nightclub behind rocks until 3 in the morning.

If you decide to stay here ask for a renovated room.
