“Great location”
Reviewed 15 August 2010

nice hotel, with great buffet breakfast and superb location close to centre. The only problem was that the leisure centre ( pool & fitness) was closed due to repairs - and this was practrically the only reason we were chosing this hotel. In addition we were not informed in advance of this. Fine otherwise.

The new renovated rooms are good; I included a picture of the room and bathroom. Also, the air conditioning works well, unlike much of Ljubljana. There are still signs of renovation, like carpet in the stairwell, and the summer refurbishment of the pool.
Service is polite, but not overly talkative; the desk staff will handle requests in English, but it's not like chatty America. The included breakfast is a full breakfast, and has nice breads, though I don't suggest the bacon.
The location of this hotel is very nice, only 1 1/2 blocks from Preseren Square and the centre of town. This hotel is not as luxurious as the main Union, but it's cheaper. If you want a good hotel (not a 5-star one) in a great location, you'll be happy here.

We stayed at the hotel for one night while visiting Ljubljana. The hotel facilities are very modern, with flat screen TV, free wifi internet, great bathroom, everything very comfortable and clean. Good breakfast, abundant and with a lot of variety. Excellent location in the city center. It was a bit deceiving that the hotel had a pool, but it was closed during our stay.

I was initially unhappy that the pool was closed for renovation as it was a major reason for choosing the Grand Union. I'm sure hotels know their maintenance schedules well in advance, and I feel they should be honest when you book. Having said that the service in the hotel was excellent and we loved the garden restaurant and the breakfast was the best we had ever had. We did also have the noisy nightclub experience before figuring out how to close the windows properly and engaging the aircon. Location is simply superb.

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.
