“Very handy location, hotel a bit dated”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

This hotel is in a great location, just 2 minutes from the main centre and the 3 bridges. The staff are very friendly and welcoming. The city isn't the cheapest for hotels so it is pricey for what you get as it is very dated. You do get access to the sister hotels including pool and spa which is good. There is no WiFi but full access to the computer in the lobbey. As with any holiday, it is always good to do some research first but if you want a decent hotel, with air con, basic facilities, average breakfast, clean, friendly staff then this place is good but definately not a 4 star hotel.

We stayed one night here in early June 2011.

Location wise it was ideal - close to the railway station and a short stroll to the middle of the old town. On arrival the staff were very friendly and helpfull and the booking in was efficient.

The room was clean and comfortable. The hotel supplied a cable to connect our laptop to their phone socket to access the internet for free which was very usefull.

Breakfast was very nice - the restauraunt full of bussiness types but the food ok. The coffee for some reason had taken on the taste of old soggy carpets - a very odd taste indeed ! (Neither of us could drink the stuff !). But as said the food was ok. The hotel looked after our luggage for 6 hrs while we toured the city the next day,

So all in all a reasonably comfy hotel - friendly staff and nice breakfast. Nothing startling but as was one of the lowest priced hotels in a pricey City thats to be expected - so no complaints at all. Worth the money we paid !!

As previously written, this hotel is not 4*.
It is, however, a comfortable base with decent amenities, has helpful staff, a better than average bathroom/ with facilities (and cleanliness) and a very reasonable choice of breakfast in a comfortable and considered breakfast room.
For the 90EU tag per night for the stay you get bath robes, slippers, bathroom amenities, English speaking channels, little sweets, free stationery (thanks for the nice red pen!), extra (and decent quality) pillows/blanket and a good air con unit. There's plenty of space to store things with considered areas for coats and shoes by the door, separate to the wardrobe.
The only niggle I had was that we had a small window, not only was it quite small but if was opposite the police station, so even though it was really (wonderfully) warm that weekend, we had to keep the curtains closed at all times. It would have been nice to have flung the window open and listened to the air outside :)

We stayed in Central Hotel for 1 night in early January. We were here just to sleep as we were passing through to get a bus to Venice. I am glad that it was only a 1 night stay and wouldn't want to stay here much longer.

Lets start from the positive. The best thing about this hotel is the location and its proximity to the centre of town and the bus station.The next best thing is that the receptionists and staff are generally polite and do try to be helpful.

Now for the less positive. The room was almost clean but the fixtures are old, the rooms dusty, basic and the bathrooms are not very comfortable. This would be okay if the hotel was a 2 or 3 star but as a 4 star, I think it's just false advertising. Walk down the hallway and you would be forgiven for thinking you were in a hostel.

We had breakfast early to make our bus and though the variety was good, the food wasn't fresh and we only ate because we needed to rather than wanting to.

The price was good but still overpriced for it's offerings. Give me a holiday inn any day! It may be adequate as a cheap business hotel, good enough for passing by but if staying here for a city trip... don't! There are probably cheaper hotels that will do the same job.

I was very satisfied with this hotel in general. The receptionist was extremely kind and although I didn't have a special-offer internet reservation, I was offered a lower price then written on a hotel's price list.
The location is very good, 5mins walk from a strict city center and less then 5 mins away from the train station (I am not sure why one of the reviewers mentioned it is 20 mins away).
The breakfest was very good - it had a large variety of food.
I wouldn't say this was the best 4 star hotel I stayed it, but in general I was satisfied.
However, note there is no wireless internet and pool is located in another hotel (of the same brand).

Positive:
- Atitude of the staff.
- Everything was clean.
- Price as agreed.
- Breakfest.

Negative:
- No wireless internet, only cable.
- The pool was NOT located in a hotel, but 200m away in Union Business hotel (which is of the same hotel brand. I realised the price of those two hotels is very similar, but Business looks much better).
- Poor mini bar with high prices.

Good business hotel very close to the pedestrian area of Lubiana: If you're looking for a romantic hotel this is not the right choice but for a fair price the Central offers clean and spacious rooms , a big breakfast, a polite and professional staff and a nice potition just 5 minutes from the center . Unfortunately we could not try the pool and the sauna because of some works .

Clean and comfortable with a good breakfast. Very close to the centre and to the railway station.
No in-room wifi but the room have a network point available for free - they'll even lend you a cable free on request.
