We just spent 2 nights here during the Euro Basket tournament. I believe for this reason, our rate at 135 euros per night was higher than normal and more than I would expect for a 3 star hotel. But, at the same time, a lot of hotels were sold out and I was glad to get one in the city center.

For the good points - it is very convenient - less than 5 min walk to the old town and 3 bridges and restaurants and the open food market, 10 min walk to the train station. Our rate included breakfast. During our stay, there were large tour groups staying here. The first day, it was really crowded to the point we could not find a table. That was a bit of an annoyance. The breakfast is mediocre - hot food not hot enough and the second day, there were no pastries. Also, on the first day, since there were so many people, there was a long line for coffee and the orange juice was more water than juice. Upon arrival, we arrived before 2 pm and check was at 2 so we ate lunch in the hotel but the food was mediocre.

When I booked, only a triple room was available. This room had 3 single beds - 2 they pushed together so not really a double bed. There were actually 2 bathrooms and one was handicapped accessible-both bathrooms had sink and shower. The room was clean and functional. Furniture was more like IKEA but enough room for everything and the room was quite big. The water from the shower does tend to come out and you have to be careful that you do not slip when you have finished showering.

You can only turn on the electricity and AC while the key is in the slot. Since we only got 1 key, it was always hot when we returned to the room. The room does get pretty hot and the AC does not really cool the room. Also, the hair dryer is the kind you mount on the wall and it was weak and it would shut off automatically when it got hot so of course it takes awhile to dry your hair.

WIFI was complimentary and it was fast. No complaints.

Correspondence with the hotel was great. I contacted them prior to arriving and they arranged for Markun Shuttle to pick us up at the airport for 9 euros per person. It was paid as part of our hotel room. We left via train to Zagreb and bought tickets at the train station a couple days prior to leaving.

This was in reach of the railway station along an almost level street, the room was comfortable, the desk staff were helpful, especially as we were booking tours through them, but the catering staff left a lot to be desired.

At breakfast, there were never enough plates, cups or saucers, the "juice" had never seen the inside of any plant, and pushing a button was a lottery, because what came from day to day from a given button varied. The roof garden was supposedly open all the time, but we invariably had to go and summon somebody.

If you stay there and go out to eat or drink, all will be well. If the kitchen and wait staff are given a good shake-up, all will be excellent. I would give the desk staff the job of retraining them.

This summer we have been for 2 nights at the City Hotel in Ljubljana and everything was excellent: the room with AC was very large and clean, the breakfast and the location is very good, the hotel is located at a walking distance from the old town which is a very good feature for a quick stay.
We forgot our passports in the room's safe and the personnel was very efficient to verify for them and keep them safe until we were back from 400 km.

Room Tip: if you travel during the summer, reserve a room with AC, it worth paying a little more and be comfor...

We stayed here 2 nights as when we were trying to book we could not seem to get a room anywhere else. The hotel was OK. It reminded us of an old Soviet era "un-renovated" square block. The carpets could use a good cleaning or replacement and the walls could have had a few touch-ups in our rooms. The bed and bathrooms were clean and our rooms on the 5th floor were fairly quiet. The breakfast in the morning was OK with lots of variety. The service was very good both with the front desk and the breakfast. Also the location was good as only a few blocks into the centre of old town.

The hotel is very centrally located and the breakfast is fantastic. However the toilet paper in my room and my friends room is so far away from the toilet (behind the bathroom door) you have to actually stand up and take a step to retrieve it.
When I arrived in the hotel my fan did not work I made them aware of this immediately, however despite being in the hotel for three nights and reminding them of the situation they never repaired the fan.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
City Hotel is located in the very heart of Ljubljana and is an excellent choice for both business guests and tourists to discover the charms of Ljubljana and Slovenia. It has a wonderful view of Ljubljana Castle and the city cathedral, and an ideal location just a stone’s throw from the historic old town. This pleasant hotel among the vibrant city inns, shops, and attractive historical buildings offers local Slovenian and international cuisine as well as a state-of-the-art congress center. The Jože Pučnik international airport is only 25 km from the hotel, and the main railway and bus station is only 400 m away. The hotel is easy to access from all of the city’s major roads; once in the city, you simply follow the blue hotel signs. Ljubljana’s City Hotel is the successor to the venerable Štrukelj Hotel, which opened in 1907. The current hotel excels in its friendly staff, the warmth of its rooms, and a broad range of services found at an excellent location in the very city center. City Hotel has 201 rooms, three luxury suites, an underground garage, a conference center with four meeting rooms, a library, a terrace, an Internet corner, a restaurant, and a bar. City Hotel’s complete makeover concluded with its opening in September 2007. The “basic” and “standard” rooms were renovated, and the “superior” rooms were moved to a completely new part of the hotel. All of the rooms use a card-locking system and all of them have free Internet access. ... more   less
