“Its location is everything”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

Stayed here for 4 nights and the best thing I like about this hotel, besides its fast internet is the location. You're literally 5 minutes' walk from the bus/train station and the Town Square and there's even a Mercator about a few hundred meters away. I agree with Rick B's comment about the room being sober - think they hotel can improve in that department; at least provide its guests with a kettle and some cups. If you're just looking for a centrally located clean room to sleep and keep your luggage, this hotel is ideal. Their breakfast spread is also not too bad.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2013

It’s very easy to find this hotel if you arrive by car. Parking places are available under the hotel at a rate of 18€/day. City Hotel is located very good to explore the center of Ljubljana. Rooms are sober (no mini-fridge, basic furniture) but clean, with free and working Wi-Fi. Breakfast was average with awful orange juice. The staff is very friendly and helpful, our compliments!
All together and regarding the price it’s an average hotel and somewhat characterless but a good location for your stay during a city trip to Ljubljana.

I stayed here with a large group if international colleagues. The room was big and clean with good air conditioning and a very comfortable bed. The one downside was breakfast - although the food was good, it was very busy with not enough seats to go around and no staff to assist.

Location good, very central. Room basic but clean, breakfast was average, coffee and drinks in bar reasonable. Staff at reception not great except young guy, Spainish name but Slovenian, very helpful and always pleasant a real asset to hotel.
Ljubljana itself was wonderful, don't miss trip to lake Bled, spectacular! Don't book expensive trip, local bus station 10mins from hotel , 6eu each way on the hour. Ljubljana Castle worth a visit also.
Chocolate is superb..... Would recommend for a weekend trip.

The hotel is a 20min drive from the airport. We arranged a shuttle upfront. if you order a taxi always order it from the hotel reception otherwise you will be paying more if you take one in the street. we paid our taxi fares trough the bill of the hotel which was very handy as taxis don't take credit cards! Good location; not too busy. within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Safe neighborhood. hotel has a very friendly atmosphere and not too serious so perfect for either family holidays as business. Bar and restaurant staff very nice. good food at breakfast; wide variety. room was extremely clean and had a big bathroom with separate shower and bath. no frills but everything you need is there. Free Wifi, etc...Ljubljana is a fantastic city and will definitely be back either for city trip or longer holiday with the family!

Superb location within a few minutes walk of the old town with a plethora of restaurants and bars. Buffet type breakfast with a wide range of food to suit all tastes - unfortunately it didn't include an omelette chef which is my favourite choice when travelling.
We upgraded to superior rooms which are a good size and well furnished.
The City is perhaps one of the prettiest I have visited so the hotel within walking distance was ideal. I even managed an early walk around the town before breakfast.

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
