My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights in April 2012. We found the hotel to be very clean and spacious. Our room and bathroom were large with plenty of counter surface space. The service staff spoke English and were very helpful with our questions. The breakfast buffet was amazing with plenty of delicious options. Parking was 17 euros per night but worth the convenience. The location of the hotel is fantastic. It is a two minute walk to the Triple Bridge and a stunning view of the castle. The castle itself is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Shopping and lots of cafes are just outside the door. We stayed in Room 261 which faces the main street. I was concerned about noise but the windows kept the room very quiet (and filled with lots of natural light) The hotel does not have the charm of a boutique hotel. But if don't like to take chances with a hotel, this is a safe, quality option. Also, if you have rented a car, it is just two minutes of driving in the city center before you are on less crowded streets and heading toward the highway.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in April 2010. We found Ljubljana an excellent destination for a relaxing weekend break with plenty to see and a great choice of restaurants. The hotel is centrally located, our room was large and comfortable (we had two queen size beds!) and the breakfast buffet was well stocked with a good range of options. We would stay here again.

I was a walk in and was pleasantly surprised. Very luxurious and the rooms have recently been updated. Free Internet, clean rooms, very modern fixtures. It's only a short walk to the City Center. A bit pricey, but worth it for the location and comfort.

I've stayed a couple of times at the GUH, and it is always going to be my first choice in Ljubljana. Really clean, comfortable, modern & quiet. Free WIFI. Excellent buffet breakfast. Small but decent gym with treadmill, bike, universal gym & free weights. Lovely roof-top pool and spa. Centrally located.

The staff are helpful and attentive without being intrusive.

Room Tip: The non-smoking policy is followed, and hence the non-smoking rooms smell nice and fresh. No stale...

A two night stay in this hotel proved to be a overall good experience. I would recommend it to people that want the convenience of a central location but and are looking to to get out - if you are looking for a cheap room then perhaps look elsewhere.

The hotel's location is as central as they get - overlooking the edge of the city centre square, river and bridges. The historic turn of the century features of the hotel are limited to a few guests with most rooms in a modern tower. If you are expecting a historic feel be sure to request a room accordingly.

Facilities used were all satisfactory - the indoor pool was very nice although had some strange opening hours. The breakfast room was also in a modern part of the hotel.

While the hotel prides itself on the quality of the staff we found them to be efficient but not overly friendly. This was more true of Concierge than any other role - the breakfast staff seems to be the nicest.

Our room was a very large room on the 7th floor of the tower which was facing the old centre and had a small balcony overlooking the Castle and city streets - this was a most unexpected view and really a stunning plus to our stay in town. The bed was not the best I have stayed on but everything was clean and well maintained. Wifi reception was very poor.

The buffet breakfast (inc in our room price) was of excellent quality and though a busy dining room the staff were active and quick ensuring that everything was topped up as you would want. The quality of the food was also excellent.

My only criticism is that the front desk and concierge staff could have done more to help and make the reception area of the hotel a more inviting place - instead I was left with the sense that once you left your room they would prefer you out of the way.

Overall a very pleasant hotel in the right location to explore a beautiful town.

Room Tip: Check what you paid for and then request that you be in the historic part or facing the city if in t...

A solid four star hotel. Modern facilities with clean and comfortable rooms. Free WIFI a plus. Breakfast buffet is very good. Staff is friendly and helpful. Convenient location in city center – easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants and sites. Amenities are good. Good for the business traveler and a perfect hotel for a short vacation trip. Value for money – 4 out of 5.

Room Tip: Higher floor with exterior view. Some interior rooms face church clock tower - bells all night
