“"Great Hotel"”
Reviewed 27 June 2012

This is a great hotel, well situated within easy walking distance of the old town, all the major attractions and lots of good restaurants. Our room was quiet, clean and spacious. We found the staff very polite and helpful. The breakfast was excellent!

This is a very nice older hotel. The lobby is small and that may get one to think that this is not a great place. But beyond the lobby the hotel is wonderful. The rooms are spacious, with a nice bathroom, comfortable bed, free Internet (WiFI) and large flat screen TVs with many channels. The meeting rooms for conferences are large and not your typical designerless style. They are lovely with very good staff that can actually run electricity, audio and video. The conference breaks are also well done. The hotel has a nice breakfast too. For other meals one goes outside, but that is not a problem as restaurants are plentiful and close. You are one block from the river where there are many tavernas, bistros, restaurants and pizzarias. A couple of blocks in the other direction and you are at the world class JB restaurant. Access to the airport is easy with their affordable shuttle service. All in all an excellent hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside courtyard room if you like quiet.

The hotel is centrally located and within walking distance to most of Ljubljana sights, such as the three bridges, market, the castle, old town, museums, galleries, etc.
This 5 star hotel seems to have two different guest room buildings under one roof. If you are directed to take the right at the reception and follow the corridor towards the breakfast area to get the lift to your room then note: these rooms are most certainly not a 5 star standard. Our room was spacious and provided a nice view of the castle, however the furniture was dated and tired, and the room in general could have done with a lick of paint. The bathroom was spacious, clean and modern.
Breakfast buffet was varied and plentiful, worthy of a 5 star hotel. The breakfast staff were very friendly and remembered us throughout our stay which was a nice touch. Reception was well run, friendly and professional.
The pool on the top floor was good size, clean and offered good views of the city.
We would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, however we will probably try to stay at the Grand Hotel Union Business, which is just next door (you can actually walk between the two hotels, they also share the pool and breakfast room) and managed by the same hotel group.

nice hotel in a pretty good location, and may have more nice things to say about it if I had stayed longer than one night, but nothing has quite grasped my attention - exactly what you may expect from a run-of-the-mill European business / family hotel situated in a historical building in a decent downtown area of a lovely city: nothing more, nothing less.

Excellent hotel. We had a room overlooking the street with a view of the square (where 3 bridges meet). It has a parking garage with the luxury of self parking. The next day we had a note that event the wind shield was cleaned during our stay.
It is stated as a four star hotel, but I would rate it five. Breakfast was excellent. The supervisor (breakfast room) was checking all the time that everything was in order besides checking and cleaning the fruit one by one. Never seen anything like that!!!!!
The room was huge, two double beds. Huge big screen lcd tv. All in all, it was an excellent experience which I would go again.

Room Tip: I would suggest a room overlooking the ceramic façade building. Executive and Business are combined...
