“Good location and nice hotel”
Reviewed 4 July 2012

The hotel is right in the center of the city. It's within walking distance from the main sights. The rooms are not extremely spacious, but quite suitable for 2 persons. The service is very good, the staff was very attentive - helped us with locating restaurants and with the 'city quest', since our trip was for teambuilding.
The breakfast is very good. I do not know many hotels with such a variety.
The hotel has spa facilities with the swimming pool on 9th floor about 10m length. The viewsfrom there are not impressive, but it's a nice way to relax if the dayis hot (it was 37C at the end of June).
OverallI would highly recommend it - especially for the price of 130 euro.

Room Tip: Odd rooms seem to have better view.

One of the most important reason for selecting hotel is its location.
It is at the center of city center with everything in walking distance.

The Ljubljana castle - one of the biggest attraction - is reachable in 10-15 mins of climb. The castle was very well situated and has excellent aerial view of the city. I went there 2 times during my stay of 4 days. The location around the castle is very relaxing.
The farmer's market, the city center, shopping areas and river walk is all within walking distance from the hotel.

The breakfast was good with nice varieties. However, I would have liked more options for cereals and other vegetarian items.

The room was excellent with ceiling height of double the normal room. It has kind of old world's charm with modern amenities.

Overall, great location to enjoy Ljubljana.

Room Tip: Twin room with city center view.

Wonderful building but lacking in character and charm internally. My room in the historic part of the building was very pleasant clean and comfortable with all mod cons. Location excellent as near the old town which is delightful. Staff efficient courteous and kind. Restaurants and bars featureless and bland. Full of tour groups and would suit the business traveller.
