“Best Hospitality and beautiful Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2012

I spent 7 days in this hotel in November, 2012. Really good hotel with convenient location in a downtown of Ljubljana. its very near to three bridges and beautiful market.

the hotel staff is very courteous and helpful and English speaking, this is really helpful for foreigner who don't know Slovenian Language. They provide all services very fast and just perfect. I really enjoyed the breakfast and ambiance of the hotel. I really enjoyed the activities happening in the hotel specially couple dance in Tuesday and Saturday evening.

Room Tip: higher floor is very good to stay and are quieter

Central location and beautiful building give this hotel a great potential to be the best in Ljubljana.
Pity it's a little bit wasted by the bland room equipment and noisy AC.
Don't take me wrong - rooms are clean and well maintained, but are neither modern nor flair - just without any character and the used materials are not the high-end.

Otherwise:
- good breakfast - lots of space (shared with Hotel Union Business), wide selection, attentive staff
- clean and quiet
- free, high performance Wi-Fi from Ruckus Wireless
- quick check-in/check-out
- reasonable pricing

Worth a stay for your busienss needs.
A good base for visiting Ljubljana.

I spent four days here at a business conference in the hotel. Service and accomodations were first-rate. The staff speaks perfect English which is very convenient for anyone who does not speak Slovene (all but about 3 million people in the world most of them in Slovenia). They offer an extensive breakfast buffet with good choices. Lunches and coffee break snacks were excellent, especially the delicious Slovenian pastries.

The location is outstanding. One block from the central square from where one can explore the old town and the historic bridges and castle. In the opposite direction only a 10-minute walk away is the Ljubljana bus and train station with convenient service throughout Slovenia and good connections outside.

Minor inconvenience is hotel layout that is a bit confusing because of the building connection with their sister hotel GHU Business (not reviewed here). A minor annoyance is the hotel airport shuttle offer which is expensive compared to other shuttle service available. Better yet use the city bus line for only 4.10 euros.

This place has, most of all, a superb location in the centre of the town. The service was good, the room was spacious and well maintained and the pool was a nice plus!! I strongly recommend this place.

We needed to switch hotels at the last minute, found a 1 night vacancy 3 hours before check-in, via online booking site, for 139 EUR. We were treated exceptionally well; upgraded to a top-floor larger room, offered early check-in, and had an extensive breakfast buffet included for 2. Our room was in the charming art nouveau wing built in 1905, but with utramodern bath, HDTV, free wi-fi, fast elevators. (Look for buffet reviews under restaurants). The location is perfect for tourists, just feet from the Franciscan Church of the Annunciation and the riverbank.

We stayed here for one night driving back from Croatia and whilst I don't know what the other hotels in Ljubljana are like can't believe they can be much better than this one.
The parking is under the hotel and locked, so for us ideal.The walk from the car park passes photos of previous guests, Bill Clinton, Mika Hakinnen etc.
The reception staff were very friendly and very quick. the room was very good, big spotless and quiet, I'm not sure if it was by chance but the TV channel set up had the first 10 channels in English, nice touch if not.
Had breakfast the next morning, nice friendly staff again but the icing on the case was the quality of the breakfast buffet, this has to be the best and most varied buffet I have seen in any hotel.
All in all excellent and wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

This is a very large hotel with a business section as well and it suited us perfectly. This was one of the most expensive hotels on a five week holiday with my 16 yo daughter. We stayed 2 nights and we were not disappointed with this little lap of luxury. I drove from Croatia to here and could not find my way into the street through the labyrinth of one way streets they have in Ljubljana. I parked close by and the porter came and drove my car into the hotel. Very good service! The pool and sauna were welcomed after our 6.5 hour drive. (40 min trying to find how to access the hotel!!) Our room was very spacious and it was in easy walking distance to everything.
