Great stay, room and service for 3 nights. For slightly lower rates, you could stay at the Grand Hotel Union Business. They share a large dining room with a sumptuous buffet breakfast (included). We wanted to stay in the older, more historic building, just for that "grand European feel." This property is in the center of the city center, just two blocks from the river and the three bridges. Cafes and shops abound. There are nearby ATM's if you are short of Euros. It's just 3-4 blocks to a flower and produce farmers' market and the dragon bridge, or, in the opposite direction along the river, to the old town section with more cafes and shops. It's 4 blocks to the tram up the hillside to the Ljubljana castle, just on the far side of the farmers' market above the river. We'd spend 2 nights in an apartment accommodation in Idrija and were headed to a B&B for 2 more nights, down south in Grabroveč/Metlika on the border with Croatia. So in Ljubljana, we splurged on a very nice hotel and we were not disappointed. Slovenia is a terrific country to visit from the Julian Alps to Lake Bled to Ljubljana to Metlika to Portorož/Piran (and that's another review). BTW, Slovenia is a wonderful country to visit!
