Had the opportunity to visit Ljubljana in November on a whirlwind European vacation. It was a beautiful stay & we loved every minute of it. My first impression getting off the train from Salzburg Austria was oh no, I think we made a mistake! The area was a little sketchy & some of the people outside of the train station made me feel uncomfortable. I know that train stations and areas around them are usually less desirable so I put it out of my mind & I'm glad I did. We walked a few block to our hotel & couldn't have been happier! The Grand Union Exec is a GREAT stay. It is right in the middle of the city center & central to the gorgeous canals & shops with lots of great restaurants & a markets. We were just a few steps away from the 3 bridges & had a wonderful view. Our room had a balcony & was very well equipped with everything you could want or need. The room was spacious, the breakfast was plentiful & the hotel staff was very accommodating. Definitely a must stay when in Ljubljana! Also, we were fortunate enough to run into a truly nice man that is the owner/operator of his own taxi. He drove us to Trieste Italy for 99 euro on a Sunday morning. The trip was just shy of an hour & the train was about a 4 hour trip. TAXI DRAGO is his business name & he is usually outside of the Grand Union Exec. His number is 041 759 579, I would not hesitate to use him again!
