This hotel has it all: great history with ditto building and nicely modernised in the historical center of the town. The deluxe room was very spacious, stylish with all the necessary comfort. The food was very good and the staff was friendly and ready to go the extra mile. It was just an extremely nice experience.

Room Tip: I had a deluxe room in the old part at a reduced group rate at he first floor what was simply perfec...

This is a 4-star hotel. It's got old world charm, new world conveniences (WI-Fi, flat screen, good air conditioning, etc), and the best location near Old Town Ljubljana. Staff is great. Lots of shops, restaurants, and things to see nearby. It's clean, convenient, and with good parking. This is a great place. Why no 5-star rating then? Our 1-night for 2 was a couple hundred bucks. If you're reading thinking that two bills is NOTHING… stop here and book it. It's a no brainer, lock-in-now, solid choice. If you're reading and thinking that you'd like to find the same thing for around $100 or $150… spend another 1/2 hour trying. I don't think you'll find it, but you won't be happy unless you try. If, on the other hand, you're thinking that 200 bones is 150 over your preference…. don't book this hotel and cancel you're trip to Europe. Sorry for you ten percent-ers.

This is a solid place in a ROCK solid location of an AWESOME city. We LOVED it.

This hotel is really close to center of Ljubljana. Rooms are really comfortable. I've stayed in business section, so i had a working desk and lamp in my room.
It was very nice to have welcome sign at flat screen tv upon arrival also.
The service at the reception and during the breakfast was just excellent. The lady offered us to prepare special cafe and impress us even more.

Room Tip: Business room with working desk, lamp and massage chair. Car leftover and parking service.

Very good location close to city center, but if you have a room on the street side it can be quite noisy. Stylish hotel, we had a very nice room in the old part, but the hotel has lost its grandeur. Breakfast is a mass affair. Nice rooftop indoor pool and gym. Good value for money.

The rooms are a good size and functional. The service at reception was impeccable. Their attention to the small things is what made them so special. In particular I'd mention Miha who went out of his way to be helpful.

Spend in this hotel 2 nights.
Access to parking is a bit tricky: only 1-lane, narrow road used for in and out managed by traffic lights however not all driveres are disciplined ... this what happend to me when I was entering the parking under the hotel, the other car tried to exit the parking having red light :(
Access to/from the hotel from parking is possible with 2 elevators which are bottlenecks especially in the breakfast time ... Room on the top, 9th floor was a bit outdated, so the hotel.
Fitness room appeared to be very small, with just 1 piece of equipment to run,
Breakfast was ok, nothing extraordinary.
The location is the greatest advantage of the hotel, just couple of minutes to the lovely centre of Ljubljana.

I enjoyed our short stay but be warned - they still have smoking rooms, and if you are a non-smoker be sure to state this when booking! Very friendly, curteous and helpful staff - our car was whisked away by them into the hotel's parking garage. Good breakfast in the big restaurant - a number of American visitors at neighbouring tables declared that they too thought the Grand Union was a very pleasant hotel.
