“Outstanding Service!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Booked for 3 nights ended up staying for 4!! The staff at Grand Hotel Union were incredibly helpful from the moment that we arrived. The rooms were luxurious although the shower in the bathroom could have been placed a little better.
On what should have been our last day the reception staff ended up making calls to every transport option in Ljubljana to try to help us leave the city (because of a minor mistake on our own part). Couldn't have asked for more from them, so in the end we stayed another night!!
The only small complaint would be that the breakfast could be a little better.
Altogether though, very deserving of an excellent rating!

Room Tip: Definitely preferred the room where you could see the TV from the bed :)

This is as good as you will get. It is really 5 star but for some reason don't want it rated as such. The whole place is first class,big rooms well equipped clean and appointed. Staff are friendly and food better than average.
I would agree with most of the better than average comments about this place and if you want something clean, comfortable and in the middle of the town, this it it.
The town is amazing and the hotel reflects the ambience.

We stayed four nights in this hotel and loved it. The location is the best thing about it, literally less than one minute's walk and you're in the heart of the city. We travelled on from Ljubljana and the hotel was great for getting to and from both the bus and train station; they are both situated at the top of the road the hotel is on. A straight five minute walk up the road and you're there. Our room on both occasions we stayed at the hotel (one night, returning for three nights) was in the newer part of the hotel, not the old bit that the hotel markets itself on. NB, we were not in the business hotel, which is also new and right next door. Some might have felt cheated that they'd booked the grand old hotel, but had a room which was clearly not old and was rather featureless. However, we were perfectly happy, it was nicely furnished, clean, spacious, had good (quiet) air con and was, we thought, good value for money. I know some reading this review might feel otherwise and would only want a characterful, grander room so check with the hotel if that's you, would be my advice. Oh and the breakfast is fab; loads of choice. We'd definitely stay here again and I would recommend it to my mum - the greatest indication of approval I can give!

Room Tip: Please see my comments on the rooms - only some are in the old part of the hotel. Many, if not most...

Stayed here recently with my girlfriend. Hotel service was excellent, even observing that it was my girlfriend's birthday while we were there and surprising us both while at breakfast by entering our room and giving us a free hotel-made birthday cake! They additionally provided us with a free umbrella when it was a thunderstorm outside. The rooms are fairly basic if you order a Standard Double, but wifi is free, lots of channels on tv to choose from etc. Breakfast is wide-ranging and excellent. if I ever visit Ljubljana again then I will definitely stay here!

There are so many places nowadays that identify themselves as a "hotel" but I find many of them falling short of what a real hotel is supposed to be like. However, I would like to call this place a "real hotel" out of so many fake ones out there that fool you with bogus photos and unauthentic services nowadays.

This hotel may not be extraordinary when compared with world-class hotels, but when closely looking at every perspective of this hotel, I would say this place is "impeccable" and "genuine".

Facilities, service, breakfast, cleanliness, parking, and especially location, I loved everything about hits hotel and would like to recommend this place to others.

Very pleasant stay in this large hotel, fitted with all modern conveniences. Staff were most polite and helpful and it is well positioned. We were concerned about some negative reviews, but we are pleased that we still took the chance and booked this hotel.

This old traditional but renewed hotel is at the heart of the city with the best view of old city and castle. Clean , new and comfortable interior. Staff is friendly and helpful , especially reception desk staff.
