“Good location, olden days feeling”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Hotel is located in the center of the city. Accessing by car is possible, though traffic sign forbids driving to the front.
Hotel is old, and in some things it shows as well. Not too bad though.
Our room was big, table for only one suitcase. In the middle of the room there was an island with minibar in it, which was little bit weird.
At least from the third floor there was no sounds from the street.
Breakfast was ok, nothing special in it. Sometimes I just wonder, how difficult it is to get proper tea, not just tea bags.

Stayed two nights with a tour group in July 2014. Excellent location and service. Our room was spotless and had plenty of room with a large desk and nightstands as well as chairs. The modern bathroom had a proper shower ( not inside a bathtub ). The breakfast buffet was very good and had a wide variety of items as well as an omelet station.

Service at the front desk very good on arrival with prompt help with luggage.
The room was clean and spacious with a good bathroom.

I really enjoyed a swim in the pool, though they are apt to run out of towels by late afternoon. Maybe take one from your room if in doubt.

The hotel is superbly located in the center of the city. We did not dine in the hotel but the buffet breakfast is stupendous - a shame we had eaten so well the night before.

Hotel underground garage is good, but not cheap. Luckily motorcycles are half-price!

Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The rooms at the front are OK because the street does not carry too much traffic - just taxis.

Stayed one night at the end of a walking holiday to explore Ljubljana. Arrived early and were offered a lovely room already available with a huge bathroom and a small balcony on the 6th floor. After a quiet night apart from the rain -we only realised how full the hotel was on going for breakfast. The dining room was fairly full but service was very efficient and the buffet choice was fantastic. Even fresh pancakes were available.
On checking out and leaving our bags the offer of an umbrella "just in case" was lovely.

Fantastic hotel ... the facility, amenities, and location are huge positives. It may be an older hotel, but one would never guess as it is so modern. Rooms are very nice, big beds, and great water pressure in the shower even though we were on the top floor. Staff very hospitable and friendly. The spa, indoor pool, and fitness area were top notch. We only ate in the dining area for the complimentary breakfasts and we were not disappointed ... great food! And the location was perfect ... right near the castle, waterway, and fun! Highly recommend and will definitely return.

The staff was very professional and helpful, the rooms were clean, modern, in good taste and spacious, as were the bathrooms. The location is perfect and the breakfast buffet had a wide range of choice. No complaints - great value for the money.
