Reviewed 23 July 2010

Our choir (approx. 44 people) stayed at this hotel for one night. The staff was very attentive and the rooms were spacious, clean, and modern. We had booked a buffet meal for the evening here, and the food was excellent. Location is great and close to major tourist attractions. Certainly worth the splurge.

Hotel Union Executive and Hotel Union Business are both in the same building. I have stayed in both parts of the hotel. This text is about the Union executive part.
Biggest Advantages of the Union Hotel: - Location, - Availability of Parking - Appearance from Outside
The rooms are rather old, at the time I stayed in the Union they didn't have wireless, old fashioned rooms. To expensive for the service they offer. however , there are only a few hotels that are located as good as union.
They started upgrading their rooms when I was there, which is definately needed.

We had a very nice stay, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the location in central Ljubljana could not be better. However, the service is surly at best and plain rude at worst and the car park is an astonishing 14Euros per night. When I checked out after a week there, no-one even asked us if we had had a pleasent stay.

The reason to stay here is the location - you are right next to all of the action and sights. It is a business hotel and whilst it appears to have had some past glory there is none in evidence now - all remodeled...probably about ten years ago.

Look out for the shower - it will do a zany dance when you turn the water on and if you are under the shower head when you turn off the shower the heavy thing thuds down on your head.

You'll hear all going on next door so it's best to be at the end of a corridor. The maids get going early and tend to yell at one another across the halls. Finally, the bed is not a "Heavenly Mattress", the pillows are not feather, and the poly-fibre-filled comforter is anything but comforting - still I have to say I slept well thanks to great blackout curtains.

"Wellness Room" is a room with an ancient stairstep and stationary cycle. Not too disappointing given two days there only with plenty of walking to be had.

Breakfast is great.

I paid €120 / night and thougth this to be a good value for the very centre (room and breakfast).

I cannot compare this to comparables (Slon - same price) or other types like the Antiq but I would recommend this as a safe bet.
Ljubljana is the best.

If you come to Ljubljana by car but want to stay close to the main attractions, huge garage may be important (extra charge). My teenage daughter and me got a twin bed room (828) on the top floor. It was commodious with a great view. However, design is not contemporary but it is ok. Staff was friendly and the breakfast was great!
