Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Great location as it is just off the main square, however the hotel needs to update its rooms to justify its 4 star rating. They are very dated and there were a number of annoying niggles. Mainly, the fact that it was way too hot and the heating couldn't be adjusted in our room (switch had broken). There were no...

I stayed here for two days on business. We were warmly greeted at check in and were given good recommendations for walking around town and restaurants. The room was comfortable with a nice work area and fast internet. The room was quiet and the hotel was very nice. The location was excellent and a short walk to the business district,...

Lovely location and well experienced staff always helpful. The rooms were decent sized, slightly smaller but well appointed. The hotel amenities look new and well maintained. Second time here and was not dissatisfied except getting vegetarian food is an issue.

This location is so central that I would stay here again just for that! It was so nice to explore the old city and be able to pop back to the hotel to drop off packages or change outfits. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Many of the items at breakfast were not refilled.

My husband and I stayed here for one night in September. The parking situation was a little confusing at first but the staff was extremely helpful, going above and beyond to help get us settled in. The room was clean and fairly spacious but the decor was slightly dated. The location could not have been better, about a minute's walk...

This hotel is literally right behind the famous pink colored church (Franciscan Church of the Annunciation) and 200m to the town centre. Since Ljubljana is so compact, the hotel is also a easy 10-15 min walk to the train station. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Room service food was yummy ! Clean rooms and I enjoyed the complimentary...

I've been staying at this hotel for more than 15 years during my trips to Slovenia. It has been all the time at the top quality. The architecture and interiors, location, rooms and facilities, breakfast, wifi, and above all the staff are genuinely superb. It is certainly among the best hotels in Europe.
