At the Slon, which is Slovenian for elephant, you are greeted in your room by a plush one. The design and atmosphere of this hotel is intended for a high level of comfort and service, both of which had pleased me. I stayed for 3 nights, the first night in a double room on the main street on the second (European) floor and shifted to a single room on the sixth floor for the next two nights. The rooms were very comfortable and conducive to working, while the buffet breakfast was the most sumptuous that I have had in a hotel in Europe and the U.S., ever, and I've traveled a lot. The service was friendly, efficient, and professional. The location is convenient--my work took me a 20-minute walk away from the city center, and the ultra-convenient bicycle rental system (http://en.bicikelj.si/) had several stations nearby. There was no shortage of dinner options in the surroundings.
However, the catch to all of this comfort and convenience was the noise. On the second floor, the noise from the street traffic was very audible; earplugs were kindly provided, but I'm not accustomed to sleeping with such things in my ears. The room on the sixth floor was above the pedestrian zone, but there was a disco blaring just outside the second night in that room. I think the dynamic Ljubljana nightlife is a general problem for any of the many hotels in the center of the city, so the only alternative would be a location slightly further away. This is a beautiful city, and I happily return for every opportunity.
