“Clean but noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

I went Ljubljana for a conference and stayed there 2 nights. The hotel is at the center of the city and everywhere is very near. Staff was very helpful and they gave us coctail coupons for the party below. But party went on till 4 in the morning and we couldnt sleep even though the staff gave us ear plugs. Also the windows are very old so room that looks to the main road can be extra noisy.
Still, everyday there were fresh apples and staff helped us about where to see and go. Rooms were very clean and unexpected for a 2 stars hotel.

Room Tip: ask before if there is a party at the time you are staying.

More than a hotel, this is a landlord with several rooms, as there is no restaurant or bar etc. Anyway, if you want to spend a little money, it's very good. 5 min from triple bridge so it's very close to the city centre; clean and comfortable rooms (just no tv) with new furniture, toiletries and towels; staff is nice. Only one thing to complain about, a nasty smell from the wc, but we just closed the door and the room was ok.

Hotel Center is lovely. It's tucked up behind a shop, but the location is very central to both the train station and the old town. The rooms are comfortable and clean, and the staff are friendly. Highly recommended!

The best feature of Hotel Center is Alexandra, the weekend receptionist who greeted us, gave advice on parking, told us that we weren't late, made us feel welcome, and offered us plenty of good advice and answers to questions that we asked. Besides her, everything else about Hotel Center says "low budget" and "barely adequate." Guests have to compete for hot water; choose the wrong time for your shower and you'll get a cold one. The showers in our two rooms both leaked water all over the bathroom; it's very difficult to confine the water to the shower area. The "free wi-fi" works only occasionally; I'm glad we brought along an alternative. There is no parking available - we had to scrounge for blocks to find a spot for our rental car. The back-alley entry is far from hospitable.
But the rooms were clean, and we slept well, and the price was low. The feeling I get from Hotel Center is that here is a place that has cut expenses to the bone. Too bad Alexandra isn't the manager; I have a feeling that she would make it a much nicer place to stay.

Situated relatively close to all the "Jazz" and at a fair price, this hotel was a good place to lay our head at for a night in lovely Ljubljana.
A bit uncomfortable is the fact that this hotel gives you the idea that you arrived at a hostel rather than a hotel. The entrance is pretty tricky and back-doored.
In summary - I'd spend a night or two if I needed a budget-place again.

We stayed here for two nights in August 2012.
The room wasn't air conditioned but did have a fan.
The location was great, it was only about a ten minute walk to the centre.
Comfortable enough for a short stay.

We stayed at Hotel Center for 5 nights while we were exploring Ljubljana and Slovenia. For 60 euros/night, you can't beat the price and the location.

The rooms were what you'd expect from a budget hotel--sparse, but clean. Each side of the bed had a bedside table, the bathroom was quite nice and clean, and we were provided with a fan (it was at least 90 F every day). No TV in the room, but that was fine by us. Breakfast was not included, we were given vouchers to buy breakfast for 4 euros in the bar next door. We didnt' end up using them, because it was cheaper to buy from the bakery down the street. If you rely on the bar, however, be aware that they're closed on Sundays and holidays, so the option was only available to us 2 of the 4 days we were staying.

Now, as for the noise--yes, there is definitely noise from the road, so make sure you bring earplugs. That being said, for the location (5-min walk from the old town), you won't find a better price. I much prefer road noise to bar noise, so it wasn't as bad for me. The noise was a lot better with the window closed, but it became unbearably hot. It was also hot in the hallway because there are no windows/AC/etc., so there is no air movement.

We found that all of the people who worked at reception were nice and helpful, especially Alexandra. She gave us several suggestions on places to eat, things to see, etc. Any time we had a question, she was great.

Overall, yes, Hotel Center does have a noise problem, but for the price and location, you really can't beat it. The rooms are basic but well equipped and very clean.
