“Simply astonishing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Our room at Lesar Hotel Angel was one of the finest, if not the finest, rooms I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. This boutique hotel is a beautifully renovated medieval house in the heart of idyllic Ljubljana, with a fantastic central location that also somehow manages to remain quiet and away from the crowds. The welcome was warm, the staff were highly professional, and the hotel gardens were lush, but the unquestionable highlight was our room itself - the master room (number 2, I think), it was immense, with a welcoming lobby, a bathroom that was bigger than most hotel rooms, and a main room that combined an enormous (and marvellously comfortable) bed, several plush seats, and an open fireplace. Our only regret was that we'd visited in summer and not been able to use the fire! Breakfast was mildly underwhelming in comparison to other spreads that we'd enjoyed during our stay in Slovenia, but we may have been unlucky with our timing. It was a rainy Sunday morning, and it seemed that the entire hotel had had a lazy morning and descended upon the breakfast room at exactly the same time. However, the staff showed excellent initiative, seating us at the bar and giving us perfect cappuccini while we waited for a table to be cleared. And, while the variety of the food itself was not outstanding, it was continually refreshed during the time we were seated. While the rain continued outside, we had the perfect meteorological excuse to return to our palatial room - and when the sun came out, we were able to walk from the hotel up to Ljubljana Castle (stunning views) in minutes. For a luxurious, relaxing boutique hotel in a wonderfully manageable capital city, I simply can't imagine a better option...

Room Tip: Master room 2 really must be seen to be believed...!

We came on a cycling package tour. We would recommend the hotel as unique, bijou type hotel.
Lovely tranquil oasis in an excellent location. One of the nice features is the facility to have coffee and tea, plus snacks at all times during the day.

The hotel is located in a pedestrian zone; note that when arriving by car you have to park on a public parking located on Emonska Cesta about 10 minutes on foot from the hotel. The hotel has no elevator, but the staff will bring up your luggage. Quite a few steps (about 45 to our room on the second floor).

The room was spacious, good bed, very good air-conditioning (useful in 35°C), and satellite television. We were less enthusiastic about the bathroom: impossible to take a shower without causing a small deluge due to the awkward shower head.

The buffet breakfast is varied and sufficient to keep you going for a while, and lasts until 10:30 which is useful if you want a taste of Ljubljana night life.

Small point for improvement: this is the first 4-star hotel I stayed in where no ironing board is available to the guests!

The best location ever! Nice street in the old town. Next door to the antique hotel. Both are no 1 on this site. Most comfortable bed ive had in an hotel for a few years... Really nice helpful staff.. Nice breakfast.. The hotel will book ur airport transfer if u ask by email.. It was 35 euro and a truly luxurious car and nice start to our holiday.. We are doing the rest by bus.. A lovely city and fantastic people.. But if u go stay at the lesar u will love it!! Ljubiana beats any city in europe for cleanliness and simplicity.. The highlight was spontaneous opera singing down by the river.. My partner had read about it on the net.. Operatic society broke into song.. Dressed as a jogger barmaid binman and down and out.. Fantastic! Paris eat your heart out.. Been to a lot of cities in europe but this is my favourite. It is small..3 nights is enough.. But stay at the lesar!

Priced at typical capital city prices this is a good hotel. The location is perfect, just inside the pedestrianised old town, allowing us to abandon our hire car and do Ljubljana on foot. Parking was a 5 minute walk away. Our suite was comfortable, although, as I'm 6ft 5", a room in the "attic" can be a little challenging, particularly after an evening of excellent Slovene hospitality. Breakfast was extremely good with very friendly, efficient service and a great selection of fresh fruits, cereals, yoghurts, breads etc etc.

My wife and I stayed here in July, after checking out the positive reviews on TripAdvisor. We booked about six weeks in advance, checked the hotel's website, and picked out our room. We were disappointed to find only a shower rather than the shower and bathtub described on the website. The biggest disappointment was the high price we paid when we booked, about 50% higher than the price prevailing when we arrived in high season. After much complaining, we were given a 10% discount.

It's a nice small hotel in the old part of town but . . . buyer beware!

Room Tip: No fitness center, no pool, lots of steep stairs, no elevator.
