The Hotel Slon (aka Elephant) is a nice four-star hotel. Our room was very comfortable and clean. Internet and air conditioning worked well. We arrived by train; stayed one night; rented a car at Avis in Ljubljana for a week to tour the Julian Alps; came back eight days later to return the car and stayed another three nights at the Slon before flying home. The hotel arranged a shuttle to the airport (which is quite far out of town) for 9 euros each, and other than that, we never needed a cab due to the excellent location of the hotel. It's just a couple of blocks from the main points of interest in the old town along the river, Ljubljana Castle, etc. It's also just three blocks (in the other direction) to Tivoli Park (not an amusement park like its namesake in Copenhagen, but a very pretty wooded park, great for picnics and walks). Ljubljana is, in my opinion, one of Europe's most charming and manageable capital cities. If you are interested, it's also a short eight block walk from the Slon to the Avis rent-a-car office. The reception staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was quite good for 4 star, fresh eggs and anything else you would want. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone with similar interests and needs. I should mention that there ARE only one or two other hotels of this type in Ljubljana, but this is the one that I'll return to and recommend to my friends.
