“Hotel Slon, Ljubljana - Nice hotel, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

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.

We booked this hotel because of its reviews on Trip Advisor & it didn't disappoint! The location is perfect: walking distance from almost everything; the rooms are great; the breakfast buffet is wonderful! Staff speak English & are very helpful & friendly. This hotel has everything you need for a lovely stay in Ljubljana.

I have stayed at this hotel on two occasions, once in 2010 with my family and solo in 2012 and it has only gotten better each time. The rooms are specious for European standards, with modern amenities, comfy beds, and wood floors. Breakfast is great with fresh fruit, cereals, meats, pastries, and cheeses. The hotel is in the best location in Ljubljana, right down the street from the main Preseren Square, and within walking distance to many of Ljubljana's attractions. The hotel staff are really friendly and helpful as well. Best hotel in Ljubljana for location and value!

Hotel Slon is located in the best portion of the city! Historic Ljubljana is well within walking distance and is a very charming old town. Hotel Slon rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable and the delicious breakfast is something to look forward to each day. The price & value is good. We had a rental car but were able to visit most of the places and attractions by walking. Be aware, the parking and un-parking of our rental car was a bit of a harrowing experience. We spent a large percentage of time just waiting for service at the reception desk, which was a snag.

It could be a blah hotel, but it's special. Perfect downtown location, and a friendliness that seems natural rather than routine. Small but clean, quiet, decent, friendly room, free perfect wifi without fuss, great shower. Great sidewalk cafe and lounge, restaurant. The breakfast is great. They don't just have all the kids of eggs and meats and fruit. - he sunny side up eggs are perfect and runny inside,the melon slices are sweet and fragrant, there are six cooked vegetables in the hot breakfast, there are peaches, necatrines, pears, kiwis etc etc, lin seeds, pumpkin seeds. in beautiful containers. champagne. the whole place has a touch of class.

a very nice and good hotel ,located on the main street near the old town and attraction.
the room are quite good could use more space .
the breakfast was great with all kinds of varietys, the stuff at breakfast is wounderfull ,polite smilly ,whatever you need just ask them and they will get you.
the reception desk is another story ,you would expect from them to have more knowledge of tours around and in Ljubljana,but they don't. and one of them (the big guy)spoke very rude to us .
basicly we were pleased from staying .

Room Tip: ask for a quite room
