“The best location possible!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

Very good location... a few meters from everything. The breakfast is very varied, with everything you could want really.... The rooms are quilte old fashioned but very clean and the beds are very good. They even have a "pillow menu" :)

Loved this hotel and Im coming back...

Very good location, right in the old town and walking distance to everywhere a tourist would like to visit, staff polite, rooms well decorated. As its in the centre it gets noisy around late at night with music from nightclubs and shouting people in the streets, probably thats why there were ear plugs in the room! besides thats its very good

The hotel was great. Service is helpful, polite and everybody (staff and people in general) speak exellent English. Breakfast buffet was very good with good variety, quality and service and served until 11 am every morning. Housekeeping did not disturb too early in the morning. The hotel room was spacious with enough closets. The bed was very comfortable and clean, pillows (4 of them plus a pillow menu) were super-comfortable :) Tea and coffee facilities were nice, with large mugs. Internet worked fast.The hotel is very comfortable and very good location, the corner of a main street and the pedestrian area leading to the bridges (and the rest of the beautiful historic centre). Rooms are large, wifi is free. Being downtown, valet parking was great.

The hotel is all you can expect of a 4-star hotel. Service is helpful, polite and everybody (staff and people in general) speak exellent English. No disturbing noise or anything else to distract the stay. Breakfast is one of the best I have had in Central-European hotels, and served until 11 am every morning, so no need to rush there too early. For a holiday-enjoyer it is also nice that the housekeeping did not show up to knock the door too early in the morning, instead they visited around noon. The hotel room was spacious with enough closets. The bed was very comfortable and clean, pillows (4 of them plus a pillow menu) were super-comfortable :) Tea and coffee facilities were nice, with large mugs. Internet worked fast. I found two (minor?) things to improve in the room: safe box is placed on a shelf in a closet so high that it was hard to reach and actually I couldn't reach it without taking the rubbish bin from the toilet and climbing on it... Second detail to complain was the shower, it pointed straight forward and coulnd't be turned downwards, so it got the whole bathroom wet unless you keep it in your hand while washing.

The hotel's restaurant is quite nice and not over-priced, and they serve nice drinks too. About getting around, the centre is easily accessed on foot, and to go further, the hotel calls you a taxi, they say that the taxis waiting in front of the hotel are expensive (don't know if this is true). I wanted to go to the shopping centre BTC-city and the taxi ordered by the hotel costed just 5€ and the driver spoke exellent English too. I agreed with the driver that he (or someone else from that company) will take me back on agreed time, but they did not show up! I waited for 20 mins and then took another taxi, it costed 8€, but it was Friday-traffic hour. Perhaps I should have informed the hotel reception about this failure of "their" taxi company. Buses are a bit complicated in Ljubljana as you have to purchase a card, and if you just need the bus once or twice, it's not practical. The hotel also offers an airport shuttle for 9€/person/one-way. That may be a bit expensive compared to local buses, but they don't run too frequently and may stop far from the hotel, and the normal taxi would be around 30-40€, and the shuttle serves you straght to and from the hotel.

My first touch to Slovenia - and a positive one. Hotel is big, rooms large, breakfast leaves nothing to be added. Only snag is the elevator system - only two elevators serve the main lobby. It can get busy on the morning checkout rush hour. There is a third lift that serves the restaurant area very well, also the meeting rooms.

My tip: use the hotel-bookable airport transfer service. It is cheap and really fast (a bit too fast, driver seems not to follow the speed regulations to closely ;) ).

The hotel is very comfortable and the location is very good: in the corner of a main street and the pedestrian area leading to the bridges (and the rest of the beautiful historic centre). Rooms are large, breakfast buffet excellent (in diversity, quality and service), wifi is free... It's quite a big hotel and very busy with conferences and such but the service is very good and the general ambiance has more character than usual in business locations. The airport shuttle is efficient and costs 1/8 of a taxi... don't hesitate!

Room Tip: My room was on the lower floors facing the main street and yet I didn't find it noisy.

We stayed at the Slon one night. The location is fantastic and they had a good breakfast buffet. We had an interior room which was very quiet but the other rooms looked like they would be quite noisy. In fact, they gave us ear plugs by our beds in our room. Thankfully these weren't needed. The hotel has an old but very well maintained style. I have no hesitation recommending it but choose your room carefully.

Room Tip: The hotel is right on a very busy street. They placed ear plugs by our bed. Our room was super qui...
