“Very Good Hotel and Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2014

The hotel Slon is ideally located within minutes of the major attractions and restaurants within the old part of Ljubljana. Leave the hotel, turn left and left again, and you're right in the middle of everything. The buffet was excellent, from both a variety and quality viewpoint. Highly recommended hotel if you're in the area.

The "Slin" Hotel is located on the main street of Ljubljana, very close to the old town and the castle hill. The hotel has a long history dated the beginning of previous century. The service here is very good, staff is very helpful and friendly. A parking is located in 10 minutes walk distance from the hotel and there is the problem with parking at the front of the building. But this is the only minus, which I have found. Rooms are very clean, not big, but comfortable. You can prepare coffee and tee in the room, you have also mineral water included in price. The selections of drinks and alkohols you can find in minibar. The bathroom is equipped with hair dryer and a dressing gown. You can use small spa or fitness center, located in the building. Breakfasts offers nice selections of food, juices, fruits and great coffee.

It’s an easy walk from the train/bus station to the hotel. The hotel is situated a minute walk from the “pink church” and square.
Check in was efficient.
Room 337 has a foyer before the main room and the bathroom off to the left. There are large windows that open. There’s a desk with chair plus a double bed. The lighting is a little lacking but the bed side lamp is enough for reading. There are plenty of electrical outlets. The wi-fi is included and works pretty well. The safe gave us a lot of trouble…it is large enough for a laptop but it is placed in a high cabinet out of my reach. At five feet nothing, I know I am below average…but, it could be better located. My six feet husband had to reach everything for me. Further, the instructions to input your combination are not accurate and we set it off. We had to call the front desk. The bellman arrived quickly and resolved the problem.
The bathroom is a little dated with the plastic enclosure. But, it worked well with good water pressure and constant temperature. The big towels are good and soft. The hairdryer works well.
The included breakfast is quite nice. There is a lot of variety; including sparkling wine, hot chocolate, fresh milk, yogurts, cheese, cold cuts, fresh tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers. There are a lot of breads and rolls. The hot foods are great especially with the yummy Slovenian sausages. We had a much better experience when we arrived early before the crowd.

Fantastic stay. No negatives at all. Beds were super comfortable, breakfast had enough variety to keep everyone happy. Though they tend not to replace certain items as it gets closer to closing time.

Location couldn't be better.

We stayed there while traveling through Ljublijana and were very pleased with the overall experience. The room was very comfortable, with great bed and very silent. It is in the center of town and has a parking (although for secure parking you have to pay an extra 18 euros... a bit pricey...). The staff was exceptionally helpful and nice and the breakfast absolutely great! I highly recommend this hotel and I will be using it again for sure. The room and interior of the hotel could use a bi of renovation though....

I booked the hotel not expecting too much having stayed in a “normal” Best Western a few weeks before. The “Premier” version is so much better. All the staff I met were friendly and helpful. The room (641) had a super view of the castle, although I think only rooms 634-641 have such a view due to buildings in the way for other rooms. The room was fairly small, but fine for me. Comfortable bed, fast wifi, lots of hot water…what more could you want? The buffet breakfast was amazing, plenty of choice, and a free a la carte menu if you wanted a proper meal rather than the buffet (I ordered the eggs benedict – very tasty). The spa area was a little odd though, with it being a unisex area, and the showers without curtains overlooking the “relaxing area”. The minibar was very overpriced, but there is a Spar shop downstairs. The location is nearly unbeatable for central Ljubljana. I’d definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Rooms 634-641 have super views of the castle. Same rooms on the 5th might have a similar view. Other...

We had a very pleasant stay here on Christmas eve, The room was clean although not as spacious as we like.
The staff is friendly and the bar has a very nice selection of Slovenian wines and very affordable prices.
We had dinner in the restaurant and were very pleased with the quality of the food and service.
This hotel is right in the center of the city, a block from the town square and not far from the train station.
