“Not 5 Star”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

Average hotel where the room cleaning was haphazard at best, in my five night stay the sheets were never changed and the supplied toiletries were of a very poor quality.
Although the rooms have air conditioning the temperature never varied no matter what the setting or speed.
While phoning housekeeping to tell them my safe didn`t lock I picked up the Hotel questionaire they ask you to fill, it had already been filled by the previous guests who had made the comment that the safe had not been fixed for them either after repeated requests, they did fix it for me however but didn`t replace my questionaire.
On a positive note the breakfast was plentiful, varied and good.
Possibly it would merit a five star rating for the services provided but never for the quality of the rooms, average at best

A real business hotel, just outside the center of town. I would only recommend for business purposes.

My husband and I stayed at the Hotel Lev for two nights in August. It is very conveniently located about ten minutes walk from both the main bus station and the old city centre. I liked the location because on that particular weekend the city was hosting a festival and the centre was very noisy especially in the evenings where a basketball tournament was being held in the streets. However the hotel was far enough away from the noise so it did not disturb us and it was nice to be able to walk down and soak up the atmosphere but leave it all behind again when we had enough of it.
Service at the hotel was excellent. The reception staff all had excellent English and were very polite and helpful when it came to recomendations for eating out and where to go.
Our room was a standard double. It wasn't particularly spacious but I would say it is pretty standard compared to most European Hotels. It was perfectly clean and well appointed with all the usual things you come to expect in a hotel room.
The breakfast buffet was one of the best I've had with everything you could possible want from fruit, juices, cereals and all the usual breakfast fare plus pancakes both American and Slovenian style which were similar to our own Irish ones. I really could not fault the selection.
The hotel also has a spa and wellness centre but we did not use it so I cant comment on that.
The only fault I would have is that it somehow lacked any kind of atmosphere. I'm not really sure why. The Lobby area was large and open but there never seemed to be many people around. No one used the space for relaxing in and although there was a bar area off to the side it was always empty so you didn't really feel like hanging around there.
Overall, I would recomend this hotel if you want some place comfortable and convenient for a night or two but it is probable more suitable for business use rather than a weeks holiday.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Lev Hotel. Very well located near the center of the city. Our room was on the ninth floor with great views of the city and castle. The room was well renovated and very comfortable. The nice blinds made it pitch black during the night and we couldn't hear one noise coming from outside. We always had great service from the front desk. Breakfast was also very good.

Room Tip: ask for a room with castle view, they are overlooking a very quiet street.

Hotel Lev has five stars. It deserves them, particularly by Slovene standards although it is not the Ritz in Paris. We recommend it without any hesitation. It is clean and well furnished.. It has a good restaurant with courteous servers, offers a spectacularly varied and abundant buffet breakfast served at hours to suit any traveler, has completely comfortable rooms with extra pillows and internet connections, a business center for printing out boarding passes, and a gracious, helpful, English-speaking reception staff. It borders a busy street but the air-conditioning in summer stifles any noise. It's within l0-15 minutes walking distance of the train station which is also the inter-city and airport bus station. The principal sights are about l0 minutes walk away. A charming coaching inn, now a restaurant, the Gostilina Sestica, is about 5 minutes' walk away.
On your departure, the hotel will add your taxi fare to the airport (38 Euros in 2011) to your hotel bill and will order a taxi for you. Our driver even came early.

I'm staying at Lev for over 5 years now, once or two times per year. Lev is very good hotel, but it's not full 5 star experience. They don't have spa, gym or pool. Rooms which are not superior are quite old and they don't look like 5 star rooms. Also, most of the rooms are quite small. Even superior twin, for example.
Stuff is friendly and professional. Hotel is clean. Breakfast is quite good.
Location of the hotel is also very good. For me is the best possible since I have meetings only 50m away.
I recommend this hotel, but don't expect any miracles. It's very standard, basic hotel experience.
Price can be lower but you can find good deals over some booking sites.

This hotel is probably the most modern of the 4 stars or higher establishments in this city. Although it supposedly is the only 5 star hotel, I would rate it a 4. It is located in the middle of town, only a few minutes walk from the train station, and within walking distance to all the sights in town. During our four day stay we had a little problem with the electricity. It went out one morning for at least two hours (from about 5am to past 7am), and it was fortunate that our departure was not scheduled that day as it would have been a real mess. The hotel mentioned that this was not a normal situation and apologized. The breakfast which is included is sumptuous.
