“Excellent service and hospitality!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

We stayed in the Lev hotel (meaning Lion) as our last night in Slovenia. It was amazing. from the moment we stepped in we were welcommed by the reception staff, upgraded to a suite were escorted to a lovely, huge room which was clean and comfortable. the hotel about 5 minutes walk from the main shopping street and 10 minutes walk to the river and lovely old town. Parking is availble at the hotel at a price of 9/14 Euro (above/ below ground) and it is an excellent solution for coming to Ljubliana with a vehicle.
we highly recomend this hotel for staying in Ljubliana.

My family and I stayed at Hotel Lev for 2 nights and really enjoyed our experience. The staff was very helpful and friendly, always willing to accommodate you. Asmid (I think was his name) was the manager we chatted w/a lot at breakfast and was very sweet. It's about a 10 min. walk to the center of town. I highly recommend the Lolita bakery to anyone, but especially if you are Gluten Free (Flourless choc. cake!) It's right in the main square on Cankarjevonabrezje. Our room was great and spacious, two tvs (if they aren't working you need to unplug and plug back in - trick we learned by the staff helping), two phones, huge bathroom. There was no pool, although you could use a pool of their sister hotels, but we didn't get around to it. Great place and highly recommend it to any traveler!

On arrival, hotel has upgraded us from a normal double room to executive suite with no extra charge. Room was really good and comfortable.
TV wasn't working but got fixed within 10 minutes after I called service.
Location is good around 5 minutes walk from the street where all the action is happening.
As I understood it is the only 5 star hotel in the city.
We have taken the package with breakfast, coming from Dubai it was a big difference if you will compare the variety and quantity of the offered items.

We have rented the car but wasn't parking it in the hotel, (hotel charges 9 euros for outdoor parking and 14 for indoor), you can easily find parking closed to the hotel which is free from 6pm - 8am.

I would suggest to stay.

We stayed for 2 nights. The TV did not work in the first room we had. The staff immediately upgraded us to a better room. The end of the hall room was very spacious, large bathroom and fast Internet. There was a minibar and good A/C ( sometimes hard to find in Europe). The breakfast had everything you could think of on the buffet--lots of fresh fruit, cereals, eggs, pastries, juices, etc. The wait staff was very attentive. We really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: We had room 920!

I had a tough time choosing a hotel in Ljubljana: we were bringing a rental car, so we needed somewhere with easy parking; but I like to stay in places where we can get a feel for the local culture. Hotel Lev actually turned out to be ideal. It is right on the edge of the old town, just a block away from the ring road, and thus very easy to find. We arrived at 4 a.m. after being stuck in monstrous traffic jams, and it was a relief to be welcomed by the professional, smooth reception at Hotel Lev. Parking underground was convenient (although we never really figured out how the pass system works, but it was easy to get the Hotel to buzz us out every time). Free wifi was a nice touch. The bed was the most comfortable one I've slept on in months - nothing like the hard mattresses typical of Europe! The soundproofing was excellent - we didn't hear a peep from the hallway or from any other rooms. Breakfast was *to die for*. I already miss the buffet, which included North American-style eggs, bacon, and sausage, along with Slovenian delicacies. I agree with previous reviewers that the decor leaves something to be desired - light maroon and blue are not a favourite colour combination of mine - but the outstanding service and friendly atmosphere more than made up for it. We actually loved Ljubljana so much that we added an extra day on to our stay, and the hotel generously charged us the third night at the same (astonishingly low) rate that I had gotten by booking early on the website.

Fronk desk staff was extremely friendly. We forgot our cash (700 euro) and passports in the safe, fortunately they went to check and keep everything intact for us. Breakfast was scrumptious with lots of fresh fruits, bread, cake, hot food etc..Room is small but comfortable. We had a very nice sleep. Location was very convenient too only 5 mins walk from the old town.
