“Friendly and good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014 via mobile

We stayed for two nights in this hotel. At first I thought the place was abandoned customer-wise, I did not see a lot of guests. It was only at breakfast that I noticed there were more people staying at the hotel.

The people were friendly. The rooms looked good and we got a free upgrade to a suit with two flat screen TVs. The breakfast was good and we were offered coffee and tea at the table.

Beste price/quality I ever had. 45 euro's a night for a 5 stars hotel is not bad.
Delicious breakfast and hotel staff that is willing to tell you more about the Slovenian Culture.
Parking is 15 euro's a day, but ask for public parking and they will give you a discount for 9 euro's a day.

Good value and price. This was clean, nice and little bit old hotel. This is 4-star hotel. Not much to catch 5-star rate. Rooms was spaceful with bath and good connections to drive everywhere. This is little far from city center. Breakfast room is small and not much choices in there compared to other good hotels. Nice beds and everything worked in the room. Suggest to this everyone if not needed to be very close to city center.

Dear “dominatorev”,

Thank you for your review on Tripadvisor and your recommendations.
I am glad you have been pleased with your accommodation despite finding some aspects that did not meet your expectations. Please be informed that Hotel Lev is a 4 star hotel since January 2014. Due to adaptation to market needs and hotel’s relative size to our small Ljubljana’s market, we decided to move the hotel to a 4 star category. Now, our goal is to become an excellent 4**** city center hotel with satisfied customers, who will love to return. We will continue upgrading our product, which at the same time needs to offer a good value for each guest. Having this in mind we will closely look into all of your comments. Please also be informed that our hotel is only a 5-minute walk away from the old center of Ljubljana, which positions the hotel at an excellent location.
Thank you again for sharing your experience, and we look forward to hosting you in the future.

Mr. Bogdan Lipovsek
General Manager

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel despite being run down. They rate this hotel 5 stars and that is totally misleading. Everything about it is a 3 plus from the buffet in the morning to the stained carpet in the hallway. The service was amazing and they are all very attentive and helpful.

The hotel is situated approx 5 mins form the old centre of Ljubljana. It's location is easy to access from the airport, ring road etc. The hotel has an under ground carpark and some very limited carparking at the front of the hotel. They charge 9€ per day to park at the front of the hotel and 14€ per day for the under ground car park.

The hotel reception staff were all very friendly and efficient. The room was very nice and had all the usual facilities. There was a great selection available for breakfast and the staff were always asking if you required and additional tea, coffee etc. The quality of the food etc was very good.

Highly recommended for a stay in Ljubljana.

The hotel is an old Soviet building about 5-10 minutes from the real centre of the shopping/restaurant district.

My room was really big with really comfortable beds and had two really good nights sleep while away on business.

The gym needs upgrading but at least they had one.

Breakfast was excellent and the service good. The hotel bar is on the small size but that wasn't a big problem since there are loads nearby.

I enjoyed my stay at this hotel but it's probably more a 3 1/2 star but that's good enough for me.
