We just spent 3 nights and 4 days at the Hotel Lev in Ljubljana. The hotel was perfect for our needs and we totally enjoyed our stay. Yes, there was constant "drizzle" for the whole four days, but that didn't dampen the spirits of the people of the city, or our spirits for that matter. We really made use of the hotel umbrellas to visit the national museum (fabulous), the national cathedral (awe inspiring), the Ljubljana Castle (great views), and to spend nights down by the river enjoying the traditional hot mulled wine. (Don't expect to get tipsy on this concoction, since I think it is mostly apple cider. But it is perfect for a cold, damp evening by the river with the hundreds of other people enjoying the Christmas lights.) Back to the hotel. We were given an upgraded executive suite (unsolicited) at the same price as a regular double room. Of course, this is smart business for the hotel, if the room is available. (Why don't the airlines do the same???) Our first day, since we were headed to an interview after being half starved by an airline which will remain nameless, we wanted a quick lunch. We went to the hotel dining room and had the complete lunch menu of the day for a reasonable price. The soup and pork roast was very tasty and went a long way toward satisying our pork cravings, since we live in the middle east, where it is not available. The included breakfast each day was excellent. The service at this hotel is always friendly and personal. The breakfast would benefit from having an egg chef for custom orders, but this does not take away from the overall quality. Today for lunch I had a lamb roast that was expertly prepared with a roasted bell pepper stuffed with herbed cottage cheese, followed by the house special dessert: brule la tonka (English cream and chocolate mousse.) Overall it was a wonderful stay in a beautiful hotel and a beautiful city.
