“Modest and well run hotel for business people and tourists alike”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Central Hotel is tremendously convenient to the old town centre, to public transit, to restaurants, and to nearby parks. It is reminiscent of 3-star and 3.5-star hotels all over Europe: clean, safe, comfortable. Everyone speaks English of course, and hotel staff understand very well the usual expectations of North American and western-European visitors. The price is right; it's usually possible to have 30-45 per cent discounts with a little haggling.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet.

Very clean room. Excellent breakfast. Excellent location. Very friendly staff. Comfortable bed. Just a little hard to find if you are using a gps. The bellman will park your car underground for 19 euros.

We stayed in the hotel one night only, thankfully. We asked for a non-smoking room. The room, linens and hallways smelled of cigarette smoke. There was dried urine on the toilet seat, hair on the floor. The beds were old and not comfortable. The sheets were rough. It should be a 2 star hotel.
All of the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was quite nice; they even offered champagne. The bar is cute and the staff in there also were friendly.
Our room was on the first floor facing the police department. We heard no street noise, which was nice.

This hotel is convenient for the city centre. The rooms are good and clean, the bed is comfortable. There is a good buffet breakfast that was included in my room rate.There is free WiFi.

Why do I therefore rate this hotel as poor? Quite simple - the central hotel describes itself as a four star business hotel. One of the essential requirements for this grade is availability of evening meals, so that you do not have to go out if you need to work. The only food on offer at the Central Hote in the evening is sandwiches and ice cream, and the sandwiches are pre-made (and if they run out, there is nothing). Across the road, there are fast food outlets for pizza and kebabs, but that is not what you expect from a four star business hotel.

The Central Hotel should not claim to be what it is not. If it had given itself three stars and not claimed to be a business hotel, I would probably rated it as 'very good'. If that is what you are looking for, do not be put off by this review.

The Hotel is in a strategic location, very near to the City Center and within walking distance to the Bus Interchange.
The staff are extremely friendly, helpful and making the guests feeling very welcome.
I had a single room and is adequately equipped with safe-lock, television, fridge except there is no coffee making facility which is a downside.
The breakfast was very good and a wide range to choose from.
There is a convenient store besides it which makes shopping readily accessible. However it closes early at 7pm !! Across the road there is also a Kebab and Pizza fast food store when you need a quick snack.
I will definitely go back to them again should I visit Ljubljana in the future.

If you don't want the bells and whistles then this is the place to stay. Don't take this as a negative. We were hardly in the hotel because Ljubljana in summer is better spent outside. Hotel room size was adequate. Everything is basic 3 star. The good points, close to city centre, nice breakfast, staff friendly and very helpful. Nothing was too hard, very hospitable. Negative, I did have a squeaky bed! I will definitely return to Ljubljana and to the Central Hotel. Oh yeah! You are able to use the facilities at the Grand Union, like the pool etc....if you have time.
