“Well located business hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

I spent only one night in City Hotel, hence I really have just the first impession. Before I came to Ljubljana, I checked the website of the hotel. I was surprised, when I saw the size of the room there. Later, when I arrived, I already understand why put there.

I came by car, and I could use the underground garage. It cost about 20€ per night, but it is normal. I arrived about 9pm, and I was alone, probably that is, why I get one really small room. It was not more than 15qm, and the bathroom was max.3qm. A huge cell-fan was over my bad, which was quiet unusual in one modern hotel. It was a double-bad in the room, so it seems to be a double-room, but I do not think, that there is enough place for two people. But anyway the night was quiet, because my room was faced for the court, and I could not hear noices from the corridor.

The breakfastroom was full at 7am, but there were lot of empty tables. I had to stand in line for the coffee, after for the eggs and it took long time.

I propose City Hotel for both, couples, and business travellers, but I suppose to check the type and the size of the room, before the reservation.

This perfectly located hotel is quite nice, seemingly newly renovated, with spacious room and bathroom (our was, at least, although I heard from others in our group that theirs had a spare bed squeezed in and only one place for a suitcase (in a double room). It was clean and comfortable but not well sound proofed to the hall.
However, the food was another matter. Breakfast was adequate but often ran out of choices; we sometimes had to wait a while for more. Dinner was terrible (we had brkf and dinner included): soups very watery, salad bar lacking and main meal worse. We also would have liked a jug of water on the table (juice machine, which also had a cold water dispenser, was turned off at dinner). Staff was very friendly. We would easily recommend this hotel but warn others to go elsewhere for dinner.

Room Tip: I don't know which rooms have the extra bed - ours did not and was nice and roomy, so the advice...

We were given a cramped room with small window opening onto internal glazed courtyard and we were told this was a superior room. We could not see outside and could not get fresh air. The room was pokey and smelly. One (elderly)waiter was insolent and ignored us despite there being only two other tables occupied during that period(9pm). This and the unhelpful attitude of the receptionist would put us off returning. Ljubljana on the other hand was delightful and well worth a visit.

The City Hotel is newly refurbished and in a very good central location. The breakfast was of a good standard with several vegetarian options. The rooms were modern and spacious. I would stay here again.

At 5 minutes walking distance from the center of town, you will find this hotel.
From outside it looks like nothing special, and even inside it does not look really fancy. But it is all up to 3 star level.
Our orangy toned room was just right in space and had a really good bed.
Breakfast was complete and plentyfull.
You can hire a bike for free.
There is a Europcar desk in the hotel, so hiring a car is very convenient.
Staff was friendly and helpful.
We were very happy with our stay.

I stayed for 2 nights in April 2014. The city hotel was less than a 5 minute walk from the main square and Cathedral. My room was on the 6th floor, large, pleasantly warm, clean and very orange. Orange carpet, orange curtains, orange walls and in the bathroom orange shower curtain and a part orange wall.
I found the bed comfortable and bed linen spotless - I slept well. The room was quiet despite overlooking the road at the front of the hotel - tho' the road isn't overly busy and being on the 6th floor helped.
The food was okay (we were half board) certainly plenty of choice for breakfast. The staff were mixed, some were friendly, others less so.

Room Tip: Different floors have different colour themes so if you don't like orange request another floor!

Dear “Elaine T”,
thank you for your review! We are glad to hear our hotel provided you with a good rest. We do encourage our guests to express their wish for a quiet room so we can reserve them a room in a higher floor. For really light sleepers we also have rooms that overlook the inner courtyard, where traffic noise cannot reach you. We hope to see you again and wish you all the best on your future trips!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
City Hotel is located in the very heart of Ljubljana and is an excellent choice for both business guests and tourists to discover the charms of Ljubljana and Slovenia. It has a wonderful view of Ljubljana Castle and the city cathedral, and an ideal location just a stone’s throw from the historic old town. This pleasant hotel among the vibrant city inns, shops, and attractive historical buildings offers local Slovenian and international cuisine as well as a state-of-the-art congress center. The Jože Pučnik international airport is only 25 km from the hotel, and the main railway and bus station is only 400 m away. The hotel is easy to access from all of the city’s major roads; once in the city, you simply follow the blue hotel signs. Ljubljana’s City Hotel is the successor to the venerable Štrukelj Hotel, which opened in 1907. The current hotel excels in its friendly staff, the warmth of its rooms, and a broad range of services found at an excellent location in the very city center. City Hotel has 201 rooms, three luxury suites, an underground garage, a conference center with four meeting rooms, a library, a terrace, an Internet corner, a restaurant, and a bar. City Hotel’s complete makeover concluded with its opening in September 2007. The “basic” and “standard” rooms were renovated, and the “superior” rooms were moved to a completely new part of the hotel. All of the rooms use a card-locking system and all of them have free Internet access. ... more   less
