“Great choice for travellers with a car”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

Located near the exit of the highway and not too far from the historic center of Ljubljana, Birokrat has everything you want from a hotel. Clean and big rooms, comfortable beds, standard breakfast, excellent service and a normal price. For those travelling with a car, the private parking is a big advantage since is not so easy to park in the center. Bus stop is just in front of the hotel and the reception can provide you with tickets to the city center. The bar in the ground floor even offers a place for smokers. Last but not least, the staff will answer to all your questions and will try to solve all your problems with a smile!

Hotel is located on Ljubljana ring and is nice place to stay if you are visiting Ljubljana. Staff is friendly everything is working well.

Price is OK, rooms are huge and new. You can take bus to the center of Ljubljana.
If you are traveling with family is perfect for kind because you can cook and use fridge.

I would recomend hotel for business travelers passing thru Ljubljana or families. You have also in close proximity big water park to use it in summer.

We had read the reviews posted prior to our visit and these proved to be all fair.

The one-bedroom apartment we had was probably the most spacious and best equipped of any apartment hotel we've stayed in (no stove in the kitchen though).

Clean, modern and attractive. Even the hallways and stairs were carpeted, adding to the lower noise ambiance.

All the staff were pleasant and helpful, especially the reception people.

The one debit feature was the noisy temporary, stand-alone air conditioner installed to overcome some kind of problem with the central aircon system. It had had only to two settings - loud and louder!

Why would any owner call there place th "Bureaucrat" (as it is in English)? The answer is that that is the name of a business software package developed by the Andersen Group who own the building and use it for IT training seminars. Well done!

We were happy with most aspects of our stay here, but have a couple of reservations. We had trouble finding good and affordable accomodation at short notice closer to the city centre, so chose this hotel because of the advertised frequent bus service direct to and from the city - this worked very well for us, the hotel provided (at a small cost) the bus passes we needed. There's really only one reasonable restaurant near the hotel (10 mins walk), but we ate in the city first night and tried the local restaurant second night - both recommended by the hotel, and both very good.

Like other reviewers, we found the in-room air conditioner extremely noisy, I agree with the comment that it sounded like a tractor. No way could we sleep with it turned on, luckily we were in a high room at the back of the hotel, so opened the window instead. We did get a bit of noise from the back streets early in the morning, but not as much as others apparently experienced with rooms facing the main road. Otherwise the room was fine.

I also agree with comments about the breakfast - limited choice, not enough tables indoors, and even though we arrived half way through the advertised period, most of the good food was finished. We did get some replenished, but only by asking and waiting.

Main desk staff were very helpful, even took control to help sort out an issue we had with our rental car (hired in another city). Also offered good advice on where to go and what to see and how to get there.

We had a second floor room at the back of the hotel. Tea and coffee facilities provided. Portable A/C unit was somewhat noisy but luckily we did not need it. The hotel staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. We had a hire car and the hotel had free parking in the grounds under a carport. The hotel was a fair way out of town but a frequent bus service which left from near the hotel door. Excellent bathroom.
