Birokrat Hotel
Ranked #20 of 31 Hotels in Ljubljana
Reviewed May 26, 2013

The hotel is located about 10 minutes from the city centre. Do not let that put you off staying here. There is a bus stop located just outside the hotel and you can purchase a rechargeable bus ticket at reception.

The room was very spacious, with a large wardrobe, comfortable beds, large flat screen tv, a desk, drawers, luggage rack, heater and a mini bar. The bathroom had a large shower, cupboard and plenty of different sized towels were provided. We had a room that faced the main road, but it was not noisy at all. The wifi in the room was fast and never cut out.

The breakfast was delicious with heaps of food choices. Some of the options were; bread, croissants, pastries, fruit, yoghurt, sliced meats, cheese, cereal, muesli, omelette and sausages. Drink options included fruit juice, tea and coffee.

The staff were very friendly and very helpful in providing information about the city. The lobby also has a large selection of tourist information.

I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Book early.

Booked via Tripadvisor and arrived late with 3 kids. From the minute we have arrived to the hotel everything we asked was handled immediately with a smile.
Big new and nicely decorated rooms but service is above all.

The Hotel Birokrat (meaning Bureaucrat!) is a pleasant modern hotel some 4km from the centre of Ljubljana. Its staff are extremely helpful and all appear to speak good English. There are limited facilities, though guests have free access to a nearby Fitness Club. The hotel is on a main road with good bus lines to the city centre 10mins away. Breakfast is a generous buffet and there is also an attractive bar/ restaurant area. My stay was brief but I would say the hotel would be fine for both leisure and business travellers.

We are lucky to have chosen Birokrat Hotel for our three-week stay in Ljubljana. Convenient location, very spacious rooms and apartments well equipped with all modern facilities. Very professional and hard-working manager of the hotel who does his best to satisfy the needs of the guests. We've stayed in many places in Europe and can say that Birokrat hotel meets the highest standards of the best hotels in European capital cities. The rooms are air-conditioned and you can regulate the temperature, when it is cold outside you can maintain a very pleasant warm temperature in the room. Beds are comfortable, blankets are warm, kitchen is well-equipped. The hotel offers breakfast (very tasty and varied, and also gluten-free on request) service of a porter, cleaning every day, elevator/lift, and a special taxi service at a reduced price. The staff is very friendly and nice, and speak good English. It is a perfect place to stay for everyone - business travelers, families with children, mature people.
All in all, it was a wonderful stay in Ljubljana thanks to the hotel staff!

Very comfortable hotel.Our triple room was large and well appointed,and the bathroom very functional. Although not located in the center,transportation was made easy and inexpensive thanks to the hotel agreement with the local taxi company. It was very nice to be able to take bikes from the hotel and ride along the river which is close by. The hotel staff was always very helpful.

This is a great hotel. Not in the centre of town so nice and quiet, even though my room was right on the main road. My room was huge and spotlessly clean every day. Lots of comfortable pillows and good air conditioning which was not too noisy to sleep with it on.
Free WiFi in the room. I had my laptop with me as I was working but there was the facility to borrow a laptop if needed.
Breakfast was lovely and fresh. Lots of choice, gentle music in the restaurant, not too loud.
All the staff were very friendly and helpful.
The hotel is well insulated for sound. I didn't hear anyone else for my whole stay. I could have believed I was the only person staying there if there had not been so many people at breakfast each morning.
I highly recommend this hotel if you don't mind having a 10 minute drive into town and want somewhere quiet.

My booking at this hotel was really a last minute choice as my usual hotel was totally sold out for that night and I ended up here not knowing what to find.

Location: First thing is that this is for sure more recommended for business travellers more than leisure travellers. It is not in the center of Ljubljana, even though you can get from reception the bus ticket to go downtown, so it is better if you have your own car. For me it was anyway a very good location being just beside the highway, very easily accessed to and from. The district is quiet, residential, nothinbg special.

Hotel: first of all they have a large free parking area so if you drive there you don't have to worry for your car. reception is open 24 hours. My room was literallu HUGE with a couch area, big bathroom, clean linen and towels. WI-FI perfectly working in the room for free. My room was facing the car park in the back and not the main street so it was also exceptionally quiet. Wide comfy bed and pillows. Not many amenities available. There was a coffee machine but no coffee. Overall the room was great though. Brealfast is included and served downstairs. Pretty good choice for standard continental breakfast.

If you don't really need to be stuck in the very center of Ljubljana, actually this is to be considered as a good alternative.

Check our fast and smooth and they even gave me a gift
