“Absolutely Wonderful”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

I stayed for 4 nights in July. Overall, I HIGHLY recommend this hotel and would absolutely stay here again. My rating is based on the following:

1) VERY friendly and super helpful staff
2) Comfortable room: Great A/C and shower! VERY comfortable bed
3) Great location - walking distance to the sites - good food nearby
4) Great TV options - I know I didn't come here for TV but it rained one day and it was nice to have more options than CNN.

When I walked into the room I was impressed. This is a boutique style hotel. Very modern design - chic maybe. The room was large and the bed was extremely comfortable. I had a street side, castle view room. As a result, I did hear some street noise, but it didn't affect me at night - if you are sensitive, ask for a rear facing room.

What really impressed me was the service. The staff were extremely helpful in every way. They helped me with a last minute car rental. They parked the car and gassed the tank for me. I left at 5:30am and they made a box lunch for me since I was too early for breakfast. Oh, the minibar was free!

Breakfast was fine. Made to order eggs/omelette. The also had "pancakes" which I would desribe as crepes. Usual bread, cerals, fruit and cold cuts. Drinkable yoghurt and juices. Included in rate.

Tip: The A/C is controlled at the front desk, not your room. Call down if you need it adjusted. It worked great.

Tip: The DaBuDa (asian) and Foculus (pizza) were both great and a block away

Tip: It's a bit far to walk from the train station. Doable if you have one roller or a backpack

Booking: I booked this room at BOOKING.COM and got a good rate.

Excellent choice for Ljublana. Great location- between old(bridges cobbles etc and "new"- but "new" it should be noted is again fabulous old buildngs and very grand. Had the suite on top floor- circular bed, extremely spacious bathroom and very well appointed. Breakfast as one would expect beautifully presented and of a very high standard. Ate in the restaurant one night- just had pasta but that was very good indeed, tho' delivery a little slow. All the staff quite charming - excellent english, good reccos of other restaurants to visit, Reasonably dear by Slovenia standards but not by the City, and we found value for what you got. Deffo would return there if went for another visit.

Room Tip: Top floor suite worth the extra money

Location is a short walk from old city. We had a third floor room with view of the castle. If you are looking for old world charm, this is not the place for you. But if you like NYC ultra-contemporary chic you will love this. A small luxury boutique hotel with very contemporary feel awaits ou here. Breakfast was good. Overall Service was good. We will stay here again if we visit Ljubljana again.

We are a travel agency specialized in selling packages in Slovenia, Croatia and neighboring countries. ll our clients are very precious to us and our strength is focused on their maximal satisfaction. So, in April this year we received request for a 22 days tour (for a group of 27 persons) around Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia and Bulgaria. The client wanted the best hotels and insisted on hotel CUBO in Ljubljana (because it was ranked on 1st place on TripAdvisor). We contacted hotel immediately and booked and confirmed the rooms for the group. 10 days ago we sent hotel staff the Rooming list and were terrified with their answer: "We are so sorry to inform you that the virus "ate" our reservation system and we do not have anymore the rooms for your group. We sold them. So, we are willing to transfer your group to some other hotel." ????????????????? When somebody cares for his clients, knows very well that there is no any appropriated alternative to hotel which is on the 1st place of TripAdvisor..... And, it is a shame that such staff and managers work in tourism, a hospitality industry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have no words to express my disappointment.

Matevz, Manager at Hotel Cubo, responded to this review, July 31, 2012
We admit - it was completely our fault. It was indeed due to malfunction in reservation software, but this can be no excuse. Ufortunately, since we are a small hotel with only 26 rooms, we could not accomodate all the guests from this grup whose reservations was lost. Even when we make mistakes, we try to learn from them. In this case, we upgraded our booking software, chaged our backup procedures and intrduced processes that should ensure that something like that will not happen again.
We apologise again to the guests who were disappointed. We will strive to remain the #1 ranked hotel in Ljubljana with a hope that next time they visit Ljubljana, we will be their choice again.

Walking in our room for the first time was a WOW! Large, contemporary, King Bed AND mini-bar that is free (first time for everything). Quiet room. Service staff is wonderful, friendly and very helpful, even providing driving maps for us and suggestions....Breakfest was the best so far (been to Italy prior) and they will make your eggs anyway you want. Everyone greets you when you walk in the hotel like long lost friends. AND get this, we asked for an iron, the staff indicated 'no problem' or we can iron it for you....Everything was magnificant. We had no expectations but were so pleasantly surprised, we don't want to leave! This hotel is one year old, very close, maybe 2 blocks from the Old Town which is perfect. If driving, very easy to get to...and parking provided. Stay here!

Stayed at Cubo over an extended weekend earlier this summer.

The room we had was very big; it almost felt like a flat with a nice bathroom, separate toilet, enough closet space, three windows and generally speaking a lot of space.

Amenities in the bathroom were of high quality and the daily refurbishment of the minibar with water, cola, juice, chocolate bars was a nice treat!

Staff was friendly and accommodating helping us with cars/taxis, and sights.

Location is fantastic next to the old town.

Breakfast was one of the best I have had with coffee you like being served to the table and omelettes/pancakes etc made according to your wishes.

All in all one of the best hotels I have ever been to and highly recommended.
