Best Western Premier Hotel Slon
Ranked #8 of 31 Hotels in Ljubljana
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 12, 2011

I love Slovenia and Ljubjana is a gem. Hotel Slon is excellent as a base in the capital city. This is so NOT the Best Western experience you are used to in North America. BW is completely different in Europe and this property is the best example of that. This is truly a 4 star property by North American standards and there are not many hotels in this price range in Europe that this can be said about.

If you are looking for a centrally located hotel at a reasonable price, Hotel Slon is where you must stay. From this spot you don't need a car rental to explore the city as everything is within walking distance in the city centre. The old town is pretty much down the street with Presenev Trg, the castle, the three bridges, the spectacular central church, the open air market and totally modern shopping all within walking distance.

I have been to Ljubljana many times but this was my first stay at Hotel Slon and I would go back in a heart beat. The rooms are fabulous with very Euro styled touches, the bathroom is what I expect of properties in resort areas and the complimentary breakfast is a wow! Let me tell you, it is just phenomenal the spread they have with REAL food! Not just danishes, toast and coffee; oh no, you get a spread that is unbelievable! When you get assorted fruit platters and cold cuts - with prociutto and unique cheeses - you cannot go wrong. The price of the room is worth the complimentary breakfast!

The staff all speak English and when you have jetlag and want to check in online, the two computers they have in a nook off the lobby are great. I spent every morning at 3am not sleeping checking out my emails and catching up with what was going on in the world.

The restaurant/pub on the property is excellent as well. The service is exemplary and the drinks are great. Can't speak too much to the food because I just sat at the outdoor tables catching up with friends drinking. It isn't cheap though. This city no longer is what it once was for prices - quite comparable to North America now but the surroundings make it worth the expense.

When I go back, I will stay at Hotel Slon. Truly and excellent spot from which to explore the city.

Hotel is in a great location for sightseeing, and is easy to drive to (has valet parking, don't need or want car in town). Seemed a mix of business and tourists. Rooms were of good quality. Breakfast buffet was better than average. Overall, the hotel was not a "wow", but it was a solid and comfortable place to stay for our 2 nights in Ljub.

We spent 1 night here as a transit accomodation on our way to Tuscany. I booked the room by phone and it was correct with the valet parking service too.
The hotel can be found in the center of the town, go by car and leave it at the garage, because the main attractions you can reach on foot.
The room is average with quality L'Occitane amenities and cafe maker, so there are some extras for the guests.

We were happy with our stay. We only had one night in Ljub. Hotel is 15 walk from train station and easy to find. It is in a good spot on edge of old town which is the main place to spend time particularly on a short visit.

Slon is located 15 minutes walk from the train station and about 3 minutes to the central sight seeing area. Our room was on the fifth floor on the side of the hotel next to the main road and it was still quite noisy; best to get a room away from the road if you want some quiet. We should have thought about this as earplugs were provided in the bedroom. The room safe was placed at floor level resulting in having to lie on the floor to programme the numbers!

Service in the bar was good.

Breakfast was a zoo. There were not enough tables for guests and there was no queing system. Instead one had to wait for a table to become free, sit down and then wait for it to be cleared. Not enough staff on duty.

Check in and check were both efficient and polite.

Room Tip: Away from the main road.

Hotel in the centre of the city. Had bad luck and got a room with a terrible smell. The next morning were offered another room. Value for money was not in balance. Staff friendly.
Renovation works (noise in the early morning!), which we were confronted with when we arrived, about thes works nothing was mentioned on the internet.
