“Great business hotel”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

I stayed in the Grand Hotel Union-Business while on a business trip to Ljubljana. The hotel is a great choice, located less than 5minutes walk from the historical centre. Rooms are very spacious and very well equipped and decorated. All the necessary amenities that will make you feel comfortable and also allow you to work are available. The level of cleanliness is also very good. I had no noise problems but some colleagues who were staying close to the elevators complained about noise during the night. Breakfast was very nice with a great variety of products. The staff is generally efficient but they don't seem very friendly or happy with their jobs. Finally, this hotel, as a part of a complex that also includes the Grand Hotel Union-Executive, is a good choice for business meetings but seems like a labyrinth with long corridors, up and down stairs etc.

The hotel is well located; room spacious and clean with all necessary equipment. Big desk to work provided. Breakfast food OK. One minus: the heating/air conditioning were making noise and there was no option to turn it off. Also the temperature was quite high with no possibility to lower it down, but there was possibility to open windows/balcony. No view and the building itself does not look anything special from outside. I would recommend for business trips like mine

This hotel was very nice. Staff was very polite and friendly. The rooms were clean, lots of bathroom amenities, free wi-fi and just very nice in general. The breakfast buffet each morning had everything you could want. My family and I were very impressed. There were even mints on the pillows!

Great location too! Two blocks from the main square!

I stayed in this hotel for 4 nights on a business trip to Ljubljana in November. The hotel is in a good position, very close to the old town and central to everything. I was allocated a room on the 8th floor which was spacious and well equipped with fridge, safe, mini bar, tea and coffee making facilities and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in, in a hotel. I also had a large balcony with a fabulous view of Ljubljana and surrounding mountains. The staff in the hotel were helpful and friendly and nothing was too much bother. Breakfast was included with my room and it was an amazing spread and well worth it. I had one evening meal in the hotel and it was probably the best meal I had during my visit. The food was lovely, well presented and the restaurant staff were polite and helpful and made you feel special.
There are also leisure facilities in the hotel and free wifi also available throughout. I would highly recommend this hotel for either business or pleasure.

Room Tip: Higher rooms will have a better view of the city and surrounding mountains. I was on 8th floor and...

Despite the simple hall and welcome desk, this hotel is quite good for business purposes.

Located in the city heart, is close to shopping and restaurant area.

Wide rooms, good wifi service and fashion furniture allow people to have rest or to work without pain.

Good breakfast buffet with minute ready omelettes.

Grand old hotel based in great location just yards from the main sites of Ljubljana. Very pleasant common rooms, and reception, staff on front desk are friendly. Other staff (bar/breakfast) a bit surly, barman effectively hid behind TV on the bar to avoid eye contact.

Breakfast is ok, nothing special 'egg station' guy could only do 1 thing at a time (And makes very poor omelettes).

Room was clean and adequate but very very hot, Aircon would not work (im guessing turned off at source).

Room Tip: Ask for one with Aircon!

For me, the hotel's location was convenient about one block from the Triple Bridge. The buffet breakfast was although it was in the neighboring Gran Union Hotel "Executive." Also in the "Executive" property was a very nice bar/lounge which had very good snacks and the Lasko beer.

It didn't bother me too much that many services (breakfast, lounge, and printer - for printing out airline boarding pass) were in the "Executive" section instead of the "Business" section. It did seem strange the availability to print out airline boarding passes was lacking in the "Business" hotel - perhaps the hotel's name is a misnomer as the "Executive" property is more suited for business travelers. To me, this wasn't a major point of angst, but it could irritate other business travelers.

The hotel's desk staff was always very helpful and friendly. As a single traveler, the room was spacious, comfortable, and clean.

Highly recommend this hotel.
