“Very nice hotel close to train station and historic old town”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

Very nice property about a ten minute straight level walk from train station. Had a bit of difficulty finding it as we arrived after dark . We wandered around for a few minutes and asked a couple of people. Funny thing was we were standing right in front of it, but there was no signage at eye level. We were below the canopy and the name of the hotel was above, out of view. Good for a chuckle upon reflection.
We stayed for 2 nights during third week of March. The hotel was very quiet... not many guests. The front desk staff were pleasant and helpful. The rooms were clean, and very modern. Beds were comfortable. Nice showers. The breakfast buffet had many hot and cold choices and you could also order custom made items. Felt totally safe walking about after dark. Plus the police station is right across street from hotel.
We loved Ljubljana which we found to be a buzzy energetized little city. Charming riverside bars and cafes. Friendly people. Lots and lots of young people /students out enjoying the spring sunshine. The hotel is a short 5 or 10 minute stroll from the downtown historic area and about the same distance from the lovely park and art gallery.
We would go back to Ljubljana in a heartbeat, and would choose this property again.

I stayed there for a night while visiting Ljubljana. The rooms are quite comfortable, wifi included in the hotel fare, the breakfast was from 7 to 11am so it gives you a lot of time to go for a late breakfast. The options is the usual things: different types of cheese and ham, thick sliced grilled bacon, yogurt, bread, toast, coffee, milk, you can also ask for a fresh espresso, milk, cereals, the offer was quite good.
The staff was really friendly since me and my friends did the check in. the location its perfect.
The bed and pillows were ok, the bathroom a bit small although my friend's bathroom was bigger.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in the top floor, the view is quite nice.

Very well located hotel. Very friendly staff and good beds. Everything very clean. The breakfast could have been better but it was okay. I would go there again.

Room Tip: some rooms are much smaller then other. Rooms no. x070 and x060 are very small.

Stayed during the week of the hockey tournament and couldn't even find a room before I arrived in Ljubljana. Central is part of the Union brand. I believe it is the bottom of the 3 tiers in terms of quality but it's perfectly in line with the economy tier it is supposed to be out of the three. My room was a bit small but I was very pleased with my stay after the staff continuously went out of their way to improve my stay whenever possible.

I paid 85 euros for a standard room and thought this was excellent value. There isn't a huge difference between this hotel and the City Hotel (round the corner) and I don't know why one is three and the other four star. Breakfast is better at the City (and certainly quieter but maybe people like loud Motown with their grilled vegetables - I didn't). This was my only criticism. The room was well appointed, everything including the free wi-fi worked and I would stay here over the City if the price was the same. The 'elevator' was made by Schindler so I guess that makes it Schindler's lift. The Central's sister hotel is the much bigger Union and Central guests are welcome to use the pool or sauna there. I didn't but I will next time.

They sell it like 4 star hotel... but it is not. They had to change my room once, because the first one had a problem in the bathroom (flushing didnt work) and the ventilation system gave into the room a bad smell. Poor brekfast. They don't have wifi, but have free LAN connection in the rooms. A good point is the location.. 200m of the pedestrian area - city center.

Room Tip: Check the room star quotation.. I think they have real 4 stars rooms and poor 4 star rooms...

Good 3* hotel perfectly placed to the centre of town. The staff are extremely friendly/helpful. The rooms are basic but fine for weekend trip.
