Reviewed January 1, 2013

Lying about 3 mins walk from the main square and with a view of Ljubljana Castle lies the City Hotel. The name tells you as much as you need to know, it's in the city and its a hotel, nothing more. The rooms are clean, large enough and ours had a good little balcony with a view of the castle. There are no coffee facilities and hot water was variable, but it is very handy for the city. Breakfast, though, was absolutely fabulous and very varied; cereals, cold meats, cooked Slovenian rice and veggie burgers, coffees, juices, breads, cheese, yogurts, fruit, have I missed anything? Oh yes, pancakes, croissants, nutty chocolate spread. There are prettier hotels in Ljubljana, there are posher hotels too, but the city hotel did us fine.

Room Tip: Get one with a balcony, they're on the corner of the hotel and therefore larger, higher floors w...

We stayed for 3 nights as part of our Xmas visit to europe. Fantastic location for the old town and restaurants, very friendly staff. Breakfast buffet was also very good indeed - a lot of variety. My only caveat was the size of the room - they are very small - nothing like the photographs (no surprise I guess) - so if room size may be a concern do take heed. Get a superior room. We would book this Hotel again as we intend to return, but would definitely upgrade to a better room. The whole experience in Ljubljana was very positive indeed - we had a great time and the accomodation certainly contributed to this.

Room Tip: Don't book a basic room - too small.

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in early December 2012. Would recommend it to others due to location and value.

Liked:
- location and price; two blocks from train station and old city (triple bridge)
- free WiFi and great breakfast buffet
- staff very friendly and helpful (everyone spoke English - but not really a surprise as it seems everyone in Slovenia speaks English)

Need to improve:
- modernize the rooms - TV mounted on the wall was tiny and room somewhat barren, especially for a three star hotel


Not sure about the gym, did not ask if it even exists ...

Spent a weekend here on a trip to Ljubljana. Efficient friendly service, nice room, free wi-fi. Only a short walk into the centre of the old town. Very good breakfast buffet. Had a light supper in restaurant on the night of arrival. Very good service and good value. 'Smart' key card system takes you to your floor on touching sensor in the lift, and room entry with a touch on the door sensor. No awkward slots to fiddle with.

Efficient minimilist hotel with everything we needed for a good price. Just need to replace those awful and inefficient shower curtains for some glass doors as the bathroom floor gets all wet otherwisen. He night waiter with the big white moustache is too rude. Breakfast buffet was very good.

I can certainly say that my stay at the city Hotel, Ljubljana, was pleasant and most of all comfortable. First and foremost, the reception staff are well-trained, customer friendly and ready to help with information. The rest of the service is all good but especially the varied breakfast. The room was very clean, spacious enough and had everything I needed for a good stay. As for the location, one could hardly ask for anything more central and more convenient when everything else is considered. When I return to Ljubljana, I would have no qualms about booking here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
City Hotel is located in the very heart of Ljubljana and is an excellent choice for both business guests and tourists to discover the charms of Ljubljana and Slovenia. It has a wonderful view of Ljubljana Castle and the city cathedral, and an ideal location just a stone’s throw from the historic old town. This pleasant hotel among the vibrant city inns, shops, and attractive historical buildings offers local Slovenian and international cuisine as well as a state-of-the-art congress center. The Jože Pučnik international airport is only 25 km from the hotel, and the main railway and bus station is only 400 m away. The hotel is easy to access from all of the city’s major roads; once in the city, you simply follow the blue hotel signs. Ljubljana’s City Hotel is the successor to the venerable Štrukelj Hotel, which opened in 1907. The current hotel excels in its friendly staff, the warmth of its rooms, and a broad range of services found at an excellent location in the very city center. City Hotel has 201 rooms, three luxury suites, an underground garage, a conference center with four meeting rooms, a library, a terrace, an Internet corner, a restaurant, and a bar. City Hotel’s complete makeover concluded with its opening in September 2007. The “basic” and “standard” rooms were renovated, and the “superior” rooms were moved to a completely new part of the hotel. All of the rooms use a card-locking system and all of them have free Internet access. ... more   less
