Very comfortable hotel in very central location yet close to bus and train stations, car hire locations and all sights. Very helpful staff, unceasingly polite. Very good English spoken. Spacious room with all useful facilities but as common in European hotels no coffee making facilities. Breakfast has everything - cooked, cereals, cold meats, cheeses, pancakes and even Slovenian champagne. Hotel dinner restaurant, however, expensive and not value for money. Tasteless pictures on a plate.

Room Tip: We had 721. Good room with view of mountains. Very quiet. Ask for non smoking as some are smoking...

The hotel staff was very friendly and very accommodating, speaking perfect English and helping us out with suggestions around town and using their business center. The room was comfortable and well kept, as were the public areas and the restaurant, which featured an incredible breakfast buffet. The hotel is just a block from Preseren Square and the Triple Bridge, right in the heart of town.

I spent 7 days in this hotel in November, 2012. Really good hotel with convenient location in a downtown of Ljubljana. its very near to three bridges and beautiful market.

the hotel staff is very courteous and helpful and English speaking, this is really helpful for foreigner who don't know Slovenian Language. They provide all services very fast and just perfect. I really enjoyed the breakfast and ambiance of the hotel. I really enjoyed the activities happening in the hotel specially couple dance in Tuesday and Saturday evening.

Room Tip: higher floor is very good to stay and are quieter

Central location and beautiful building give this hotel a great potential to be the best in Ljubljana.
Pity it's a little bit wasted by the bland room equipment and noisy AC.
Don't take me wrong - rooms are clean and well maintained, but are neither modern nor flair - just without any character and the used materials are not the high-end.

Otherwise:
- good breakfast - lots of space (shared with Hotel Union Business), wide selection, attentive staff
- clean and quiet
- free, high performance Wi-Fi from Ruckus Wireless
- quick check-in/check-out
- reasonable pricing

Worth a stay for your busienss needs.
A good base for visiting Ljubljana.

I spent four days here at a business conference in the hotel. Service and accomodations were first-rate. The staff speaks perfect English which is very convenient for anyone who does not speak Slovene (all but about 3 million people in the world most of them in Slovenia). They offer an extensive breakfast buffet with good choices. Lunches and coffee break snacks were excellent, especially the delicious Slovenian pastries.

The location is outstanding. One block from the central square from where one can explore the old town and the historic bridges and castle. In the opposite direction only a 10-minute walk away is the Ljubljana bus and train station with convenient service throughout Slovenia and good connections outside.

Minor inconvenience is hotel layout that is a bit confusing because of the building connection with their sister hotel GHU Business (not reviewed here). A minor annoyance is the hotel airport shuttle offer which is expensive compared to other shuttle service available. Better yet use the city bus line for only 4.10 euros.

This place has, most of all, a superb location in the centre of the town. The service was good, the room was spacious and well maintained and the pool was a nice plus!! I strongly recommend this place.
