“directly in the center of Ljubljana”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

I was in Ljbuljana for a meeting. In the evening I had only a short spell time. Thanks to its favourable position a could see a little bit of the city. The rooms are really big and in spite of the great position of the hotel quiet. The staff was really friendly. The choice at the breakfast was really big. For me the perfect Hotel for a short or longer, busniess or personal stay at Ljubljana.

All the five star reviews are right!
This is a gem of a hotel and worth every euro to stay here.
The service is fabulous, and staff so friendly and helpful.
The hotel is spotless.
All this and the best location in town, do not stay anywhere else! Unless they are full then the next best in the sister hotel next door !

Room Tip: Ask for recently renovated rooms, but all are good

The GH Executive is a nice hotel built in a style that you migh love or hate, Art Nouveau.

But the style does not matter when service is pro active, smiling and efficient.

It does not matter, when the TV is large enough for you to enjoy the news, when Wifi if free of charge and works perfectly and when the overall maintenance level is such that many western hotels should take example.

I enjoyed the breakfast buffet which despite the again Art Nouveau (and slightly outdated) style, the service team is carefully watching over you, the proposed food is tastefful and in sufficient choice and where you have nothing but three choices of regular filter coffee (including organic).

For the fittest, the small swimming pool has a great view from the top floor over the castle.

Room Tip: The fittest or more stressed will choose the Business rooms, rather than the Executive. Business...

Excellent location for old town centre for Christmas activity. All staff were cheerful and welcoming and extremely willing to help in a variety of ways with no expectation of tipping. The rooms were comfortable and quiet and cleaned unobtrusively daily: rooms and bathrooms were of ample size with sufficient drawer/wardrobe space but we would have preferred a bath and shower, rather than just a shower. The spa has a reasonably sized pool and saunas. The restaurant, breakfast room, bar and coffee shop had good food but an unchanged rather limited menu over a week with no concessions to Christmas festivities.

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.
