The reason for my writing this letter is to inform you about a very positive experience after having stayed at Grand Hotel Union Executive in Ljubljana.
In the afternoon of Friday the 16th of August 2013 my wife and I called the reception and I reported that we had left behind us € 1.000 hidden inside a brochure on the table of room 451.
After three hours we received a call from one of the employees who told us that he had found our money after a very thorough and laborious search.
WE were very happy, we thanked him and a few days later the amount was put into our bank account.
We would like to thank all the staff for their cooperation and integrity.

I was expecting something a little grander, given the beautiful picture of the grand hotel, but in reality this is like 3 hotels in one. There is the original with original rooms, the executive with very business like rooms and then the business. We stayed in the executive wing. We had a room on a high floor with a great view. The room was smaller but very efficient. We also had a balcony. My favorite thing was the super air conditioning. It was a heat wave when we were there so it was a huge relief to have it. The breakfast was very good and included in the price. I was just confused the whole time we stayed there - 5 nights - about how come the lobby was so drab when clearly this is an amazing building.
We got a great price on our room and it was so close to everything. I would definitely recommend, just don't expect anything grand.

Room Tip: higher floors have great views

This hotel has fascinating architecture and reminds visitors of the Grand days past. The staff are very friendly and all speak good English. Well appointed rooms and ideally located for exploring the old city

I've been a couple of weeks ago with some friends for a city break and we've stayed here for two nights. The place is nice and clean, with a good positioning. The staff is friendly and helpful. Room had a decent size but the double bed was quite small. Bathroom was small also, but clean with good quality products available. The pool doesn't look as the one in the pictures - a lot smaller than what is being advertised and is not easy to access it - you have to with the elevator and on different corridors to reach it. Breakfast was good and fresh. Not so rich in variety and options, but quite good. The breakfast area has access to a terrace which is wonderful especially during sunny days.
Parking it is something that should be managed better - they are allowing more cars than available parking places.

Room Tip: Higher floors for the view

Terrific location! Breakfast included is of the highest quality and variety. Very nice rooms. Service is superior. Overall exceptional. Par king is extra. Even though it is not inexpensive, we think it is a bargain!

We stayed 3 nights at the Grand Hotel Union Executive - beautiful architecture, huge room with 2 queen beds, big bathroom. The location was excellent, just one block to Triple Bridge and about 5 blocks to the train and bus station. The breakfast buffet had a huge selection and was delicious. The wait staff was attentive. It rained while we were there and the reception desk was able to lend us umbrellas. I hope to return to Ljubljana again and stay here and would highly recommend the hotel to others.

Situated perfectly within the old town, The Union is above and beyond. Well worth spending a bit extra for such a great stay!

We have never received better service from hotel staff. Upon leaving Ljubjana, we realised we had left a bag of belongings at a local restaurant the previous evening. We explained the situation to Dejan at reception and he offered to phone the restaurant and post our belongings back to our address in England for no extra charge.

Thoroughly recommended.
