My husband is staying in this hotel regularly during his business trips and is talking about it in superlatives, so it was the first choice for our private trip in Ljubljana. But, I couldn´t be more disappointed. We got room 827, which was on the smoking floor. You couldn´t smell the smoke in the hall, but you could smell it in the room when entering.
If you are staying 100x in non smoking room, why do they give you on 101st time smoking one?
The room was quite nice, but it was definitelly not the kind of "wow" rooms. It was more like "ok, so the carpet matches with curtains" room. The window was dirty with hand prints, there were also stains on the mirror. But we came to Ljubljana to enjoy the city not to watch window, so I didn´t make a big deal from it and told at the reception only when checking-out.
Bathroom was very small, so you could sit on the toilet and brush your teeth in front of the mirror at the same time. The shower cable was leaking and on the bathroom door I also find some finger prints.
Fortunatelly, my husband has a small discount in this hotel, so we payd little less, but still. The standard doesn´t match the price at all. If I was guest paying the full price I would be mad with all those faults I found in the room.
There was also only one blanket on the bed, but the second one was brought to our room without problems.
Not to only criticize, I have to mention the breakfat which was superb, the coffee was delicious and the breakfast exeperience let me forget my dissappointing from the room.
Hotel is just at the centre of Ljubljana, so you have everything max. 10-15 minutes from the hotel. The parking is very expensive(cca 17 Euro/day), but we had a parking at friends, so this didn´t bother me.
I would probably go to tis hotel again (for the breakfast), but I would make sure to get better room, which they must have - at least according to the reviews here.
