Only stayed here for the one night, but we had a large, spacious room, of the highest quality......we hadn't booked 5 star quality in all of our accomodations but there must have been an upgrade.....or we got absolute top value for money here. Only a 10 minute walk from the railway station and right in the heart of the "old" town.

We stayed at the Grand Hotel Union Executive between 18 and 20 October 2013 having read many reviews on TA, and we were not disappointed!

The rack rate is pretty high but we were able to get a good online rate, and it was definitely worth it; the hotel is very well located, about a 5-10 minute walk from the train and bus stations and right in the centre of town. Taxi to the airport took less than half an hour as we were able to arrange this through the hotel at a discounted rate too.

Seconds after leaving the hotel you can reach the Triple Bridge and the city's many riverside bars and restaurants. Ljubljana is a small city to navigate anyway, but you really couldn't ask for a more central hotel.

In terms of the room, we stayed in a standard room and it was very comfortable and a reasonable size, very modern and clean and we had no issues with street noise etc. The only fault we could find was with the bed - the bed itself was comfortable, however the pillows were rather lumpy and flat, and the duvet was nowhere near big enough for the size of the bed. Extra blankets are provided, however, and this wasn't such an issue that we felt the need to raise it as an issue with the hotel.

Breakfast was very good - great selection of hot and cold items, continental and local.

Service at the hotel was great, staff very friendly and polite.

We will definitely stay here again next time we visit the city, and would probably not even consider any other hotels.

After two weeks of travelling by car and sleeping with a tent, and realising that there were little midrange options in Ljubljana, we decided to go all the way, and book a room at the Grand Hotel Executive. We didn't regret this one minute!

The hotel is located in the very centre of Ljubljana, couldn't be better. We had a large and clean room on the 7th floor, with a large balcony, and a view on the old city. Beautiful.

On the top floor you find a swimming pool, saunas and a beauty centre. I recommend the pedicure treatment!

Breakfast was so extensive that it was difficult to make a choice. Beetroot juice, all kinds of fresh eggs, pancakes, ... I don't have to explain to you that we really enjoyed it :)

I spent 2 nights at Grand Hotel Union.
I met serviceminded staff, a large and nice room and ate a good breakfast.
And when I had a couple of hours it was just 100 meter walk to the inner city center where you really want to be.

Loved the city! Friendly people, clean and beautiful buildings.

Located 100 metres or so from the famous three bridges in Ljubljana, we found this hotel to be very central to the old town. Our room was located on the 9th floor and we had views towards the castle. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Compared to some of the recent Italian hotel rooms we stayed in, we found these hotel rooms to have an up to date style. We were impressed with the buffet breakfast as there was a chef to cook your egg or omelette request. Highly recommended.

Well located hotel within an easy walk to the old town and a longer but walkable distance to the bus/rail station. The rooms are clean and tidy but dated. Breakfast was reasonable but not memorable. Pleasant views from the balcony. An average hotel in most regards.

as a flight attendant and having stayed in hotels around the world this hotel is expensive and does not offer good value for money like most hotels in Ljubljana all overpriced rooms outdated in need of refurbishment air conditioning is a joke and basically for the price you pay you might as well go to Slovakia or Tallinn where the hotels are much better luxury compared to most hotels in Ljubljana. very disappointing overpriced and breakfast area was like waiting for a bus in a small third world country

Room Tip: rooms all seem to be noisy in general
