Next to the hustle and bustle of a city intersection and urban part of Ljubljana, a hi-rise building was built in 1938. It offered shelter to many distinguished persons. A prestigious design with peripheral construction attracted the eye of tourists, especially those connoisseurs who noticed the work of architect Jože Šivec. With its tempting constructed ground floor and staircase, it ranks among the most beautiful examples of hi-rise buildings in the capital. The building has preserved its original charm and today hosts the Urban hotel Ljubljana. Just like our doors, our minds are also open. Ever since we thought of opening the hotel, it’s never just been about offering a bed for the night but more than that: providing a place where guests can have an enjoyable stay and feel the pulse of the city for a reasonable price. We try to offer prominent warmth and efficient service. Next to our guests, our team is the most important value of our hotel. The group of individuals who work at the Urban hotel provide exceptional welcoming and warmhearted service to you. We try to create a collaborative work place, where we treat each other with respect. So our whole team is a part of one big "family" and we would like you to feel as if you're part of our "family". We will try to make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. Situated only a few hundred meters away from the city center, the Urban hotel Ljubljana offers 36 thoughtfully appointed guest rooms that combine popular bourgeois style with modern facilities, reflecting global trends – a comfortable and relaxing stay for a memorable experience. Hotel Urban is located in the city center, from where you can access the most popular points that represents the essence of Ljubljana. Only 100 meters sets you apart from the world-famous Three Bridges, the old town with Plecnik marketplace, within reach are a number of luxurious galleries, vibrant bars, about which a lot of blogs are written, boutiques, vibrant bars and many hidden points that invite you to explore.

I hate leaving negative reviews for any business, especially in the middle of the pandemic, but our experience with the Urban hotel was so terrible that I feel I have to share this information with others. We had booked a room for one night at the Urban hotel for the 17/18th of January (Sunday to Monday night). We had to travel to Ljubljana from Austria for an urgent family issue, and, being aware that Slovenia is under strict quarantine rules, and many hotels may be closed, we made sure to search for hotels that actually showed availability for our specific dates. The Urban hotel clearly appeared as open across many platforms, and most importantly, on their own website, showing room availability for our specific dates. We booked the room 4 days prior to our trip, and received a standard confirmation email within minutes of our booking. We didn’t receive any additional follow up from the hotel after that, so we obviously assumed everything was fine and proceeded to take the 5-hour drive from Vienna to Ljubljana on Sunday. We arrived to the hotel around 7pm on Sunday, January 17th. When I rang the hotel buzzer, a woman answered, and when I told her we were there to check in, she simply said ‘Oh, we are closed madam’. I proceeded to explain to her that we had made the reservation directly through their website, we had a confirmation email, and we hadn’t heard a single word from them for the previous 4 days about them being closed. Without a single word of apology, she simply repeated that they were closed because the government had been forcing hotels to close due to the lockdown. I then became completely panicked and asked her what we were supposed to do, in nearly -11 Celsius cold on a Sunday night, and she simply told me she didn’t know, and perhaps we could call the Slon hotel nearby and inquire with them. And then, while I was still talking and pleading with her for at least some information or help, she simply hung up on me. Yes, in hindsight I of course wish we had called the hotel and triple-checked with them in advance that they were in fact open, but I simply assumed that they wouldn’t show themselves as open and available across multiple platforms (including booking.com, expedia.com, and their own website), for those specific dates, and wouldn’t accept our reservation and send us a confirmation email with all the details, if they were in fact closed. Btw, as of the time of writing this review their website still provides zero information about them being closed, and they still appear available for booking, for today’s date for example, across all of these platforms. In the end, we had to call many hotels, and only one appeared open in Ljubljana that evening – the Radisson Plaza. I am so grateful to that hotel and their caring and friendly staff for helping us out at a moment’s notice. I’m not sure what we would’ve done otherwise, but I strongly suspect we would’ve had to drive the 5 hours back to Vienna, as we didn’t particularly feel like sleeping in our car at -11 Celsius. It has now been 4 days since, and we still haven’t heard a single word from the Urban hotel. I of course get it if hotels have to close due to the pandemic. And I also get it that the pandemic has made it very challenging for businesses. What I absolutely cannot understand is why a hotel would still advertise themselves as open, confirm a reservation, and not make a single effort to inform their future guests that they’re closed before the guests make a long and difficult trip to stay at the hotel. And I ESPECIALLY cannot understand how someone can be so incredibly rude, callous and cold as to simply say ‘we’re closed’, without a word of apology, and then simply hang up on people from whom they accepted a reservation, without spending even a minute to try to help them figure out the situation or offer any advice whatsoever. So, my advice to everyone interested in staying at this hotel – please be prepared that, if you find yourself in a dangerous situation because of their own incompetence, they will make absolutely zero effort to help you.

Response from Urban Hotel, General Manager at Urban Boutique Hotel
Responded 22 Jan 2021
Dear Ms. Lemondzhava, thank you for your detailed review. As you have already mentioned, we are in the middle of a pandemic, for which the rules and instructions given by the Government of the Republic of Slovenia are changing day by day. As I apologized to you on the intercom and mentioned that we did not receive your reservation, accordingly we did not have your contact to inform you about the mentioned situation. Therefore, as you mentioned yourself, you did not receive a welcome message with details from the Urban Hotel. The Government of the Republic of Slovenia unfortunately does not allow us to accommodate guests, the exceptions are guests on business trips, athletes and delegates. Of course, I apologized for the situation. Since I wanted to help you, I referred you to the nearest Hotel Slon. Unfortunately, we also do not know which hotels are open and which not. We try to help our best way. As for the intercom, I apologise but I did not interrupt the conversation during the intercom call, but the intercom is set to turn off automatically after one minute. Since we didn't have your contact, unfortunately I couldn't call you back. The call back possibility doesn't work through the intercom. Since I wanted to help you, I was by no means rude, but knowing that the intercom would turn off after one minute, I wanted to give as much information as possible to help you. So, the conversation lasted more than a minute and, in that minute, I wanted to help as much as I could. I wanted to let you know we´ve taken the bad elements you´ve mentioned in your review to heart. Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. Please accept my apologies for any inconvenience you experienced. Sincerely, Urban Hotel

The room was nice, quiet and clean. The staff was friendly, the hotel is located very central in the beautiful city of Ljubljana. Therefore, you can reach the entire city by walking. The only negative point was the parking space, but I think such a disadvantage is quite natural when you are central in a large city. To summarize: Book this hotel!

The rooms were large and clean. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We were leaving very early to catch our train on the last day and when I mentioned this, the gentleman on reception offered to make us a little packed lunch which was very generous and much appreciated. Would definitely stay here again. Great location too
