Hotel's Favourite
My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights. The hotel staff were very friendly and efficient. The hotel is in the centre and only a 2 minute walk from some wonderful restaurants and attractions. The buffet breakfast was very good with an excellent choice of hot and cold food. The bus station is only a 10 minute walk away where you can catch buses to Lake Bled which is highly recommended. You can also buy the tickets for the attractions from the bus station. Our room was spacious and clean.

Stayed here regularly lately and will come back. The front desk, Ksenija and the team, are doing a great job to make you feel comfortable. This hotel is slightly cheaper in general to comparable hotels in Ljubljana and so a good value for money. Equipment is a bit outdated, but the rooms are cosy and clean. Clean and well-maintained Sauna and the gym is great added value. If you want to stay in the city centre you can't beat this location.

Very nice hotel in the heart of Ljubljana, with products of l'Occitane in bathrooms. Nice sheets and pillows. Clean. But... In the time of the second corona wave breakfast has been served very optimistic. With masks on faces and gloves on hands the food has been served without protectiv shields. Corona is gone in Slovenia!

Hotel Slon was a pleasant surprise, being better than other “Best Westerns” I have experienced. It is located within Ljubljana’s pedestrianised zone and a 5 minute walk from the Triple Bridge. The room was spacious, clean an comfortable. The buffet breakfast caters for most tastes from fresh fruit to cooked breakfasts. I would stay here again. P.S. Ljubljana is a gem and day trips to Piran and Lake Bled by bus are possible too.

After non visible damaging of an operation system of mycar, which was out of my control in hands of the hotel staff. I discovered the problem on the highway and informed the hotel immediately. Regretfully the hotel does not listen customer's complaints and does not seek a solution maintaining hotel reputation and satisfying both sides. They refused to discuss any responsibility for such event. It really unbelievable for such worldwide hotel network especially during corona crisis when the hotels fight for every guest. They completely destroyed any other good service. I am travelling all over the world but such a bad policy I met for the first time /especially in such a hotel Brand By the way I got the room into the main street (although the hotel was not full) so that we slept very bad because of a demonstration in streets. I would expect soundproof windows on such place and in such hotel. Maybe I would not mention this (the demonstration is not the problem of the hotel, the windows are) in case I would not be forced to mention a problem with my car.

Responded 12 Aug 2020
Dear Sir, We are very sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with our Valet service as well as with our lower management. As mentioned in our correspondence we have to let you know we do not step off from our original statement on that case. The porters do not move manually our guests car mirrors at all as there is no need for we have plenty of space in our parking garage. All our porters are professionals and report any marks, damages on the cars etc. to their supervisor. Regarding your vehicle there were no reports or remarks on any of mirrors. In addition, after the departure from our hotel premises we are not responsible for your vehicle any more. In conclusion, in that case we were unfortunately not able to act differently. Therefore, we kindly ask you for your understanding. Once again, we are sorry you did not enjoy your Hotel Slon experience to the fullest. Thank you once again for your understanding. Kind regards, Tomislav Mileta Assistant Front Office Manager and Concierge
