City hotel is located in the heart of Ljubljana, one of the most relaxed capitals in the world, where castles and dragons rub shoulders with trendy coffee shops and a lively night life. This pleasant 3-star superior hotel offers 197 comfortable rooms where you can rest after a busy day of exploring the capital. But your exploration of Ljubljana doesn't end when you enter your hotel room, because we brought a bit of the city inside each room with a photo wallpaper showing the magic of the city through the lens of the renowned photographer Žiga Koritnik. This way, you can dream under the Dragon Bridge, the Cathedral or another surprising, yet undiscovered corner of the city. We offer more than just comfortable rooms and a friendly staff. The hotel has a fully equipped conference centre with four conference halls, a sunny terrace with lush greenery and a gorgeous view of Ljubljana Castle, a fitness centre, a restaurant and bar. In addition, we offer an internet corner and free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. For rainy days, we recommend you browse through our book case, next to which you will find a comfy reading area. Here, you can spend many pleasant hours curled up with a good book and some hot cocoa to keep you company. If you are visiting in your own car, you can use our underground garage. We also provide free bicycle rental for carefree exploration of Ljubljana, as the city centre is closed to traffic. We have a variety of guests staying with us, from business people to young couples and families who wish to stay as close as possible to the romantic old town. The hotel is easily accessible from all main roads entering the city. It is located right where the traffic-free area begins and is easily accessible by a car. The main bus and rail station is only 400 meters away and the Jože Pučnik airport is located 25 kilometres from the hotel. City Hotel is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to explore other parts of Slovenia as well. It takes just a little over an hour to reach the magical Slovenian coast and take a walk down the cobblestoned alleys of medieval Piran, enjoy a delicious sea-food meal or party in Portorož. You can just as easily drive to Lake Bled that looks like it came out of a fairy tale or explore the breath-taking underground world of the Postojna Cave.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at the 'City Hotel' for 3 nights with my sister. When we arrived we were able to check in at 11.30am which was great as we expected to have to return later in the afternoon.
The location is perfect! It is a 5 minute walk to the main bus station, a 5 minute walk into the centre and around 15 minutes to Ljubljana castle and park Tivoli.
Our room was very clean and we had comfortable beds, a powerful shower, kettle, safe, TV and hairdryer. The breakfast buffet was excellent and we were spoilt for choice with a variety of hot and cold food.
The only disadvantage was that our room was too hot and we couldn't adjust the temperature. We had to open the window but this meant that we heard all the noises from outside.
There were also renovations going on and we heard a lot of drilling during the day.
Overall really impressed with the hotel and would definitely recommend to anyone and hopefully return myself!

City Hotel Ljubljana is located in a very convenient location where you can reach the City Center by walk in a few munites. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The bathroom is very spacious too. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is very good. We were there for the End of the Year Celebrations and to Welcome 2020 and the City of Ljubljana was very beautifully decorated with Christmas lights it was an amazing experience.

We stayed here for two nights in January 2023 in a room for four people (two adults + two adult children).

The hotel is extremely well located about two blocks from the main centre of activity, and a five-minute walk to the funicular up to the castle. To walk from the bus/train station it's about three blocks (five minutes). The bus station is essentially a small building by the train station and that's where long-distance buses come and go and from there you can also take the bus to Lake Bled.

When we left we took a taxi to the airport (about 25-30 minutes away) organised by the hotel for 33 Euro.

Our room was one of the best rooms for families that we have come across with two large beds facing each other, although each of the two beds is essentially two individual beds pushed together. There was plenty of space for the four of us. The bathroom was large enough. There was a small safe (not large enough for laptops) and a jug for boiling water with tea and coffee supplies. The room was quiet. There was good storage space for our suitcases and to hang our coats, and shelves for our clothes and other items.

The breakfast buffet was ok, although the hotel has to do something about the coffee situation as on both days there were queues to use the two coffee machines. One of the machines was extremely slow. Get it fixed!

If we return to Ljubljana we will certainly stay here again.

Spent 2 nights here exploring beautiful Ljubljana. Convenient location with a 5 minute walk to the square, comfortable room with a lovely bed. Was surprised how many english channels the tv had. Room a bit too warm but could leave the door open which was good if you don't mind a bit of street noise. Staff were very friendly with great english, organized a shuttle to the airport for 9€ pp. Breakfast was delicious the most extensive we have had yet in our european trip. Unfortunately the restaurant wasn't open this time of year but would of been nice as there seemed to be quite a few people staying. Would definitely stay again if we are in Ljubljana again.

We stayed here for 3 nights in a room with balcony overlooking the castle. This is on the corner of a road junction and with an English pub/hostel across the road we feared it might be too noisy but we had no problem. It gets the sun all day but by evening it was a lovely spot to sit outside and relax with a drink (the room has a fridge so we got some cans from the Spar 5 mins walk away and stored them in here.
Our room was a great size and carpeted, which we liked. the bathroom was also a good size and with a bathtub as well as a shower (which was great and powerful). This review would have been a 5 star except the minimum on the air conditioning was 21 and we would have liked it cooler than that overnight. The public areas are cooler than this and you can sit in the bar or a seated area behind the lifts with some books.
The breakfast was absolutely brilliant - so much choice of cooked stuff, cheeses, fruits and breads/pastries. The actual buffet area is quite small so I imagine it can get a bit chaotic in peak times, however it suited us to be down before 7 each day when there weren’t too many people there. We only used the bar once for a capuchinno but that too was delicious.
Having arrived with luggage after a long and hot journey we opted for a taxi from the station. The driver quoted us €10 which we accepted without hesitation as we were so exhausted, but we realised later you can walk it in 5 mins so he did very well out of us! There is also a McDonalds at the station and on one evening we simply got a takeaway and enjoyed it with a cold beer on our lovely balcony.
Finally, a thank you to the lovely reception staff who were warm and friendly throughout.

I thought this was such a great location for walking around Ljubljana. My room was small but very cute, with a nice big comfortable bed. The buffet breakfast each morning was huge. The main hotel itself is large and basic. A business hotel. But it is so easy to walk everywhere. Also the staff was super helpful and their transfer service to the airport cost me much less than a taxi.

We cam to Ljubljana primarily for their Christmas Market. We took a Flixbus from Zagreb to Ljubljana whihc I recooment becasue you can get their faster than the train and it is cheaper. The hotel is about a 10 minute walk from the bus station. The hotel itself is downtown and only a few minute walk from the Christmas Market and River where all the happening places are. The hotel haas a very frendly staff - i forget the name of the gentleman that helped us but he was fantastic! The rooms were bigger than the typical european Hotel. Noce bathroom with a roomy shower whihc is a big plus in Europe. We had a nice comfortable King Bed and the wall painting was a pic of the city - very beautiful. We overlooked a courtyard and other buildingd adjoining the courtyard. Breakfast was included and ot was excellent! On another note we went back the next day to the Bus Station and went to Lake Bled. I would highly recommend you staying at this hotel if youare ever in Ljubljana!

We had a great time there in November. It was far exceeded our expectations. The room was clean and spacious, the bed was also comfortable and we got free water, tea and coffee. The breakfast was also great, wide variety of food (even soy based stuff). The hotel was close to the city center with a parking garage (which should be reserved in advance), it cost 18€ per night. The staff spoke English very well and were very helpful.

Enjoyed this hotel overall and much better than expected. Travel agent sold this as a 3 star hotel, however its possibly the best 3 star I have stayed in and exceeded expectations. Room was well appointed with good facilities such as tea and coffee, in room safe, hairdryer and toiletries. Main issue we had was that the room was very hot as heating was fully on and no air con due to time of year, otherwise almost a faultless stay. This did make it hard to sleep at night and keeping window open meant it was noisy due to traffic outside etc.

Breakfast was good, lots of options so great great to fill up before a day sightseeing, hotel bar also good with light snacks such as toasted sandwiches and cream cakes which were great value for money and a nice space to chill after a long day. Location was very central, no more than 10 to 15 minutes walk from many attractions/ points of interest. Hotel also helped to book airport transfers and gave us details of a company for tours to Lake Bled which were very good and picked up outside hotel (Slovenia explorer tours). A little tip is if you don't want your room cleaned there is a thing you can hang on your door and get free drinks in exchange for no room cleaning (not available for day you check out).

Only downsides apart from as mentioned above was food seemed to stop early in restaurants and adult TV channels very easy to access with no lock.

Hi - Is parking free at this hotel?
Ljubljana, Slovenia
Dear Rachael, We offer our guests the possibility to park in our underground garage for additional 18€ for a car or 9€ for a motorbike per 24h. The number of parking places is limited that is why we recommend reserving it together with the room. However, there are some other possibilities. There is public parking available near the main entrance. It costs 1,20 EUR per hour from 07:00 to 19:00 and 1,80 EUR for the whole night. Another possibility is an underground garage a few minutes on foot from us, on Komenskega street No.30 for 15€ for 24h. Feel free to stop by our main entrance to unload your baggage and ask for advice at the reception. We are looking forward to your visit! Best regards, Jurij - Head of Reception
