Lovely hotel in a lovely location. Staff were really friendly, spa was beautiful, ,just off the main square. Ideal base for sightseeing I would definitely recommend ,there is a lovely castle there to visit,and you will be very near the river that runs through the city.

The staff were very kind and helpful. Our room was spacious and had everything you could think of - I loved the curved window in our room. The staircase is gorgeous too. Breakfast has a huge choice and even prosecco. No one could leave hungry. A really wonderful hotel!

We arrived to find a platter of fresh fruit awaiting us. The room was spacious and comfortable, with a touch of art deco...

First time I visited Ljubljana and had room in this hotel 10 years ago, in 2005. I remember that I was positively surprised: very stylish old building, nice rooms, good breakfast and swimming pool with sauna on the top floor. This time the feeling was worst. Maybe the reason was, that everything was the same like last time: no changes...
