Best Western Premier Hotel Slon

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Was charged 70 EUR for a ride to the airport. Taxi taken from the front of hotel.

My wife and I stayed here one night on our way back to Italy. We arrived fairly late and were nicely upgraded to a wonderful corner suite --- in a US city like SF or NYC this would have been a 400$/might or greater room. We picked this otel due to central location -- in particular we wanted to take advantage of the Saturday marketplace -- a 5 or 10 minute walk away although the weather was quite rainy. Breakfast was plentiful --- always a nice feature of central European hotels. Staff was nice and helped us get a cab the next day. As, as this was my 3rd time in Ljubljana, this is really a pleasant city and quite convenient to NE Italy (e.g., Trieste and Venezia). It has an Austrian feeling but the people are far more friendly (and the prices generally good).

I was surprised at how nice this hotel is. The taxi took me from the bus / train station to 200m from the hotel. The reason is that is located in a pedestrian only zone, which is quite nice. It is very near the old city center. It is about a 7 minute walk to the bus / train station. The hotel staff are very friendly, the decor is very beautiful, the wifi is very fast, though the room and bathroom are very tiny - the bed was comfortable. Tip: Walk to bus station for tickets to Postojna Caves. It was very easy and cheaper than a tourist company. When you get off in Postojna go uphill, turn left, and left again at the dead end to reach the caves. It is a 15-20 min walk from the bus station.

Hotel located in city center. Opera, classical and jazz concerts in walking distance . On the pricey side, but worth it. Good breakfast, friendly staff.

Nica and Clean room around thr corner from the old town. The staff is friendly and they have a nice resturant in the hotel.

The air in the room was very bad. Had to open balcondoor and Windows, this was in winter! Balcondoor was Brolenius. Ot it allmosor Fell off.

Front desk staff couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Room service staff was amazing and so sweet to me. Had dinner twice there and was very satisfied. I stayed for seven nights and this is definitely the hotel I were return to if visiting Ljubljana once again. Joanne

The hotel is located walking distance from almost all of Ljubljana's sights. The breakfast buffet was always fresh & well-stocked, offering lots of food choices. The rooms were quite large by European standards. The staff spoke enough English to be helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is located just in the heart of the city, everything you can get by walking distance, good food, good environment, castle in the back of your hotel, when you arrive, drop your car to hotel staff, they will take care everything, good coffee shop and restaurant inside of the hotel. But room is little small.

Very central to everything. Just what we needed when travelling to neighbouring places. will definately stay there again.

This hotel is situated at the virtual town center, convenient to many down-town located businesses and the city's main attractions and entertainment. Can be a bit noisy if your room is facing the street. My room was looking into a courtyard (not much of a site) but was very quiet. My colleague had a room overlooking a street - great view but comes with a bit of street noise. Hotel does provide ear plugs in their vanity kit (which I thought was brilliant). Breakfast is amazing. Great variety and quality of food. Check out the pastry shop Zvezda (amazing pastries) and Cafe Bar Slon (great food but takes time as it's one of those European places where you come to sit and people watch not because you want your food quickly). The room decor is a bit of a downer and could be much improved. Both bed and pillows were very comfortable and there were variety of pillows provided (pillow menu available). The entrance to the hotel is very cool and hip. The rooms just need a bit more stylish elements (better furniture, artwork, etc.) to make it a first class place. It looked to me that upgrades done to the hotel lobby and reception desk were not done to the rooms. I was very-very impressed with the staff at all levels (from the housekeeper, restaurant, front desk, bell service). They were fast, efficient, friendly, spoke excellent English, and tried hard to help and please.

Staff are helpful. English language is no problem. Possible to arrange shuttle transit to/from airport and have this appear on hotel bill, rather than paying shuttle separately. (Shuttle is very reasonably priced, as compared to taxi.) Very near to old city center, university, cultural event, and railway/bus station locations. Although location can be a bit noisy, the windows are good quality and shut this out quite well. Extensive breakfast buffet included.

We loved our one night stay at the Slon in Ljubljana. The staff treated us and took care of us very well. They even allowed us to keep our car parked in the temporary zone so that we would not have to pay for over night parking. As a family with a baby it was a great experience for us. Plus... Mac Donald's is just around the corner if you need a quick meal before hitting the road again.
