The former Yugoslav republic of Slovenia, which gained its independence in 1991, is slightly smaller than New Jersey. With one toe dipped in the Adriatic and several major rivers and lakes, water sports are popular. To the east, the Alps provide excellent hiking and skiing. Nestled below its castle, the capital of Llubjana is a vibrant, youthful city with a thrilling arts scene, a flotilla of festivals and impressive architecture that runs the stylistic gamut from Renaissance to Art Nouveau.

The location of this property could not be better. Step out of the front entrance and you find yourself in a street of art nouveau buildings, and no traffic! The street is reserved for a steady stream of pedestrians only - plus the ubiquitous Ljubljana cycle and scooter riders - and within a few moments walking you are in the lively, bustling heart of the city. Asked for a room overlooking this street, and it was spacious and bright, with a complimentary mini-bar. The nearby Franciscan church was briefly and occasionally noisy with it's bell-ringing, and the sounds from tourists in the square drifted through the window, but neither was a problem. Soundproofing with the windows closed was excellent, as was the air-conditioning. The hotel did not have a restaurant for an evening meal, but had a cafe dining area which was open for much of the day. It was of a good standard with a perfectly adequate and reasonably priced menu. Breakfast was included and the choice was excellent. The variety of breads, cakes, and fruit available was very impressive. But if you also wanted the eggs, bacon and sausage start to the day, that option also came with chips. A first, for me, at breakfast. Overall, I was very impressed. The staff in particular were a credit to their profession. I feel as though some of the reviews below are misleading, and that they may even be reviewing a different hotel, bearing in mind that The Grand Hotel Union is linked by an internal corridor to a place called U Hotel, which caters mainly for business travellers, I think, and which did not appear to be so...grand.

Stayed here for a couple of nights and found the location to be excellent within a short walk of the river. The staff were very helpful and had (at our request) booked our transfer into the city from the airport. They were also quick to offer water when I came in feeling rather hot. Room was comfortable though the bath very slippery for showering. The hotel does not do food in the evening and breakfast whilst good was a little eclectic by UK standards.

The Rikli Balance Hotel has an elevated position in the centre of Bled overlooking the Bled lake and castle. The four-star superior hotel has 150 rooms, including 10 suites. All the rooms were completely renovated in 2017 which was followed by the restaurant, lobby and conference center in 2018. The hotel hosts the Živa Wellness centre and the Živa pool complex and world of saunas. The cuisine at the hotel is international with some local Slovenian touches and can be experianced in at the Rikli buffet and live cooking restaurant or the Veranda a-la carte restaurant.
Rikli Balance Hotel is everything one could ask for. It's modern and clean, but in a warm and inviting way. The rooms have generous use of wood. The lobby has some beautiful "living walls" of plants. The restaurant – which offers an excellent breakfast – has a great view of the lake and Bled Castle. Somewhat incongruously, there are several robots roaming around offering sweets or perhaps other goodies – I never did figure them out. There's an enormous heath center with pools, a water slide, and jacuzzi spas. The lake shore is a very short walk away. Our room (310) was large and comfortable. It did not have a lake view, which would have been a bonus. The bed was great, with a softer mattress than in most of the hotels where we stayed while touring the region.

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.
We were in Room 628, which was very nice, the only thing which let it down in my view, was that there was only one chair, and the pillows were poor. I would have rated this more, as the staff were very friendly and accommodating, what let the place down was the breakfast, now although the selection of cold food was very good and plentiful, the big let down for me was the cooked side of the breakfast, over the 4 days we sat for breakfast, (we even tried different times), the food was always cold. The toaster was broken, and even after feeding it through 5 times it still remained white, even after adjusting the speed and heat. But if you only want continental type breakfast this is the place for you.

Lovely hotel and smart rooms. Staff very helpful , professional and friendly. Bus trip to town is very easy (bus stop is by the hotel) and cheap! Takes approximately 15-20mins. If you eat locally, I can recommend the Italian restaurant Kaval which the hotel recommended to us . It's only a 10 min walk away..a very lively restaurant outside on the terrace when the sun is out , but equally as nice inside during cooler evenings.

Ahotel is an independent hotel for leisure visitor seeking to enjoy the delights of Ljubljana as it is for business executives. Ahotel offers an excellent standard of a 4 star accommodation at value for money rates, as well as balance of contemporary yet comfortable style. Ahotel is modern, inviting, spacious and cozy at one.
The hotel itself is worthy the money paid. Rooms are comfortable, clean and peaceful. Breakfast is decent. BE CAUTIOS: few hours after we have checked out we were extra charged for the mini bar items we definitely didn't take and without prevoiusly beeing contacted. Huge disappointment at the end not because of the money charged (13 €) but because of the treatment of the guests after they left the hotel.
