      Historical Traveler Reviews City Hotel Ljubljana

      Beware builders!


      Just a quickie to warn travellers to Ljubljana that the City Hotel is undergoing MAJOR renovations for the next 12 months. They don't tell you this when you book - it's not until you arrive to find a total building site (with associated noise) that you find out. When it's complete it will be fantastic but until then I suggest you either stay somewhere else or ask for a room far away from the current building area.

      Pretty good


      Few problems with the shower which weren't sorted out despite us moaning about it!

      ...Maybe slightly overpriced, but the location is excellent and it's very clean. Polite staff.

      I'd probably stay here again - it's pretty good overall.

      Not perfect but perfectly adequate


      Despite being less than 5 minutes from Presernov Trg (where you'll find the 3 bridges) and the train/bus station, this hotel is quietly located in a side street. Quiet that is until 7.15am when the building works start up. Rarely has there been a better excuse for an early start to the day. The works seemed to be at quite an early stage to me so it is likely to be several months before they are finished. The building works end at a reasonable hour so there is no noise in the evening/night. The room was small (I was on my own so it was perfectly adequate for one person but probably a bit of a squeeze for 2) but it had all the usual facilities - TV, radio alarm clock, adjustable radiators, bath/shower - and gave away a free bottle of water and a chocolate on the pillow every day too which was a nice touch. However, I found that I had no hot water in the morning. As I was there for 5 nights this caused me a problem (plenty of hot water in the evening though). I did not report this to the reception staff (as I should) and I am sure they would have sorted this out if I did as they were quite helpful. Breakfast wasn't bad with a wide selection of cereals, cold meats, cheeses, yoghurts etc as well as a few hot items such as scrambled eggs, bacon, toast etc.

      The lifts worked but are tiny so could be a problem if you've got a huge amount of luggage. The hotel has 2 bicycles for hire too which is a very practical option in this small city as much of it is pedestrianised.

      This is not the greatest hotel in the world but its location is excellent, it's comfortable and very clean and you could do a lot worse.

      Compact Rooms But Good Location


      The rooms at the City Hotel were compact but they were clean and comfortable.

      The hotel is less than five minutes walk from the railway/bus station and a similar distance to the city centre so the location is good.

      They are currently adding a conference facility to the hotel so there are building works/renovations ongoing. This is expected to be complete during this year.

      The breakfast room/bar/reception have not seen much investment in the past few years - but is maybe part of the ongoing work. The bar was particularly uninviting - however, as you are within a few minutes of many cafes and bars within the city its not like you really need to use it. Breakfast itself was OK with the normal buffet selection of meats/breads/pastries and eggs available.

      For a reasonable value hotel for a couple of nights in a good location the City Hotel will fit the bill.



      We stayed here one night in December and had a fantastic visit. The hotel's location is ideal, in a very central part of town. Parking was not great, but cheap. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and the breakfast was great. It had hot and cold items and was very tasty. The small bar was very nice and had a good selection. We really enjoyed our time in this beautiful city, especially around Christmas. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again.

      Great location


      The City hotel is in a great spot, close to shops, cafes, great restaurants etc. Breakfast was really nice, lots of variety. Our room was very clean, beds and pillows very comfortable but for the life of us we couldn't find the airconditioner that we were promised so it was a little hot. Would recommend.

      Value for money


      Reasonably priced no frills city hotel. Rooms are clean and bathrooms recently renovated. Nice breakfast and very helpful staff.

      The hotel is close to the pedestrain area and the city centre attractions.

      Great for a city break


      Have just returned from a fantastic four night stay in Ljubljana and would recommend the City Hotel as providing everything you would expect/need from a 3* city centre hotel. Best of all is the location, which is down a quiet street but literally a few minutes walk from all the bars, restaurants and sights of this lovely city. We booked via email and the hotel was prompt and courteous in replying to any request for information. Check-in and check-out were conducted smoothly. Our room was small and reasonably basic but was spotless and had everything you would expect. Importantly, the king size bed was very comfortable. Breakfast consisted of an excellent buffet choice of cereal, fruit, bread, rolls, eggs, cheese, cold meat, pastries, etc.

      Ljubljana itself is a fabulous city with lots to do, beautiful architecture and some great bars and restaurants. It's a great destination for a city break and the City Hotel an ideal place to stay.

      Great for weekend getaway


      Recently had a 2 night city break to this very scenic (though quite expensive) city. Stayed in the City Hotel and agree with previous reviewer. Location is good. Rooms are good, although my double bed was not particularly comfortable. Service was pleasant and the breakfast was more than adequate. Would stay here again. Recommend tripping up to Lake Bled for fantastic scenery. Hope tripadvisor post my review this time.

      An excellant location


      the City Hotel is well located and is within walking distance of everywhere you are likely to to want to go in the City. We walked from the airport bus in a few minutes and the old town is very close.

      It has been recently refurbished and the rooms are clean, comfortable and warm. The breakfast is especially good - loads of choice eg fruit, cheese, meat, scrambled eggs, cereals etc etc.

      Very good value hotel

      Greenest city in Europe

      Ljubljana is considered to be one of the undiscovered gems of Europe and it is easy to see why! It is well known as one of the greenest city in Europe and it has amazing building and structures. The triple bridge is in the heart of the city and sitting in the square people watching as we love to do is fascinating.

      On the night of the 15 June Gus and I decided to wander around Central Ljubljana and sample some of the local brews. The first pub was called the Cutty Sark and you wouldn't believe it but as we walked in they played "I come from a land down under" by Men at work. Classic! stuff. The sound of that tune obviously made both Gus and I quite thirsty. …

I had a slight concern; the Bus Croatia site gives all the Times of buses to Ljubljana, which was our destination today, but I couldn't find any information on where passengers are supposed to buy tickets - on the bus, from a ticket office, or otherwise. I wanted to catch the 11.30am bus as the next wasn't until ...

It certainly rivalled Füssen in regards to incredible views. The evening was spent drinking wine, playing cards and preparing for the next day. At 9am we were on our way to the mountains just outside of Bled where we had ...
