Again, I woke up prior to my wake-up call at 6:15 and decided to take advantage of the early start to packing up my suitcases, something I had not done the night before. After completing my task, I headed downstairs to eat another fine breakfast.

On returning to the hotel I discovered that the tour group which leaves the day before us was having their pre ride briefing. They are on the "Alps Adventure". Once their briefing was finished they were taken by taxis to pick up their bikes and have a short familiarisation ride. No sooner had the ...

Correction, the credit card snapped at the Zagreb train station so it had been on it's last legs for about a week, and finally got stuck in the bank machine when trying to withdraw cash.

Historical Traveler Reviews Austria Trend Hotel Ljubljana
We spent three days at the Domina Grand Media in July, and cannot recommend it highly enough. It is everything that the previous reviewers said, and more. Beautiful, clean, welcoming, friendly and helpful. It is situated just off the motorway, and we found it very easily. Hotel staff parked our car for us at the underground carpark next door (you could park it yourself if you wanted to) and parking was free - all you had to do was get the hotel reception to stamp you parking ticket, which you gave to the man on the gate when exiting. There was no problem getting into town - the hotel runs a courtesy mini-bus, which goes into town every half hour in the mornings, and returns every half hour in the afternoons until about 9pm. Even if you miss that, local busses run from just outside the hotel every 10-15 mins at the cost of 300 SIT (less than a pound) per person, each way.
I am going through my head trying to estimate how many hoitels I have stayed at.....i think around 100 in 15 different countries.
Was referred to the hotel by the local tourist office (which was extremely helpful) and was not disappointed. While I'm sure there are cheaper options, this was a very new and attractive hotel with good service. Parking was a bit confusing, but I would recommend it for picky tourists. Slovenia is a really neat country to visit and I'd definitely go back.
This is clearly the best hotel in Ljubljana - a good, solid 4/5 star. Big (and free) breakfast buffets, very smart bar and restaurant, friendly staff, smart bathrooms and modern bedrooms.
We stayed at the Domina Grand Media the first week they were open. This hotel is a short cab ride (about one mile) from the train station. It is not well located for sightseeing, but the price, size of the room, internet, free phone calls to over 130 countries, and the beautiful breakfast make up for the location. We had one of the "comfort" rooms and it was huge. I would say it was large even by US standards. The bathroom was very nice and large. The flat panel TV operated as a computer for web surfing. Very modern decorating worked well throughout the hotel. The spa and gym were not completed yet when we stayed, so no info on those in this review. The best part of the stay was the breakfast. It was a huge buffet with the standard hotel fare plus hot items (eggs, sausage, bacon) and some nice cheeses and salads. Wonderful hotel in a town with less than ideal choices.
