Spent a long weekend in the beautiful Old Town district of Ljubljana at the end of October. A trip on the river was spectacular with the autumnal colours lining the river banks. The Old Town is full of character with plentiful restaurants and bars. Enough shops to keep my wife interested. The market area is vibrant and the produce on...

This is an old grand building with also a new section attached to it. Delicious teas and cakes in the lobby bar, nice rooms and beds. I'd come back here as it's walking distance from the pretty city centre.

Perfect location; very near main sites and attractions. Staff is friendly and helpful. Breakfast is excellent. Hotel has two buildings - one modern, one traditional. I think the traditional offers the better experience for vacationers.

The Union Hotel has an unbeatable location right at the boarder of Ljubljana's beautiful pedestrian area. The staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms are tidy and clean. However, the hotel is quite old as is its furniture, both of which would need an urgent refurbishment. Breakfast is very good and offers a large variety of food but there...

The Grand Hotel Union is a large hotel. It seems as if 2 hotels have merged in to one as there are 2 main entrances and 2 different areas for front desks. (One is able to exchange currency.) The rooms were of a nice size. I'm not sure if there was any temperature control in the room, but I didn't...

Stayed for 4 nights in August and had a wonderful stay. As a restricted mobility traveller, there was quite some distance to walk from reception to room - however once checked in - access to my room (right near the lift) was easy. The breakfasts were sensational - in fact in the 3 months of travelling, this was probably the...

It is in the downtown, near the town square, the river, and landmarks. Free wifi Busy business clientele and the restaurant was crowded at breakfast. No lobby, which made it hard to collect as a group. The rooms are large but mediocre mattresses, pillows, duvet.

This beautiful art-deco building was obviously conceived as a five star hotel when built.
