Opened in 1905, Grand Hotel Union was the first modern hotel in Slovenia’s capital. In supporting Ljubljana’s political and social ties with the the world, the hotel has hosted many important figures over the last century including Dalai Lama, Bill Clinton, and Queen Elizabeth. After an expansion and renovations, the Grand Hotel Union Business was born. Its amenities, culinary offerings, and central location are why we think it’s the best place to stay in Ljubljana.
Best place to stay in Ljubljana – Location and Space
Located only 5 minutes on foot from Plečnik’s picturesque Triple Bridge, guests have front-of-the-line access to the old city. Ljubljana’s major attractions, restaurants, shops, and nightlife are all at your fingertips once you walk over this architectural gem from Prešeren Square.
As a modern business hotel, the space is clean, large, and inviting. The hotel can also host up to 800 guests in its 20 halls and rooms intended for cultural and social events, weddings, and business meetings.
Best place to stay in Ljubljana – Guestrooms
Each of the 127 rooms and 6 suites are equipped with complimentary Wi-Fi, large working spaces, coffee makers, and LED satellite TVs. Housekeeping takes cleanliness to the next level with disinfected remote controls.
Our Studio Double Plus had a large balcony with a view of the Ljubljana Castle. The best part? The Keyton massage chair right next to our bed- perfect after a long day of exploring.
Dining at Grand Hotel Union Business
We can’t do without yummy breakfast spreads while on the road, and Grand Hotel Union Business didn’t disappoint with its luxury self-service breakfast! With what seemed like an endless choice of both hot and cold foods to choose from, we wish we had bigger stomachs!
Treat yourself to meals prepared by an award-winning team of chefs at three fine dining restaurants: Restaurant Union, Restaurant and Bar Atelje, and the Union Cellar. Guests can also indulge in fine coffees, aperitifs, and snacks at the Union Cafe or Aperitif Bar.
Best place to stay in Ljubljana – Wellness and Fitness
Guests can enjoy a little R&R from Sense Wellness. The 8th floor swimming pool offers an amazing view of the Ljubljana Castle. Sun tan on the open terrace, revitalize in the Finnish sauna, or unwind with a massage ritual.
