Urban hotel is located in the city center of Ljubljana. It’s within walking distance of many of the top attractions of the city. Ljubljana is known for its green spaces and the hotel is located next to one of them. It’s located next to Argentinski park and very close to the famous Tivoli city park. You can easily walk to the castle, triple bridge, Ljubljanica river and Franciscan church.
You will receive a warm welcome at check in. The staff are very friendly as are the Slovenian people in general. English is spoken by staff and throughout Ljubljana. Whatever you are in Ljubljana for, it’s very likely you’ll be able to walk there from the hotel. The staff will be happy to provide you with a map. They’ll explain how to get to where you want to go and give recommendations on where to eat. You’ll also find lots of flyers from the tourism board showing things to do in Ljubljana. If you’re visiting Ljubljana in the winter like I did you’ll see a Christmas tree in reception. Ljubljana city has a Christmas market and lights this time of year too.
The guest rooms are spacious. Enjoy relaxing on the bed or sofa whilst watching the huge selection of cable channels. My favorites are the American movie channels and there were plenty to choose from. Something unique about this room are the luggage racks. In most hotels I feel guilty about scratching the surface. In the Urban hotel you’ll find a simple yet modern place to easily access your luggage from. To give you a little inspiration of what to do in the city, there is some art work of the cities attractions in the rooms and around the hotel.
If you’re traveling to Slovenia, roaming can be expensive. The hotel provides you with a cell phone to help you in the city. You can make free local calls and access the internet from anywhere in the country. I say country as Slovenia is a small country. Ljubljana and the Urban hotel could be your base as you make day trips and the phone would be your perfect companion.
The bathroom is sparkling clean. The best part is the walk in rainfall shower. Make note of the towel heaters. There’s no better way to end your shower experience than drying yourself with a warm towel. You’ll find all the amenities you require in the bathroom. Amenities such as soap, shampoo, vanity kit, hairdryer, magnifying mirror and bathrobes.
Complimentary breakfast buffet
For the breakfast buffet you may help yourself to freshly prepared food. There are bread rolls, sweet breads, cold meats, eggs, hot meats, fresh fruits, yogurts and cereals. As for your drinks you may help yourself to tea, coffee or a selection of juices. The breakfast staff will also offer you a coffee from the restaurant coffee machine. The coffee from the buffet is good but from the restaurant coffee machine you have more variety. How does a freshly prepared espresso or cappuccino sound to compliment your breakfast?
A unique part of the breakfast is the smoothie. This is a mixture of spinach, fruits and yogurt. When I was there they was really popular, everyone in the buffet was trying one (or two!). It’s good to start your day off with some vitamins. You can either drink it with a straw or pour it into a glass and drink it.
Conference room for business travelers
For those traveling to Ljubljana on business you have complimentary access to the conference room. It’s a small conference room which will fit a meeting of up to 25 people. The room comes with projector and super fast, reliable internet. To make sure your business meeting runs smoothly it’s advisable to organize your event with the hotel in advance. When the room is not being used as a conference hall it is a comfortable lounge for guests (above).
