The first design hotel in Slovenia, the four-star Mons is not your average Ljubljana hotel. It's not in the city centre but on its outskirts so if you're not bothered by this the Mons is a unique place to stay with bright and comfortable accommodation. Even though its congress centre is popular with local and visiting business guests, it's not a bad choice for leisure guests either thanks to its quiet location.

    Location

    Mons Hotel is located on a hilltop off the western Ljubljana bypass, 2.5 miles from the city centre. It is in the heart of a small forest on the edge of the city and is also the closest hotel to the airport (a 15 minute drive away).

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    There hotel consists of 114 rooms spread across 3 floors of accommodation, each floor colour coded yellow, blue or red. The categories range from standard and standard superior rooms through to junior and executive suites. All rooms are immaculate, bright and uncluttered with tasteful, modern furnishings. Each room features framed works from art students at the local university. Admittedly a handful of rooms overlook the car park which is why it won't hurt to request a room with woodland views. Although the hotel is not far from the highway the rooms are very quiet due to the design and layout of the hotel.

    The standard rooms feature large double beds draped in crisp white linen, wooden floors and sparkling bathrooms (some with shower, some with bathtub). A pop of colour is provided by some of the furnishings (e.g.: a cherry red armchair against pale yellow walls). The deco is minimalist but the rooms are very comfortable. Meanwhile the suites follow the same style but are much more spacious due to a separate bedroom and living room with LCD flat screen television and DVD player.

    Overview 8.20 /10

    The Mons boasts modern architecture (built in 2004) from celebrated architect Boris Podrecca, designed to exist in harmony with the natural world. Large glass surfaces ensure natural light filters into all corners of the hotel. The hotel structure is designed in the shape of a hand with the hotel wings or 'fingers' spread out from the 'palm.' (At the time of our visit, the hand was missing a finger - work planned for the future). There's also a story behind the curious green hotel façade - representing the spread of chlorophyll from the surrounding woodland.

    Meanwhile the spacious reception area is manned by smartly dressed staff and access from here to the upper floors and accommodation is quick and easy. At the heart of the lobby is a hanging pendulum by German sculptor Karl Schlamminger; suspended from the top floor (and therefore visible from all floors in this particular wing) it never stops moving. The artist is known to ponder time, creative movement and energy in the work he creates.

    Unfortunately the hotel does not boast a huge range of leisure facilities but there are plans for a swimming pool in the future. For the moment, guests have at their disposal on the ground floor a pool table, small sauna, and modest gym with big windows that overlook the neighbouring forest. Bonus points for the Technogym equipment and personal trainer. In spring and summer the hotel offers organised morning jogs through the forest (there are various marked paths). Bike hire is also available. There are nine meeting rooms provided for business guests which overlook the highway and act as a noise buffer to the hotel rooms.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    Breakfast is served in the Atrium Restaurant, found just off the lobby. A good variety of hot and cold items are available at the buffet. Lunch and dinner are served here à la carte; we appreciated the forest views (thanks to the large windows) and the grand piano nestled in the corner. The Polna Skleda self-service restaurant was designed with French 'marchés' in mind and is meant to resemble a marketplace with various stalls. It is open to the public as well as those staying in the hotel and is popular with passers-by. Polna Skleda was awarded the title of 2nd best self service restaurant in Ljubljana. Try the in-house specialty the homemade macaroons; especially the white chocolate/Cointreau/rhubarb jelly recipe! The hotel boasts all day dining and there is also a limited room service menu available after-hours (24 hour room service).

    To know

    Internet connection is free of charge throughout the entire hotel. WIFI is available in the public areas, whereas cable internet connection is available in the rooms.
    The hotel offers a free shuttle service to the city centre (2.5 miles away) 6 times a day.

    • Best Western Premier Slon Best Western Premier Slon Best Western Premier Slon

      • Value for money 7.16
      • Location 8.81

      With an excellent city centre location, the Slon is a very comfortable four-star hotel ideal for a city break. Boasting "450 years of tradition," the site of the Slon has hosted inns and hotels since the 17th century when a visiting newly-wed Austrian-Hungarian prince paraded his wedding present - an elephant. And so this is how the name "slon" came about as it is the Slovenian word for elephant. The hotel in its current state was built in 1937 at the height of the Art Deco era.

      Hailed by many locals as the top hotel in Ljubljana, the Grand Union Executive is a beautiful hotel built in 1905 and a lovely example of Art Nouveau architecture. Renovated in 2009, the grande dame appears relatively fresh faced given her age. However, there is a big difference between the older and newer parts of the hotel - our advice is to request a room on the 'old side.' Over the years, everyone from Queen Elizabeth II, to Bill Clinton, Roger Moore and the Dalai Lama have bedded down here. If you're after a central location, you can't do much better than this place.

      The only five-star property in Ljubljana, the Lev is a large hotel located, surprisingly, on the outskirts of the city centre. Popular with business travellers (for its excellent conference and meeting facilities), the Lev is also a good choice for city-breakers thanks to comfortable accommodation and attentive service. Its name means 'lion' in Slovenian and comes from the name of the restaurant that used to be where the hotel is today.

      This three-star hotel on the outskirts of Ljubljana is a popular place with travelling cyclists. Even if you've not got your eye on the next Tour de France prize, M Hotel is a good budget option for those who aren't bothered about not being in the heart of all the action. The rooms and facilities are simple though so perhaps not suited to honeymooners!

The highlight is no doubt the multi-tiered garden terrace, perfect on sunny days.

This is a small hotel however, with only stairs to access the rooms on the upper floors; those with mobility difficulties should request a room on the ground floor.
