Top Luxurty hotels in Ljubljana

#1 Luxury hotel in Ljubljana is Grand Hotel Union

Grand Hotel Union Ljubljana


Believe it or not, the decision was easy. It’s the Grand Hotel Union’s location that is the top location in Ljubljana. Why?

Because the Grand hotel union ljubljana lays directly on the “border” between pedestrian zone (strict center of Ljubljana) and the road network. That means you can park your car in the garage of the Union Hotel, check in, take a shower and then take a walk for as little as 100 meters to reach attractions like “Tromostovje”, top restaurants, Ljubljana Castle, … and vice versa. Wake up eat your breakfast and drive 1 hour to the beautiful nature of Bohinj or Bled.

… park your car in the garage of the Union Hotel, check in, take a shower and then take a walk for as little as 100 meters to reach attractions …

As we already mentioned Grand Hotel Union offers garage for its guests. Altough it seems reasonable, we like this very much.

Beyond location the Grand Hotel Union is at least comparable with other luxury hotels in Ljubljana. Offers pretty much everything that Hotel Intercontinental or Antiq Palace does.
