Grand Hotel Union Executive
Housed in a stunning art nouveau building dating back to 1905, this is one of the most attractive hotels in Ljubljana and the choice of many visiting celebs. The building itself is a gem, but the quietly luxurious rooms boast views of other ornate art nouveau architecture and peek toward the castle. The hotel also offers an excellent restaurant, bar and café.Address: , Miklošičeva cesta 1, Ljubljana, 1000

Perhaps the sleekest hotel in Ljubljana, Hotel Cubo resides on one of the main thoroughfares leading to the city centre. The property claims to within walking distance of “the hub of the cultural, educational, political and business life” of Slovenia. While there’s a definite air of sophistication about the place, the staff are friendly and unpretentious. There are 26 spacious rooms, with furnishings and style boasting modernist touches.Address: , Slovenska cesta 15, Ljubljana, 1000

Antiq Palace Hotel & Spa
The place certainly lives up to its name. Glamorous rooms, chandelier lights and heavy drapes will take you back in time to a world of bygone luxury. If you’re tired after a long day of exploring Ljubljana, head down to the spa and enjoy one of the three types of sauna (Turkish, Finish and Infra-red) or relax with your loved one in the hot tub.

Fancy a night in a cell? This large property was once a military prison, but has been transformed into Ljubljana’s coolest lodging, located in the squatters’-paradise-turned-creative-hub that is the Metelkova district.

There’s also a museum in the basement detailing the youth hostel’s history.Address: , Metelkova ulica 8, Ljubljana, 1000

The location of this bed and breakfast could not be any better, as this budget hotel is tucked just off the lively Prešeren Square in the city centre.
