Weather in Ljubljana

Ljubljana has a temperate climate with cold winters and relatively hot summers.

Spring (March to May) sees the temperature creep up from 6°C (43°F) to 15°C (59°F), offering pleasant weather forecasts.

Summer (June to August) is the busiest tourist season, with pavement café tables buzzing and a string of open-air cultural events. Because of its urban location, Ljubljana may feel hotter than breezy coastal Slovenia. The average daytime temperature sits around 25°C (77°F), but can reach 30°C (86°F) or higher.

Autumn (September to November) is short-lived, but the perfect season to visit because the weather is not too hot and the tourist crowds in Old Town dissolve. September sees an average temperature of 15.5°C (60°F).

Winter (December to March) can be chilly, but cosy visits to Ljubljana’s inns will warm up tourists even in the coldest months. Average temperatures range from 0.7°C (33ºF) to 1.8°C (35°F), with February seeing the highest snowfall. Don’t underestimate the city’s charming Christmas market and New Year celebration, which warrants a stroll along the riverbank to peer at glittering holiday lights.

Hotel Cubo

Perhaps the sleekest hotel in Ljubljana, Hotel Cubo resides on one of the main thoroughfares leading to the city centre. The property claims to be “in the heart of the cultural, scientific and political Slovenia”. While there’s a definite air of sophistication about the place, the staff are friendly and unpretentious. There are 26 spacious rooms, with the furnishings and style boasting modernist touches.

Hotel Park

Offering affordable accommodation just on the edge of the city centre, this refurbished hotel might not win any awards for its tower block design, but it has clean, functional rooms with a touch of style. Free Wi-Fi in the 200 bedrooms and lobby comes in handy. Rooms are not large, but there are family rooms and junior suites for those seeking more space.

Hotel Emonec

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. The rooms are basic, but perfectly clean and comfortable. Little extras include bike hire, notebook hire, free Wi-Fi access and the slightly surreal massage chair, the latter available for 15-minute intervals.

Slamič

Much more than the ‘bed and breakfast’ it markets itself as, this cosy abode is housed above one of the city’s most famous cafés. Guests can enjoy excellent breakfasts there, as it’s part of the same business. Rooms are calm and comfortable, sporting creams and browns for a tasteful ambience. This is a good option for those looking for a conveniently located, cheap hotel in Ljubljana.

Grand Hotel Union Executive

Housed in a stunning art nouveau building dating back to 1905, this is the most attractive hotel in Ljubljana and the choice of movers and shakers, as well as 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 and café.

City Hotel

This three-star property is centrally located with views of the capital’s castle. Transformed by a massive renovation programme a few years ago, City Hotel has extra rooms, restaurants and conference facilities. Neat features include free bikes and free internet access, while the staff are also happy to book local tours. The on-site restaurant offers good-value lunches and dinners, as well as tasty breakfast spreads.
