Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)

There are three Grand Union Hotels in Ljubljana; Executive, Business and Garni (although the receptionist told me they are thinking of changing the name). I chose the 4-star Garni because it offered a good deal at the time (via Expedia) and it was perfectly acceptable, if typically business-hotel-characterless. There seems to be a lack of mid-range hotels in Ljubljana (at least, those accessible online and not miles outside the city centre).

There are lifts, a restaurant, a coffee-bar, a sauna. Rooms are modern, with desk/TV(several channels, including some in English)/minibar/good double-glazing/good shower/hairdryer etc (and robes/slippers too, though we didn't use ours).

Although my booking was for bed & breakfast the confirmation quoted room only. On querying it, I was told breakfast was 'complimentary'. I don't know why.....but it didn't matter. The breakfast room is pleasant, with the usual cold and hot European items available (bacon/yoghurt/rolls/pastries etc) on a serve-yourself buffet.

The hotel is extremely convenient for railway and airport bus ( 3 minutes walk) and for the city centre (5 minutes) and is opposite the police station. Ljubljana must be a very safe city; we only heard sirens once during our 3-night stay!

I'd choose the Garni again, because it offered good accommodation with minimal hassle. Not particularly cheap by Slovenian standards, but about half the price it would have been in the UK for a similar hotel and a good base for exploration.

Directions: From the railway station cross the road towards the city centre and walk down Miklosiceva Cesta. Hotel is on the right, on the corner of Trdinova Ulica.
