Superior group tour accommodation

  • Best Western Premier Hotel Slon
    Best Western Premier Hotel Slon

    The Best Western Premier Hotel Slon is located close to the centre of the city, a few minutes' walk from the iconic three bridges. The name Slon, meaning 'elephant' in Slovene, dates back to 1552 when Maximillian II Archduke of Austria passed through Ljubljana on his way back from Spain. Accompanying him was an elephant, which impressed the local population so much that they named the hotel after the animal. The property offers 168 bright and colourful rooms featuring modern decor and equipped with modern amenities. The hotel's award-winning restaurant serves modern Slovene and Mediterranean cuisine accompanied by a selection of fine wines. There is also a coffee shop serving a variety of pastries and sweets throughout the day. Other facilities include a fully equipped fitness centre and spa offering a range of treatments.
