4-Star changes

Journey to becoming a 4* property
As part of our continuous effort to provide our guests with a superior experience of stay, City Hotel Ljubljana is proudly introducing the following improvements, which enabled us to move from the 3* Superior category to a 4* Hotel category. Every innovation has been thoughtfully designed and selected to further improve comfort and the guest's overall well-being with us.

 

Room renovations

City Hotel Ljubljana boasts 207 rooms for couples, businessmen, families and friends, which have gone through several phases of renovation in recent years:

 

  • Deluxe Terrace Rooms and Suite Above the City

The latest addition to our offer is the construction of 9 new Deluxe rooms with a terrace and a corner Suite Above the City on the highest 7th floor. In addition to the dramatic views, they provide uncompromising indulgence and comfort at an exceptional level.

 

The 30 m2 Deluxe terrace rooms, featuring panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows, parquet flooring, and designer solutions, represent an excellent blend of comfort and elegance. Each room offers a private rooftop terrace with breathtaking views of old Ljubljana and Ljubljana Castle. Carefully selected amenities include an Illy Espresso coffee machine and L’Occitane bathroom cosmetics.

 

The newly built Suite Above the City spans 66 m2 on the highest 7th floor and boasts a luxuriously furnished living room and bedroom, along with a lavish bathroom featuring two sinks, a separate freestanding bathtub, and a walk-in shower. The private corner terrace offers stunning views of Ljubljana Castle and the panorama of Ljubljana.

 

 

  • Comfort Rooms

Comfort rooms are an excellent choice if you're seeking a bit more comfort or accommodation for an extended stay. The rooms are spacious and feature large windows, making them particularly bright and inviting. All double bed Comfort rooms feature a comfortable sofa which can be turned into a 160x200 cm sofa bed for 3rd person.

 

We have introduced a comfortable bedding concept in all rooms with new high-quality mattresses, a diverse selection of pillows, and premium bed linen.

 

The walls are adorned with black-and-white wall murals of Ljubljana by the renowned local photographer Žiga Koritnik, representing the story of both City hotel and the city of Ljubljana in the concept “City within the City," a narrative that began in the Standard room category.

 

In our commitment to providing maximum comfort for guests with allergies and other health needs, we also offer Comfort rooms with wooden flooring and hypoallergenic bedding. As an accessible hotel for individuals with disabilities, we provide rooms tailored for those with mobility challenges.

 

  • Standard Rooms and Family Rooms

We have enveloped our Standard rooms and various Multi-bed rooms (Triple rooms, Quadruple rooms, Family rooms and adjoining rooms), highly popular among families and groups of friends, in the narrative of the "City Within The City." They boast an artistically visual design with black-and-white wall glimpses of Ljubljana, the work of the renowned local photographer Žiga Koritnik, bringing a unique sense of urban vitality to the guest's experience.

 

In addition to ensuring a comfortable sleep with entirely new mattresses and soft Egyptian cotton bedding, all rooms also feature an environmentally friendly air conditioning and heating system, sound and fire insulation and LED lighting for a modern touch.

 

 

 

Additional Comfort in Rooms

In all 207 hotel rooms, we have introduced numerous new additions to further enhance your comfort:

 

  • Luxurious Sleep Concept, including:

 

- New High-Quality Beds: Every room in the hotel now features an upgraded bedding concept with new Luxury Plus mattresses, measuring 32 cm in height. The premium mattress, with a high-quality reinforced pocket core and HR foam padding, efficiently retains heat, absorbs moisture, and, with the help of intense carbon fibers, neutralizes the body's natural electric charge, reducing tension and stress.

 

  • Pillow Selection: A variety of pillows is at your disposal 24/7, delivered to your room for your best sleep experience. The selection includes anatomically ergonomic and hypoallergenic pillows with different types of fillings, firmness levels, and heights.

 

  • Premium Bed Linens: Finely woven and brushed luxurious 400 thread-count Egyptian soft cotton linens, providing the perfect sleeping experience.

 

  • Mini Fridge: Keep your drinks or snacks pleasantly cool.

 

  • Umbrella: No need to worry about unexpected weather surprises. An umbrella is available to keep you dry and comfortable when exploring Ljubljana.

 

  • Kettle with Tea and Coffee: For those moments when you crave a relaxing cup of tea or a refreshing coffee in the comfort of your room.

 

 

Renovation of the Conference Center, Terrace and Fitness

 

  • Hotel Conference Center

The completely renovated conference center, spanning 166 m2 and accommodating up to 180 people, is equipped with state-of-the-art event technology tailored to the client's needs.

 

It offers four different halls and the option of flexible space combinations with partitionable walls for live and hybrid events. Supported by the latest technology added in 2024:

 

  • High-Performance Sound System
  • Interactive LCD Screen with Built-in Camera
  • Laser Projector and Wide Screen
  • Intelligent 360° Video Conference Camera actively tracking the speaker
  • Diverse selection of handheld, tabletop, and headset microphones

 

The event offerings are complemented by the exceptional culinary skills of our hotel culinary and pastry team, creating delicious coffee breaks, exquisite catering, business lunches, glamorous banquets, and elegant standing receptions.

 

 

  • Hotel summer terrace

Our newly renovated terrace on the 1st floor overlooking the city has become a green oasis, providing a private and relaxed setting for business meetings, social gatherings, and evening entertainment, all while enjoying a breathtaking view of Ljubljana Castle. It is also very suitable as a venue for tailor-made events for 50-70 people.

 

During the warm months, weather permitting, we also serve hotel breakfast on the terrace, providing significant added value for our guests right in the heart of the city. Diners can enhance their dishes with herbs growing around their tables.

 

In 2022, we gave the terrace a complete refresh, adorning it with a wooden floor and furnishing it with comfortable and dynamic seating sets from the Slovenian line, Drugačno Pohištvo. While preserving its distinctive retro vibe, we added some special touches – the white rose of Ljubljana, an authentic Ljubljana bench, and a "selfie spot" with a Rog bicycle, further connecting the hotel's identity with our green capital.

 

 

 

  • Hotel fitness

Experience our completely renovated fitness center located on the first floor, proudly opened in 2023 with your comfort and a seamless workout experience in mind, featuring equipment from the Slovenian brand Kingsbox.

 

The highlight of City Fitness is the functional cage Mighty CX-35 CPS in City’s Gold color, paired with overhead lifting bars, enabling various weightlifting exercises with Kingsbox weights and your body weight, such as squats, leg lifts with weights, bench press, deadlifts, pull-ups, chin-ups, and exercises for biceps and triceps.

 

The fitness center also includes a cardio corner with machines suitable for all fitness levels:

 

  • KingsBox Royal Soft-run Athletic Club Treadmill
  • KingsBox Rowerg Concept 2 Rowing Machine
  • KingsBox Assault Bike

 

High-quality mats are available for yoga, pilates, and floor exercises.

 

The space is characterized by anti-vibration flooring and large windows providing ample natural light and views of the City Summer Terrace.

 

 

Upgrading our Services

 


  • Expanded Hotel Breakfast Offer

At City Hotel Ljubljana, we take pride in offering a rich buffet breakfast meticulously prepared every morning for both our hotel guests and visitors. We provide a full English breakfast, egg and vegetable dishes, along with a delightful selection of cold cuts, spreads, cereals, granola, yogurt, seasonal fruits, various types of bread, pastries, and fresh rolls.

 

To ensure a diverse and healthy experience for all our guests, our menu always includes superfoods such as nuts, dried fruits, fresh cereals, vegetable juices, and vegan dishes. Upon request, we also offer gluten-free and lactose-free products.

 

We are particularly proud of the daily fresh pastries and other desserts, handcrafted by our pastry master, Simona.

 

We prioritize local and Slovenian suppliers, supporting the green supply chains of the city of Ljubljana. Additionally, we have enriched our offerings with a special "Slovenian Corner," featuring carefully selected traditional dishes from nearby farms.

 

  • City Bar

We have enriched the offerings of our lobby bar with a delightful selection of cold and hot snacks, including daily soup and warm dishes. The diverse culinary menu of the bar is also available for guests who wish to enjoy their meals privately in their rooms through room service.

 

  • Hotel Lobby Pantry

At the hotel reception, we've curated a cozy corner offering guests a 24/7 thoughtfully selected array of beverages, a variety of snacks, handy travel essentials, and a souvenir program featuring creations from renowned local artists.

 

  • Our commitment to sustainability 

Our commitment to sustainable development includes efforts to reduce waste, water consumption, energy conservation, and support for local suppliers and green practices.

 

In 2023, we introduced the initiative "YOUR GREEN CHOICE" which was excellently received among our guests. For longer stays, guests are invited to opt out of daily cleaning services, making a significant contribution to our sustainability efforts. In appreciation of their choice, we thank them with vouchers for a complimentary drink at the City Bar.

 

  • Golden Certificate for Accessibility

We take immense pride in being the first in Ljubljana to be honored with the Golden certificate for being “Disability friendly”. This recognition from the Premiki Institute serves as an inspiration for us to continue our efforts in ensuring unrestricted access and the most comfortable stay for all guests in our hotel.

 

Our goal is to provide unimpeded access and accommodation for all our guests. Therefore, the exterior, public areas of the hotel, and certain specifically adapted rooms are designed to best meet the needs of guests with mobility impairments, hearing impairments, or visual impairments. The entrance and hotel lobby on the ground floor are easily accessible and spacious, without stairs or carpets.

 

The reception is equipped with a hearing loop and magnifying glasses, and our staff is empowered with knowledge on how to offer entirely individualized solutions for each guest's well-being.

 

The elevators are sufficiently large with wider doors, suitable for wheelchair users. Where possible, ramps replace stairs in hallways. The restaurant and conference center are located on the ground floor, very open and entirely accessible, including adapted restrooms. The underground garage also has parking spaces for those using assistive technology.

 

We offer 6 spacious Comfort rooms (35 m2) adapted for wheelchair users. The bathrooms are equipped with adapted sanitary facilities.
