English version

Grand Hotel Union, Ljubljana:


Located in a wonderful old Art Nouveau building just off Prešeren square, the Grand Hotel Union couldn't be more centrally positioned for exploring Ljubljana and is justifiably one of Slovenia's most famous hotels offering top quality accommodation, service and facilities. A 100 year tradition and a Ljubljana landmark.



Located on Miklošičeva street 50m from Prešeren Square, the Grand Union Hotel Ljubljana is about as central as you can get and in easy walking distance to all the major sights and attractions of the city. Many of the surrounding buildings (not to forget the hotel building itself) are historic Art Nouveau style buildings creating a wonderful atmosphere. Some of the streets surrounding the hotel are pedestrianised so it remains a relatively quiet location for its central position.
