On the outskirts of the city, next to the Ljubljana ring road, the hotel is placed in the most green hotel environment in Ljubljana. It is surrounded by woods and meadows, yet it is in close proximity to the urban centre of Ljubljana. For years it has been thrilling with its surprisingly neat and sophisticated surroundings, which is spick and span. With a sprucing up and the entry of a new hotel chain, it seems that the location and appearance of the hotel are again its main advantages, as they were for the former Mons Hotel. Experienced eyes only notice the new inscriptions; everything else on the outside is almost as it was at the opening in 2004.
The biggest advantage of the hotel is its giant parking lot and easy access by car, which has been for a decade among the major added values of the hotel. The city centre is just a stone’s throw away and the junction of main routes next to the bypass is a great added value, with the airport just 20 minutes away. With its location, the hotel is perfect for automotive events and promotions.
COLD APPETIZER – Architecture and Aesthetics
Clothes make a man, good architecture makes a hotel. The signature of legendary architect Boris Podrecca provides architectural visibility and elegance. We have to admit that after ten years the solution remains fresh. The ground plan in the form of fingers extending into the forest wonderfully connects nature with the functional parts of the hotel. The renovation of the rooms, reception and hotel bar has highlighted the basic idea of the architect, which is nicely summarized in the positioning slogan of genuine and simple comfort. With the renovation it was managed to maintain the basic form also in the interior and convention guests have especially taken such exterior and interior simplicity as their own.
WARM APPETIZER – Staff and Food
In the renovated hotel and under new management everything is now subordinated to business guests. This means that breakfast is a very important part of the culinary story and judging by what was seen they are doing it very well. The hotel’s lobby with its bar has become a nice meeting point, where business guests can have something to drink, wait more relaxedly and generally feel good. Today, this is the hotel’s main ‘candy’ that was somehow missing in its previous version. The staff is professional and in line with the expectations of such a chain.
MAIN COURSE – Congress hotel offer
In Mons they have been for many years one of the leading events organisers in Ljubljana, as they organise over 1,000 events per year and according to the management they produce as much as 45% of the revenue through congress events. The flexible conference centre has six conference halls and three smaller meeting rooms. Soon these will be joined by a multifunctional hall in the former Polna skleda restaurant. The maximum plenary capacity is 600 seats.
Following the extensive renovation the 114 rooms are modern and comfortably furnished.
DESSERT – additional offer
Probably the best hotel in Slovenia for the implementation of car launches and generally for automotive events with a huge parking lot and spacious service areas.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Isolation – the hotel is not in the city centre, which can also be an advantage.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
Excellent hotel for all lovers of recreation and active businessmen. In the middle of the city’s recreation epicentre, Mostec, and green nature.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
A hotel that promises its guests the same quality of accommodation they get in similar hotels of the brand worldwide. The renovated hotel is more different than one would sense at first glance, and perhaps now it is even more suited to business guests. With the Four Points by Sheraton chain one also gets the expected quality, the result being a kind of hotel golf, for which it is difficult to criticise anything.
