The hotel is located in a prestigious location, just a short walk from the old town and many important institutions, such as the Drama SNG Theatre and the Cankarjev dom Cultural and Congress Centre.
The history of the original building dates back to 1830, when it became a family residence of an influential local lawyer and was used for this purpose for more than one hundred years. After a complete reconstruction and investment worth 2.4 million Euros, from 2011 the Cubo Hotel has been representing a new chapter in the building’s history.
Hotel Cubo prides itself on a privileged location near the old town and many important institutions. Despite the central location, the hotel is easily accessible by car and Ljubljana is an ideal base for day trips to all of the popular tourist spots. The hub of cultural, educational, political and business life of the country is within walking distance from Hotel Cubo or by the Bicikelj public bicycle service. Hotel Cubo is also close to one of the largest Congress centres, Cankarjev dom. Two garages and public parking are nearby.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
The hotel is a solid blend of contemporary design and innovation in a traditional Ljubljana house. A minimalist design concept was used for the interiors employing top quality materials, subdued grey shades and pleasant room lighting. Each room is decorated slightly different but all prioritize their guests and their comfort. And despite being on a main town centre road you can hardly hear any noise from the main street.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
This ‘Boutique Hotel’ not only builds its profile and reputation among modern nomads through design trends and comfort, but it also focuses on an excellence of service and the attention given to each guest. In addition, it provides the free use of wireless in the hotel and the content of mini bar is already included in the room price. Due to all of this, Cubo has already been awarded many times. In Ljubljana the name Cubo is primarily recognised by gourmets, as it is originally the name of one of the most popular restaurants developed by Chef Boštjan Trstenjak. The concept has been successfully transferred under the roof of the Cubo Hotel, which in its restaurant offers seasonal menus inspired by modern Mediterranean cuisine and based on selected fresh local ingredients.
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
The Hotel has 26 rooms/suites, furnished in a modern, discreet style with a touch of sophistication, which is reflected in the choice of superior materials and in the room furnishings and fixtures. To name just a few – luxury Rivolta Carmihnani bedding, which can be found in luxury hotel chains such as the Hilton, Ritz, Four Seasons, and L’Occitane toiletries and accessories. The well-equipped conference room can accommodate up to 50 participants at business meetings and can also host private events.
DESSERT – The extras
Free and extremely fast Wi-Fi.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
There is nothing major; maybe, if we were being picky, the slightly small lobby immediately at the entrance to the road could be noted. However, in the summer the lobby is extended to the street by the garden.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
The personal approach of the incredibly friendly staff who are always smiling and helpful, including the director, who is always available to guests.
OVERALL IMPRESSION AND CREDIBILITY
It is no surprise that Ljubljana’s Cubo Hotel is among best-rated 4 star category hotels at Tripadvisor. The personal approach of the extremely friendly staff has been a major factor in this recognition. The Cubo restaurant is also a delight, with the breakfast selection of local products, jams and other surprises.
