After extensive renovation, one of Ljubljana’s finest hotels now impresses guests with its timeless retro-chic elegance, increased guest room capacity and a new conference centre, TehnoLev.
Hotel Lev, which is part of the Union Hotels group and has been welcoming guests for 55 years, has been extensively renovated and now boast a retro-chic interior, five completely refurbished floors, including the so-called “Pavarotti Floor”, new Premier Suites on the “Top Floor” and increased guest room capacity. Ljubljana’s conference facilities have been supplemented with a new conference centre, TehnoLev, which features an innovative function room design, and the culinary options now include the chic and aesthetically pleasing L Bistro & Bar, where guests can enjoy light lunches.
The former 13th floor now features 14 Premier Suites, which boast exceptionally spacious interior (approx. 33 m2) and timeless elegance with a touch or retro chic, as well as stunning views of the Ljubljana Castle or the Tivoli Park. The design concept for the renovation of Hotel Lev, whose guest room capacity was increased by 36 rooms, was devised by Vienna-based company BWM Architekten, and the project design and engineering was entrusted to the Genius Loci institute. A young team of architects and designers led by Tina B. Prekovič has followed the vision of the Union Hotels management and made an excellent job in transformation of hotel Lev public space to a trendy place, where guests can relax and enjoy.
Just a few steps from Hotel Lev, at the former Tehnounion, is Ljubljana’s latest innovative conference centre – TehnoLev, which boasts three modularly-designed conference halls that can be fully customised to the needs of small- and large-scale events of various kinds. TehnoLev’s design and renovation were entrusted to the architectural firm Kosi in partnerji, d.o.o. Partition walls that feature motifs crafted by the Slovenian artist Jure Markota allow for various room dimensions and add to a one-of-a-kind ambience.
