Stay in a stunning Art Nouveau hotel in the Slovenian capital with breakfast and private airport transfers - Christmas dates available
Slovenia's historic capital is a hub for regal architecture, leafy outdoor spaces and important national landmarks. Bounded by the beautiful Slovenian Alps, Ljubljana is separated by the idyllic Ljubljanica River and boasts a medieval hilltop castle and an iconic Art Nouveau bridge. In summer the city is enhanced by greenery before becoming bordered by snow-capped mountains during the colder months. Over the Christmas period, Ljubljana lightens up with its annual Festive Fair, offering decorations, traditional craft markets and ice skating rinks.
Located in the very centre of the city, just minutes from the train station, Grand Hotel Union is a striking Art Nouveau property with views over some of the city’s most important landmarks. The hotel’s majestic façade unveils its important history as the earliest contemporary hotel in Ljubljana, once accommodating the likes of Orson Welles and Her Majesty the Queen. Inside, high ceilings and period features are complemented by modern design and stylish furnishings.
Each guest room in this 4-star hotel is spacious and elegantly presented, with chic furnishings and modern amenities. Spend time in the on-site spa, take a dip in the indoor pool or head to the gym for a workout. Hire bicycles from reception to explore the city with ease, visit the Grand Union Café for High Tea or enjoy relaxed meals in the courtyard garden. The hotel’s dedicated Les Clefs d`Or concierge team excel in first-class service, there to aid you with every aspect of your holiday.
Good to know
The Ljubljana Festive Fair runs from 30th November until 2nd January. Peruse the numerous green stalls for unique Christmas gifts before sipping on a mulled wine or enjoying a traditional Slovenian snack. Cosy accessories are also on sale, such as scarves, hats and gloves, and locally produced delicacies, like honey and confectionery.
