Hotel Review: InterContinental in Ljubljana, Slovenia


Book A Stay

Ljubljana is Slovenia’s capital and the largest city and the InterContinental is housed in the tallest building in the city. Ljubljana is known for its university population and green spaces, including expansive Tivoli Park.

The curving and picturesque Ljubljanica River is lined with outdoor cafes where you can while the day away sipping a coffee or a beer and watch the boats chug by and people wander past, making this city a brilliant destination for the summer.

Ljubljana also has many museums, including the National Museum of Slovenia, displaying historic exhibitions, and the Museum of Modern Art, home to 20th-century Slovene paintings and sculptures.

You can fly on Easyjet direct into Ljubljana, Slovenia (LJU) from London Stanstead or London Gatwick.


The InterContinental is located near Ljubljana Old Town so is ideally placed for exploring the city’s top sights. Start your day with a stroll to historic Prešeren Square. Stop to admire the sculpture of 19th-century poet France Prešeren, take in the baroque architecture or listen to talented local buskers. The city’s medieval heart lies across the iconic Triple Bridge. Immerse yourself in 900 years of history with a visit to the fortified castle before shopping for artisan breads and cheeses at the Central Market.

Park Tivoli is the city’s favorite green space where you can discover statues, fountains and avenues lined with trees before enjoying a picnic in the rose garden. If you have time, the nearby Museum of Contemporary History offers a fascinating insight into the nation’s recent past. For a more active approach to local culture, ask the concierge to book a cycling tour of Ljubljana landmarks, many designed by famed architect Jože Plečnik.

In the evening, enjoy a stunning sunset cruise on the glittering Ljubljanica River, before returning to the hotel for an apéritif at Bloom lounge bar. If you decide to go out, the concierge can book tickets to the Slovenian National Opera and Ballet Theatre, only a few minutes’ walk from our Ljubljana luxury hotel. If you’d rather stay in, head upstairs to B restaurant, where you can savor mouthwatering international cuisine and fine wine as you admire the twinkling lights of the city skyline.

In the lobby, you will find the Bloom Lounge which is your third dining option. The fourth is the exclusive Club InterContinental lounge mentioned below.
