Access to the hotel

The Best Western Premier Hotel Slon is situated at an elite location right in the heart of the city. It is an excellent starting point for exploring the enchanting streets of the old city core or simply enjoying Ljubljana’s pulse, which you feel as soon as you step through the door onto the street.

IMPORTANT: Do not enter the hotel address into your navigation device. Instead, enter one of the following starting points at the border of the pedestrian zone. There is a sign in Slovenian at the border of the pedestrian area stating that hotel guests are allowed to drive up to the hotel.


Starting point A (if arriving from the direction of Graz (AUT) or Maribor): enter Slovenska cesta 44 [GPS coordinates 46°03'15.6"N 14°30'15.9"E or 46.054366N, 14.504551E, link:]. Our hotel is situated 200 metres from the starting point on the left side of the street.

Starting point B (if arriving from the direction of Klagenfurt (AUT), Jože Pučnik Airport, Zagreb (HR), Trieste (ITA), Gorizia (ITA), Postojna): enter Šubičeva ulica 1 [GPS coordinates 46°03'02.8"N 14°30'09.9"E or 46.050780 N 14.502749 E, link:]. Our hotel is situated 200 metres from the starting point on the right side of the street.

The Best Western Premier Hotel Slon is the only prestigious hotel in Ljubljana that is located in the pedestrian zone in the very centre of the city, but guests who have booked a room at the hotel can drive right to the hotel door. After giving our guests a warm welcome, our staff take their car to a safe parking garage nearby. The parking garage on Trdinova ulica is only a safe and pleasant 500-metre walk away through the city centre.

Driving to the front of the hotel and stopping there for up to 15 minutes is allowed for:

  • Hotel guests with a confirmed room reservation arriving with their own car
  • Other drivers dropping off or picking up hotel guests (business partners etc.)
  • Buses carrying guests who are staying at the hotel (we recommend that buses use starting point B, since the hotel’s location makes access more convenient for guests).

Important notice

If you have a confirmed room reservation, you can use your confirmation email as an access pass, allowing you to drive up to the hotel through the pedestrian zone. Keep it with you in printed or electronic form (tablet, smartphone) whenever you drive through the pedestrian zone.
