The Slovenia Times

110 years of Grand Hotel Union


The know-how acquired over the decades provides a good basis for growing business excellence and the tradition is a guarantee of trust and quality for Grand Hotel Union's guests. But the hotel's tradition is also a source of amazing stories associated with the hotel - Grand Union Café and the Union Hall, for instance, are the former meeting place of the greatest Slovenian artists and intellectuals (the painters Rihard Jakopič, Hinko Smrekar, Ivan Čargo, the writers Ivan Tavčar, Ivan Cankar, Oton Župančič and many others) and new stories are still written here every day. That is why Grand Hotel Union is much more than merely a hotel. It is a venue providing guests with a meaningful experience on many levels.

Grand Hotel Union is best known for its stunning Art Nouveau architecture, but it is also the largest conference hotel in Ljubljana. It offers an exclusive location in the heart of teh city centre with 327 rooms and 21 conference halls

Tomislav Čeh, General Manager said:

"Grand Hotel Union is a jewel of authentic heritage and I am really honoured to be a part of its remarkable 110-year-old story. Every day we write a new chapter where tradition is combined with trends and personalization in a way that really appeals to our guests' experience in every respect. Last year, we carried out a number of renovations and added new state-of-the-art technical equipment.

The meals we serve are made of locally grown, seasonal produce, we host numerous cultural events throughout the year and have more than 170 wines to choose from on the hotel's wine list. In November, we are introducing the concierge service and adding a new business lounge at Grand Hotel Union Business. As hospitality and openness are characteristic of Slovenian people, our interactions are genuinely kind. And because Grand Hotel Union, opened way back in 1905, constitutes a prominent part of Ljubljana's and Slovenia's past and present, our guests actually become part of the local scene and tradition."
