Plaza Hotel Ljubljana: Big in Size and in Standards
Plaza hotel is set to become Ljubljana’s congress hotspot in a matter of months owing to perfection in every aspect - from visual aesthetics to culinary experiences. Furthermore, Plaza‘s location puts it both in the centre of Ljubljana’s commercial activity and within reach of its historical centre.
There’s something special and mysterious about Plaza on first sight. Its monolithic exterior, decorated with a series of intersecting white lines make it look more like a corporate building than a hotel, but only from a distance. The absence of “kitschy” decoration and blaring signs “Hotel Here” is a reminder that we are entering a place where high service standards need no introduction.It is a hotel, set on the city outskirts, that should primarily attract business people but for a number of reasons it has proven to be no less appealing to other sorts of travellers also.
Plaza’s primary aim is to fulfil the demands of the congress and business segment. Its top floor houses adjustable congress halls, with capacity of up to 120 people, which can host events for demanding groups. Cosy, well equipped and nicely arranged halls with some sweeterners such as customisable colour lightning may not make this congress centre the one and only but the real competitive edge in this sense comes in the totality of everything this hotel offers within and on the side. The majority of the hotel rooms are essentially superior meaning they all have a comfortable 27.5m2, there are also 25 junior suites, two business suites and a 155m2 executive suite. In all, 236 guest rooms, more than any other hotel in Ljubljana. The panoramic element, exposing the magnificent view of the Ljubljana basin, is omnipresent - in elevators, rooms, glassy conference halls and the terrace which serves as an attractive social place. The hotel rents the terrace to groups and they certainly wouldn’t turn you down if you are organising a gathering. In fact, Plaza has become increasingly popular for celebrations and weddings. It’s all there: great ambiance, great views and great catering.
Four seasons of delicious food
Plaza’s hotel restaurant is there to please the demands of all its guests. The kitchen is universal and ready to adapt to culturally specific demands but at the same time, tries to present something local in the best possible way. Plaza’s chef offers a set of local specialities based on seasonal ingredients and there is also a selection of predominantly Slovene wines. Anyone who is a little familiar with Slovenian viticulture knows they should be the obvious choice. The hotel restaurant might also surprise you with special promotional events with the best winemakers in the country.
Sustainable and environmentally friendly
The hotel building was designed with energy efficient principles which was atop priority for all the equipment from the elevators to the TV systems. In daily operations they are working on minimising its environmental footprint by separating waste, use of environmentally friendly cleaning supplies and recycled paper products. In addition, the hotel is encouraging its guests to adapt their habits in accordance with environmental efforts.
A good neighbourhood
Plaza is situated straight off the Ljubljana ring road, within the BTC complex, a notorious place for shopping and trading. That’s why it has also become popular with shopping tourists. Additionally, any
kind of entertainment you can imagine is only a minute away. This is also the reason why, with the exception of a fitness studio, there are no wellness facilities inside the hotel. Instead, all hotel guests
are granted free entrance to Atlantis, a waterpark and sauna complex situated right next door. In terms of accessibility, Plaza offers transfers to Ljubljana centre for EUR 5 and the airport is only EUR 20 away. This is in the price range of the cheapest taxi services - only in this case you get a luxurious ride in a BMW. Needless to say, there’s an abundance of parking spots in the hotel garage, accessible by a car elevator, yet another fascinating feature in a hotel with minimalist design but generous offers. And remember - autumn is the time for good deals! Plaza is a superior lodging, food and meeting facility. It is also the tallest hotel in Slovenia so set your expectations high!
