“We are proud to open the first international upper upscale hotel in Ljubljana” says Arno Schwalie, Area Vice President for the Rezidor Hotel Group. The Ljubljana opening complements Carlson Rezidor’s active expansion in the Eastern European region and emerging markets.

Featuring 15 floors, the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel, Ljubljana dedicated the penthouse and the roof terrace to conferences and events. The 15th floor conference center offers a remarkable view of Ljubljana. This view is even more impressive on the terrace above that can be booked for special occasions. Down in the lobby, the Plaza Café not only offers coffee and tea specialties, but also cocktails mixed by an award winning bartender. The Plaza restaurant combines international cuisine with traditional Slovenian food, using local ingredients and flavors. A shopping area is located just around the corner and the Atlantis water park is only 300 meters away. Guests can also book the latest Tesla Model S for a chauffeur ride offering noiseless, emission-free mobility and a unique sports car experience.
