The Hotel Lev opened its doors in 1964 as a first-class hotel. Among its guests were Agatha Christie, Orson Wells, Kirk Douglas, Louis Armstrong Satchmo and Ray Charles. In 1995, the meanwhile privatised Hotel Lev d.d. signed an Operating and Management agreement with Inter.Continental Hotels & Resorts and started carrying out an ambitious renovation programme. The renovation of 95 rooms (floors 6-10) was completed in June 1997; the remaining 78 rooms (floors 2-5) were renovated by September 1998. The renovation of the public areas (lobby, reception, restaurant, bar) and the conference rooms on both the ground floor and the mezzanine level was completed in March 1999 and a new marble façade was added to the building. All 173 elegantly equipped rooms, business rooms and suites as well as public areas were renovated with the utmost respect for safety and in accordance to 5* international standards. Fire & life safety installations were implemented in all guestrooms and guest areas of the Hotel. The Hotel was officially re-branded as Hotel Lev Inter.Continental Ljubljana on October, 27th, 1999, being the first international five-star Hotel in the Republic of Slovenia. In 2000, a new Ballroom and Convention Centre, the largest hotel conference centre in Ljubljana was constructed.
