The first member of Design Hotels in Slovenia.Vander lies on the river bank of the River Ljubljanica in the lively centre of the old town. Vander's heart beats with the Old part of Ljubljana, where old and new co-exist in a passionate embrace. Everyone can find a place at Vander. Whoever comes to Vander, will leave with the feeling as a local - "Ljubljancan". The external and internal renovation was designed by SADAR + VUGA architects. 16 exeptionally designed rooms are available. All bathrooms offer Molton Brown cosmetics. We offer a perfect sleep with Frette bedding, Moroso armchairs, Diesel and Floss lightening. A roof top terrace with an infinity pool deck is offering a special sensation. All kind of events can be organized on a terrace. The hotel has also wine cellar, restaurant and wine bar. The most exquisite ingredients from Slovenia are used by the Benjamina Launay, our Chef de Cuisine and his endless inspiration. Ecological awareness is not just a fashion statement for us. It's a way of life and business. Welcome.

Located right in city center of Ljubljana at pedestrian street, but you can sleep well as Ljubljana is very quiet city. Another fact to be ready for is that you can’t get with taxi tight in front of hotel but you can either walk either arrange for electric taxi which is free of

Good location in the heart of the citys pedestrian avenues. very nice restaurant, good service. Small rooms and prepare a 7 minute walk in order to get from the hotel to the parking space. The city is worth the visit.

Response from Ana P, Guest Relations Manager at Vander Urbani Resort - a Member of Design Hotels
Responded 2 weeks ago
Dear guest, We wish to first thank you for allowing us to host you during your stay in our beautiful city. The hotel is indeed located in the very heart and soul of the old city center, making it a prime starting point for any travels within Ljubljana, as most of the tourist points of interest are within a maximum of 15 minute walking distance. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed the food and service in our restaurant, and the staff have already received your positive feedback. The building has been around since the 18th century, and although we managed to convert it to a hotel, the room templates had to unfortunately remain the same, which explains the room sizes. As for the transport from between the parking lots and the hotel, the city offers a free electric car service every day between 8 in the morning and 8 in the evening, which can transfer you between the two. We are very happy to hear that the city and hotel were to your liking and hope to see you again. Until then, we wish you safe and happy travels!

Dear Marie, there is a garage near by. We suggest 2 of them because of their proximity to the hotel. One of them is a city garage and the cost is 40 EUR per day and the other one is a garage that is in the Union hotel and the charge is 20 EUR per day, both of them are about 8 min walking distance from our hotel. We do not have any arangment with neither so you pay there directly. We can only offer you a small electric car to come and pick you up from the garage. The service is available from 8:00-20:00, every day. Just give us a call at the reception and we will send one. Kind regards from Vander

Usual stuff - fruit juices, croissants, fresh fruit, cereal. Can't remember if there were hot choices or not, but I do remember the coffee being delicious!

It's also more of a plunge pool, to be honest.

Dear Mr. Adrian, Please allow us to thank you on your shown interest for Vander Urbani Resort. Allow us to suggest the best underground parking garage available near the hotel. It is called Parkirna hisa Subiceva (PH Subiceva). We would like to inform you that we are located in the very heart and soul of Ljubljana which is a pedestrian zone only. We can organize a free transfer for you from garage to our hotel with electric car. All you have to do is give us a call 15 minutes before your arrival. With kindest regards,

Can you get a king size bed?
The rooms are quite small so I think only the junior suite can fit a king-size bed.

"Go big if staying more than 1 night. Small is small at this hotel"
"ask for the largest room available, if you are going to spend any time there other than just sleeping."
"We liked our top floor room with easy access to the roof deck."
"The least expensive rooms are quite small."
