“Loved it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

We spent two nights here and two nights at another hotel at the end of a trip around Slovenia but wished we had stayed here the whole time!! We loved this hotel. It is new and fresh and modern, the design is really great. The staff were super friendly and helpful and made us feel right at home. We quite liked the bathroom design with the clear glass, it was fun!! We had read other reviews about night club noise which was why we didn't book our entire stay here (we are light sleepers!!) but we didn't hear any noise at all. The roof top pool is small but lovely in summer, we enjoyed the cocktails. We ate in the restaurant and also enjoyed it. Overall we loved our stay, so nice to see these kind of boutique hotels. Would highly recommend and definitely return.

We've been so lucky to discover this small hotel. Excellent situation. We have tried a bigger and a smaller room. Bigger rooms are really worth the deal. Smaller rooms too but they are really small - ok for one or two nights, a bit too small if you stay longer. The bathroom are excellent in both categories, even if in the small rooms obviously the bathroom is also pretty small. Wi fi in all the rooms. Swimming pool on the rooftop is also really really small, but once you are in the water it's perfect to order a cocktail and enjoy the view over the rooftops. Don't miss the VANDER restaurant - great food and great service. By the way, the service is VERY friendly in the whole place (hotel and restaurant). Very clean, very convenient, very design. We'll be back!

Room Tip: Look on Internet for good rates. Try to get a bigger room as the first category (small) are pretty...

Great modern hotel right in the centre of the beautiful city of Lubljana, perfect for exploring the city. The staff were friendly and could not have been more helpful especially Andre on reception. The room was on the small side but that was to be expected considering the location of the building, it had all mod cons and the bed was extremely comfortable. The only quibble we would have is the bathroom which is situated behind a glass wall at the side of the room, not for the bashful.....!!!
Having said that we had a great stay at this hotel, and we would recommend this hotel. Breakfast is served in the restaurant , great choice of foods and very tasty. There is also a rooftop terrace with a small pool and great views of the city.

I stayed at the newly opened Vander Hotel (celebrating their 1st Anniversary this month). This is truly a gem among jewels. The location is in the heart of the old Town overlooking the river and practically next to the triple-bridge. The staff as so friendly and always available to help answer questions. The rooms were of the highest standard, although I found the glass shower room and toilet a novelty I felt there was little privacy if a couple were sharing. (I was on my own on a business trip).. the food was excellent in the restaurant, plenty to choose from for even the most fastidious palette and the martini's in the Cocktail bar would have even impressed Bond..!!

The rooftop swimming pool is delightfully secluded where you can relax, with a drink or read a book.

I would definitely recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: River view would be my recommendation

Stayed here recently with my sister for 4 nights - really fantastic hotel for the price point with a beautiful roof terrace. Would definitely stay here again, staff were very nice and location is good.

Some small niggles in that the restaurant is closed all day on Sunday and the turn down service of the rooms needs more attention (used glasses never taken away?) Only truly odd thing is the bathroom which had a glass panel into the room and a glass door offering zero privacy! I slept badly as I found the bed too soft and it gave me back pain but my sister had no issues.

Walls were clad in quilted aluminum, the bathrooms separated by a wall of glass and the rooms only chair, wrapped in aluminum. In the future, they hope to add towel racks but the vagaries of Italian suppliers were blamed for this lack of amenity.
The bed was extremely comfortable, the breakfasts: resplendent and the rooftop plunge pool devine for its view of rooftops and river. The staff couldn't have been more helpful. Room 220€/night.

We stayed here with two adults and four children on our family trip through Central Europe and it was simply amazing.
There was a problem with our reservation (we were able to book a room with Expedia which was way too small for the six of us), but they solved it rightaway.
Staff was very friendly, breakfast was excellent (with a menu to choose from - complimentary) and there even is a (small) pool on the top floor with splendid city views.
When our four children were asleep, we ordered room service from the restaurant below, which was also excellent.
I would recommend this hotel (and the city als well) for a romantic city trip.
