Reviewed 8 December 2013 via mobile

Highly recommended if you look for cosiness, romance and that chic feeling. It is at the heart of the old city and at the foothill of the castle. a short distance from the 3 bridges. The location is its best edge although most other hotels are within walking distance. Slightly difficult to find. If you have heavy luggage, avoid the cobblestone street on the riverside and use the inside street instead.

I stayed at the Vander for two nights last week and it was quite an experience! Although I found the tin-like chair in my room to be rather odd, the comfortable bed made up for it. I don't think that I've ever slept so soundly in a hotel bed than I did in this one. Plus, the city landscape is great and that helps make the stay even better. The hotel's breakfast and lunch were rather tasty, and I can't wait to go back!

This is truly a great hotel. Located near everything and the people are really nice. The design of the hotel is exquisite and the attention to detail is phenomenal. The attraction of being in the pedestrian zone makes it that much cozy. It's really close to the triple bridge and close to many restaurants and stores. From the terrace you can see the old castle. Would definitely visit again...

When the taxi dropped us off at the bollards and we had to walk the final bit we did wonder where we were going. On arrival at the hotel we were greeted and welcomed as if were friends. This attentive, interested and oh so helpful attitude from all the hotel staff started from initial booking right throughout the weekend. They wanted our party to enjoy Ljubljana which we certainly all did. The rooms very stylish and the breakfast was a delightful journey of discovery. No hesitation in recommending you stay here.

A wonderful hotel run by a local and his "Aussie" wife.

Hospitality is second to none. The rooms are pristine and interesting in their Euro styling. Super roomy and very comfortable with top of the line amenities.
The front of the house staff is accomplished, attentive and efficient.
The breakfast afforded a beautiful selection of European fare and the coffee was tops.
The wine selection in the Bar features local Slovenian wines and they are very good.

I did have a bit of a trip to get my luggage from where the taxi dropped me off to the hotel (as the Old City is walking only) but if you call ahead they will organise to collect you at the edge of the car/pedestrian exchange.

Room Tip: If you want a view of the River, book a River FRONT room, not a river SIDE room!

One of the loveliest hotels I've stayed in. Gorgeous rooms with well kept stylish decor. The staff were excellent, really friendly. Located in a beautiful part of the city on the river.
Stayed on a business trip and feel fully refreshed! If you get a chance, stay here!

When we searched for a hotel for three nights in Ljubljana we soon found Vander Urbani. The free accesible pool on top of the building was the final argument.
When we arrived in Ljubljana city Google navigation tried to deliver us at the Hotel but there is no way you can reach the Hotel by car we found out. So we had to park our car in the nearest parking and walk for 5-10 minutes to check-in. The hotel has a deal with a specific parking so we moved our car again to avoid 39 euros for the car for 24 hours. The hotel parking is 15 euros per 24 hours.

Room:
The room was not very spaceous though big enough. It was very nice decorated with a modern touch. The bathroom was very nice. I would love to have such a shower at home. Wifi is free and fast in the hotel but in our room (21) hardly available which was a nuisance.

Food:
Breakfast was excellent. Very high quality buffet which had an excellence presentation. You can also order from a cart for addional dishes. We can reccomend the pancakes.
We did not have lunch or dinner at the Hotel, but from what we have seen lunch and dinner match breakfast for a fair price.

Staff:
Very friendly and very helpfull. Example: We asked for information on European basketball championship and the reception lady mailed us all info we needed 10 min later. She had sought it all out for us, we loved that.

Pool:
Nice and clean, but smaller then expected and a little cold in our opinion.

Location:
Once you have parked your car location is in the old town and we say it is perfect. From the hotel all intrest points are just a small walk in a pleasent city.

Overall:
We would go there again and we recommend the hotel to others. We paid 130 euros, good value for money. They asked us to call them next time and they promised to beat the BAR price. So a phonecall or email might be worth the trouble if you decide to go there.
