This hotel has taken a lot of time to focus on the details. From the ceiling beams to the lighting, the shark skin wall that is prominently featured in pictures, and a very scenic rooftop pool, anywhere you look you're bound to find something intriguing. Our room had a bathtub that overlooked the river and it was the perfect thing...

I checked into Vander once before and now switched hotels from a horrible experience that I didn't want to relive with another hotel here in Ljubljana. The staff and receptionist were very friendly and even offered me a coffee on the house upon arrival, as I was waiting for my room to be cleaned and finished-up. The interior of the...

The hotel is situated in the old center of Ljubljana, on top of the main promenade by the river. It provides an excellent starting point for sightseeing, walks and dining. The design of the hotel is superb, especially taking into account that they worked with an older building. The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant, they go out of their...

Impressive design qualities and fantastic location, but a certain authenticity missing in the service. The most comfortable beds ever, but missing the top half. A duvet would have been divine. We're offered what looked like airline blankets and the room, mid winter, was cold, the heating not fully working.Shame. Great place, just needs a little love!

Dear valued guest, thank you for all your comments. We are aware that people use different blankets, duvets at home, that is why we selected only the best for you. Blankets and linen seem very thin at first glance, but they are made to give extra comfort and warmth, as they react to body temperatures. Kindly be informed that front...

I have fallen in love with Ljubljana, such a wonderful small historical City with so much to offer. This hotel was perfect for us. We love good design and it really does push the boat out with that. Being right by the river surrounded by excellent restaurants was a plus as well. The breakfast was excellent and couldn't fault our...

Central strategic positioning, hotel trendy and cozy. We had a very pleasant stay. Room really nice, furnished in a very particular way. Kind personnel, excellent breakfast (also with great attention to gluten free needs). Price in line with the quality offered and the very comfortable location (one of the main streets of the old city, alongside the river).
