This is a design hotel. And the more design hotels I visit the more I see the commonality. Small rooms and basic amenities. Having said that for Vander the location is outstanding and breakfast top notch.

I had the opportunity to stay at this classy hotel recently. This boutique hotel is located very conveniently in the heart of town. The front staff were very friendly. The room was urban chic...lots of glass, mirrors, and contemporary fittings. It is obvious that the owners have spent a lot of time thinking through each fitting. This is evident even...

Dear valued guest, thank you for your comments and your lovely words. It is true, thinking of how to make guests' stays as comfortable as possible and at the same time to be unique in design was hard work, but it was worth it.

Small design hotel, perfectly located in the old town. Very friendly staff. The cheapest rooms are very tiny so we had to upgrade to a riverside room, which was much more comfortable. The prices are fair. The rooms are beautifully decorated and clean. The roof terrace (with a very small pool) would be nice... if you could access it. We...

Something between luxery and cosy in the historical center of Ljubljana. The roof bar is lovely but small and the view from it is nice but limited. Food in the restaurant is good. You should try Ana Pavlova cake.

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.
