Stayed a couple of nights here and really enjoyed the time. The hotel couldn't be better located, right on the river in the centre of town, the room is comfortable with some quirky design features, and the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Good breakfast, too. Ljubljana is a lovely city and I'll definitely return both it the city and to Vander.

Room tip: Taxis can't drive right up to the hotel, but stop a hundred metres or so away at the start of the pedestrian zone.

We are thrilled you enjoyed your time here. The hotel truly is located in one of the best possible spots in the city, right in the heart and soul, in the old town center of Ljubljana, where anything one might want to see or visit, be it shops or restaurants, bars or museums, no more than a stone's throw away.
As we are a part of the Design Hotel chain, we realize that the room designs in our hotel might not be for everyone, and are always very happy to hear our guests enjoy the somewhat design layout and furniture.
Our staff always do their very best to make every moment special for our guests and your compliments have been forwarded.
We are very much looking forward to your return to Ljubljana and our hotel so we may create even more memorable moments!

Perfect central location in the heart of the city. Beautiful interior design, the view in the riverfront room of the river is fairly blocked due to all the parasols from the bars outside. The noise can be fairly loud at times during the evening but didn't bother neither I or my partner. The hotel staff are wonderful at making you feel welcome and were very helpful when it came to booking taxis for us. all in all was a lovely stay and will definitely be returning.

Room tip: River front rooms are very big in size. Also perfect for couples.

Dear Guest,

allow us to thank you for staying with us during your visit to Ljubljana.
You're absolutely right, the hotel has one of the best location sin the city. The very heart and soul of the old town part. We are very glad to hear that you enjoyed the design of the hotel and rooms! Our hotel is a member of the Design Hotel chain, so the design is certainly different than what you see in most other hotels.
Our position does of sometimes come with a lot of noise outside, due to the busy streets populated by bars, restaurants and shops, however the noise does not carry on to the night, making the day lively, but the night calm.
Our staff is always happy to do their utmost best to ensure our guests feel truly welcome.
Hopefully we can make you feel welcome again in the future, and until then, happy and safe travels!

We have just returned form the Vander Urbani Hotel having had a 3 night stay there. Can honestly say we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here . All the staff are so friendly and helpful . The location of the hotel couldnt have been better - right in the heart of everything
As it was my birthday we were presented with delicious cakes to go with our complimentary sparkling wine - lovely touch , thankyou very much !
My only criticism ( and this is my personal feelings) I found the glass bathroom a bit hard to get used to ( sorry!) apart from that we would recommend your lovely hotel without any hesitation . Thankyou for helping make our break and my birthday in such a lovely city very enjoyable - hope you all have a great xmas and a happy new year !

Dear Simone,

the pleasure was all ours. We are grateful you decided to stay in our hotel for your special day! It is wonderful to hear that you enjoyed the birthday surprise and we sincerely hope that you enjoyed your visit to Ljubljana to the fullest.
With the hotel in the very heart and soul of Ljubljana, as you mentioned, one simply has to make use of the endless possibilities of shops, museums, bars and restaurants.
As we are a part of the design hotels chain, our furniture is slightly different than what most other hotels have. As such, we understand that the style may not be for everyone. The glass wall can, and is, of course covered on all sides with the curtains, that provide all the necessary privacy.
Thank you very much for the kind wishes, and we wish you all the best as well!
Hopefully we get to see you again, perhaps on another celebration. And until then, we wish you happy and safe travels!

Located in a pedestrian-only zone on the riverbank in Ljubljana's old quarter, the Vander Urbani Hotel offers spacious, comfortable and tasteful en suite rooms a short walk from the centre of this beautiful little city. It features an attractive restaurant and an outdoor bar area where light meals are also served in a precinct filled with dining and drinking options. It is 50 metres from one of Ljubljana's main streets boasting quaint bridges historic churches, public buildings and small speciality shops. Across the river is a a major square and further shopping outlets, including some widely recognised names, notable buildings and expansive parks. The citadel fortress which overlooks the city is only a few hundred metres away, albeit up a steep slope, but a funicular railway is also available. Guests arriving by car are required to leave their vehicle (or taxis) outside the restricted foot-traffic area but the distance from the drop-off points from either side of the river to the hotel is only a few hundred metres.

Slovenia is primarily forested and contains a number of spectacular lakes, most notably Bled, which are easily and speedily accessed by a modern and well maintained road network. Bled is less than an hour by road from central Ljubljana and is an essential destination for visitors, however, weekends are exceptionally busy and entry to the town can be slow.

While the demise of Adria Airways ( former national carrier) imposes some, probably temporary, limitations on accessibility to Slovenia, Ljubljana can also be reached by road from Trieste in Eastern Italy in just over an hour by road. A number of companies offer international taxi transfers and private drivers can provide this service for a relatively modest fare and certainly much more cheaply than an airline alternative, given the absence of serious completion on this route (martin111@siol.net is highly recommended for day trips and transfers).

Facilities and service at the Vader Urbani are first class. Food and beverage options in the main restaurants are wide ranging and breakfasts, which are included in the tariff, both generous and varied. The staff were, without exception, highly professional, helpful and engaging and special mention is made of Nika S, Nika R, Ksenja, Leon, Aljaz and Ziva. Thank you for an exceptional stay.

Dear Pamela,

first, allow us to thank you for staying with us during your visit to Slovenia.
It is exactly as you say. We are located right in the soul of the old town city center of Ljubljana, one of the best possible locations for tourists. Whatever it is a guest might want to see, one can get to in a heartbeat.
A visit to lake Bled is definitely one of the most popular things for our visitors, along with a possible visit to the Postajna caves, the fertile vineyard areas of Goriška Brda and others. Martin is our personal driver, and is more than happy to take our guests on said trips, as well as provide them with some additional insights along the way.
We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed our hotel! Nothing beats a delicious breakfast in the morning, and we hope you also made use of the possibility to order some omelettes from our excellent chefs.
Our staff prides itself on making every guest's experience as memorable as possible, and your compliments have certainly been forwarded to the aforementioned members.
It was a pleasure to host you, and we hope to see you again! Until then, we wish you happy and safe travels!

My husband and I stayed here for two nights during our Honeymoon and it was perfect! The location was great since it is centrally located in the Old Town meaning we could walk to everything in a matter of minutes. Room was surprisingly large, and they even gave us a very sweet fruit basket upon check-in when they realized we were there for our honeymoon. Highly recommend!

Dear Guest,

first and foremost, allow us to thank you for allowing us to host you during such a special occasion!

We are indeed located in the very heart and sould of the Ljubljana old town center, a location filled with beautiful sights, which we hope you managed to enjoy fully!
Now only is everything one might want to visit within a short walk away, the hotel can also arrange for the city's free electric car service to pick you up and take you to the outskirts of the pedestrian area.
It is our wholesome aim to make sure that our guests feel welcomed, and we are glad you enjoyed the little surprise at your check in.
We hope to see you again to give you more memorable moments such as the ones you had this year, and until then wish you a happy new undertaking!
