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... More

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... More

I'm from New York/New Jersey and this hotel would be a hit in any major US city, even Manhattan.

Beautiful Boutique Hotel in the heart of the old town of Ljubljana at the riverbank. Very warm and friendly welcome from the staff and a welcome drink! Rooms are nicely designed and merge tradition with modernism. Very good breakfast menu and perfectly sighted for a morning run to the castle

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.

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.
