My fiancé was here with s friend and asked me to write this as a warning. The hotel was quite small, but nice and clean. BEWARE, the rooms have toilets with completely transparent glass wall and door to the room. You cannot do anything in there "in private". There are things you dont want others to see!

This hotel was a real surprise, it's even better in person than in the photos. - Centrally located, the city is literally outside your front door. - Charming setting, well appointed with a beautiful view from the roof. - Great value for money. - Lovely continental or hot breakfast on offer. - Popular with the locals, which is always a...

Okay, I will admit: the staff is efficient and helpful, and the location is perfect. But this hotel is bizarre. Already noted by another traveler is the glass wall between the bathroom and bedroom. Note photo of foil-covered chair. The queen-sized bed is obviously made up of smaller beds, pushed together. The "couch" is an extra bed. The lobby and... More

Dear Valued guest Thank you for taking your time to write a review for us. All of the hotel features are a part of the concept of the futuristic design.

First of all, let me start by saying that the location and the staff of this hotel are absolutely perfect. Friendly and English speaking, the staff did all they could to make our stay memorable and Ljubljana is not a big city but the hotel couldn't be more in the centre then it is now while maintaining a nice calm...

For the Slovenian standards, the Vander Urbani was a great choice. You won't find a Ritz or a Four Seasons in Ljubljana, so you can't necesarily expect that level of service either. Upon arrival to my room, the room had a foul stench of sewage. I was able to switch rooms, but the room was incredibly loud. The location of... More

I spent 3 nights in this hotel. It is in the walking zone of the city, very close those tourist attractions........ bridges. Staffs are very friendly and helpful. If you drive in Ljubjana, parking is just 5 mins walk.

I stayed several times over the last 3 months at Vander Urbani. - a great location, actually I think the best hotel location to enjoy the very central river side of Ljubljana - a very friendly and great service - a superb terrasse for drink

The hotel is modern, with a great design and is in the middle of the old town. The rooms are designed in a nice way, if you like toilet and shower with glass walls, for a couple it is not really uncomfortable but if you stay with a friend it is may a strange feeling. The breakfast was good with... More

This boutique hotel is in a great location, right in the centre of the 'old town ', with terrific views of the beautiful city of Ljubljana. It's clear that the owner wanted something that stands out from the crowd in terms of design. The reception area gives way to a staircase that wouldn't be out of place in an Oscar's... More

The hotel is really in the very centre of town and the pedestrian part. You can leave the car in a public parking but the city organises some small electrical cars with driver that can pick you up and bring you to the hotel and back to garage when you leave. The hotel can organises this. Very nice design and... More
