We originally picked this hotel because I loved the idea of having a tiny infinity pool on the roof of a hotel in the middle of the city. When we arrived it was raining and then they also told us the tiny pool is under maintenance and therefore closed. I however still think it looked great even though it wouldn't have been fit to actually swim in due to its size. I loved the hotel even with the pool being closed, the rooms very smaller than tiny but they were very modern, stylish and clean. The Molton Brown bath products wee also a nice touch. The breakfast wasn't huge and they were running out of stuff quite early, but everything they had was delicious. The staff was very helpful throughout the stay. The location is very nice as it is right next to the river and in the city centre so very close to all the shopping and restaurants and within walking distance from the Ljubljana castle. The only downside is that there is no way of getting very close to the hotel by car. We parked our car in the garage recommended by the hotel and decided to walk from there. We didn't think that the distance sounded so bad, but there are stairs and then there was some road work so that we had to take a detour to reach the hotel. I recommend you taking them up on the offer to come and help you with the luggage, then you only have to do one set of stairs and then they will drive you to the hotel with a little cart. We learned that the hard way and were more than happy to use this service after checking out. The hotel has a deal with the parking garage so you get it for a bit cheaper (for 15€) than you'd get it otherwise.
I highly recommend this hotel, we really enjoyed our stay in Ljubljana and the Vander Urbani Resort.
