Feel at home at Vander Urbani Resort, Ljubljana’s first design and boutique hotel. The property is intimate with a warm family-and-friends-feel and surrounded by the excitement of Ljubljana’s creative scene and historic architecture.
At Vander Urbani Resort don’t expect a typical hotel façade or a glass lobby where you can exit from your car. You are in the old town, which is sensitive to traffic.
Vander Urbani Resort is four old town houses in a terrace nestling under Castle Hill on the banks of the River Ljubljanica. From the outside, they look like the other town houses in the old city, but they have been intricately re-designed with a contemporary passion.
Enter a house in a narrow medieval street in the heart of the old town. Exit onto a terrace and wander among the tiled rooftops of Ljubljana with the Castle rising above you. The meandering River Ljubljanica beneath you, takes you away.
Beneath the old bourgeois house facades lie sixteen rooms whose design epitomises perfect living comfort. Yes, that’s Vander. Sensual, at one with the environment, and enhanced to meet the needs of the contemporary traveller.
The interior design follows a continuous line which runs almost imperceptibly from house to house. The charm of the surprising views culminates in the panorama from the roof terrace. This is what Ljubljana is like, too: in love with the old, constantly seeking the new.
To your right are the Three Bridges, and to your left is the Shoemaker’s Bridge – the most romantic bridges in town. Cafes, shops, restaurants and galleries line the embankment, waiting for you to explore them. Suddenly you have the feeling that you are as free as a bird.
