Hotels in Slovenia

Vander, Ljubljana

Secreted in one of the back streets just off the Ljubljanica river, it seems that Hotel Vander has been magically hewn out of a space that nobody knew was there.

Accommodation

The Vander's guest rooms are elegant yet modern: (nearly) fifty shades of grey... and white where it counts. The beds a swathed in fine linens and your night-time comfort is guaranteed on the luxurious French-made mattresses. The windows are all triple-glazed, so even though in the centre of the old town, not a tinkle will disturb your repose.

Dining

Chef Benjamin Launay (as you can see from the pictures above) is on a mission to make the Vander restaurant one of the best in the land. We can vouch for that, as we treated ourselves to dinner on a rainy April evening. I wish I could tell you exactly what we had and what we thought of it... but rather than use my usual notebook and pen, made notes on my Blackberry instead. My now defunkt Blackberry, that is. Suffice to say that, if memory serves (given the wines imbibed), Monsieur Launay is definitely on the right track.

The restaurant

 

Unlike many restaurants with aspirations of 'fine dining', lunch here is a very welcoming and affordable affair. Two courses for 10 euros or three courses for 12 or 14 euros represents excellent value for some very good cuisine.

We guarantee the best rates offered by the hotel, at any time of the year.
