The interior design of 165 rooms was taken care of by the Munich Bureau Wrightassociates and various Ljubljana motives can be found inside the rooms. As Cerović, General Manager of the hotel said, they want to attract a new guest profile to the hotel of the highest category in Ljubljana since the capital city is facing a tourism boom in the last few years. They want to attract guests who are accustomed to the standards of chains of elite hotels, such as Intercontinental, and so far, there were no adequate facilities in the city. The value of the investment is estimated at around 40 million euros or about 250,000 euros per room.
