The first wooden hotel in Ljubljana will importantly contribute to the sustainable development of Slovenian tourism and the comfort of the hotel guests. The sustainable approach will be achieved with the components of the hotel’s interior. Some pieces of furniture, for example, will be made from recycled materials like the Nico Less chair and all the lighting will be in LED technology. In addition, the hotel will provide electric vehicle charging stations for hotel guests.
Wud Hotel’s 25 rooms will be 25 to 40 square meters in size. Ceilings in the rooms will be partially covered with wood, while the walls of all of the rooms will be decorated with photos, made by one of the most famous Slovenian costume designers Alan Hranitelj. The hotel will be located only 3 kilometres from the city centre, thus, set in the city, but still just a step away from nature. Next to the hotel, there is a newly built park called Muste, which is only 150 meters walk to Ljubljanica river. By the river, there is a route, leading to the city centre, suitable for either walking or cycling.
Company BIT CENTER, which owns also the Bit Center Hotel in Ljubljana, got an idea to build a wooden hotel, as Vasja Vavpetic, the hotel manager at BIT CENTER told for Kongres Magazine: “Because of the accelerating tourism growth in the whole region, because of the innovative, sustainably oriented and fast construction (only 6 months construction time), and because of the microlocation’s recent development (Muste Park was being built while at the same time a construction of several sports center in the immediate vicinity began).” The investment is 2 million euros worth and the hotel is supposed to start working from the 1st of August 2019.
