Boasting slightly dated but charming and characterful decor, Vila Gorenka is a reasonably priced hostel/hotel located only a few minutes from Lake Bled's main hub. It's a great jumping off point for exploring Lake Bled and the surrounding Alps further afoot. Accommodation is clean and spacious and though it appeared to be fully booked, there was rarely a queue for... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August. It is a small guest house, 5 rooms on each level. If you're OK with shared bathroom and toilets, 1 of each on each level and very clean this is a great little place with loads of character. Host Janusz has a very dry sense of humour. Rooms 5 and 10 have... More

We requested a room with a view and were given probably the best room in the whole place, massive balcony, big room, incredible view! Everything else in the hostel was average, it felt like a big old haunted house that hadn't been redecorated since 1950. It had a lot of character, creaky floorboards etc. the bathroom to bedroom ratio was... More

I made a last minute change to itinerary and Janez was kind to accomodate the change with no extra charge. The location is quite good, with bus station about 10 minute walk and the lake Bled sub 5 minute walk away. The rooms have an old appearance and the bathrooms/toilets were shared. But given the location and price, it was... More

Having made a last-minute decision to visit Bled, I was looking for somewhere that was cheap, but still a nice place to stay. Vila Gorenka is simple, but it has everything you need, so long as you are happy to share a bathroom with everyone else on your floor. I was placed in a double room with an eclectic mix... More

Lake Bled was a beautiful place and our stay was only made better by staying here's. The man who ran it was very friendly and helpful with all of our questions. Rooms were comfy and we got WiFi everywhere in the house. Had lots of info on neighboring things to do and the kitchen was clean. He had breakfast available... More

Yes, Janez is very nice and this is why I rated Vila Gorenka so high for service. However, picture this: you have gone back to Mom and Dad's for a holiday as have your 6 siblings, their spouses, and kids. You are all saying on the same hallway, and you have 1 bathroom to share complete with limited hot water.... More

We got a shuttle bus from the airport to Bled, which dropped us right outside Villa Gorenka. When we pulled up I thought we were dropping someone else off; I said to my boyfriend 'we won't be staying somewhere this nice'. The owner speaks great English- - though he didn't speak much when we first arrived. He has some great... More

We stayed here for one night which is not enough because you'll love Bled so much. Quirky old house with lots of charm and feels like lots of history. Floors squeak when you walk, Owner welcoming and helpful with questions we asked. Location was such that we walked to most things we wanted to do with no problems. Close to... More

The owner was very welcoming. The house is old but has a lot of charm. Had free wifi but it only worked downstairs which was quiet annoying for us. The bedroom was clean and spacious with a nice view and the bathrooms were cleaned regularly. There was a fridge facility which was a great touch for us. We paid just... More
