Vila Gorenka is nothing fancy, but it is a comfortable place to stay. It is in a nice old house up the hill from the lake. It is an easy walk up and down to the lake and old town. Janez, the proprietor, is a kind, elcoming fellow. Reserve room #10. It has a grand balcony, with a lovely view... More

Worth staying here. I had a sink in my room and the bathroom was one end of the corridor while the toilet was at the other. This turned out fine. The hosts were happy to produce a vegetarian breakfast, which I took on 2/3 occasions. There's a steep stairway up from the lake next to the hotel that has the... More

Stayed at Vila gorenka twice during our time in Bled (trip in between to neighbouring lake for a few days). The first stay - down stairs room with en suite, basic but ok, nice bathroom. Pretty noisy in the morning hearing the owner shouting around the house from right outside the door. However our second stay was a disaster! Our... More

We stayed here as it seemed like a good affordable option (we booked quite late, so were quite limited) we had read other reviews that said guests had use of the kitchen. This is why we booked here instead of a b&b. However, when we arrived, we found this wasn't the case. Guests can only use the kitchen if they... More

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
