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

I stayed at Vila Gorenka early in July and had a very nice stay. The house owner, Janis is a very interesting man with interesting experiences in life. He's also a kind person. The room itself was fairly basic with nothing fancy. It was clean and well ventilated and the location is great. A very short walk takes you right... More

we hadn't meant to spend our first night in Bled but it was easier to catch the 13 Euro bus to Bled than the bus to Ljubljana. We found the tourist office about to close and she called around for rooms for us. The best she could do was 80 Euro/night, a price range that was repeated twice by nearby... More

I chose a private single room. (25 euro) As it was not a very busy season, I could choose which room I wanted to stay. How lucky ! There are about 10 rooms at Vila Gorenka. Every room is decorated differently. The room I stayed is equipped with very retro furniture. Yes I admit that furniture in other rooms look... More

The owner and his wife are very friendly. Breakfast is not restricted to particular hours. It is close to main shops where you can find internet access at A Propos shop and take your walk around the lake. The room was clean, with ample storage and a basin. Shared bathroom OK. The best thing is you can but your food... More

Vila Gorenka was built in 1909 and has it's original features. This sets the tone for the property - it's old, with a dark colour scheme and furniture. Don't be put off by this, just soak up the atmosphere of a house with so much history in a beautiful location. We booked one night on the way from the UK... More
