The Grand Bernardin is located on a cliff overlooking the sea, a little off the city centre of Portoroz. It is one of those hotels where the entry level floor is in the middle- not the ground.. (another such entry is that of the Oberoi in Gurgaon, India). It is built in the classic style and very well kept- it... More

You can tell that this hotel has some years under its belt, nevertheless the quality doesn´t suffer. The rooms are impeccably clean and have been well modernised. The view from the balcony is great and gives a superb atmosphere. The indoor pool is very nice, something special with the salt water. Personnel is very friendly and always ready for service... More

Hotel has an impressive location - it looks as if the hotel was chiseled from the cliff it is leaning on. The view from top floors is also sublime. I do recommend you book a room in one of the top floors. Rooms are a bit outdated - at least the ones on the 3rd floor. However they are clean.... More

This hotel has it all. Great views over the ocean, access to the beach as you walk out of the elevator (access and beach towels included), free indoor swimming pool, spa and a very friendly and helpful staff. It is a short walk into the nearby town of Piran, and there is also a free shuttle for those who have... More

During the last 25 years I have visited several times Grand Hotel Bernardin, whether for business or holidays. I like Slovenia, Julian Alps, pleasant Slovenes and Istrian cuisine. This year we stopped here with friends from the automobile club to relax after demanding hikes in the Julian Alps. This Hotel is located just at the point of a peninsula, nearly... More

Beautiful city good hotel with good ambience and service. Courteous staff. In all a pleasant experience . I would strongly recommend this place to all tourists and friends. Why is portoroz not so well known among tourist circles? Surely should be on itinerary of travellers to Northern Italy and while in portoroz the base should be Grand Bernardin.

Sitting at the the terrace in the morning, have a cup of coffee, looking at the see you can feel the calm and all problems just disapeare. Sometimes I drive to this hotel just to have a coffee there.

It's one of the few hotels where you enter the hotel on the Top floor and go down to your rooms. Excellent Conference rooms, fantastic view of the Mediterranean sea. very good rooms and very good staff. Unique experience for our conference group was a grand welcome by traditional dance by senior couples while we were registering! Location of this... More

we came there for a conference, not sightseeing. The rooms remember the communist times, but they don't miss anything important. We had a view on the bay and that was breathtaking. Restaurant was cosy due to the low season, we enjoyed the food. the pool is tiny with a great view and salty water! conference facilities are very practical
