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 Rooms are a bit outdated - at least the ones on the 3rd floor.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.

This is my favourite hotel. I find it the most beautiful at the Slovenian cost. The view is just excellent. 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

We stay with half board and breakfast was usual with many choices of cheese and cold meat, omelet and veggies, fruits and Slovenian fresh yogurt with homemade jam. We went for dinner at 9 and they serve... More

This Hotel is located just at the point of a peninsula, nearly isolated. No road between seashore and Hotel building. It is a huge complex-11 floors high leaning on a steep hill. You enter right on top Level, where the reception is located and then move downward by Elevator to your assigned floor and room. The rooms are of medium... More
