Travelling with a friend we arrived into Plitvice via a city bus from split. One of the girls kindly agreed to pick us up from the bus stop so we didn't have to find the place while lugging our bags around which was really appreciated. Accommodation was very homely. Dinner was amazing, we had fresh fish one night and mixed... More

We stayed here for just the one night while travelling between Split and Zagreb. The villa is a little tricky to find at first, head up the drive to No. 45 and it'll be on left of the car park area at the top of the hill. I'd say the experience is authentic, from the food to the accommodation. The... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Plitvice Park/lakes. Easy walk (10 minutes) to the park. Small and intimate with 6 rooms. Very clean and comfortable. Nice outdoor patio and cozy dining room. Food is prepared fresh and is delicious for example fresh local cheese, fresh grilled trout, farm fresh eggs, fresh made jams. The host is ready and willing... More

We loved the experience of staying here. Off the beaten track...a little of an adventure. Make sure you share in their dinner -- FANTASTIC! This is a local experience and truly added to our trip through Croatia and Slovenia.

My wife and I stayed here one night on the way from Split to Zagreb. Our hostess, Helena, was friendly, knowledgable and turned out to be a great cook. She went out of her way to take care of our needs and make our stay the best possible, even giving us tips on the best views of the waterfalls. The... More

We stayed there for one night, after staying at the wonderful Hotel Degenija close by. Unfortunately they didnt have rooms for the second night and we had to move. After looking at several disapointing Zimmers we ended up at the Villa Mukinja. The very skilled saleslady Helena convinced us that they provide the best value in the region as their... More

You can walk to the world-famous Plitvice lakes from this small hotel (but it is downhill and so you will have to walk back when you're bone-tired after tramping around the stunning lakes - but that's a small price to pay). The hotel staff were very friendly, and like just about everyone else we met in Croatia, fluent in English.... More

As with other reviewers, I experienced the same disappointment with no hot tub and no sauna available. The proprietors need to either stop advertising these facilities or make them available. On the positive side, the food is very good and the staff attentive. All in all, I do feel this place is over-priced. There is plenty of accommodation around Plitvice... More

Stayed as a family of 4 for one night in a room that was tired, outdated and, whilst clean, did not feel "nice" because of the age of the inclusions in the room and the linen/blankets. The carpet, particularly, seemed like it was "pet friendly". There was no TV in the room; that's fine with us, but annoying that they... More
