Ultra modern hotel, very comfortable rooms, excellent restaurant. Included breakfast was filling. Hotel staff very knowledgeable about visiting the lakes, and patiently answered all our questions. They also know the local bus company, so arranged for the bus to stop in our village (about 5km out of Entrance #1). We recommend leaving very early to beat the crowds and walk... More

This is one of the nicer properties in the vicinity of Plitvice National Park. The staff was very friendly. The rooms are comfortable, but they are on the small side. The price was reasonable and I would consider the hotel to be a good value. There is a restaurant next door which serves hearty meals and it was very busy.... More

The Hotel Degenija is located just a few miles/kilometers from the northern Entrance, which is Entrance #2 to Plitvice National Park - so location is perfect! We were greeted with smiles and something strong to sip (some type of Liquor) and we needed it as we had just driven from Rovinj that morning. We were given #14 which had a... More

First of all, the staff is super friendly here and instantly made us feel welcome. We found the Croatian people in general to be some of the most welcoming and friendly people -- we love Croatia! The hotel was very clean, decorated with modern furnishings, served a great breakfast and conveniently located near Plitvice Lakes. We would stay again (and... More

We went to visit plitvice and needed a hotel close to it. Clean rooms and a good parking spot for your car that was important for me. There was a very good restaurant close to the hotel. See my restaurant review.

Great for a night close to the park! Great food, service and excellent rooms! Wished we had stayed an extra night just because the hotel was so nice. We drove in the night before, stayed here then woke up early to get to the park and spend the whole day before heading to Zagreb. Jure at the front desk was... More

My family and I (husband + 2 year old) stayed at this property on our way to see the nearby waterfalls. It was better than we expected. It was a very relaxing atmosphere with a very professional staff. The accommodations are brand new and there is care in the details. I especially liked the roll down wooden shutters to make... More

Degenija is a 4* hotel located 10 km from Plitvice on the national road. It makes a good starting point for visiting Plitvice since it is close enough to the park and you can get there first thing in the morning before the crowds. There are some other hotels located even closer but they appear to be frequented by groups... More

Lovely accomodation only a short drive to Plitvice Lakes. Room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The bed was huge and comfortable and the bathroom was very clean and modern. Staff were friendly and helpful. Many options at breakfast and the restaurant next door has good food also. Would definitely recommend this place to stay especially if visiting the national park.
