Room was modern, comfortable bed. Excellent breakfast, buffet, but also you can order something from list of 10 meals. There is a restaurant next to... More

Nothing special, just a very pragmatic choice to visit Plitivice starting early in the morning thanks to convenient location. Modern hotel but no charm whatsoever; only one !! power outlet per room so quite challenge to recharge iPhones, iPads and co.

We stayed 1 night, and had a spacious room on the top floor. Juri at the front desk was a great host, with a welcome drink for us and information about Plitvice Lakes. The hotel is a short drive to the Lakes. It is on the main road so easy to find, but set back from the road. Parking is... More

Situated in a tourist hotspot, the Plitvice NP, and surrounded by a rural area bearing all the scars of the 1990's war. Hotel Degenija is a great place to stay, only 5-10 mins from the main entrance 1, and 10-15 mins from entrance 2. It is a modern hotel, very well maintained. Our double room was excellent, ample space, well... More

We stayed for only one night. Upon arrival at 4pm, the guy on reception treated us to some home made slivovitz (well me, the wife is not into liquor!) before taking the bags to the room. Within half an hour he'd told us how to get to a waterfall viewing place which wasn't crammed with tourists, and lent us a... More

Would have given this hotel 4 stars had the internet worked in our room. It seemed to work elsewhere in the hotel. This hotel has a great location - on the main road to the park (5 minutes away). Rooms are comfortable with all the basic needs. Breakfast is very basic. Mario at the front desk was the highlight of... More

The hotel is located a few kilometres outside the park and makes a great base for exploring the lakes. Our room was of an exceptionally high standard and the breakfast was very good, providing a range of options to suit varying international tastes. Be sure to chat with reception staff to get recommendations on how best to visit the lakes.... More

Excellent room, excellent staff, great breakfast...but the walls need better insulation. Listening to your neighbour doing all that can be done in the toilet is a little off-putting. Asides from that well worth the stay (lakes are around 10 mins away). Note re. lakes, eat early and depart immediately as they get packed quickly and unless you enjoy being behind... More

Right from the start when Marco sent a car to get us from the busstop in the pouring rain, we were made most welcome. I liked the rooms, the veranda bar, the restaurant and then the lakes, wonderful. Thanks to all the staff.
