Excellent service, the reception staff in particular Jurie could not have been more helpful! We decided to return to Zadar a day early and Jurie was kind enough not only to cancel our booking at no extra charge but to arrange for an extra night at our previous hotel in Zadar for us! Would highly reccomend the this idillic hotel... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights, as we were visiting the Plitvice Lakes National Park for a long weekend. We took a bus from Zagreb and arrived in a small quiet village about 10 min from the park, which was mainly houses with guestrooms (sobe), campsites, and this hotel/restaurant. The hotel looks new and everything was immaculately... More

Small family run hotel with spacious rooms and a great "feel". Only been open 2 years so everything is new. Rooms are big and beds are really big. Staff are super friendly and the breakfast is a smallish selection but really good quality. Also ate at the restaurant which is really good too. These guys have really got it right... More

The Hotel Degenjia capped off what was a wonderful experience in the Plitvice Lakes National Park region.The hotel is perfectly situated from the park and has everything. Upon check-in, we were met by a very friendly gentleman at the front desk that helped with our every need. The rooms were fantastic! They were clean, comfortable, good wifi, and tv. The... More

Bit of a surprise to find a very modern style of hotel in a relatively remote location. The nearby Plitvice Lakes does bring a lot of people to the area and this is a great base to explore if you have your own transport. For once parking available really does mean parking available with actual parking bays inside the hotel... More

What a great little homely hotel, the rooms are spacious clean and comfortable. The staff are great and very helpful especially when trying to sort transport out. Right next door to the hotel is a lovely little restaurant which serves a variety of food. I would definitely stay here again.

Hotel Degenija is on the outskirts of the Plitvice Lakes National Park. The pictures don't do the hotel justice, as they make it look like a typical building built in the Soviet era, which it is not. The hotel is quite nice, very clean, comfortable, and the desk help welcomed us with shots of slivovitce (spelling?), the local plum brandy.... More

What a great place! Everything was lovely from the room to the staff and breakfast. The best was one front desk staff in particular who was so friendly and kind. He arranged for a lovely rose petal decoration on our bed and champagne sent to our room as we were on our honeymoon. He also assisted us to find the... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations. It is very convenient to Plitvice Lakes NP and thus, fairly remote. However, the rooms are clean, spacious and modern. The bathroom in my room was quite large and absolutely spotless. The only negative was the soundproofing between the bathrooms could have been better, but it was fine in the rest of the room. I...

About 5 mins drive from the entry to the Park this is a good place to stay, other hotels we saw did not look too great. Comfortable rooms - looked as though they had been recently refurbished with wooden floors & nice bathroom. Dining room not huge - so can get a bit busy a times but breakfast buffet was... More
