“Easy travel motel for Plitvice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Stayed here for a trip to Plitvice Lakes. Was a bit confused about the location as Google indicated the address was in the park like Jezera and other hotels. Good value though and the hotel has a pretty good menu of croatian dishes in the restaurant. Simple and a bit basic but does the job when you're just interested in seeing the national park.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Stayed for two nights to visit the nearby Plitvice Lakes. Hotel is right off the main road, and about a ten minute drive to lake entrance #1. The hotel is very basic: clean rooms and bathrooms, hot water, AC. There is (slow) internet, though ONLY through a cable; so bring a laptop as it is the only device that will work with the connection. Beds were quite comfortable, and additional blankets are available upon request if it gets cool.

There is a restaurant at the hotel serving throughout the day. Food is basic, mostly meat and some pasta and potato dishes; if you are a vegetarian you are limited, we brought our own food for some variety. There is a mini-market looking shop on site but we never saw it open during our stay.

The staff is VERY helpful and accommodating, and will offer suggestions for nearby sites. We reserved a room with half-board, when we decided to eat out and missed the included dinner the staff prepared a lunch for us to take out the next day, so we did't pay for food we missed.

The hotel is a good stop for the lakes, but I wouldn't stay for more than that as there isn't much else around.

Room Tip: Rooms located directly off of the stairs might begin to smell from the kitchen and dining rom below...

Not what I was expecting based on their website. I would not recommend staying here I would continue on after seeing the lakes. We were told there is internet but that only meant a plugin we could plug into if we had our laptop. On the plus side it is very clean and th people in town are very friendly.

The Grabovac hotel situated 10 Km north from entrance #1 was basic, clean and the restaurant staff were very friendly, especaily the manager...thank you
Beds were comfy, showers were hot and area quiet, no elevators but only three floors.
Not much around the hotel, but ample parking.
No internet, so do your communication before arriving.
Check with front desk before you get your passes for the park, they may advise you to buy a one day pass at the gate and they will arrange a second day comp if interested. (not sure if this is all the time or just what)
This hotel has no frills but is adaquate
The lakes are absolutely amazing, stay as long as you can if you enjoy nature

The room was small and basic -- nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. I thought it was good value for money. It is an easy 10 minute drive from the entrance to Plitvice Lakes, so it is a good place to stay if you're just there to see the lakes. They were nice enough to give us a free late checkout, which was convenient.

The hotel is situated only 8km from the first entrance of the national park Plitvice lakes. It has a restaurant, buffet bar, small supermarket, some souvenirs, ATM and letter box so it's also a stop for passers-by not just hotel guests. I was very satisfied with my double room, it was spacious enough, nice, the furniture seemed recently new (apart from an old style TV), very well heated, clean, the bathroom had a big shower and all the necessary toilletries. The breakfast and dinner were very good, a choice of two menus for dinner. I booked a weekend deal, so we had halfboard, and the tickets for the national park for the entire weekend included in the price. It has a free car park too. All in all, very satisfied.

We had a family room which was quite large and decent. Everything in the room was clean, the beds were fairly good.

Breakfast at the hotel was not quite up to par with other 3-4 star hotels during our trip.
