After reading so many positive reviews here, I had really high expectation of the hotel, and I was not disappointed - it well exceeded my expectation! We stayed here for 2 nights only, and I wish we had stayed for a week. The room is spotlessly clean, bright, airy, and has a nice balcony. It must have been newly renovated because you don't see any tear and wear at all. We really like the use of wood in the room - beautiful and makes one feel really calm. The bed is super comfy and the duvets are of very good quality. I'm particularly fascinated by the glass sink in the bathroom - when you see water running down, you're like 'oh no, my feet are gonna get wet!', but of course they don't :-) I think the use of glass sink as opposed to normal white ceramic is so that the bathroom appears visually spacious. Overall, the room was extremely comfy and I was really relaxed there (I'm quite a neat freak, so always feel a bit anxious when staying at hotels, but not at Hotel Laurin!).
What really impresses me of this hotel is the attention to details and the hospitality of the owner. Even though the premise itself is indeed small compared to other hotels, but the interior design of the hotel is so well planned-out that at NO point you feel 'constrained or cluttered' by the smallness (e.g. the transparent sink, the use of mirror in the swimming pool) - I really appreciate this.
We made use of the free upgrade advertised here, so we got a really good deal. But even without the upgrade, I'd still think it's worth every penny. (I've inquired with several other hotels in val Gardena, and the rate of Hotel Laurin is comparatively low, which is really a positive surprise!)
If I were to be picky, I'd say the house cleaning team is a bit too diligent. On one morning at 8:30 am a cleaning lady opened our door and I said we're still in the room; they cleaned the room later when we were at breakfast; but after breakfast when we were getting ready to go out, someone from the housecleaning opened our door again... After this, we learned to lock the door from inside. (We probably should have put a 'do not disturb' sign on the door, on hindsight). But this is really a minor issue and wouldn't affect my willingness to return and stay for a whole week!
I highly recommend this hotel - for the location, rate, ambiance, room, service and charm.
