“Ideally located hotel with comfortable rooms, friendly service and excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

This is a mix between restaurantand a guest house. The rooms were spacious and comfortable (no view though, but you're in the back of the villa, therefore less exposed to noise). The terrace is extremely pleasant for breakfast or dinner, just by the shore of the lake. It's ideally located to take the walk up to the castle or visit the main church. The food was very good, including great desserts (strawberry napoleon and chocolate torte). Service was friendly and efficient. We'll definitely try to stay here when we go back to beautiful Bled.

I stayed in February 2013. Location is perfect. Big plus - WiFi and free parking behind hotel.
Food is very good. I canot say anthing bad about stuff. Vice versa, very friendly and nice people, always trying to help. Room was OK, with a lake Bled view. It was nice to walk along the lake too. Some people may be annoyed by the church bell, but for me it brought more charm.

Highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Best rooms are with the lake view, of course.

We stayed here just for one night, but were welcomed warmly into this unique place to stay. Our room was a good size with two separate beds and a small kitchenette. For the price and the location you can't beat this place. It was a little loud (as it was really hot out and there is no A/C so we slept with the windows open) with one of the main roads just infront of the property. But, I am sure if you slept with the windows closed, there would be no issue. Two minute walk to the lake and surrounded by restaurants, we loved this little place.

Great location on Bled Lake -- we had a view of the lake and were directly above the bar but the noise and lights never bothered us. The room was fairly large with a fridge, tv, air conditioning, plenty of outlets, and a nice-sized closet. We even had a lovely private deck overlooking the lake. The shower had enough hot water and pressure, but the bathroom slightly smelled due to a poorly working shower drain. We found Goran and some of the waiters quite helpful. Fabulous breakfasts -- don't miss their freshly-squeezed orange juice!

We stayed here two nights. The welcome was not very warm. Our room smelled horrible. The wi-fi didn't work. Had a view of lake bled from our room, but we were over the bar and it was very loud. We ate dinner at the restaurant, the food was mediocre, and it seemed that the servers could care less that they were waiting on you. We felt like the place was trying too hard to be a nightclub, rather than a hotel and restaurant. Don't care to go back.

As a young couple we fancy small hotels, and this was definitely the best. A small hotel situated right on the lake, with a one of the best restaurants in Bled and a very helpful staff. Breakfast is served on the terrace outside, in a most quiet and serene atmosphere.
