“Nice hotel, amazing views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

The hotel rooms were nice- nothing amazing, but perfectly good. The star here was definitely having a room with a balcony overlooking the lake- the views are amazing.

Hotel has free boats you can take out on the lake, and since it's right on the water you can jump in the lake for a swim.

Room Tip: It's all about the view, so make sure your room has one.

Thank you yet again for another wonderfull holiday at the Toplice. I cannot understand people who say that this hotel has not moved on. The charm of this hotel is that it still has character. We never ask for the same room when we visit the Toplice because we love the different charm that each room has to offer.However we do have a lake view which is a must.If we wanted a square room with all rooms the same we would stay at another modern hotel. Please dont make the Toplice like all the rest. All the staff are friendly and helpfull although sometimes some struggle with their english. But we should remember we are in another country and english is NOT their first language.I will not go on about how wonderfull everything is here the fact we come again and again sums it all up. For us it is the best place for a pure relaxing holiday. Thank you all again for recharging our batteries. Better go now to look at our dates for next year.

We were warmly welcomed on arrival and our classic car was given safe parking. The views are stunning as the the hotel is adjacent to the lake. However the hotel seems locked in a bygone era with a loss of direction. The gourmet restaurant was closed to guests on two of the evenings and evening meals in the Grand restaurant were bland and expensive. The hotel fails to promote the excellent restaurants in the town within the same group - however because of TA we headed off to their nearby Promanada restaurant which was excellent.

Excellent private area for sunbathing and swimming in the lake

Room Tip: Although we chose a room at the back of the hotel with no view of the lake, the room was quiet (exce...

Dear guest,

Thank you for your review. I am pleased to find out that you were satisfied with the hotel location, staff friendliness and our Promenada Restaurant.

As far as our hotel a la carte restaurant Julijana is concerned, we don't close it in the evening; in your case – if I remember it correctly – there were a large number of guests who wished to have an a la carte dinner which we served in the main restaurant instead.
However, I hope to be able to welcome you again and remain

Sincerely yours,

SAVA HOTELS BLED

We called here on our first afternoon in Bled and had delicious coffee and Bled cake (light vanilla, cream and flaky pastry). The terrace is slightly elevated so we had a marvellous unhindered view of the whole lake and especially the beautiful iconic island with the Church of the Assumption. We called again on subsequent days for an evening meal (having had a horrible meal at another restaurant in Bled - also reviewed). On each occasion the food was good and the service from Deyan was attentive, good humoured and made us feel welcome

Even though the hotel was rated 5 stars, i personally feel it was more a 4 star hotel. front desk was friendly but rest of hotel staff was okay. the breakfast staff was surly. It was difficult to enjoy our showers as water was leaking into the bathroom floors so we had to use the hand held shower every time. We were on the first floor and it was noisy every morning - probably coming from upstairs.

hotel needs to be renovated but at the end of the day, the lake view was magnificent so this definitely compensated on how dated the rooms were. Hotel was situated very conveniently, walkable throughout.

I'd come back just because of the magnificent lake view.

Dear guest,

I would like to thank you for choosing our Grand Hotel Toplice for your stay. Thank you also for your review which helps us to understand guests' feelings and needs better.
Further, I am pleased to find out that you were satisfied with the hotel's location, views and friendliness’ of the front desk staff.

I am sorry about the shower which we will check again to prevent described experiences for the other guests.

May I apologize about the breakfast staff attitude; I agree that it was not acceptable. We will pay even more attention to this issue in future.

Hopefully we will still be able to welcome you again.
Best regards,

Check out the review by "familyoftrippers" "Returning to the Toplice". I'm one of the "trippers" and adopt everything in that extensive review.

If you want to stay at the very best place in Bled this is it. The suites have plenty of room and spectacular views on the lakeside of the hotel. The weather was perfect in June and the hotel was not too busy. The breakfast is great, the indoor pool is fed from an underground mineral spring (very refreshing). The lake is beautiful; the hotel has a private swimming area for the lake and private boats for rowing.

A very special place. fantastic for family/special occasions.

We will be coming back to this hotel forever.

Room Tip: Pay extra for a lakeside room you will not be disappointed.

What a perfect location! If you don't pay extra for the lakeside view you will regret it. It is well worth paying more to stay in such a stunning location. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The food was wonderful, as we sat admiring the beautiful scenery. Nice clean room, but we spent most of the time on the balcony. Lots of places to see and things to do in Bled and the surrounding countryside. We can understand why so many people return to this hotel time after time. We had an excellent holiday & couldn't imagine staying anywhere else if we go back to Slovenia in the future.

Room Tip: Must state when booking a lake side view (which is obviously more expensive).
