“Comforable, but Caters to Tour Groups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2011

We stayed for two nights and the room was fine. We found it through TA and prepaid through Expedia. The hotel had scads of bus groups staying for only one night which made the lobby chaotic, especially when a Slovenian dance group was giving a performance there on a Wednesday night. The location, steps from the lake's edge walk is a plus. There are lots of trees between the lake and the hotel and we were not high enough (first floor) to see the lake although we paid for a lake view. Make sure you book an upper floor. The breakfast was good, but once again, there were hordes of tour participants on a short schedule rushing around. We drove to Lake Bled and the parking lot is rather limited at the hotel. For the money, there may be better choices, if you don't mind walking a bit to get to the lake. The Sava Hotel group owns much of the property around the lake, and you may find a better hotel. Their best hotel, Grand Hotel Toplice has better views of the lake, but it is more expensive. We will stay there next time.

Room Tip: Ask for at least the third floor or higher on the lake side.

Hotel Park is situated almost on the lake no more than 50 metres. The staff on reception could not be more friendly or helpfull and the waiter/ waitress similarly. Lake Bled is on of the most beautifull places we have visited and because it is relatively small can be walked round in 2 hours if you want, although a mini train service does work. If you are travelling with any of the majot holiday companies, Thompson Inghams etc. the reps are very well organised and work together in planning events. If you want authenticity avoid the Irish bar in the centre (No Guiness: no Irish whisky, no one spoke English)
If you intend visiting the capital Lubljiana there are plenty of cheap local busses so you dont need to book on a trip.
Bled has one weather forecast for the whole year. CHANGEABLE. dont forget to bring a lightweight waterproof jacket because even on the sunniest days the weather can change and you get soaked, we did.

....but one (1) yes, just 1 sliver of soap (2.5 cm x 1.25 cm x 0.3 cm) for 2 people to wash and bathe with is a joke. Air conditioning non-existent. Light bulbs were out and took a full day to replace (apparently no maintenance staff available in the evening). Desk staff extremely helpful and responsive but there wasn't much they could do. Food adequate, but some dining room staff rather abrupt . Obviously, the hotel caters to tours (we were on a Smartours trip), and feels that the view, which was spectacular, and the location overcomes some of these defects, but they don't. They might want to rethink their request to rate them on Trip Advisor!

The hotel looked out over Lake Bled with its turquoise blue water which was picture postcard with a church sitting on an island on the lake and a castle perched high on a hill overlooking the lake.
The rooms were basic. The breakfast was very good - a buffet with every imaginable item on offer.
Not a lot to do in the town but just to take a day or two out of a busy schedule and relax and take a walk and visit the castle made it really worthwhile.

This hotel has a great location and the staff were very helpful. The room had a view of the lake, castle and island (clear views in upper floors to avoid the trees) and was clean. Food was of a good standard for breakfast and dinner ( did not have lunch there - site seeing). Hired bikes at hotel for three euros to get around the lake. Go to the pool area on the top floor for a great view!

Room Tip: Top floors to avoid the trees and get a view of the whole lake

we have just returned from a tour of Slovenia and stayed six nights at Park Hotel
it was a v nice hotel in a lovely setting ,we found staff very helpful especialy the staff in the restaurant, the room was clean and a resonable size,cleaned daily
set were it is on the shore of lake Bled the views would be very hard to beat
food nice with plenty of choice
There is plenty of shops ,bars and walks close by
its was very nice after breakfast to take a stroll around the lake calling at a couple of bars on the way to refuel
we would certainly go back

Room Tip: carefull when booking lake view because of trees
