“Over-rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

This hotel is in the most perfect location and we had paid to upgrade to a lake-view room which was great. However the daily room servicing was cursory and most days there was no shower gel provided, surfaces were not cleaned or the floor vacuumed. The breakfast buffet was ok but as we were on a half-board basis we had to suffer the evening buffet too. It was, at best, "works canteen" and whatever time you went in you finished up queuing for food which was mostly over-cooked. I think the hotel and its management suffer from complacency.

Room Tip: If you go for a lake view room make sure it is not obstructed by the large trees which are between t...

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying at the Hotel Park and for sharing your experience.
I am pleased that you liked the location and view. As far as the cleanliness is concerned I can assure you that we pay a lot of attention to this issue; I regret if you found it not sufficient enough. I also agree with you that the shower gel should have been provided; unfortunately you haven't informed the front desk staff about it as it could be brought to your room immediately.
I gladly read your comments about the breakfast; occasionally there are many guests having dinner in the main restaurant as the hotel is very popular and therefore occupied therefore sometimes food can't be taken in a moment. Anyway, guests don't have to wait for a long time. However, thank you for your remarks about the food – I will check about the reasons with our F&B manager today.

Dear guest, I am sorry if your stay hasn't met your expectations and still hope to be able to welcome you in future.

Best regards from Lake Bled,
SAVA HOTELS BLED

Another fantastic week in the Park Hotel. Staff and hospitality excellent. Those extra little touches make such a difference. Great welcome from everyone makes our annual visit such a pleasure! We will be returning again in 2014.
My only worry is the noise from the local bar beneath the hotel, this needs addressing before it affects repeat business!

Went to bled to swim in the lake so were pleased to be able to trot out from reception, across quiet road, down steps and to lake edge. The water was clean and a beautiful turquoise colour, almost lit from underneath. Fantastic for swimming. Room was good, clean and serviced daily. Restaurant well run and food good, although we did eat dinner out twice during week for variety. Noise was a problem some nights from a bar nearby ... till very, very late .... and with no aircon was uncomfortable tempwise to have sliding door shut to balcony. On the whole a good well run hotel in a beautiful place, lovely people.

I have to agree with other reviewers who found this hotel tired and complacent. Maybe because we were part of a Croatia Slovenia tour we didn't get a lake view or air conditioning. Nor did we get any toiletries except shampoo and the thinnest sliver of soap imaginable. Everything the room was rather old fashioned and a bit sad looking. It did have a balcony though, and a safe and free wifi.

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying at the Hotel Park and for sharing your experience.

The hotel is situated at the lake shore with one half of the rooms overlooking the lake and the other half facing the park. It is unfortunately not possible to enable lake view rooms to all of our guests, especially in the main season when we are fully booked.

As far as the rooms condition is concerned, I am glad to tell you that we will very probably renovate part of the rooms by the end of this year. And we are installing new TVs next week. I believe these changes will bring much more comfort to our guests.

Besides, there is always possible to get additional room supplies at the front desk.
Dear guest, I regret that your stay hasn't entirely met your expectations. I am convinced that – due to the stated facts - your possible next stay would be more comfortable.
Best regards from Lake Bled,

We had a self drive tour after 8 days in Croatia and Bled was indeed a great spot to visit & walk the lake and enjoy the small town area and shops. This location is indeed all that others have given such good reviews as a must place to see.The hotel is right on the lake and most rooms have great views over the lake. We were here 18 & 19 June 2013 and the Hotel was spottless, weather was great sunny 24 and not a lot tourists- hotel was about 50% full. This hotel has pool on about the 5th floor and we used it freshen up before dinner. We are a retired couple mid 60's reasonably fit. Towels lockers etc are provided and being in the hotel makes it so easy. Food was great we ate one night at the hotel one night 300m away down in the cafe area. Food was also good and price and value great. Absolutely recommend this hotel as parking free beside back area but not a lots spaces so you need to be early and stay parked during your stay. Two nights is about right. Easy drive trip back to Ljubljana only an hour or so easy run the beside of the freeway mostly farming country only 55km.

Firstly - a stunning location on the edge of Lake Bled, and if you pay for a lakeside room with balcony, you won't get a better view. And the rooftop pool and spa is amazing.

Our room however, was looking really rather tired. A couple of electrical sockets were hanging off the wall, exposing the wiring. The wood on the balcony was rotten in places (would not liked to have leant on it). The air con was feeble (hardly denting the 35 degree heat). The furniture was very dated (80s) and tatty and there was far too much of it for what was a very small room. The paint was flaking in places. The plug didn't fit the bath. Wifi only worked in the corridor. etc.

The staff on the desk were _really_ rude (unlike everyone else we dealt with in Solvenia, who were all lovely). They seemed to me to look down their noses at us because we booked through Expedia, and insisted we show them some sort of voucher which Expedia was supposed to send us (the printout of the booking confirmation was not enough) before they would let us check in. Have never ever heard of such a thing before. In the end they relented.

Oh and they were hosting several football teams, who had their physio on our floor, left football boots everywhere and generally slobbed around.

Sava hotels own virtually all the hotels in Bled, and in my opinion they are complacent due to their monopoly and the stunnng surroundings of their hotels.

Barely 4 star I would say. But still worth going for the location & view I guess.

Dear guest,

May I thank you for choosing our Hotel Park for your stay in Lake Bled. Thank you also for your review.

I am very pleased to find out that you liked the hotel location as well as the thermal swimming pool and spa area.

As far as the rooms condition is concerned, yes, part of them still haven't been renovated; most probably we will refurbish them this year therefore I am convinced that our guests' stays will be much more comfortable afterwards. We are also replacing old TVs in the hotel with the new ones this week.

The fact that you booked your stay through Expedia doesn't influence on our service. We have many guests who visit us through internet booking channels and are very welcome. Printout of the booking confirmation is enough for check in but we should be informed about the booking in advance; in case this doesn't happen we need additional information about the booking. Of course this is no excuse for absence of friendliness at our front desk therefore I apologize.
We hosted one football team in July; they had some needs which we wished to fulfill. We will be more careful about not disturbing other guests because of this.

Our company manages approximately half of facilities in Lake Bled which gives us big responsibility also regarding the level of services; we are and will do our best to meet our guests' expectations and provide a memorable stay.

Hopefully we will be able to welcome you again.
Sincerely yours,

SAVA HOTELS BLED

The Hotel service was excellent, On booking with the Malta agent I was given an option for a four star Hotel instead of a three star; obviously paying an extra 56 Euros.per person. On arrival we were given a room overlooking the parking lot and without air-condition. Ironically the rest of the group who opted for a three star hotel (The Savica) had air-condition in their rooms. We were provided with a flimsy fan which didn't help match; others in our group were not that lucky. The Savica is owned by the same owners of Park Hotel Bled.

Room Tip: When booking always make it a point that what you are offered is handed down in writing!

Dear guest,

May I thank you for choosing our Hotel Park for your stay in Lake Bled.

I am glad that you liked our service as we pay a lot of attention to this issue. Unfortunately there are some un-air conditioned rooms at the hotel and when the occupancy is high we can't offer another rooms to our guests. In such cases we offer fans to our guests as we still try to provide them a comfortable stay. We will try to complete air conditioning as soon as possible.

Dear guest, I hope that we would still be able to welcome you and remain
