The hotel is relatively new and looks very nice, although it is a bit sterile & cold.The hotel is in close proximity to the beautiful lake of Bled and it has easy access to the town.
There is a nice outside terrace, a good size restaurant and also some meeting rooms. One issue is that the WLAN is not working properly in the meeting room, not even in the lobby in front of the meeting space. The closer you get to the reception the better it is. WLAN in the rooms is depending on how close you are to the hotspot. In some rooms it is fine, in others it's rather fragile.
The hotel has a very small gym that is part of much larger spa area. The gym has 4 cardio machines and some weights. However, it only opens at 1pm!! We had to ask the staff to open the fitness room at 7.30am to allow a morning work-out. And then they charge you EUR 5 to use the gym? Huh??
Rooms are nice and spacious, however the decoration is also a bit "cool". Highlight is the bathroom. There is only a tub, so if you want to shower, you have to stand up in the tub. But there is NO curtain. That means that each time somebody takes a shower, the whole bathroom (including the toilet see) gets wet and is flooded. I don't get that. After all the money you spend on building a hotel, why forget to put in a shower curtain or a glass door?
The food is ok (we had breakfast and lunch buffet). Nothing special but it looks and tastes good.
In summary: a nice hotel if you need to spend a few days in Bled.
