“Nice but not 4 star”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2014

I stayed 3 nights in April 14. The hotel is in a very quiet location on the outskirts of Ribno village a 30 minute brisk walk from Lake Bled.
My bedroom was spotlessly clean but the furniture and fittings were definitely tired and there is only so far cleanliness will go.
The room was large and the bed comfortable with lovely fresh. crisp linen, I slept very well. The room opened onto a large shared balcony overlooking the terrace and woodland however the doors were ill fitting and tough to open (and shut!).
The bathroom tiles were dated tho' clean. The shower (over the bath) lacked power.
Food was good quality tho' for vegetarians uninspiring. Breakfast buffet kept running out tho' replenished - eventually - when asked.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet due to the quiet location of the hotel - but they are all tired tho' clean

Very bad. If you want to return to the 80's that's the place for you. Everything is from that time,very old and poor. No way that this hotel is 4 star. No bathrobe or flip flops in room,no body lotion..When we came in the room we were welcomed by dark in hall,blown bulb and fridge wasn't working. So maid didn't check room before obviously. We said at the reception about these problems. Bulb was replaced but fridge was in the same condition when we returned that evening. Again I said to the reception but the other day also nobody came and fix it so we were without fridge and mini bar. 4 star?! No excuses or offer to change room or make things better on some other way. We paid full price. Food is very bad and with minimum options. They don't replace food so be there at the beginning so you can see full offer. They had the same pastries for dinner from the night before.

Sauna area is very small and inside finnish sauna could really been cleaner. Positive is that sauna works untill midnight so you can relax there after dinner.
Another postitve thing is very comfortable bed.
And this is it. Never ever again!! Very disappointed!!

I stayed here two nights with my wife and friends. This hotel is located in quiet place surrounded by woods and beautiful nature. The stuff at the hotel are welcoming and friendly.
They do their best to make your stay pleasant. The food was very good with a great choice and with excellent desserts.
We loved this hotel and would be more than happy to go back there again.

In a very good location - a quiet spot. Staff are very polite and helpful.
But very old rooms/furniture and we got a dirty bathroom.
Breakfast and dinner are buffet, with an average choices of food which runs out quickly.

Stayed at Hotel Ribno for 3 days in early August. We had read one or two critical reviews and were not expecting a very pleasant stay. How surprised we were! The reception staff were charming and helpful, the restaurant staff were helpful and attentive. The food in the restaurant was nicely prepared and well presented plus there was always a good choice with something to suit all tastes. We took advantage of the evening buffet and can honestly say if we had paid twice the price we would have been very pleased. The rooms were a little dated but they were clean, bright and lacked nothing except perhaps an air conditioning unit for the hotter part of the day. I did notice that some rooms on the south side of the hotel had air conditioning so perhaps the hotel will be fitting out more rooms in future. Hotel Ribno is only 40 minutes walk from Bled so it’s okay if you arrive without a car. However, take time to head downhill to the river, it’s a very pleasant 15 minute walk and a great place for a swim. If I am ever lucky enough to get chance to return to Slovenia hotel Ribno will be at the top of my wish list.

We arrived at Lake with no where to stay, tried several hotels some had vacancies but were quite expensive and had no air conditioning which was a must as it was very warm. We saw a sign for this hotel and decided to give it a try. It was out of Bled but we had a car so it wasn't a problem. It's situated on the edge of a lovely pine forest, it has great areas for kids as well as a volley ball and tenns courts. Our room had a balcony with lovely views, it wasnt anything fancy but it was clean and comfortable, it also ad air conditioning. We were offered an option for a Meal package for an extra 9€ each one of the best buffett breakfasts and dinners that we have ever had in Europe. We stayed 2 nights and found the staff very polite and helpful, it was nice to come back each night away from the crowds at Lake Bled and relax on the terrace before dinner. It also has a day spa if you want to relax a little more. Great spot for couples and families.
