“Brilliant Value!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2011

We stumbled on Gasperin when we got off the bus with our backpacks hoping to climb triglav, and we were SO lucky to walk in and get their last available room.
It was their cheapest room, and at the same price as the backpackers hostel and the "private rooms" on offer in peoples houses, it was amazingly good value - it was a lovely ensuite room with a fantastic early-morning cooked breakfast. The owners gave us so much help with planning our hike, lending us books and maps, storing our bags while we were away and tackling our laundry.
It was the best place we stayed in Slovenia by a mile, and we can't recommend it highly enough.

Our only complaint with our stay was the weather! Sadly it rained almost the whole time we were there. However, if we ever return, we'd be happy to stay here again. The apartment we stayed in would have had pleasant views of the mountains. It's not a luxury place, but it had everything we needed, was clean and warm (which we appreciated with the rain). The owners were helpful, and they have good resources on activities including hiking. The wifi was effectively only available in the communal areas.

Our balcony room was very spacious with plenty of wardrobe and storage space. However balcony rooms do face the main road which is very busy. If you want a rest during the day, the traffic noise is quite annoying. Another family member had a non balcony room but that room was very small and had just enough space for twin beds and not much else.
The surrounding areas are very pleasant and only a short walk to Lake Bohinj which is pristine and absolutely beautiful.

Stayed June 2010, traveled with family

PeterGasperin, Manager at Pension Gasperin, responded to this review, November 1, 2010
Dear guest

In response to your review on ‘TripAdvisor’, we feel we must respond to the comments you published.

Firstly, your reservation was for the end of June, two rooms. You received a spacious balcony quad for only 2 people and a basic non-balcony, for two people. You accepted our offer of these two rooms, 6 weeks in advance of your arrival, at an already very good price and in addition you also requested (!) and accepted an additional discount.

During the time of our correspondence, offer and your arrival, you had plenty of time to explore our website (which you booked through). We have put much thought and effort into the site to ensure it is both informative and accurate for our guests, so expectations are met, if not exceeded. On our website we give clear visual and written descriptions as well as a selection of photos of our apartments, balcony and non-balcony rooms, and of our location, showing how close we are to resort center, lakeside and main road,

Within our website we also openly publish the floor plans of all our rooms (TO SCALE), whilst you did not know which room number you would be allocated, you did know, and accept, what room type you booked. The site clearly shows all the non-balcony rooms are all fairly consistent in size and configuration. Whilst the non-balcony rooms are smaller than those with balconies, every room has a twin bed, en-suite bathroom, luggage table, closet, bedside tables, TV, desk, fridge and chairs/stool, so, clearly not 'just big enough for a bed'.

Bohinj is a very popular tourist destination and June, July & August has a considerably higher influx of visitors, so some noise during the day is to be expected. Whilst we understand the views form our balcony rooms really are incredible enough that you need to leave the doors and windows open to admire such views whilst you sleep during the day. You have been biased by failing to mention that whilst there maybe day-time noise, it is not constant and noise during the evening is at a minimal, so rest and sleep are no problem.

Nobody within the family can recall any member of your party approaching us about any dissatisfaction regarding your allocated rooms, and if you had done so whilst you were in our house we may have been able to have done something. We feel very disappointed that you are using this medium, now (having waited 4 1/2 months after your visit to post your review), and without first giving us the chance to find a solution, is greatly unfair on your part.


Regards
Gašperin.

I really liked the Gasperin. Arriving in the town at night, I was so happy it was such a close walk from the bus. The owners/managers were friendly and helpful. The hotel is attractive and rooms were fine. Lots of good hot water in the shower too.

The value was pretty good as well. I highly recommend it.

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. The owners were wonderful - polite and helpful. The apartment on the third floor had a lovely view with a balcony, was spacious and clean. A full home cooked breakfast was very tasty. The pension is 200 metres from the village center. The owner recommended restaurants that had a Slovenian flavour and were very good. We highly recommend Pension Gasperin.

I was booked to go on a skiing holiday with friends to Bohinj. I had read lots of good reviews about this hotel, and decided to book. The prices are very reasonable and the owners are incredibly helpful. I contacted them a few times and they were more than happy to find out and even offered to book all that we would need for skiing for the week. Unfortunately I had to cancel, and didnt get to go, but even this was simple and hassle-free. Although I did not get to stay, judging by the other reviews from customers, this is a great hotel, and I can certainly vouch for the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff.
