We stayed at this beautiful hotel for one night as a stop off after seeing plitvice lakes. The staff were wonderful, the room was very modern and clean. Was a perfect stay for us. The restaurant was beautiful and the food was delicious! Loved it and recommend to anyone.

We stayed at this hotel last yr., did not even have a booking, we just stopped by, since we did not like a place we booked in advance. We were lucky to find an empty room in June. It was a pleasure staying here. The food at the restaurant was delicious. When I visit Croatia again I will stay here again. Cista desetka od hotela! Ana Mihalic, Willoughby Hills, Ohio USA

We recently stayed 2 nights at Hotel Degenija while visiting the Plitvice Lakes region in Croatia. The hotel was very clean, up to date, comfortable, and had great staff. The food in the restaurant was great and the staff overall tried to do everything possible to make our stay comfortable. We would recommend this hotel to couples, families, or anyone else.

Room Tip: I really don't think this hotel has any bad rooms.

This hotel is convenient to the park entry. It provides a basic level of comfort within the rooms, with a very soft bed, a TV and small desk. Our bathroom flooded every time the shower was used. The air conditioning didn't work. The bar area is a great spot to relax with friendly staff. The attached restaurant is run separate from the hotel and provides basic tasty food. You have to pay cash as it does not allow you to charge back to the hotel. The staff were rude when we arrived before the 2pm check in, despite the place being deserted with no offer to store luggage or help with directions to the park.

This was a great B&B for our 2 day stay in the Plitvice Lakes region. The rooms are basic but spacious, clean and quiet. The hotel is located only 4km or so down the road from the park entrance and the restaurant on site is know as the best in town (there isn't much). Most of all, the staff were so friendly and nice. Mario, at the front, is a big Nuggets fan and our traveling companions, from Denver, are as well. They spent hours talking basketball. Suzanne, also was extremely friendly and always had a smile on her face.

Room Tip: This is a quiet area so all the rooms are good.

We stayed here for 3 nights, the room was so spacious and clean with a lovely view. The staff were excellent and very friendly. Breakfast was ok, the hot food was not great but you can order omelettes, ham and eggs fresh. The bar was lovely and they do an amazing smoothie. Only a few minutes drive from the lakes.

Stayed here for 2 nights as part of a weeks holiday so we could visit the famous Plitvice Lakes.
Beautifully decorated modern building with all mod cons. We stayed in a room with a small patio area with a view of the green hills in the distance. The perfect spot to relax before dinner at the fabulous adjoining Restoran Degenija with a cold beer from the bar. The only noises we could hear was the chirping of the crickets in the warm evening sun.
The room has a huge comfortable bed, welcome air-conditioning, well-appointed and scrupulously clean en-suite bathroom and a large satellite TV. There was a small fridge with a mini-bar though we filled it with wine and beer from a nearby shop. Shame there wasn't a coffee machine or kettle but the breakfast available dispelled the real need for one. Cooked bacon, eggs, sausages and fresh croissants and pastries along with cereals and fresh fruit (melon to die for!) yogurts,washed down with fresh juices and lovely coffee. And you can choose to sit inside or on the cool verandah style outside seated area.
Thd staff deserve mention for their politeness and helpfulness. We even had a specially made packed lunch made for us for our trip to the lakes and the dockers of Liverpool wouldn't have been disappointed with these "butties"!
The adjoining restaurant is fabulous also (I can recommend the slow cooked veal and potatoes "under the bell" and the spit roasted lamb and exquisite cakes if you have room!) but ensure you book a table in advance otherwise you may be disappointed.
Really wish we could have stayed a couple of more days here all told!!

Room Tip: Try to get a room with a patio and book the restaurant in advance!
