We stayed at Rikli Balance for 8 nights in July 2021. We were thoroughly pleased with every aspect of the stay. The room was exceptionally clean, and all had a balcony. We didn’t even have a lake view but our view was superb. We opted for the dinner and breakfast half board deal and were very glad we did. I don’t know how other people can say the food is boring. Every night it was new and delicious. It’s also clearly not a rotating menu as we were there for 8 nights. Breakfast was kind of standard for a nice hotel with various types of eggs, a fresh omelette station, fresh waffles, fruit, salad and various breads and mini croissants. Dinner was much better - every night they had different types of red meat, poultry and fish as well as different kinds of potatoes and pasta. They also had fresh salad bar and cooked vegetables as well as a variety of fresh fruit and mini cakes every night. Every night I think one could find something that they liked. With regards to Covid the hotel was extremely clean. They had plastic gloves and hand sanitizer at the restaurant and most people used them. While guests were encouraged to wear masks there were quite a few who did not which was a little disappointing. But those are guests not the staff - all staff wore masks. The staff were fantastic - super friendly and super nice at all stage of our stay. They were also super quick to rectify anything (we didn’t get robes in our room initially and as soon as we queried it - robes were delivered by the time we returned!) The pool area was also fantastic and we spent several hours every day there, lots of space and loungers to relax with a book if you want - both indoors and outdoors. The location was also very central and super quick to get to/from the lake and the “centre” of Bled. Small supermarket also less than 5 min walk away to get affordable drinks or snacks. There didn’t seem to be loads of restaurants that we would have wanted to try - another reason we were very happy to have opted for the included dinner. Parking was included for us as we had a “longer” stay - but we don’t know what qualifies as “longer”. In terms of areas for improvement I would say the following: - the WiFi in the rooms is weak but not impossible. But it doesn’t reach out to the balcony - the drinks at the restaurant at dinner were extortionate! €3.80 for 0.25L Coke Zero. - the pillows could be firmer - but this is a problem with poor pillows across Europe and not unique to this hotel - the AC didn’t quite get cold enough in the room (again is a European thing where the thermostat won’t go lower than 19C) Overall though we loved it and would definitely recommend and would return in the future.…
Bled is a beautiful region of Slovenia, we were so amazed, we needed to stay somewhere around the lake. So we found this chic and very stylish hotel, which is located to have the perfect view around. The room was big, clean and comfy. The best breakfest we have eaten in months. The receptionist is a really helpful and friendly guy, who gave us tips for our journey. We will come back as soon as possible. Thank you.
We came there only for dinner als walk in guests. We had an excellent evening in the buffet restaurant. We had a big choice at the buffet and a friendly excellent service. The price was good for that what was offered. After our wonderful dinner we stayed at the lobby bar for some drinks. We didn't sleep in the hotel.
My wife and I went to Bled to spend some romantic time together and enjoy beautiful nature. We stayed at Rikli Balance Hotel which was a good choice. Hotel is nice with friendly staff, good and diverse food for breakfast and dinner and rooms are clean. In the hotel there is also wellness (indoor pool, sauna and massage center). The room is nice but could be better equipped for example, no bottle of water was provided, only one thrash can in the bathroom, no mini bar, the safe box not working, etc. However, this are just minor staff and does not have impact on the overall good experience.
This hotel is renovated with excellent taste with great emphasis on local area. Well done. Location superb, view as well, especially from suite rooms. Reception staff profesional and excellent. Food is fresh but just not prepared, cooked right. Upgrades neded urgently because it seems like cheap mensula or something like that. KITCHEN abd hb option- wouldn't recomand it to guests who are used on higher standard. Rooms do not have heating system..late in September it is a big problem especially because suite deluxe rooms are kind of big and very, very cold...so how will u find a Balance at Rikli Balance if rooms are soo cold, nudo is not option here for sure😂
