Although very expensive, our room did have a fantastic view of the lake. The room itself was welcoming and had nice wood panelling, with a very comfy bed. Only criticisms were lack of toiletry options e.g. little shampoo / body lotion, which most high-class hotels offer, and the bed-side table was a bit dusty. The breakfast was very satisfactory and had a full range of cold and hot options, including at least one hot dish that was different on each day. The Bled cheese was a nice unique feature to other hotels. Only criticism was lack of freshly sliced fruit (there was some but it appeared only infrequently). Wellness centre was nice, also with lake views, but smaller upper pools could have been a touch warmer to feel really comfy. Don't miss the bare-foot 'healing' walk directly opposite the hotel - we only found it on our last evening but it's fun and certainly challenges your feet!

Dear Zol555, thank you for taking the time to write us such a great feedback on TripAdvisor and for the opportunity to serve you here at Rikli Balance Hotel in Bled. We are happy to learn that you love newly renovated hotel with magical views & comfortable rooms, which are all individually decorated, with sustainability in focus. Our rooms are themed around local traditions, complete with warm wooden furnishings, natural materials and soft colors. Throughout this renovation our focus was on sustainability and environmental protection. We at Sava Hoteli Bled are dedicated to your health and well-being, keeping environmental impact in mind. Plastic waste like garbage bags and aperitif-bar straws, the miniature bottles of toiletries and cosmetics from guest bathrooms present huge burden to our waste management and consequently to our habitat. Therefore at Rikli Balance Hotel all tiny single-use plastic bottles are being replaced by wall-mounted, refillable dispensers. I am also glad to state that there was universally positive feedback from our guests. With this in mind we make sure that if a guest really wants to have their own amenity bottles they could get them, they are still available on request at the front office desk. It is a great pleasure to read that you have enjoyed our Bled cheese selection in the restaurant and we are grateful for all other constructive remarks you have given us. And finally thank you for mentioning our Rikli Relaxation Park and barefoot path in front of our hotel. Did you know that the beginnings of intensive tourism date from 1855 when the Swiss doctor Arnold Rikli was among the first to recognize the value and advantages of Bled’s climate and location. He founded a Natural Health Institute and introduced his own healing methods based on the effects of light, air and water on the human body. His healing methods are still relevant today. It is our pleasure to know that you bring this wonderful Rikli memory back home and we look forward to serving you again in the future! Yours in service, Tomaž Jastrobnik Guest Experience Manager Rikli Balance Hotel Sava Hoteli Bled

We stayed one night at this hotel at the end of a cycling tour. It's bland and functional exterior is no indication of the stylish and well-designed interior. Our good-sized room was beautifully furnished, thoughtfully designed, very comfortable and with a balcony that over looked the lake. Hotel is close to everything in the main town. Staff were excellent and responsive. When we said we had to catch an early morning bus we were offered a breakfast/lunch pack - 11 out of 10 for this Rikli as it was much appreciated. We did not use the dining room or any other facilities so cannot comment on these.

Great place to stay in Bled! We had a very nice, very big room with a huge terrace overlooking the lake, superb!!! The hotel is only 200 minutes walk from the shore, yet in a very quiet pocket. Looks like it has been renovated quite recently, good brekky (cooked to order omelette, etc.) and very clean and nice rooms
