My Husband and I have recently returned from another visit to Alp Penzion which was a 10 minute walk from the main centre of Bled. Bled itself may have changed a little since our last visit 15 years ago but one thing that hadn't changed was the very warm welcome and the excellent friendly and professional service from Mateja and her lovely family who are fluent in English and do all they can to ensure their guests have an enjoyable stay. The accommodation (which comprises 12 en suite rooms) was kept spotlessly clean with rooms serviced very efficiently each day while guests were having their breakfast. The rooms have tea & coffee making facilities, a small fridge, toiletries, free WiFi and the majority of the rooms have a balcony. The breakfast (which can be taken either indoors or outside) was exceptional and included cereals, yogurts, nuts, dried fruit, fresh fruit, melon, various cheeses, home grown vegetables, different types of ham, croissants, tasty breads, home made jams and some delicious cakes. There was also a cooked option of eggs whether they be scrambled with added bacon or fried, freshly cooked on request. All this comes complete with fresh juices, various different teas and coffees. There was also a toaster. Alp Penzion has a lovely peaceful garden with some sunbeds, tables, chairs, a delightful pond and a bar for drinks whereby one writes their room number in a book and pays for any drinks consumed on departure. We flew from Gatwick to Ljubljana with easyJet and onward by taxi to Lake Bled, one can also catch a bus from the airport. We had a truly wonderful week at Alp Penzion and hope to return again one day.…
We stayed at the property for a week last month - two rooms, one double one for my wife and I and a triple room for my three sons. The whole experience was just wonderful. Both rooms overlooked the lovely garden at the back of the property and enjoyed total peace and quiet as well as privacy. The level of cleanliness is top notch with rooms being cleaned punctually by 0900 when we were at breakfast. The breakfast spread included a wide variety of cheeses, cold meat cuts, bread, home made cakes and pastries, cereals, yoghurts, smoothies as well as eggs and bacon cooked to your liking. With only a 10 minute walk to the lake, it is ideally located to be away from the hustle and bustle yet close enough to retain the level of serenity that it has and enable one to walk there for dinner in the evenings. Mateja and her staff - a number of whom are family members including her mother and daughter - work tirelessly to ensure that the stay there is a very pleasant and comfortable one. And it certainly was. A stay here is very, very highly recommended as it is really a jewel in what turned out to be our first visit to one of the most beautiful countries in Europe. Five start rating without question. We will be back.…
Location, rich breakfast and room are fine. But there is an enormous BUT here. If you do care about your privacy DO NOT BOOK THIS PENSION. We stayed five nights (fixed booking). Every day we have placed the red label, "Do not disturb", outside of our door. Nevertheless the staff (authorized by the owner) came in to clean the bathroom and entered the rest of our room. Just like that. They even took away our water bottles from our desk (not in the bin!) assuming it would be waste. It was not. We just did not refill them again at that time. I went to complain about this to the owner. Her response was more than amazing. In short: "Sir, this is a private property and if a want so I am entitled to enter your room at any time to check out if all is well. I do not need your permission to do so, even if there is a red label on your door handle. I determine the definition of "disturbing" and therefore also when I enter the room." I asked her if so would respect our privacy the next day and her answer was "Maybe." We were dumbfounded. For many years we are very experienced international travelers and this is absolutely way out of line. This never happened to us before. It is a direct violation of our privacy and no excuses at all. Apparently this is how she rules the place. There is only one reason to ignore the red label: dangerous and/or life threatening situations. That, for sure, was not the case here. So the location, breakfast and room might be fine but if this is her way to deal with the privacy of her guests I would recommend not to book Alp Penzion in Bled. Not even for one night because you never know if.... After all a horrible experience.…
Warm hospitality, family run place. Relaxing place with a nice back garden. We had a family room with balcony which was super clean. Delicious daily fresh breakfast always served with a smile 😃 by Radmila. Mateja always there to help you regarding places to visit and transport. It's easy place to travel by public transport and your own car. So definitely highly recommended 👌 .
Very nice owner and other staff. The location is good, its a very short walk from the hotel to the Lake. Breakfast is also good, there is something for everybody. They have amazimg spa and saunas, so I recommend that also! Overall a very pleasant and delightful experience ❤️
Nice accomodation with kind staff. Location is fantastic, the facilities are excellent. Wonderful garden to rest. Bicycles can be rented for free. The centre is 10 minutes by walk and only few minutes by bike.
Stayed 2 nights - host woman super friendly and helpful right from the start (and throughout the stay!) Room is big enough, very comfy bed, fine shower, etc. Breakfast is very nice Hotel has some great amenities like free bikes (decent bikes!) which are really great to get around, and a self serve bar outside in a beautiful garden It’s located 5-10 min walk to the main drag, but that’s perfect because it’s very peaceful Highly recommended!
Great accommodation, very kind staff, nice located with beautiful garden, good bicycles and really advisable wellness in neighborhood Coffee could have been better - but hey, this complaining on high level
Set just 10 minute walk from Lake Bled which is idea as you are away from the commercialised noise for the lake area itself. Set in its own grounds with lounges in the garden, this beautiful bed and breakfast is idea. The breakfasts are amazing, 5 star hotel quality in my mind, something for everyone. Bedrooms are clean with a comfortable bed. No complaints what’s so ever, it was so sad to leave. Some people have been going back every year for 30 years. That says something in itself. The ladies do cook in the evening once a week perhaps, if they do you must eat there. Dinner is as amazing as breakfast.
We spent five nights at Alp Penzion and we would love to come back. The pension is very beautiful, calme, with friendly people , good rooms, free bokes (we used them a lot) and a wonderful garden. There is so much to do around lake Bled and Bohinj. Amazing nature, good swimming and nice activities. Highly recommended.
