We spent here only one night and we were really warmly welcomed. The room was clean and with a nice view on the river and the bridge. The breakfast was nice and the service was delightful. It is a very good place to visit the town.

We were welcomed with a little lunchtime glass of the local "schnapps" and the wifi code which always impresses our teenage sons. A very old family run six room hotel right on the river. It has an excellent little courtyard which is secure and therefore bikes are safe - the owner even offers a washing service so by the time... More

We stayed here for 2 nights, we loved our large room overlooking the river, the 600 year old bridge and the view of the lovely castle. Igor the owner was so welcoming, friendly and helpful to us. The breakfast was fantastic, always so fresh and plentiful. He gave us typical home made Slovenian cake to take with us when we... More

It was such a shame I was only staying one night due to other commitments in Slovenia. Igor welcomed me at the airport and immediately made me feel at home. My room was lovely with a great view of the river. The breakfast was a delight with a few local delicacies thrown in. The day I checked out, it was... More

I was tired and a little frazzled as my finger approached the doorbell outside Hotel Garni. Before I could press, the door was opened by a very friendly guy with a big warm smile. It was the incomparable Mr Igor Sustar. Before I could blurt out our concerns about parking and luggage left in car, he had us seated, drinking... More

What a wonderful and inviting welcome we experienced when we were greeted by our warm and friendly hotel owner, Igor! He made us feel right at home after a long and weary day...his "Slovenian Red Bull" honey liquor was graciously offered to us and recharged our batteries. Arriving late on a Sunday afternoon, we asked if there were any nearby... More

I stayed at the Garni Palata on 8 September. I wish I could have stayed longer, but I was on a tour. The proprietor, Igor, could not have done more for us. He greeted us with a glass of honey liquer then showed us to our room. This had a dramatic view over one of the rivers that runs through... More

Our stay of 4 nights in the Hotel Garni Paleta and the generosity of Igor are memorable for all the family! The room and the beds were very comfortable for the five of us. The breakfast was extraordinary. Igor was very helpful and he tailored his recommendations to our family. We enjoyed the village including swimming in the river. The... More

Igor clearly takes pride in his extended home, as well he should. I'm not surprised to see that it has a 5-star rating, though I headed to Hotel Garni through a strong recommendation (actually, I think it was a mandate!), not through Trip Advisor. I was welcomed with a delicious alcoholic "energy drink" at 11 pm, and the breakfast was... More

this is a delightful place to stay, a little off the beaten path so it is quiet and peaceful. I watched a duck float around in the river from my window. The breakfast was perfect. I was traveling with a group from the United States and Hotel Garni met our needs perfectly. you should visit. The host is most accomodating.
