unfortunately I have to point out the great disappointment in the Balnea hotel restaurant. After a short Sunday visit to Dolenjske toplice (we were not accommodated in a hotel, we were external visitors, so we can only write a review of the restaurant), the atmosphere and friendliness of the restaurant staff invited us to a Sunday lunch at the restaurant of the Balnea Hotel. Everything was fine until the food came to the table. Oh what a disappointment, generic food to cry on. We ordered a Sunday lunch with Viennese steak and baked potatoes with some toppings on the menu. I can briefly describe our disappointment that the food was all wet to taste and inconspicuously prepared to look at. The meat was tough and the frying brown. Because we were hungry we ate the food. The next disappointment was the price. Food that was worse than the cheap menu in the student canteen was at least twice overpriced. I will not write specifically about the price and I will conclude that this is a restaurant with food for survival and nothing more than that. My advice - do stay away.…
Calm and relaxing atmosphere, facilities are very clean. We loved the small pools and water temperature in the old part of the spa. Food was nice too, the tables are very close to each other though. Parking situation could be improved too, there are not enough parking spaces in the close proximity of the hotel, but there is plenty of space 5 min walk away. This was a bit annoying because I was told I cannot park in front of the hotel and I need to repark, but some other cars stayed parked there for the whole weekend. All in all it was a very pleasant weekend.
Solid 4 star hotel with friendly and helpful staff. Room is large, materials used are solid and maintenance is good. Dining is situated in an annex to old hotel Kristal and it is a bit awkward to go out of the building (even if it is just a few meters) for breakfast. Variety of food is quite good. Parking is free however it is hard to get free spot when the hotel is full.
After a while and righ after corona pandemy here we are again. The hotel is still perfect. Very friendly and professional service, clean and comfortable rooms, splendid food. All the measures against virus spreading are taken, but they are not disturbing. Like other guests we have felt very safe. Highly recomended.
We visited with two small children for the weekend. Great experience. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable rooms. Just what we needed for a relaxed weekend. Dinner was self service and mostly very good. Recommend it!
One of the best SPA hotels in my experience. Big room, perfect breakfast, friendly service, free convenient parking. Pity, that the SPA is outdated, with small choice of options, few special services - they tried their best. but still...
Nice and clean room, wonderful spa, very kind stuff, delicious food and also nice nature around the hotel. They have also good entertaining programme, and always something new - like gong therapy, Tibetan sounds, etc. Highly recommended!
We came only on a weekend , and I must say it was a very,very relaxed weekend. We tryed everything, inside hotel hot pool, big pool with outside extension, all the saunas.. We were most time in saunas, and must say that Finnish sauna on the roof top is awesome, Japonese pool with 40*C ,and after that cold shower from wooden bucket,uuuuuuuuuuu. Took massage.....very good, try it.. In restaurant You can find lot of domestic products/food. Wery tasty. We had a fresh(young) vine called Ranina-very smooth.... Staff is very polite and problemsolving.. All together, wery nice and we will be back..
A great stay. A bit short but great for a time off and re- charging your “batteries”. Room vas superior with a nice size balcony and a fire place (not needed in summer, but might be nice in winter). Food is locally sourced and excellent with special corner for children.
Dolenjske Toplice is a small town only an hour's drive from Ljubljana. The Balnea Hotel is an excellent 4 * hotel located on the Zdraviliski trg. Check in is very fast. The reception is very fast, the staff member is incredibly friendly and explains all the activities to you. The room is divine. Very spacious, clean with a large balcony and a bathroom with a jacuzzi bath. The wifi connection works great. The room has a mini bar, safe, TV. Each guest is also provided with a bathrobe, slippers and a handbag with bath towels, which staff members change daily. The dining room is located in a neighboring hotel, which is connected to the Hotel Balnea. The food is exceptional, varied, the staff is diligent and helpful. We had half board, so we enjoyed breakfast and dinner. The Wellness an Spa is about 200m walking distance from the hotel. An indoor pool and a large outdoor pool are available, as well as a children's playground and a large slide. Inside there is also a spacious sauna with a fairly large FKK terrace. We were more than satisfied with the complete service of the Hotel Balnea and we will definitely be back.…
