This hotel is the best hotel in the area without a doubt. It's not 5 star by any worldly standard but it's 5 star for the area. We ate on the hotel restaurant both nights and the food was very good. Mushroom risotto was outstanding. Relaxed outdoor eating. Friendly family run business

I only regret that we couldn't stay longer. This is a lovely property. We arrived towards evening after driving from Split. We were put in two rooms in what they called "the house". They always seem to act like it was something different from the hotel. I thought it was fantastic. We had two lovely large rooms that had balconies... More

We stayed at the Degenija when we were visiting the nearby Plitvice National Park and found it to be a very nice hotel, well run and very friendly - definitely recommend it to anyone needing to stay in this area. There is a restaurant in the hotel and a separate one adjacent, which we used. This was also very friendly... More

In the moment of the Check-In they gave us a bigger room instead of our reservation for free. We loved the hotel and the restaurant, the " veal under the iron bell" was delicious !! Very close to Plitvice Lakes entrance 1, maybe 4/5 km.

Pleasant hotel near Plitvice Lakes National Park. The room was pleasant, with a small balcony, the staff were pleasant. The room was clean. We had dinner in the bistro, which was quite nice. The location close to Plitvice is excellent.

I am not really sure why this hotel has such good reviews. It was fine: clean and comfortable and service was OK. There is not much choice in this area and it was the best option. The breakfast was OK but not great, although they did cook the eggs to order. The room was well equipped but reminded me a... More

Built four years ago, the Degenija, named for a flowering shrub endemic to the area, is a wonderful place to relax before or after a trip to Plitvice National Park. This small hotel with good sized rooms (and beautiful bathrooms) is comfortable and the staff is excellent. Breakfast is a substantial buffet with freshly prepared food. The dinner menu includes...
