“Perfect location - brilliant hostess”
Reviewed September 11, 2010

Andrea's home was perfect. She is a brilliant hostess and made our stay very pleasurable indeed. Happy to discuss over coffee the best places to visit in Bled and the surrounding area, 5 minutes walk into town - plus, located very a near a supermarket which was very handy. The room was spacious with balcony and kitchenette which was very useful. We highly recommend Andrea's to anyone wishing to visit Bled ...but book early!!!

Tucked away in one of Bled's cozy neighbourhoods , Andrea's Home is a truly excellent alternative to the somewhat bland and characterless Hotels down by the lake.

Andrea was an excellent host! Upon arriving at Bled, she gave us the full run down of where best to visit, where best to eat etc etc. If only we'd had more time!

Its location is very good - only a few minutes walk from the lake, the main shops etc.

The room was quite tired looking, but we were fully prepared for this as Andrea did warn us. The room had everything we needed, however, and was very clean. What it lacked in modern contemporariness (having said that, there is Wifi!), it certainly made up in EXCELLENT value for money.

We'd definitely stay there again if we return to Bled.

Clean, spacious apartment close to town. Andreja is incredibly friendly and helpful - giving lots of information about Bled and the surrounding area and offering a lift to the train station. The only negative is that it was a little difficult to find - there is no sign outide the house. If you make your own way there remember to write down the address!

My partner and I stayed at Andrea's Home in Aug 2010 for 2 nights. I wish we could've had more time there! Andrea was a wonderful hostess who made us feel very welcome as soon as we arrived. She gave us maps and a crash course in all things Bled (attractions, activites, restaurants etc.) which was very helpful as we had limited time there. We had double apartment with ensuite, kitchenette and terrace. It was spacious, well equipped and very clean There is plenty of off-road parking and the use of free internet also came in handy. I would definitely recommend Andrea's Home to other travellers.

We spent a woderful week here in July! Beautiful quiet place and very hospitable hostess!
We had 2-bedrooms apartment with private terrase and equiped kitchen. Although it was hot season outside sleeping was confortable in our bedroom.
Andrea is the real enthusiast of her town. She provided us with the area/town map with the most interesting places and restaurants in the vicinity. Vintgar Gorge is the must as well as Lake Bohinj!!!
We recommend this place to all travellers!

The location is set back from lake in a beautiful residential lane, about 10 minutes comfortable stroll to lakeside. Its not signposted at the moment so if you remember its number 18 you should arrive no problem. We arrived in a thunderstorm and Andrea kindly picked up two soaked tourists only 100 metres away.

Our first stay during trip was in the main home. A good sized and clean apartment with a well equiped kitchen. Despite heat wave (30 degrees+), this room stayed cool simply by opening patio or window. There is also a free internet station which guests can use.

Like other reviewers, Andrea took time to chat about possible restaurants and activities and provided a map which showed exactly where to find her recommendations. Vintgar Gorge is a must see. When we left she also helped book the best price airport transfer in Bled. Our good experience made us return later for our last night in Slovenia.

This time we stayed in the building next door, the hostel. Quite honestly, it is the cleanest, and best quality hostel i've ever seen. The communal sitting area was stocked with a library of books and tourist brochures, a large TV and several reclining chairs. The kitchen again was fully equiped and very clean. Our only issue was the heat of the room. For 95% of the year the room would have been perfect but a heatwave caused a difficult nights sleep. An electric fan would have made all the difference.

Overall, i'd return any time and recommend to others. For the price you pay I dont think you will get equal value anywhere else in Bled.

Andrea's home is strategically located in the centre of town close to the bus station and only 5-10 mins walk to the lake. We stayed in a 2 bed apartment with private bathroom and kitchen, both well-equipped.

Andrea is such a warm person and was very prepared in introducing Bled to us. She provided a map with all the necessary details such as places to visit, eat and day trips to take from Bled. One of her recommendations, Vintgar Gorge is a definited must-see!!

There was also an internet terminal for us to use in the main reception area which was handy for us. Andrea's home is highly recommended!
