My husband and I went to Slovenia for our honeymoon and decided to spend 4 days in Bled. Whilst we were at Bled we stayed at Vila Istra and it couldn't have been a more perfect stay! We originally booked a standard room but because there were renovation happening at the hotel we got our room upgraded for free to the prestige suite upon our arrival! We had no idea there were going to be renovations and the staff didn't know we were on our honeymoon so it was a delightful surprise. When we entered the room; it was just 'wow'. Both my husband and I had to pick our jaws off the ground as we were so amazed by the room. The view was like something out of a dream, the room made us feel like royalty and the best part was the heated tiles in the bathroom and at -5 degrees on some days this was the best feeling!

We also decided to get breakfast at the hotel and the food was sooo good! There were cold cuts of meat and cheese, variety of cereal, fresh fruit and fruit salads, sauteed vegetables, yoghurt, fruit juices, tea and sweet pastries. If you ask, they will also make a proper barista coffee for you which was divine! Eggs were made fresh and to order!

The staff were amazing and took an interest in what we were going to do that day and were genuinely happy to have a chat with us and to get to know you. We couldn't have asked for a better stay and have been totally spoilt by this place!!!!

Just when we thought our stay couldn't get any better; we were only charged 2 breakfasts and the other 2 days were free because of the noise of the renovations. We didn't actually hear much of the renovations from our room!
Words can't even describe this kind of hospitality!! we appreciated everything during our stay and are so delighted with this place, that this has become our favourite hotel in the whole world!!

Perfect location, accommodation, place and service. Great restaurant ''Sova'' just 1 minute walk from the hotel and great choice of excursions to go and possible hobbies to do around and near the lake. For someone a litlle bit expensive, but worth every euro. :D

As they say location, location, is what it's all about and this villa has it in spades. Majestic and old world, with great helpful staff I have to say our time here, flew bye, 3 nights was brilliant. You will pay for this but it was worth the addition of suite and balcony with fabulous views

My wife and I stayed at the Villa Istra in Lake bled for two nights. There is nothing to say but, Wow. This hotel is situated lakeside with an amazing view of beautiful Laker Bled. The staff is amazing, accommodating every need, want or desire. When we checked in, we were given a dinner recommendation that was one of the best meals I have ever had. The restaurant is Sova, which is about a one minute walk from the hotel. Order the Veal cheeks, trust me. Our room at Villa Istra was huge, tastefully appointed, and very comfortable. We had a private terrace which was great for people watching, or just looking out over the lake. We highly recommend staying at Villa Istra. You will not be disappointed.

Loved the quaint hotel right on the lake. The decor is beautiful and so is the service. The staff were pretty helpful for a lot of our questions. We enjoyed our stay and was a perfect welcome to Slovenia. Walkable from the centre and a lot of food options within 10-15min.
