Alp Penzion

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2014

My family stayed at Alp Penzion in June 2014. We chose it because we liked the look of it - traditional style away from the main hustle and bustle of Bled. I was surprised how close to town (only a ten minute walk) the Alp Penzion was, as it was in quite a rural location, set away from surrounding houses/hotels. It has a great garden looking across fields and to distant mountains which was perfect for an evening drink and dining.
Mateja and her staff were very frindly and helpful - accommodating our dining request on the first evening at late notice and running us to the bus station. The rooms (we had a family room with 2 bedrooms in the loft space and a generous hallway for luggage), were clean and appropriate for our needs. We had a small balcony with views of the mountains.
Some people have commented on the beds being hard - even though they were slightly, they were still comfortable and we had great night's sleep especially as it was so nice and quiet.
The food was plentiful and tasty (we were happy to have the hotel's evening meals as we found the quality/cost of food in Bled was not so good). We especially liked and made use of the honesty bar in the garden - was great to come back after a day out and relax, taking in the atmosphere/views.
We used the bikes from the hotel to visit surrounding locations which were okay - not super well maintained but they were free! Mateja was helpful in recommending activities/sight seeing with regard to having 2 children in tow - the Adventure Park in Bled was a real hit!
I would recommend the Alp Penzion as a good practical base in Bled out of the town (which I think is a good thing as its not that attractive) within relatively easy walking distance to the Lake.

Room Tip: Rooms facing garden would have best views.

Stayed for three nights on half board basis. Food at breakfast and dinner was of high standard with a menu that varied daily. Honesty bar in the evenings offers local beer and wine at good value prices. Room spacious and vey clean. Staff were informative and extremely helpful. Easy ten minute walk to lake or borrow one of the free bikes offered by the Penzion.

We are 4 adults and 2 children traveled to Bled in July. 2 adults in one room and 2 adults with 2 kids in another apartment stayed in Alp Penzion for 3 nights. The rooms are extremely clean and comfortable, the beds are comfortable with nice linens. There are so big variety for breakfasts and everything is delicious and organic. Take the option with the dinners included, you will not find a better value for your money and most importantly the quality of food is truly home made and delicious, with a great presentation at the same time. The meals are served in a beautiful backyard, when the weather is good and they are different theme every day, the deserts are delicious also. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly, the location is just perfect, close to the lake and city center. Mateja is a very simple and friendly person at the same time a very wise and hard working woman, she is just great and we hope to see her sometime again, maybe she will visit us in NY sometime.
Best Regards from Liana, Alex, Faye and Victor

This place is brilliant. Free wi-fi. Free use of bikes. Very powerful showers. Very friendly staff. Good breakfast (loved the whole leg of cured ham and my fried eggs had smiley faces on them!). Located just outside the centre of Bled, but easy walking distance. Highly recommended.

This penzion was set in the beautiful Lake Bled area about a 10 or 15 minute walk from the lake. We liked this location better than close to the lake because we found the area around the lake to be touristy and noisy. The hospitality was excellent and the outdoor sitting areas were just beautiful. We did not get there until late afternoon and they managed to accommodate our dinner request. The food was very good. The wine and beer is on the honor system and it was very nice to sit outside and have a glass of wine or beer. We had transportation issues that had us stuck there for 7 hours after we checked out and they were very gracious to allow us to occupy their backyard until our transport came. Our rooms were adequate but the beds are hard. They have free bicycles to take down to the lake.

This hotel/B&B is s somewhat difficult to find particularly since our Garmin did not want work in Slovenia. The hotel is situated in the country side and the setting is ideal. We had a small room and they do mean small! It was adequate but somewhat cramped with two suitcases. We are traveling for a month! It is about a 15 minute walk to the lake and restaurants. They do serve meals our stay included breakfast including hot and cold selections. They were quite glad to prepare eggs sunny side up. We did not eat dinner here as it was a set menue and you needed to put your name down in advance and the days we were there did not suit our taste.
One nice feature was that you could help yourself to wine and beer in the garden and write down your room number. We found the staff very friendly and acommodative . The killer for us were the beds. They must have been the hardest we ever slept on. Our bones ached and we tossed and turned all night. Maybe we are soft but that was not an enjoyable experience! So be warned.

Room Tip: Don't pick the "small" room!

It has been said it all of the previous reviews, but this family-run Penzion is fabulous! The place is huge, the breakfast room and outdoor areas are large as well, and there is even a self-service bar outside. We enjoyed the attached spa as well since the weather was not that agreeable when we visited. We would absolutely recommend booking a Thai massage! The spa is very high end, and the massage therapists are great. Wish we would have booked a second massage! If you're visiting Lake Bled, this is the best place to stay. Grab one of their free bikes and it's only 5-10 minutes into the center of town. Perfect!
