Hotel Bohinj
Reviewed September 2, 2010

Hotel Bohinj is a medium sized modern hotel built next to the old royal hunting lodge just a few minutes from the shores of Lake Bohinj. Rooms are clean and large and the suites (all with balcony) are superb and, with a king size bed and living room with sofa bed, can accommodate up to four comfortably - ideal for a group of sharers or a family. Breakfast is a hot and cold buffet, is plentiful and of good quality. I noted the comments about dinner but, as there are so many good restaurants and eateries in the area, my advice is to take Bed and Breakfast only. Gostilna Rupa in nearby Sredna Vas (5km) is to be recommended, and there are a number of options in Stara Fuzina, a short walk from the lake.

Well I must say that I have travelled a lot, but I always like to come back to this nice hotel. The rooms are fab! Big and spacey and very very clean. I have also been to the neighbouring hotel Jezero, which has no soul and the stuff is not very friendly. In hotel Bohinj you get much better room than in hotel Jezero for much better price!

The Hotel Bohinj enjoys a superb location just minutes from the lake. We had opted for an apartment with balcony which was very spacious and on arrival was spotlessly clean. The daily cleaning was a bit hit and miss though. Beds were large and comfortable with plenty of extra pillows. We originally had a ground floor room overlooking the disused swimming pool (not as bad as it sounds) facing the lake, but due to problems they are experiencing in Ribcez Laz, that side of the hotel was right in line for the unpleasant smell drifting down river from the sewage treatment plant. Aparently the smell is only there when there is a change in the weather, but we could smell it most days, usually in the evening. We asked to be moved to the other side of the hotel, which fortunately we were able to do and had a 2nd floor apartment with views across to the mountains. This side of the hotel is a little noisier, but as the church bells ring at 7am every morning , it wasn't too much of an inconvenience.
The worst thing about this hotel has to be the dining - not only is the dining room soulless and depressing, but the food was worse than dreadful. It isn't cooked at the hotel but is brought in by van each evening. We were half board but on 3 occassions couldn't face the dismal, windowless box and the 1970's style school meals they were serving.
Now we've seen the surrounding area we would love to go back but would probably choose to stay at the Hotel Jezero just across the road.
It's a real shame as the Bohinj could be so much better with just a little effort.

Having been to Slovenia several times, we we deeply disappointed with the food in this hotel. I have fairly low expectations of food, as long as it's warm, I'm happy. However on the first two nights we had cold, burnt and dried-up food, and undercooked chicken (we'd booked halfboard). The staff seem to be embarrassed by it all. This is a shame, as Slovenian food is good, simple and hearty. Again, I emphasis that I am really not fussy about food, but this was terrible. The lack of windows in the small, depressing dining-area was also a turn-off. We ate out therafter. Do stay here, but B&B only. A general tip for half-board slovenian hotels: do some research into the catering, is there a public restaurant? If so, the food will probably be okay. If not, approach with caution. Otherwise, go B&B, there are plenty of cheap places to eat.

We have spent 8 days in the Hotel Bohinj as part of our winter holidays.
We had excellent experince with everything. The hotel was very nice, and most importantly very warm because the temperatures outside were minus 15. The food is excellent! The staff is very helpful and friendly. They can check for you the weather forcast and the conditions in the nearby skiing resorts so the overall mark is excellent for everything. I stronlgly recommend it for skiiers and families that want to have peaceful holidays.

Very nice place. Located close to the lake, cafes and supermarket, yet a bit away from the road and noise. Room was spacious and clean, furniture looked new. Very nice balcony. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpfull. Also I liked that there were two tennis courts at the back. Food was good and lots of choice, though I'm not picky about it. As for the Bohinj Lake in general, it is a beautiful place. Very picturesque and less commercialised than neighbouring lake Bled. Although if you are looking for some nightlife, Bled would be better place to stay.
