“Beautiful place to stay at Plitvice Heaven!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Although I envy those who's planning a trip to Plitvice Lakes...I have a a great advice for you - don't look for any other place, choose Sven guesthouse! Seriously!
Perfect location, only 5 min walk to the main park entrance and great place to stay! Clean rooms, not too small and too large. Small kitchen with fridge, coffee machine, kettle and cutlery. We had a room with private balcony and the view was fantastic. We could even see some waterfalls!
There was no AC and although it was hot outside the rooms were fine.

I have to say few words about Silvana - the owner (or manager)! She was so sweet and helpful. My friend had some allergy problems and we asked if there were any pharmacy stores around. We didn't have a car and it was dark, almost 11pm. Silvana called her friend and then drove in the middle of the night to get us a medicine. We were so thankful! She saved out vacation! :)

I would highly reccomend this place to anyone going to Plitvice Lakes!

The guesthouse Sven is very nice located near to the Entrance#1 of the Plitvice Lakes Park. There is a bus station a bit after the guesthouse, if you travel in direction from Zagreb to Split. The room was very clean, tidy and well organized, eventhough it was a small one. The owners were helpful and friendly. There were fresh towels and liquid soap. There was a common kitchen corner with all the necessary dishes, cutlery, microwave, refrigerator, kettle, etc. The environment was quiet and we were able to take rest on fresh village air, listening to the sheep's and goat's bells in the neighbourhood.
There are a food shop and souvenir shop near by the National Park Entrance#1 and also a restaurant, offering drinks, snacks, sandwiches and basic dishes.
It was a nice stay and we would definitely stay there again and would recommend that guesthouse.
----
IMPORTANT: If you are travelling by bus. When you reach the bus stop on Entrance#1, it is not recommended to take the main road backwards to the guesthouse, because it is very unsafe and dangerous. It is much better to pass the entrance and to take the forest trail on the right side (starting just behind a big information board for the National Park Plitvice Lakes. It will lead you directly to the main road, just across the road sign leading to the guesthouse.

Location! Guesthouse Sven is only 300 metres from the north entrance to the national park. Walk across the road out front and follow the walking path around to the entrance of the park. The bonus is that you can leave the car at the guesthouse and avoid parking fees. The rooms are well equipped and comfortable with small neat bathrooms. There is also a communal kitchen to use. The owners were very friendly and made recommendations to us where we could get something to eat in the area. The only thing I can fault it on was that there was no air conditioning and it was hot! 37 degrees. It made it hard to sleep. But for such a good price you can’t have everything and it is not that temperature all the time!
