Hotel Hvala-Restaurant Topli Val,Kobarid

Reviewed October 2, 2011

The rooms are amazingly good for a slightly off the beaten track location. Service friendly, polite and very thorough. Food really good, but beware "fresh from the sea" means exactly that - not cooked.

A basic hotel, but staffed by very friendly and helpful staff - and next to a wonderful restaurant. Highly recommended!

Rick Steves recommended so you know it is good. Elevator, so no stairs. Nice.

Kobarid is a nice little town. We stayed there after going thru the scenic Vsric pass. Great views of the valley, Soca river, and hand gliders, from the monument of Italian soldiers. A must see.

Dinner at the hotel was good. So was breakfast. Would recommend. Oh and free parking.

The Hotel Hvala has always been wonderfully welcoming and has always had good food, but that has improved even further recently. It is family-run and that shows in the very friendly welcome. For walkers and fishermen, the location is superb and the countryside is some of the most wonderful in Central Europe. The river Soca has great fishing and the hotel can arrange licences and guides. If you want, bikes can also be hired. The rooms are neat and tidy, but lack air conditioning and selectively need some redecoration, but this is a minor point and the owner told me that refurbishment was imminent. The really important thing is that the staff will go out of their way to be helpful at all times. I have read some critical reviews, but the reviews are either wrong or out of date because they do not accord with my very favourable impressions. I have stayed there several times over the years and would not have gone back if I hadn't thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The Hvala is noted as an exceptional hotel and restaurant in many guides. This is not an exaggeration. The hotel food, particularl;y the seafood, is of the highest quality with superb presentation and attention to detail. Nice local wines. Relaxed environment with top line service. The host was accomplished and highly knowlegable in his recommendations. Take his advice--it will be rewarded. Rooms are small, modern, clean. Kobarid is a wonderful small village located in the scenic Soca River Valley with mountain backdrop. Great focal point for sightseeing, fishing, hiking, gliding.
