    Great location and nice eco features.pool area nice but too cold. Breakfast adequate

    Very good 8.0
    Passive aggressive staff
    The hotel is very modern and really nice to stay in. However, the staff are comically rude. Breakfast stops at 10am, one of the mornings we arrived at 9:55am and got our food and sat beside the window looking out over the amazing view of the lake. Just after 10am while we were still eating they cleared away the buffet breakfast which is standard for hotels but they pulled down all the blinds to block the view. A very unsubtle passive aggressive way to get us to get out of the restaurant as it was now just past 10am. So we ate the rest of our breakfast in the semi dark room with an amazing view the other side while several waiters tutted. We scuttled on out of there at 10:10.

    Exceptional 10.0
    Best view+room, great location+service+facilities
    Pros: Location: (walking) 5 min to lake, 10 min to bus station Service: we got upgraded to the suite at a tiny fee View: 270-degree panoramic view of the lake including the Bled Island and Bled Castle; I believe this is the hotel/ room with the best view due to its direction and relatively high altitude (on a small ?slope), check on Google earth and you will understand; you can basically take a panorama with your phone at the balcony and it will look better than most of the photos you take at ground level Room: within top-5 of the best rooms I have stayed in; no complaints; very well designed, huge, got everything except a kitchen (who needs that when there are so many great restaurants), recently renovated, modern look and premium materials Sleep: very very good sleep with nice bed, temperature and silent surroundings Dining: breakfast included, not the best but satisfactory, dinner at pool-side restaurant was great, nice strawberry sorbet and Bled cream cake Facilities: loads including poolsssss, spas, gym, easy booking of local tours from hot air balloon trips to air-plane rides Cons: Price may be a concern but what you get is compatible with what you pay for, probably a bit more in fact The front door is a bit far away from the main road and those not renting a car need to walk some long slopes

    Exceptional 10.0
    Excellent hotel in Lake Bled
    The hotel is wonderful! We were blown away by the service oriented staff- really a pleasure! Our room was nice, the bed very comfortable and we didn't lack for anything. The location of the hotel is great as well. The breakfast looked really good - I don't eat meat or cheese and my husband was dieting but it all looked good. The dinner buffet was nothing to write home about though. I would say that was the only negative. We really liked the hotel and recommend it highly

    Decent hotel in a sterile area
    The hotel was nice and comfortable, but the service wasn't super friendly like we'd received at other boutique hotels that were much smaller. The building itself looks a bit dated, but the interior is pretty nice, although it doesn't feel cozy and charming. The rooms are clean and up-to-date, and we had a nice view of Lake Bled. Breakfast was excellent. I can't really complain about the hotel, but it just didn't have a lot of the character or warmth of some of the charming little places we stayed at in Croatia. Furthermore, the town of Bled is really not that impressive. While the lake itself is amazing, the town is a bit sterile, lacking in character, with cheap restaurants in a shopping plaza that shuts down early. I wish we had looked for a more off the beaten path place to stay.
