We stayed here as it seemed like a good affordable option (we booked quite late, so were quite limited) we had read other reviews that said guests had use of the kitchen. This is why we booked here instead of a b&b. However, when we arrived, we found this wasn't the case. Guests can only use the kitchen if they...

Boasting slightly dated but charming and characterful decor, Vila Gorenka is a reasonably priced hostel/hotel located only a few minutes from Lake Bled's main hub. It's a great jumping off point for exploring Lake Bled and the surrounding Alps further afoot. Accommodation is clean and spacious and though it appeared to be fully booked, there was rarely a queue for...

We stayed here for 2 nights in August. It is a small guest house, 5 rooms on each level. If you're OK with shared bathroom and toilets, 1 of each on each level and very clean this is a great little place with loads of character. Host Janusz has a very dry sense of humour. Rooms 5 and 10 have...

We requested a room with a view and were given probably the best room in the whole place, massive balcony, big room, incredible view! Everything else in the hostel was average, it felt like a big old haunted house that hadn't been redecorated since 1950. It had a lot of character, creaky floorboards etc. the bathroom to bedroom ratio was...

I made a last minute change to itinerary and Janez was kind to accomodate the change with no extra charge. The location is quite good, with bus station about 10 minute walk and the lake Bled sub 5 minute walk away. The rooms have an old appearance and the bathrooms/toilets were shared. But given the location and price, it was...

Having made a last-minute decision to visit Bled, I was looking for somewhere that was cheap, but still a nice place to stay. Vila Gorenka is simple, but it has everything you need, so long as you are happy to share a bathroom with everyone else on your floor. I was placed in a double room with an eclectic mix...

Lake Bled was a beautiful place and our stay was only made better by staying here's. The man who ran it was very friendly and helpful with all of our questions. Rooms were comfy and we got WiFi everywhere in the house. Had lots of info on neighboring things to do and the kitchen was clean. He had breakfast available...

Yes, Janez is very nice and this is why I rated Vila Gorenka so high for service. However, picture this: you have gone back to Mom and Dad's for a holiday as have your 6 siblings, their spouses, and kids. You are all saying on the same hallway, and you have 1 bathroom to share complete with limited hot water....

We got a shuttle bus from the airport to Bled, which dropped us right outside Villa Gorenka. When we pulled up I thought we were dropping someone else off; I said to my boyfriend 'we won't be staying somewhere this nice'. The owner speaks great English- - though he didn't speak much when we first arrived. He has some great...

We stayed here for one night which is not enough because you'll love Bled so much. Quirky old house with lots of charm and feels like lots of history. Floors squeak when you walk, Owner welcoming and helpful with questions we asked. Location was such that we walked to most things we wanted to do with no problems. Close to...
