The Garni Hotel Jadran is a beautiful building with a dated charm, from the climbers that cover the front to the slightly retro decor in the rooms. The views from the balcony are spectacular and the hotel is very well positioned- just a couple of minutes walk from the centre of Bled.
The fact that guests dine in another hotel means the Garni Hotel Jadran is very much used as a base- and guests come and go without seeing each which can make it feel a little eerie. The slightly pokey rooms have only the most basic facilities- which is a shame as if they were better equipped (and with such beautiful balconies) I would have felt able to spend more time at the hotel.
I found the arrangements for meals a little bit confusing and when I was told to go 'across the road' for my meals I first headed to the Grand Toplice Hotel before being ushered out to the slightly less-grand (but conjoined) Panorama Restaurant- where again nothing seemed very clear and I had to fathom the breakfast 'system' for myself as there's a confusing mix of hotel guests and paying public.
Having said that the hotel staff were friendly enough, while those at the Panorama Restaurant seemed a bit rushed- and as others have said- it's wise to get their earlier if you want the full breakfast or dinner range.
All in all, despite my minor grumbles the Garni Hotel Jadran offers good value for money and certainly deserves a better rating. The views and location compensate for the slightly confusing dining set-up and I'd gladly return.
