A room with a view Oct 22, 2012
We booked the room at the hotel online which gave a ten percent discount - probably due to the time of the year. The hotel is a bit away from the bus stop in Bled - but fortunately Bled is a fairly small town so it doesn’t take too long to walk from the bus stop to the hotel.

When we get to the hotel check in is pretty fast - apparently the room we had booked didn’t have a lake view since it was cheap. But the hotel only had a few guest so we got a room facing the lake on the fourth floor. From up there the view of the Lake Bled was great and we could see the castle on the top of the hill on the other side of the lake.

The room itself can’t really live up to the view of the lake - it looks a bit tired and dated - I doubt they have had a huge budget for renovation the last couple of decades at this hotel. At least the room got all the basics - though all being old models. The television is small and almost prehistoric, and there is a small desk as well. The bathroom is in good working order with both hot and cold water so it is adequate.

Anyway the view is by far the best and there is no other building anywhere near so during the night we could leave the blinds open and enjoy the view of the castle with the lights during the night. If it had been a bit warmer it would have been nice to sit outside on the balcony enjoying the view - but at night times it got pretty cold here.

We decide to stay an extra night at the hotel - so we went down and asked the receptionist if we could book for the same price. She said no they were fully booked. So instead we went up to the room and had a look at the options in Bled - and what do you know - we could book the same hotel for the next day including a ten percent discount. The next morning we went down for breakfast - there was a decent breakfast at the hotel with a little bit of everything so it was a good start of the morning. We asked if we could stay in the same room or not - and at first the new receptionist said no - but after a bit she managed to move around a Chinese tour groups room so we didn’t have to move - which was quite convenient.

A very good value deal with the hotel is a dinner option. You can get a three course dinner for 10€ at a restaurant on the other side of the street facing the lake. The restaurant is very big but in October it is pretty much empty so it looked a bit too big. I guess during the summer it would be full of guest and possibly feel a bit too crowded.

Really great pictures. As they say, the most important thing about a place is location. And this is one LOCATION! Well done on the feature.

Magnificent view over the lake and castle Nov 08, 2012
The Garni Hotel Jadran location is 10 minutes walk from bus station in Bled and with direct castle and mountain view. This hotel is part/sister hotel of Grand Hotel Toplice (Sava Hotel), and you can use facility such as swimming pool and sauna in the other sister hotel free of charge.

When we arrived early in Bled, the room was not ready and the reception upgrades our room to the fourth floor with direct castle and mountain view and balcony outside the room.

The room itself is really basic, old, tired looking, and not really 3 stars hotel, with very small and old television and small desk. However the view from the room is amazing. I can spend hours just sitting in the balcony reading book with this magnificent view over the lake, castle and mountain.

The bed is not comfortable as I felt prick of tiny needles every time I move and it keeps me awake each time and I have to put blanket on top of the bed sheet to be more comfortable.

The bathroom also very small and old looking but everything is in working order with hot and cold water.

The buffet breakfast selection is good with several different types of bread, sausages, omelets, ham, salami, cheese, salad and fresh fruits, tea/coffee, juices.

We get special discount on last minute booking from booking.com for 54 euro per night with breakfast.

The hotel also offers special dinner for 10 euro per person which we take and really satisfy with the food. The dinner consist of entry, soup (which we can choose from 2 selection), salad, main (we can choose from 3 different menu) and dessert. The restaurant is located in Grand Hotel Toplice with beautiful view over the lake and delicious food.
