A beautiful boutique hotel in a beautiful setting surrounded by mountains. The room was lovely with views from all windows. We were disappointed in the bathroom. It contained a claw foot tub with a hand held shower, but did not contain either stand up in the tub for showering or a stand alone shower. As tall people who are used to showers, this was a disappointment. Their breakfast was amazing in how it was beautifully displayed and the quality and the choices. Staff were lovely!

The best location in the Old Town on a quiet street. Very atmospheric to be in old quarters with its rooms in several separate entrances around the reception. Staff were wonderful. A bit difficult to find the distant parking area, but the staff were outstanding in picking us up with electric cart to take us into the Old Town and to the hotel (one cannot drive into the Old Town), as well as o n departure taking us with luggage back to car. Our first room had issues in that the hotel key to turn on lights resulted in dimming out to nothing after a few minutes! While this could not be repaired, there was a similar room next door that we were able to move into and that worked well. Room was charming and adequate size (not spacious); the bathroom was a bit small for two adults.

Who knew this existed in Slovenia?!?!? We were certainly aware of the Spanish Riding School in Vienna from past European trips. Very interesting tour! We appreciated the private tour as we saw lots of group tours while were there that appeared to be crowded. Our guide was very informative. She told us about the show and offered us the opportunity to attend it for an additional 7 euro per person (above what had been paid for the private tour) We were lucky enough to have our tour on a Friday afternoon, right before the horse show which is only offered then (or perhaps at one other time in the week?). This was most enjoyable!!!

Our guide (also ?Ekelena? by name!! -- excuse the spelling!) was terrific. Very knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the history of Slovenia, Croatia and the former Yugoslavia (and of Tito). Not sure there is much in Bled itself for a guide to expound upon (unlike eg Ljublijana or Trieste) , but she filled the time with teaching us about other things. The Pletna boat ride is a bit touristy but the only way to get to the very interesting island and church. We enjoyed sitting down there in cafe and having coffee and traditonal cake with her.

Demian (?spelling) was an outstanding guide. We learned so much about the history of Trieste and Istria in a well balance way of understanding its complex history. He spent a bit more time than the allotted time to show us as much as possible. Friendly, intelligent and with good humor, Demian (as a Slovenian with a personal history for Istria and Trieste going back to his grandparents, etc) made this beautiful city come to life for us . This was our favorite tour of the entire trip for sure!

He balanced our schedule with the primary tourist attraction but also afforded enough time and flexibility for us to explore at our own leisure. He went the extra mile to seek out experiences off the beaten path that only a local know. He was very friendly and personable and we often felt like we were travelling with an extra friend rather than a host. If you are looking for a turnkey experience, we definitely recommend Tarun and Holiday Adventure Tours for a personalized experience, no matter how long you plan to visit Slovenia, and we will be in touch with him when we book a trip to India in the future.

Tarun did an excellent job organising our transfers around Slovenia. Where he was not able to make it, he ensured that someone he trusted was there at the appointed time and knew exactly what they had to do. Tarun and the other people we met through Tarun were all very knowledgeable about Slovenia and, the places he booked for us, were amazing including Lepa Vida wines, our Soca River rafting experience and Broken Bones Distillery. He ensured we were at the appropriate places by the required time to make each of the tours and took us to some lovely out of the way places that as a tourist we would not have seen. He was an easy person to be around and had a great sense of fun and humour.

Tarun also ensured we got to do the things that I had found before engaging him and wanted to do like a day yacht trip from Izola south along the Slovenian coast to Croatia and back again on board, "Alice in Waterland". Damjan and Fredrica were the perfect hosts and couldn't do enough for us and our fussy group of eaters. I had also booked our accommodation all of which turned out to be fantastic.

I think the best thing about working with Tarun is he would have been happy to organise the whole trip for us or to work with me and fit in additional things around what I'd organised or wanted to do. He was very flexible.

Everyone we met in Slovenia were amazing. Kind, engaging and generous. The food in Slovenia is incredible. Beautiful fresh produce cooked to perfection. The water is very clean and the environment pristine. There are a number of fabulous walks, lakes and other adventures. I really thoroughly enjoyed our time in Slovenia and would go back again in a heartbeat and ask Tarun to help me organise the trip again.

Lepa Vida Boutique Winery. We loved our trip to this small winery. In addition to the wine tasting they created some amazing food to have with it and said, if they had of known in advance, they could have also catered to any allergies or intolerances. We tried each of their wines and loved them all. Walked away with 6 bottles of wine none of which made it home - they were too good. The winery owner was amazing, fantastic knowledge of wine, the winery's history and the local area. Couldn't recommend this winery too highly

I would say that the only things I think would have been useful were to know in advance how things work in Piran with the car and not to drive through the castle in Goriska Brda! We were clueless at first about getting to our hotel but one call to Hotel Piran and we understood what to do. In GB, the signage didn't really indicate that one shouldn't drive through the castle and that you park on top and walk from there. Luckily, we made it through without scraping any walls (of the car or castle!). Lastly, we didn't realize that Roundabout was the name of our tour services once in the country rather than kimkim but obviously, that became clear right away. Luka at Hotel Cubo was amazing. He was so friendly and warm and even loaned us the hotel's laminated map of Slovenia to return at the end of our trip. The whole experience was fabulous and we highly recommend your services!

We could give a full list of our highlights but that would be too long; however, we must give a high recommendation to Soča Splash rafting in Bovec, Winestronaut wine tours in the Vipava Valley, and Majerija for dinner.

We are a family of five - children aged 19,17,15. Domen did an excellent job planning the trip for us and taking into consideration our preferences. Communication was very smooth. First a telephone conversation, followed by a few iterations by mail. He was quite flexible and happy to adjust according to our feedback. Trip turned out to be well thought out, with the right mix of activities and places to stay. Having the entire trip and the hike maps available in apps is great and very convenient. Although there were some complicated logistics involved (transfer of luggage, mixed trips hiking + biking etc.), everything worked out 100% (e.g., pick up at 8:40 to drive to rafting = pick up at 8:40 on the mark). We have done several trips like this across the world. The service provided by Domen I would rate among the highest if not the highest. Many thanks to Domen and Slotrips.

Hotel Dobra Vila
Bovec

Excellent hotel. Hotel has charm, authenticity and character. Rooms, interior, garden are all great. Breakfast is excellent. But most of all we highly appreciated the warm, friendly staff. Highly recommended. I have seen many, many hotels professionally and during vacation - ranks among the best overall experience.

Try to avoid. No charm whatsoever. Very dull, boring hotel. Poor service. Roof terrace wasn't operational, airco was malfunctioning upon arrival. Also very impersonal, non-attentive staff. Breakfast is ok, but quite crowded. Only go here if you are looking for a ' functional place to stay ' and nothing else.

Hi Coen,
I was happy to read your wonderful review! Thank you so much for your feedback. :)
I'm happy to hear you have enjoyed your family vacation in Slovenia!

The City Hotel is one of the best if not the best value hotel in Ljubljana and as such, can not compare to the smaller, boutique hotels, like the Dobra Vila. I'm sorry to hear that the AC was malfunctioning and that the terrace was closed, but I hope that it did not spoil the overall experience. :)

Safe travels and welcome back anytime!

We had a terrific 9-day driving tour through Western Slovenia, focusing on beautiful Triglav National Park. Domen Strle, our virtual tour guide and travel agent, chose excellent places for us to stay and activities including hiking, fly-fishing and touring. Without his intimate knowledge of the area and his responsiveness to our questions, we would have had a difficult time planning such a trip (our first to Slovenia). He quickly accommodated last-minute changes to our schedule (e.g., an unplanned but very worthwhile stop in Lubljana; changing the day of our fishing trip), and provided feedback on activities we discovered en route. Altogether, the trip was planned just enough to avoid the stress of finding places to stay and eat, but with enough flexibility to allow spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment activities. The ability to switch digitally from places on the overall trip plan to Google maps driving instructions made navigation easy and painless. It made for a very diverse and fascinating trip, which we enjoyed immensely.

Hotel Reviews
Kekceva Domacija Homestead
Soča

This is an amazing setting with fascinating hosts. Nestled in the Trenta Valley between towering mountain walls, it is a green oasis of tranquility. So relaxing you will not want to leave. The hosts, Jozefina and Mitja, are remarkable people: Jozefina spent 3.5 years sailing around the world in a 60 ft sailing boat with her family, while Mitja was a world-class climber and Himalayan mountaineer. Now they run this place as well as an award-winning vineyard and winery up near the Austrian border. Their wines (as well as the home-cooked food) are superb. This only shortcoming is that the modernized rooms elegantly built in the old farmhouses are a bit cramped, with the bed in a tiny loft that is barely navigable. It’s part of the experience, and clearly not a place where you’re meant to spend time inside your room. Enjoy the beautiful out-of-doors.

Penzion Berc
Bled

Mountain refuge decor. Charming. No lake view and a bit noisy, but comfortable. Room A/C is individually adjustable. They did not put us in the superior room we had booked but rather in standard rooms. Cost difference was refunded through travel agency. Restaurant is over-priced and our steak was not done to order.

This hotel may initially look a big long-in-the-tooth, staid and stuffy, but once you settle in you will realize it is fabulous. Wonderful Art-Deco decor, cozy libraries with sitting areas, beautiful garden and terrific location. Breakfast is fantastic. We left early one day and they packed a lunch for the two of us that could feed four people. Incredibly nice, attentive staff. You will feel pampered - like you are traveling first-class on a luxury liner in the 1920s.

Our experience in Slovenia was magical. Nika understood what type of travelers we were and catered the entire experience to our specific interests perfectly. The variety of landscape, culture, and activities we were able to do and experience each day was incredible. Every day was a new adventure and thanks to Nika's expert scheduling, we never felt rushed. We had ample time to take in every experience and not simply check it off the list. I only wish we could have stayed longer. In short, 5/5! Read more

Great hotel- very comfortable and the breakfast was amazing. We also loved having access to free bikes to explore Bled- that was the cherry on top for sure.

Adrenaline Check Eko Place
Bovec

Adrenaline Check Eko Place is totally unique and fosters a strong sense of community among the campers. It's a great place for families and had the cleanest facilities I've ever seen- it seemed to be the result of a strong sense of cooperation and mutual respect from everyone. It was safe and comfortable. The staff was friendly and laid back and they were naturally experts on the area and provided great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Bovec is a slice of heaven in the Alps and Adrenaline Check encapsulates the friendly, nature respecting attitude of the region.

We had such a fantastic honeymoon and would def use Kim Kim again depending on the country. One thing that would have been nice was to know of the local holidays beforehand so we could planned accordingly. There were several Slovenian holidays (where lots of attractions were closed) during our trip and a wine festival in Gredic that would have been fun to include if we had planned accordingly.
