Garni Hotel "Berc"
Travel Blogs from Bled
Bled is the kind of place where you will need to charge your camera battery several times a day, it is just so breathtakingly beautiful. We were contemplating the thought of not making the trip out to Bled, but decided to go ahead with our plans anyway and are very glad that we did. The town is based around an expansive lake that is so calm and …
<Brian's brief chronological list of "highlights" (and of whinging)> - Traveled back to Bled... the pension where we were staying provided bikes so we rode to Vintgar Gorge. The bike ride went for over an hour going uphill, we were then rewarded with 1.6km of walking along a gorge... yay! It was really pretty. - Ride back only took 20 mins …
... know was compulsory. It cost us 150 euros for our oversight. Ray's first fine ever. Bled has been worth the hassles. We have walked the lake, coffeed on the lake and caught a chairlift to see the lake. Tomorrow we are riding bikes to a gorge near the lake. We are also trying to rest a little before we move on. On Monday we fly out of Split to Madrid and start another adventure. Love to all Jenny and ...
... came through in the afternoon and there were spotty showers with more to come overnight, so we packed most things into the car preparing for the rain. We went down to the lake to watch the sun go down over the water one last time before heading to bed just before the rain. ...
... She was sitting in the front seat of the bus and I think she nearly lost it as the large Mercedes-Benz bus drove at seemingly high speeds through these small villages. All three of us talked to a young local Bohinj man who was working in London and was back for several weeks visiting his family. He was very chatty and had a great sense of humor and like the Aussie allergist, he had travelled extensively. We didn't solve any of the problems of the world but we had a ...

Hotel owner cancelled our reservation because he did not like us!
We made reservation to this hotel based on several good reviews. We received confirmation two weeks ahead by email. When we arrived finally to the hotel, we complained that we had tough time to find the hotel because of missing signs. The hotel owner responded with antisemitic comments ("people like you ....") and then told us that he will not give us the reserved room (basically cancelling on the spot our hotel reservation). So we had to look at 7 PM for another hotel room at this popular resort.
We were agroup of 10 intrepid female trekkers from Northumberland looking for good walking and good food, we got it all in Sloveneia! This hotel was beautiful and the staff so friendly and helpful. Spotlessly clean, great continental breakfast and a "trusty" bar for making tea and coffee when ever you liked as well as alcoholic drinks. Although it rained for our first three days ( and i mean RAIN)!! it still didn't dampen our spirits in such lovely surroundings.
Many thanks to all the staff there, we will definately be back in the future!
Excellent have booked again!
Excellent small hotel in quiet location but close to lake and town centre. Staff were extremely helpful. Rooms very well appointed and spotless. Breakfast buffet was very good. We have booked again for February!
5 nights in this hotel were just excellent. The Hotel is set just above the lake, set back in quiet picturesque streets. It is about 3 minutes walk from the lakeshore, and its peaceful location means you can leave the hustle and bustle behind. The rooms are comfortable, well appointed, with TV, phone and lovely bathrooms with power shower. Each room has either a balcony or terrace, and the use of natural materials and traditional style is superb. The entire hotel was spotlessly clean.
A truely wonderful hotel to spend a few days. The surroundings were beautiful and superbly tranquil and quiet. This is a place to go if you are looking for a relaxing break and only 5 mins walk into the town. Rooms very clean, TV had many english channels and balcony was very private. Overall excellent value in this beautiful hotel - will definitely come back and hopefully stay for longer the next time.
An excellent hotel. Everything I had read before is true. Luka is SOOOO helpful. He lent us maps and generally made us feel like we were visiting his family. The rooms were great. I loved the honesty bar...... just remember to take some small bars of soap as these were not in the room and I had not remembered the showere gel. A very minor complaint but iverall my impression was 100 percent positive. I would definitly recommend this hotel.
I agree with all the positive things in the other reviews. This is a great place to stay - very clean, comfortable, spacious rooms, fabulous breakfast buffet, very helpful staff, convenient, quiet location, free internet access, bikes, honesty bar. Luca, the owner was very friendly and helpful and even drove us to the station on the day we left. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
My husband and I visited Croatia and Slovenia (by car) in late May 2006. I had looked through Rick Steve's Eastern Europe travel guide that recommended several places but found most of them never even returned our emails. There was a "congress" (i.e. convention) in Lublijana, Slovenia and we weren't able to find a hotel. We drove up to Lake Bled and decided to stop in at the "Mayer" pension that Steve's had recommended in his book. (They never returned the 2 emails I'd sent but I thought maybe they had space.) They were full. A stone's throw from the Mayer pension was a very nice looking, new place "Garni Hotel Berc". To be honest I thought it would be very expensive. However, it was actually less!!! What a find! The proprietor was very welcoming, helpful, friendly -- spoke English fluently. And the entire little hotel was less than a year old. The rooms were wonderful, large private balcony with sitting area, large bathroom. It was beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The breakfast room downstairs was great. Food excellent. Everything was spotlessly clean. And they have a free PC sitting out for guests to use. WE WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK and I would never hestitate to recommend to anyone!!!
I stayed at the Garni Hotel Berc at the beginning of May 2006. This is an excellent Hotel, great value for money and is ideally located for for visiting Bled and the surronding area. The Hotel is very clean and the rooms are very comfortable. All the staff, especially Luca were very friendly and helpful. Bled itself is a beautiful area and l hope to return in a few years.
