    Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hotel Toplice Bled

    Top marks for Toplice

    from

    I had slight reservations about this hotel prior to booking, mainly stemming from the architecture, which leaves a bit to be desired. I was also concerned about it size and felt it might be a bit souless....you know, a throwback to its communist era.

    All of this was completely dispelled on arrival. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful, having been freshly decorated and refitted. Indeed they were quite luxurious. The bathrooms were spotless and had everything you could possibly want or need.

    Although the hotel is large, the public rooms are exquisite and the views overlooking Lake Bled, are to die for!

    The health spa was also lovely, as were the staff. I really cannot fault it atall.

    Breakfast is abundent.

    We visited 'Villa Bled' another luxury hotel in the area.....there is no contest in my opinion. Toplice wins hands down.

    We had escaped from the relentless heat and crowds of Italy. Slovenia was literally a breath of fresh air. We will be back...and that goes for my teenage daughters, who also loved it. So it's not just a place for the 'older' holiday maker.

    It is well, well, worth the extra for a room overlooking the lake.

    Beautiful view

    from

    Visited the hotel for our honeymoon last year. Fantastic view compensated for the tiny bedroom. Evening meals inadequate. Chef and kitchen staff obviously try very hard but never quite succeeded. Breakfasts very substantial and saw us through to dinner time. We would return again when we could afford a suite rather than a standard room and would not opt for half board basis. Resort was clean and never overly busy.

    Panorama Restaurant

    from

    We didn't stay at the Hotel but did eat at its Panorama Restaurant. It was our worst dining experience during our week in Bled. The food was over-priced and of poor quality. My wife's main course arrived while she was still eating her first and the waiter seemed embarrassed and didn't know what to do apart from stand there holding it until she had finished!! My main dish was a medium rare fillet of beef. Medium rare it was not, fillet it was not and I believe it is questionable if it was beef or not!! The vegetables were a very dismal apology for food. As this was our first night we began to wonder if this was a reflection of Slovenian catering but we are delighted to say that everywhere else we ate in Bled was far, far better.

    Good except for food

    from

    Stayed in the hotel twice. Lovely views from lakeside of hotel. Staff mostly friendly and helpful, and the reception desk is efficient. Wonderful lounge but small bedrooms. Dining room decor is good, but the food below standard. Breakfast is poor, and evening food is varied but not plentiful, not hot, not particularly tasty. Service is good with waiters keen to please .. particularly as tips are important to them.

    The five star is for views; otherwise three star is more correct.

    Cheesy and disappointing.

    from

    We booked into this hotel, and were passed around from pillar to post between three of the hotels in the same 'chain'. The room we ended up with did have a beautiful view, but the decor was very dated. And the room was not ready to recieve us, even though we arrived after lunch. Would NOT stay here again. The staff were rude and unhelpful even after messing up our booking.

    Solution to the so-so food

    from

    I have stayed at this hotel four times, twice in suites and twice in standard lake-front rooms. The entire hotel was shut down for a top-to-bottom renovation in 2002. Bathrooms are large and luxurious with top quality fittings.

    Cheaper rooms are available across the hall from the lake-front rooms, but they are directly on the busy road that circumnavigates the lake.

    Staff is helpful, knowledgable and utterly professional.

    Wonderful lobby bar/lounge with floor to ceiling curved walls of glass. Live music in season.

    The only drawback is the food -- especially the lackluster breakfast. Forget lunch or dinner here and have the concierge book you a table at Ocarina -- by far the best restaurant in Bled. It's an easy walk from the hotel.

    Most comfortable beds in a hotel

    from

    We stayed for a week at the beginning of September 2004. The weather was warm and sunny and the resort was restful and tranquil. Both sides of the beds in the hotel were adjustable so each could get the mattress as hard or soft as personally required. Absolute bliss! Woke refreshed and relaxed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms comfortable and the view fantastic looking over the lake. The food was the least memorable but other guests said it was above average food for Slovenia. We never went hungry anyway. I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a relaxing, comfortable holiday in tranquil surroundings.

    Wonderful

    from

    It will be a long life memory - my sister got married in lake Bled and was residing in Toplice Hotel where they had their wedding party. The place is beautiful and the staff are very helpful and friendly. Lake Bled is one of the beautiful places I have travelled to and we are all going back! Congratulations Claire & Graig!

    Wonderful Holiday

    from

    We stayed for 10 days at the Toplice in July 2004 and had a wonderful time. Fellow guests had been returning for many, many years and had nothing but praise for the staff of this wonderful establishment. The only drawbacks were the lack of outdoor swimming pool (the outdoor pool was lake water and was certainly not five-star quality), the indoor pool was freezing - this may have been a Slovenian interpretation of healthy, but chilled me to the marrow! However, food was excellent, the balcony and lake view room was clean and fairly spacious, bed was comfortable, and staff were delightful. We will be going again - and will go every year when they have sorted out the pool.

    Luxury on the lake

    from

    This is a truly wonderful hotel in a fantastic location. We stayed off peak and they bumped us up to a suite. Wow! The balcony doors opened right out onto a stunning aspect of Lake Bled. It's extremely luxurious, the decor is very stylish and the staff are very friendly.

    Highly recommended.

    Hurray! We heard back from a hotel in Lake Bled, Slovenia. While our apartment couldn't accommodate us until 7/25, Mark secured a small suite for us at -- wait for it -- President' Tito's summer home, now Vila Bled, right on the lake.

    From the Rick Steves Eastern Europe guidebook: Tito entertained international guests here (big shots from the communist and non-aligned world, from Indira Gandhi to Nikita Kruschchev to Kim II Sung to Raul Castro.) Since ...

    I have a slight confession to make. Having now reached the grand old age of twenty-seven, until today, I had never ridden a horse. Ever. Okay, as a kid I maybe sat on the odd Shetland pony and was led around a paddock the size of small pond but I had never been pony trekking. It was something I had always wanted to do, despite the fact horses scare the heejebus out of me. Mattijs and I had planned long before now to go horse riding and somehow it had never happened but now we had our ...

    ... perspective which can result in a distorted or biased view of the world. So guys the way I view children, based on my knowledge of teaching is a professional deformation. The only thing I could find similar in English is talking shop but after discussion with my friend, it's not completely the same; it's totally less harsh. I suppose our profession can distort how we see the world but what if it can have the polar opposite effect too? What if it builds how we see the world ...

As we walked we checked out the shops and do some people watching. We time it nicely to catch the ferry and get back to the car and start the drive back to Ljubljana. On the return we find a Designer Outlet Mall and stop for a look. Not much there but got some drinks and something to eat before heading ...

    ... We also took some for later lunch and snacks. After we had our fill it was off to check into the other hostel. We picked two different ones because we thought we were going to have a super late arrival time last night and the second hostel has limited reception hours.

    The new hostel is quite interesting. There are three rooms total: a double, one with 8 beds and one with 11. We are in the room with 11 and there are nine people total. The bunks ...
