To the New York City Diamond district. As we approached 47th and 5th ave I could see the word diamond but thought no, he wouldn't, would he? And just as he could see me smiling he let me know that he wanted to at least find a ring we both liked so he knew what to get. I was over the moon, a kid in a candy store is ...
... which would take us no longer than an hour, leaving us time to even take in the castle that night…a worthwhile suggestion to be sure. After stopping for a snack of čevapčiči, a Balkan meat log akin to Donner Kebab…and much, MUCH better than Burek…we started our hike. What we found was a beautiful trail, or more often a wooden walkaway along the steam, which crossed back and forth across the rapids. The walk itself was just ...
... very excited for on our Balkans adventure. The town was a short train ride away. The issue arriving that late at Bled Leske station was the bus’s were very infrequent. We stood under a bus shelter for what had to be half an hour wondering if a bus was ever going to come. It was one of those travel moments where you hold your breath hoping that what you read on a travel forum was right. I was about to go and enter a shop or something and try and ...

I feel like in a short time I have discovered a gem of a city in this beautiful country, Slovenia. I'm looking forward to seeing a bit more tomorrow morning before I have to end my short stay.
I'm happy I put a stop here in my itinerary - I'm going to be happy to return one day for a longer stay to explore more of Slovenia.

We also visited the best museum of our trip so far, the Ljubljana City Museum. The audio guide was free and really well done and a lot of the exhibits had things that you could touch or play with, as you can see from the photo of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Golf Hotel Bled
We loved it!
We stayed here for one night in December on a fantastic trip to Slovenia. The hotel location is perfect, and our view was exceptional. I would definitely recommend the lake view room. In fact, we got up early to take pictures and got some of the most picturesque images you can imagine. Lucky for us, we got these before the fog rolled in an hour later. The breakfast was excellent, with both hot and cold items. Unfortunately we didn't get a chance to experience the spa, but it looked superb, especially since it was all indoor.
The room was huge, clean and very comfortable. We were a little surprised Bled itself was very sleepy, but I'm sure it was the time of year. Overall, a great experience, and I would stay here again.
Fantastic Golf Hotel
What a fantastic place to stay!!!
I have to admit that I was a little worried that Lake Bled would be a little too sudate for me but ti's one of the best places I've ever been to.
The Hotel Golf was an excellent hotel, with great spa facilities and an excellent position in Bled.
Staff were very helpful, food was really good quality, rooms were clean and quite large with good sized balcony.
I would definately recommend satying here.
We stayed in Bled for 7 nights and then moved down to Portoroz & Piran for another week, but if I had the chance again I would definately just stay in Bled, there are lots of things to do and it's very easy to catch local transport to other parts of Slovenia.
The Hotel Golf is great!!!
We stayed in the Golf in early October and would highly recommend it. We had a lake view room. The view is amazing - alps on one side, lake and castle straight on and the island on the lake to the right - well worth the supplement. We were staying on a half board basis and the food was excellent. The buffet does get busy with coach tours, my advice would be to go to dinner slightly later as people tend to queue to get into the restaurant at opening time !
The leisure centre is excellent, it overlooks the lake, very relaxing to sit in the whirlpool and look out at the lake! I would definitely stay here again.
This hotel is without doubt one of the best hotels I have stayed at. The staff ARE the best staff I have encountered. It is true that the fellow residents left something to be desired being mainly a constant succession of 2 days here there and everywhere travellers mainly from the USA and Germany. It is also true that they were not in their youth.
Old Folks Home
Having just returned from four days at the Hotel Golf, Lake Bled I have to say I feel like I've escaped from an old folks home. This is a very average hotel still resting on it's laurels from a bygone age. The room was clean but uninspiring. It would be nice if the sound proofing in the room was a bit better so that you didn't have plumbing noises to cope with eveytime someone upstairs used the bathroom.
Breakfast was like feeding the masses but it was OK. My recommendation to anyone looking to stay in Lake Bled is try the brand new Hotel Lovec down the road, which is much cheaper and smarter.
we have just arrived back from staying at the golf holtel.The hotel is in a good position and our room over looked the lake,which was very picturesque.the only moan was because their is no air conditioning in the rooms,the noise from the evening entertainments around was a bit too much ,very little sleep ,if we had wnated to go to ibiza or such like we could have understood,seems a shame ,as it is a lovely area and the people are so friendly.
Solid 4* Hotel
We stayed at the Golf for 7 nights at the end of June. The hotel is a little above the lake, so the trip back up at the end of an evening can be tiring. On the other hand, the hotel is a bit removed from the various noises in Bled (church bells, hotel/restaurant entertainment, traffic, etc.). Rooms with a lake view are worth pursuing. The lack of air conditioning in the room was the only real drawback, and if you are only just turned 50, you will feel one of the younger guests !
The sound insulation between rooms was a definite plus, as we've stayed in a number of 4* hotels where this was a problem.
Outside temperatures ranged from high 70s to high 80s fahrenheit. The thunderstorms are worth watching - from the comfort of your balcony or covered restaurant !
We have just returned from Bled after a very enjoyable stay. The hotel and food are great. Rooms are quite large and very comfortable but we were in between the lift and the car park (which was unusually busy for the time of year)so was very noisy.
We stayed at this hotel in May 2005. I had specifically requested a lake side view and the additional cost for this was certainly worth it as the view across the lake and mountains was fantastic. We didn't eat main meals at the hotel (B&B only) but the buffet breakfast was probably one of the best I'd had: there was a huge choice and it was all well prepared. Probably the hotel's best feature is the superb spa on the ground floor. It has several heated swimming pools and hot tubs, with ample reclining chairs. While your there indulge yourself and have one of the treatments - pricey but well worth it, especially the massage. The room was very good, quite a lot of space, a nice balcony and clean bathroom. My only critisism was that the double bed was in fact two singles pushed together and they were quite soft. There is so much to see and do at Bled a week isn't enough. Try the rafting - the instructors are very helpful and amusing! the trip to the island is overpriced and probably not worth the effort - better to hire a rowing boat and do it yourself. Most people said the walk around the lake takes about 45 minutes. Don't belive them! I am a very fast walker and I couldn't do it in less than an hour. It is better to walk it slowly anyway and savour the magnificent views.
It pains me to write about this hotel and this place as i have traveled there every year over the past 6 years and tried to keep it a secret but it is now becoming very popular as is the whole country!, I first went in 1999 and there were very few english people staying in the resort of bled! I originally used to stay at the Park Hotel however this is closed so i cannot write an up to date review.
