Just back from a three week trip around Europe that included many hotel stays but Pension Union or 'Union Hotel' was by far the most impressive. From the moment of our arrival we were greeted by a warm handshake and a 'so ye must be the Irish couple'. Tom the owner then proceeded to help with our luggage and personally show us to our room.
-A large room, plenty of storage, very clean. There is an elevator up to the room which is a godsend when travelling with heavy suitcases.
-Great location, just a short stroll down to the lake, probably better located than some of the bigger hotels like the 'Golf' that require a mountain hike to get up to it. A bank, shop, hairdresser and bakery onsite also.
-Great food, generous servings of food at breakfast that include eggs cooked to order, fruit,pastries, breads, ham and cheese. We had dinner there two nights also...the mushroom risotto was amazing....ordered it on two more occasions whilst in Italy and nothing tasted as good as the one I had in this hotel!
-Very personalized stay, the brothers provided a wealth of knowledge about the area and recommended the things to do/see and also the stuff that is a waste of time. They are genuinely interested in their guests and don't just see them as a number which we found in some of the larger hotels. To top it off they also offered to drive us to the train station at the end of our stay which was a nice touch. All in all we had a lovely stay and would have no hesitations in recommending it to other people visiting bled.
