we hadn't meant to spend our first night in Bled but it was easier to catch the 13 Euro bus to Bled than the bus to Ljubljana. We found the tourist office about to close and she called around for rooms for us. The best she could do was 80 Euro/night, a price range that was repeated twice by nearby places that had a room w/ two singles and another that had no room that night. We happened on Vila Gorenka by wandering up away from the town and were pleased with the 21 Euro per person rate quoted. Our front bedroom was 'tired' and we had the bathroom-down-the-halls (toilet to left/shower to right) but the price was right. only later did we realize that this was a Rick Steves 'pick' and he'd said much the same things. Unfortunately, we were not offered breakfast (and would have appreciated it) and the owner was rather aloof and almost unfriendly. Reading these reviews, i'll put it down to a 'bad day' or maybe his wife was away (we never saw her and very little of him). All in all, in a pricy resort town with scant offerings near the lake, this was of good value for money and i would recommend it.
