“The Absolute Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2014

The staff at Vila Bled are by far the best we have ever encountered in all of our travels! Not only did they go out of their way to accommodate our every need, but the front desk staff are great historians on their beloved Lake Bled and Slovenia. The gondolas to take the trip to the Church on the island in the middle of the lake are also free to guests. One cannot go wrong choosing to stay here.

Room Tip: I don't think there is a "bad" room at Vila Bled - this was once Tito's summer hom...

I chose Vila Bled for a romantic stay with my fiancee and it was a great choice. The hotel is beautifully located on the lake shore with a terrace overlooking the lake. The staff was extremely helpful and nice.
The hotel is in a walking distance from the center (2 km) and there are bikes available for free for the guests.
The breakfast was very good with big choice of food and delicious fresh juices.

We decided to stay again in Vila Bled, because of the tremendous view form the room to the lake, tha castle and the island. We prefer a suite in the 3rd floor, because it is really big and overlooking the garden too. The walks with our dog through the endless garden are a delight every morning. And all the remainings of Tito and his time are interesting, well kept and still in good shape.

We have been only 3 couples and a family at that time, so the whole hotel was very quite - it would be nice, if more guests would chose Tito's favourite place.

Room Tip: Corner suites give you both views - lake and garden

This was Tit0's palace on Lake Bled. Good views of the lake. Excellent breakfast with excellent service. Spa was very good and was used by a number of guests. It was a look back in history and for that reason, justified the 60's decor. The property is magnificient.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 November 2013

While not for everyone, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Vila Bled. The hotel has an air of faded communist grandeur. We had a large room (bedroom, sitting room, bath) on the third floor over looking the beautiful island church. The room has a bit of 1960s flare but if you've done any research, that is what you should expect here. We were late in the season and the hotel was pretty much deserted. We spent several hours roaming the hotel and exploring hidden rooms and even ventured up the hill to see the "updated" vila that Tito never finished.

If you like art deco, check out the hidden room in the bar (behind the mirrors). You can almost see Tito's ghost entertaining in here. Now, it is used as a bit of a storage room but you can still see its great bones.

The general manager gave us a great tour and was very informative about the vila's history.

Additionally, we enjoyed a great breakfast as well as dinner in the restaurant - both alone so we really felt like we were the only two guests.

The Vila Bled may not have all the luxuries of a 5 star hotel but we found it comfortable, charming and totally unique. If you want to sleep at a place with history and maybe have a story or two to tell, then by all means spend a night or two here.

Room Tip: Nothing beats waking up to the view of the church island. Incredible.

We stayed there for one night on October 18th. We got a big room on the third floor facing the famous Bled church. The room is big with spacious bathroom. There was an insect in the room that bit me at night. Breakfast is so so when comparing to other hotel of the same rate.
