“Great location right on the lake”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

The words cosy, pokey and tiny come to mind as adjectives for this guest house. That was alright for single use for a few nights but I'd search for something bigger if sharing a room or staying for a long time. There seemed to be plenty of accommodation options around Lake Bled. Having said that, I thought this guest house was great for what I wanted and very reasonably priced. The location was excellent (especially if you had a front room with a view). The service was friendly and the rooms were very clean, modern and pink! The boat hire and excellent restaurant next door added to the charm. Nice hotel, but tiny.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

We loved our stay at Carman Guest House. We had a double room with lake view. The view was breathtaking. The price was very reasonable. The room was very clean and nicely decorated. The room was quite small. There was enough storage space to keep our luggage, but not enough space to spread out. We were brought a lovely breakfast right to our room for only 6euro per person. The location is great right on the lake with an easy walk to Bled. There were a few good restaurants near by. Everyone at the front desk was very helpful and kind. My only complaints would be that the bed was a bit too soft for my personal liking, it was a bit noisy with other people moving through the hallway and the road noise was noticeable. Overall, we would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: We loved the lake view room, its worth a little extra!

The guest house is located directly in front of the Bled Lake, with a 10 minute walk into town. The rooms are small however clean and bright. The room also has an ensuite bathroom.We spent most of our time outdoors, so did not require a spacious room. Right outside the guesthouse, along the river, there are rowing boats that can be rented, which is quite convenient. Staff were friendly and very helpful.

My husband and I stayed with another two couples for a wedding in Bled 3 weeks ago. Carmen Guest House was perfectly situated, on the lake, by the bustop and a lovely walk to the town. The staff at the Carmen were both helpful and friendly. The guest house is clean and though the room we stayed in was very small compared to our friends's rooms, it was still comfortable, warm and clean. We could certainly recommend having a breakfast at the Carmen, it was brought to our room and was simply delicious and fresh! We would definitely stay at the Carmen Guest House if we return to Bled again or should I say when we return to Bled! Kathy and Dilwyn

The location of B&B Carman is a little bit far from town Bled center. And nevertheless the hotel is easily accessible by road or walkway along the lake (about 1km). But, only 50 meters away is the bus stop for the buses that travel from Ljubljana to Lake Bohinj /this line bus only/.
Carman is a really small, maybe 10 rooms, no more, but nice hotel, clean, with kind and friendly staff. The view from the windows is lovely - the lake is just at hand and the nature around is so beautiful. Breakfast is not included but you can ordered it for € 5. Moreover, only a few paces there is a small supermarket and a restaurant.
And there are boat rentals also opposite the hotel entrance. You can ask how to get to Vintgar Gorge or to The Castle over the lake, or whatever - the staff is very helpful and competent.
The only drawback I think is that it is located right to an active path and it's a little bit noisy if you open the window. But it does not bother for me personally, because once I went around the lake and the mountains all day, always I sleep instantly in the evening :)

The location of B&B Carman is great... close to the water, with excellent swimming literally right out the door, located on the gorgeous pathway around the lake, grocery store right nearby. Gorgeous view of the Island right out your window. Free parking. Boats to rent (12E for 4 person boat, 17E for 6 person) to island which was much cheaper than having someone take you (and more fun!). The rooms themselves are fine... European small, but comfy enough. No refrigerators/ microwave. One flight of stairs. Rooms are very clean and tidy. However, there is no air conditioning. We came in August and it was VERY hot! And if you opened the windows, the bugs were almost unbearable. We also have small children and the road outside the front door (literally a step outside the door) was crazy traffic-y. Felt very dangerous constantly trying to cross it. Also, when we did leave the room windows open for air, the noise from the road was really loud, especially the big trucks that passed by.

The town of Bled is very romantic and enjoyable. This hotel is actually right at the beginning of Mlino Village, but still right on the lake shore.
Pros: swimming is right outside the front door, free boat rental, perfect views from the room, clean and tidy
Cons: in case you are planning on staying during summer beware no air con, just a ventilator. You can open windows, but than it will result in bugs and awefull street noise, since hotel is right on the main road; Matress was too soft.
