“friendly and helpful...”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

just returned from a great Easter staying in this hotel close to the lake in Bohinj, Slovenia. We were 2 of maybe 4/5 people staying in the hotel over 4 days or so. We had planned to walk up to a local mountain hut and stay the night when we first arrived, and then return to spend 3 nights in hotel center. Last minute we changed out plans and stayed...the staff were so very friendly and even when we arrived late for dinner one evening (we were the only ones eating their that night as far as I could tell) the chef and waitress bent over backwards to make sure we weren't rushed, were very helpful to make sure we ate what we wanted.

A small example of how the hotel did as much for us as possible...the manager lent me walking poles for out little mountain adventure and insisted I didn't pay a penny...our room was spacious, it had a small lounge, large balcony and good sized bedroom. All fittings and fixtures were really modern, and it felt new...the bathroom was large with a great shower. We could be on the balcony looking up at Mount Triglav the highest peak.

I could write lots more about this area of Slovenia, having been a few times, I think its fantastic. I've usually stayed at the hotel Jezero next door to Center, but from now on I think its Center all the way.

A few points which make it great 1. Staff 2. Location - right next to the tourist information centre and a super market 4. Very close to the lake 5. You can rent a bike opposite the hotel 6...food... lots of it...its not a la carte, but if you like to eat after a hard day on the hill/bike/river then try the pizzas!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the west side...

A decent room in a modern hotel, a good restaurant (and a very good breakfast), helpful people (they have a taxi to collect guests from the station), in a quiet position with plenty of parking space, and not very expensive. Particularly suitable as a base for people who are interested in nature, wanting to climb or trek in the Julian Alps or explore the lake.

Another enjoyable way to spend a day is to get the slow old train from Bohinj Bistrica (the next village - the hotel taxi will take you if you want) along the beautiful green Soca valley to Kanal for lunch (trout, say, at the Hotel Kriznic), then back again in the afternoon.

No problem paying by credit card. There's a computer in the bar that you can use to check your email, etc. Shop, tourist office and post-office next door.

The Center is a family run hotel and this shows in the way that everyone there is focused on keeping the guests happy. Smiling from the moment of we arrived, they made our holiday even better in this beautiful village. Food is plentiful and very good, and rooms are clean and fresh. The only improvement that would be important is to install air conditioning as our room was very hot in the night.

Room Tip: odd numbered rooms face east, so should be cooler

Family run hotel. Classified 3 star but goes up higher to almost 4 star. Very well refurbished large rooms .The staff are very friendly and all go out of their way to please the clients. We are 3 times repeaters at Hotel Center and had recommended it to our family members and also friends. All have same opinion.
Half board bases is a good deal., with wide range of daily Menu. , including hot breakfast is always very delicious with great choices. Next to small supermarket, Info Office, Post Office.
The location is one of the best in Slovenia. We look forward to go again , hopefully soon......Marius Schembri( Malta.)

Ended up here purely by chance hence the title. It's always difficult to gauge a Hotel by standing in reception but this had a good feel. There is not much accomodation in Bohinj but this hotel is a small family run business and is situated in the same block as the tourist office and a supermarket and a 5 min walk to the lake.

We looked at the room before taking it, and we were so pleased we did. We ended up staying 2 nights here and we had one of the new rooms downstairs, a very large room with 3 beds and the bathroom was large with a big shower - all clean and tidy and very quiet at night. Parking was right outside the door and we had a small terrace with table and chairs, the upstairs rooms have balconies.

We ate in the hotel resturant both nights the food was simple but extremly tasty and good value for money. It obviously was good as locals were eating there too. Breakfast was also good, a buffet selection of cold meets/cheeses etc, and also hot food cooked to order. We were offered omelets and we felt this was a good choice.

Overall the hotel is excellent value for money and all the staff we dealt with were pleasent and ready to help with any of our requests.
