Reviewed 27 October 2013

The hotel is beautiful and the staff really nice. The room was confortable and everything was well decorated.
Breakfast was good, nothing amayzing.
The city is really small, so the hotel was close to everything (restaurantes, tourist info, market, etc)

Delicious food, friendly and helpful staff, in a really gorgeous location. The two brothers who run the villa really made our visit, they were very accommodating and helped us plan activities throughout the day. The chefs menu at night for dinner was so great! Might seem on the expensive side relatively, but literally worth every penny!!

Beautifully decorated, this hotel feels special and comfortable all at the same time. The hosts were charming and breakfasts were delicious. We ate at the hotel on the last night of our stay - a delicious meal. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Room Tip: pay a little extra for a room on the balcony

This is probably the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. I cannot add much to the other reviews, only stress the main points again: The hotel is a converted post-office, thus has its peculiar layout (some rooms with high ceilings and very spacious. But it was not merely renovated but altered with extremly nice touches, from the garden design via plants to the library. It features a "cinema", a rooftop lookout, a great wine cellar. But above all the very friendly and helpful owners made this a special stay. It seems that they not only enjoyed creating a wonderful atmosphere with the rooms, but also keep enjoying makeing one's stay pleasurable.

We will definitely return. And I can recommend it wholeheartedly.

We stayed at Dobra Vila in April 2013, between the winter and summer seasons. The hotel - an old telephone exchange building - is gorgeous, with well-appointed interior and exterior public spaces, mixing 19th century charm with pieces of modern art. The rooms are simple but romantic, with high ceilings, large windows - many with terrific views - and ours was immaculate; the bathroom and shower, in particular, were luxurious, with brand new fixtures. The food - both included continental breakfast and set menu suppers and wine - were excellent; breakfast was basic but well-presented (muesli, fruit, cured meats, yoghurt, etc.) while our five course dinner was locally-sourced and gourmet, with the chef having previously worked in a Michelin-starred establishment - a steal at 20 euros per head. As delightful as the hotel was, it was surpassed by the service. Granted, we nearly had the place to ourselves during our stay given the low season, but the new management (two brothers that have had the hotel just over a year), was courteous, attentive, and extremely helpful in terms of organizing rafting, walks, etc. So much so that we extended our stay just to enjoy the hotel another day - and when we accidently left our credit card at the front desk, they drove 30 mins down the road to catch up with us in Kobarid and return it. Bovec is a popular destination with lots of places to stay, but you will not find anywhere better - or better value - than Dobra Vila.

We had a lovely time at Hotel Dobra Vila. The staff we SO helpful and friendly, the house is beautiful, and the room was really nice. Walking distance from Bovec itself, and you can get a discount on tours/trips from Bovec.
I can't praise the staff enough though. Welcoming and helpful, they were genuinely concerned after my husband had a bad kayaking experience (nearly drowned) and brought tea up to our room when we just wanted to relax. They even called the rafting company to see what had happened, and were surprised to hear that the company hadn't called us to check in and make sure my husband was OK after the incident. They just went out of their way to make sure we were looked after, and made any request seem like no trouble at all (even weird ones like borrowing two spoons (for dessert) or some salt!).
Breakfast was superb. A selection of cereals, home made jams, bread, little fruit confits in cute jars, juices, a wide selection of teas, soy milk available for us (yay!!!), plenty of fresh fruit, and plenty more that I can't remember. It was lovely to eat out in the inside/outside terrace area.
Anyway, it was a great place and worth it to pay a bit more than we usually do for hotels! We'll definitely be back next time we're in Bovec.

Very comfortable rooms. Wonderful deck and grounds. Food fresh and prepared with care. Staff attentive, unpretentious. Elevator to the third floor! Extensive library. This place is fantastic. Would rather stay here in summer than at the comparably priced more modern hotel in town.
