Reviewed 24 May 2013

Just returned for a 3 night stay with friends and was truly disappointed with the rooms and service. In 3 nights there was no change of bed linen and my case towels. Rooms more hostel like than hotel. I should have been charged 80 Euros for my room which is a joke beds and pillow terrible TV didn't work and no mini bar although cabinet sit therein the corner, Manager barely able to greet guests and not aware of how outdated everything is. The gardens could be beautiful because of there location but need a complete over haul. Sun chairs would have been welcome to relax be the river but none available. Breakfast was a complete joke, when we came down at 9am almost everything was gone and told the people before must have eaten everything. No toaster and had to ask for replacement not always provided. Must say coffee machine great though. The biggest plus was the wonderful man who works at the hotel couldn't do enough for us, ice for our drinks table and chairs moved onto the grass. Best thing about the place. We found Hotel Sterk when going for a meal and for the same price could have stayed with a swimming pool and spa and the food was lovely. This Hotel in the right hand could be spectacular, check out Hiso Francos of The new Vila Istra Lake Bled both excellent.

Dear Su333,

Thank you for taking your time to write a review of your Hotel Lucija experience.

From your recommendation of Hiša Franko and Villa Istra we gather you have a good eye for luxury. Vila Istra is a recently renovated old-style 4 star hotel located in a renowned popular tourist destination town Bled (lake), and Hiša Franko in Kobarid is a famous luxury dinning experience worthy of a Michelin star.

Hotel Lucija on the other hand, promotes active lifestyle in untouched Slovenian nature ... Our guests are outgoing active people - hikers, cyclists and fly-fishing enthusiasts, who spend most of their time outdoors, exploring the surrounding natural beauty.

We apologize if your expectations were too high ...

Hotel Lucija didn't really impress us like some comments suggest. It definitely is an old fashioned hotel without any unnecessary luxury. Our room however, as well as the bathroom, was spacious, which was pleasant. The double windows keep out the noise from the street down below, though keeping the light out is more complicated: our room did not have any curtains. We had to ask for hot water each day, because one of the pumps was out of order. We asked for glasses too, since we didn't have any in the room. They gladly provide you with anything you need, they do their best to make things as comfortable as possible. The owner/mamager also came up with all kind of suggestions, which was really nice. We paid 64 euro's for a double bedded room, so that's not too expensive.

Breakfast was okay, though they run out of bread and other food real quickly. We thought one of the owners/managers was really nice, the other one was less cheerful.

All together this hotel is okay to stay in for a couple of days if your standards are not too high. It is well located to visit and see lots of interesting things from here. It depends on your personal preferences wether you like this hotel or not. We thought it was okay, nothing special but definitely a good place to spend a few days.

We stayed here in September for 2 nights and found it to be a great base to explore the soca valley from. The hotel itself is a little old fashioned but the owners work really hard to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We had breakfast and dinner in the hotel and both were good. The hotel is located right beside a turquoise man made lake which was a nice area to walk around and enjoy an ice cream during one sunny afternoon.
There is not much else in the village but it is a good base to visit kobarid, Tolmin and bovec from.

This is a lovely old fashioned hotel in the mountains in Slovenia next to a lovely lake on the Soca River. You can swim in the lake (it's cold though!) or hire kayaks or canoes just a couple of minutes walk away. The hotel looks a bit dated but has a lot of charm and has nice spacious comfortable rooms. The breakfast is fine although not remarkable and the staff (a father & son) are really friendly and cannot do enough to help. The place really does have a lot of charm and is in a lovely quiet location; it is perfectly situated for walking and kayaking & rafting trips on the Soca riva (which I highly recommend!). There are some lovely walks nearby.The 'lake view' rooms do not really overlook the lake very well as there are trees blocking the view..which otherwise would be absolutely stunning as the lake is an amazing turquoise colour. There is also a road in between the hotel & the lake which can be noisy in the mornings as the logging trucks brake to go over the bridge; as there is no aircon you might want the windows open on hot nights and this might disturb light sleepers; if this is the case ask for a room at the back! it is a really quiet sleepy little place most of the time- very relaxing. The staff were really helpful, especially the son of the owner.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter- big rooms only available at the front.

Sorry for the lateness of this review. I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our time at this Hotel. We only stayed one night but we had a great time with Dean and Barbara who look after us very well. This hotel is surround by the most beautiful river way and the colour is amazing . It was a colour that I've never seen before. Its worth taking a walk around the water, there is a walk way and remember to take the camera.

The rooms were spacious and very clean. They had a lovely bathroom and we had a view overlooking the river. We found the price reasonable.

We ate at the resturant next door across the river. The meal was lovely and plentiful. We then spent some time on the patio out the back of the hotel with Dean and Barbara as we were the only guests. It was a very enjoyble and interesting evening. Drank some fantastic wine and shared some good stories.

Breakfast was tasty and it was the usual european breakie whick we love. The breads are so yummy. If you are travelling in the district Hotel Lucjia is worth checking out.
