Vila Gorenka
Ranked #20 of 24 Hotels in Bled
Reviewed 18 August 2017

The owner was rude since my arrival. He didn't give me a ground floor as requested because my desability, and even complain about getting the luggage upstairs. Actually he complained about everything! My room was very poorly decorated, nothing matched, with no air conditioner and too many used towels and sheets. The bathroom was shared and with a dirty bathtube. They expect the clients clean the toilet with baby wipes! So, stay
anyplace else in Bled, but there!

Room Tip: Choose a room in a different place, but there!

My boyfriend and I loved our stay at the amazing Vila Gorenka - we stayed for 4 nights in the middle of August and were fairly late booking it. Having stayed at Bled before in an AirBnB, I already knew how expensive Bled can be for eating out - and I didn't realise at the time of booking that this place had a kitchen. The kitchen is outside the main building in a converted garage and fully equipped (currently no oven, just a hob), even with a dishwasher, available for all guests to use 24/7. Janez the owner even leaves out free cereal, milk and fruit for guests to help themselves for breakfast. There is seating inside the kitchen area and outside and the owner should take advantage of taking photos of the new kitchen ASAP as it is a real selling point - we managed to save lots of money whilst travelling by eating at the Vila instead of eating out all the time. The bedroom we had was a twin room and unfortunately because we were late to book we didn't have a lake view room but this didn't bother us too much. The room was spacious and had a sink (no soap though) with a mirror in - only negative thing with the room was that the bed squeaked every time you moved and so if you are a light sleeper then bring some ear plugs! We had a shared bathroom instead of an ensuite deal and so the toilet was one end of the corridor and the shower room was at the other. In our time being there, we never had a problem with using the shower/toilet when we wanted too and hence didn't find the shared bathroom thing a big deal. Without a doubt, the best thing about Vila Gorenka is the excellent location to the lake - within 2 minutes you are at the lake side!! This place currently has lots of negative reviews - but I couldn't recommend it highly enough, and when we return to Bled in the not so distant future, this place will definitely be our first port of call!

So the pros for this place were the lovely views. Its very close to the lake, we took the big room with the balcony view which was stunning.

However the surly landlord didn't give us any info on village or area. And I felt it was a bit pricey for a shared bathroom. It was also noisy at night as they take back packers who came in and walked around at all hours.

We knew that Vila Gorenka was on the budget end of the spectrum when we booked it, so we didn't go with high expectations. We had some trouble finding it initially, but once there, it was an easy walk to the lake and surrounding areas. The room we were in was a bit tired and mismatched, but it was clean and quiet. Our room even had a fabulous view of Lake Bled. When we decided we wanted to add an extra night, there was no trouble. All in all, this is a great value for non fussy travelers like us.

Owner probably is an eccentric character and all that, but not really service oriented. Nice place, still. Just pray and hope the management has a good day when you have to deal with them/him and approach with great respect...
