This is a Trusted Review. Why?

My husband and I typically stay in hotels, not hostels, however, we decided to give this one a try since we were only going to be in Bled for one night.

Make sure you take your printed directions with you. Our GPS could not pick up the hostel's street name, but a quick call to Andrea got us squared away. Andrea is a very gracious hostess; very kind and well informed, not to mention organized.

Our room was on the third floor: a private double room with its own bath. It was very large and had a small living room area in addition to a small refrigerator. The room was clean and comfortable although there was a bit of a "closed up" smell to the room. But that was easily resolved once we opened the windows and let in some fresh air. The beds were quite firm and we were a little apprehensive that they wouldn't provide a good night's sleep, but they were just fine and we slept beautifully. The room was also equipped with a fan which helped a great deal as it was a hot July night. Our bathroom was quite large and had a very nice-sized shower with good pressure. Towels were provided.

In as much as we were on a road trip, we had lots of food that we brought with us so the communal kitchen came in very handy. The only negative is that the stove/oven in the kitchen was not working so we ate our dinner cold. To be fair, Andrea invited us to bring anything that needed to be warmed to her house (next door). There was a big community refrigerator as well that we made good use of.

As for Bled, what a beautiful little community. The architecture of the homes is diverse which I found appealing. Coming from Bavaria where it seems every house looks the same, I really appreciated the diversity. One definitely needs to plan on at least two full days and nights in Bled. As another reviewer said, Bled Castle is a mere 15 minute walk (but it is steep) from Andrea's house. If you're visiting during the summer months, you'll definitely want to do this early in the morning when the sun's not so hot! There are beautiful views from Bled Castle.

We also enjoyed Bled Creme Cake (Kremsnita) at the Park Cafe restaurant (look for the Panorama Restaurant sign to the right of the Casino entrance). Go at sundown and sit on the comfy cocktail chairs facing the lake. You'll catch a spectacular view of Bled Castle lit up with green glowing lights along the stone foundation and white ones outlining the castle roof line.

Although we didn't get to do this, we saw a tour group taking a torch-lit walk around Lake Bled that night. It was beautiful to see the lights around the lake at night and I'm sure when we next visit Bled, we'll work that into our itinerary. If we hadn't bee so short on time, I would have loved to stay another day.

As an aside, the Mercator, the local grocery, (one of which is located near the island end of the lake and the other at the opposite end on the main street) has some very tasty and very inexpensive wines. For less than three euros you can get a Namizno red or a Laski Rizling.

We enjoyed our stay and most certainly feel that Andrea's House is a great value for the money!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed at Andrea's home in early September for one night only as a stopover.

After our stay we wished we had organised 3 or 4 nights there!

Andrea was so welcoming and a very good host. She knows all the best places to see and eat.

The location was fantastic. Only a short 5 minute stroll to Lake Bled and close to the restaurants etc. The castle is probably a 10 minute walk to the track (next to the lake) and then a 15 minute walk up the hill. Definitely something you should do and not too difficult at all.

The place itself was very comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom apartment and a 4 bedroom apartment. Everything was extremely clean and comfortable. We had a fridge and little kitchen (which unfortunately we didnt really get to use as we only had 1 night!).

The parking is very safe and secure in Andrea's driveway and the place has a very relaxed feel to it.

The price was very reasonable for the value we got and we would recommend this place to anyone (whether traveling as a couple, single or as a group). We had 6 people and the place was perfect for our group.

I am an experienced traveller and would rate this as one of the best places we have stayed anywhere in the world. I would suggest you need at least 3 nights to really make the most of Lake Bled. What a beautiful place it is!

Cheers,

David

We found Andrea very welcoming and concerned about the comfort of her guests. Was in a lovely quiet area although we did have trouble finding it as it's down a tiny road with a roadsign which was obscured at one end. The area was safe and very handy to everything - you could walk to the town centre. The room was clean and comfortable - very small bathroom but for the price you can't expect too much. Would stay again.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We have just come back from spending 3 days at Andrea's Home. Like Bled itself, and the surrounds, we would definitely come back to Andrea's. The room was fab as was all of the facilities in the house. What was particularly good was the help that Andrea and her husband gave in planning our stay. They gave maps, suggested itineries, restaurants, swimming points ... all of which were perfect and gratefully received. Moreover, Andrea also sorted out our transport back to Lub airport (a local courier service for 13 euros per person). Good value, not least given the prices of some Bled hotels. Really, just perfect.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Andrea was so welcoming and the location was perfect - a quiet street just a few minutes walk from the lake.

Andrea picked us up from the station and gave us loads of advice about where to go and what to see. It is easy to rent bikes and head out to gorges, waterfalls and amazing forest.

The apartment was excellent - with a powerful shower, comfy beds, TV, and a great little private garden area.

We had a brilliant stay here, and it provided an excellent base for exploring the surrounding area.
