Friendly hotel in a quiet part of town
Highly recommended, friendly host, excellent (optional) dinners at the hotel, for example four course menu with "Knoblauchsuppe, Medaillon vom Rind, Strukli, Eiscreme, und Schnapps" (we mostly spoke German with our host, but she was also well versed in the English language)
Unique Quality: We had a large room on the ground floor with good beds, couch, shower, free WiFi. Conveniently situated outside the town itself in quiet rural setting. Large garden with deck chairs and gazebo. Free use of mountain bikes.
Directions: South-west of the town of Bled itself. Be sure to check a town map prior to your arrival.
Fabuluos 10 days stay in April
We stayed in Alp Penzion with our two daughters from March 31st to April 10th. It turned out that Bled was a perfect location for our day and half-day trips to Bohinj lake, Lujbliana, Postojna Jama, Piran and Triest. We had two spacious rooms with balconies, en-suite bathrooms and a small connecting hall. Our rooms were clean, updated and made-up every day. The bathrooms were also modern and neat. There was fast wi-fi in the rooms, nice-looking breakfast area and beautiful surroundings. Unfortunately it was low season, and the Penzion hasn't served dinner yet , but the breakfast was good and filling. The Alp Penzion is located a little bit out of Bled's centre, it took us 15 minutes of strolling to get to the lake and 10 mitues to get to the Ziva swimming pools (it is really quite near, bearing in mind that our 6 year old daughter is a slow walker). To me, the location was really great, because the main road of Bled is a bit loud and the night life of the town centre can be quite a disturbance. We loved the place and the warm hospitality of the owners. If we come again, we will definetely choose the Alp Pezion for stay.
Unique Quality: Yes, there is an extra attraction to this place - it is the Essence Wellness and Spa centre just door to door with the Alp Penzion. It is brand new, has modern spacious premises and offers full range of body and facial treatment. We enjoyed coming to their VIP-sauna twice and pampered ourselves with Turkish and Finnish saunas, hot-water jacuzzi outdoor and a compliment bottle of sparkling wine with fruit. Then we tried full-body massage with herbs and warm oil and it's worthed every single minute of it. The face care session was really impeccable.
The quality to money ratio was above my expectations. I do recommend everyone to plan and reserve the massage and cosmetic treatments in advance, because the demand for this welness centre's services is high.
Worth the walk
First let me say that Alp Penzion is about a 15 minute walk from the lake. If you are looking for a place to relax away from town, and don't mind a little scenic stroll then this is a great alternative. The rooms in this place are updated clean and spacious. The towels were clean and of good quality plus our room was freshened up every day. The staff was very helpful and there computer in the lobby for free internet, that you can use for research.
The hotel also rents bikes, has tennis courts, and sports an on site mini spa type thing (My wife went and was very pleased). The best part for me was lots of outdoor relaxing area with a server yourself (honor system) bar stocked with on tap beer and wine. Each night the Penzion serves a full 3 course dinner, which in opinion was fantastic.
Unique Quality: Very tranquil setting, free loner bikes, tennis courts, summer barbecue grill, wine-tasting, and mini-spa.
Directions: 15 minute walk from lake bled
Nice & quite hotel
The Alp Penzion is situated bit outside of Bled. It’s a quite place in a street where is only one other house. From the pension it’s 10 to 15 minute to the centre and the lake, so you can walk there (and save the parking fees…). They have different type of rooms, we had a suite with a separate living room. Our rooms were quite big and for a reasonable rate. Breakfast is from 7:30 to 10:00 and if the weather is fine you can sit outside on the terrace, very nice! They offered a good choice for breakfast and you also could get half-board. Also there’s a huge garden and tennis court.
