Detailed Reviews

The hotel can be found at the entrance of the village, with generous private parking next to the building (free of charge for guests). The historic building is beautifully and thoughtfully restored, with a lot of attention to detail.

As you get in, you will find friendly and helpful reception staff; as they also cover the terrace bar, you might need to ring the bell.

The rooms are on the upper two floors and can be reached by an elevator. The spacious rooms with balcony feature a beautiful view onto the mountains (the only shortfall: no umbrellas / shading provided); for those staying in rooms that don’t have the view, there is a common terrace that features similar views (only one floor down…), and an extensive garden (a further floor down).

The rooms also feature a spacious wardrobe, a minibar, and even some sockets with USB outlets; they have no desk, but rather two armchairs and a small side / coffee table. The WiFi worked well in the room (less so on the terrace).

I wonder how many guests made a picture of the bathrooms, where again a lot of attention was paid to bring retro features alive – when was the last time you bathed in a free-standing bathtub that seems to be from the last century? The bathroom has space for two, and a whole cupboard for your toiletries (if you figure out how to open it…). A downside of the retro details: despite the curtain, showering in the bathtub (not comfortable anyway, with nothing to hold the shower head) leaves the room flooded.

The beds are comfortable (slept very well), with two pillow types; it is blissfully silent at night – you wake up to the sound of birds. Some of the windows feature roller shutters; the curtains on the others are heavy but translucent, so don’t fully keep the daylight out.

Good breakfast is included in the room charge, and served in the beautiful wintergarden; some homemade stuff is on offer, eggs and coffee made freshly for you.

The check-out is earlier than usual (10 am), but you can sit on the terrace until you leave.

The young lady at check-in was very welcoming and professional. The hotel’s common areas are beautiful.
Room was large and bed was comfortable. Air conditioning was not effective due to little air movement. We asked the staff and they said that the system’s fan only has one very low speed. As a result, the room does not get cool enough and it is stuffy. Breakfast is beautifully presented, and all the items are fresh. The gentleman serving in the breakfast room was very pleasant and efficient. Breakfast is not served until 8:00 which prevents guests from getting an early start. There is also a sign that states, “Only the first cup of coffee for breakfast is free.” Never in all my travels have I seen that type of statement in a hotel such as this. I’m not sure what management’s reasoning is behind that, especially considering the room prices charged.

We stayed for 3 nights and had a wonderful stay . Our room was superb, it is great to have the garden to sit out in ( if weather is good ! ) and breakfast lovely . The owners are so keen to please without being too overpowering and gave us much good advice. It is such an advantage being away from the busy town centre but only a 5 minute walk.

Everything about Hotel Dobra Vila is first class.
Our room was large, well-equipped and had mountain views from 2 sides of the room.
The terrace and gardens are beautiful. The weather was warm while we were in Bovec, and it was very nice to have a late-afternoon drink under an umbrella on the terrace, or in the shade of a tree in the garden, while enjoying stunning scenery.
Breakfast was served on the terrace and was excellent – scrambled eggs made to order, smoked salmon, a variety of top quality fresh fruit, very nice yoghurt as well as cereals, cheeses, cold meat, bread etc.
Finally, the staff were outstanding. The receptionist/bar attendant was delightful; she was helpful, friendly and informative. She also very kindly delivered my handbag to our room after I accidentally left it on the terrace. The manager was also friendly, efficient and very hospitable.
We highly recommend Dobra Vila.

It’s expensive hotel (EUR 260/ night) and we expected more, specifically service vise. Rooms are nice, but need renovation. The building is old, and there was strange smell in the room, which they try to cover with strong additive in air condition. There’s terrace but without privacy at all. Beds not bad, but for such type of hotel, you need to have more comfortable. Breakfast was okay.
No any help with your luggage. If you need room service, go down and take by your self. The biggest advantage of boutique hotel should be better and more devoted service. On our checking out, gentlemen were nice with us (have to admit), but no helps with luggage again. For such price, you should offer more.

This is a boutique hotel experience with all the extras. It’s a historical location with a unique vibe. Has a lot of posters that bring personality. The rooms are spacious and well-appointed without being fussy. The owners are accommodating, gracious, and proud of the experience they’ve built. It’s a great place to relax after taxing hikes on the way here. The wine and beer on the terrace are an added bonus to a perfect day.

Great host, excellent service and incredible breakfast. We stayed in a 4 person room which suited us well for the 2 nights we were in Bovec. Sitting outside for breakfast was really amazing right next to the garden. Airco did not succeed to cool
Down the upper section of our room where the kids were sleeping which was a pity. But apart from that, great stay.

We stayed three nights in this lovely hotel with our two teenagers and we all wish it could have been longer. The hotel was beautiful and clean and the host was top notch. We enjoyed drinking wine on the porch and playing cards or relaxing. It is a beautiful setting. Additionally, the breakfast was incredible. The rest of our trip every breakfast was compared and didn’t live up to it. We hope to be back some day.

First, even though it's on the main road through town it was VERY quiet all night. Also, service is very efficient and friendly. Our bed was a bit firm and we had a leaky pipe attached to the shower/tub. But as a boutique hotel things sometimes need adjusting. All in all, a decent place for a night.

We were staying here two nights. Eevrything was okay, just wifi was a bit bad, but maybe cause we were in the corner room. Breakfast was delicious, staff is really friendly, room was clean and comfy. So for sure good choice to come to Dobra Vila Bovec.

Hi there, looks like you are doing the itinerary we did! We drove to Piran and on the way visited the amazing caves at Postojna which I highly recommend. We stayed at the Hotel Tartini in Piran, think I reviewed it already, but will do so if I haven't, and although the position was right on the square, if you do stay there, ask for room on high floor and at the back. It wasn't quite my standard for what they charged. Have a great vacation, Slovenia is fab! Anna
