See what they are saying about Hotel Stare

Dear friends at Hotel Stare,

I decided to write this review to share my experience. I'm returning to Hotel Stare every year, sometimes twice per year. I find there everything I want - beautiful nature, peaceful environment and friendly people. Perfect beds to sleep, beautiful view from the balconies, utility and delicious meals in restaurant or terrace.

Hotel Stare also have free Wi-Fi and TV in multipurpose room you can use any time. Every time I visit Bohinj, I find something interesting and worth seeing!

I would be glad to share information with anyone who is interested to stay there - write me on my private mail

All the best, Fran├žois from Burgundy, France

Dear Joze

I just wanted to thank you again for our wonderful stay with you. It really was a fantastic holiday for us and it all worked out very well.  The food you gave us was amazing please pass on our thanks to the chef, I am finding it rather hard having to cook for everyone now!

We really appreciated you letting us leave late and having a shower too I hope this did not inconvenience you too much.

We have fallen in love with Slovenia and hope to be back very soon.

With very best wishes to you for 2013.


My husband and I had a wonderful, 5- night stay at the Pension Stare at Lake Bohinj. Lake Bohinj is a beautiful area .... as close as you can get to a fairytale setting. Our lodging at Pension Stare was an extra prize to our visit. The lodging is quiet, peaceful and picture perfect, nestled against the mountains and surrounded by woods, forest, stream and valley. Lake Bohinj is within view; all that we had hoped for. It is very close to the many activities offered in the Triglav National Park. Joze Stare is a gracious, helpful and accommodating in-keeper along with family members that preserve a "family feel" to the lodging. The hot breakfasts and beautiful evening meals were outstanding and very reasonably priced. We were very happy with our room with a balcony. We wished that we could have stayed longer, but we will be back! We highly recommend this beautiful, quiet, and restful lodging.

"We came back to Penzion Stare after our visits in 2003 and 2006. And again, we had a wonderful time at the Bohinj Lake. The 'guestfriendliness'
(which is an odd translation of the German "Gastfreundschaft") of the Stare family is legendary: a warm atmosphere, clean rooms, excellent food and above all the simple quietness of this house in the middle of nature (mountains and lake). Thank you, Joze. We definitely come back..."


Stayed for a long week-end to attend a friends wedding as their photographer. The whole area is like a scene from Heidi or Grizzly Adams, absolutely breath taking regardless of which direction you look. Right in the centre of this piece of Middle Earth is the Penzion Stare. A blissfully simple hotel with no pretensions of grandeur, just a nice, clean place to rest your head after a busy day climbing mountains or boating on the nearby lake. Thank you to all the staff that made my stay fantastic!

Dear Jose,
I am writing to you after our visit to Pension Stare last week. I want to thank you for the wonderful stay my companion and i enjoyed with you. You worked really hard to supply all our needs and were extremely helpful with advice over fishing, walking and so on. You not only remembered to put flowers in my companion's room but also changed them mid week.
We enjoyed our rooms with balconies, from which every day we spied chamois on the high screes, and our meals on the patiol, particularly when we were late back from fishing.
Jose, you are a star!
Thank you so much.
Best wishes,

Dear Joze,

Apologies for the delayed message of thanks for our stay at Pension Stare. We stayed with you during mid/late October 2012 - it was a quiet time of year and the off season - but that suited us perfectly! Lake Bohinj is a truly beautiful place in Slovenia.

We just wanted to say thank you so much for your hospitality and also for looking after your guests so well - particularly as we were both not feeling well at all on our final morning and you allowed us to stay post-check out time with some fresh mint tea delivered to our room - which was very kind of you. We made it safely to Italy and had a great rest of our holiday in Northern Italy, with a visit to Venice.

We had a really great stay in Lake Bohinj and it was made all the more enjoyable from staying at Penison Stare.

Once again, thank you and we hope that 2013 is a great year for you.

Best regards, J and K
