Good hotel, great service, amazing location
My wife and I stayed at Hotel Degenija for 1 night in September. Would I recommend this hotel to a friend? Yes. Would I stay here again knowing what I know? Yes. We stayed here so we could hit Plitvice Lakes National Park when it opened at 7:00am. The room was OK. The staff was very helpful. Staying at the hotel also allows you to make a reservation at the Degenija Restaurant. It is 5 km from Gate 1 of the park.

It was a excellent stay. When we arrived, the hotel staff informed us that the bar was closed that night because there were not enough guests due to it being the end of the tourist season. But we asked if we could sit in it and drink a bottle of wine we brought to toast that one couple among us was celebrating their wedding anniversary. They opened the bar and provided glasses and lighting, it made for a great evening, thanks.

We had a great stay at this hotel. Location to Plitvice lakes was very close, staff was very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable and assisted with multiple park questions. The food at breakfast as well as at the restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
