What other guests say about Herbal Rooms?
You can stay in a hotel anywhere, but for a truly local experience, it is places like this that make the difference. Rather than just meeting a front-desk receptionist at a hotel, you get the opportunity to spend time with a local family.

Great warmth and hospitality here! I am so glad to choose these rooms as my stay in Plave, slovenia. The rooms are exceedingly comfortable filled with potpurri and herbs in mattress and pillows
I enjoyed Herbal House for an extended stay ( one summer month) because of all the options open to me: I could relax comfortably alongside the lush garden and read, I could catch a local train and visit lakes Bled and Bohinj, I could take easy or moderately difficult hikes into dense forests and feel one with the sounds of nature and I could savor delicious cuisine at the near by regional eateries.
