The 13th-century castle of Otočec has had an eventful history. Noblemen, church leaders and the Knights of Otočec took up residence there, knight Janez Sonce bought the building in 1629. After the castle was burned down by partisans in 1942, it was completely restored, later opening its doors as Slovenia's top hotel.
Wake up delightfully to the sound of birds singing in the background in the rooms of the Otočec Castle Hotel. These are extremely spacious and impeccably furnished with their simple charms and smart touches. The rooms possess an outstanding combination between the past and the conveniences of future.
We are total fans of the Senior Suite, which is perfect for families with children owing to its two separate bedrooms.
