Located in a very interesting and convenient spot near the world famous Plitvice National Park, Lyra Hotel Plitvice is rated as one of the best hotels in the area. The hotel is only a short drive away from Plitvice National Park. If you are visiting Croatia, a visit to this National Park is a must do! It is one of the most beautiful nature parks I have ever seen. Walking around in the park is like walking in paradise. The water features are mind blowing! Also good to know is the nearby military underground airport Zeljava. This Airbase is only a few kilometers away from the hotel and we were pretty impressed.
Now let’s go back to the hotel. Lyra is a brand new four star hotel and offers only the best of the best! From the moment we arrived untill the time we left, we felt great. The staff is just wonderful and will do their upmost best to serve you in a fantastic way.
Upon arrival, everything is explained in a friendly yet professional way. Good to know: complimentary parking here!
The lobby is stylish and trendy decorated. There are several cozy sitting areas where it is great to hang out and talk about the everyday’s life. Our keys were handed in just seconds before we headed to our wonderful room. Speaking of rooms, there are only 58 rooms at Lyra Hotel Plitvice which is why they can provide such personal service. Each staff member I met was friendly and each request was dealt with professionalism.
The superior room we stayed in had a great size, trendy décor and is comfortably appointed. I enjoy the daylight and appreciated the floor to ceiling windows. Standard amenities are a Nespresso coffee machine, HD television and a safe. The small couch is a treat after walking all day long in Plitvice. The in room telescope was a fun feature which I loved very much!
The bathroom had a nice sized shower, single sink and toilet. Fancy Rituals toiletries are provided in each room. Every spot in our room was spotlesly clean.
We were booked in half board. The food here is delicious! Did you know that the hotel invited elderly ladies from the village who cooked for the first visitors to the park to teach the hotel’s chefs how to prepare the traditional local dishes. Again, the service provided was top notch!
The next morning we had breakfast in the restaurant downstairs. Usually, it is a buffet style breakfast offering only fresh products. The time we were there it was during Covid and that’s why they served an à la carte breakfast at that time. We sat down and the very accommodating staff immediately wished us a very good morning. The mini buffet they offered at each guest truly was delicious and I appreciated the mix of sweet and salt. There’s just something for everybody.
There’s a lot to do here so even on a rainy day, you won’t get bored. The fitness center is fully equiped. If you are not into working out, the wellness area with sauna and a spa menu is something for you. Especially after a day of walking in Plitvice, this is a treat!
Our stay at Lyra Hotel Plitvice was wonderful and I can easily understand why it is rated as one of the best hotels in the area. From the personal approach to the comfortable rooms and amazing breakfast, Lyra Hotel Plitvice is top notch and I highly recommend to stay at this hotel when you are in the area of Plitvice national park. The up to date design and accommodating staff will please anyone!
