Hotel Triglav Bled
What We Love
- A three-night, half board stay in a luxury Lake Bled hotel – includes flights and private transfersLooking out towards Lake Bled’s ethereal island over a relaxing breakfast
- Tucking into innovative Slovenian dishes like buckwheat ravioli with buttermilk ice cream, in Restaurant 1906
- Trying a few labels from the hotel’s 150-strong, high-quality Slovenian wine collection
What To Know
- Some adjacent rooms have connecting doors
- The hotel is a 30-minute walk from the center of town
- Free WiFi is pretty good but it can be weak in rooms on the third floor
Idyllic Lake Bled views are a defining feature of Hotel Triglav. Breathe in fresh air and a scene worthy of a Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, featuring Lake Bled’s romantic island overlooked by lush green mountains.
The hotel’s interiors are adorned in antiques re-telling stories of times gone by, and they’ll even let you tinkle the ivories of their (almost) centenarian piano. Throughout the hotel’s rooms, bright, neutral hues are complemented by carefully chosen artworks and antique furniture. Yet modern conveniences are in no short supply. A TV, phone and Wi-Fi allow you to keep one eye on the real world. A Finnish sauna, relaxation room and reading room provide peaceful space to unwind.
At Restaurant 1906 – awarded five stars by the Slovenian national press – chef Jure Kordež prides himself on delivering innovative dishes with a touch of nostalgia. High quality seasonal and mostly local farm ingredients go into food inspired by the natural surroundings. Try the buckwheat ravioli with buttermilk ice cream for starters. Although it’s unlikely you’ll get through all 150 labels, the hotel’s professional sommelier, Damir Salkic will keep you right as you journey through a diverse landscape of local wines.
Don’t miss the chance to explore your alpine surroundings, including the ridiculously pretty Lake Bled and its ethereal island, Bled Castle and its jaw-dropping views, plus the untouched natural beauty of Triglav National Park.
How to Get There
We stayed three nights and had a wonderful time. We had booked a meal in the restaurant for our wedding anniversary and they linked this to our room booking, decorating the bed and the bathroom with rose petals which looked beautiful and was a real surprise. The meal was very special and the service from everyone at the hotel over the four days was excellent. The views from our balcony were spectacular. We used the pool and sauna every day and treated ourselves to our first ever massage which was amazing and so relaxing! We should also add that it was good to be in a hotel away from the busy centre of Bled. I think this is the best hotel we've ever stayed in.
I didn't want to leave! The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful as well as very professional. The hotel is in a beautiful, quiet location away from the main, busy area of Bled. The whole hotel is beautifully decorated. The views over the lake from our room and the restaurant were superb. Breakfast was delicious. I would also recommend eating dinner in the restaurant which was able to accommodate my vegetarianism and cook delicious options.
We arrived early for check in, but by the time we left to do some sightseeing to wait for our room to be ready, Sonia was able to get our laundry started, make dinner reservations at their restaurant and another one (Penzion Berc which was good one), and make massage appointments for us for the following day!! She was amazing!! We inquired of her suggestions for some additional travel plans we were making and was again very helpful. We enjoyed walking around Lake Bled, but also loved using their pool after the massages. We had the pool all to ourselves. Great views no matter what room you are in. We were also celebrating our anniversary and it was nice that they recognized it as well as tell the restaurant to recognize it as well.
