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
This is the second time we have spent with friends on a three night half board ,once again they haven't let us down. Rooms excellent with balcony view of the church on the lake, staff very friendly and helpful nothing too much for them to make your stay enjoyable. The food is worth a 5 star plus rating the duck and steak were the best I have eaten. The only down side is the walk back from the lake up hill all the way, but we managed at the age of 72plus. We will return for a reunion of our friends. Thank you for a fabulous stay Keith p
We stayed there for 3 nights and could enjoy a wonderful stay. Very kind staff at reception and restaurant, very good facilities especially the swimming pool and the sauna, wonderful view above the lake and its island.
Staff always smiling and nothing is too much trouble, made us all feel welcome and at home. The location is stunning we were lucky to have balconies overlooking the beautiful Lake Bled, the rooms are of a good size, comfortable and exceptionally clean.
The restaurant provided a superb breakfast and the evening meals were of a very high professional standard, the staff always explaining the meal and contents and happy to oblige with any of our preferences, the fillet beef was the best we'd had so well done.
As the location is quite high there is an uphill walk from the lake, but we in our early seventies managed it daily.
We will return as we don't think we'd better this hotel, so thank you to Triglav.
We will return
Built in 1906 (and appeared newly refurbished and decorated in February 2019) this is a great hotel. The room was very clean, well decorated, warm and comfortable. Views of the lake and mountains were amazing. The food was really great. And it has a swimming pool and sauna. Staff were great: very welcoming and helpful. We walked the 30 minutes along the beautiful lakeside on several occasions into Bled, but as we were half-board and did not need to go out in the evenings. The 'Restaurant 1906' was amazing with beautifully prepared and presented food. Very highly recommended.
Really helpful staff, lovely restaurant and nice little spa area. Would recommend for a relaxing break. Be aware hotel is about 25min walk from centre of Bled and need to negotiate a steep path. Views from lake view rooms and dining room are sublime.
