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 loved staying at Hotel Triglav in Lake Bled. We were there in winter and enjoyed strolls around the lake, ice skating, and all the other Lake Bled goodness. Hotel Triglav The hotel was built in 1906 and is filled with antiques and charm, but thoroughly modern in all the ways that matter. Being in the cozy hotel and gazing out at Lake Bled in the winter was something that will always stick with us. The restaurant was beyond delicious and the staff was super friendly- they were always looking for ways to make our stay even more enjoyable.
Staying at Hotel Triglav Bled is an amazing experience. From the warm welcome and friendly staff to the amazing view from the balcony, This hotel is the best place to stay for your trip to Lake Bled.
First things first, the restaurant is absolutely amazing. The included breakfast had an amazing selection of fresh meats, cheeses, homemade pastries, fruits, and Slovenian dishes, as well as eggs made to order and a selection of beverages. The fine-dining dinner was one of the best dinners I've had in my life, and for quite an affordable price.
The staff are extremely kind and helpful and offered me free coffee and tea in the afternoon when I was working away on my laptop in the lounge area. They gave us helpful tips and suggestions for places to visit around the area and were very accommodating. The hotel also has a pool, wine bar, and sauna area, as well as a massage service, which I did not get to test out.
The room itself was clean, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was well kept; it is everything you'd expect from a 4-star hotel. I will have to say that there was nothing extraordinary about the actual room itself, but the real gem is the view from the balcony. Definitely upgrade to a lake view, you won't regret it.
I'd highly suggest staying here as it is worth the value, the rooms have a great view and are clean, the staff is friendly, food is amazing, and the hotel is only a 5-minute walk to the lake. Definitely will be returning here the next time I visit Bled!
Booking and pre-arrival service
Booking was easy.
This hotel is located on the western side of lake Bled (opposite side of Bled town). It is by the side of the road that runs around the lake but situated 60-70 meters above the lake. There is a pathway to walk down to the lake (moderately difficulty climb). While the lake area is crowded, the hotel itself is quiet because of its elevation. The rooms facing the lake provide an excellent view of the lake.
Reception area was large as there are two adjoining rooms to the area. The hotel has 22 rooms spread over 3 floors.
The room we had was quite spacious & airy. It had windows facing the lake and a balcony with two chairs and a small table to sit out and enjoy the view of the lake. There is a nice foyer with the closets and drawers to store clothing. There is a small desk with sufficient lighting. There is also a sofa and a chest of drawers. They provide a small safety locker. The bathroom is spacious with a tub/shower. The sink is spacious with enough space for 2 people’s toiletries. It also had a clothes rack making it easier to dry underclothes overnight.
The breakfast area (which also serves as a restaurant) provides fantastic views of the lake. It is very elegant. There are the usual cold breakfast items. Did not see a coffee machine other than a drip coffee machine which provided quite a strong coffee. They will make eggs for you on request.
Outstanding. We would be remiss if we did not mention Ajda – she was a font of information and all her dining recommendations were spot on. She also provided detailed practical information about various sightseeing options around Bled.
1. We were not asked as a routine matter if we wanted a hot breakfast item. It was hit or miss. The first day we did not know they provided hot items. After that sometimes we were asked and sometimes we had to ask. 2. No body lotion was provided – when we asked, we were told that they do not! 3. Don’t know why the bar soaps are so small.
We highly recommend this hotel. Our overall rating is 4.75.
Thankfully the owners have resisted updating this charming hotel. It resonates originality and avoids the bland decor of modern hotels. Wonderful views of lake. Not easy to get to - a ten minute taxi ride from Bled centre. And a half hour taxi ride from Station.
Breakfast buffet a bit of a disapointment - poor selection. Service, restaurant all excellent
This is a charming hotel and my husband and I enjoyed our stay here tremendously. The location is great; it's a short walk to Lake Bled, and you can get a boat (be rowed across or row one yourself) to the island with the stately church on it. There is a really nice gift shop on the island and a restaurant, and it's very scenic and quiet. You can ring the bell inside the beautiful church and it peals all over the lake. It's fun to walk all around the lake, an easy walk. Not sure how long it took us; I didn't keep track of the time and also we stopped for lunch along the way and also to rest on benches and soak up the peace and serenity. Be sure to get the Kremna Rezine, cream cake dessert, a special local feature.
All the staff at the hotel Triglav were kind and efficient, especially Ida at the front desk. The hotel is modern inside, nice bathroom and shower, comfy beds. The restaurant is outstanding, absolutely gourmet food and a gorgeous view of Lake Bled and its island. It is a very popular place to eat so be sure to make a reservation in advance. Even though you are a guest at the hotel, you probably won't get a table without a reservation. Our dinner there was amazing. Excellent breakfast, with eggs cooked any way you like. Be sure to try the beet juice!
