What To Know

- 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 little hotel is situated at the opposite end of Lake Bled from the center of town. It's full of old school charm, luxury and personality. The staff are very professional and the rooms are spacious and clean. We had a stunning view from our room of Lake Bled and the town. The best part of this hotel is the INCREDIBLE restaurant that is attached to it (Restavracija 1906). The worst part was the shower... terrible water pressed and just a small hand held spigot that was attached to a metal pole. The beds were very comfortable and topped with feather duvets. It was very quite and relaxing! I would recommend staying here but be prepared for a 30 minute walk to the center of town! (It is very scenic and safe!)
This was a great hotel. The view from the room was loverly and the room itself clean and well maintained. The hotel is oldy worldy but this leads to a certain charm and we really enjoyed the art on the stairs. The car park is quite small but we found a space every day no probs. The staff made our stay and were exceptional, nothing was too much trouble and they were always helpful and friendly. We only planned to eat one night in the hotel restaurant but the food was so good we opted to eat there again on our last night. A great stay and we will definitely return.
The staff here are wonderful especially the lady on reception who helped us so much with bus and train timetables to Bohinj. The view of the lake from our room was lovely. The hotel is in a very quiet part of the lake and out of season there is nowhere else to eat. The food is superb but very pricey. We spent 105 euros for two of us with a glass of wine each. We were not shown a wine list the waiter said he would choose a bottle. We stopped him as we did not know the price and went for a glass each. Still very expensive. The room was comfortable and quiet and this hotel is a real haven of tranquility but if you want to eat out in the evening you should stay in the main part of the lake.
