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 had a great stay at Hotel Triglav. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location is great as it’s a short walk to lake bled.
The restaurant is very good and serves lovely food, I would recommend the duck and the chocolate mousse dessert!
Front desk staff extremely personable and accommodating.
Hotel is perched above turquoise lake with view of island. Room had large balcony with view. Mesh safety panels blocked view when seated on chairs. Would be nice to have stools to see over rail or replace panels with glass.
Room and bathroom nicely appointed. Bed a bit hard for my wife’s taste.
Restaurant may be fully booked, so you need to book in advance. We were shut out, but they provided full menu as room service. It was excellent. Other food options are a 15 minute walk or trip to town.
Re: Bled. Based only on single 1 night trip, I’d say avoid it on a sunny weekend day in high season. Sights are nice but traffic is choked.
We popped into Hotel Triglav for breakfast as our own accommodation did not provide it. They were in the process of tidying up but quickly set everything back up again for us and insisted it was no trouble. The food itself was lovely but the views from our table were simply out of this world. Staff bent over backwards and were attentive without making us feel rushed. 10/10!
The hotel is located above Lake Bled, with stunning views to the island and church. It’s rather a steep walk up from the lake level, but it’s an easy 30 minute walk to Bled itself.
The rooms are clean and comfortable, get one with a balcony for the view!
The hotel restaurant produces food of the highest quality, and there is a wide selection of Slovenian wines for every palate.
Breakfast is a buffet, with a wide variety of produce. Egg dishes - omelettes, etc - are cooked to order. The staff are all extremely helpful and speak several languages. When we stayed, they couldn’t have been more helpful and are a credit to the hotel.
We’d love to come back and stay here again.
The location is great with views over lake Bled. A nice walk into the town of Bled but be aware that its a very steep walk back up from the Lake which may not suit everyone.
The hotel itself is tired and in need up updating, i really dont expect to pay this price range and have to shower using a hand held shower attachment . The hairdryer was terrible and not suitable for anyone with longer hair as it overheats.
Another big disappointment was the balcony, we went for a higher priced room so we could sit and enjoy the views in the evening but the level of the balcony means that you cannot see over the top while seated in the chairs.
In the room, there was a blind on one window which could only be closed by standing on a chair and there was no curtain other than nylon see through on the main window.
The breakfast was very poor quality with the most basic fruit such as melon and grapes and no options for any low fat milks or yoghurts to accomodate dietary restrictions. Hot food is limited to eggs.
Overall, not worth the price bracket and there are far nicer places to stay in Lake Bled
