The Hotel With The Protocol Spirit
Within the Brdo protocol area and adjoining the Brdo Castle, a nicely decorated park with ponds, sports fields, and the Brdo hippodrome, you will find Hotel Brdo along with its restaurant. The hotel is located in one of the most beautiful and carefully landscaped Slovenian protocol sites, which is an extremely popular venue for congress events of the highest level. In addition to its diverse offer a modern convention centre, which is considered one of the best in Slovenia, is sure to leave an impression. Forests, lakes, pieces of sculpture and also the latest addition to the football centre of Slovenia are all stretched out over more than four hundred hectares. The ensemble forms an extremely diverse congress and incentive offer, which is without rival in Slovenia.
The advantage of Hotel Brdo is the proximity of Ljubljana Airport, which is located just 10 kilometres from the hotel, and the city, being 30 kilometres away from Ljubljana. To get to the hotel you will be dependent on your own transport by car, but for hotel guests, a free car park near the hotel is at their disposal.
As a hotel guest, you will be enchanted by the fact that the park is entirely closed to traffic, so your recreation in one of the most beautiful Slovenian parks will be unsullied by traffic noise or pollution.
COLD APPETIZER - Architecture and Aesthetics
The architecture of Hotel Brdo is not impressive or heralded, unlike for the nearby convention centre. It is built in a functional architectural style that prevailed in the 1970s, set in a space with a strong identity and framed by the surrounding mountains and pattern of settlement, which the designers tried to follow. The building is perfectly maintained and shows no traces of the ravages of time. The interior of the hotel is much more innovative, epitomised by the entrance hall and pleasant reception following renovation. This fresh new space invites you to stop for a coffee and is largely credited with making a good first impression, which then continues in the rooms and the other areas of the hotel.
WARM APPETIZER - Staff and catering
The hotel staff is highly qualified and master their work in a way that befits a protocol facility. The breakfast is rich and varied with an impressive selection of different breads and rolls.
The most surprising thing of all is the restaurant, which reflects a high level of cuisine at the property. The basis of the cuisine is strongly linked to both the Gorenjska region and the seasons (game, trout, dumplings), although you can also find some dishes from the broader Slovenian area (Piran sea bass, prosciutto, stuffed dumplings). The wine list has the best Slovenian wines at very reasonable prices and you will find all of them there – from Brda, Vipava, Karst, Dolenjska and Styria. A superior wine list!
MAIN DISH - Conference hotel service
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but for guests used to modern design hotels, they are possibly a bit outdated. A more pampered guest might wish for slightly more luxurious toiletries and some more hotel gadgets. However, the rooms are suited to the hotel category and particularly the structure of the guests, among which congress guests dominate.
A strong part of the offer is the four conference halls, two meeting rooms, and a VIP lounge. In the vicinity of Hotel Brdo, there is the modern Congress Centre Brdo, which with about 9,000m2 of usable space can host all kinds of events.
DESSERT – The extras
Brdo Congress Centre nicely rounds off the offer of the hotel facilities and is considered as one of the most modern convention centres in the region. It received a certificate of excellence in 2014 and was ranked one of the three best conference centres in South-Eastern Europe, selected by the editorial board of Kongres magazine.
FLOP – NEGATIVE SURPRISES
Public transport to the hotel is not available – you get there with your own transport or a taxi.
TOP – POSITIVE SURPRISES
The friendliness and professionalism of the staff will ensure your well-being with a friendly smile.
