The hotel is set in a picturesque location next to Bled railway station, which offers a magnificent view over Bled and the small island in the middle of the lake. Small groups are especially drawn to the hotel as it is situated on the peaceful side of the lake, which enables a more visually captivating and intimate congress experience. Before World War II the hotel went through its “golden age”, but the end of the war was the beginning of its decline. When the Rus family regained possession of it under the process of denationalization, they started out on an exemplary renovation that returned it to its former glory, to the romantic age and to an era when guests made their visit to Bled by railway.
In line with a philosophy of sustainability, you can practically reach the front door of the hotel by train. The hotel is located just 200 metres from the lake, 200 metres from the train station and a kilometre from the centre of Bled. Most guests, however, arrive at the hotel by car, by which mode of transport Bled is easily accessible. Even the central Slovenian airport is not too far away and offers a wide choice of flight connections. The hotel staff is also happy to arrange for a shuttle bus for guests that will take your group to the city centre or to one of the picturesque spots in the local area.
COLD STARTER - Architecture and aesthetics
With both its indoor and outdoor appearance, the hotel clearly reflects the existence of a centuries-old building. Its entire story is imbued in the restored pieces of stylish furniture and paintings. The building was renovated to its original style, so the atmosphere remains sophisticated and with a touch of history too, and with each room stylishly fitted for small conference groups. The building’s wine cellar is particularly interesting and they have also provided a delightful herbal-vegetable garden that could be part of a teambuilding programme.
WARM ENTRÉE - The staff and the culinary experience
The hotel staff is flexible and adapts to the desires and need of their guests, who can also be involved in the hotel’s cooking process, as they enable them to enjoy picking herbs and be part of the joint planning of meals. Thanks to the chef de cuisine, Uroš Štefalin, Restaurant 1906 has gained celebrity status. The level of quality is loyal to his successors, which is the main reason that the restaurant has become a meeting point for gourmets from around the world. An important part of the story is their excellent sommelier, Damir Salkić, who takes care of the excellent selection of wines. The restaurant is becoming more and more attractive and interesting to all culinary enthusiasts, as they host various events, culinary schools and days of seasonal delicacies.
