Had a perfectly pleasant stay at Hotel Kristal. It was immaculately clean and the staff were welcoming, helpful and friendly. Our room was spacious and light with a balcony. Breakfast was fine- really nothing special. The location is good, a 500 metre walk from Lake Bohinj. The hotel is on a busy road and there is no pavement for a... More

Spent 3 nights at the Kristal, staying half board. The room was clean and comfortable, the food was a bit basic and didn't vary much, but was well cooked. The a la carte menu looked good. The staff were friendly. It's a few hundred meters from the lake which makes it quieter than many hotels on the main road, but... More

As other reviewers say, 4* is stretching things! It is immaculately clean and fairly utility in the bedrooms. It was blisteringly hot when we stayed- without a fan, night-time was very uncomfortable, no A/C in these parts. The end was comfortable though. We were wary of the breakfast options after reading some reviews, but it was OK. Finding good Slovenian... More

We were in Bohinj during the Summer for a bit of hiking and relaxing. This hotel is not what I would consider to be a four star hotel, but it would be equivalent to a perfectly decent three star in Western Europe. The room was clean, relatively modern, bathroom was good (shower only), and we had a little balcony which... More

A little out of town on a busy road but manageable. Staff are not the friendliest but not rude either. Room had no AC which made for a sweaty night after 40C that day and this wasn't helped by a lumpy pillow. Has a nice outdoor massage area but we didn't try it so not sure about the quality. The...

We stayed here for the second time this year on a Motorcycle trip of Europe. The rooms were overall good, as was the parking, food, cleanliness and politeness of all the staff. However, this hotel is very unorganised. When we arrived the owner paniced and thought she didn't have a booking (she did but apparently it confused her we didn't... More

This is a smallish family run hotel situated within 5 minutes walk of lake Bohinj. My wife & I booked this return trip to the lake after a 35 year gap and I can honestly say that the area hasn't changed at all, still very beautiful. It was Yugoslavia in 1980 and now Slovenia in May 2015. The hotel is... More

The hotel is in a quiet location, set back from the main road, about 10 minutes walk from the lake (there is a footpath which avoids the road - just take the first turning immediately past the bus stop). The hotel is well equipped (there is free Wi-Fi, but you may have to use a lounge to get a decent... More

Great area if you're into walking, cycling. No issues with the hotel but a 4 star rating a touch high. Problem is hotel position being 700metres from the lake on a busy road with no footpath over the last 400 meters, Walking along the road uncomfortable as its narrow and fairly busy.

Behind is not to be missed and I'd certainly never stay anywhere else but Hotel Kristal. Incredibly sweet, big-hearted staff (family owned), genuine and accommodating. Beautiful balcony. Lovely food. Do not stay anywhere else!
