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!

We stayed for a week on a budget ski trip to Slovenua and were delighted with the hotel. Staff were friendly and made every effort to make our stay easy, food was excellent. Breakfast was typical European continental option and the evening meals were varied and delicious each night. Rooms are large but basic, all that is required for an... More

Hotel Kristal is a small friendly hotel near Lake Bohinj. The rooms are of adequate size, very clean and well maintained. The hotel restaurant is very solid and offers enough variety of foods to suit all tastes. Above all, this hotel has staff which is incredibly friendly and helpful and has no problem to accommodate almost any wishes of guests.... More

The rooms are spacious and very clean, the food is freshly prepared and authentic so you really get a taste of the country you are staying in. The surrounding area is very picturesque and worth exploring. I would definitely recommend this family run hotel you... More

After a few years, we enjoyed at family hotel "Kristal" again. It was a great weekend during "Kravlji bal 2014". Room was nice, large and very clean. Food was excellent as well as service. Will come back at next opportunity.

Another fantastic holiday at the Kristal Hotel. The food was excellent especially the soups.We found the Bohinj card at 5 euros each a real money saver. We travelled to Ljubljnana on the service bus all free with your card. A visit to the chocolate shop / Cafe is well worth it. It is in the village of Bohinjska Cesnjica, about... More

We have just returned from a great holiday to Slovenia and the Hotel Kristal was the perfect base for exploring the area around Lake Bohinj. The hotel itself was a lovely family run hotel and everybody there was very friendly and their English was excellent, which made going to a smaller country very easy. The room was very good and...
