We recently returned from Bohinj having spent 11 nights at the Hotel Kristal in June 2014. This is our 8th stay in 9 years at hotel. Everybody, the owners and all the staff are so warm and friendly, nothing is too much trouble. The rooms are comfortable, spacious, and spotlessly clean. We always look forward to the food. The evening... More

I'm amazed people rate this hotel as excellent as I would rate it as a 2* hotel. The staff were unfriendly, the food poor. My husband had a turkey salad for lunch consisting of lettuce, chunks of turkey and grated carrot even though we asked for tomatoes and onions also. For the evening meal we had watery over salted soup... More

We stayed ten days at the hotel and really enjoyed our experience there. The owners were friendly and we felt we were experiencing Slovenian life in a family run hotel. The walks from the hotel were varied and well marked and you could choose a walk according to your ability!! The food at the hotel was traditional but we chose... More

We had stayed in Slovenian 4* hotels on the two previous nights and unfortunately the 4* Hotel Kristal was not a patch on them. The family-run hotel's good points are the friendly staff and the spacious bedrooms. However, the mostly buffet evening meal was at best average with a watery soup and a single school-meal style dessert, though the main... More

We had stayed at Kristal Hotel many times before and it is still just as good as it has always been. All the staff are very helpful and friendly. If you have any problems you only need to ask and they will be sorted. Thanks to everyone for making our holiday special.

As part of staying in Hotel Gasperin, they have a deal with Hotel Kristal to provide dinner for 10 EURO for a 3 course meal. Due to a dietary limitation I wasn't able to eat much from the menu but after explaining that to the waitress they put together a complete meal for me. That is service.

Besides some geomantic points at the garden, the strongest one is in the hotel. Sleeping in that room is just amazing and regenerating, specialy with use of excelent Ayurveda treatment. If you need to recharge your batteries, this is the right place to go. Tone

Just returned from our third ski holiday in Slovenia, and another fab stay at the Hotel Kristal. Not only is Bohinj one of the most beautiful places you could hope to visit, the hospitality provided by Alenka and her team is always superb. Nothing is too much trouble - the rooms are spacious and clean with regular laundry changes. There... More

We spent one week in Hotel Kristal for skiing holiday with the family. Every year we are coming back for summer and winter holidays, due to excellent service and beautiful nature around. This year they introduced Ayurveda treatments in the Hotel. After trying Ayurveda in India and other European countries, i can only tell that everyone can find true Ayurveda... More
