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

Stayed in February for a ski holiday. Amazing people who cannot do enough for you. 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...

This hotel is very basic and does not warrant 4 stars. It is rather a 3 star hotel. The room was clean but had only the essentials, although the bed was comfy. Staff were hard to find most of the day with phone calls to reception going unanswered and visits to reception finding no one around. The location is about... More

We stayed there two times in last year and we were very satisfied. The staff are very friendly and helping. The view from balcony is amazing (Triglav :-)), rooms nice and clean. Maybe a little more choises of food for breakfast wiil be be better. The location not far from the lake, you can walk around it and just enjoy.

A hotel with a homey feeling, nice staff, excellent food and on the perfect location - not directly next to the lake, so it's quiet, but close enough (about 400m) to walk there all the time. They also offer massages and sauna and special ayurvedic treatments, so the activities are quite rich and health oriented
