We stayed in this hotel one week at te end of July 2009.
The hotel is located in the beginning of Ribcev Laz village, some 5-10 minutes walk from the lake, adjacent to access street. Whole Bohinj lake area is a tranquil place and the hotel fully fits to it, we also appreciated that it is located outside the Ribcev Laz center.
Our room was standard, oriented to small garden, view to mountains was shaded by grown trees. Room equipment was standard, matching 3-4* hotel. Everything was perfectly clean.
I can't share the previous reviewer experience, our bedding and towels were ok during whole stay.
Food was the only disappoitment for us. We stayed on half-board whole the time, and the food was good, sometimes better, sometimes worse, but in general not fitting 4* hotel. Once in a week there was a 'gala dinner', with more than 5 courses, all excellent, so they really know how to cook perfectly. Maybe it just confirms that the a-la-carte food could be much better than half-board - we will try it next time.
Overall, I would rate this hotel as very good 3* (which matches its price in comparison with others) and I would recommend it then. As there is not much other options at Bohinj lake which would suit us better, we would probably stay in Kristal again.
