“Gold Medal Hotel!”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

I was greeted like an old friend by Herr Zimmermann and his staff on my third trip to the Kristberg.

It's a lovely old style mountain hotel, set back slightly from the main drag with lovely views up the slopes of Lech. An easy stroll to the telecabin or chairs up to Lech and Zurs.

The rooms are quiet and comfortable and the junior suites are spacious. The evening turndown service was a pleasant surprise meaning the room was always fresh and tidy.

I love the breakfast buffet and warm egg options and the evening salad bar is superb.

I read somewhere that someone complained about the staff being unfriendly ... I don't know what you'd done to upset them but in three years of visiting I have never been met by anything but friendly and helpful service.

One small issues ... being British I have become accustomed to smoke free bars and found the smoke a little difficult at times in the bar, I think they should invest in an extractor fan as I enjoy a few drinks after dinner and skiing but found this drove our crowd out.

Stayed there for a long weekend in january 2014, very nice hotel with a nice atmosphere, great staff, great food, nice rooms, great spa, and nice view. Highly recommendable! Easy access to the slopes and city, but still a bit drawn back, so you don't wake up at night because of the after ski party in the city.

Warm and friendly service. Great food and ambiance. A real home away from home. The formula is still the same and works very well so no need to tamper with it, just gentle tweaks. A perfectionist may ask to update the room entertainment system and some bedroom features, but these are really small details. The essential is there and is of a very high standard.

Hotel Kristberg is something out of the ordinairy. By the look of it, you would think its your average alpine hotel where the interior has pretty much stayed the same for the last 20 years. Mind you, its well maintained but could benefit from some updates in terms of new beds ( they are a bit on the hard side ) and ameneties ( I would recommend to bring your own shampoo and bodylotion )
But what sets this hotel apart is the friendly and easygoing atmosfere in the hotel. Owner Egon Zimmermann ( former world champion and olympic champion for Austria ) is ever present and always ready to tell you a good story from his eventful life. And hotel manager Michael Zimmermann is doing everything he can to make your stay as great as possible. And they both suceed! The food is great and the new chef definatly knows how to make a good Sacher torte.
Prepare for a short walk to the lift, its good for you! I absolutely love the place and the people, and wouldn`t want to stay any where else in Lech.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with Krigerhorn view or village view.

The perfect getaway for the ski season. This beautiful hotel offers excellent service, they are always smiling and helpful. The food is excellent too, make sure you try the Wiener Schnitzel. Spa and great yoga classes are available too. It was perfect for me since I'm not a ski pro and after 2 days on the slopes I definitelly enjoyed a day recovering at the spa. I highly recommend it!

I have stayed at Hotel Kristberg a couple of times and and look forward to my next visit. The atmosphere is very cosy and the customer service is top notch. I like to play cards by the fire place after a day of skiing with a warm beverage. Egon and Michael are very friendly and always exceed our expectations. There are many places to ski closer to home but I travel a long distance (Midwest USA) to stay here because it is quaint and I am never let down.
