this was our fourth visit to Bohinj but our first to Hotel Kristal. and it was definately the best holiday yet. The hotal is spotless, the food is lovely and all the management and staff are friendly and very helpful. Our room was spotless and we were impressed by the soundproofing - no noises from adjourning rooms and corridors. The garden area is lovely and enabled me to photo a crested tit and other birds not seen in England. We are now saving up to visit again next year.

This is a relatively small family hotel which has a nice feel to it. It is 10 mins walk from the lake and our room had a lovely aspect to it - lots of bird song and quite a spectator sport watching their antics from the balcony. You order your evening meal at breakfast and take it in a relaxed manner and food was excellent. Large, covered outdoor extension to the bar where you can sit and drink, take afternoon tea etc. Staff efficient and helpful. Room adequate and really good shower.
On the down side, hotel is quite close to the road so there is some traffic noise in the morning. By far the worst thing is noise from adjacent rooms. Overhearing conversation isn't too bad but you can hear everything that is going on in the bathrooms/toilets in adjacent rooms and rooms above and below.

I really wanted to give this hotel 4 stars, but I couldn't honestly do it. It may be because it was low season and there were few guests. Upon arrival at the hotel the service was friendly, but after a 4 hour trip, it was very inconvenient to find no toilet paper in the room. The hostess was kind enough to offer lunch at 1430. The hotel is located a little too far from the lake. The view from the balcony was quite nice, but the exhaust from the kitchen was also there, so the fumes came directly into the room. The room was basic, with a tv and a hairdryer. Breakfeast was adequate, again few items because of the lack of guests, however, the juice dispenser only offered apple juice labeled as orange juice. Dinners were good enough, but they had very few wines from the wine list. Checkout was very trying as I couldn't find the hostess, after a search found her in the restaurant, but with computer problems it took more than 1/2 hour to get the final bill. Perhaps when high season begins and they have full staff, the expierence will be better.

it is going to take alot to beat Hotel Kristal, family feel hotel, that everybody feels, it brings people together and you leave feeling like every day was special. being able to come in after snowboarding and go and lay about in front of the fire with some sweet desert and smiley employees saying hello asking how you are, gives such a warm friendly feeling.
I personally hurt my knee while on holiday there and they could not do enough to help me out, also if Alenka saw anything that was even a tad under stand she was on to it making it ten times better than it was before..... Alenka was like a mum for each and every person. if i could have brought her home - i probably would have!
the room had great view, lovely warm showers throughout the day, and even small things like a cupboard in the corridor that held items that you may get short of; toilet rolls, blankets, fresh pillows etc. saving the hassle of asking for it.
i was the one on holiday and yet i wanted to help them out time to time by cleaning own room, taking dishes down keeping bathroom tidy etc it felt like they were just too nice i wanted to help them out and thats massive for me being a 24year old male tidying etc isn't exactly my sorta thing.
As we came as a group of 6 friends they set us up on our own joint table in the restaurant, and the three bedrooms all on the same floor right next to each other.
Would return here every year, was just the sort of holiday that the rest will now be compared to.

Room Tip: the front facing rooms have the car park area outside, my partner one morning heard a coach pull up and empty the new visitors, but i slept through this, and the back side just had trees. our side was a winner! and the mountains and sky are just so great to sit and watch while drinking hot chocolate wrapped up in a blanket on the balcony

Perfectly located in sleepy Bohinj! About 10 minute walk to the lake (and shop) and about a 10 minute bus ride to Mt Vogel! Skiing terrain is limited but still fun! Took some time out to walk around the lake to mix it up! Hotel Kristal is clean, personally thought the food was awesome and the hotel staff always happy to help! Our room was basic but comfortable enough! Bed and pillows were a let down, especially after a day skiing but the shower made up for it! Would stay again and recommend this place for people who like us aren't too fussed about going for nightlife (there's none)! I would also recommend taking a local bus to Bistrica to the Aquapark!
