We had another wonderful skiing holiday at Vogel and our 4th stay at Hotel Kristal. We love the food, it is all homemade with something for every taste. We love the fresh trout and moussaka, while our kids are very picky, but there is always something one the menu they like - either pasta, roast chicken or chicken nuggets. The...

The room we stayed in was a good size, immaculately clean every day, comfortable bed, good shower and had a fridge and safe. There were 4 main course options for dinner each evening including a vegetarian option and every meal was delicious. All the staff were very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We would highly recommend this hotel and...

It was overall an amazing experience and an amazing evening for me and my girlfriend. The quality of the food and the whole service were far beyond the four-star hotel. I cannot remember the last time i ate such delicious food. They made the evening really special for us, serving our food in a separate "Hunter's" room, lighted up lots...

Hotel Kristal is a beautiful family run hotel in a great location about 10 mins walk from stunning Lake Bohinj. The rooms were immaculate all week and the Hotel manager, Alenka, and her family were fantastic hosts and made us feel at home throughout the duration of our stay. The food here is traditionally Slovenian and was very very tasty....

We stayed in Hotel Kristal and Bohinj in particular as we wanted to visit somewhere quieter in Slovenia. Little did we know how beautiful the area was, and in our opinion, much nicer than Bled, mostly as the mountains are more dramatic and the region far less developed. In terms of the hotel, it was a wonderful experience. The rooms...

We spent one night at the hotel. It is a 4 star hotel but overall it should be a 3 star hotel. The room was ok, spacious, more or less clean enough. The hairdryer was not working, the heathing was low and they gave us separate electric fan heater. The restaurant was ok but a bit below the standard for...

This is a lovely little family run hotel in a beautiful location, just a short walk from lake Bohinj with its many Watersports and mountain trails. The rooms are quite basic, but it's clean, and he staff were so friendly and helpful... Oh and I had the best massage of my life there. Seriously if you stay here, book yourself...

The perfect balance between high-quality hotel-style amenities and a cozy, home feeling you get from the staff (family-owned hotel). The staff are hard working people who will not only do their job impeccably, but also do their best to fulfill any request you may have. Location is very good - not too far from the lake, but in a rather...

Our room was nice and comfortable, although we did have to ask for a fan to counteract the heat. Breakfast was basic; I would have liked a bit more variety of fruit for example. My friend celebrated her birthday and we had cake at the restaurant. It was delicious. We also had dinner one night and both enjoyed it. Note...
