Reviewed 19 March 2013

We stayed one week at the Hotel Kristiania in Lech in March 2013. It was a memorable experience, excellent accommodation, first class food and truly helpful staff.
Although it was only a very short walk to the ski slopes, the hotel van was always there to transport us.

Excellent location and very warm and cozy establishment. Indeed family friendly, but needs some more space for kids.
Dominique the hotel manager, together with his "orchestra", were outperforming themselves daily, despite some unavoidable delays.
Excellent food together with a thorough, but quite overpiced wine list which needs ( together with the bar and extras' pricing) some serious reconsideration to that end.
Keep up!!

Last year we were impressed with the service and the offering but the nick-nacks in the room were a big turnoff. After reviewing the property and reading the owner's response we decided to return for dinner. And we we're disappointed. Our gang of 6 held court in the Fondue Room. It was a classic Austrian Alps experience. The wine list of Austrian specialties was excellent. The ambiance and the service were wonderful. All is forgiven. You've converted us into regular returning customers. Thanks for keeping your standards high and your hospitality world class. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Get a room facing east.

This small, family owned hotel is located 10 minutes away from the center of town. If you come at the height of a high season, when all the slopes are overcrowded and it is hard to get a table for lunch on the slopes, you would feel a real pleasure staying away from the crowd at this very private hotel. You almost feel that there are hardly any other guests and, most importantly, you do not need to wait for service. What makes this hotel special is attention to details - a nice children bathrobe and tiny slippers with pattern matching the children's linen, bedside linen mat, fine china and cutlery in the restaurant, a welcome champagne and fruit basket, complimentary mini bar and fine linen facial towels, a gel mask for tired eyes and always fresh fruit in the lounge area. The rooms are always being serviced while you are having meals and there must be coordination for that since you never see housekeepers.

I saw some reviews saying that the hotel is far from the ski lifts – it is indeed a long walk, however the courtesy van will take you to the lift and will pick you promptly when you are ready to go back. I do not see how that could be a problem. The hotel has 4 and a half stars, which is a new concept to me. At least I never stayed in such hotel before. I guess the only thing that would make it short of 5 stars would be the lack of marble in rather small bathrooms, but that is hugely compensated by everything else this hotel has to offer, including many extras that the generous hosts have to offer – complimentary tea, cakes in the afternoon. Some guest complained about paying extra for juice or tap water at breakfast, we did not have it on our bill, which is not a fair comment – we certainly did not feel, that we are overpaying for stay or food

We came with our 6 year old girl during half term and felt a warm welcome from the very beginning. The staff is amazing and quite big for a hotel of this size. They even have a sommelier and 4 different restaurants serving gourmet cuisine. You do not need to sign any checks while there and the staff greets you by name as if you are a regular guest. The staff speaks perfect English and has a great attitude. Dominik seems to be everywhere – serving food, helping with luggage and organizing children entertainment while communicating in multiple languages. Patrik, the bartender remembers every guest’s name, which must be quite challenging, given the fact that there should be around 50 guests staying, coming and leaving all the time. On Ash Wednesday and Valentine, a special early dinner was organized for children followed by movies for kids, so that the parents could enjoy an 8 course gastronomic dinner. On Valentine’s the complimentary champagne was served and a very special dinner.

The Kristiania is a wonderfully special place. You will not find staff more genial and committed to making your stay memorable. While the inn is somewhat at one end of the village, the walk is minimal and the driver is always happy to drop you off and pick you up. And you can store skis and boots at the base so you needn't haul them each day. And it's a short walk to the walking path along the river - the walk to Zug is really beautiful. Cuisine is also lovely,and some really excellent Austrian wines. We definitely would loveto return.
