“Great Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Great hotel run by by the Olympic gold medalist and world champion Egon Zimmerman, He made up fell really welcome. He chats with all the guests,in both at breakfast and at for dinner in the evening, A perfect host. I was very impressed with this as it made both myself and my friend felt that were part of an extended family not as guests.The room that we stayed in was grand and it looked like that they put in a brand new bathroom. The breakfast is the nice with the option of having scrambled eggs with salmon, tasty! The evening meals are quite superb, the chief needs a raise. Overall, I will be defo becoming back to lech, and I will not stay anywhere else, Hotel Kristberg take a bow!

Room Tip: If going with a group, ie 2 guys try to get single beds. Also like me just ask at the desk if need a...

Stayed at this hotel for a long weekend skiiing - and its worth it - great value for money (and Lech is v expensive)
hotel is typical austrian - lots of wood - and lots of pitcures of the owner Herr Zimmerman - olympic ski champion in 1964 - the most friendly and chatty hotel owner i have ever met - other positive is that everyone in the hotel speaks excellent english.
rooms are clean - and large enough - beds are ok - I thought the mattras was too firm - but thats personal. Bathroom - worked nothing special.
Only main issue i had was the slow and unstable Wifi internet - i rather pay a small amount per day for fast and easy to use Wifi than a free version where you need to log on every 10 minutes...(thats also due to the fact i was working - probably for the occasional user it would be ok)
and the the food - everynight a very good 5 course dinner - of exceptional quality - esp. given its included int he half board - the open wines are very good. Part a la carte (also included) breakfast was good.
Staff is very friendly and helpful.
Location is fine - app 5 mintue walk to the nearest lift - but set back form the main road so very quiet. Tremendous views of the mountains and Lech.
one thing i never understand is why these hotels are always soo warm - you have to open the windows or switch off radiators to mae it compfortable.
Overall - a cearl positive vite of confidence - i will certainly go back !

We had a great stay at Hotel Kristberg this winter. The property is extremely well kept and very clean. Our room was very spacious with a beautiful view of the town and slopes. The bathroom had spacious double sinks and a large tub. The staff are extremely friendly and couldn't do enough for us. For example, we had mentioned that we'll leave at 2pm and by 1:30 they had removed all of the snow from our car and brought it right in front. The spa area is big and again well-kept. We had lovely massages. The food is delicious. You must try the ice cream filled pancakes with chocolate sauce and whipped cream!! Overall, very good value for money for Lech--we look forward to returning.

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.
