“Another wonderful week at the Kristberg”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

This year was our 10th year at the Kristberg and every year seems to be better than the previous. Egon is there with a welcoming smile making sure we are all happy and always has a great story to tell.( this year he came back from Stochi with the winning mens downhill suit in his possession!!) Michael seems to be there 24/7 (either that or there are 5 of him) and I must mention that he went beyond the call of duty for us this year. We made a mistake with our transfers back to Zurich airport on the busiest day of the season. No one was available to take us. Michael dropped everything and drove us the 2 hours to Zurich !!
Now thats service!!
I would highly recommend the Kristberg to anyone looking to stay in Lech.

As a tour operator, I am used to checking hotels for my company. Hotel Kristberg really does tick all my check boxes and I cannot rate highly enough the excellent food we have been served at every meal without exception.

The staff are lovely, courteous, fast and efficient.

Mikael the manager is always on hand to bring extra help when required and for a chat.

The room we have is a Junior Suite with pull out double bed for our two children. The quality of the beds is excellent along with the quality of the towels, sheets, toiletries room cleaning and tidying.

This hotel as far as I am concerned is the ideal size for a ski holiday. Large enough to feel luxurious but small enough to feel cosy, friendly and homely. Nothing is far away and the walk to the ski school very quick and easy.

We will certainly return as this feels like home : )
Highly recommended to both couples and families. Enjoy!

Room Tip: Junior Suite is perfect for a family with 1 or 2 children. 9pull out bed of excellent quality).

I just returned from my first visit to Lech and a 4 day stay at this wonderful hotel I have worked in the tourism and hospitality industry for about 40 years before recently retiring and I know how rare it is to find quality service,excellent food and a clean, will established hotel room. It was easy to see how the hotel management were successful through their own service and serving as role models in training the staff to treat customers as if they were VIP's. The Spa is first class, You can even smoke a cigar at the bar. What else could you ask for?

We had an enjoyable weekend stay at this pretty family-owned hotel. The staff were uniformly pleasant and helpful, assisting us with all of our skiing-related needs including lift tickets and ski school bookings. Meals were outstanding as well - especially the Austrian specialities served at dinner. The room was not fancy by any means, but it was clean and comfortable, and very quiet. Overall, excellent value and a place we would happily visit again.

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.
