The Hotel is clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. I shared a twin room with a friend and the room was lovely, spacious and with a balcony overlooking the slopes. The food was amazing - especially breakfast. Having the boot room and the ski shop and gondola in the basement was a real plus and the skiing around...

This is good Austrian Hotel with a modern spin on it.... Whilst not having the tyrolean charm of some of the other hotels in Obergurgl, it is modern and stylish and the food is excellent and the spa one of the best I have been in. It is well located, the bar is good and the staff brilliant. So what...

We went to The Crystal as a family with two young children in March. From the second we arrived at the hotel we couldn't have been made more welcome! The staff are so lovely and literally went the extra mile at every turn. Our daughters had slippers and robes too in the hotel room which was split over two levels...

We just returned from our third year at the Crystal. It is hard to point out the one thing that attracts us to this place: It is located on the edge of the slopes and next to a cable car. It has a fantastic spa facility, lovely rooms (we usually stay with a family of 4 in one room) and...

We spent a week at The Crystal, chosen because it had a swimming pool and after reading the amazing reviews on Tripadvisor. Initial impressions were not great. The reception area (and some communal parts of the hotel) seem dated and impersonal. As we arrived at lunchtime, our room was not ready. This of course was not a problem, but it...
