If the evening meal wasn't so bad I would go back to this hotel - which would then be our fourth visit. We went out to the pizzeria one night as the "choice" for that evening was so unappealling. This is a shame as the hotel staff are all excellent (the waitress & Dalibar the barman especially), it is very...

First impressions was that this is a nice little hotel and that impression lasted throughout the holiday, nothing outstanding, but it did the job well. On arrival, the hotel wasn't manned and so staff from the sister hotel (Crystal) came over to book us in, which they did very quickly. Also, there is only 1 lift in the building and...

A superb place to relax or go skiing in the mountains. Nice traditional decor with the sister hotel Crystal giving you very modern facilities just across the road. The staff are all genuinely very friendly and the spa & pool area top notch. The food was high quality and vast in choice. Would recommend.

We choose this hotel for its location to the lift and its links with the Crystal Hotel and after our fabulous week in the Sportiv we are already planning to return next year! The style is typical Austrian, which we love, it is clean, tidy and very comfortable. Yes, the food does leave something to be desired, but for the...

On this trip, I met one of the most friendly barmen I have ever met in my entire life. He was incredibly friendly and helped make the holiday as sensational as it was. The hotel was fantastic, my family made friends will all of the staff there as they're very nice people. The barman, named "Dalibor Jozić". He was phenomenal...

We have just returned from a week in the Crystal Sportiv Hotel. The location was fantastic, with a cable car attached to the hotel access to the slopes was easy. The ski school was only 200 metres away and as the village is quite small one could walk around the village in 20 mins. The rooms are clean and tidy...

OK. This hotel is fairly cheap so I expected it to be basic, and basic can be fine if it's done right. However, the Sportiv is poor in most aspects. If I discount the facilities that are shared with the physically linked Crystal hotel (boot room, spa, main bar area) which are all excellent, then there is little to recommend...

We enjoyed a good family holiday in Obergurgl at the beginning of March, however, the food at this hotel was very poor. We had had a holiday in St Christophe a month earlier where the hotel food was very good so we were constantly comparing. We will NOT be returning to this hotel. A plus point Alessio did a great...

Good location, friendly staff, slightly old fashioned hotel. The food particularly the evening meals are very disappointing. To start there is a very average soup that is always vegetarian as no choice is offered. There is a help yourself salad bar which consisted of 6 basic salads - always a bowl of tomato, a bowl of lettuce one of sweet...

Great location next to the gondola with a ski store in the hotel. You benefit from the use of the Crystal Hotel facilities which are very good. Food could be improved and salad bar disappointing. Good base for a skiing holiday in a 1900 metre high resort.
