In the heart of Alpine ski resort Kranjska Gora, the Larix is a four-star hotel popular for its comfortable facilities and excellent location. This hotel is a great choice for anybody who wants to walk out of their hotel straight on to the ski slopes.
In the centre of Kranjska Gora, Hotel Larix is handy to the town's shops, bars and restaurants however winter holidaymakers will appreciate the hotel's location at the base of a mountain and its ski slopes.
WIFI connections is free in the hotel lobby, whereas cable internet is provided in-room.
A free all-day shuttle transports guests between the Larix and its sister property the Spik, a few miles away.
The Larix is part of a hotel group which offers (mostly free) year-round activities for children thanks to an in-house animation team.
The Hotel Larix is a (not particularly attractive) low-rise building with wooden balconies overlooking its private carpark on one side, and the mountains on the the other. It consists of 118 rooms including 10 apartments and 2 disabled access rooms. The lobby opens out into a cosy lobby bar and lounge which features a real fireplace, antique grandfather clock and baby grand piano. A bright mural depicting local scenes inject some colour into the room. The lobby bar extends into a 'ski bar' with its collection of blue banquet seating; it is open in winter and provides direct access from the ski slopes outside. Also accessed from the lobby is the hotel's aqua park facility; always supervised, it boasts a large indoor swimming pool (although there's an outdoor terrace with loungers and parasols), three types of sauna, a jacuzzi, kids' pool and small snack bar area (so that guests aren't forced to get dressed and go to the restaurant at lunchtime). The heated pool is open from 9:00am until 8:00pm except on weekends when it is open until 11:00pm. A range of other leisure facilities is available at the Larix, such as Vita, a health and wellbeing centre with several rooms for massage and beauty treatments, a casino and two outdoor bars at the 'winter beach.' There is also a small kids' playground nearby.
Rooms at the Larix are simple but clean and comfortable, but would benefit greatly from a makeover due to their tired appearance (faded bed linens and matching curtains in bland colours). Accommodation is not particularly spacious but most rooms feature balconies (only 11 don't) - best to ask for a room that overlooks the mountain/ski slopes rather than the village and car park. Some interconnecting rooms are available. While there are flat screen televisions in each room, other features aren't so modern (old-style safety deposit box with key). Bathrooms are smallish and decorated in plain grey/white tilework. Room service is available until 10:00pm.
There is one restaurant at Hotel Larix, as well as several bars (lobby bar, ski bar and two outdoor bars - the last three used during ski season only). The buffet restaurant is on the ground floor, adjacent to the lobby bar and open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The simple setting features several granite-top buffet stations (serving international cuisine), high ceilings and several different rooms arranged with tables draped in maroon and white tablecloths.
