Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Old equipment, sometimes not working, broken shower, cold air in breakfast room... Funny food for breakfast - fruit was only conservated, not fresh. Quite expensive for this services. Nice that it is located in the centre.

This 3 star pension is well located in the middle of the city on the pedestrian zone (free car parking behind the hotel). It is simple, very clean, all rooms with low hard bed and "almost no pillow", meaning: their pillow is so flat you have to roll it up to get some head support. If there is anything going on in the restaurant, cafe or the tavern (meetings, wedding, reunions etc.), you may not get any sleep till the wee hours because smokers and others trying to get "fresh air" converge in the inner courtyard and discuss loudly just about anything, given the amount of alcohol consumed. This time there was no singing. Most customers disregard the fact that bedroom windows face the courtyard and that there might be people that are trying to get some sleep. Actually in this pension getting the rooms facing the street is a blessing. The pedestrian zone in Banska Bystrica is virtually "dead" after 10 PM. The restaurant serves delicious regional and international cuisine (maybe too much: 4 scoops of rice!!). Although coffee in Slovakia is quite good, in Boca they are still not acquainted with all the professional terms of Italian coffee making. Do not ask for double (doppio) espresso, you'll get rather a "lungo" i.e. double water (depending on the waiter/waitress). Have two singles and you'll be glad.

Recommended by friends who live in Zvolen, the Pension Boca was a very pleasant surprise: it was a delightful pension, just a short walk along the pedestrianised street from the town's lovely main square. We stayed in 2 enormous top floor rooms with en-suite bathrooms which were spotlessly clean. Both rooms had a giant flat screen TV. There was free parking at the rear in the Pension's own car park. Restaurant & cafe facilities were available, both to a high standard. Great value for money & highly recommended.

Even though we stayed here for only one night, we were quite impressed. The room was tidy, with more than enough space. Room consisted of large bed, table with chairs, wardrobe and big bathroom. The mattresses could be better quality as well as pillows. Bathroom was tidy, clean with more than generous space.

Staff was very helpful and in a good mood. The price could be lower but as it is located in the very city centre it was acceptable. I can recommend this guest house.
