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.

I stayed here for a week with my colleagues for business trip. It was recommended for its extended stay rooms. I had a slightly larger superior room which had a balcony along with a kitchen & dining room with microwave and fridge. The bathroom had an elevated tub with shower head at floor level which was not adjustable. So, it was a bit awkward to crouch down while showering. The location was spot on in the town center with water fountain which was perfect. Plus, there were plenty of places to pick for dining after work. The mornings were nice since there was attached cafe for complimentary breakfast. There was fresh fruit, cold cuts, bread, and cereal. It was better than most American hotels which is mostly carbs. The evenings were hot and only relief was to open the balcony doors. The AC thermostats did not work and confirmed with my other colleagues as well. Maid service was good and was nice to have it freshened up each day. Overall, no complaints except that rooms didn't have great ventilation during our stay in early June.

Nice hotel, large and clear rooms, good price / quality, good location, friendly staff. I came so far only in winter - the rooms were warm and I'm staying for 1 night only; for this purpose it is my first pick in Banska Bystrica.

This nice, modern hotel with helpful staff, situated in the city centre is really worth recommendation. The room I had was well equipped, very clean and with nice, big bathroom with a bath. In addition it had some kitchen facilities: fridge, cups, plates, electric kettle... All in cosy but elegant style.

My wife and I stayed here for four nights. The hotel, classified as a “Garni”, though I’m not sure what that means, was one street behind the town square and only 5 minutes walk to Banská Bystrica Mesto railway station. The location is good, being close to the Europa Shopping Mall (10 minutes) and the central train and bus stations (15 minutes walk).
The hotel has a nice entrance foyer that adjoins a cafe that is used by hotel guests for their breakfast. Breakfasts were included and there was a good selection catering for many different tastes.
Check-in was quick and efficient and the staff, who spoke reasonable English, compared to zero Slovakian on my part were very helpful.
Our room was a good size with a very comfortable bed and serviced daily. There was room for a lounge and coffee table. There was also plenty of hanging space and places to store our luggage.
The bathroom has a shower over a bathtub. However the shower is a hand held one and is set at midriff height with no shower screen or curtain. You either wash yourself sitting in the bath or try and stand in the bath and hope you don’t spray water all over the floor. There are also no towel racks if you want to dry and reuse your towels.
The room is heated, essential in Slovakia in winter but is not air conditioned. It was very hot (around 27C). We could keep the two windows and balcony door open during the day but at night because it is on a busy street favoured by rev heads for making as much noise with their cars at night as possible we had to keep the windows shut night to get some sleep.
I would still recommend the hotel as the room is comfortable and of a good size, the staff are helpful and breakfasts are very good but if you can, especially in summer, ask for a room that doesn’t face the road.
