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.

Comfortable, cosy and clean. The staff was very charming and spoke english well enough. Having breakfast in the garden was lovely. Only a short walk to the centre. Good value for the money, with the clean and simple room. The road was a bit noisy, but not enough to disturb us.

It was a very disappointing experience. We booked a room with a garden view, and when we arrived, they told us that they do not have any rooms with garden view. Garden view means that a house has garden view. The room was overlooking a busy road with a lot of transport, impossible to sleep !!! We refused to stay there and had to look quickly for another hotel...

My wife and I stayed here while visiting family in Bystrica. We loved the decor of the room and rest of building. The room was very affordable and short walk formt he town centre with amazing sites and views. There is also a really nice breakfast room with a outdoor garden area. The thing we will most remember about or experience here is the staff and how friendly they were. They made a real effort to communicate with us in English with humour. will definitely come back again if we visit Bystrica

I stayed at Penzion Expo for 4 nights in July, 2015. There were 2 x single beds, a bathroom, towels and a TV in the room and breakfast was an option at the cost of Euro 4.00. Although the guesthouse is not located in the centre of Banska Bystrica, it takes only 5 minutes from the centre on foot and its surroundings is quiet. As the landlady does not speak English, you need to find her son who speaks English quite well in case you have questions.

A small but nice guesthouse really close to the center of the city (5 minutes walk). We arrived two hours later what we planned and signed on the booking.com site of the guesthouse, but the receptionist was there, and helped us to bring up the luggage. He speaks fluently English. The rooms are clean and big: one living room, bed room, bath room and a kitchen. Staff are friendly. The breakfast can be better (better products). The price/value is great!

It is true that the owners are not always in the building and therefore you have to arrange an exact time of the arrival. I was pleasantly suprised that even that we were late we managed to get in touch with the owners who then came in only a few minutes to open. I was afraid that next day we will be leaving the accommodation at 6 AM which might cause a problem. I was pleasantly surprised when they arranged everything so we could leave so early. The only thing that I would take as a disadvantage was that the receptionist did not speak English and that there was no kettle to boil hot water in the morning. However, they were very friendly and even though I called them probably 5 times they were very pleasant and answered all of my questions. We even got a great deal of information about Banska and were told what to see.

We booked this pension in for 1 night in july 2014. We also arranged with them that we will come around 4 pm. Unfotunately we arrived at 5 pm. When we arrived the whole pension was closed, noone came opened the door or picked up calls. We try to call also on mobile but of course noone picked up also that phone. I have say we felt very dissapointed and betryed as we count on this accomodation. As I said, our reservation was confirmed also by phone by them and also we´ve already arranged approx. arrival time. After this we had to quickly look for something else what was not easy as it was summer holidays and friday evening and most of accomodation was already taken. I don´t recommend this pension at all.
