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.

it was really an exceptional stay. located right in the old town, in a small but cozy apartment house. the rooms were clean, very spacious and simply lovely. the breaksfast was everything you would need - nothing over the roof, just simple but also delicious. parking may be tricky for big cars, but with patience it is not a problem. i do highly recommend and if i ever visit Košice again this is the place i will be staying.

The hotel has an excellent location very close to old town. I arrived early and was able to get into my room straight away which was a massive bonus - I would have been happy just to leave my case. The room was very spacious and clean. The staff were very friendly throughout my stay. There was an excellent varied breakfast which got me off to a very good start to the day. The hotel also has a spa with sauna, steam room and Jacquzzi to unwind in from 5pm which I used every day.

I just returned to the Hradbova again after staying here a couple of years ago, and overall it is still an excellent choice and excellent value for a short stay in Kosice, although there are one or two signs of wear and tear, so it does not quite warrant a five out of five review. Two years ago the room I stayed in was spotless and in perfect condition, but this time there were stains on the carpet and scuff marks on the walls, not a big deal for most people, but it spoils the overall feel of the room in my opinion. The bathroom was very small, but functional, it was clean, but not quite up to the high standards I experienced here two years previously.

Breakfast is excellent, they have a buffet with cheeses,cold meats, cereal, yoghurts, bread, etc plus juice and a coffee machine where you help yourself. They also have a menu where you can select things like omlette and eggs and other prepared breakfasts. On our second day nobody seemed to be working in the kitchen, and this extra menu was not available, only the cold buffet, that was a shame because the food they cooked was very good.

The reception staff we met were all extremely friendly and helpful and their English was great, this was the biggest positive for me.

You can park outside the Hradbova in one of their reserved bays for 5 Euro per night and it is monitored by CCTV from reception.

Free wifi is available throughout the Hradbova.

Overall still a good choice for a short stay in Kosice, but the rooms need to be smartened up a bit to get a five star rating again.

The location of this hotel is good, only about a 5 to 10 minute walk to the main square with all the restaurants and historical sights, BUT the breakfast was very poor and the room had some issues.

We stayed two nights and each day, the breakfast was by far the worst we encountered on our three week trip. There was scrambled eggs and sausages, but on the first day when we were arrived for breakfast, the egg warmer was almost empty and we got a very small portion. It was never refilled.

The next day when we arrived for breakfast at 8 AM, (and keep in mind that the breakfast was to last until 10, so it wasn’t that we arrived towards the end), the egg warmer was gone...just an empty hole where it was supposed to be. But we thought for sure a new tray of eggs would arrive soon, so we waited and waited and waited. However, we never saw anyone appear, the eggs remained empty despite several more people arriving for breakfast, and a half hourlater, we finally left without getting eggs.

The rest of the breakfast was also not that great...the usual cheese and meat tray, a small selection of breads, and a fruit bowl that consisted only of apples. There was one small bunch of grapes that disappeared immediately and that was all. The “pastry” selection was a bowl of packaged bars...no freshly baked items. We both agreed that this breakfast was very disappointing compared to what we had been getting at other places.

The room was okay, but it faced the front street and the traffic noise was bad at night. The bed was two twins pushed together and the mattresses keep sliding apart so that there was always a huge crack in the middle. They just wouldn’t stay together no matter how hard we tried! And the mattress on one side had a real slope to it, so bad that one morning my husband actually rolled right off the bed when he turned over.

And to top it off, the reception staff were not particularily friendly or helpful.

So the pros are the location and the lovely outdoor courtyard with a fish pond for relaxing. But the cons, the poor breakfast, lousy bed, and noisy room, would be reasons to choose another hotel.

Penzion Hradbová was a great choice for us. It is a short walk to the old town and main street of Kosice. The room was spotless and had a modern bathroom and good air conditioning and TV. We had a rental car and parking was close and secure. The included breakfast was wonderful and all so affordable. There is a small section of old city wall right at the penzion.

The Penzion Hradbova is located 200m from the old centre of Kosice. It is a car fee zone, full of historic buildings, grand churches, shops and eating, drinking and people watching places.
The hotel is in two adjoining buildings with a beautiful, quiet garden between the blocks.
Check-in was quick and easy. Not so the climb up the 44 stairs to our room. There is no elevator. The room was one of the larger ones with a sink and small bench with bar fridge. The room and seperate bathroom were spotless and the bed super comfortable. Thankfully the room had aircon as it was on the top floor and the the temperature was 33C in Kosice.
A very good breakfast is provided with cereal, meats, fruits, cooked dishes and an excellent coffee maker is available.
Kosice is a lovely place to visit in eastern Slovakia and the Penzion Hradbova is a very quiet and comfortable place to stay.

It really can't be any closer to the nice city center of Kosice and with parking. Rooms were ok, we had everything we needed. Service was very good as well and breakfast was great. I would definitely recommend.

The pension was excellent. The rooms were tidy and beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and quite a lot. We didn't use the spa.
The pension is in the city center, but it's in a quiet area.
The staff was kind and helpful.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay at the Penzion Hradbova and would highly recommend this guest house to anyone. Tucked away up a side street (very close to the main street) and very understated from the outside. Once inside the staff were very welcoming and helpful and fortunately spoke very good English - we had only a few words of Slovak! Our room and bathroom were both huge, modern, well fitted out and spotless. There was a kettle with tea and coffee and a fridge with a mini bar. The breakfast was great, eat as much as you want and also included a choice of cooked dishes. We also took advantage of the spa which was included in the accommodation cost, again this was modern and spotless - a great facility to have in such a small guest house but most appreciated after a day out sightseeing.

Kosice itself is a lovely city, fairly compact but plenty to do for a weekend. We found everyone friendly and helpful and everywhere was incredibly clean. Public transport was both very efficient and very cheap, 60c for a half hour bus ride to the airport. Lots of bars and restaurants and lots of beautiful historic buildings.

We were very pleasantly surprised by Hotel Hradbova. All the staff we met were very friendly, cheerful, helpful and professional.
Our business room was very spacious, clean and with a lovely view of a pretty garden. A great bonus was a fan, and a kettle to make a cup of tea, even bags of tea and coffee were provided and this is not a common sight in Slovak hotels or B&Bs. The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were just right for us. We had a very good night sleep. The place was very quiet through the whole night.
We took advantage of the free entry to the wellness/spa area and we tried the relaxation pool and the sauna. The wellness area was very clean and sheets and towels were provided.
The breakfast was served over a long period of time and had to suit any traveller. The range of food was great. The buffet breakfast offered the usual continental items such as different kinds of breads and rolls, ham, salami, cheeses, pate, eggs, sausages, jams, Nutella, yoghurts and much more. In addition to this there was a cooked breakfast menu with plentiful options.
The location is great, a few minutes from the main street. The street is not very pretty but it is very quiet. The wi-fi in the hotel was good and free of charge. Only the TV reception was not very good, but we didn´t spend much time watching it anyway.
Overall, we got more in the hotel than we expected, and the price was very good. We will definitely stay in Hradbova when we visit again.
