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.

We stayed at the Hotel Toliar for a long weekend in August. The hotel itself exceeded my expectations, as the rooms were renovated, big, had lots of storage space and spacious balconies with nice views. I have been coming to the Strbske Pleso area since I was a baby so I knew the hotel is quite old and was pleasantly surprised by the modern rooms. The rooms were very clean when we arrived. The location is also fantastic, close to the train station, lots of restaurants, a mini market and many beautiful hiking trails. The breakfast was alright, nothing amazing but not too bad either. The pool is quite small and has a view of the parking garage and guests unfortunately have to pay to enter.

What was truly awful was the complete ignorance of COVID-19 rules. Nobody wore face masks anywhere, including the very crowded breakfast area (they still do open buffets even though every hotel I have been to since the beginning of the pandemic has now switched to the staff giving you the food you ask for). Guests do not wear face masks in the hallways, in the tiny elevator, in the reception area or, as I said, in the buffet line. And, unfortunately, the staff does not wear masks either. The cleaning staff wore no masks, the reception staff wore no masks, the spa staff wore no masks (incl. the masseuse), the restaurant staff wore masks on their chins. As a result, 3 out of 4 adults in our group got sick a few days after we came back home (luckily just a cold).
I also didn't like that even though our rooms were very clean when we arrived, all the cleaning staff did during our stay was provide clean towels and new toilet paper but did not clean anything in the rooms (not even make the beds or wipe the floors).

I cannot comment on the restaurant, we never ate there except for the breakfast, due to the bad reviews. Instead, I can highly recommend the restaurant Furkotka across the street which has fantastic food and very friendly staff (although they also don't wear masks, it seems that the local staff hopes for another lockdown).

Spent here four days and had really great time. The hotel is good located close to the tram station and the Lake. Its receptionists were really helpful when we needed some information about hiking and travelling. Room was nice, clean, with sepated wc and bathroom. Wellness centre is part of the hotel. In the basement there is a restaurant which serves for hotel guests as well as for the city guests. I had no problems there, the food was really tasty and the staff very very helpful.
The best about the hotel are its masseuses. After the whole day of hiking I felt like in the heaven during the massage. Both ladies were excellent ;-)

Nice unpretentious hotel right across the electric train station, in the middle of Strbske Pleso. Has a Slovak restaurant, a comfy cafe with great cakes, a grocery shop & eatery. Best for budget tourists - provides good value for the 2&1/2 star rating. Lots of stairs, but hotel now has elevator. It's very close to the lake, but a bit further to the slopes (no problem with the shuttle service provided by the hotel). The Slovak restaurant is good compared to others at Strbske Pleso, but not stellar.

We stopped at the Toliar restaurant as it was snowing heavily and it was the closest place to stop for a coffee and a quick bite. The menu was limited when it comes to light bites. We ordered 2 black teas with milk, latte, fruit punch and a hot chocolate. In addition to this we asked for two small platters of cheese. The black tea arrived with milk and a slice of lemon. Hot chocolate took 10mins to arrive. The cheese platters were plates with 10 thin slices of cheese and 3 halved grapes. The service was poor. It was evident after a short while, only certain tables were getting attention.The staff were lacking customer service. I wouldn't recommend and certainly won't be returning.

Visited the restaurant for a quick lunch, which was the worst mistake we could have made.

The waiter (male with short black hair) was extremely rude and arrogant. I accidentally left my phone inside the menu and handed it over to him after ordering. Straight after I realised I was missing my phone, so I went over to him and asked if he could check the menus as I believe it could be there. He just pointed at a pile of menus on the side and told me to look through it. After I told him that the phone wasn't there and asked if he could check the cameras for me, he just said "cant help you with that" and completely ignored me!! I asked another waitress for her assistance, who then said the manager will check the cameras with me. The manager was absolutely brilliant and took her time to help me. My phone was found somewhere on the floor (clearly taken by the waiter with my menu).

The worst part about this was that whilst the waiter was aware of the fact that I was in the office with the manager, he brought out the starters AND the mains! !!! So by the time I returned, my whole meal had been sat on the table waiting for me. When we asked why he didn't tell the chef not to cook our mains yet, he just told us that it was ready so he brought it out. Completely oblivious to the fact that it had all gone cold.

We had the duck breast with cabbage and pancakes. I asked for my duck to be cooked medium. Instead we both got overcooked hard duck breast with Bland hard pancake and tasteless cabbage. The waiter did not care about this at all and still made us pay full price without any kind of apology!!!! Absolutely disgusted with this place and would not recommend for anyone to visit. We wasted 30 euros for a bland cold meal served by ignorant rude waiters!!!!!

We were about 85 people staying here last weekend, to go hiking in the High Tatras. We have stayed here before, and the prices are fine, location is perfect, and the hotel itself is absolutely fine.

The first problem is the staff: I have never met an angrier and more pissy bartender than the one we met upon our arrival. We got yelled at and neglected fwhen trying to buy beer - excuse me for giving you my money!
Another problem was the food. We had booked the hotel about 3 months ago, but still they seemed surprised by our turning up, and didnt have enogh food for us at any time.
Lastly the beds were very bad, the pillow would have done a better job as a doormat...

Not going bck..

The restaurant looks nice and is not bad, but the quality and variety of food is only average. Toilets are disaster doasnt make sense to talk about - if you find them ! The food is ok but nothing special. Expect long waiting time and not very friendly waiters who seems to be there not for the guests but only for the salary. Maybe I was there only at wrong day :(. High level review its ok but not more than average.

Hotel has a good location, only few steps from rail station and in the centre of Strbske Pleso. It has own parking house, ski room with lockable boxes, free ski-bus, nice big SPA with swimming pools and various saunas and stylish restaurant with traditional Slovak decore. Rooms are large, partly renovated. Food is good.

This is a big hotel, visited with families with children, so if you are looking for quiet, find something else.

Personnel is mostly diligent but lacking of professionalism. Only one member of staff wore name tag, bartender Dusan. Others were (better) anonymous. This is unacceptable and also against the law. They do not greet guest by entering to the restaurant, coming to the reception desk or meeting in corridors of the hotel. No one did it during our 5 days stay. They do not even give you priority in walking. Waiters are not able to remember your order, face or what you have to pay for sometimes - they even tell you it :) There are nice members also, I would tag them concretely, but all staff is anonymous as I mentioned above.

Food is fine and with good variety. There is bufe during the whole day also for no-accommodated guests. Dishes was not always clean, so be careful.

Restaurant with bar is very nice, there are two fireplaces, a lot of traditional Slovak decore, fur-lined seats. Again staff - they let the tables uncleansed until new guest sit.

Room are big enough, what is plus when you have a winter holidays. There is a rough carpet, clean, but smelling from carpet cleaner. I thing that the little smell was from it. Room was clean but stood untouched during our 5 day stay. They only put fresh towels on the bed (sometimes only one towel instead of two).

There is no hairdryer, refrigerator, safe, teapot in the rooms - it should be a standard in 3* hotel.

My suggestion: I think that hotel with this capacity would better care about the clients also to give them some program every evening. It would be easy coverable by increasing of turnover in the bar by this number of clients. Now there is no animation program, nothing, just the bar. We spent there the New Year's Eve Party and it was pretty boring. Only some local wedding band, no Dj, no program, no tombola, no MC... nothing. It would be also a good idea to thing during the making of seating plan and look at least of guests' birthdays, if they are a young couple, family with children or a retired couple. Not just to mix people in alphabet or random order.

Prices are high, comparable to the centre of Slovak capital city, but it is expected in this location. It would be also nice to offer the expected standard of services for it.

Although I originate from Slovakia, my family and I have lived abroad for about 16 years now. We travel back home every summer, but usually stay close to family and friends and our travels are short distance. This year, however, I have decided to introduce my homeland to my children and visit High Tatras with them. We traveled across the country and due to a car accident on the road, we arrived to our destination later than anticipated. A friend of mine and her two kids we were traveling with had made a reservation for themselves at Hotel FIS in Strbske Pleso and even though without reservation, we were hoping to find a room for one night there as well. However, the personal there was very unfriendly and not accommodating at all. We were left without a room to stay and the time was getting closer to 9pm. When asked whether they could recommend any other accommodations, they gave as two numbers to call from our own mobiles, which is something I have never experienced in any other Hotel I've stayed in a past. Needless to say, one of the hotels was fully packed, however, I tried another one, which happened to be Hotel "TOLIAR" and a friendly young voice on the phone was the most kind and welcoming we could have ever hoped for. Although without reservation, a young gentleman named KAMIL GLADIS had promised to do his best to find us a room for that night. He welcomed us with a big smile and managed to move things around, so we could have a room to stay over night. Due to our delay on the road, our kids didn't get to have a proper dinner and the kitchen at Hotel TOLIAR was closing at 10pm. I've expressed our desire to eat to Mr. Gladis and he managed to help us with that as well. I was very surprised by his kindness and professionalism, especially after visiting Hotel FIS. Because of their excellent service, my kids and I have decided to stay another night. We had breakfast and dinners at their restaurant and were just as pleased with service and amazing food as well. Not only am I going to share this with my friends and you, but next time we are visiting High Tatras, I know exactly where we are staying!
THANK YOU KAMIL for all your HELP and accommodations, because of YOU my kids and I had the best time EVER in High Tatras!

After some outing in the area we stumbled upon Toliar's restaurant, checked out and stayed. The atmosphere was really relaxed and inviting with the fireplace , service was quick and friendly. Our food was very good, drinks cold so what more can we ask for ? Prices are fair to the area so I can not complain. I would definitely return.
