I have spent here couple nights with my family. Very nice, friendly and kind staff, but unfortunatelly quite old and over used interior furnishing and carpets with patches and spots, very poor bathroom. We had halfboard with dinner - 3 different possibilities to be chosen from. Fine but very average, we had certainly lot of better experiences with food in...

The location is really nice, the hotel has some spirit and could be really beautifull, but urgently needs reconstruction. Concerns rooms, floors, lobby, wellness, hotel surroundings... However the staff is really nice and again - hotel has rich history, but currently reaches max 3* level...

Dear User Joseph B, Thank you for your review. You are right, hotel retains its spirit for more than 110 years and has never been closed during this time. In the near future we plan to renovate the interior, exchange carpets, painting etc. I believe you will visit hotel in the future again. Best regards, Božena Fábryová General manager

No shower curtain, no tea / coffee-making facilities, cold plates at evening meal, poor choice of food at evening buffet meal. Loads of fancy extras such as a health spa, but they can't get the basics right.

We were staying at the hotel a family of four. Rooms were very big. Front desk were very kind and English speaking. Breakfast and dinner buffet offered a large variety of different dishes so all of us find what to pick. The hotel has also a great spa with massage treatment which was great as well.

Choose this hotel if you will experience the glamour from the past. This is really a classic GRAND hotel - but the glamour is faded, so the hotel is calling for a serious makeover. I was guest at a conference, so I had a large suite but I think all rooms are reasonable big - and so the bathrooms with...

Dear user Roarmaag, Thank you for time that you spent by writing review. I would like to say that our biggest advantage is the size of rooms. Hotel originally had about 120 rooms, currently has 79, so the size of the rooms is a real advantage. Offer of fruits and vegetables depends on the season of course, but I hope...

The Grandhotel would make a terrific movie set, but as a hotel it is, unfortunately, lacking. The staff were adequate but not especially helpful. The breakfast buffet was extensive, comparable to other Slovakian hotels. The main problem, however, was the room. Although ours had a lovely view over the valley below, the furniture was tired and faded, the wallpaper was...

Hotel is self-advertised as ‘timeless elegance and ultimate individuality, keeping a high standard… Spacious rooms full of light, with stylish decoration and breathtaking views of the Tatra nature offer extraordinary comfort”.
