We loved our 2-night stay here. The photos of the property on the website we booked through were accurate. The place is very charming. It had just the folksy atmosphere and decor we were looking for! We're on a driving holiday, and this made a great base for visiting Banská Štiavnica, the Calvary, and the Svaty Anton manor house. We stayed two nights. The second night there was someone in the room next door, and we could hear his coughing very clearly, so its not very soundproof. We wear earplugs, so no big problem. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower had doors!! No water all over the bathroom floor. The restaurant was very nice for relaxing in at the end of the day, with a couple of drinks and a good meal.

Our room was spacious and comfortable. The dinner menu was filled with typical slovak dishes. I had the dumplings stuffed with pork mince and they were excellent. And reasonably priced. The only drawback for us was that the penzion is along a busy road. Our room was quiet but we didn't feel like walking back to the castle again that evening.

Though we were not accommodated in this Inn, my friend had a little sneak peek into the room and she said it was amazing and I quote, "If I will come back here one day, I would be accommodated here!" So it must have been pretty neat. But back to the food, because this Inn has a nice restaurant, we had beer and Kofola, cabbage soup and dumplings with sheep cheese and I am quite strict about my favorite food, dumplings with sheep cheese. I have to say that those belonged to TOP 5 in the chart of places where I have eaten the best version of this traditional slovak food. Do not hesitate if you will be in Sv. Anton. This place is great!

An excellent Slovak village experience. If you're looking for 19th century Slovak countryside charm, this is the place for you. The wooden building is fitted in a traditional style reminiscent of the village house of the 19th century and its warmth will embrace you whether you're on a summer holiday or looking to heat up in during the harsh winters of central Slovakia. The food is a chapter on its own. The chef makes everything by hand and all of the ingredients and foodstuffs are sourced ethically and locally from nearby farms. The sheep's cheese is divine, the klobasa is delicious and the bryndza is exactly like grandma used to make. Forget mass produced conveyor belt food - every meal is prepared carefully and with love. To top off the experience, the service is excellent as well. Run by the mayor of the village and his wife, they will strive to make you feel at home away from home and will make sure that your experience is a good one. Highly recommend.

We decided to travel by train (or, lacking that, by bus) from Prague to Budapest via Slovakia. We booked a night at a hotel in the district seat of Banska Bystrica, then tried to book three more nights in Banska Stiavnica, but the travel agent reported back, excitedly, that all of the rooms there were taken on account of the Salamander Festival. What? A festival devoted to young frogs? We had to see it, so we persisted. A prepaid double at the Stary Hostinec, a guesthouse located in the adjacent town of Svaty Anton, 5.4 kilometers from Stiavnica, was the best the agent could do for us, so we took it. Svaty Anton sports a big country house of some former Bulgarian prince and a kind of dude ranch, and not much else. The bus to Stiavnica costs 0.45 to 0.60 euros and runs several times each day. Stary Hostinec -- the Old Guest House in Slovakian -- is a restaurant/beer garden/road house with ten double rooms upstairs. Parking is available. Our room was clean and spacious, constructed of pine planks, with modern fixtures (including a TV and a small refrigerator) and historic touches (including a traditional dress hung on the wall). There was wi-fi in the restaurant and courtyard. The restaurant operated all day and offered excellent, filling food and drink at very reasonable prices. At 35 euros per night, the room was a bargain. The young women who alternated working reception were very helpful and nice. Stiavnica wasn't that interesting -- the festival honored the apocryphal salamander who was spotted with a gold nugget in its mouth, setting off a Slovakian gold rush several centuries ago -- and we ended up taking an expensive cab ride from Svaty Anton to Budapest, but if you are traveling that way, I recommend Stary Hostinec. It's the way travel used to be.
