We were very pleased with this hotel and had a great time. The location has great views of the surrounding nature, but it’s not too far from “civilization”. You definitely need a car to get around, but it’s a great jumping off point for exploring the beauty of both the Higher and Lower Tatras - Strbske Pleso and Slovak Paradise Park are each a 40-50 minute drive away. The hotel staff were all very kind and friendly. There was usually someone around who could speak English, though we also got by more easily in Russian. They were eager to help and make an effort to communicate. Covid wise, there was hand sanitizer at the reception and restaurant, little bottles provided in the bathroom toiletries kit, and with the exception of 3-4 staff, everyone wore masks in all areas of the hotel. There is also a chair lift right outside the hotel which would be super convenient for skiers. Room The room was comfortably sized, very clean, and it had a balcony with a gorgeous view. The bed was comfortable enough (I found it a little soft), the shower was fantastic (it has an overhead rain shower, always hot, and with good pressure). Spa The spa was amazing to have, and definitely helped revive us after long hikes in the mountains. There are Finnish and infrared saunas, salt “sauna”, and steam room, plus a jacuzzi and “relaxation zone”. There is also a cold water plunge pool that is constantly circulating, for a dip after the sauna. And if you want to treat yourself further, there is an ice making stand that allows you to grab a handful and put it on your head after a hot steam. There is also a small pool and kiddie pool which were popular with the families (we didn’t use them), and overall the spa had a truly 5-star vibe - really luxurious. On Saturday they had fresh fruit on offer, there was always water, and there were also alcoholic beverages available which you can charge to your room. The spa was very clean and organized, with fresh towels, and the floors were clean and water mopped up. The hotel rooms also came with robes and slippers for going down to the spa. Restaurant We spent 4 nights at the hotel, and ate dinner there on 2 of them. The restaurant is nicely decorated and capacious, allowing for good social distancing. The vibe is countryside and not too fancy, so you don’t feel out of place in your hiking attire. On Friday night we were welcomed with an aperitif of the locally made liquor (50% alcohol by volume! Sure does open the appetite). The fireplace was running, there was live music, and a festive atmosphere. The a la carte menu has a decent amount of options and the prices are fair - on par with places we saw outside the hotel, and the food above average (there was a feeling that there is a real chef in charge of the restaurant, everything tasted fresh and home made). On another night we did the buffet option (24 euros per person not including beverages). There were a lot of options, so you can definitely eat heartily! Soups, salads, quite a few proteins and side dishes, and dessert options. The breakfast buffet also has a large selection, though it doesn’t vary much day-to-day: fresh fruit, yogurt/cereal, cold cuts, sliced veggies, 2 types of eggs being freshly made as well as various sausages and other warm dishes, breads and pastries (these were the weakest part of the offerings). There is a self-serve coffee machine with options for espresso/cappuccino/etc. that was very good, and even champagne for a nice breakfast mimosa! (Minor) Drawbacks: - The room doesn’t have a thermostat, just a radiator. I imagine in the winter it is very cozy, I have no idea how hot the summers are in this area. For now, the room was a little warm, so we resorted to opening the balcony door/window and had fresh mountain air. On the plus side, we could hear the nearby stream during the quiet of the night. - The room is also not soundproof, which is our only real complaint from our stay. We could the hear the TV in the neighboring room, the shower running, and people passing by in the hall. But by 22:00-23:00 everything was super quiet. - One drawback on the spa is that the relaxation zone is not soundproof. You constantly hear the jacuzzi running and people talking - I couldn’t get relaxed in there. …
I have over 13 years of hospitality management experience in various 4 star 4 diamond hotels in the U.S. and this hotel is one of the best and hands down, the cleanest hotel I have ever seen. The design and architecture is beyond gorgeous and the detail work keeping Slovak motives is amazing. Service is implacable- David and his team know how to take care of the guest. If you are thinking about staying here, think no more. This is your place. Don’t miss out on the experience!
Feeling like in fairytale… such beautiful hotel, with attentive staff, amazing spa and massage 💆♂️ and incredible food choice… so far the BEST hotel in Slovakia, definitely worth money spent, and deserves five stars. Rooms are cute with high pillows and walk-in shower
The hotel is precisely designed following traditional folk patterns, assuming from the Zdiar region. We were impressed by the way how they chose furniture and decorations, and how it worked together. Amazing job! When it came to service and food, big disappointment. The staff barely said any welcome words. When serving, just placing a plate, no additional effort. We had to pay at the bar, waiting so long for the check... Definitely, additional staff training is required on how to treat costumers in 4* hotel. I ordered tagliatelle with gorgonzola, but no taste from gorgonzola at all, just a white sauce with pear compote on the top. Overall, the seasoning was missing. My friend ordered a salad, where no lactose allergens are listed on the Menu. She received parmesan cheese on the top, so she rather took a pill to avoid lactose intolerant reaction. We were joking, that chef had missed a plate because parmesan would really fit my tagliatelle, but I did not have it. The menu looked very good, but only on paper. My friend commented on our visit: There was a lot to watch, but little to experience. I agree.…
We have spent 4 nights with my wife and 2 kids at this hotel. Had two rooms and I must say it was an amazing stay. The staff is absolutely dedicated and the cuisine is fenomenal. Will definitely come again.
