You can enjoy the beauty and calm of the Štiavnica hills to your heart's content in the Hotel**** Salamandra which lies in the middle of the Salamandra ski resort. The four-star hotel combines the high quality services and unique gastronomic experience from the kitchens of chef Ľubomír Herko with the quiet charm of the Štiavnica countryside. Hotel guests can make use of the wellness centre, squash court and multi-purpose gym. The hotel also offers premises for organising conferences of up to 130 people. Thanks to these qualities, the Hotel**** Salamandra is ideal not only for families with children who want to enjoy a comfortable ski holiday in the closest resort to Bratislava, but also for more demanding guests or those who enjoy an active lifestyle.

This was our third visit in last 6years. We like atmosphere of Banska Stiavnica a lot and this hotel was our repeated option due to previous good experiences. Accomodation is perfect, rooms are nice and clean, but the quality of restaurant and bar declined. A la carte menu was significantly reduced, offering only few meals really. and also the service was not sufficient (really too long waiting times, also waiting for clean table be ready, etc.). The stuff is friendly and doing their best I believe, but some of them were obviously not experienced and generally, more of them would be needed. One explained that reduced menu is consequence of covid19 pandemic due to which they are suffering from lack of qualified chefs and waiters… which is a shame. I do not think I would reconsider to come back.

We spent a few relaxing days in this resort with my family. We had two rooms. We had one of our dogs with us, which was not a problem at all. Hotel is located in the heart of nature. In front of the hotel there is a “tajch”, which looks like a lake, with green clean water. There is a small stony beach and a short stag, people were taking a cold bath. The hotel has enough of parking slots. Cuisine is very good,creative, tasty, but the prices are a bit exaggerated. there is a nice wellness, where you can find all you need to relax, swimming pool, massage etc. While we spent time there, there were outside reconstruction works, and that was to be heard in the rooms a bit. There is no air-conditioning. A fridge and safe are normally available in the room. rooms were nice and clean. Overall we had a pleasant relaxing time. Thank you.

+ Location is excellent in the middle of the Mountains, beautiful lake in front of Hotel. Spa facilities on good shape. Friendly and helpful employees. - Room needs renovation - damages on the walls. Restaurant area to be modified, complete Lay-out makes it not very Cosy more like canteen style rather than restaurant and Mountain View completely blocked. Also that was pity for such price range restaurant to get paper napkins and cheap cutlery.

We spent 2 nights with family there and was firstly amazed with everything there, but then found a couple of things which could be better in 4 star resort/hotel. Here are some things not working very well: not enough waiters during dinner (nobody noticed we left without signing bill to be charged to room - we signed next day by breakfast), really bad coffee during breakfast buffet (instant coffee machine), furniture in bathroom from cheap not solid wood (humidity and water needs to use long lasting materials in bathroom), no towels in price for children under 6. Here are some really good things in resort: pool, saunas were fine, really enjoyed by children, nothing special for adults (only 2 saunas and Gara Rufa fish tank which seems to not be used for a while), activities for family - rent a bike, manual 4-wheeler, hiking, skiing in winter, friendly and young staff, enough space in basic apartment. At all it was a really nice stay but a bit over-priced.
