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.

Inconspicuous oasis of relaxation in High Tatras. Offering great rooms, food, wellness and personnel. Fifteen-minute walk from Strbske pleso. We come back to this hotel almost every year since 2012, choosing it for both our summer and winter vacation in Tatra Mountains. Having experienced staying at Kempinski and Patria on multiple occasions, I still prefer Borovica despite a couple of shortcomings. The most obvious one is its distance from Strbske pleso, which is not that much of a problem during the day, but since taking a walk around the lake in the late evening, with lamps lit up, is so beautiful, you are making a compromise. Once you had your delicious dinner at Borovica, you would probably think twice about dragging your full belly up the road for that hint of romantic. Especially if you have little children. There are rooms at Borovica from which you get a very nice view at the mountains, but if you are accommodated on the other side of the hotel, you have to make do with pine trees at best. In this respect, both Kempinski and Patria do have the upper hand. As they do in offering parking space in a garage, extra paid but very handy in winter time. Being slightly hidden, Borovica’s location scores in calmness. The hotel is considerably smaller than its counterparts at Strbske pleso, which also means it is cosier in almost every aspect. Rooms are quite nice and very well equipped. Bathrooms offer ample space and quality cosmetics. Being a four-star hotel, it is not fair to compare it with the Grand Hotel Kempinski, but personally I hardly sense any difference in comfort between the two, notwithstanding Kempinski’s superior location. I am convinced that you will be very satisfied with the dinner service, the menu always offers three choices and I can’t remember a time I would have any complaint about a meal. In the summer, you get to enjoy some courses prepared on a charcoal grill. During the day, the a la carte menu is absolutely perfect, though we rather tend to grab something for lunch on the hikes or in the chalet at Strbske pleso. As for breakfast, the buffet selection helps with a pleasant start for the day. The restaurant and other hotel staff have always been very kind and professional, which can’t/couldn’t be said about every other hotel mentioned here, unfortunately. You can also indulge in tobacco and brandy savouring in the splendid cigar lounge designed in the typical English style. In winter, a wood crackling in the fireplace enhances the atmosphere. The lobby bar offers a great selection of drinks as well, and a few years ago it was extended to the exterior in the form of a couple of tables, which is highly convenient. The wellness is a strong asset. The pool area offers a beautiful view of the neighbouring pine woods, and I just love to have a swim and then read the magazines while resting on a lounge chair and soaking up the beauty of the surrounding nature. The selection of saunas is excellent, complemented by a hammam. You can also have a jacuzzi on the rooftop prepared for you and observe the mountain peaks from within, regardless of year season. I particularly like the fact that there are rarely more than just a couple of hotel guests in the wellness at the same time. Very often you may have the entire wellness area for yourself, if you choose time outside of typical peak hours. The hotel also offers a variety of spa and cosmetic procedures, so you know where to look for your better-half when she is not around. We have had a pleasure of meeting many remarkable therapists over the years here, very skilful and incredibly kind. The spa rooms are very nice too. My favourite is the cigar lounge. If the weather does not allow for any activity outside, the fitness studio offers you a possibility to toil yourself in every position imaginable. The equipment is of high quality and the room has an outside view, and it is just a few steps away from the showers and the pool. There is even an artificial climbing wall of considerable height on the hotel’s south facade ready for you, and the hotel provides an experienced instructor for supervision. During the ski season, you can rely on hotel's excellent shuttle service driving you to and from the ski areal. The shortcoming considering the distance of Strbske pleso is probably the only true weak point of this hotel. Although I know it is only my own laziness that prohibits me from taking those wonderful summer evening walks around the lake after dinner. But let’s not put that on the record. Otherwise I am having a hard time to think of something else. Hmm, yes, the wording on the lift’s wall designating the amenities on each particular floor could get a renovation, since some letters were missing. And hopefully some day soon there will be digital bracelet keys introduced, so that you do not have to think of a key card when going to the wellness. This summer (2020) we were not able to get a room at Borovica, since we decided for a trip to Tatras at the last minute and all had already been booked out. Staying at another hotel, in a very nice suite with a magnificent lake view, we only got reassured that Borovica stays our first choice in the region.

We spent just one night in the hotel. But all was great. We travelled as a small family and were looking for an overstay in Strbske Pleso. Every hotel was sold out... So with last hope early evening we came and got one room (apartment-2rooms). All perfect! Clean, no noise, breakfast, dinner inkl., kids club inkl. animation ( our two kids were super impressed) . For Spa, there was no space in our program, so i cannot judge. The ambience of the hotel is very friendly. Even with kids and quit fullhouse, u dont get to feel it. The restaurant staff is bit reserved but its ok. I prefer to eat and not to be asked permanently after my needs. All in All ... We would visit the place again.

My family and me stayed there for 3 nights. The family room was next to lift shaft so we felt like on railway station as regards loudness and shaking of room. We were disappointed with dinner menu as it was only about 3 meals and only 1 was vegetarian. Not to say about waiting time in average 20 minutes. And the outdoor jacuzzi on the roof was probably joke.... I am sorry but we somehow expected more from 4 stars hotel....

We were disappointed. This hotel was recommended to me as a perfect 5-star hotel with great wellness. We travelled as a family (2 adults and 2 small kids) and two our friends as couple. THe hotel was very clean, nice, staff was nice, but ! We ordered apartman, our friends normal room. Our room was much smaller then room of our friends what was strange as we paid more. Wellness was average, but good. But what was very disappointing was the food in restaurant. We paid for halfboard. Breakfast were good, but dinners were awful, the quality of food was horrible. We were so disappointed about it that this fact ruined our holiday. Maybe we had a bad luck and the chef was ill, or I don´t know what happened. Also service in the restaurant wasn´t good, staff was rude. Apart from bad food. THe rooms and hotel was clean, other staff nice. I ordered massage, it was good. Location bad, as you have to use car or go on foot quite a long distance when you want to go somewhere.

Nice hotel in a great location - just a short walk from Strbske pleso lake. Spacious and well furnished rooms, large bathroom. Nice wellness with a pool, whirlpool and few saunas. Try the restaurant, the dinner was excellent. Breakfast buffet was good, too.

Very happy that we chose this hotel. It's perfect overall, there are just small details that could make a lot of difference. Big plus: - location - away from everything but still close to Strbske pleso - wellness - swimming pool, a lot of saunas (5ish different kinds) - wine bar - BIG shout out to the bartender/waiter - he could teach how to do this job and the wine selection which was enormous and to die for (was not able to decide which wine to choose) Slight improvements could be made: - front desk - it just takes too long to check in/check out - an electronic ID reader would help a lot. Also, why are they asking the guests if they had something from the minibar if they immediately call housekeeping to check if you are not lying? I am not making big deal out of it, but not asking is much better IMHO - restaurant - no vegetarian choice for dinner? really? beef, pork and fish one night, deer, veal and chicken the other? Is it too much to ask for pasta? or salad with some grilled cheese?

I have made reservation through hotel webpage which unfortunately I needed to cancel as my travel plans changed. The hotel charges 80% of the entire amount to make a reservation which is high compared to other webservices (such as booking.com & hotels.com) which did not charge you anything for the very same package . Also the price through booking portal is bit lower compared to booking directly through hotel webpage. Anyway - due to unavailability of the rooms on booking.com during the days requested I needed to go with their website which now I regret as I would have been charged null otherwise... and I would have been offered better cancellation policy. Anyway - when I requested cancellation I was eligible for full refund which up to day I haven't received despite receiving confirmation from the hotel. At 1st I was told I needed to provide a bank account details as the hotel cannot refund me directly to my debit card. Regardless of me sending it out to the hotel reception the next day - 13 days passed from the moment I have requested cancellation and the moneys aren't still returned to my banking account. The hotel reception also does not react to my email reminders... This is not the way how you should treat your guests (which after such experience I now doubt I would ever become)..
