Review of Penzion Franko, not Hotel Franko
Our trip to Zvolen was to attend a karate seminar, and we chose this pension because it was near the university training hall and next door to the Hotel Franko, where our master was staying. We stayed for one week, and found the accommodation to be comfortable and good value for money, with great service from the staff.
The two Frankos share the Franko restaurant, which serves traditional Slovakian dishes and also an extensive range of pizzas for dine in, takeaway or delivery. A decent and plentiful breakfast is served from the restaurant to guests of both locations.
The location was very convenient for anyone wishing to be near the main visitor attractions, just off the main plaza. It was an easy 15 minute roll with our bags from the bus stop / train station.
The room was tidy & the bed quite comfortable. No elevator, air con, or fridge (as at somewhat pricier Franko Hotel next door), and no kettle, but this is quite normal in Europe. The shower was hot, with good pressure, and the wifi was reliable. For more mod cons, stay at the adjacent hotel, which our friends reported as being quite good.
We enjoyed our stay and would gladly return.
