Our beds were beautiful to look at BUT Impossible to sleep on since they truly were like a heavy plywood board covered with wires, with absolutely NO give. Bring a Foamy if you plan to sleep here. We had one of the rooms facing the square, Extraordinary luxury for a historic Building, thebath room completely modern with a massive sink... More

What a lovely hotel. Perfect for famillies and couples it is in an ideal location being next to the main square. We really enjoyed our stay. Exepecially the view of the square in the morning. Not sure about the swimming pool. We were not aware it had one.

Nice hotel! Great location. Nice historical building. Unusually large rooms very comfortable, clean and silent. Very kind and communicative staff. Stairs and a part of interior was under obviously reasonable but small reconstruction but nothing annoying, everything was in order. It is obvious that owners invest in the hotel and that is good. I can recommend. and interesting gift at... More

The hotel is located in the center of the city, making it a short walk from most of the good restaurants in BB. The rooms are clean and newly renovated, however they didn't give me a "warm," "comfortable" hotel room feeling. The hotel was rather empty, and the hallways were used for storage of unused furniture/service items. Keep in mind... More

Excellent location in the city center. Nice, old historical building, but without elevator, and no assistance with carriyng luggage. So if your suitcase is heavy like mine was, I reccomend a room on first floor. Also, it was very noicy at night, there are a few cafes nearby, so be sure to ask for a room on back side of... More

Very good location in the heart of the city, close to the train station (in walking distance). Lots of restaurants and bars nearby the hotel. The hotel itself is clean, rooms are nice, the staff is friendly. Free wifi. No hair-dryer in the room. Breakfast looks good, but was not very rich. The bread as a gift was very nice... More

The Arcade Hotel in the heart of Banska Bystrica is situated directly in an old nice building on the market place, with a lovely surrounding. We got a big room, with separate living room, which was clean and nice, even though not quite modern. Reception staff was nice, but the buffet in the breakfast room was not filled up (already...

1 star for a very good location in the town centre. 2 stars for letting us wait with no one at the reception desk for 15 minutes without so much of an apology when someone else could have easily filled in.

Enjoyable stay in the heart of Banska Bystrica near to the square, musical fountain, bars and cafes. The hotel is reasonably well appointed with clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast at extra charge can either be taken in the restaurant or the adjoining cafe. Our preference was for freshly filled rolls and coffee in the hotel cafe. A real treat is... More
