I absolutely loved staying at this hotel. There is free parking around the back, the people on reception were friendly and helpful and the location can not be beaten. The moment you step outside you are on the main square. On arrival we were immediately asked what kind of room we would like. The room we chose, (Room 100) we... More

They don´t have any navigation from square as you can see on my second picture. I would recommend hotel owner to put just one navigation desk from square to... More

Banská Bystrica is a perfect stay on your way to and from Tatry. The perfect hotel in Banská Bystrica is the Arcade Hotel located in the square of the town. The location could not be better, it is close to all restaurants and places of interest. The hotel itself is located in an ancient building and very well maintained. Everything... More

This hotel provides good accommodation in a delightful small town in central Slovakia. The rooms are clean and well-appointed. Breakfast is okay, although somewhat skimpy. Tripadvisor has the name of the hotel wrong--it is the Arcade Hotel.

My family of 5 was given a suite of 3 connecting room, with 2 bathrooms. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. I read some of the previous reviews with complaints of exceptionally hard beds, but that was not my experience. The beds, though not particularly soft, were fine. Our room... More

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.

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
