The place has excellent location, just a few meters from the main square of the city. The staff is extremely friendly, they were attending to any of our special needs, e.g. providing medical drugs, or fixing electricity issues immediately. The hotel is an old merchant building, it has steep stairs and no elevator - a real challenge to climb up... More

Levocha was all around disappointing, but the cold, rainy weather (45 degrees daytime high in mid June), probably had something to do with it. The hotel needs lots of updating. The room was very large and clean, but furnishings were worn and outdated. Decor ran towards really awful looking huge plastic flower arrangements. There are no elevators and getting our... More

Charming old-world hotel in architecturally beautiful and tidy walled town. Very close to town square, Cathedral of St. James and Master Pavol Museum. Lighted view of Maryanska Shrine visible from our rear bedroom window. Large soaking tub was welcome after a day's hiking at Spis Castle and Spisske Kapitula. There is no elevator, however, and this may be a problem... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful as we arrived late and the chef kept the kitchen open for us. The hotel decor is dated. Our room had plastic plants and a hand held shower over the bath. There was no lift and we had to go up some quite steep narrow steps. Our room only had skylights so I could... More

This was the best in terms of standard of room of the three places we stayed in during our trip to Slovakia. However it was also the most expensive though still cheap compared to UK prices. There is no doubt that this hotel needs a gentle makeover as it has seen better days but the room was clean and comfortable,... More

I was not expecting too much from this hotel so I did not get disappointed. The entire inside of the hotel could use a big face-lift. The room on the 1st floor (no lift) was OK with a hard bed, a very heavy cover and too flat pillow. There was a smell from the bad drainage in the bathroom that... More

More than a dozen years ago I stayed at the Barbakan and not much has changed since...There are other nicer hotels in Levoca but if you are travelling with a dog this will be the place where you will stay... Arriving on a VERY hot day we were given a room on the top floor, reached by a number of... More

We absolutely loved this one! It has a great location, easy to find, lovely staff, a good breakfast.. All in all it was a great experience. The room we had was lovely and very clean, it even had a big, huge bathtub, which was a nice change from all the tiny shower stalls in Europe. The only complaint we had... More

My cousin made all the reservations as he showed us Slovakia. Levoca is a heritage site and also has a church on the hill where Pope John Paul II said a mass for a million people. The hotel was a pleasant surprise. We had parking in the back but there is no elevator. Our room was on the second floor... More
