“Good hotel, nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Stayed here for 3 nights (special offers for 3 and 6 nights respectively). We generally enjoyed the services of the hotel. Rooms and beds are very good. We experience though some noise from neighbour rooms. The breakfast was included and was very nice. Hotel is some 15-20 minutes walk from the city centre
Wellness is included, but we did not make use of it. We learnt that there is a salt cave and that you can make use of it by booking some 15 minutes in advance (booking at reception).
Overall a very good stay, which we recommend others to repeat.

My initial impression of the Apollo was not good. I had rented a car and (being a non Slovak speaker) could not work out how to get in to the car park. Entry to and exit from the car park was frustrating htoughout my stay and on each occasion required me to wait while someone from the hotel had to come out and perform some "magic" to let me in or out. The hotel should pay what is necessary to get this fixed and have clear instructions in Slovak and English to help guests understand what they need to get in or out.

Having said that my daughters and I found the hotel staff very helpful and pleasant and willing to do whatever they could to make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. The rooms were clean, the food was good, the price was outstanding value for money and its location was pefect for my required mixture of business and pleasure.

I have to mention the steak I had there on my first night .... one of the tastiest I've ever had, anywhere in the world.

Room Tip: Choose a double, they're only a few euros more than a single. The single rooms are quite small...

We checked in this hotel 3 days ago. We parked in front of the hotel and when we asked at the reception, where told that oarking was pre paid for hotel residents. Room was clean and breakfast varied. Hotel is just circa 2km from centre so we could walk it, which usually took us about 30 min . Breakfast area was full of stuffed anomals as de orations which is a big minus! When we checked out, we found to our surprise that parking was not at all free and where charged a hefty Euro 9 per day! This left quite a bitter ending.

Dear customer,

Thank you very much for telling us our opinion. Regarding the parking in our spacious parking lot in front of our hotel, yes, this service is charged. We are trying to announce this information on every reservation portal, to give the right information to our customers. The reason for decoration of our restaurant is that our mail restaurant (which is also used as breakfast restaurant in the morning) is very famous for its game specialties, which is our specialization.
We are also happy to hear that you veer satisfied with other services of the hotel. One more time, thank you for your review. We wish you good luck, and are looking forward to welcome you again at Apollo Hotel in the future.
With kind regards,
Apollo Hotel Management

Comfortable place. Maybe not quite 4 stars but close and quite alright. Location is a half an hour walk from old town but very convenient for the bus station. We arrived by Eurolines bus from Wien airport and it stopped at the bus station from where it was only 5-10 minutes walk to the hotel. The surrounding area itself didn't seem like much but I heard that there would have been a big mall nearby. We didn't have the time or interest to go shopping though.

We had a family room which included 2 bedrooms. Another with double bed and another with twin beds. There was a flat screen TV in both rooms. WiFi connection in room was fast and solid.
Bathroom was ok. Nothing fancy but good and clean.

Breakfast was very good but the same restaurant in the evening maybe not so good. Very friendly and fast service and ok prices though.

Dear customer,
thank you very much for your opinion. We are pleased to hear that you were satisfied with our services – cleanliness, breakfast, free Wifi and quality of our employees. As you wrote – the location of the hotel is not directly in the city centre, but close to the mail bus station with the direct connection to Vienna. Regarding the hotel building and the surrounding area, we are going to renovate our facade from outside to have nicer first impression.
One more time, thank you for your review. We wish you good luck, and are looking forward to welcome you again at Apollo Hotel in the future.

I have spent one night here last week during my bussiness trip. Hotel is perfectly located, few minutes by public transport to the old town, which is by the way very impressive. It has great access from motorway. Breakfast is also amaizing, great choice of food, staff very helpfull. Rooms are very clean and modern, simple, cozy and bright and have great view to the city. Access for internet is free of charge and work perfectly. Also free parking available in front of the hotel.
Everything that you might need during your business trip you can find in Apollo hotel, comfortable and cozy rooms, free parking and wifi. Great breakfast and helpfull staff. I will stay again and strongly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor have great view of the city.
