“Balnea Esplanade Palace Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

I recently had the pleasure of stopping at this hotel for breakfast. I was greeted warmly by the helpful staff and showed to a table, where straight away I was offered coffee and juice. The food selection was excellent with a wide variety for all palates, including continental and cooked. The selection of fresh fruit was especially notable as was the cold cuts. Throughout the dining experience I was continually asked if I would like more coffee or if there was anything the staff could do to enhance my meal. Overall I would rate the breakfast service to a high standard and would recommend it to anyone interested in staying at the hotel.

Spent a weekend there in February and the hotel delivered what was expected and even more. The building is modern, the rooms are very nice, and the largest positive factor is the very friendly staff. Food in the restaurant is also good and we appreciated the excellent selection of quality Slovak wines.

We arrived in a large group in early January and were immediately impressed by the facade of the hotel. Our group was then welcomed into the impressively spacious reception area (including vintage cars) where helpful and courteous staff processed our large check-in with each language and without delay.
The hotel is set in wonderful expansive parkland grounds which are ideal for walking, running or just wandering.
The indoor and outdoor pool (connected) with jacuzzi and whirlpool was a fantastic experience- swimming in hot water as snow fell from above was great!
The hotel has a number of restaurants and bars and our evening meal was excellent. Our large and international group enjoyed a great selection of local and international cuisine and every dish was perfect. Again, the serving staff and bar staff were faultless - extremely pleasant and courteous. Nothing was any trouble.
I would recommend Balnea Esplanade Palace as a great getaway location for total relaxation.

I stayed at the hotel late January as part of an annual regional meeting with Krombacher. We were a large group and, amazingly (said from experience), all the rooms were prepped and ready to go for all of us. The check in process was another faultless process and organising the operation for such a large group was made a lot easier by such efficient staff at the hotel. They were also incredibly friendly and attentive, having cold pints served to us with perfect timing upon our arrival. Between them the front desk staff also spoke a multitude of languages to a high proficiency which made any enquiry from our very international group easy to deal with. These requests were also dealt with in a professional and enthusiastic manner - an attitude that set a precedent we experienced throughout the stay.

The hotel itself was wonderfully comfortable - the rooms were of a high standard, and their presentation showed an attention to detail often not seen. Beds were exceptionally comfortable and the bathroom was clean and extra warm with tower heaters. The reception lobby itself was impressively radiant and expansive, which added to the welcoming ambiance.

Facilities within the grounds were outstanding with a large complex of various shops and captivating boutiques. The spa deserves separate commendation; with a vast collection of choices - and a relaxing mud wrap graciously included in our stay - the treatments were carried out to meet the high standards we were by now accustomed to.

Food, thankfully, was another highly positive point. Wonderful presentation aside, the quality and amount of food could satisfy even the most particular eaters. The kitchen provided an an ample stream of food appropriate for the cold winter outside which was served with incredible timing and precision given the size of our group (and thus the logistical complexity of our service).

If I visited with my partner or alone, I’d speak very highly of the hotel and its staff, happily recommending it to anyone who inquired. However, given the size of the group I was traveling with, I cannot praise the friendliness, professionalism and comfort afforded to us enough! An incredible experience I’ll not soon forget.

Pleasantly surprised with the hotel. Even though it is older hotel, all this little minuses was just erased by friendliness of the employees. Stayed only for short time so had no chance to see all what hotels offers.
Food for breakfast was up to my expectation. Service was fast and efficient. After long day out it was nice to relax in coffee shop with cup pf coffee and especially with that strudel.
Would definitely come back with family

Have spent Valentine in Balnea Esplanade Palace with my husband. Entry of the hotel is nice hovever when you get inside you do have feeling you traveled back in time. but have to say we could see some reconstruction next to reception going on. Staff was nice and healpfull. Food at our dinner was tasty and even the decorations on the tables in the restaurant was nice and tastefull. Breakfast food quality an variaty was ok but would be nice to "freshen up" the styĺe of the presentation, Over all "old looking" building was compensated with warm aproach of the staff.
