“Beware booking a luxury room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

We had booked two months in advance, a luxury double room for three nights, as we were attending a wedding. The room had two single beds, placed far apart at right angles in an L shaped room. No hairdryer, minimal toiletries, small bath towels. There was no seating area as shown in the photographs on the website, and the layout was cramped. We could not change rooms as the hotel was full. We were offered a minimal reduction, after some haggling. Renovations downstairs, meant we had to trek all over the building to locate the breakfast room. The only plus point was the comfortable mattresses. We managed to find alternative accommodation after one night at a lovely small hotel at half the price and double the luxury.

This hotel is at the old square..and if you like church bells this is the place for you!
Our room was fine, but with little room to move about..too much stuff in a small space.
Ditto for the bathroom.
Elevator and internet available.
Reception staff were efficient and access to varied restaurants was good.
A short walk to railway station, not a problem. (Beware of the "gypsies" around these stations.!)
A pleasant two night stay.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2006

We were on a driving holiday from Hungary to Poland and everywhere in between!! We loved Slovakia and everything about it. There was extremely heavy snow when we were there and perhaps it might have been better to wait for good driving conditions but the snow just added to the beauty of the whole trip. We stumbled across the Hotel Grand late in the evening, no advance booking made we hoped for the best. We were greeted by a very friendly guy at reception. He gave us prices and showed us the standard room, it was clean and basic but we were looking for something special (it was my birthday). For an extra £15 or so (They are open to some haggling!! ) we were offered a top floor suite with large bedroom, separate lounge and large bathroom with double Jacuzzi bath.......there was no comparison between the rooms. We had beautiful views over the streets from our balcony. The room was spotless clean, we had a problem getting hot water through on one occasion and called reception, within minutes there was someone to the room and sorted it straight away. Breakfast was basic but nice, there are a few good bars around the town and good restaurants too. Car parking was limited but we got a space also the hotel can be hard to find, we followed the signs as you come into town but ended up doing a few laps before we found it down the narrow road. We were supposed to only stay 1 night but stayed 2 as we loved Zilina and cannot wait to return and will definitely stay in the Hotel Grand again.

We stayed 3 nights at the Hotel Grand in Zilina (about 100 miles from Bratislava). The hotel was reasonable value (£55 per night B&B) but be wary of the 3 star+ rating. There aren't even hairdryers and toiletries comprised a small sachet of shampoo. The so-called double room we were given had 2 single beds in separate corners of the room. They did then give us a much better suite when we complained. Breakfast was a bit hit and miss. Lots of things on the buffet had run out by 8am. Still on the last day I was offered individually prepared scrambled eggs. The previous 2 days' creations had bacon in them - Slovakians are not hot on vegetarians! Slovakia is a wonderful country - cheap and relatively undiscovered - just be prepared to negotiate if you're not happy. Also be wary of the hard core porn on the TV - there for all to see at any time
