“Excellent hotel. Really five stars.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Excellent hotel. These five stars. Large rooms with expensive furniture and accessories. The bathroom has a large bath and a large shower, branded cosmetics "Kempinski". Very comfortable and large beds. Throughout the hotel offers high-speed wi-fi internet. Helpful personal. Especially liked the area SPA. In hotel large swimming pool with Jacuzzi. Huge windows overlook the lake basin. We were at the hotel in the winter and it was pleasant to watch the blizzard outside, swimming in the warm pool. Also in the area SPA has two types of saunas, contrast douches, salt room. All of these services are included in the price (free). Luxury breakfast also included in the price.
The only drawback of the hotel - it is the high price of food and drinks at the restaurant. In the village Strbsko Pleso you can dining is 2-3 cheaper than in the hotel.

Room Tip: All rooms in hotel is very good!

Beautiful hotel, fantastic location and service. The spa is the best I've been to so far. The breakfast was a stunner too. Our room was H U G E by the way, and was facing the lake and the mountains. Not a single bad word I could have.

The hotel staff was incredibly helpful. They found us numerous transport options for our transfer to Budapest following our stay, and even repaired a broken stroller tire for another member of our group. The facilities are amazing, and the wellness center is first class. My wife really enjoyed her massage and the price was very reasonable. Christmas dinner was slightly overpriced, but the atmosphere and service made up for it. Free shuttle service to the slopes made a day of snowboarding easy. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra to get a lake/mountain view. It's worth it.

Good hotel, high quality service, good rooms. Location a little disappointing, but the views of the mountains compensated. I recommend this hotel for those who appreciate quality. The reception staff are knowledgeable and helpful.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

My wife and I have spent ten days during the last year Christmas season in this lovely hotel with unsurpassed view on the Strbske Pleso lake and majestic mountains all around it. We were given a very nice suite with full view of the lake and the majestic mountains surrounding it on all sides.

The service offered to the guests of the Kempinski High Tatras is exemplary, on all levels of the hotel staff. The rooms are very well looked after, spotlessly clean and quiet. The furnishing of the rooms leaves something to be desired (we are talking five stars hotel!) - but I believe that this will be attended as the time (and demands) grows in this still rather "undiscovered" region.

The same applies to the hotel restaurant. The food is correct - but far from being able to be referred to as "gourmet cuisine". During our stay (we have eaten in the hotel restaurant every day - often twice a day), the quality of the preparation clearly varied according to the person in charge of the kitchen. In the ward and friendly hotel bar, the few local dishes served non-stop were always appetising - and the bar staff perfect in every respect. A duo of local musicians provide nice background music in the evenings, creating a pleasant atmosphere in the room.

People, who are seeking a perfection comparable to the best mountain hotels, such as Palace Hotel in Gstaad or similar gems, will be disappointed. However, judging by local criteria, Hotel Kempinski High Tatras undoubtedly offers the best choice in the Tatras mountains.

Room Tip: Any of the suites facing the lake are the choice number one!

Located next to the wonderful Strbske Pleaso lake this property offers you breathtaking view of the Tatras on one side and lake on the other side. Go for an early morning walk around the lake before you sit down for your breakfast. Go up to the watch tower to get another view of the lake and Tatras

I loved their small library with windows overlooking the lake and the paintings on the theme of Ski.

Room Tip: Choose the Lake view rooms

One of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Beautiful rooms and friendly staff - although a little bit more of a smile from waiters wouldn´t hurt :) Rooms are beautiful and I have to say that even a "valey view" situated rooms have gorgeous view - mornings and evenings sitting on a balcony watching breathtaking scenery were the best parts of the day. Breakfast was great - wide selection of food and set in a wonderful Grand restaurant. Also wellness centre is lovely to visit - great for relax .

The only minus was the fact that during the cleaning the plates in our room weren´t taken away.

All to all I can only recommend this hotel.:)

Room Tip: " Come during the week - hotel is usully more quiet :) "
