The hotel is just in the center of the historic town. The rooms were huge and very nice decorated. Basically all the hotel is restored very nicely. We had rooms facing the pedestrian zone which were great. View from the bedroom was spectacular. Restaurants and pubs just in front and near hotel. Breakfast was adequate. Parking is at the back...

This hotel is just off the main square. The rooms were quite modern but very spacious and comfortable. There are a number of common areas in the hotel if you just don't want to stay in your room. Staff are friendly, speak and understand English well.

I absolutely loved staying at this hotel. There is free parking around the back, the people on reception were friendly and helpful and the location can not be beaten. The moment you step outside you are on the main square. On arrival we were immediately asked what kind of room we would like. The room we chose, (Room 100) we... More

This hotel is really nice and clean.The receptionist was polite and helpful. It´s good location right on Trieda SNP Square but it is really hard to find an entry to reception. They don´t have any navigation from square as you can see on my second picture. I would recommend hotel owner to put just one navigation desk from square to... More

Banská Bystrica is a perfect stay on your way to and from Tatry. The perfect hotel in Banská Bystrica is the Arcade Hotel located in the square of the town. The location could not be better, it is close to all restaurants and places of interest. The hotel itself is located in an ancient building and very well maintained. Everything... More

This hotel provides good accommodation in a delightful small town in central Slovakia. The rooms are clean and well-appointed. Breakfast is okay, although somewhat skimpy. Tripadvisor has the name of the hotel wrong--it is the Arcade Hotel.

My family of 5 was given a suite of 3 connecting room, with 2 bathrooms. We had plenty of room to spread out and relax. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. I read some of the previous reviews with complaints of exceptionally hard beds, but that was not my experience. The beds, though not particularly soft, were fine. Our room... More
