Great hotel right in the central square in Banska. The staff are helpful and friendly. Rooms are big and while they don't have aircon, rooms are equipped with fans, which can be a nicer option. Breakfast is perfectly fine, with really good coffee.

This is a great hotel right on the town square. When we were there, in September, it was blissfully peaceful. The hotel is staffed by lovely, friendly and very helpful people. Very efficient check in and check out. Breakfast had a huge range and lots of it. I have no idea why a previous reviewer was disappointed - what on earth did they want? A previous reviewer moaned that there was no elevator, and yes, if you were immobile that would be a problem, but the stairs are wide and gentle. (1 guest whilst we were there had clearly had a stroke, and he manged fine). Not steep at all. It was easy to find - it has a name plate on the front of the square. 15 minute walk from the railway station and 'Mesta' station is about 5 minutes if your train stops there. The room was large, spacious, lots of drawers and cupboards to put things away and a really comfortable bed. Great shower. As well as all the positives - stupidly I left something behind. Very kindly - it is now on it's way to the UK. Yes, I would recommend this hotel to a friend, and I'd go back. Friendly, warm, clean, comfortable, quiet, great breakfast ...... ALL good.

We visited BB after a week hiking in the High Tatras. We travelled by train from Poprad which was comfy, cheap and very scenic. Hotel is 10 ish mins walk into town from 'BB Mestro' station we discovered later so we left BB from there after our stay. We walked to Arcade from the main BB station when we arrived, that took 25 mins partly because we were not sure where to go (no maps at the station and we do not use smart phones) locals were v helpful. Hotel is easy to find once on the beautiful NP square it is next to the big fountain with a cafe in front. Next door to the museum and the tourist office. Enter down the side or through the back of the hotel's own cafe which has tables on the square. Easy check in, massive room with lots of floor space, storage & hanging space and a fridge. Tea and coffee and a kettle. We had a huge firm really comfy bed. Good reading lights on either side - essential! Great shower, good toiletries and towels which were replaced / changed daily. Hair dryer provided. Huge TV which we did not use! Room quiet and got nice morning sun. Warm enough and easy to open windows for cool fresh air. 206. There was a fan but we did not need it. Stairs may be a challenge if you struggle with mobility or have a suitcase the size of a 4wd but they are very wide and not steep at all, with a good banister to hold on to. Breakfast was excellent. Huge choice of the usual cereals, fruit fresh and dried, cooked stuff, cheeses and cold meats, croissants, a selection of breads, lots of teas, juices, water. Fresh coffee of whatever style you prefer. If this selection is not enough for anyone I think there must be something wrong with them! Excellent traditional Slovak pub/restaurant right next door you can eat in the garden at lunchtime we enjoyed yummy garlic soup outside and we ate downstairs in their cellar restaurant at night highly recommended as well (separate outfit from Arcade) All this for half the cost of a comparable hotel in the UK.

The rooms in the hotel are amazing. Very spacious and if you’re lucky enough to get a square facing room they’re huge, was really impressed with them. There’s two things that really let the hotel down and it’s probably why I haven’t given it 5 stars. There’s no elevator in the hotel, annoying carrying 2 big bags up 2 floors. There’s no air con in the hotel, it was 30plus degrees the 4 days we where there and all we had was a fan keeping us cool. As I’ve said, the rooms are great just 2 things let the hotel down. On a smaller issue, there’s limited irons and only one ironing board, which can be an issue when there’s a high demand. It really was a nice hotel just the lack air con in that heat was tough going, I could have lived without the elevator but just added to the strain.
