Suite on the 3rd floor without lift is better for younger people. Room furniture is nice but nothing special. There is everything you need, also TV, phone and small fridge. I slept very well thanks to very comfortable mattress. Breakfast is very tasty, staff is really friendly and helpful. And it´s a dog-friendly hotel!

The hotel has a very good location and nice stuff. Our room had windows ending on a balcony, where other guests passed by, so we had to use the curtains. There were many signs of the fact, that the hotel needs renovation and more money from the owners: no glass on the hot tube (only pvc curtain, broken lamp etc),...

24 hour easy going staff. Breakfast was great. We were only planning on staying one night but ended up staying for three. Room was beautifully finished with lovely towel arrangement. Only complaint was the shower rose was too low and the hot water took a long time to come.

This hotel has very friendly staff, rooms are adequately furnished, the location is nice in the centre of Banska Stiavnica. The internet is only available via wi-fi, which, however, only works in the rooms close to the reception. Also, there are other small issues - the room was not perfectly clean on arrival, at breakfast we were once given milk...

I am giving this 2 star hotel a rating of four based on the fact that it was well situated, clean and the staff was outstanding. The rooms are old and dated. The beds are a little thin and worn, but staff will bend over backwards to make you stay pleasant. The cafe is also very excellent for breakfast or...

The hotel is well situated in the lovely town but that's the only good thing about it. The rooms, though big, are poorly cleaned (or not at all), the personnel is unpolite, the breakfast is a joke.

Nice building from the outside. The room I had (a large room just under the roof) was spacious. Not exactly stylish and felt slightly musty, but adequate. Breakfast - a choice from a menu (scrambled eggs etc.), nothing special. Staff was not very communicative, pay your bill sir and go, bye! It was okay but the nearby Grand Hotel Matej...
