Popped in here for lunch while passing on business. I was a really unusual hotel restaurant where time appears to have stopped in the 1950's. The food really enjoyable and the service was excellent, the recommended local red wine was very nice. I would highly recommend this hotel for lunch or dinner so others can experience the unusual ambiance and... More

This review is based on a number of visits to the Restaurant at "Hotel academic". The first thing that everybody should know is that Hotel academic and its various restaurants and bars are part of a institution that trains young Slovak students in all aspects of the Hospitality and catering business. Those that serve you are all Learning.. and for... More

You can be sure that this place can surprise you the way you would not expect...One day you feel great and the other you feel unwelcome.The point is that the staff here is so complicated...You can feel lack of management work here and lack of staff training...

This hotel is run, we believe, in order to train students from the local Catering Section of the Technical University. Therefore the level of service varies between excellent and disinterested. One exception: the outside dining area, where the teacher/floor manager does an excellent job and somebody in the kitchen(s) also. Breakfast can be pretty chaotic, so be prepared to fry... More

Just returned from what was a lovely long Weekend, for a friend's wedding. Was very suprised at how cheap and good this place was. It's worth noting it's like a training school for hospitality so sometimes a little slow but very good. If I had a bad point about it, it had no air conditioning and it was 36 degrees... More

Everything you want from a business traveller's room. Clean, all amenities that you really need (and luckily no fancy stuff nobody really wants), super-fast wireless connection easy to connect to and a great restaurant with good food and good service. And all for a reasonable cost! When back in Zvolen, this will be the place for me.

Very fair price for value hotel, with amazing breakfast offer. Short walk from the city centre. During summer ask for air conditioned room, cause not all of them are equiped. Anyway - RECOMMENDED, BEST IN ZVOLEN!

Stayed for 3 nights. My room was reasonably sized and the bed comfortable. This isn't the Ritz but given the price for the room and a good breakfast, there are really no complaints. Good location for the city centre and free parking on site together with reliable internet access (free). My only comment is that the staff should smile a... More

Hotel is a short walk from the town center, where there is a large plaza and shopping center. Hotel accommodation offers new rooms, which include flat-screen TV, private bathroom and toilet. The room has a minibar. The room was very spacious, clean and modern. The hotel has free Wi-Fi and private parking in the courtyard, as well free of charge.... More

I was there in Zvolen for work and I stayed there. Unfortunately it hasn't aircondition (like the other hotels as I heard) and the town was very hot... Our room was in the attic and the windows were up so we had problem to sleep at the night... Maybe the other rooms were been better. Medium service also...
