This hotel looked a real bargain when booking, and if you are looking for a business style hotel it probably does reflect that value. However, the hotel is a good walk from the city centre and the service provided by the staff is ponderous, slow and dissatisfactory. The rooms themselves are big and clean enough, but lack a real spark.

Room Tip: Pick one in another hotel!

This hotel was really cheap, but really nice. Staff lovely and very helpful. Free shuttle bus to centre.
Downside: It's far away from the centre - and be careful coming back in a taxi at night, we were charged 15euro by a taxi driver - the same journey had cost 3.50 earlier that day. Very annoying. Also we booked a taxi to the train station for 7.15 on the morning of our departure and it didn't show up, another had to be phoned and we were lucky to make the train.
Our room was lovely, nice beds and bathroom, tv with some English language channels, fridge with some complementary water and coke, free wifi.
Breakfast wasn't included in our room - it is very expensive at 13euro each so wouldn't really recommend if not included. The dining room is worth a look tho for all of the stuffed animals and heads!!
Guests can use the fitness suite and the salt cave for free although we didn't get a chance as stayed only 1 night.
Overall would recommend this hotel.

A really good value hotel with clean well furnished rooms and helpful staff. The free mini-bar contained a bottle of water and Coca Cola! There's a 2 euro breakfast of croissant and coffee/tea if you don't want the full works and a really lovely dining room with good food. Only downside is the walk to the town - it's a 'boring' 20 minute walk. Taxi charges varied from 5 to 12 euros, it's probably best to agree price before starting if possible. There is an evening shuttle service to the town, but it never seemed convenient/avaliable and had to be booked ahead.

We booked Apollo hotel as a four star fully rennovated and good located hotel in a very reasonable price for its stars. Well it wasn't quite as we expected. When we arrived the two receptionists tried to help us but they were confused with our reservation via internet and spent about 15-20 mins until they manage to arrange our 4-bed room. Well it wasn't a 4-bed but a 3 bed and one matress on the floor that I personaly used and wasn't the best sleep I ever made at all! I'd been waiting something better of a four star hotel than that, that's for sure. The glass elevator was on the outside wall and was freezing all the way up! The internet was broken and never fixed after the first night. And at last the breakfast was far too expensive at 13,50 euro per person and we didn't pay for it. I forgot to mention that on the second and last night there, the electricity went down about 21:00 (no generator existed) and we were about 15 mins in the dark, the same happened the day before as we were told.
As for the advantages, the one receptionist (sorry I don't remember her name) was very friendly and helpful, the location was perfect not center located but about 1,5 km from the town center with a parking at 9 eu/day that was what we wanted as we were travelling by car. The cleanliness was also very good. And as for a last tip, there was a cafe (Tipcafe I think) at the corner round the hotel that provided us cheap coffee, free wi-fi and also a beautiful but no-smiling waitress! We visited it about 3 times in one and a half day!
In generally I could consider staying at Apollo Dukla hotel again (hopefuly they will lower the breakfast pricing!) but surely not in a 4 persons room!

Room Tip: If you are over 3 persons book 2 rooms, the 4 person is sleeping on the floor!
