“Thank you”
Reviewed April 12, 2009

After a 7-day peaceful therapeutical stay in your hotel i would like to take this opportunity to thank the kitchen staff for a high quality of meals and your waiting staff for a fast and professional service. Receptionists have been very helpful, all staff members very kind and ready to assist during the procedures, housekeepers have kept our room in excellent condition. We look forward to meeting you again!

I would like to praise the hotel personnel for an excellent customer service! All members of your staff (both females and males) have always, I repeat, always, greeted me when we met. Even though I tried to pay more attention to say Hello first. It might seem minor but in our hotels it is still not common. Thank you.

We wanted to stay in this spa town (Rajecké Teplice) just a few miles away from my newly-found relatives. The Aphrodite is a beautiful spa, however they would not book a weekend stay more than two weeks in advance, as they encourage longer stays and spa treatments. The Velka Fatra is attached to the Aphrodite via a walkway and advertises itself as a three star hotel, so I thought we'd be OK. Wrong!

Our first impression was a dark, dirty lobby in need of serious vacuuming. The stark, Soviet-style decor is the least of its problems. Then we got to our spartan room, again the carpet was filthy. The bathroom had been updated and was fairly clean though there was mildew in the corner of the shower. I can handle austere conditions as long as the room is clean and this was not. The window treatments consisted of thin, cloth vertical blinds which couldn't provide privacy at night nor light blocking in the morning. No thermostat in the room; spider webs hang from the tall ceiling. The beds are bolster-like with thin sheets stretched over. No mattress pads. No pictures on the walls; a small desk was provided but the advertised refrigerator was not working. No maid service occurred between day 1 and day 2.

Breakfast on Sunday featured undrinkable coffee, congealed poached eggs, barley/blood sausage, numerous fish selections, cereals, some fruit, some coffeecakes. We ate what looked OK and went next door to the Aphrodite coffee house for some real coffee. Breakfast on Monday was a little better. The reception and breakfast staff were helpful. Everyone appeared to be working hard.

Overall, the Velka Fatra was a depressing, dirty hotel that ruined my perception of central Slovakia.
