“Nice restaurant with traditional and seasonal food”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

I've been positively suprised by the restaurant of this hotel. Traditional food a la card menu customised to autumn season. Food very very tasteful.
I was impressed by "Panorama floor" with all the perks and priority everywhere.
Location- convenient very closed to the center and very quiet area. Overall it is a great hotel to stay or dine in.

Room Tip: Panorama floor

My wife and me booked a HB stay and treatments for 6 nights. May be that we were in a different hotel from MR. Evinav because the food (breakfast and lunch) were very poor without any imagination. The public areas are untreated , enter the physician and nurse rooms and watch their tables and you will understand what means negligence of maintenance . May be that the management wants the guests to use the private restaurants in the hotel where the food is much more tasty but expensive.

Room Tip: not too far from elevator

I am a "repeater":-), I am staying in this hotel on a regular base, I am always very satisfied with provided services. The hotel rooms are well equiped, very good food, the services of sauna- and aqua-world are excellent. I really enjoyed my stay and came totally relaxed back home. I can only recommend this hotel. For the money you pay you get very good value.

We had a one week begining of September "Taste of Piestany" in the Balnea Esplanade full board and 3 treatments a day. For the price we paid the value which we got was very good. The hotel is very beautiful and has a very convenient location. To give an overview:
Rooms-
We had a deluxe room. Very good size and very tastefully decorated. The bathroom is huge & beautiful.
Food-
Perfect! We were really very positively surprised. Food was good. Great buffet and very very tasteful.
Service-
Very friendly and good staff in all service areas. The cleaning of the room was always on time & good. That was the only point which functioned.
Wellness & Spa
Spacious wellness area with an indoor & outdoor pool, indoor& outdoor chairs to relax, 3 different saunas, steam bath, theme pool. Very good offer for the size of the hotel. The treatments are mixed. It depends on the therapist. Some are very good, some are ok.
Location-
Very convenient. 5 Min. walk to the center and very quiet.
Overall it is a great hotel. We will absolutely come back and enjoy wellness, treatments , nice service and food

This is my fourth stay in city of piestany, I've always stayed at thermia palace, however this time I've decided for change to try baleanea palace. For sure it was a wrong decision! To begin with this hotel has several positive points:
Nicely located in front of big garden and green space, superior room was modern comfortable and newly renovated. Although phone was not working and wifi signal was weak.
On the negative side they surely have a problem with their staff! To begin with the reception staff: extremely rude, UN experienced staff with very poor language skills and very UN helpful and arrogant ! I asked the reception if they have any trips to Bratislava he said with anger: no go and search the net! I discovered later that the trips office just directly next to reception do arrange those trips .
Nursing staff are not the best as well and were UN capable of speaking any English and non cooperative as well.
The biggest crises was the dining room; worst food and beverage management I've ever seen. Bad on all aspects. Dirty table and spell over every where.Food was bad and had a cheap feeling, boufait was limited and repeated almost exactly the same every day! The worst selection of fruits and deserts, the worst cooked meals ,very very bad service and extremely disorganized , staff looked like trainees with no experience and some times with no manners as well. Refills never done on time, orders never filled on time, they often didn't even know what they were serving. Although the timings on the restaurant door announces that it is open yet long before the closing time you will find every thing empty and no thing left to eat.We spoke to the restaurant manager about the selection of food and he said yes we know about it !!! On a conclusion restaurant dirty and disgusting .
Speaking about medical treatments, I would say it is limited as we were not given some of it based on that we were staying less than 2 weeks.
As a result I found the place not really worth it . And the staff require plenty of training as their ruddiness is UN acceptable.
To add to it, late check out was not given despite availability and despite being a right for danubuis euro points card holder.
At the end the guest relation manager promised a discount for all the mess they caused for us but she didn't do any thing eventually.
Baleana palace never again. You would get much better option for 260€ a night. Just stay away.

If you really want to spend a calm and relaxing holiday in spa, choose this hotel. It is nice, with very good food and staff, in the beautiful surrounding. You can enjoy the warm pool, homemade cakes, refreshing drinks and have a walk in the park, which is nearby. After a week or only a week-end, you will come back to the world in another mood - you will forget the other rushy world.... I highly recommend this hotel and Piestany generally.

After some time I again visited Balnea Esplanade Palace spa in Piestany with couple of friends and it was again very pleasant and relaxing experience. The Hotel management did few improvements in the hotel since my last visit ..New Pool Side bar was a great addition to the pool, they have very good selection of beverages and snacks, only the Shawrma chicken was not really a Shawrma but it was tasty. The breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets were also great, good variety of food and tasty as well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel manager Mr. Bichler was around and personally look after the guests which was very nice touch. the room was spacious, clean and had all the amenities we needed. We loved the special home made sweets (strudla) it was excellent! we are planing to spend another weekend there very soon!
