The Hrabovo Apartments is a modern apartment style hotel located in a small Slovakian city of Ruzemborok. The hotel complex is located at the foot of the mountain with a cable car lift within a minute walk. It is situated on a water reservoir and surrounded by pine trees. During summers you can rent mountain bikes and go on mountain trails. There is a system of ropes weaved through the pine trees nearby, which allows you to have a Tarzan like experience of swinging through the trees. As a matter of fact, it is called "Tarzanka" and is located right outside of the hotel. You also could sunbathe near the water reservoir and take a swim there. Kids could play in a play area equipped with a swing, slide, and a sandbox, while adults could make some bbq in the nearby picnic area. We took a cable car lift on the top of the Malina mountain and walked through the meadows, had a coffee in a charming lodge restaurant, and watched the kids play in a nice playground nearby. The hotel offers the access to the gym and spa. Various types of massages (Thai, honey, hot stones) are available upon request. Parking is available free of charge either in a parking spot or indoor garage. Each building of the hotel has an elevator. There is a small outdoor cafe on the premises, which we did not like, as the worker ignored our presence and started serving a large group of Slovakian kids. We voted with our feet, but the cafe has its fair share of customers and free WiFi. So if you have patience, it could be good.
We booked a two bedroom apartment, which turned out to be very spacious and modern. The master bedroom has a separate access to the large deck, which has a beautiful prospect towards the lake. The furniture is very nice and modern. The kitchen is big and has a dining area. It is equipped with a stove, microwave, and a fridge. A large Tesco is located within a minute drive from the hotel, so you could stock up and cook your food in the apartment. The sitting room has a large flat screen TV with a number of Slovakian, English, and Russian channels. The Internet is free if you bring your own cable or you could rent it from the hotel for 5 euros. You could also rent a baby crib for 10 euros a night. The staff speaks decent English ( we did not have any problems). They allowed us to check out after the official 10 am deadline. A couple of peculiarities about this hotel is that you are responsible for taking out your trash, washing dishes, and emptying the fridge upon the check out. Bring your own shampoo or soap as the hotel provides only towels and tp. Otherwise, it is very-very modern and comfortable.
In winter you can enjoy all winter recreation sports. We were there during the summer, so we toured an absolutely charming Oravsky Castle and a picturesque Liptovska Mara Lake. There are a couple of huge hot springs water parks in the area perfect for families with kids or someone who would like to be invigorated by local mineral waters.
This area of Slovakia is very picturesque and has the Switzerland mountainous feel to it for the fraction of a price.
