Having spend there only one night, I cannot judge much, but : - the rooms are nice and spacious, maybe a bit dated - food was ok - generally quiet. I just can't overcome the fact that the hotel seems completely out of place. It's too big, a huge eyesore and generally out of place for where it is. The... More

We were there many times on business conference. The hotel is situated in a valley from where you can easily reach both of the skiing centres, or go for a walk to the nature. The hotel is luxury, the food also very good. The only thing I missed there is a wellness, there are no saunas or a swimming pool.

The apartments are really large, well laid out and even include a walk-in closet. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is a nice size. The balcony is relatively small and unfortunately is not furnished. The two things that need fixing are- there is no air conditioning! The hotel is built with a heating system but no cooling system!!!... More

Lovely hotel, close to slopes but such a shame the bar staff routinely add drinks to your bill. First night thought was a mistake, but second night come on!! It really is a nice place, food is nice staff are friendly but watch your bill.

Stayed just one night at this hotel in the begining of December for business purposes.

This hotel is really one of the best I stayed in Slovakia. It has beautiful rooms, great food, very good service. I have been there twice and would go there again. It's a guarantee of a great stay. It is also very nice for a family vacation as they have beautiful kid's playroom close to the reception.
