    There was no shower curtain so you have to shower sitting or mess up the whole bathroom.

    Good located for all hiking trips. Train is really close and hiking trails as well. Breakfast is okay but nothing special. Rooms are simple and enough for some days to sleep. There is a pool-table and you hang out at the "bar". We did not have diner there. There was really good polish food in the village.

    Nothing to complain :)

    Boheme, huge clean rooms with authentic, rustic common spaces. Great breakfast and nice staff. Nothing to complain about (shower/bath tub in the center of the huge bathroom without any curtain was a bit odd but manageable). Next to Villa was a Welness spa -hotel with a decent swimming pool/sauna-section with a price of 12€ which was great after a long hiking and climbing in Tatras

    The shower was in the bath but there was no shower curtain so to avoid getting water everywhere we had baths rather than showers. The staff on duty for our first couple of days could not speak much English, although the website said they did; this made communication difficult and the reception was not as warm as one usually receives at a B&B.

    Good sized room in an attractive and enjoyable, though somewhat tired, traditional house.

    The room was dusty. The cold tap on the bath was marked as hot. When we complained there was no hot water for a shower, we were told that the hotel was old and you just had to run the water for a long time. After 15 minutes, we gave up....... It was only when we tried running the cold tap the next morning that we realised that the taps were the wrong way round. When we pointed this out to reception we didn't receive any apology, just the same comment about the hotel being old. Please make sure that others are aware of this irritation.

    The food was ample and very nice. The lounge and dining room were very pleasant.

    Feels like an old country lodge.
    • Leisure trip

    • Single Room
    • Stayed 3 nights

    Breakfast juices could have been better, but overall the breakfast was reasonable. Wish the guest house had been closer to the main skiing areas of Tatranska Lomnica and Strbske Pleso, but not hard to jump on the electric train and in about 15 minutes you are there. Not a great selection of restaurants near by, although the one about 3 minutes away (sorry can't remember its name) was great. The guest house did evening meals but didn't eat there so can't comment.

    Lovely deep bath tub and great Wi-Fi. The staircase is all wooden and classy. The whole place has the feel of an old comfortable country lodge. I was worried about noise as my room was right by the staircase, but to be honest it wasn't an issue. So close to Novy Smokovec station only 2 minutes away.

    Nicely modernized bathroom but no shower curtain, so everything get wet. Paper thin walls between the rooms, so you hear talking and walking neighbours. Sun deck (terrace) without sun beds or deck chairs (two plastic tables with ordinary chairs don't make it nice to use). The whole place needs some refurbishing, though one can live without it. Road sign (direction) needed very much.

    Veryriendly staff. Good breakfast (except watered orange juice). Possibility to order supper. Kitchen available for guests. Old fashion building. Not too big. Nice view.

    During the night is pretty cold, so you should ask an extra blanket. The building is an old one, so don't expect to be a fancy hotel. But the general aspect is very nice, rustic I can say.

    It was a very nice location. It is close to train station 2-3 min walking, the food is very good and the staff friendly. For those who want a nice place to stay, not expensive, I recommend it.

    Oustandingly helpful and kind staff. We went there off-season, so for a few days we were the only ones there. Nevertheless, service was impeccable, breakfast had great range even for just us two (for example freshly made scrambled eggs on demand). The keepers (a married couple) where always at our disposal with a smile and helpful hints for our activities. Great 1920s central European aristocracit atmosphere with spacious rooms and apartments and nicely decorated and equipped common areas. Location is great, great view, restaurants, railway station, ski resorts etc. nearby. Very quiet and relaxing in off-season.
