"Beautiful lodging in a gorgeous mountain village"
Place looks very new and is in great condition, and the staff were very welcoming. No street sign was visible so we had to stop and ask for directions, and were lucky to find a local who spoke enough English to direct us to the place. It's advisable to make sure you have good directions, particularly if arriving at night, since there are very few places open at night where you could ask for directions. But once you find it you should be very happy. The scenery is amazing.

This accommodation was terrific and excellent value for money. Were there for 4 nights. We had an upstairs attic-style room which was spacious and comfortable with a view of mountains. Breakfasts were large and personally served in the breakfast room, and Marek the host was a mine of information on what to see and do in the mountains and surrounding areas, given in English and German as well as the native Slovak. His love of the area was apparent. There are 2 restaurants within easy walking distance of the hotel. Wish we could have stayed longer.

This is a really great hotel - some hotels are 5 star but don't live up to the billing. This hotel really meets the grade. Staff are wonderfully helpful (and almost universally English speaking) and the facilities are great. Make good use of the wonderful spa facilities while you're there. Food's great, views are great - basically it's all great. The village of Strbske Pleso is a bit of an Iron Curtain era monstrosity of civic planning, and it doesn't help that the skyline of imposing mountains is rather dominated by two abandoned ski jumps, but the lake (Pleso) itself is lovely, as are the High Tatra mountains that are right there. All the hikes are really well marked so give them a go.
Be aware that this is a 5 star hotel so a beer or G&T at the bar will be the same price as in a bar in London. If you're short on spending money, there are bars in the village and you can get a pint of local beer for 1 Euro!

We arrived late at night only to find out that the hotel hadn't received the customary notice email form Expedia about our stay. They weren't expecting us and were fully booked that night. In less than ten minutes the hotel's manager had arranged an upgraded room at a nearby, and presumably competing, hotel at no extra cost to us. His handling of the situation was exemplary and our experience was seamless despite the email issue. The next night we stayed at Fortuna as planned and the place was great, comfortable etc.

Very easy to find and convenient for Poprad. We needed a place for an overnight stay and were very happy with all aspects. Although breakfast was meant to be from 8.00am the owner (whose English is excellent) prepared a cooked breakfast for us at 7.00am as we needed to be away early and was generally very helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending this spot and wish we could have stayed longer.
