“Fantastic place to stay!”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

We wanted to get away from it all with the whole family and were not disappointed. We took the car up to the hotel with the special permit which is very easy to arrange with the hotels help. Slight misunderstanding about room allocation was readily resolved by the reception staff. Room was very nice and spacious. The whole building had a very nice friendly feel with a pool table and ping pong. Very nice food and drinks selection. Best point to start a lot of hiking trips, we did the one to Rysy and it was worth the climb.Would come again.

For the price we paid ($75 per night for two people, one room) I was disappointed with Horsky Hotel Popradske Pleso. The room is very basic, like a private room at a hostel with two twin beds and basic linens. My husband, who is Slovak, called it a "turisticka ubytovna" or tourist's dormitory. The shower door was covered in a thick layer of brown mold. We're used to roughing it, having spend the previous three nights in simple accommodations. But for the price we paid, we asked for a new room, which they provided, and was moderately better. The price of the room does not include breakfast. (For comparison, we recently spend $40 per night in Prague for a better room and breakfast included.)

The hotel restaurant is also very basic, with cafeteria-style counter service. The dinners were unexceptional and expensive ($8-$10), but the homemade strudel and marinated cheese was excellent and we enjoyed some nice draft beer. For breakfast they served a variety of options, again quite overpriced for what it was.

The Popradske Pleso is one of the most gorgeous lakes in the High Tatras. Hike there for a day trip to walk around the lake and visit the symbolic cemetery of people who died in the mountains - very fascinating! Treat yourself to a beer or coffee and a strudel. But then pack up and head to one of the higher chatas (chalets) for a cheaper, more interesting stay or head back to Strbske Pleso for more options.

Horsky Hotel can charge hefty prices because they're the only hotel on the Popradske Pleso. To them this means they don't have to try very hard.

We spent a night at Horsky Hotel before heading to Rysy's peak, and this place was perfect for this kind of trip. It takes 1 hour by walk to reach it from Popradske Pleso train station, and it is located right next to a beautiful lake. The hotel was full during this weekend but the staff managed to offer us five beds in a big dormitory located on the 3rd floor, and for a price of 7euros per person, bringing us extra beds and blankets. Restaurant is good, nothing crazy, but with a descent choice and affordable prices. Breakfast was great and gives you plenty of energy before a long hike towards Rysy ! I definitely recommend this place !

Room Tip: Ask for the big dormitary located on the 3rd floor for a cheaper price ;)

Nice hotel in mountains, far away from everyday rush. Good place to start hiking trips. Good food and excellent hot tube under the sky after long trips in beautiful nature.
Not very crowdy in November. Possibility to select room for tourist or apartment...

I like staying at Popradske pleso. Great nature, starting point to nice walks, climbs. It is legendary place for Slovak tourists and mountaineers. Some rooms are bigger - to accomodate more people but very friendly. Classical "old style" restaurant, bar and in summer outdoor sitting available. Located next to glacier lake with the same name.

Room Tip: with a lake view

Our family enjoyed a wonderful four-day stay at this quaint back-country mountain inn. Our deluxe rooms were incredibly cheap ($55 USD per night) and very comfortable. The location can't be beat: a placid unspoiled mountain lake. While thousands of families crowd the nearby resort lakes, this is a spot for hikers and nature enthusiasts. The symbolical cemetary is a poignant reminder that nature can be dangerous: victims of avalanches and fallen climbers are memorialized with plaques. The hotel is a great base camp for multiple hikes and climbs; has a cafeteria and bar, plus there is a next-door chata that also serves food and drinks. Highly recommended. Susanna (an English-speaking staff member) was especially helpful in aiding us in making connections to Bratislava and Budapest via rail when we left.

Room Tip: Multiple levels of accommodation from backpacker dorms to deluxe rooms with a mountain view and bath...
