Inspectors: Every second hotel, guesthouse with shortcomings

EVERY second hotel and guesthouse in Slovakia falls short of the required quality of service, with shortcomings evident in both accommodation and meals for visitors, the Slovak Trade Inspectorate (SOI) told Pravda daily.

Compared with last year, when we found flaws in 60 percent of the inspected businesses, things have changed for the better, but it's still a bad result given that every second accommodation facility and nearly every second catering facility has shortcomings, said SOI chief Nade6da Machútová.

Inspections that were carried out in early summer often found that the hotel association to which they belonged was not displayed, while chairs, lamps, telephones, bathroom hangers and clothes irons were often missing.

The daily also noted, however, that compared to similar inspections last year, the level of honest billing for services and goods in these facilities has improved considerably.
