EVERY second hotel and guest house in Slovakia falls short in providing the required quality of service, with shortcomings evident in both accommodations 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 restaurant or food preparation facility has shortcomings," said SOI chief Nadežda Machútová.
Inspections that were carried out in early summer often found that the association to which the hotel belonged was not displayed, while chairs, lamps, telephones, bathroom hangers and clothes irons were often missing from the rooms.
On a positive note the daily also noted, that compared to similar inspections last year, the level of honest billings for goods and services in these facilities has considerably improved.
