The changeover to the euro in hotels and other tourist facilities in Slovakia has passed smoothly and without problems, said Soňa Hudecová-Podhorná from the Slovak Hotels and Restaurants Association (ZHR) on January 5.

"So far, the conversion to the euro has been without major problems and the staff has been working with euro-calculators," Silvia Krausová, the owner of the Sojka Hotel in Liptovské Malatiny (Žilina region)told news wire TASR.

Her staff has been trained to give change in euros and accept Slovak banknotes worth up to four times the value of the transaction in question.

"The guests are paying both in Slovak crowns and in euros, it's 50-50, and many guests are paying with cards," she added. As for the euro coins, it was easier to bring them in from Belgium than to order Slovak euro coins, said Krausová.
