New hotels opening their doors soon

A LACK of accommodation with adequate services has often been listed as a barrier to the development of tourism in Slovakia. But this argument has lost some its force recently as a number of hotels, from the most luxurious to the more economical, have opened across in the country.

A LACK of accommodation with adequate services has often been listed as a barrier to the development of tourism in Slovakia. But this argument has lost some its force recently as a number of hotels, from the most luxurious to the more economical, have opened across in the country.

After the recent opening of the Sheraton hotel in Bratislava’s Eurovea complex, another five-star hotel will soon open, also on the capital’s Danube embankment. The Kempinski Hotel River Park, which is part of the River Park development, is due to open in time for the early summer season.

Another five-star hotel nearing completion is the Amade Spa Hotel in Vrakúň, near Dunajská Streda, which will open in June. A four-star Mercure hotel located in Bratislava’s city centre will also open later this year, and the Holiday Inn Trnava will welcome its first guests in September.
