The association of Historic Hotels of Slovakia is a relatively new member of the Historic Hotels of Europe group. It was officially launched in September 2009 and became a member of this international network of more than 700 unique hotels in over 20 countries as of January 1, 2010. The Slovak organisation now has eight members, after the Hotel Amade in Vrakúň became a member on August 1. Hotel Bankov, the oldest hotel in Slovakia, which has celebrated 140 years of uninterrupted operation, is also a member of the association.
The motto of the European historic hoteliers is “a story to tell”. All these are stories of castles, manor houses and historical buildings, many of whose walls have been standing for centuries. The hotels aspire to be exceptional not only in terms of their history and architecture, but also with high-class services, which are a basic precondition for becoming a member of the group.

-Grand Castle Hotel in Liptovský Hrádok
-Hotel Amade Château in Vrakúň close to Dunajská Streda
