When the quality of hotels in individual towns is evaluated, Slovakia’s capital placed second in Europe, narrowly behind Warsaw, the TASR newswire reported.

“A personal experience and positive references are the strongest motivators in order for tourists to return to the destinations and simultaneously inspire others to travel,” Marta Kučerová, general director of the Slovak Tourist Board (SACR), told TASR. “This is why these successes please us very much. This is why we consider the increasing quality of services not only in hotels but also in tourism as it is a valuable instrument for boosting visits to Slovakia.”

This is not the first time Slovak hotels scored in quality rankings. Already last year the Wall Street Journal listed Bratislava hotels among the “Top five cleanest hotels worldwide”.

Hotel Info conducted the survey on its website, at which guests evaluated hotels after their stays by points from 0 to 10. Criteria were quality of the room, behaviour of the personnel, cleanliness, noise, the ratio of the price against the value of accommodation, fitness or spa facilities, breakfast and gastronomy. One of the most known booking portals had at its disposal more than six million evaluations.
