Pension Tatrasport Zampa: "Super accomodation in Stary Smokovec" Stary Smokovec Hotel Tip by GentleSpirit

Stary Smokovec Hotels: 3 reviews and 7 photos


I stayed at this pension for two nights in September 2011 mainly based on reviews on Tripadvisor. Martina was very responsive to email inquiries and was very happy to provide any information needed.

The pension itself is very new (2 years in business) and was designed very tastefully. I had a deluxe room, a large double bed with balcony and sitting area. flat screen tv. furnishing was more modern but worked nicely with the surroundings- was aesthetically pleasing and very comfortable. Plenty of closet space was available. The bed was large and very comfortable. the pillows were a bit too soft for my taste but no big deal. the bathroom was excellent..large, modern and of a design like an expensive hotel.

Martina would greet each guest and was a wonderful host. She helped suggest good hiking routes and was most helpful with train and bus schedules. All hotel staff was very nice and very responsive to requests. staff made an excellent pension even better.

the restaurant had a nice view, good food at more than reasonable prices.

wired internet was available in the room and wireless was only in the ground floor where the reception and restaurant were.

The pension was an excellent value for the money. I loved the design of the room- it was spotlessly clean, well lit and comfortable. everything worked perfectly. Breakfast was very nice, you chose from the menu. On the day I left a to go breakfast was prepared for me and i was surprised by how generous it was. I recommend this pension without reservation and would very happily stay here again.

Unique Qualities: Location is outstanding- directly across the street from the bus stop in Stary Smokovec. Stary Smokovec was well connected to local transport, both bus and rail. There are regular buses from Poland that go all the way to Poprad as well as the Slovak buses. Service to Poprad is quick, especially helpful when you have to catch an early train.

Rooms with a balcony are very nice, a great view

Has a very nice restaurant (open til 9 pm) with a lovely balcony and a great view.
