                                                                                                    5 of 5

The chalet is situated in a wooded area but within walking distance (5 mins) of Strba train station which you can get a train to Poprad, Bratislava etc (mainline) or to ski resort of Strbske Pleso. The Chalet is stunning, has open plan lounge/diner, kitchen/utility and bathroom. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs. The lounge has comfortable leather like sofa's, a huge TV (no live tv but they have 100-200DVD's!) and an incredible log fire. Kitchen was good size with fridge freezer, 2 ovens, hob, microwave and plenty of plates glasses etc. I was worried about a previous review about cleanliness but owner told me before we went that the old cleaner had retired and a new cleaner had been employed. It was VERY clean with plenty of towels and bedding. All rooms have electric heaters but they didn't come on much as the log fire heats the whole chalet. Plenty of hot water too. We stayed 7 nights and did some skiing, walking, shopping and eat and drank too much. I could not believe how cheap it was: 1/2 litre of beer around 1€, a large glass of wine €2 and food from €4/€5. We eat a few nights at Strba Pension a short walk where 4 pizza plus about 20 drinks cost us €45!!! We plan to go back in the Summer. Unbelievable area and great chalet.

Met by the cleaners who didn't speak a word of English. However we managed to get through. Very clean and extremely warm apartment. Just three friendly suggestions, blinds need changing both were broken. Bigger duvet on bed. And some useful telephone numbers, e.g. Doctors, Emergency numbers. Don't rely on the television no English Channels this didn't matter to us. Great location walking distance to most things, supermarket two minutes away. We used free walking tours, one to Jewish Quarters and one of the Old Town. Both very informative and interesting. Visited Salt Mines tried to make our own way there but this didn't work out. Used one of the tours, a must to visit. Five days was long enough, although we didn't see everything. Would recommend this apartment to friends and family
