    ‘Pleasant stay with small, unnecessary vulnerabilities’ Original review (automatically translated)

    Medically noticeably positive result after 3 weeks of spa therapy in a pleasantly friendly atmosphere in the spa, restaurant and hotel area, with some unnecessary, because easy to improve, weak points, for example. Cleanliness (public pool, spa tub area, changing rooms) and refreshment of the drinks, (as it is often called "ne mame".) The three, interconnecting Danubius hotels (different categories) are located on the so-called spa island, on foot pleasant city close. We will be back next spring. show more

    • Hotel in general
      We had booked in the section Esplanade 4 * (there are also Palace, Splendid and Grand) comfort rooms and received, with our Danubius silver card free upgrade for premium rooms. Very pleasant stay with multiple linen change per week, bathrobe service and an infinite number of towels in and for all spa and sauna visits (of course in ALLEN and hotel categories) Entertainment possibilities, seasonal, greatly reduced. Unfortunately, the opening hours of sauna and pool area, because of lack of lifeguard, the statement. Over all the years of our visits, quality human resource management has rarely been a strength of those in charge and leaders. During our stay many international guests from Germany, Israel and Arabian states were represented .... always a good opportunity to interesting meetings (also among each other)
    • Service and hospitality
      With an additional personal plus, with some employees, with whom you / woman had daily to do.
    • Cuisine
      Price / performance ratio very good ... ... with daily freshly grilled fish (alternately probably just under 10 div.Arten) varied vegetables and salads, 2 soups, a lot of diverse fruit, breads and pastries, dressing grains (including mill) dried fruit, cereal ... and and. .. In addition to the 4 base meats beef, pork, turkey, chicken also time by time game, goose, duck. Possibly. Selection, but certainly the preparation was clearly dependent on the kitchen team "on duty". Here, too, there was a lack of personnel management, as there were probably bottlenecks in the workforce. Hand hygiene is offered in the restaurant entrance area but disregarded about 95% ..... here must be improved with courage to coercion by the line ..... even if the customer, it is his duty to adapt socially acceptable. ..in the international cruise this works well. Also, a more hygienic solution for the cup dispensers must be provided at the water drinking points in the house. 10 min. Waiting for the next treatment and watching the various withdrawal attempts ... is like unappetizing "hidden camera"
    • Spa, treatment and pool area
      In the spa area very good organization in time planning (it is received on customer requests) and expiration. Friendly and patient service staff in dealing with the international guests and their personal sensitivities (also from other cultures) As mentioned, a careful tub cleaning AFTER each use, depending on the commitment of the staff, ... and this is always lacking probably some .... despite regular inspections of the Spaleitung. The example of a towel I used in a locker room of the Dept. of Water Rehabilitation and not disposed of in the laundry tub is hopefully not representative. It was still there two days later, next to an already found tissue. In the public pool are unpleasant, (especially in the passage from the interior to the outdoor pool) the grease and dirt edges on. The strongly reduced opening times of the pool-sauna area I already mentioned. The noticeably different qualifications in individual application areas is also a negative - Standard massage and stimulation massage too often only wellness, clear offers to make, even if no masseur question comes, I understood only too late. - Wasserschwabilation probably a job for "stopgap" therefore (almost) without variety ... associated with acoustic problems for many understanding by heruntergeleierte texts.
    • Treatments and programmes
      Applications see above. Regular additional programs for body and mind. In-house entertainment programs probably little in demand. A fixed program for decades is a duo (violin / piano) with really outstanding and classical concert quality with an international repertoire covering all genres.

    ‘Medicinal spa with a difference!’ Original review

    Esplanade Hotel is connected to the Balnea medical centre where we had our treatments, starting with the Taste of a Piestany package! The medical consultation consinsted of signing off a form to specify conditions one mustn't have to use the facilities! This was a disappointment as we expected to speak to a medical person about our each individual needs and recommend treatments over and above the initial package! This didn't happen and we ended up adding on few extra treatments from a list not being sure what the treatments were! Staff spoke predominately German and Russian, with few speaking a broken English. Staff at the Reception , except for a lady called Vera, were not very friendly. They did everything by the book and if you had a question whose answer wasn't in the book, there was never readiness to help, and the answer would be NO! Vera made the difference seeing to us changing restaurants at the hotel and helping us organize our Anniversary dinner at the Thermia Hotel! Accommodation at the double deluxe plus on the 7th floor was good, comfortable, spacious room with a lovely view! The food at the hotel was atrocious! At breakfast was ok, but lunch and dinner were tasteless! We resorted to eating outside the hotel in nearby restaurants where we found decent food reasonably priced! The treatments at the medical / wellness centre were very professionally done! I had never seen injury and reumatic as well as wellness and rehabilitation done so well! We enjoyed mirror pool, mud packs, massages and only later discovered we could have had a lot more, had we been advised accordingly!! I strongly advise to make your research into treatments available before you go, even book some treatment on line, to ensure you had availability when you wanted as the place can get quite busy! So overall, it was a good experience and we will return but not necessarily at the Esplanade Hotel, primarily because of the food. show more

    ‘Best spa treatments at the hotel composite’ Original review (automatically translated)

    Hotel selection and reservation made by tel. Preliminary / proposal of a competent employee of FitReisen. Pleasant spa stay with complex intensive spa treatment with 24 applications / week. Nevertheless target price does not quite reach. It is then better, but not me. Benefit all Kur applications incl. Medical consultations can be reached on foot in air-conditioned corridors of the SPA hotels of 4 assembled. Restaurant is zugewiesewen is quite good. so bring everything yourself - - buffet tw: disadvantage for people with reduced mobility. very difficult! but food variety tip. All the staff both in the hotel and the spa area wearing badges with the colors of the countries whose language they speak. Mostly German. Overall a gelunger stay will, go for further treatment soon there. show more
