“This acquisition is a natural result of all our efforts to include 100% of the Grandhotel Starý
Smokovec in the portfolio of our hotels. It will enable us to use synergies related to the
ownership much better,“ said Bohuš Hlavatý, chairman of the board of TMR.
The history of the 4-star Grandhotel Starý Smokovec started to be written in 1904. This more
than a 100-year old grandhotel is considered one of the most prestigious hotels in the High
Tatras and all Slovakia due to its location, history and unique Art Nouveau style. Its 79
rooms, 5 conference rooms, the relaxation zone Grand Wellness&Spa and the Lafévre
Restaurant offer unforgettable moments spent in the Tatras.
