Grandhotel**** Starý Smokovec, which is built in Art Nouveau style, was opened as one of the first big hotels in the Tatras in 1904 and has been writing its story ever since. For over 100 years, it has been an honour for us to welcome thousands of guests, including various popular personalities who not only went down in the history of Czechoslovakia and Slovakia but also have become part of chronicles and our hotel history. That´s why many of our facilities are named after the most eminent of them and in the new hotel era with 84 new rooms, we are paying tribute to other personalities and dedicating our hotel suites to them so that their stories can live on.

A special Evening of Grand Moments, was held at our hotel on 20th September 2018 to dedicate the first three suites to king of comedians Vlasta Burian, multiple Olympic winner Emil Zátopek and his wife Dana also an Olympic winner, and charismatic Slovak actress Emília Vášáryová.

Almost a year later, the fourth eminent name was added to the “dedication family”. Czech pop and musical diva Lucie Bílá launched her suite on 19th August. In 2022, a suite was dedicated to eminent Czech actor Miroslav Donutil and family room to writer Daniel Hevier.

More Grandhotel suites are still waiting to be given their “prominent names” in the following months. 


Suite no. 305 is dedicated to Miroslav Donutil, a popular Czech actor and humorist. He has played in various popular films and series that are known to several generations. His most known films include: “Pelíšky”, “Černí baroni” (The black barons), “Doktor Martin” (Doctor Martin) and “Román pro muže” (Novel for men), which was shot in the High Tatras. “Atlas vtákov” (Atlas of birds) released in 2021 is one of his latest films where he played the main role.


Deluxe family room no. 213 is dedicated to Daniel Hevier, a Slovak poet, prosaist, lyricist and artist. It was mainly his legendary songs that he has written for the well-known Team band with singer Paľo Habera which have become very popular. In addition, he has been writing poetry and prose for children and youth and painting pictures for more than 30 years.

His family room includes literature for children, a list of songs that he has written for the Team band as well as the sheet music and the lyrics of one of his greatest hits – “Severanka” (The Northener). Above the sofa, there is his paining depicting the Tatras, his school report of primary school class 9 and his portrait from the childhood.

Suite of Emília Vášáryová

Suite no. 221 is dedicated to a great lady and charismatic actress – Emília Vášáryová. She has played over one hundred characters during her life. It was the embrace of the beautiful Tatras, where one of the most romantic films of the Slovak cinematography – “Copper Tower” was shot.

Suite of Vlasta Burian

Suite no. 105 is named after a big lover of the Tatras – Vlasta Burian. The king of comedians and the father of Czech humour and film comedy was a loyal client of our Grandhotel. The keen sportsman couldn’t miss the opportunity to climb to the Zbojnícka chalet while staying in the Tatras.

Suite of Dana and Emil Zátopek

Suite no. 121 is dedicated to eminent sports legends – Dana and Emil Zátopek. They went down in the history of sport as Olympic winners, world champions, holders of titles, records and various awards. Emil Zátopek was known as a “great eater” at our hotel.

Suite of Lucie Bílá

Suite no. 205 is dedicated to Czech pop and musical diva Lucie Bílá. Her casualness, humour and willingness to help those who need it most make her one of the most popular personalities not only in her home country but also in Slovakia. Grandhotel has already been honoured to welcome the holder of multiple prestigious awards in the past.

If you wish to stay at this suite, please specify your request in the “notes” section when booking your holiday. We will be happy to book the suite for you if it is available. Please note that although we always do our best to meet your wishes, it is not possible to guarantee individual suites for 100%.

Her Majesty British Queen Elizabeth II

On her journey to Slovakia in 2008, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Philip visited the High Tatras – Hrebienok and Starý Smokovec. After some time spent in Hrebienok, the couple travelled by a funicular back to Starý Smokovec, where Prince Philip and then Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič paid a visit to Grandhotel Starý Smokovec. A record in the hotel chronicle serves as a memory of this precious visit and is displayed in our hotel.
