Tiago Vigano, hotel director of Hotel Elizabeth **** named Hotelier of the year 2018


How do you feel about being awarded? Does being Hotelier of the year have a special meaning for you?

Of course, this means a lot to me. I come from Brazil and have been in Slovakia only for about 10 years, so it was quite a big surprise. However, this is a good example of the old saying – if you work hard and if you put your heart and passion into doing what you love, you can achieve great things. Big “thank you” goes to my team, which makes our hotel operate like a clockwork. I have been presented with this prestigious award thanks to their effort and I would like to share this award with the entire hotel.

A big day for Hotel Elizabeth and for Slovakia’s hotel industry


After a series of mostly negative news arriving from France, there is finally a positive one. The Historic Hotels of Europe awards ceremony which took place at Chateau de l’Epinay castle in France saw the awards given to the best historical hotels of Europe for 2016. The results were based on the vote of hotel guests from all over the world in 10 categories, while more than 500 hotels were nominated. Some of Slovakia’s historic hotels were also among the nominated contestants. The Historic Hotels of Europe Award represents the most prestigious award that a historic hotel can be granted.

Slovakia saw two hotels nominated – Grandhotel Praha Tatranská Lomnica finished third in the Best Historic Spa Hotel of Europe category, and Trenčín’s Hotel Elizabeth brought home three awards – a third place in the Best Customer Care Historic Hotel of Europe category and a fourth place in the Best Adventure Historic Hotel of Europe category, thanks to the hotel’s historical medieval feasts at the Trenčín Castle. The most prized award for Hotel Elizabeth was the first place in the Best Historic City Hotel of Europe category. This is truly great news not only for the city of Trenčín, but also for Slovakia which can pride itself on the quality of hotels and hospitality services. This award was presented to Tiago Locatelli Vigano, Hotel Elizabeth’s hotel director, who was joined in celebration by the president of the Historic Hotels of Slovakia Association, Ján Svoboda.

This award represents the hard work of our team but also of the architects, who skillfully crafted a new face for our hotel while keeping a firm grasp of the historical architectural heritage of the building.

Ján Svoboda expressed his satisfaction of the fact that Hotel Elizabeth managed to be awarded in two consecutive years. Last year it dominated as the Best Customer Care Historic Hotel of Europe and this year as the Best Historic City Hotel of Europe

The Historic Hotels of Europe awards are even more prestigious than, for example, the Michelin Stars. Each year, only 10 hotels are awarded and if a hotel manages to take first place for two consecutive years, it is a hallmark of quality and professionality
concluded Ján Svoboda, president of the Historic Hotels of Slovakia Association

Hotel Elizabeth

Hotel Elizabeth is a legend of Slovakia’s hotel industry. The hotel was built in 1902 in the Secessionist architectural style and was successfully renovated in 2012. The process took two years and about 15 million euros, of which 3.9 million was funded by the European Union. Shortly after, it was renamed from Hotel Tatra to Hotel Elizabeth. Since its reopening, it has hosted numerous prominent guests, including presidents, government officials and other VIPs of the world of music and sports. The hotel offers a unique cultural experience and thanks to its beautiful setting, it provides a great possibility of exploring both nature and history – an example of this is the Roman inscription on the rock below the Trenčín Castle from 179 AD.
