The hotel was a short walk from the old town and the castle and an 800m downhill walk from the main train station. The rooms were clean and modern and the hotel offered free internet access in the foyer. The breakfast wasn't bad, you could order waffles but the staff both in the breakfast area and at reception could be a little abrupt and unwilling to assist. Pretty much everything we asked for from reception they could not supply even though it was listed in the hotel information in the room as being available from housekeeping. Also, the breakfast staff don't bother getting you to sign for breakfast to be charged to the room but they add it to your bill anyway which I found odd and raised the possiblity of others charging breakfasts to your room. Overall, the hotel was not bad and in a good location.

... way up the slippery , steep slope, I got talking – in Russian – to a couple from Ukraine who were also going to the castle. They were very nice, and it was a good chance to loosen up my Russian again.
By the time I got to the top, I had parted ways with the Ukrainians and was entirely alone. The white fortress stood in stark contrast to the bare trees, and for sure, this was the “bleak midwinter” if ever I’d seen ...

I also met my first fellow Canadian on my journey. A guy around my age from Edmonton. He's off to China to find work as well. Shanghai if I remember correctly. Spent the night with him and an Englishman chatting about all sorts of things over beers and goulash. All for great prices!
Off to do some hiking in Tatras Mountains of East Slovakia soon. Right after a restful night of doing not so much!
