Beneficial effects of mountain environment on the breathing apparatus have been known already since the 19th century. This was the period when the alpine locality above Starý Smokovec became popular and sought-after, mainly because of the so called spa of Studený potok.
Opening of the funicular, which operated to Hrebienok, in 1908 initiated building the first tourist shelters near the funicular station. The funicular made this tourist locality very popular, the number of visitors was rising and the wooden shelters and huts did not offer enough space soon. They were replaced by the so called Sport Hotel in 1928, which was the highest located hotel in the Tatras at that time.
The Mountain Hotel Hrebienok – as we know it today started to operate in 1999 after 11 years of construction works.
Hrebienok was famous also as a venue of various winter sports events in the past. From 1929 to the beginning of WWII, ski races were held there regularly and in 1956, the first ski lift was built at the local slalom course. Hrebienok was also a popular sledging area with a sledging track that was lit since 1959.
The mountain hotel Hrebienok is located at the foot of Mt. Slavkovský štít in the embrace of tourist trails. Being an ideal starting point for many hiking trips, it is a sought-after area of tourists – beginners as well as experienced mountaineers.
Stay away from busy settlements and villages of the Tatras, fall asleep while listening to rustling forests and wake up enjoying the view of Mt. Slavkovský štít or Mt. Lomnický štít and the surrounding nature of the Tatras.
