We are a team of professionals who have been making documentaries for National Geo for 15 years. 4 years ago we decided to launch portal in Slovak language in cooperation with NG (our owner comes from Slovakia). In a short time, we became the most-read portal in Central Europe thanks to cooperation with many countries, their embassies, etc. Then we decided to launch a portal in English, where we will publish promotional videos of hotels, so that the interested customer does not have to look for them, but can find them all in one place. At the moment we have more than 750 videos published.

Due to the excellent collaborations abroad, either directly with hotels or with hotel chain owners, we were approached to cover reviews of their hotels/resorts within Central Europe. Partners invite us on stays to write a “slightly different” review of their hotel. They can always count on our absolute correctness and positive way of writing reviews.

A positive Travelista review does not mean that we are feeding readers an untruth. On the contrary! Since we travel exclusively as a family to these reviews, we write them in a way that tries to point out the positives of what we have experienced. We try to leave out the negative stuff – unless it’s really something that could absolutely ruin your eventual stay. Of course, we inform the hotel owners about such things as a matter of priority. If we come across something really bad (it hasn’t happened so far), then in the interest of the reader, we will alert the owner to these facts and inform them that we refuse to publish the review (this is our right, also anchored in the cooperation agreement).

So, if we publish the review – we stand by it!

The Travelista project is built on 3 basic pillars:

  1. We only write about places where we have personally been
  2. We stand behind every review and can defend it
  3. We don’t cheap out or jump at every offer.

So please take some time to read through the options we provide.
If we have prices listed somewhere, they are firm and we stand behind them indiscriminately!

We have a very clear editorial policy:
Please note that we do not accept requests for any guest articles. Please do not contact us with an offer of content that would be “of interest to our readers”, this is entirely up to us to decide. We know our readers best, we know what they respond to and what they don’t. Plus, this blog is about our personal journeys and experiences, not yours.

We like to get involved, support, and showcase the brands we have used or are using in our travels and love. So, if you think TRAVELISTA is the right platform for your product or service and it’s travel-related, please feel free to contact me.

WE DO NOT write about any hotels or places we have not visited.
If we receive any compensation (financial or experiential) for any article, review, or mention, it will be clearly stated. If we like a place, you’ll find out – if we don’t like a place, believe me, you’ll find out too!

This is the TOP package of the TRAVELISTA portal. We carefully choose our project partners and promote them in the maximum form during the whole duration of cooperation.

Partners of portal:


Invite to get to know your product or service. We will then share our experience with our readers. If we think the product, service, or destination is a good fit and of interest to our audience, we will be happy to take you up on your offer.

Reviews of travel products (suitcases, clothing, accessories, etc.) are not something we do on a regular basis, so they are only available as sponsored articles. Please see below for more information.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We do reviews EXCLUSIVELY based on a personal stay in the hotel because we want to give readers a real experience of the stay and not a PR story. This is where we are different and we want to stay that way.

We do hotel reviews primarily as we mentioned earlier. We agree to offer a review after considering the location and the offer we receive from the partner (owner) of the establishment. Since we travel exclusively as a family of 2+2 for reviews, we take into account the offer itself as well as the options in the area…
