Three landmark hotels operating as part of the Rogaška Slatina spa resort – Grand Hotel Rogaška, Hotel Styria and Hotel Strossmayer, which date back to the 19th and early 20th centuries, were confiscated by Hypo Alpe Adria financial group after their former owner Jožef Pipenbaher failed to pay back millions in loans.

Heta Asset Resolution, Hypo’s “bad bank”, published a call for bids in July last year and now executed the sale to SLKI.  It would not disclose the details of the deal, but according to database GVIN, SLKI was established at the end of last year and is owned by Russian citizens Sergey Katsiev and Ljudmila Katsieva.

The company’s director is Roman Šipec, who announced SLKI would strive to further improve the scope and quality of the services. “Ownership change will not affect the hotels’ guests or staff. One of the important tasks will also be caring for the employees, as we are aware that people are key to a high quality of services in tourism,” Šipec said.
