I am was using the ship yesterday on 25/10/2014. The service staff was ignorant and very unhelpful. I bought my ticket online, when I approach the only service desk they have there and told the staff member I bought ticket online, he replay “so what?” I explained him, that I never used this service before and don’t know how this...

My introduction to this trip was being told off in Slovak for boarding too early. Not a polite warning that I was too early, but a full-on reprimand to leave the boat. Perhaps its my fault that I didn't ask upstairs in the ticket office exactly what time to board, or that I saw the path down the pontoon open... More

The hydrofoil only departed Fri - Sun, so we had to travel on Sunday. We booked on Sat so as we could just get on Sunday. There is plenty of seating, we were in the middle section going to Vienna so did not see much, coming back we got to the river early to make sure we got to the... More

Well worth a trip up the Danube. It takes about an hour. The scenery is much the same, i.e. trees line the river with small fishing houses in between. The boat trip is fun though. Bratislava is small so you can do this in a day and return.

Although we had Interrail passes, we still decided to take the hydrofoil and get a new experience! On that section of the Danube there isn't much construction, only forest and fishermen's houses, but it's a pleasant journey. The trip is quite fast (1 hour) and is not expensive, although bus or train are cheaper. It's also a nice way to... More

First of all - there are several companies which offer ships to Bratislava abnd back. The most popular is TwinCity Liner - we didn't use it because of high price - 90 Euro one way for our family. You can find enough info about this ship on the web. We used LOD Hydrofoil to get to Bratislava and back -... More

We debated whether to take this trip during a four day stay in Vienna but were glad we did. The journey itself was quick and comfortable though the scenery a little dull. We thoroughly enjoyed our few hours in the old city of Bratislva. The people we met were so warm and welcoming and food and drink very reasonable. A... More

We took the hydrofoil from Vienna to Bratislava and the coach back in the evening. There wasn't much to see as there isn't much habitation on that section of the Danube, only trees and bushes at the riverside, but it is quite quick and it's not too expensive. The piers in both cities are easy walking distances to the centre,... More

Bratislava to Vienna in 70 minutes or so by boat. It had to be done. And we were really lucky, the weather was gorgeous so we could happily walk outside, have a beer and a sandwich and relax as we sped down the river. It is not the most scenic of cruises, there are a couple of interesting castles to... More
