Do not believe the hotel description. The reception is 82 stairs up from the road. There is no lift. My room was an additional 20 stairs up. For people with luggage to carry, or for people who are not so fit, this is a disaster. And furthermore, the hotel description gave no indication and I feel deceived. The rooms are... More

This hotel is a hole in the wall, we almost walked past it when headed there from the train station! And there's a hefty number of stairs to climb (three floors, I believe) to get to the reception desk. The place isn't fancy, but it has some eastern european old-world charm to it, I suppose. Our bed was actually two... More

Nice big room in the heart of the city center, close to attractions and restaurants and shops. A little bit of noise during night time but in the end it was a very good deal. I would recommend this hotel if you want to have fun in bratislava at a quite low price. P.S.: I appreciated that they charge me... More

The old city hotel has a great location in the old city. Pubs and restaurants all over the place. Just a couple of minutes walking to the city centre. No breakfast when we stayed there, but WiFi is there. Staff didn't speak English, but we somehow got by.

I would recommend Bratislava for a short break to anyone wanting to go somewhere a little different. Slovakia is an interesting country with a great history and beautiful scenery in the east, but it is not always going to be an easy trip. Getting into the centre of Bratislava from the airport for example, was not plain sailing for us... More

The hotel was conveniently located in an area with many restaurants and pubs. The staff was friendly. The bed in the room was quite rickety. The water in the shower area and the basins didn't drain properly. It was comfortable staying there just for a night but if I had to stay longer I'd probably go elsewhere.

The Old City Hotel is perfectly situated for a short stay. Everything you need or want to see is on your doorstep. The rooms are basic and there is a bit of a climb to reception, but the hotel is good, reliable and cheap. One surprise was that it was upstairs from a strip club, but this never caused us... More

Stayed for two nights 2/3 March 2015. The hotel is in a superb location in the old town and the reception staff are excellent but that is where the praise ends. The room wasn't very clean and there were ants on the bedroom carpet and in the shower room. There is no sound proofing and a lot of noise until... More

Stayed here early January and found the place to be very aged with old and worn out furniture. Fist time in Slovakia so not really sure what to compare it with but certainly not up to my standards. Beware this hotel has lots of stairs and no lifts therefore you have to carry your bags up all the stairs which... More
