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

The location is great! It's in the pedestrian-only part of historic old town, and just steps from St. Michael's Gate and the Old City Hall. The bad news is that reception is at the very top of a four-story flight of stairs with narrow treads on the corners. There is no elevator. Not good for the elderly. There are several... More

Stayed for a couple of nights, room was warm and quiet and shower was good, it was good enough for the two nights we stayed. Hotel is part of a large building and is set on the third floor with 62 steps to the rooms and then a further 20 to reception. It is situated in the centre of the... More

The location couldn't be better, right in the middle of the old town. the decor of the room was pretty with a beam celling. The wifi was average. The lady on reception was helpful as I was looking for the church of St Elisabeth (blue church) and she was able to point it out on a map. As the hotel... More

I slept in this hotel several times, because I often have to take an early flight from Vienna airport and from here I can get to the bus station Novy most (Blaguss buses, not Slovak lines) in 10 minutes by foot. The location is excellent, it is directly in the city centre. Nearby there are sightseeings, museums, shops, restaurants and... More
