On an interail trip we chose to stay here for 3 nights and took a gamble! We were surprised at how great the hotel was for the price we paid and we were given a top floor room with a private bathroom. The room itself was huge! The hotel was also in a perfect location right in the centre of... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the old town. All you need to do is climb down the stairs and you are in the centre of all the action! The room we stayed in had only one window that opened out to the corridor. It was summer and we spent a very uncomfortable night. The hotel did give... More

Excellent location- close proximity to landmarks and a multitude of bars/restaurants Perfect for young couples. Maybe less so for families due to close proximity to bars Approx 20 mins walk from Bratislava train station Bathroom is shared between three rooms Not suitable for those with mobility problems- long climb up steep stairs to reach the hotel Free wifi and tv...

This is next to an 'exotic' dancing club and the room are probably used as temporary 'love nests'. The rooms were very clean but there were a huge amount of stairs to get to it. Not an issue if you have a rucksack but not so good with motorbike luggage. Still, it's exercisei! It's very cheap so it's okay for... More

This hotel is in such a convenient location right in the historic centre of Bratislava which made seeing all the sights during the day and enjoying the night life really easy. The hotel was quiet despite being on a busy street and the room was very nicely decorated. The staff were very friendly and happy to help, always saying hello... More

You have to be a young, budget-oriented person to enjoy this place. While it is in the ped zone, which is nice, that means you have to drag your luggage a substancial distance to get to the hotel in the first place, no taxi can drop you off. Then you need to climb numerous stair cases. You also have to... More

The hotel IS very central and convenient for walking around BUT they lied on the description, advertising "free parking". They don't have any parking at all as the hotel is in the centre of a pedestrian area, so you can't even drive to it to drop off bags. On finally getting to the hotel (by coasting through the centre on... More

After reading the reviews on here ..I must admit I was apprehensive. First impressions though are perfect location! Right in the heart of the old town. There are around 80 steps to climb up to the reception, (who was very friendly and helpful) but its worth it for the views of the town from our tidy/clean and modern room 8.... More

Stayed here as a group of 5 people in two separate rooms during European travels in June 2015. The location is really great, probably one of the best. It is right in the heart of the old town in Bratislava. This is if you don't count the massive amount of stairs to actually get up to the reception area, not... More

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
