this huge old style communist hotel is special in the way it shows the style of hotel in the former communist block! the buffet breakfast is the best i ever had: incredible choice of food. Elevators are small and do not work well but it is a part of the vintage "charm" of the building!

Stayed at this iconic highrise hotel (which has an old Soviet-era layout/architecture). Very close to Bratislavy City Center, and surrounding amenities. The breakfast was very delicious with lots of selection. One was definitely spoilt for choice. Rooms were well ventilated and were clean. The bed mattresses could have been a bit softer. The elevators were also old fashioned. Though plain... More

This is by no means a luxury hotel, so avoid it if spartan rooms and dirty carpet in the hall bother you.The view is amazing, the breakfast ample. Get a high floor. However, this property was clearly used to house Soviet soldiers or soccer hooligans at some point. The result is a hilarious list of fines for things like breaking... More

Stay at this hostel if you want to feel a glimpse of the Soviet times - what a joy! I stayed at another, but asked for a guided tour because I loved so much the hotel... Staff was very friendly and the hotel is like in the old times! The views are amazing and it can be seen from anywhere... More

I was sent to Hotel Kyjev by tourist information after arriving late into the city. The hotel is on the eastern edge of the city, walkable from the town centre but in a slightly run down area. There were a group of drunks in the square opposite. It was very cheap 1400 Slovak Koruna for a single room (US $60).... More

I have stayed in airbnbs in bratislava for the same price as this hotel and they have been far nicer and cleaner. This hotel was gritty and basic, and although they have a large spread for the breakfast I didnt think it was all that good of food. The price list of breakages is quite funny. They have listed almost... More

After getting off the train, we made our way towards Hotel Kyjev, not really knowing what it looked like. It is a post communist hotel in the colours of communist grey, the largest hotel around. Once inside we were confronted with probably the largest foyer we have ever seen inside a hotel, complete with a yellow Trabant !! We later... More

Got the shabbiest room ever. The curtains were torn, bathroom was smelly. I don't think they ever have guests here. Probably that is why they let us check in early in the morning and 'upgraded' us from a single and a double room to 2 triple rooms! Lots of space and panoramic view (on the top floor probably) and sleep... More

Stayed here on a work trip. Hotel is very old, very run down and probably needs knocking down. Stained carpets, water stains all over the cracked sink & bath, slatted ceilings had never been cleaned, mould on walls, plaster falling off walls, the list could go on and on. The breakfast was an experience........ we all kept getting electric shocks... More
