My boyfriend and I went to Bratislava for 3 nights over New Year and stayed in this hotel. I can honestly say that I couldn't fault it. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels over the years but I can truly say this hotel had the edge. From the second we checked in until the second we checked out, we were treated so well and really well looked after.
The staff could not do enough for us and the room was gorgeous. If I thought oh it would be nice if they had that, I would always find that they not only did they indeed have that but it would exceed our expectations. The complimentary Rolls Royce transfer into town was a delightful added bonus.
Unfortunately we never got a chance to use the Spa due to lack of time but we did go and have a look and it is really lovely.
The location is a little out of the way. About a 20 minute walk into the centre. It's not a problem though and at the end of the night we chose to get a taxi home which wasn't more than about 5 euros so next to nothing! We had heard prior to going to Bratislava to beware of dodgy taxis charging over the odds. We heeded that advice. We found that the company Happy taxis were very reliable and trustworthy. They have their sign on the side of the car, you can't miss it.
When we go back to Bratislava (we found it a charming and friendly little city) we would not dream of ever staying anywhere else. Thanks Kempinski Riverside for a truly memorable New Year.
