“Very good choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We held conference in this hotel. Thereception was great, parking right under the hotel, modern facilities, nice rooms with great bed and plenty of light.I would detinitely recommend this hotel.

The only 2 small minuses:
Evening bar tender was rather lukewarm to our requests and slow
The projector in the conference rooms has wifi and it is pretty tricky to make it show someting.

BREAKFAST BACON: The bacon has rich taste, nice big pieces, warm enough. My BaconIndex score is 5 of 5

I have spent there three nights last week during my bussiness trip. Hotel is perfectly located , few minutes walk to the old town, which is by the way very impressive. It is also close to the railway station. Breakfast is also amaizing, staff very helpfull. They offer rooms for non smoking and smoking guest. What is rare nowadays. Im smoker so it was comfortable for me. Rooms are very clean and modern, simple and bright. Access for internet is free of charge and work perfectly. The only thing was not working properly airconditioner but when there is no summer outside it is ok....

Our room had one of the most beautiful views we have ever experienced in this price range: the church spires and lights and activities of the Old City were absolutely wonderful.

The price was quite reasonable for this level hotel; holidays are a good time to visit a business hotel. Staff were always very helpful and polite. Cleanliness of our room was exceptional: the bathroom absolutely sparkled.

We did not try the breakfast, as we thought the price was really too high for light eaters.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the main street with large windows are excellent; fourth floor.

Good basic clean business hotel close from the center.
This is the kind of a hotel you get in most European towns right now. Standard business location. Staff was a bit reserved, but quite helpful.
Nothing bad to tell about it, but also nothing exceptional. It was ok for a night.

The hotel is part of a chain of normally reliable hotels.

It is well located with only a short 5 min walk to the old town. Overall it has a slightly fading modernist feel, but the rooms are very clean and comfortable. . An excellent breakfast buffet.

Staff always very helpful. At one point I needed a small meeting room at short notice to meet with some colleagues and this was arranged without fuss or bother.

The hotel’s biggest selling point is its location - being on the edge of the old town. You simply walk out of the hotel, pass under the main road via a pedestrian subway and within 2 minutes you are at St Michael’s Gate (the famous gateway to Bratislava’s pedestrianized old town).

The hotel is also very easy to get to from the airport. A taxi will cost you about 15 Euros. Failing that, take the 61 bus from the airport to the city’s main bus station which is called Hvlana Stanica. Once there, take the 93 bus to Zakova – three stops from Hvlana Stanica. Because bus tickets in Bratislava are valid for a period of time – a 1 Euro ticket will get you from the airport all the way to the hotel with time to spare.

The hotel itself is very modern in design terms. The red, black and gold colour scheme in the reception, bar and restaurant was a bit overpowering for our tastes but the hotel rooms are much brighter with white gloss furniture and clever lighting which gives the feeling of space. We had a standard room and I have to say it was fantastic - plenty of space – comfy bed – spotlessly clean. The bathroom was incredible with an extremely funky walk in shower cubicle.

There were lots of other nice touches in the rooms too – a Nespresso coffee machine for example. The flat screen television was built into a unit at the foot of the bed. Decent toiletries too.

The spa area in the hotel is fabulous. There’s a nice sauna and steam room and a small but very pleasant chill out area. The views from the chill out area are amazing, especially at night – Bratislava Castle is directly opposite and when it is lit up at night it looks stunning. Massages can be booked at the hotel – there are two treatment rooms next to the sauna area along with changing facilities.

The gym which is next door to the sauna area is also very nice – it shares the same amazing view as the chill out room. The gym is equipped with Precor running machines and cross-trainers plus a Concept II rowing machine. There are also a couple of fixed weight machines – although these are new they are not very good. This is not a problem though as there is a decent set of dumbbells plus an Olympic quality bench.

Breakfast is excellent – high quality and lots of it. My husband is extremely fussy when it comes to breakfast and he loved it! We didn’t eat in the restaurant in the evenings so we cannot comment on the quality of the evening meals but if breakfast is anything to go by it should be very good. The bar is a very nice place for an evening drink but the bar prices are quite pricey, even by London standards.

What about the negative points? There is no WIFI in the rooms – just a wired LAN connection in the desks. Great if you’re working and using a laptop as its very fast but not so good if you want to connect to the web via a phone or tablet.

Our only other gripe was the parking charges. We thought the hotel’s parking was incredibly expensive at just under 30 Euros a day. Given Bratislava is a cheap city by Vienna standards, this parking tariff seems very pricey.
