A little hotel just behind the corner of the city center. Very proffesional staff and friendly servis. Perfect breakfast and coffee. Very nice room and with parking option. I would recomend to all who wants to be a friendly hotel close to city center.

On arrival Dec 2nd my partner and I welcomed by nice lady at reception and promptly checked us in .. Room was spacious yet very warm , almost bit to warm. Although air con is an option . Exceptionaly clean room and large bathroom with nice complimentary toiletry box set . Double bed very comfortable and large. At night very quiet .. Although I heard some guests arrive back late but didn't make much noise.. Breakfast was plentiful with usual bacon eggs beans , cereals , ham and pasteries .. However the coffee flask was small and ran out frequently and needed a lot of topping up. The evening meals where amazing with amble dishes to choose from the menu. Plate of food was very well presented and extremly delicious and healthy. hotel guests can avail of -20% discount on evening meals. The Cheasnut and spinach cappacino soup is highly recommended, also The risotto. Staff at hotel are very friendly and will gladly assist you . Walk to main square only 5mins through remarkable artitecture along the way.. The hotel also provides good underground car parking and airport transfers. A fabulous city centre hotel.

Arriving rather late in the evening, I was delighted to be able to share an excellent, professionally-served meal with good wine with friends in the restaurant at 9.30pm. And the main dish of an excellent risotto was under €8. The room was spacious and looked onto a small street one block back from the boulevard along the Danube. The bed was delightfully comfortable and all the fittings stylish.
I was part of a small conference held at the hotel: the manager went out of his way to help both the group and the individual guests. For a conveniently situated modern hotel within easy walking distance of most of what you'll want, at a good price, this is hard to beat.

Room Tip: Back of hotel would be quieter, but front (street) was fine for me.

This is a great little hotel, and booking.com got us a really great rate. The room was large, clean and the beds super comfy. Powerful shower and a great breakfast was included in the rate. 3 - 5 minutes and you'll be on the river, old town main areas, trams. Wifi available in the lobby and restaurant. 25 minute walk to the train station or a 5 minute taxi ride. Great place to make home while checking out the great city of Bratislava.

The stay at this hotel was a very good experience. It is modern and clean and the rooms are very spacious. The city and all the attractions are in walking distance. The breakfast buffet was excellent and people at the reception very friendly.

At first, the receptionist didn't call somebody to help us with our luggages. She just did the check in and then let us on our one to find out all other things around (like : how to get to the garage, how to carry our suitcases etc). The room (as the hotel) had a bad smell although it was clean. The sleep was the worst part of all as there was no soundproof and the noise from outside was very annoying. The breakfast was nothing special. The only positive was the 20% discount to the bar and restaurant and that this hotel is near to the old city.
This hotel didn't worth its money.
