“Excellent central hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

A modem, clean, comfortable hotel in a very central location in Bratislava. The rooms are large and very comfortable with modern spacious bathrooms. The breakfast is excellent and there is a nice comfortable bar for evenings. The staff are efficient and helpful. I can recommend using the hotel limo service between Bratislava and Vienna Airport. All round an excellent base for your visit to Bratislava.

Room Tip: Check out the air con - a little noisy in some rooms.

Stayed for 3 nights.
The location is very good, close to the old town and to the Danube. The room was big, no bad odors, clean. The beds could have been cleaner (long strands of hair and some stains on the linen). The bathrooms was big and very clean.
The restaurant had good food and the personnel of the hotel and of the restaurant was very helpful.

With the car safely in the underground (8 car large) parking lot visiting Bratislava is great.
The airco in the room makes coming to your room very relaxing in the hot summer days.

Breakfast
On weekdays we were allowed to squeeze our own oranges and grapes for fresh juice. In the weekend fresh juice wasn't available (sad emoticon).
Breakfast is (to slovak standards) quite complete. Coming from a german hotel we missed the variety in breakfast a little.

Staff
The staff was polite and did was asked without any complaints. I would not call them genuine.
The contacts with cleaning ladies and ladies at the reception was splendid. You could feel the stares of the bartenders and see them start chatting when the elevator doors close.

(bath)Room
The rooms are very modern and the bathroom is excellent .
The bath is big enough for three (happy emoticon)!

Extra's
A Baby bed was provided for our baby, and extra efforts (sterilisation of bottles) are no problem at all.
We will probably be staying there again.

The Hotel Avance is a delightful and fine hotel, perfectly located on a quiet street just outside of the Old Town. The breakfast is a huge array of meats, cheeses, breads and fine pastries balanced with cereal, yogurts and fruit. Meals in the hotel are exquisite! White glove service!
Rooms are quiet and showers hot. But the best of all are the staff. Stefan, Michaela, Sasha,
Jacob, Tomas and others go out of their way to be kind and helpful.
These Canadians will never forget their trip to Bratislava made all the better with our stay at the Avance!
PS. Great Lattes!

Room Tip: Rooms at back of hotel are quiet. Windows open if a/c not required Garage helpful as parking is ve...

Restaurant is located in Apollo hotel in Bratislava. Menu offers a lot of venison meals, but you can choose also something light, or salad. Staff is very professional, interior is friendy, meal is simply excellent

this is a lovely hotel. Our car was safe in the underground garage which we had booked before coming. It's a simple walk into the historic part of the city. Great breakfast - good staff. Air conditioned rooms and a bathtub. Only extra I would have liked would be tea and coffee in the room, but haven't had that anywhere in Europe yet.
