“Quality Hotel at a great price in Stare Mesto, Bratislava!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

We were looking for a hotel in the old town which was a reasonable price and had parking (in a wonderful basement garage entered by our first car lift: great fun and 3 euros a night!!!) The staff were most enthusiastic and willing to help, the rooms were really classy with all mod cons and breakfast was a huge buffet affair that saw us through until mid afternoon. All of the main sights were a short walk away: you are in strolling mode as soon as you leave the main door. I would certainly use this as a base in a future visit to Bratislava!

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the garden, on the interior of the hotel, having opted for a quiet room: p...

4 stars hotel very good located, close to the city center and to the Danube Riverside.
Excellent rooms, silent, clean, modern furniture; trendy restaurant. Good price. No doubts it is selected by business people.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I ended up booking this hotel as they had nice deal on their website (only suites were available in booking.com and others).

The hotel is good, modern, clean in great but quiet location in Bratislava old town. Rooms are big and includes whatever you need, wifi works fine and is free. Breakfast is better than average. And that's it. They are advertising sauna & jacuzzi but you have to request staff to put them on, which seemed to be problematic. Service level is somewhat spartan, the staff is there and they can help but don't expect them to serve you proactively or greet when you walk in... I didnt feel that welcomed actually, and they never got back to my query about airport transfer.

Could return easily as the hotel has what is needed for few days business trip. Been in several hotels in the city and this is definately good one. The hotel could improve a lot by raising the service level to match the property itself.

I liked and would recommend this hotel:
- Clean, comfortable, big size rooms, quiet (my room was on the back, a bit dark though - small window).
- Good breakfast.
- Excellent value for money.
- Very conveniently located, next to the old (and beautiful) pedestrian city center.
The front desk staff is efficient and professional, but really cold (as if it was just a 9 to 5 jobs and they really don't care too much about being in the hospitality business - a stark contrast with the usual friendliness of Slovak people).

But the big minus point of this hotel (and of so many hotels across Germany/Austria and probably Slovakia): the ridiculously small quilt/duvet, which you can't really tuck up under the mattress.

Cozy and clean room.
Good location for sightseeing.
Very narrow parking lots.
Big spider has his web on curtain.
I will stay here again, if I have chance to go to Bratislava.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

As a guest on a business trip last week I was checked into this Hotel.
The rooms are modern and well fitted out. The bathroom was adequate with a powerful shower located above the bath ( a shame this was not free standing in its own shower cabinet as the powerful spray did tend to soak the bathroom floor )
I had a room to the front of the hotel affording perhaps a cheerier outlook than those rooms to the rear.
Breakfast was again adequate and the coffee was excellent.
The staff were perhaps more efficient than friendly but I had no complaints.
The location of this hotel in the old town is what makes it a good choice.
Everything touristy is within walking distance.
The Wifi worked very well.
All in all I would be happy to stay here again if I was to return to Bratislava on another occasion

Room Tip: Rooms to the front are in my opinion the best option
