“Great for a romantic week and....but not for business travellers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Very beautiful hotel, located in a residencial area of Bratislawa, a bit far away from the downtown, but anyway, great place. Very big and comfortable rooms, clean, my room had a great balcony with table+4 chairs, great to have a drink or enjoy the evening......all that fantastic and great if you are on vacations, or on a romantic week-end with wife/husband/partner.

I landed here because the usual hotels I use in Bratislawa were all full (Sheraton, Crown Plaza) and my assistant told me that our travel agent recommended this place. I was on business, with a very tight agenda. Landed at Vienna Airport from London at 11:00PM, took a Taxi, arrived at the hotel 11:50PM, very tired and dying from hunger.....at check in asked the reception if I could get something to eat, and they told me that no, nothing, and in the area there was simply nothing to buy. The guy at reception told me I should try the mini-bar from the room.....therefore, my dinner was 2 packs of Pringles chips, and honey roasted almonds from the mini-bar. I also asked for wireless internet, and they told me that in the room only wired, and wireless in the lobby, meaning that after a day full of meetings, rush to Heathrow, full flight, etc, I was not able to sit in my bed and check some mails and presentation material. Much less personalized than at the Albrecht, but it is clear that something like this (which I give a lot of value when travelling on business) would have never happened in a 5-star chain hotel like the mentioned at the beginning of the review.

Bottom line, very beautiful place, and will come back, but with my wife on a romantic week-end.......but for my next business trip to Bratislawa, will certainly go to the hotels I usually do.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

The hotel was very impressive, clean, nice design, good restaurant. I would say maybe a bit overrated. The room is nice and big enough, but i didnt like the grey colour of the walls. The bathroom was huge, but a bit cold. What i liked a lot was the bathub, it was really huge. The swimmingpool was nice, not really big. The stuff could be maybe a bit friendlier and pay more attention to the guests wishes. I asked the lady at the desk in the spa to tell me if any male is coming to the swimmingpool area, since im a muslim and covering myselfe, so i asked her to let me know and i can cover myselfe and leave but when we were in the sauna i saw her coming inside with a man, which i didnt find nice at all. I dont think its a big request, so a guest i would not expect to be ignored this way. I would recommend this hotel and would stay next time for a night or two for sure.

Location: Out of the city centre in a residential area, there is a bus station right in front of the hotel, which brings you directly to the city centre and back (very confinient, although I usually do not use public transportation)
Check in and welcome: Exceptional friendly, professional and welcoming
Room: we had the room No. 12 on the 2nd floor right under the ceiling (really charming), great room and interior design, not too big, but room enough, L'Occitane products in the bathroom, exceptional clean, only the bed was a bit too hard and the pillows are out of foam and not down
Bar: great bar, attentive staff
Restaurant: exceptional good quality of food, drinks and wine (definitely recommendable), although it is expensive for Slovakia, it is worth every cent, very attentive and friendly staff
Check out: perfect friendly and professional staff
Resume: At least for us it is the place to go when travelling to Bratislava!

Room Tip: 2nd floor, under the roof

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

All the Pro´s of this hotel have been already highlighted by other reviewers so here is a few small drawbacks: 1) While the hotel restaurant is known for excellent dining, the breakfast was just average, but the eggs and bread were excellent. Don´t expect large buffet, even if fully occupied there is only 12 rooms in the hotel... ; in the room: 2) Design sometimes beats functionality (the lever mixer is out of your reach when sitting in the bathtub; the taps are slippery and difficult to rotate, chairs are heavy to move); 3) The large HD TV set was loaded with just analog signal and limited number of channels; 4) The stairway and corridor in the upper floor can not be ventilated so during warm days it is very hot there; 5) The room to room noise reduction is not ideal.
But in overall it is a really nice place and above average hotel.

Simply a Secret gem in the heart of Bratislava, this hotel is one of the best in the city. The customer service is fabulous, the food is to be truly experienced and savored. To have such a quaint and top quality hotel is a real blessing in the heart of Bratislove. This Hotel is a 5 STAR.

This small hotel is in a beautiful house located in a residential neighbourhood close to the castle. The fact that there was no elevator did not trouble us. We had a beautiful large room, wifi was free, we had massages in the morning which were top. Breakfast was plenty, our cappucinos were charged extra. I would go back there any time. Only drawback was the fact that it was not centrally located. Staff was super nice and helpful!

The Location is out of the town, at the top of a large hill,  which may put some off but not us. The room we had was exceptional. It had one of the biggest bath tubs I have seen in a hotel, with room for two at ease. 
A lot of thought  had gone into the design of the hotel. It had a very pretty and cool balcony at the rear on which you can have breakfast or evening dinner. 
Would recommend as a true 5x hotel even with the confusion over the swimming pool. 
There was confusion over the use of the swimming pool. It seemed unbelievably expensive. Although we may have had a session included in the hotel rate. We don't know. This wasn't clear.
