Booked two rooms - one for 2 nights and one for 3 nights (I was staying in the latter) at BAR.
It was very easy to find the hotel, it is in the a brand-new developed area of Bratislava. Right by the Danube and a 10 minute walk from both the main bus station (where the buses from Vienna stops) and the old town.
Bellboys took our luggage upon arrival. Went to check-in at the reception and a manager came out from the back office to greet me. He told me that my room was upgraded to an executive suite and my friend's room was upgraded to a deluxe room. Checked in at 11AM without any problems.
The receptionist informed me about the lounge and that the breakfast was served in the main restaurant (this is standard for all plats and club floor guests, as the lounge itself don't serve breakfast).
The suite was on the 7th floor (top floor). It had a large terrace with striking views over Bratislava. The suite was large and modern, very well designed, with good quality amenities and furniture. It had a bedroom, a separate living room and one full bathroom.
The living room had dark wooden floors, a full-automatic Nespresso machine, a 50" LCD television, a dining table, a couch with table, a study area, and a comfortable chair with footrest and a huge designer lamp. There was also a door out to the balcony.
The bedroom had carpeted floor, a king size bed, a 32" LCD television, a divan with a glass table by the bed's end, a comfortable chair with coffee table and a huge designer lamp. There was also a huge walk-in closet in the bedroom. It was seperated to the bedroom by a lockable door. The bedroom also had a door out to the balcony.
The bathroom was large and very modern too. A huge walk-in shower with rainfall shower head and normal shower head, a large soaking bathtub and two washbasins. The combination of fresh flowers, stone, glass and mirrors were very nice and delicate.
The hotel have complimentary WIFI throughout the hotel. I suppose it is complimentary for ALL guests, since it does not require a code or room number. Just log right on to it.
The hotel itself is brand new, and everything is fresh and well designed. It really reminded me of an Asian Park Hyatt or something like that. There was several food and beverage outlets: a cosy lobby lounge, a cool bar, a nice restaurant and a small Sheraton deli. The prices were reasonable too. I had veal with foie gras, tuna steak and lamb leg in the main restaurant and it was absolutely delicious, some of the very best hotel food I have ever tasted! When the weather allows it, you can sit outside on a patio on the square. It is very nice for people watching. You can order food, coffee or drinks from the restaurant.
The hotel is connected to a huge mall, with all kinds of stores: high street clothing, cinema, electronics, groceries, etc.
The health club was nice too. The gym was small, but had good equipment and everything worked well. The pool was very nice, with water coming down from the walls, and the pool do not have edges like conventional pools have, so it was quite cool too. There was massage showers and ice machine. A steam bath and a sauna. Very nice!
The club lounge was amazing too!! It is located on the 1st floor. It is like a terrace, where you look over the lobby. There you can help yourself to soft drinks, water, juices, BEER, fruits and snacks all day long. In the evenings they have wines and food. The food is served through a menu, which the attendant will give to you. There you can order anything you want, as much as you want, for FREE! It is a limited menu, but the amounts are large and the quality is great. It is like a full meal. There are REAL sandwiches, calamari, spring rolls, chicken wings, grilled vegetables, cheese and one more option (which I can not remember) to select from. Remember that you can order as much as you want. Exceptional quality and totally freshly prepared, not like other lounges where they have a "buffet" with tired food and snacks. The lounge was very well designed and very comfortable.
The breakfast was great too, a large selection of both cold and warm food, egg station where chefs cook your eggs the way you prefer them and serve it to your table. Everything was very fresh and of execellent quality. Not one single slice of sweaty cheese or dry sausage. I could see the F&B manager checking the food several times during our breakfast. It is great to see the hotel take good care in securing the quality of their services. The salmon was amazing, so was the fresh bread, the freshly squeezed juices and the omelets. Simply one of the best breakfasts I have ever had in a hotel.
Turndown service was done on all evenings. Very consistent.
The staff are very professional and attentive and consistent, there are smiles and greetings every time you venture through the lobby on your way out or on your way in. I had a few questions and requests during my stay, and everything was answered and solved very smoothly. The staff in the food and beverage outlets were very attentive too - both in the bar and the restaurant.
I think this hotel beats the hell out of Radisson Carlton. This will be my preferred hotel in Bratislava. The amazing suites, the great lounge, the nice staff, the convenient location, etc. Everything was top-notch. The hotel opened barely 5 months ago, and I did not experience any hick-ups. Not one single downside on my trip! The hotel is relatively quiet, I guess most people are not aware of it yet.
Really, my absolute favourite SPG property in Europe.
TIP: if you would like to have a nice drink or a small snack, just go out on the square, behind the hotel, pass the Tag Heuer store, and there you will be on the Danube promenade/corniche, and there are lot's of bars and restaurants serving food and drinks just centimetres from the water. It is very nice, and relaxing, and great for people and boat watching too!
