We had to make a choice:
1. Stay closer to an unimpressive city center with mediocre hotel options, but walk 20 minutes with our luggages (or wait for a bus that seems to be a waste of money) to the train station.
2. Stay closer to the train station and do an easy 20 minute walk into the city center without luggages.
We opt for option 2 and were glad we made that decision. Bratislava is not exactly a big city, and spending a day there was more than enough for us.
The hotel is next to the train station which made it easy for our arrival and departure. The check in process was painless, and the staffs were friendly and knowledgeable. We were upgraded to an executive room which allowed access to the lounge for free snacks and drinks.
From the hotel we walked and visited everything including uphill to the castle without transportation.
The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had everything we needed. No noise at night, I fell asleep without my ear plugs. Over all it was a quick and fantastic one night stay.
I am not exactly sure why people think the area is bad. Wife and I felt completely safe even at night, maybe it's because we are from Los Angeles...
We prob. won't be back to Slovakia for a while, but if we do, we will def. stay here again.
