This hotel has the feel of being recently built and is thus very clean and functional. It is tastefully decorated in a way that will appeal and be familiar to many travellers (that might be an issue to some as the ubiquitous clean modern lines lack the charm or quirkiness found in other more 'design' orientated hotels).
The check-in was handled smoothly and efficiently, with the front office kindly upgrading me to a junior suite (corner room). Another nice touch was the warm cookie given at check-in, perfect after a busy day!
My room featured a separate living area, bedroom and bathroom meaning that it would be suitable for small families. Again, the room is modern and functional with good quality bed, furnishings and Crabtree and Evelyn bathroom amenities. It was very nice to see a separate bath and shower in the bathroom.
I had two issues with my room which you should pay attention to if wanting to stay in the same room type. First, being a corner room, it is a long way from the corridor wifi antenna. In fact, I couldn't even get a signal in the bedroom. This is a shame as I couldn't work, though credit must be made to the hotel for offering complimentary throughout the hotel in the first place. Second, the airco unit in the bedroom struggled to keep the room cool (it blew out a lot of air but not much of it was cool).
There are two restaurants in the hotel. The breakfast/lunch one was pretty standard with a reasonably good breakfast on offer. The staff need to be a bit more attentive though. The second restaurant is an Italian one and is excellent. The pasta is made fresh and rolled-out at a station in front of diners. Service is equally good here. My meal was (as was my room) very reasonably priced.
Overall, a very good hotel and one to recommend if staying in Bratislava on business.
