“Beautiful, Comfortable Hotel, So-So Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

This hotel is modern, clean and surprisingly beautiful. It looks like it was either recently built or recently renovated. The public areas and restaurants have a chic, contemporary feel. Rooms are spacious, with floor to ceiling windows, high ceilings and gorgeous, modern bathrooms with heated floors. Beds were fairly firm and comfortable. Service at the front desk was friendly and professional. There was free wi-fi that WORKED - yay!

The location is not scenic and is a little ways out from the city center. You would not want to walk it. We did not take public trans into the city center, but I saw a tram line on the street in front of the hotel, so it is probably do-able.

We almost never eat dinner at the hotel, but in this case we knew we would be arriving in Bratislava late, and we got a great deal on a dinner and breakfast package. Both the front desk and the restaurant staff seemed unfamiliar with this package, so it was not clear what was included, but they were very nice about it and told us we could order whatever we wanted to eat, and we were only charged for wine and some extra sparkling water. Our waiter, Richard, was courteous and obviously well-trained. He got all the details right, serving from the left, clearing from the right, proper placement of utensils, etc. The food (Italian) was very good, and we loved the Slovak red wine. The only peculiar thing about the restaurant was that they seemed to have the same album (Parov Stelar) on repeat all night. We enjoyed the music and it fit well with the vibe of the restaurant, but about the fifth time through, we were wishing for something else.

Breakfast was another story. The selection was okay, but not as good as a typical Hilton. There was one kind of bread, albeit good, some so-so pastries, and the "muffins" tasted like something made from a cake mix a week ago. There was a not so great brand of strawberry and vanilla yogurt in individual cups, cereals, fresh and dried fruit, and nuts. The bacon looked way undercooked, the French toast like none I have ever seen and smelled a little too savory, and the scrambled eggs looked completely runny and indelible. The Slovak sausages, cold cuts and cheese were good, and the oatmeal was okay. There was hardly anyone in the restaurant, yet it took about 15 minutes to get coffee. Maybe it was an off day and items were not fresh because there were so few people there. Maybe during slow times of the year, they should just offer a cooked to order breakfast instead of a lame buffet. We were there right after Christmas - probably not a busy time for them.

Overall, the hotel and staff really are very good, and if not for the location and slightly disappointing breakfast, I would have given this place 5 stars, I would consider staying there again if we get the same good rate.

I typically stay in Hilton hotels when I travel abroad...I stayed at the new Doubletree at Bratislava and the hotel was gorgeous!!! this is probably one of the nicest Doubletree in the WORLD! If you are a hockey fan, this hotel is adjacent to the hockey stadium in Bratislava. The location is not the best as far as attractions...but the hotel makes up for it..

Excellent, modern hotel, opened just 2 years ago. I stayed there already couple of times, always being impressed by the people working there and the work they do. They are always helpful, trying to answer all questions and giving the advice on interesting places and hints on Bratislava. The rooms are modern, everything is pretty new. Wifi connection is very good, nice TV sets with a large number of TV channels from different countries. If you want to visit the downtown, you have to use the taxi or public transportation - walking time is at least 20 - 25 minutes. I always have ver good breakfast with a variety of warm and cold dishes, fruits, and drinks. The coffee has a good taste which is not always the case in the hotels. Usually I drive by car there and the hotel is easily achieveable from different directions. Everything in the hotel is clean. I like also the bed there, it is large and really comfortable.

Room Tip: I recommend Deluxe rooms. They are large and comfortable with nice facilities.

I see the world via the US fencing association schedule, and just finished a stay in Bratislava. Hands down, this is the nicest Doubletree I have ever stayed in. The rooms are beautiful, with cutting edge modern design. The views are, well, what the industrial outskirts of the city have to offer, which in November are gray and rainy on top of the urban/industrial that is the hotel's surrounding. The beautiful downtown? Lovely, but 10-15 minutes drive. Proximity to the way too small venue for fencing or hockey stadium? 2 blocks. The very well stocked Billa grocery is also quite close, which is great for the always-starving athlete. Super glue (mask repair) was .39!

The breakfast had everything you could want, from cooked to order eggs to pastries, to cold cuts, cheese, fruit and rolls in a lovely, modern setting. Nicer than the Hilton Vienna Plaza in terms of rooms and breakfast, hands down. Will book for next year's competition without a doubt.

Room Tip: The upgrade (715 in our case) was huge, with an AMAZING bathroom. Heated floors, rain head shower ou...

We (2 adults and 2 children) stayed in a superior room for a night. The room was large, quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was very good with cook-to-order eggs. The walk to the historical centre took about 40 minutes. Though there are very frequent and convenient bus to the historical centre and the airport.

The staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly.

We would stay here again.

In the wellness area of this hotel, there is a 12 metres long swimmingpool a fitnessroom and sauna. The pool is small, but clean, The sauna next to it is a disgusting horror experience! Towells all over on the floor, hotelguests using the hot sauna with their bathclothes on......lamps inside the sauna not working, so it is like completely dark there, no separate area for women to take shower in the sauna area.....employees rather watching TV broadcast, rather than looking after the cleanliness and tidiness in the so called wellness area. Do not recommend to go there at all, especially women.

Room Tip: Dont take a room facing the big street opposite the hotel, rather the one on the backside of the hot...

I could not believe that there were hotels of this quality in this price range!
Although the rack rates were about right, they had a monthly promotion and with corporate discount it was a four plus star hotel for two star price!
On top of all that, they upgraded me to a room the size of the average Slovak family apartment!
Spotlessly clean, elegant and service to die for.
There was a different corporate promotion each evening with live music on the mezzanine, but not a peep of this was audible in my room.
Room service is pricey though - London rates, but the restaurant was reasonable and quality well up there.
It's a business hotel though, ideal for corporates. Though the ice hockey arena is just 25 metres down the block.
Strongly recommended - I liked it !!!
