We recently had to travel to Blava for an appointment at the US Embassy, and we booked two rooms for two nights as a reward reservation. (At 10,000 points per room per night, this is a steal!)
We were checked in quickly and efficiently, and we all got a delicious cookie. The staff were very apologetic that adjoining rooms weren't available, and they said they would try to get us adjoining rooms the next day, which they did.
Our (identical) rooms were comfortable, though the AC system took some figuring to get it to work. That evening we had dinner at Towers Steaks which is an easy walking distance from the hotel (see my review of that place, too.... excellent!).
Dusan, at the front desk, was most helpful in giving us advice on how to get to the Embassy on public transit. He even asked us the following day when we checked out how our visit to the embassy went, nice attention to detail!
The second night we actually had dinner in the restaurant. Contrary to the other review about the place, our server, Robert, was attentive, and professional. Our food was delicious, and accommodated our requests for our girls to split their meal on two plates (this is not always the case in Slovakia!) Also, the bartender makes a mean Negroni, I had two!
Our girls loved the pool, which is very modern and clean. I went into the sauna twice. I can say I've stayed at a lot of Hilton properties in Europe, and this Doubletree has by far the hottest sauna, which is a good thing!
My only gripes are that the wifi in our room was a little weak, but it consistently worked (we were on the seventh floor, perhaps we were too far away from the router), and occasionally the hot water in the shower would turn cold all of a sudden. The location is a bit distant from downtown, but it's easy enough to get to Stare Mesto by public transit or by taxi (we didn't use the taxi because we didn't have car seats.)
If you were attending a concert at the hocky arena next door, this would be the place to stay! I know we'll be staying here next time we're in Bratislava.
If you're getting a reward reservation, the 'deluxe room' is the same point cost as a re...
