“An excellent choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I had a nice surprise to find such a spacious and comfortable room for a 3* hotel. And I must mention the kindness and disponibility of the staff - incredible nice persons. I was pleased that I could simply walk to the city center, but also I could easily reach the bus/tram/trollyebus stops when I needed to go on a long distance. As I travelled in April, the temperature in the room was very good, but I don't know about it in the summer time, as the room hasn't air conditioning. Overall, a very pleasant staying for me, I warmly recommend this hotel.

This is a very good value hotel which is very well-run. The rooms are clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The staff and owners are really helpful and kind and are willing to do anything to help. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the centre so you are close to all the main attractions in the city, but the area which the hotel itself is in is very quiet and calm. I felt very much at home while staying there and would absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting Bratislava. Thanks for a really nice stay.

Cosy and quiet, good internet in the rooms, friendly atmosphere, very good for commercial travellers. This old and refurbished building makes the visitor feel at home. To improve, it could have a restaurant for dinner, however there is a very good chinese restaurant near by. Highly recommended for comfy and relaxing holidays.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Spacious, well appointed rooms with extremely high ceilings with very smart bathrooms in a quiet street. No air conditioning so room could get very hot. Luckily I had a balcony with pull out blind to protect from the heat of 30 / 35 0 C plus. There isn't an elevator. A little disappointed with one of the receptionists who was not friendly or overally helpful particularly as Arcus prides itself on it being a family hotel which is one of the reasons I had chosen it. One receptionist was delightful. I do feel for them as their office space is extremely hot without fan or air conditioning which wouldn't improve their temperament. The staff at breakfast were friendly, however, breakfast not overally exciting. About 10 minute walk to the bus station and 15 minute walk from downtown. Conflicting advice regarding public transport to train station. Bratislava is a delightful town with energy - take the opportunity to visit the riverbank cafes/ restaurants / bars - Eurovea complex.

Room Tip: Many rooms get the hot sun all day so request a room at the back overlooking the garden or one with...

We had a great room, no.8. I am sure it is above average, with a large bathroom. The only negative is that Bratislava had near-record heat and there is no a/c. Opening the windows helped but then there was some street noise and in June the sun was up at 4AM. So ear plugs and an eye mask were needed. It is a narrow building and our room was up two big flights of stairs. We were able to park in one of the reserved spots they have on the street in front of their hotel for an extra fee but I think they only have 2 or 3 spots so that could be an issue - they do say to reserve parking when making your reservation. Included breakfast was fine. It is outside the old town area but tram lines were close and Bratislava is not that big anyway. Lots of restaurants nearby. Overall a very good room and location for the price.

Room Tip: Room 08 was great.

We spent almost six weeks in Bratislava at Hotel Arcus. It is a small hotel located in a residential neighborhood near a university, restaurants, stores, banks, a grocery store, gardens and public transportation. The neighborhood is safe. Because of our lengthy stay we got to know the staff. Without exception they were helpful, tried to accommodate any needs and were always friendly. Our room was large and very clean. Breakfast is limited but good. Public transportation is easy to use and very convenient to the hotel. The hotel is an easy 15 minute walk to the old town area. Bratislava is situated between Vienna and Budapest. Trains from Bratislava are very reasonable and run frequently between both cities. If you want to use a cab have the hotel call one for you. We may be returning to Bratislava next year and we would not hesitate to stay at Hotel Arcus again.
