Our large tour group stayed at the Hotel Sorea Regia for two nights mid-June. We were informed that the hotel had recently renovated, and it was only its third week of operation. The hotel is long and linear with three buildings, so it was a rather long walk from the hotel lobby to our room. Also, since its perched on a rather steep hillside, the three buildings are on slightly staggered levels - therefore, requiring luggage to be bounced on a flight of stairs from the first level of the middle section of the building to another section. the neighborhood - its in a standard residential neighborhood on the steep hillside, and had it not been for our amazing driver, the bus mightve not been able to get close to the hotel through its narrow streets.
Now for the room itself - I was a bit worried after reading three-year-old reviews about this hotel on tripadvisor, but the room was surprisingly rather modern and trendy. Then again, the entire hotel just experienced a modern makeover. There's a nice row of roomy closets on the left side of the room across from a rather spacious (as far as hotels go) bathroom. The sleeping area was a standard western-hotel shaped, with two twin beds (and a third bed aka modified loveseat closest to the window). About the window/door to the patio - extremely weird. the door has two modes, a mode where you can use it as a legitimate door to get to the patio (overlooking a graveyard. spooky/weird location-wise). The second mode opened the top of the door vertically so when one of us accidentally discovered it, we thought the door was about to collapsed and phoned maintenance. Turns out that's supposed to be an open window sort of effect. Rather... interesting
Breakfast is standard european hotel fare, with nice cold cuts and pastries with eggs and sausages. There's a really interesting "vitamin drink" that tastes like an over sweetened medicine-tasting orange juice flavored concoction. Again, interesting, but I went back to my apple juice afterwards.
Overall, the stay was extremely nice and pleasant (discounting all the mosquitoes from the humid weather that gave way too many bites while we slept, but that wasnt the hotel's problem), and the hotel's renovation makes it a very excellent value for touristing in Bratislava.
