The hotel is located in the Old Town and the wall opposite the main door is covered in graffitti but don't be put off. The location is great for the city and the premises are great. Friendly reception staff. good rooms (which are doubleglazed for any sound problems and it has Air con) Breakfast basic but good. Nice garden at the rear. All in all a good choice.
Travel to Vienna is easy with the bus from Novy Most (centre-underneath bridge) for 12 euros return. Good and efficient. Bus station in Vienna is edge of town but right near easy to use and cheap Metro)
One recommended trip is Authenticslovakia.com. They took four of us around the city for over two hours visiting more 'out of the way places' from communist past. Nice young lad who was open to discussing anything about his countries culture, tradititions or lifestyle. They also arranged an airport transfer door to door in a nice Merc for 23 Euros for the four of us.
