“Romantic Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2014

The Hotel Michalska Brana is perfectly situated in the Old Town. From the cobbled stoned street out front you can view the Castle to the right and the 'Gate' to the left. It was within easy reach of the best pubs and restaurants in Bratislava. Additionally the amenities were modern and comfortable. It was a great place to relax after a long journey and a perfect base to see local attractions.

Room Tip: The hotel is situated in a cobbled stone side-street, however, it was possible to hear outside noise...

This hotel has it all for a reasonable price. The location is great being close to public transport yet inside the old town walls close to the main street. The building is old and charming but newly renovated and very modern throughout. The staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast was fine with an adequate continental spread including basic hot foods. We had no problems with noise at night, even being on the first floor. For the price this hotel is a definite bargain.

You can't beat this hotel for location and value. The hotel is the Old Town just inside St. Michael's Gate and steps away from the Venturska Michalska -- the main pedestrian shopping street. It is a fabulous location. The hotel was recently renovated and it has all the latest electronic upgrades. You can't beat the hotel for location or value. One challenge is finding the hotel. If you're dropped off by a cab or tram at St. Michael's gate, go down the hill and take the first right on Bastova. You won't be disappointed when you stay here.

This is a lovely hotel in a very 'chitty chitty bang bang' looking side street, in pedestrian only area of the old town. There are restaurants, bars, shopping and markets all in easy walking distance but the hotel still feels miles away from any hustle and bustle. With the castle a short distance from the hotel, we managed to pack quite a lot in over a short period of time.

Super friendly and helpful staff, perfect location. Room was wonderful, clean, comfortable...I felt at home. The bed was soft with two giant pillows. I stayed in room 15 from Friday to Sunday. I heard some noise from the street but nothing that lasted all night into the wee hours of the morning. Very safe and secure although the ally leading to the hotel could be better lit. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay here again!

Stopped here for one night on whistle-stop tour of Budapest, Bratislava and Vienna. Friendly reception, comfy room with good minibar and happy to discover breakfast was included in the price I paid. Nothing especially worthy of note but would have no problem coming back to this hotel if in Bratislava again, and would happily recommend to friends and family.

The hotel sits on a quiet cobblestone street close to old town. We parked at a garage about five minutes away. We had to drag our luggage across the cobblestones and up a small incline to get to the hotel but there is an elevator for easy access to the upper floors. The rooms are modern and sleek but comfortable. The bathroom is spacious and clean. The women at the front desk couldn't have been more patient and helpful - everyone speaks english beautifully. Breakfast was good with a nice variety of food. We would stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Hotel Michalska Brana is located in a very quiet street of the pedestrian zone of the Old Town, Bastova Street 4. Bastova Street is considered to be the narrowest and most romantic street of Bratislava. Street itself tells many stories. It was built in 13th and 14th century and in medieval age and for centuries it used to be famous for being a home of the city hangman. His house was demolished and replaced with a new baroque building in the middle of 18th century right facing the property of our hotel. Hotel Michalska Brana is neighboring to majority of embassies and also therefore our location is very safe. All sights on hand - we are only a 1 minute walk to nearby Saint Michael’s Gate, cafe and entertainment Michalska Street or medieval Kapucinska Street, just about a 5 minute walk to the Opera or Presidential Palace. The nearby Bratislava Castle you can reach in 20 minute walk, which is a time you need to get to Danube River too. ... more   less
