“Don't Come Early”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

The location of this hotel is excellent and it is a good base for exploring the best parts of Bratislava. The decor is a little fru-fru for my taste but my wife loved it. We had flown all night from Dulles to Vienna and we appeared at their desk at 10AM on a Sunday morning. The desk people seemed powerless in a sort of follow-the-rules German sort of way. In some countries they might have found us a room that was ready. Here they basically said, "Go away. Your room is not ready. Not our problem." We went away and wandered the city - having been awake 27 hours by then. We finally came back and dozed on some uncomfortable antique furniture in the lobby. When the room was ready we learned that the shower had no drainage and all of the water flooded out of the bathroom into the bedroom. They sent a maid when they needed a plumber.

Room Tip: They have rooms on a light shaft with no views at all. You don't want one of those.

A long weekend was spend at the Arcadia ...... the hotel was beautiful, clean and nothing was any trouble for the staff. You always had a welcoming smile and staff were more than happy to answer any / all questions we had. Their English was very good which made the whole experience easier. The hotel is almost right in the centre of Bratislava and walking to all the museums, shopping centre and Danude is very easy within 10 - 15 minutes.
I could not fault anything about the Arcadia and would highly recommend this hotel to anyone thinking about a trip to Bratislava :-)

Our room was charming with very comfortable beds. The staff is courteous and willing to meet any need that presented itself. The European Breakfast included eggs and bacon on request. We were within walking distance of numerous sights and restaurants.

What a great Boutique Hotel right in the heart of Hlavna Namastie in Bratislava! Anyone who really wants to experience the old world charm, then the Arcadia Hotel is a MUST!
Wonderful staff, each room very unique and slightly different. A truly old world charmer restored to it's beauty!
When you walk out of the Hotel, you walk right out onto cobble stone pedestrian only walking areas and old town!

Worth every penny!

Can recomend this hotel to anyone going to Bratislava with friends or partner. Located in the middle of Old Town, pedestrian area. Nice staff, helped us organize transport to Vienna, to the airport and tips about dining out.

Good breakfast, nice little spa in the basement. Spaceus rooms

This hotel is just wonderful. It is located on the edge of Bratislava's old town, easy walking distance from all of the attractions in the old town, the castle, the passenger port, railway station and main shopping street, in a quiet little side street. The building has a fascinating history and while the age of the building means that the rooms are quite small and that you can sometimes hear a small amount of noise in the hallways outside your room, it is very charming and cosy.

The staff are the real drawcard here though - efficient, friendly and very, very helpful. They helped with rail timetables, boat tickets, taxis and transfers, guided tours - nothing was too much trouble. They arranged a wonderful guided tour of the Small Carpathians for me that I thoroughly enjoyed. I also dined in the restaurant on the first night of my visit and enjoyed its lovely food and the very attentive service of the restaurant staff. The breakfasts here at this hotel are also very good - pastries, toast, cheeses, cold meats, fruit and a small selection of hot dishes, including potato cakes (delicious), bacon and sausages.

I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel and am grateful to the staff for helping to make my stay in Bratislava so enjoyable.
