The Old City Hotel is cheap and basic but was clean and a great location in the centre of the Old City so ideal for a short break, close to cafes and restaurants. We stayed for 2 nights and it was fine, a little noisy at night time but that's what you expect due to it's location. Yes it is... More

The hotel's listing on Booking.com failed to mention the 5 flights of stairs. There was no breakfast. The room was up a spiral staircase, not easy with luggage. There were ants crawling over the floor. When I expressed my dismay and asked if I could cancel, I was told I would have to pay regardless. Avoid at all costs.

This hotel is right in the middle of the old town so extremely convenient. The rooms are minimalist in design, stylishly furnished and spotlessly clean. They have tea/coffee-making facilities which is a nice touch. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The price was very reasonable. The only disadvantage is that we were kept awake by marauding hordes of tourists... More

The room, location, receptionists were excellent, but the maid (Zuzana) spoiled the whole stay with her very stupid comments after we checked out. She knew we were still at the reception but never realized that one of us is Slovak... Next time, dear Zuzana, keep your comments for yourself unless the guests are gone. And once again, big thanks to... More

AVOID AT ALL COSTS! The planned two night break shortly turned into a 12 hour ordeal, upon which we were trapped in our room for the duration of our stay with a chair wedged into our locked door due to fear of our safety. We realised on booking that we were not going to a high class resort and were... More

The Location of this Hotel is perfect! You are right in the heart of Bratislava and can reach the other attractions by foot in less than 15 minutes. The rooms are ok for this Price. The furniture was really nice but the bathroom could be more clean. There was "no" Service because we've benn there through the Christmas time.

Stayed as a couple for two nights. Upgraded to a comfort room with en suite and glad as bathrooms are scattered on different floors. The hotel can seem a little seedy with a thai massage parlour (open till 2am, take that as you will) on the floor below and a topless champagne bar in the basement. The hotel room was... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the old town and therefore perfect for discovering Bratislava. Our room was huge and the interior elegant. Due to being located in a small mall with bar it was sometimes quite loud at night.

Arrived earlier than expected and we were greeted with a smile and checked in very efficiently. Hotel had noted my requests for a quiet room on a high floor. We had room 12 which was lovely. Hotel is right in the old town and so central to everything, surrounded by lovely shops and restaurants. Would stay here again as it... More

Price, location and staff are ok. 97 steps to climb to the room in the attic, cigarette smoke in the reception area, and noise from the street at 2, 3 AM can be forgiven considering the low price. Bedbugs / mosquitoes are a deal breaker. I was bitten on my face, neck, shoulders, legs, knees, and back. Avoid at all,price... More
