Stayed for 2 nights and despite saying we had a late flight in we were unable to rouse the owner to let us in. Room was fine but very hot! Quaint place, restaurant looked nice, but only open 8-8 Mon-Fri. Backs onto American embassy so quite a lot of security around.

It is absolutely clean and very well situated. You will find everything what you need in your room. A very friendly boy waited for me with the keys and had no problems with coming to prepare breakfast half an hour earlier that it was supposed to be, even if it was to be Sunday morning. Thank you very much, hope... More

This was our first visit to Bratuslava and the guest house met my expectations completely. A very old fashioned and well run establishment with a 2 minute walk to the old town. The owner and staff were always polite and friendly and were able to speak fluent English & German. The rooms are basic but completely acceptable for purpose with... More

Booked at the last minute, arrived late. The owner was welcoming and organized for my arrival. It's a perfect location for exploring old town, walking to the castle, or getting out along the Danube to see the modern city. Breakfast was extremely generous!

I actually liked pretty much everything about Penzion Portus, with one exception, the room. I booked a single but got a large room filled with four fairly basic single beds. Spartan rather than simple but a good bathroom. Both of the staff that I had dealings with were very pleasant and helpful. The location was also ideal for my needs.... More

I'm still shaking my head over my mistake on this one. I believe Booking .com and Trip Advisor have been misrepresented by this place. This business is NOT at all a real penzion as it so claims to be by any stretch of the imagination. Backpacker stop at best. Very small cramped place. The room was as small as a... More

Excellent location, very clean and terrific breakfast. No elevator and lots of stairs, but we had no trouble. Very near the old town - it was a wonderful experience. Only Martin seemed to speak English well, but it was fine because we had one person in our party who spoke Slovak. Everyone was hospitable and I would definitely stay here... More
