World-class, in every way.
Hotel Kempinski River Park is situated along the banks of the Danube about a kilometer from Bratislava’s Staré Mesto, Old Town. You can walk to town along the river taking in sights such as the old castle on the hill and St Mary’s church where the Maria Theresa was crowned Empress of Austria Hungary.
If you’re too tired to walk or want a more luxurious way to travel, the hotel’s Rolls Royce is available for a complimentary ride into town.
The rooms are world-class, with sumptuous furnishings and first-rate bed and bath linens. There’s even a pillow menu for those who want/need it.
I have stayed at this hotel dozens of times over the past four years and I have noticed a marked improvement in the restaurant’s menu in the past two years. There are two young Germans who share the Executive Chef title and they have raised the bar on world-class food in Bratislava. They both have a passion for their work and it shows consistently on the plate.
While there are several very good restaurants within easy walking distance from the hotel – all located in River Park – I heartily recommend the hotel’s own Restaurant River Bank. The chefs offer a monthly special menu where they take advantage of local, seasonal ingredients. During July, for example, the menu offered dishes featuring chanterelle mushrooms.
Ratislav Šuták, hotel Sommelier and a Slovak, has been ranked number sommelier in Slovakia. While his expertise covers both old and new world wines, which are on his extensive wine list, Ratislav will happily show you why Slovak wines are as world-class as his hotel.
The Arte Bar looks out across the impressive hotel lobby, and offers what I consider the world’s best Cosmopolitan. It has a stunning array of vodkas too, and the bartenders pour the finest in French Champagnes by the glass.
The Zion Spa is located on the top floor and offers a panoramic view across the river. It's a full service spa which includes fitness center, swimming pool, saunas, whirlpools, classic and Thai massages and other treatments. (Manicures and pedicures are not available).
Bratislava is an historic and interesting world capital. You can see it easily in a day. Do NOT stay anywhere else but the Hotel Kempinski River Park. You will not be disappointed.
