Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 7, 2014

I've spent around 400 nights in hotels over last 4 years (mainly 5 & 4*) and I must say this one is in my top 3. Everything in this hotel is perfect. Staff is very professional and polite, interior design is great, marble bathrooms, hi-tech electronic shower and bath, even smell is better than in the other hotels. They have also great SPA and gym at the top floor with river view.

Additionally they offer once per day a complimentary transfer to city centre with Rolls-Royce Phantom.

The only small disadvantage is club lounge. Comparing to Hilton, evening snack is very limited. There is no full time service, neither reception (in Hilton you can check in and check out there, if you've booked executive room). But I must say it's nice designed, same as rest of the hotel and selection of alcohols is also very good.

It was my first stay in Kempinski, but I will definitely repeat it when possible.

Room Tip: I had 906 (executive room) and it was perfectly ok, but with no panoramic view (limited from 2 sides...

Kempinski is always the mark of luxury. We stayed here for a few nights and really enjoyed everything about the hotel. No stone is left unturned here when it comes to providing the highest quality experience possible. The breakfast each morning was top notch and delicious. The room had a mini bar that was well stocked and complimentary. The rooms were very modern and the bathroom even had digital temperature controls on both the bathtub and shower. The icing the cake was the Rolls Royce you could take to go shopping in the city. This hotel is a must stay if you are ever in Bratislava. You will surely be impressed with the level of luxury afforded to you during the stay.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on a higher levee. The view of the Danube is outstanding.

This hotel, on the Danube River boardwalk in Bratislava, is an excellent chance to enjoy the Kempinski experience, at prices below those of sister hotels in other world capitals. The modern rooms are tastefully decorated and thoughtfully appointed. The staff are friendly and helpful and the main dining room serves world-class 'nouvelle' versions of traditional eastern European cuisine. The top-floor spa has fabulous views and very good services. Highly recommended for a travel stopover or a week-end getaway from Vienna.

Room Tip: Sound insulation is very good, so street-side rooms not an issue, but the best option is certainly t...

The hotel is in an excellent almost a historical location, right in the downtown center close to the old town. Rooms are elegant and cozy, clean homey bathroom. I appreciated mainly the hotel's large wellness. Excellent welcoming service...and very good value for money. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: let them choose the room for you ;)

I have stayed in Hotel for several nights with my boyfriiend. Rooms are pretty nice and you can order additional haircurler or bathsalt, special pillow....what is great. But I have missed a caddle to boil watter....this makes me a little bit sad.....I mean in 5*hotel and aspecialy the most expensive one in area it might be not question....
We saw as well some managers on duty and we were one of the less guest in Lobby and nobody said us even hello....so my feellings were that we are not welcome and we are nothing for this people, hotel,...
However we went for breakfast in main restaurant and we feel very nice the restaurant manager Lukas asked for drink and as well where we are from and so ons.... nice guy. it was pretty nice.
Than I saw again some managers one she had a breakfast next to us. And another guy I saw him as he is picking food.....and nobody said us even hello....
Anyway think it is very unprofessional experience. Such a nice hotel and such easy people in high positions????
Reception and Bar as well nice and welcoming people.
We travel a lot. We have stayed as well in different Kempinsky properties and we were always happy and we WERE WELCOME....
We dont want visit this hotel again.

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay and liked your room, the restaurant and bar and the Room Comfort Menu with additional room amenities on offer. As hotel managers generally do not take breakfast, only with the exception of meeting clients, would you be so kind and contacted the hotel at events.bratislava@kempinski.com with more details on this? Your feedback is highly appreciated and we believe that we will be able to provide you with the service you expect next time you are around.
All the best,
Hotel Management

My boyfriend and I went to Bratislava for 3 nights over New Year and stayed in this hotel. I can honestly say that I couldn't fault it. I have stayed in many 5 star hotels over the years but I can truly say this hotel had the edge. From the second we checked in until the second we checked out, we were treated so well and really well looked after.

The staff could not do enough for us and the room was gorgeous. If I thought oh it would be nice if they had that, I would always find that they not only did they indeed have that but it would exceed our expectations. The complimentary Rolls Royce transfer into town was a delightful added bonus.

Unfortunately we never got a chance to use the Spa due to lack of time but we did go and have a look and it is really lovely.

The location is a little out of the way. About a 20 minute walk into the centre. It's not a problem though and at the end of the night we chose to get a taxi home which wasn't more than about 5 euros so next to nothing! We had heard prior to going to Bratislava to beware of dodgy taxis charging over the odds. We heeded that advice. We found that the company Happy taxis were very reliable and trustworthy. They have their sign on the side of the car, you can't miss it.

When we go back to Bratislava (we found it a charming and friendly little city) we would not dream of ever staying anywhere else. Thanks Kempinski Riverside for a truly memorable New Year.

We spent 2 nights in this great property and we really enjoyed our stay.
Rooms are nice, spacious and tidy. First night we had dinner in the River Bank Restaurant and the dishes were excellent just like the wines. Nice service and kind attention from the staff.
The breakfast is very rich and there is a wide selection of all sorts of food.
The SPA is amazing and a 'must visit' corner of the hotel.
We will go again as soon as we can.
