Very beautiful hotel, located in a residencial area of Bratislawa, a bit far away from the downtown, but anyway, great place. Very big and comfortable rooms, clean, my room had a great balcony with table+4 chairs, great to have a drink or enjoy the evening......all that fantastic and great if you are on vacations, or on a romantic week-end with wife/husband/partner.
I landed here because the usual hotels I use in Bratislawa were all full (Sheraton, Crown Plaza) and my assistant told me that our travel agent recommended this place. I was on business, with a very tight agenda. Landed at Vienna Airport from London at 11:00PM, took a Taxi, arrived at the hotel 11:50PM, very tired and dying from hunger.....at check in asked the reception if I could get something to eat, and they told me that no, nothing, and in the area there was simply nothing to buy. The guy at reception told me I should try the mini-bar from the room.....therefore, my dinner was 2 packs of Pringles chips, and honey roasted almonds from the mini-bar. I also asked for wireless internet, and they told me that in the room only wired, and wireless in the lobby, meaning that after a day full of meetings, rush to Heathrow, full flight, etc, I was not able to sit in my bed and check some mails and presentation material. Much less personalized than at the Albrecht, but it is clear that something like this (which I give a lot of value when travelling on business) would have never happened in a 5-star chain hotel like the mentioned at the beginning of the review.
Bottom line, very beautiful place, and will come back, but with my wife on a romantic week-end.......but for my next business trip to Bratislawa, will certainly go to the hotels I usually do.
