“Excellent location - Excellent staff”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

My wife and I stayed in Portus for 4 nights in January 2013. The place is a walking distance from the old town and all the attractions. Close to public transport as well as 5 min walk to bus line that takes you to Schwechat airport and Wienna.
Owners and staff could not do enough for us! Freshly ground coffee is there 24/7 and free. Rooms are adequate in size, considering that this is a heritage building.
We would stay there again without hesitation!

Room Tip: Our room was looking into a narrow street, so there was hardly any traffic.

Great location in a hugely authentic building. Welcomed on late arrival with a couple of free beers and nuts in the bar/restaurant before checking into a good, clean room with comfortable bedding and recently refurbished bathroom. Heating is individually controlled within the rooms, which are all non-smoking (smoking only in the small bar area on the groud floor).

Service throughout my stay was always very friendly, efficient and eager to make sure I had everything that I wanted, including rustling up a couple of generous vegetarian breakfasts. As with the previous review, I didn't get to sample the food at other times of the day, but the restaurant is constantly full of locals and has a very fun and vibrant atmosphere.

I'm very glad I took the time to have a couple of drinks in the bar and only wish I'd learnt some Slovak before arriving so that I could have joined in to the conversation, though we made ourselves understood with bits of English and German combined. Sitting in the bar felt like one of those real travel experiences that can be so hard to find outside the tourism machine. Excellent value for money and a great find.

Good location close to tram from train station and within quick distance from old town and places to explore. The rooms are a good size and breakfast good variety and quantity. Good value for money.You can have dinner or lunch there but didn't get the change - though given it was very busy guessing its good. Staff helpful and attentive.
