Stayed here for 3 nights whilst passing through Central Europe.

Excellent communication from the hotel enabled me to find it easily enough from the railway station. Whilst the area are the train station seems rather rough and disconcerting the area around the hotel is fine.

Room spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Wifi worked well on iPhone though dropped out quite often, didn't work well on laptop at all though.

Never tried breakfast or food in the hotel so can't comment. Location quiet and about a 10 min was into the old town.

The hotel seems to be in a period of transition as the larger signs with the 'Abba' name are covered over - potentially about to change hands?

Only negative is the fact that there are always two uniformed security guards situated in the lobby. Certainly never saw any need for these during my stay as Bratislava was very quiet and felt very safe. Found them disconcerting, although perhaps they are useful if they have stag parties or similar staying.

Overall a clean and comfortable hotel within easy reach of the old town. Recommended

I travelled to Bratislava with 2 friends and booked 1 room for the three of us. Overall the hotel was fine, clean, and spacious and service good, everything you would expect for a new hotel.

A few grumbles...

1 - The WIFI in certain parts of the hotel is poor. Some days it just would not connect and when it did it was extremely slow. Too slow for it to be any use.

2 - The third bed provided was 'flimsy' to say the least, it wasn't particularly comfortable. It was very much like sleeping on a military camp bed. (Not great for rest when you've been out sight saying all day)

3 - The phone in the room for all of the 5 days of my stay did not work, despite reporting this on day 2 and being told it would be fixed, it never was.

We stayed in this hotel for a night while visiting Bratislava and booked the presidential suite for €130. For this we got: 2 enormous double ensuite bedrooms connected by a seating area with 2 sofas, a table with overflowing complimentary fruit bowl and a plasma TV. We loved the lighting options in the bedrooms, the space, the drapes, the comfort of the beds, the fact that there was a beautiful corner enclosed terrace off one of the bedrooms (little room) with table and chairs for an evening drink, a plasma Tv also in each bedroom. Both bathrooms were spotlessly clean and spacious with shower gel and shampoo dispensers, tooth brush and paste, shoe shine, shower cap etc (no conditioner though). There was a stocked mini fridge with 2 bars of chocolate, a small Pringles (€3 - €3.50 each), beers (€2.70), juices etc. There were tea and coffee-making facilities in each room though with only 2 coffee sachets in each. We had to ask for more. At first, the heating was hard to control but we managed to set it to a suitable temperature. City tax was charged at €6.60 for the night. We walked the 8 minutes to the train station to continue on to Budapest. We really enjoyed our stay in the Abba hotel, Bratislava.

Room Tip: The 2 room presidential suite! Room 224.

Stayed here for 4 nights with my friend to do some sight seeing. Hotel is new and very contemporary the breakfast area is metal cage like seats, just like in the pictures. If you don't like a clean smart ikea look then this hotel won't be for you. I thought it was great, very clean, helpful staff, fab location. We paid for an upgraded room and WOW is was huge with a great view of the palace gardens. Location is great for sight seeing as the train station is a 5min walk so you can jump the train to Vienna takes about 1 hour. We met with friend who stayed round the corner at the crown plaza, they preferred our hotel as it felt brighter, cleaner with a modern feel.

I would definitely stay here again, great for business travellers and for the modern tourist

The hotel is located very close to the main train station. You take the bus from the airport and it takes you to the train station. The hotel is a 10 minute walk from there.
The rooms are nice and spacious. The staff is welcoming and friendly.
Would definitely recommend for an easy and comfortable stay.
