“Best Location on the Danube”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

We picked Botel Gracia because of the cheap room rate and the fact it is right on the Danube river, with great views of the bridge and UFO tower. The rooms are simple, but comfortable and it's kind of cool to have the water rushing past your window. It's pretty quiet on the river side, hardly any noise. The staff are friendly and accommodating. It is the perfect location to jump into the Old town, simply walk across the road next to the bridge and turn right. It will take you directly towards the cafes and St Michael's gate. If you continue further and travel left under the bridge, you can follow the signs to the Castle and a great view of the city at the top. The Botel is ideally situated to see everything in the city.

Room Tip: Ask for a river side room as it's quiet and has a great view!

Rooms were a good size, food was good, drinks were the best prices in town. All in all an excellent place to stay, I would stay again anytime. The staff were just brilliant, smiles and very accommodating.

Three persons shared a room comfortably and without other huge facilities such as swimming pool, gardens and other stuff, because its a botel. Simply enjoy the view of the city and the UFO tower. Its amazing. Really helpful staff in all terms. And the hotel WIFI is the best I have seen so far.

Room Tip: Go for the lower most deck for cool night. Or go to the top floor restaurant for a beautiful view.

Nice experience staying on a boat in the river. The view was wonderfull. The room and especially the toilet too small. The breakfast nice. Too close to the center of the old town. Free internet. No fridge or air condition in the room. Take bus No50 from central bus station for 3 stops to get to the hotel.

First of all, it is a boat so don't expect swimming pools, tennis court or a huge parking lot - you get none of these but the experience is like no other. The rooms are not huge - again people, it is a boat! - but we were able to share between the 3 of us without much problem. Clean linen, fresh paint, new carpets, the boat seems to have been recently remodeled which was a nice surprise.
I loved breakfast, good variety and well served.
And the Botel is just a few steps away from the old city, an incredibly good location.
Oh and the botel does not move ... it is anchored and tied to the shore so only minimal movements can be felt - if any. Even my wife was OK with it ...We spent 2 nights and she only mentioned it once, but I am sure it was only a fruit of her imagination.
You will however have problems if you are driving - parking in central Bratislava is very expensive. The Botel has 4 - yes, only 4 - parking spaces so lose any hopes of parking in front of the place. We had to drive back across the bridge to find a parking spot. We walked back over the bridge, about 2KM walk but a taxi is an obvious option. Parking n the lot at Carlton hotel costs EUR 67.50 a day, which is almost what we paid for the room.

Room Tip: Try to ask for rooms away from the street for a nicer view.
