Although Botel Gracia has some excellent aspects, it does have some aspects which they need to improve upon to take the botel to the next level. (hence naming this review a diamond in the rough).
Firstly, Botel Gracia is quirky (well it is a boat on the mighty danube!) and about a 5 minute walk into Bratislava's historic old town and the spectacular Bratislava castle (which is visible from the hotel provided you have a city facing room or cabin.) Also, the staff were always very very polite, helpful and were able to offer advice and book taxis etc.
That said, the botel has some serious aspects which limit it. The first issue we had was the air conditioning (or lack of). Unfortunately none of the rooms have air conditioning which can make sleeping very very very difficult especially in the heat of the summer. The other area that limited this botel was the noise in city facing rooms (as it is on the promenade and one of Bratislava's main streets. Unfortunately the windows were not double glazed so the noise sometimes kept us awake.
When I am asked can I recommend a hotel, I ask myself would I want to spend another night or two here and I think I probably would so if you are staying in Bratislava, (provided they make the above changes), I would defiantly stay here again especially when one considers the price.
