“Great hotel in heart of Bratislava”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

This hotel was very good. It is right in the heart of Bratislava, and is the most impressive looking hotel in town. Inside it is very well maintained and has a grand feel to it. It has a small fitness room, and it only drops to four stars as it has no pool, sauna or weights area. Also the breakfast I think was 25 euros extra, I passed on that one.

Room Tip: Try and get room overlooking square.

We've stayed in Bratislava just one night in our way to Prague, so we choosed a symbol hotel for Bratislava. And indeed, Radisson Blu Carlton it is. Reliable, comfortable,decent size of room and bathroom, good beds. We've paid extra for square view (just 10 euro) and in our opinion, worth it. Nice view, especially at night. Very well situated, in the proximity of Danube, Castle(15 min. on foot), in the proximity of Old Center, the area is full of bars and restaurants- so you have a lot of choices and I can add that are cheap ones (compares to Prague or Budapest). Although our room was square view, it's very quiet (pedestrian area in front of hotel- just in one corner it's just beside a tram, but fortunately our room was opposite, near American Embassy).

Room Tip: Square view rooms worth the price

This is a old grand hotel with history. The rooms are large, clean and comfortable. The decor is a little dated, but it is made up for with location, service and the breakfast. Perfect location on a lovely square in the old town. We wandered across the square each evening and dined in a different restaurant. Our room was on the fifth floor, overlooking the square. It was not noisy at all and the view was lovely of both square and castle on the hill. The staff were all very friendly, professional and helpful. The best part of our stay was the buffet breakfast, which included an omelette bar. We will be back.

I stayed for one night while on an Odysseys Unlimited tour. Our room was large, beds were comfortable, and the bathroom was large. The in room Internet did not work. I called the reception desk right after checking in. I was told that they would send a technician. Nobody came. The staff said that it should work. It did not. Later they told me that they would send the technician. A bellman came to tell me that the technician does not work on Sunday. It was Sunday and we left early the next day. If you must be in Bratislava, do not stay on Sunday. Sunday in Bratislava is quiet. No pool, not much to do.

Room Tip: Front rooms had Internet Back rooms did not have internet

The location of this hotel is excellent, just outside the pedestrian area a short walk to the Danube.
It is a typical business hotel but good for a short stay. Rooms are fine , comfy beds, although my daughter would not agree as she had to spend 4 nights on a less than comfortable roll away bed!
Breakfast is good with lots of choice, hot food could have been hotter though. Room cleanliness is not brilliant and tea bags, milk etc not always replaced. Reception staff are very friendly and good at their jobs. Hotel taxi service is excellent, beautiful cars and sometimes half the price of the street taxis. I would recommend this hotel if you want to be near the centre and close to restaurants.

My mother and I stayed here in June 2013 for 5 nights after being informed that we would not be able to stay in our chosen hotel. We had booked a twin room in another hotel but had to be given the Radisson due to the other hotel not taking guests. On arriving at the Radisson we were given a double room and on asking for a twin could not get one as the hotel was fully booked. We were given a camp bed for one night and moved the following day. The receptionist was distracted, lacked a smile and seemed dis-interested to our issue about the room. We could say this about many of the staff - very corporate and lacked helpfulness. However, we did get help from a lovely trainee called Vierka, who helped to relocate us to another room and was understanding of our issue - thank you. Breakfast was very nice with cooked to order omelettes. Nice rooms but the maid removed all shampoo on our second last day so we had to phone late at night to get some just to wash our hair! I left my phone charger in the first room we were given and on relocating realised this and asked to get it back. On going to the room it had dissapeared and the receptionist said there was nothing more she could do. On getting the manager involved it suddenly re-appeared.
Excellent location right in the centre of Bratislava. Just a pity that a few things let this hotel down as certain staff, particulary with first impression on arrival, were less than helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the square as the other rooms face other buildings and there is no view.

I cant think why this hotel hasn't got higher reviews. we stayed for a night in a second floor room overlloking the square and everything from breakfast to the quality of the mattress and the service was top class. If you plan a trip to bratislava dont hesitate, book a room at radisson blu.

Room Tip: if you book a roon on a lower floor you have great view of the square. On the other hand, a room on...
