We used this hotel many time with little children. How did is start? Sometime around mid 1990s we looked for a hotel that would be good for our family (two of us plus two daughters). We took a hotel list from yellow pages and called one by one. Hotels there were far from being friendly, and Astra was the first place, where they were polite and helpful.
We boked that time, and ever since when we were in Bratislava (at least once a year) two rooms in Hotel Astra. We stayed in the bigger one (one double bed and a single one that we did not use) and our daughters occupied the smaller one (twin room). The shared bathroom was not an issue, because we shared it within a family, and we had access to our children. It is not so easy to travel with small children and have the in a separate room. It is not nice to have them in the same room as parents. So the setup of Astra was just fitting to us. Maybe it cold be your case as well.
We always booked over the phone or e-mail, the room was waiting for us, even without a credit card.
We always used the hotel parking that is guarded 24/24, 7/7 -- with our car or a rental one, it was comfortable. There is a nice and reasonable priced breakfast room on the first floor.
The hotel hosts the oldest Chinese restaurant in Bratislava. It is really good. When you want to have a cheaper formula, there is a buffet section. We go to the a la carte part, and we are satisfier, even if that is not for budget travellers. The main road may be noisy, but don't go to Bratislava, if you dislike a busy city. The hotel has a distance from the road, double windows andhalf of the room face the other side. Myself I like the road, I like to watch people going after their business, I like the city, and this is a quiet part of the city. You shouod take a trolleybus to the city, but that is easy. Don't forget to stamp you ticket inside the vehicle as soon as you get one (I use rental cars).
Our daughters are adults now, they do not go on holidays to Bratislava with us anymore. As we love this hotel, we book a suite with an ample living, very nice berdroom, beautiful furnishing and an ample dressing.
There is a refigerator, but you have to fill it in yourselves. Should you wish to have a room service and a minibar, then book Radisson, and accept the higher price. This one is just exceeding its two or three stars classification.
