“Too many restaurants”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

This is not a huge area and there are some historical buildings, churches etc. but most of the space is taken up by restaurants. Normal shops take up the remainder of the area.

“Bratislava Old Town - a must see”
Reviewed August 8, 2014

The Old Town area is a place you need to visit in Bratislava. This is the original area of the city with old beautiful buildings, churches, shops and restaurants. There was live music in multiple areas.

“Ok - but overcrowded ”
Reviewed August 7, 2014 via mobile

The old town has a couple of nice streets, the most beautiful ones being overrun with tourists. Stag parties, day tour groups from Vienna and lots of commercial outings. The town has the potential to be nice, but has an unfriendly public transport system, hardly any street lights out of the old city centre. If you stay close to the Danube banks - it's fine, if you visit the rest of the city - not worth the effort. Good for a day trip, nothing more.
