“Worth every one of its three stars and more!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

We stayed in this hotel in the Summer of '13 during a heat wave, and it's comfortable and well-decorated rooms, and the hotel's shady garden, provided a welcome retreat from the 35 degree heat! The staff were pleasant and friendly, and the breakfast provided was very generous. If you enjoy good Slovak beer, there are several excellent micro-breweries and bars nearby, including one in the same street (Richtar Jakub) which the hotel can direct you to. Recommended.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Rooms neat and clean and staff ultra helpful, even did a load of washing for me. Close to old town but in a quiet location. Would recommend to anyone and try the local beers in the pub just down the road!

We booked this hotel for our film crew for few nights. It is a very nice hotel, great location. It has beautigul garden and the staff is nice and helpful. Rooms are a bit old fashioned, but they were nice and clean so I don't see a problem in it. I would recommend this hotel if you're looking for a good value hotel in great location.

I had a nice surprise to find such a spacious and comfortable room for a 3* hotel. And I must mention the kindness and disponibility of the staff - incredible nice persons. I was pleased that I could simply walk to the city center, but also I could easily reach the bus/tram/trollyebus stops when I needed to go on a long distance. As I travelled in April, the temperature in the room was very good, but I don't know about it in the summer time, as the room hasn't air conditioning. Overall, a very pleasant staying for me, I warmly recommend this hotel.

This is a very good value hotel which is very well-run. The rooms are clean, well appointed and very comfortable. The staff and owners are really helpful and kind and are willing to do anything to help. The hotel is about 10 minutes walk from the centre so you are close to all the main attractions in the city, but the area which the hotel itself is in is very quiet and calm. I felt very much at home while staying there and would absolutely recommend it to anyone visiting Bratislava. Thanks for a really nice stay.

Cosy and quiet, good internet in the rooms, friendly atmosphere, very good for commercial travellers. This old and refurbished building makes the visitor feel at home. To improve, it could have a restaurant for dinner, however there is a very good chinese restaurant near by. Highly recommended for comfy and relaxing holidays.

Spacious, well appointed rooms with extremely high ceilings with very smart bathrooms in a quiet street. No air conditioning so room could get very hot. Luckily I had a balcony with pull out blind to protect from the heat of 30 / 35 0 C plus. There isn't an elevator. A little disappointed with one of the receptionists who was not friendly or overally helpful particularly as Arcus prides itself on it being a family hotel which is one of the reasons I had chosen it. One receptionist was delightful. I do feel for them as their office space is extremely hot without fan or air conditioning which wouldn't improve their temperament. The staff at breakfast were friendly, however, breakfast not overally exciting. About 10 minute walk to the bus station and 15 minute walk from downtown. Conflicting advice regarding public transport to train station. Bratislava is a delightful town with energy - take the opportunity to visit the riverbank cafes/ restaurants / bars - Eurovea complex.

Room Tip: Many rooms get the hot sun all day so request a room at the back overlooking the garden or one with...
