“Isolated on some hill, close to the Danube River”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

If you're looking for some quiet hotel, with a good (cable) internet connection, then this place may be the right one for you. It looks almost luxury, for a very reasonnable price. Rooms are large enough when you're on a business trip. You may work and relax. The tram takes you anywhere in the city.

Room Tip: Your room may be difficult to find because once you arrive on the right floor with the elevator, the...

Good: very helpful and polite personnel, very clean rooms, spacious (for hotel's class), clean bathroom, nice furniture, internet in the room (cable only), WiFi in lobby and restaurant area, decent breakfast, decent restaurant for low prices, private parking for a small fee, nice location (quiet, a lot of nature, placed in a 15-20 minutes walking distance from the city Center).
Bad: only minor things (not so important): internet in the rooms available only by cable (no WiFi in the room), slow upload speeds, poor coffee at breakfast.
Note: steep road access, so take care during the winter.
We stayed there for two nights and we would come back to the same hotel in Bratislava. We would recommend this hotel to our friends.

Room Tip: You may choose rooms facing Danube river, although it's not possible to see the river. The view...

Reservation via e-mail was unproblematic. The kompetent staff kept my reservation until late (arrival around 11 pm). However, the rooms were very simple, the minibar was not stocked, the TV broken, wireless internet nowhere possible (not even in the lobby). The breakfast buffet was basic but the coffee ok. The hotel is somehow remotely located (uphill from the river). But there is a tram stop very close. Trams are running frequently and in 10 Minutes you are in the center of the city.

Hotel was not so easy to find as well with GPS. The hotel name is not visible from target street.
TV remote control at reception desk, if staff forgot to give it to you then you need to request it.
Minus is empty minibar and no air conditioner in a standard rooms, only business.
When you make a reservation then the hotel will keep your payment until your stay in the hotel!
Breakfast bufet is poor.

Our large tour group stayed at the Hotel Sorea Regia for two nights mid-June. We were informed that the hotel had recently renovated, and it was only its third week of operation. The hotel is long and linear with three buildings, so it was a rather long walk from the hotel lobby to our room. Also, since its perched on a rather steep hillside, the three buildings are on slightly staggered levels - therefore, requiring luggage to be bounced on a flight of stairs from the first level of the middle section of the building to another section. the neighborhood - its in a standard residential neighborhood on the steep hillside, and had it not been for our amazing driver, the bus mightve not been able to get close to the hotel through its narrow streets.
Now for the room itself - I was a bit worried after reading three-year-old reviews about this hotel on tripadvisor, but the room was surprisingly rather modern and trendy. Then again, the entire hotel just experienced a modern makeover. There's a nice row of roomy closets on the left side of the room across from a rather spacious (as far as hotels go) bathroom. The sleeping area was a standard western-hotel shaped, with two twin beds (and a third bed aka modified loveseat closest to the window). About the window/door to the patio - extremely weird. the door has two modes, a mode where you can use it as a legitimate door to get to the patio (overlooking a graveyard. spooky/weird location-wise). The second mode opened the top of the door vertically so when one of us accidentally discovered it, we thought the door was about to collapsed and phoned maintenance. Turns out that's supposed to be an open window sort of effect. Rather... interesting
Breakfast is standard european hotel fare, with nice cold cuts and pastries with eggs and sausages. There's a really interesting "vitamin drink" that tastes like an over sweetened medicine-tasting orange juice flavored concoction. Again, interesting, but I went back to my apple juice afterwards.
Overall, the stay was extremely nice and pleasant (discounting all the mosquitoes from the humid weather that gave way too many bites while we slept, but that wasnt the hotel's problem), and the hotel's renovation makes it a very excellent value for touristing in Bratislava.

I stayed in Bratislava for 3 days for a conference visit. The conference was organized in this hotel so it made sense to stay there, as well.

The hotel is quite a strange mix of pros and cons:

+ Good location with nice and quiet surrounding and close to the castle and downtown

+ Reasonably new and modern furniture

+ Reasonable (though not very high quality) breakfast and food

- Weary and poorly maintained building;
the corridors look like those of an old hospital (with white florescent lamps)

- Poor cleaning service. There was no toilet paper and shampoo at arrival. One day they did not clean the room at all and when asked for it, shampoo and soap were not recharged.

Some people at the front desk were kind and helpful and some were truly useless. When my taxi to the airport was late for about 15 minutes, the lady at the desk was reluctant to call the taxi servcie.

All in all, it is ok to stay at this hotel for a short period but if I will visit Bratislava again, I will definitely look for a better place to stay.

This hotel seems still very much living in the communist era. There is a curious combination of an abundance of some things (large room space, huge quantities of pretty good decent food, etc.) and a lacking of other basics. When I checked in, the toilet paper in my bathroom has run out, so I went to the front desk to ask. A huge roll of industrial dark brown rough stuff was dumped in front of me and that was that. Since I had no way of opening the paper holder without the proper key, I had to put it on the floor. On two separate occasions handles of a door and a window came off into my hand when I tried to open/close them. Paint was peeling off and mushrooms growing on the ceiling/walls of my bathroom. Such examples illustrate the hap-hazard nature of staying in this hotel. I had no real problems with this as I grew up in a communist society and the only thing I need to do was to switch to "living in communist society" mode and it suddenly became a paradise with real charming points. I really liked the quietness, in spite of the hotel being very close to a busy road and less than a mile from the historic town centre and good transport links. Interesting sight seeing gems close to the hotel include a Jewish Monument (I've never seen anything like it) and a very Stalinist looking culture club type building (I saw many of these when I was kid) with glorious workers' statues on the walls on the river.
