Good hotel for business travel or city trip. The location is amazing both for a people with rented car and for one using public transport as well. Also, there is about 10-15 minutes walk until the Old City center. Big shopping street is around the corner.
In a hotel you will meet friendly staff. Very basic but acceptable breakfast. The rooms are modest but nice and clean. We found our room romantic enough. However, we suffered a bit from noises during the night. Drunk and happy crowds of tourists walked through the street :) Also, the hotel havn't elevator, and the upstairs may become a nightmare for elder, too tired or disabled people.

Room Tip: Not the first and not the last floors.

I spent 3 nights in the hotel. The location is perfect, in the center of the city. Rooms are modest, but clean. I did not spend a lot of time in the hotel, basically I was just sleeping there. Service was excellent both on the reception desk and in the restaurant. I can recommend for a short business trip. Inexpensive, good sleep quality, wifi in the room, that was all I needed.

New guy at reception couldn't have been more helpful. Stayed in room 2 (brigitte bardot). Good size room, nothing about the place was particularly bad or particularly brilliant. We were only staying one night on the way back from Eastern Slovakia so as a place to lay our heads it was pretty good. Lack of shower curtains was a bit weird, but otherwise bathroom clean and decent. We were gone early so I couldn't rate the breakfast. Again, they were helpful in the morning and sorted out a taxi to the airport for us (€13 , not too bad) really quickly. Wifi worked fine. I don't know if It's the kind of place for a long stay, but it did the job for our needs. Two major positives about the place were the location (stone's throw from the old city & all the good spots) and the price. Got a very good deal of €70 for 3 people, although I think it's usually a bit more than that. All in all, not amazing but not bad at all.

We stayed for 4 nights and our room was not cleaned once.
We just about had enough toilet paper to last the visit, and luckily always hang our towels up to dry. We had to take the bags of rubbish we accumulated out ourselves to the street.
We stayed in Room 2 (Brigitte Bardot) and it was fine - there are actually 2 bedrooms which we had'nt realised, one with a single bed in it. The double bed was good quality, no complaints there.
There was a TV but no channels in English plus it made a vibrating noise when turned on which was pretty irritating. There were 2 fridges but one didn't work - but there was no sign or anything to let you know so we had to throw out the small food items we put in there on the first night.
The bathroom, as others have mentioned, had no shower curtain - and also had no way to hang the shower up, you had to hold it by hand. This was really bad. Actually to avoid destroying the entire bathroom you had to sit down in the bath and shower yourself. Not so good for my 6'2 husband.
The breakfast was included with the room but it wasn't great - tea/coffee, 2 slices of toast, 2 slices of cheese and 1 of horrible fake ham, some butter and jam. Also people are smoking as breakfast is served in the bar and there is no non-smoking area. The bar was expensive and they had no beer on tap. The staff were pleasant no complaints there.
The location is great very central - but also very noisy at night, plus the tram noises start at 4.30am. The wireless internet was perfect altho my husband did have to go and reset it one night! Also there are no staff there at night from about 11pm, so do not lose your keys or you are on the streets for the night!
Overall I would not recommend the hotel. But then again I wouldn't really recommend Bratislava as a destination either...

You know, I'm always skeptical of reviews with one star, because it seems mostly that folks take one thing and blow it out of proportion, that's why this has 2 stars, even though there isn't much good I can say about the Film Hotel.
Starting with the good: The hotel is relatively central, i.e. you can walk everywhere in old town, as it's a small old town surrounded by a not very interesting belt of high-rises from the Soviet era. It's small, i.e. less same-old same-old. The entrance is welcoming.
As you head up the creaky narrow dark winding staircase the foreboding begins. The room is relatively large shows sign of wear, is sparsely furnished, but has a modern tiled bathroom with bathtub, but unfortunately no shower curtain. It was a nice day when we arrived, about 20C in temperature, but the room was really hot and stuffy. We thought: "hey, no problem we put on the big airconditioning unit when we get home tonight."
That night we came home to find that not only was it even hotter in our room, but also it smelled like old french fry oil. Apparently the bathroom fan is directly connected to the kitchen of the restaurant. Horrible. The air conditioning unit of course didn't manage to cool down the room (a problem we heard from the two other couples that we knew and staid in the hotel as well) and so it was a noisy, hot, smelly night. We tried to change rooms, but the hotel was fully booked and so we checked out and I have to admit that the front desk staff was correct in the way they handled the situation. They knew the smell issue (apparently our room is the only one that has it, Room 5: Julia Roberts), gave a 10% discount on the room and no cancellation fee. By luck we found and and stayed for Euro 30 more at the Michalska Brana hotel the next night, which was fabulous.
