“A good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

The hotel is located just across the road from the Old Town, great for tourists. They also allow pets. There is plenty of parking. The rooms were very comfortable and clean. There is air conditioning and the rooms are very quiet with the windows closed. So no traffic noise. The staff were all very nice & helpful and most speak English. Breakfast was sufficient but the restaurant is a joke. The prices are very reasonable.

This hotel is close to the city centre and old town. For the most part it is clean, but it's gaudy orange interior (think easy jet!) is well overdue a refurb. Lights didn't work in the corridor to our room, our air conditioning did work however. Breakfast was poor, both in selection and quality; the earlier you eat the better as they don't replenish anything after 9am if at all. One plus point for me is that the parking is on site. Staff our friendly but scruffy and lack professionalism. I wouldn't stay here again.

Horrible experience. The room didnt have A/C even though it is listed as an amenity in their website. Room is facing a big hallway so it is not even possible to open the windows in hot summer nights since it gets loud and lots of light. Rude and unfriendly reception adds to the disaster. Stay away from this inn!

The only reason why you should stay in the Tatra Hotel is because if you EVER make the decision to go to Bratislava, you can stay in the center; it's not a big city, but still.. Always convenient when your hotel is only 5min away from the historic center.

Anyway it is rated as a 4-star hotel but does NOT deserve it all! We arrived at our hotel around 1pm and checked in at the reception - not so welcoming staff, but everything seemed all right. Then we head up to our rooms, apparently there's no airconditioning! To me, there cannot be a 4-star hotel without airconditioned rooms in the middle of the summer (30°C+). But the hotel was so "friendly" to state in their information guide that "only 50% of the rooms have airconditioning". During our stay, we found out there were mobile fans inside the washing rooms, but when we called the reception to get one, they refused and told us they didn't have any.

Furthermore, when we opened our bathroom it seemed like the toilet wasn't as clean as expected. Sleeping was nearly impossible because of the heat, plus the mattress was too hard (even though I know people who like that more than soft ones) and the pillows too thin. When you opened the only window available, you could hear the noise of other guests in the early morning.
Breakfast was 'ok', not so much choice and not always fresh.

I do not recommend it to anyone unless you're sleeping in the reception hall where there was in fact airconditioning all the time.

Room Tip: Ask specifically for rooms with airconditioning during the summer

The hotel rooms were waaay too hot. Do not book this hotel when it is 25° C (77 °F) or hotter. Less than 50% of the rooms have air conditioning and there is no way to know if the room you booked does.

Breakfast was also not up to par compared to other 4-star hotels. Very little choice, average coffee, dry bread etc...

Location is good, within 10 min walking you're in the absolute center of the city (which isn't so hard: the old part of the city is really, really small.)

Personnel was not very friendly, they didn't even ask if everything was okay when we left, just a simple 'goodbye'.

I've stayed in 2-star hotels that outclass this hotel by a landslide.

Room Tip: When making a reservation, call the hotel to be sure you have AC in the room. If not, don't book...

Really nice hotel with walking distance from old part of the city. With a brochure from information point you will get a nice discount, we paid for 2 ppl's / night with breakfast 56€ + 12€ for parking.

While the Tatra Hotel is situated in a very good location, only a few minutes walk from the old town, it certainly isn't a 4 star hotel. By UK standards, you're looking as a high 2 or low 3. The easiest way to summarize is to say everything is basic......rooms, bathrooms, breakfast. Having said that, there was nothing to complain about other than there was no iron available.
