Reviewed 13 September 2010

The staff there I found to be great. Very friendly and helpfull (which I wasn't sure what to expect in Bratislava). The hotel itself is close to a lot of the nightlife and the center core of the city. The rooms of course are from the old world era, so don't expect a lot. The showers are pretty much a bathtub which takes a bit getting used to. The blankets for the beds are unique and may be a little strange at the start. Plus the rooms are a bit chilly in the morning (not sure I'd want to be here in the winter).

All in all I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again if I ever go back. The only downfall I found was that the restaurant/bar there (cheapest beer in the city they claim and I don't doubt it) closed fairly early at night. Was hoping to get a beer at 1am and found it was closed up. Other then that, I enjoyed my stay and if you don't care about fancy rooms and paying for a ton of amenities then this place is perfect and cheap...

The good points are - its location, the breakfast, the foyer area and the bar, free internet and 1 euro per half litre of Staropramen.

Bad points as lack of hot water for 80% of my stay and the dilapidated rooms.

Surprisigly enough - I had a good enough stay, it was value for money..

If your searching for that old Cold War experience check into Hotel Kyjev. It took us back 15 years when we first traveled the former Eastern Europe. Plywood interior, absurd grotesque lobby (including an old Trabby), waitinglines for the reception and breakfast buffet, seventies carpeting that seen better days. You wanted the Cold War experience, you getting it. The only concession they seem to have made is that the beds aren't feet-end to feet-end (as in the old days) but next to each other. The view towards the castle side is amazing and since the curtains are so thing the illumination outside gives you enough light to brush your teeth. Is it a horror hotel? No, the staff can be friendly and in fact the whole place is good for a laugh...for one or two nights. It's charming in a warped kind of way. And the location just next to the old town is great.

The hotel staff is friendly and very helpful. The reception is normal, with a retro style. But the rooms are very bad. Probably the worst hotel we have ever been. Our room was unclean, lack of privacy - you could hear everything from the next room - and the lack of security makes us not recommend this hotel, even for the price and with a good breakfast.

If your thing is basic rooms, with towels that probably last had cotten 1000 washes ago, bathrooms from the horror movies...
Now let me be fair.
The staff are great, the front desk are very helpful.
If you are looking for a cheap hotel for a weekend, or stag weekend, this is the place for you, but do not expect 3 stars, it isn't, and anyone that says it is hasn't travelled outside of Slovakia or dare I say post soviet influence. I would honestly say in Western European terms I would class it as 1 star.

This hotel is extremely good value for money and is in a very good location.It has basic rooms but they are clean ,towels changed every day with plenty of hot water.Always ask for top floor rooms as they are away from stag parties.The staff could not be more friendly or helpful and if you wish to leave your bags there is no charge.It can get a little noisy with the trams but not really a problem.It is a little dark in reception due to lighting,and the lifts do have a mind of their own, but hey ,the bar area is good and beer really is 1euro.The breakfasts are good and everyone should find something to their taste.All in all,a good basic ++ hotel,friendly staff,good location and real value for money.

It sounded interesting and it was. True, parts of the hotel are in need of some TLC but for value for money, we found it great, the room was clean and the breakfast food was OK, we have had a lot worse in places many time more expensive; both in our late 60's, we enjoyed our stay there,.we got the tram from Stanica Hlavna, 13, don't know if it's allowed but we stayed on till it reached SNP (on its way back to SH, strangely it doesn't stop on its way down) and we walked just round the corner, a tower block, can't miss it, easier to spot than the Tesco sign!.. try Kofola from the vending machine or Tesco's...
