“Our type of hotel--Good value, friendly and clean!”
Reviewed 23 October 2010

Clean and quiet hotel situated off of the main road in a quaint safe neighborhood! Outstanding staff, very helpful, and most of the staff speaks fluent English. Breakfast includes made to order eggs or traditional meat and cheese platter. The hotel has a small closet to store bikes, and street parking is available out front. There are limited parking spots, so if driving, reserve your spot when booking your room.

The room was spacious and had a desk, tv, mini-fridge and free wi-fi. The shower was big with great pressure. The backyard adds a nice option for post sightseeing or business meeting relaxation. We chilled a bottle of wine and sat outside on a swing next to the fountain. There is also a covered area with a table.

Hotel Arcus is a 10 min walk to the edge of downtown and 15 mins to the center of town (restaurants and bars). If you do not have to stay in the center of town and do not mind a short walk book this hotel.

We enjoyed biking around town, and along the Danube. There are a lot of walking and biking trails along the edge of town.

Can't Fault It
Reception was very efficient & we were taken direct to our room.
It is worth noting, a nice touch, they will check you in for return flights if you ask.
The room, 7a, was large and very clean with a good sized balcony. Also it had two good sized armchairs.
Location as has been said before maximum 10 minutes walk to the Old Town.
Breakfast is very good with items cooked to order.
Worth noting also that there is a good bar in the next road Sasinkova called “Omama”

I was very pleased with Hotel Arcus. The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms very clean and charming. Staff are very nice and helpful. It is a 10 min walk to downtown. This makes the hotel very quiet at night and so you can get a good nights sleep. There is a nice park nearby. For the price the hotel is excellant. Breakfast is also very good and one of the servers will cook you eggs anyway that you would like. Bratislava is a really nice town. I reccomend going to Devin castle and one of the receptionists can tell you how to get there by bus very easily. No tour guide needed. Overall my stay in Bratislava was very pleasant and I reccomend that others come see this charming town.

I think this hotel could be a good one for a lot of people, but just not ones with small children. The good part is that the breakfast was very tasty, the room was huge for European standards. (There was a couch, a desk, a table and two chairs, and an extra fold out bed in our room in addition to the bed and bathroom.) There's free and very fast wi-fi and a public access computer. The tram line isn't too far away either and parking was just 3 euros a day out on the street in front. But the problem is that it was just too far from City Center--at least a 20-25 minute walk to the edge. Trying to get back in time for naps was horrific. There's also not a lot around the hotel so you have to go the City Center to do stuff.

We arrived around 9pm following our flight from the UK. Check in was still open and we were greeted by an extremely courteous member of staff who spoke excellent english. Check-in was efficient and we were in our rooms within a matter of minutes.

Rooms are spacious and clean and while there are hotels more centrally located, a 10 minute walk sees you in the heart of the old town (there is a tram stop at the end of the street but we never felt the need to use the trams).

Breakfast is fine and a great way to set you up for the day.
