My boyfriend and I booked a private double room with Freddie Next To Mercury because the reviews were good and the price was right (and Justin just loved the name). We were able to park our rental car on the street right out front and check in was quick and easy. We were given room number 43 and headed up stairs. When I unlocked the door, I was surprised to find another staircase! Up we went and entered into an entire apartment! It was so much bigger than we expected! We had a large private balcony, private bathroom, a living room with couch and TV and small kitchenette, and then a ladder leading into a lofted sleeping area. This was literally bigger than our last apartment in Milwaukee. I wish we could have stayed longer. While we loved the cozy, quirkiness of the lofted sleep area, the bed was two twin mattresses on the floor. Not the most comfortable and we each had sore necks after two nights. It was also 31 degrees Celsius on our first day in Bratislava, so sleeping in a small loft on the top floor was extremely hot, but they did provide a fan for us which helped. Those comfort issues would be my one and only complaint. Otherwise, the place was great!
We were able to walk to the old town in about 10-15 minutes. The area of town was safe. We left a rental car parked on the street for two days with no problems. The staff provided us a map of the town and sold beers and other beverages at the front desk, which was staffed 24 hours a day. We had breakfast one morning for 2.50 euro each. There was coffee, cereal, bread with jam, meat and cheese. It was nice enough, but many other comparable hostels that I've stayed in would include this type of breakfast in the price. But for 2.50, you can't complain. On the second morning, we just ate at a place in town. Overall, I'm very happy with Freddie Next To Mercury and have already begun recommending it to my friends!
