“Sexy room!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2011

Small boutique hotel in the centre of Bratislava - highly recommended.

The good points:
You can walk staright out of the door into the heart of the shops and the old town, culture and markets of Bratislava. In fact, its so central and touristy in location, we kept threading our way through guided parties!

The room was fabulous - , beautifully decorated, large comfortable bed, chaise longue, swanky bathroom and some highly original bedroom touches bordering on S&M!

Staff were very helpful even though we checked in very late, breakfast was lovely

Being a small hotel there is a wonderful, private feel to it all. In fact guests were outnumbered by staff at breakfast

Downsides?

Car parking was a bit of a palaver. About 200m away on a side street and my (Slovakian) boyfriend had to go out early morning to re-buy a ticket from somewhere. Not sure I would have known what to do as a tourist

Booked late and thought I had a good deal until I found an even better deal the day before. Check around as the rates clearly fluctuate.

Enjoy this lovely hotel - don't let on the secret to too many......

The EA Art William is a hidden boutique hotel within a larger 'mall'. Located within steps from the larger historic area, I would highly suggest this hotel. The Replica Eames Chair and Ottoman in the living space was a great touch, and inspired myself to get my own for the new apartment I'm moving into.

Most of the toilet hardware were also of well made brands. The sink was perhaps made out of a solid surface material of either Dupont Corian or LG Hausys HI-MACS, while the the mosaic walls within the toilet are reminiscent of zebra skin.

The breakfast was acceptable, but due to us arriving close to 10am, much of the food was quickly disappearing. I would not say that the breakfast was 4* but it was adequate for a hotel of 3* to 3.5* stature.

One immediate annoyance was that the free wifi was only available in the lobby, however, free wired connection is available upon your own laptop.

Overall: B+ with a definite suggestion.

Meal Suggestion:
Bistro Provence - across from the SAS Radisson, the restaurant was amazingly affordable, and the quality of the food was delicious. For a French provincial restaurant that's located Bratislava, I would say that they did a pretty good job. The restaurant also owns the other two bar (Le Monde) and club (Le Club) that is adjacent to the restaurant. If you were to visit, this is a most visit for a lunch or dinner. We liked it so much we went twice. I had the Risotto with Truffle Mushrooms and dried Tomatoes, and it was wonderful.

The hotel is situated within a small shopping centre. Reception is one of the "shops", then you walk to one side or the other. It doesn't feel like a hotel. Good news is: rooms are spacious, modern, clean and confortable. Other good news is: location is perfect, right in the entrance to the Old Town. But don't expect too many thrills.

We paid Euro 70 per night for what is a beautiful hotel built within a new shopping mall development, right in the heart of the old town. Amazing value for the standard of the rooms etc. Good breakfast too.
The only real issue experienced was with aircon, which is centrally controlled by staff on reception and didn't appear to work at all when in my room. It only came on when I left the room and removed the electronic door card from it's holder.
Free wifi is only available in the lobby and now in rooms...this should be changed to incorporate rooms too.

The art william is in a modern complex with all designer shops and cafes. Dont worry about any noise its really quite well soundproofed. The hotel rooms are roomy and very clean. Modern design. About 2 minute walk into main tourist bars and eating

You have free internet connection, air con, fridge well stocked, sat t.v ,free safe and good wardrobe space.The morning buffet area is in the basement area and is straight forward continental breakfast

The staff are very polite and helpful and booked us a taxi back to airport for 20 euro

We only stayed in Bratislava for a night, so this hotel was wonderful for our visit. It was right in the middle of Old Town and we were able to walk everywhere to see the sites and get a bite to eat or a drink. The hotel itself was very clean and modern with good amenities. With breakfast included, this hotel was a steal.

This hotel is perfect in every way- location, price, room quality, staff, breakfast & very quiet as not set on a road. Stay here for the best experience in Bratislava!
