“Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

I had a lovely stay at the Art Hotel William. The rooms were very clean and well looked after. The bed was amazing and the bath was a great! I would recommend this hotel to anyone! It was well worth it!

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

Nice enough hotel in a great location, but some things are a bit 'strange' and I'm sort of surprised they've got a 4* ranking. The hotel is modern, well maintained and very clean. Rooms are quite large and there's lots of space. There's no bath tub, just a shower, with really good water pressure. Oddly, the water pressure in the bathroom sink is so powerful that even turning it on half way, floods the bathroom with water. It's like a pressure jet. There are no amenities in the room or bathroom at all. No soap, no shampoo, no lotions, no kits of any kind. Just a body wash fixed in the shower and a hand wash fixed near the bathroom sink. They cannot be moved. If you want conditioner, cotton buds, shower cap, etc., bring your own!

There's no tea or coffee making and no hotel communal area where this might be available. The hotel structure is very strange. The reception is in a store front on the ground floor of a shopping mall. The rooms start from the 3rd floor and your room key is needed for the elevator. Plus, once on your floor, you need the room key to get between the elevators and the rooms itself. There are steps to be negotiated with your luggage and automated lighting, which often doesn't switch on.

Once in the room, your key is needed to power everything. There is only a very thin, single duvet on the bed and just two towels in the bathroom. You cannot control the heating at all and it's either off or full on! The hotel manager clearly decides.

Breakfast is good. Served in the basement in another stand alone space.

It's a strange hotel, but well maintained and in a great location. Right on the pedestrian area of the old town, but also really close to the main streets and street metro.

One thing to be aware of Bratislava is the the taxi prices are outrageous. From this hotel to the train station costs $50 USD and it takes 2 minutes. 9 Euro is on the clock before you even buckle up. The hotel recommend busses and metro cars. I can see why!

I stayed here with another Biker on a charity Tour of Europe in May 2012. Once we found this hotel (in a pedestrian zone) we were pleasantly surprised. The hotel entrance is in an arcade in a pedestrian only road. Bike parking was in an underground secure carpark about half kilometre away which was awkward with all the bike gear and luggage. The hotel itself was like a palace, opulent decor, gold taps and porcelain tiles in the large bathroom, huge room for a twin, excellent facilities and a balcony overlooking the shopping arcade. Didn't eat here in the evening, but continental breakfast was very good. We had dinner in an Italian restaurant not far from the hotel in the centre of Bratislava

Love this hotel! It was a little odd to me at first that it is in a shopping mall, but we were soon in love with it. Reasonably priced, but the rooms are beautiful - modern and super comfortable. We had a suite with a living room and balcony. Breakfast was very good, and I can't imagine a better location in Bratislava. Our only complaint is the rather slow check in and check out process; one person working the desk doesn't cut it at prime times.

An elegant and comfortable hotel in the center of Bratislava. The romms are big, luxuous and cheap for a 4 stars hotel. The hotel is located near the old town (less than 5 minutes walk) and quite during the night.
Concerning the breakfast, the buffet is good but maybe a little too poor for an hotel of such standing.
Unfortunately, the staff and the service are not welcome.
Anyway, it is a good address in Bratislava.
