“Great value for money”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

Great value for money, the staff is very helpful, great location near the tram, bus station and trolley bus station.
Near the shopping street, quiet street close to the city center
A Hollywood theme runs throughout the hotel, from the Oscar statue and framed photographs in reception to all the rooms being named after film star.
Rooms has ACs
However WiFi is not that good in the rooms

The Film Hotel is situated in a quiet street close to the city centre. As the name suggests, a Hollywood theme runs throughout the hotel, from the Oscar statue and framed photographs in reception to all the rooms being named after film stars (Marilyn Monroe, Paul Newman etc). It's a pleasant enough place to stay, and WiFi is available throughout, which is a big plus. We did find the service somewhat lacking though, particularly at breakfast, where we had to wait 30 minutes to get served. Still, a perfectly satisfactory alternative to the faceless chain hotels - you can't accuse it of not having character.

I was in beautiful and cosmopolitan Prague but wanted something else so I took the train and went to Bratislava. Day and night difference with Prague. Very small old town, new town had mostly shops still in Soviet style, no international brands etc...
Nightlife during the week almost zero. But that also has it charms however the country and city is not very interesting and beautiful. I feel sad to say so because I do not want to do harm to its people but even they say the same... So OK for one night but for me not more, I was happy to go back to Prague for the remaining days of my trip.
The hotel is right next to the main shopping street but in a more quiet street. So very good location. Everything is more or less inspired by movies and their stars so you will find many pictures, names and statues of film related things. They have a popular bar and restaurant as well. Reception was very good and I think students were working their, wo were fluent in English and their customer service was perfect. Rooms were very clean but less inspired than the ground floor bar and restaurant with only the name of an actor at the door and inside two old pictures of that actor. Breakfast is extra at 3,5 Euro. I paid 60 Euro for a single room. Bratislava, although not very popular by tourists, has rather high hotel prices !!
The room was very clean but very classic style, under the roof. So nothing bad at all !
I hope for the poorer SLowakian people the future will be better and more tourists to come to Bratislava but then the government has to change a lot...

Good hotel for business travel or city trip. The location is amazing both for a people with rented car and for one using public transport as well. Also, there is about 10-15 minutes walk until the Old City center. Big shopping street is around the corner.
In a hotel you will meet friendly staff. Very basic but acceptable breakfast. The rooms are modest but nice and clean. We found our room romantic enough. However, we suffered a bit from noises during the night. Drunk and happy crowds of tourists walked through the street :) Also, the hotel havn't elevator, and the upstairs may become a nightmare for elder, too tired or disabled people.

Room Tip: Not the first and not the last floors.

I spent 3 nights in the hotel. The location is perfect, in the center of the city. Rooms are modest, but clean. I did not spend a lot of time in the hotel, basically I was just sleeping there. Service was excellent both on the reception desk and in the restaurant. I can recommend for a short business trip. Inexpensive, good sleep quality, wifi in the room, that was all I needed.

New guy at reception couldn't have been more helpful. Stayed in room 2 (brigitte bardot). Good size room, nothing about the place was particularly bad or particularly brilliant. We were only staying one night on the way back from Eastern Slovakia so as a place to lay our heads it was pretty good. Lack of shower curtains was a bit weird, but otherwise bathroom clean and decent. We were gone early so I couldn't rate the breakfast. Again, they were helpful in the morning and sorted out a taxi to the airport for us (€13 , not too bad) really quickly. Wifi worked fine. I don't know if It's the kind of place for a long stay, but it did the job for our needs. Two major positives about the place were the location (stone's throw from the old city & all the good spots) and the price. Got a very good deal of €70 for 3 people, although I think it's usually a bit more than that. All in all, not amazing but not bad at all.
