“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 June 2014

The best hotel i have been ever. what attracted me very much was the smiles of everyone of the staff to you, really very friendly atmosphere. I spent one night in this hotel but it remains a good memory for me and defiantly will come back soon!

The location is ideal, in the heart of the old city walking distance from everything. the amazing Danube river with its cafes and restaurants in summer is about 12 minutes walk from the hotel. services are 10/10. friendly and helpful staff, they are very mannerly and decent ( i like very much the bill man Josef with his beautiful smile ). the spa is very good although there is no summing pool. very unique in its elegant furniture. the rooms are large (at least the one i was in and by the way it was standard room). honestly i didn't try the food so i will skip it and leave it to other gusts.

my fist was last May and they arranged for my pick up from the train station with a very decent driver. the reception lady (don't remember the name) was very helpful also the gentleman who was in the reception in the morning.

Highly recommended to travelers to Bratislava with reasonable price compared to the excellent services. the only thing that wasn't good in my stay the view of the room, try to avoid the rooms with backyard view. .

Room Tip: avoid the rooms with backyard view

My husband and I stayed at this hotel prior to joining our cycling group for a trip through Slovakia and Hungary. The accommodations were lovely. The staff was friendly and helpful. The spa located in the basement level was comfortable and clean and offered a jacuzzi, steam room and sauna. Located in the heart of the old town, we were walking distance from shops, restaurants and historical and tourist sites. I would highly recommend this hotel as it was a decadent experience to have stayed here.

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your review. We are very glad you have noticed the cleanliness and staff approach during your stay. It is true our hotel is very popular among overseas travellers as the history of the building goes back to the 13th century so the historic ambiente, great condition of the building along with the arcaded lobby are simply to be admired. Location is also unbeatable - enjoying quiet cobble street still steps away from all the places of interest. Arcadia hotel is truly classy Old Town hotel with modern amenities.

Arguably the friendliest hotel I have ever been to. Add on top of that that the hotel is incredibly charming, perfectly located, and the rooms beyond comfortable, the Arcadia lives up to its 5 star billing.

Room Tip: The staff at the hotel are very responsiveness to any requests (within reason of course). So do not...

Dear Guest,
Thank you very much for your review.
It is true some of the rooms featuring the walls which used to be a part of the old City fortress in 13th century, have no particular view, they are facing the opposite building and small courtyard. What is important there are many more rooms facing one of the Oldest churches in the city or Rooms with unique view to the Bratislava castle and the Michael`s Gate.
Hope to see you again in the future assigning You a room with View to the historic Old town.
All the Best from the Arcadia Hotel Team.

The hotel is as great as it looks in the photos.

The good stuff:
a. Rooms are very well furnished with historic styled furniture
b. Good toiletaries (Penhaligon's)
c. Great location on the edge of the pedestrian zone
d. Nice and helpful staff

The less good stuff:
a. Hearing other guests doing a call with their kids back in the US at 05:00 CET is not a nice way to wake up. I'm not sure why this conversation was so audible since we didn't hear any TV or conversations from other rooms, just a Skype conference call....

Overall the hotel was exactly what I was looking for and I would definitely stay there again - although Bratislava was a far less interesting place to visit than I had anticipated. Expelling the German population and nearly 50 years of communism didn't do the city any favors - why is communist architecture so depressingly dreadful?

Room Tip: Make sure you don't get a "courtyard" view - the noise really bounces around the walls...

Included among a group of the best little hotels and lives up to the billing. A historic structure inside the old town within a short walk of anything a visitor to Bratislava would want to see. Comfortable, clean and very elegant.

This hotel, located in the heart of the old City has rooms that are well appointed and spacious. Extremely clean and has an efficient staff. It is located near many restaurants, bars and attractions, all within short walks. It provided a very nice room at a reasonable price and a short taxi ride from the train and river boats.
